Becoming president, ambition or vocation? Hard to say. There are enormous responsibilities associated with being the chief ruler of a country. As we all know, managing an entire country is not easy. Difficult decisions follow one another. The pressures on our heads of state are overwhelming. Indeed, goes hand in hand with these heavy charges, a fairly high salary.
Huge salary for presidents
The income received by each head of state varies depending on the country in question, of its extent as well as its wealth. The amount per month also depends on the advantages inherent in being president, before and after mandate (housing, travel or stay allowances, pensions and pensions, bonuses, etc.).
The differences between the average salary of an employee of the country and its leader thus increase visibly. Even reaching 4 to 10 times or more of the average income of an employee in one year. But these inequalities vary from country to country.
Knowing the salaries of our chairmen allows us to situate their level internationally. Especially since there are significant differences between the remuneration of each leader in the world.
