Thimphu, May 06, 2009: Office of the Attorney General plans to present its proposal during the upcoming parliament session to increase the salary and perks of the constitutional position holder. 

According to sources at the AG office, the draft proposal has suggested better perks and facilities, besides salary than civil servants get. 

Chief and members of the election commission, attorney general, auditor general, chief and members of the pay commission, chief and members of the anti corruption commission, chief justice (though not yet appointed) among others would be treated differently than other government officials. 

Currently, the constitutional position holders get salary, perks and facilities equal to Executive level 1 position holders in the bureaucracy.
