Finally: The salaries of Knesset members will not be updated in January 2024 as they were supposed to, but only a year later. MK salaries, which stand at NIS 47,<> gross, were supposed to increase in January as part of the indexation to the average wage in the economy.

Knesset Committee Chairman Ofir Katz decided that the automatic increase in the salaries of Knesset members would be canceled, and the decision was approved by the committee members unanimously. According to Katz, "There is no need to explain the obvious, we are elected officials, we must always set an example, and especially at this difficult time. We will continue to act to help the economic situation of citizens and stabilize the economy."

The Albashan Committee, the public committee for determining the salaries of Knesset members, also recommended freezing wage increases. According to the committee's position, "The war brings severe economic consequences to the economy and economic damage to many of the country's citizens. Under these circumstances, Knesset members must lead by example and waive the expected increase in their salaries."

The committee proposed that in 2024 the members of the preparation plan continue to receive their current gross salary of NIS 47,2025, while the salary revision in 2024 will be based on the increase in 2023, without taking into account the increase in the average wage in <>.

The committee also recommended that the same decision be made regarding the other officeholders, namely the president, the prime minister, ministers and their deputies, and judges. According to the committee, it "will convey to the public a message of solidarity, responsibility and values." A decision on the matter will be submitted to the Finance Committee for approval.
