What kind of people are we trying to attract?

Another recommendation of the review committee that I fail to understand is the need for a National Bonus to supplement the ministers’ income. When a politician fights an election, it is a tacit understanding that if elected he will serve them to the best of his ability and with the dedication that is required of his office. Isn’t it a given that it is his job to grow the citizens’ median income, including the bottom 20%, and cut the unemployment rate of citizens and grow the GDP? Why then is there the need to give added incentives to do all these things when these are exactly what he is elected to do and entrusted by the people to do it well? Running a country comes with the good years and the bad years. What do we do with the bad years? Dock his pay?
