ATHENS – Members of Greece’s Parliament, who aren’t working in January because of the campaign for national elections, have been asked to return the 6,099 euros ($7,060) they had already been paid, almost 10 times the minimum wage they had voted to cut.

Prime Minister and New Democracy Conservative leader Antonis Samaras dissolved Parliament late in December after he was unable to get support to vote his party Vice-President Stavros Dimas as the country’s symbolic President.

In a statement the Parliament’s finance committee made the request for the lawmakers to return their January salaries but there was no word on whether it would be ignored.
