88. Every election officer is entitled to receive remuneration or an expense allowance from the municipality for the duties he performs.
The council of the municipality may establish a tariff of remuneration or allowances; it may delegate that power to the executive committee, if any. Any tariff fixing a remuneration or allowance lower than that fixed in the tariff established by the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Regions and Land Occupancy under Title III requires the approval of the Minister.
An election officer of a municipality which has not established a tariff or which has not fixed the officer’s remuneration or allowance in the tariff is entitled to the remuneration or allowance fixed in the tariff established by the Minister or, failing that, agreed upon with the returning officer.
