Pedro Sánchez, acting Spanish president, has decided to postpone the increase in pensions by 0.9% until there is a new government formed, spokeswoman Isabel Celaá said in a press conference on Friday. 

In addition, the cabinet has also delayed the approved increase in salaries of civil servants, nor the upward revision of the minimum wage. The 2% increase in salaries has already been agreed with unions, but will not come into effect until Spain has a new executive.

According to Celaá, the increase in pensions, in line with the Consumer Price Index, will be "at the right moment when the new government is installed" and will be applied "retroactively." 

Regarding the minimum wage, Celaá has embarked on a "social dialogue" between unions and employers' organizations for an upward revision.
