Singapore Leader Highest Paid in the World

The highest paid leader in the world goes to Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. PM Lee is paid US$2.47 million and is 4.7 times more than second placed Hong Kong Chief Donald Tsang of US516,000. From the figures below, I would say many cabinet ministers in Singapore can easily beat Donald Tsang's pay.
  1. Lee Hsien Loong - Singapore (US$2.47 million)
  2. Donald Tsang Yum-Kuen - Hong Kong (US$516,000)
  3. Barack Obama - United States (US$400,000)
  4. Brian Cowen - Ireland (US$341,000)
  5. Nicolas Sarkozy - France (US$318,000)
  6. Angela Merkel - Germany (US$303,000)
  7. Gordon Brown - UK (US$279,000)
  8. Stephen Harper - Canada (US$246,000)
  9. Taro Aso - Japan (US$243,000)
  10. Kevin Rudd - Australia (US$229,000)
