Lobbying Procedures in Cyprus – Principles and Provisions of Law of 2022 No. 20(I)/2022

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

Lobbying is defined as any attempt by individuals or private interest groups to influence the decisions of government. 

Lobbying, on behalf of a group or individual, can be undertaken by businesses or individuals, wanting to influence regulation, legislation, or other government policies, decisions or actions. 

Lobbying ensures in a productive government, by giving stakeholders access to the development and implementation of public policies. Professionals involved in public decision-making processes (communication with a government official who, by virtue of their position, have the authority to initiate such a procedure or to formulate its content or to determine its final outcome), must implement lobbying regulation. 

However, these professionals need be aware of the provisions of the legislation and be able to effectively practise them.
