TWO draft laws dealing with lobbying have been submitted for the September parliamentary session; one was authored by the NOVA party and the other was submitted by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) on August 18.

The KDH caucus submitted the same draft law that was not passed in September 2013, the SITA newswire reported. The party maintains that the law on lobbying fits well with the anti-corruption policy that aims to make contacts between constitutional officials and interest groups and lobbyist more transparent.

The law defines who can be a lobbyist and under what conditions lobbying activities can be pursued, as well as the rights and duties of lobbyists and public officials. The law also sets out sanctions for violating the law.
