Lobbying legislation updates

As of March 1st, legislation concerning lobbying has been put into effect with the aim of promoting transparency and strengthening the rule of law. The focus now shifts to ensuring compliance with its provisions, both by government officials and lobbyists seeking meetings with them. These meetings often involve addressing the demands of interest groups they represent, with economic interests at their core. Non-compliance with the law constitutes a criminal offense, punishable either by fine or imprisonment. 

In a recent interview with “Kathimerini” newspaper, our spokesperson, Dr. Nicolas Kyriakides, shed light on the implementation of lobbying regulations, stressing the critical need for transparency and accountability.
