Special interest groups

Special interest groups are present at the National assembly, in spite of the classical notion of government institutions which advocates that elected members act only for the general interest. An analysis of the characters of discussion on some bills proves that their intervention has had a certain effect. On the other hand, they insure that deputies learn of the conditions of existence of certain socio-professional groups of which they would otherwise not have known. By providing representatives with information, lobbies allow them to take a more confident stand when they face ministers during legislative discussion. But, sometimes, their marked influence withdraws all freedom of movement from representatives during voting.
