17 - PARLIAMENTARY CONSTITUTIONS WITH MAJORITARIAN ELECTIONS: THE MAIN ACTORS AND THE LOBBYISTS

Since we are dealing with a parliamentary system lobbying will, on the whole, occur at the summits of the party hierarchies. It is however likely to be less influential than in the parliamentary-proportional case, because interests plays a less important role in the politics of this system. In particular, since the governing party is likely to change, and since the programs of both parties are likely to be close to the median, and thus quite similar, fusions of interest organizations and parties are not likely to occur.
