Who Is Most Affected By Public Policy?

March 28th, 2019

However, today we find that these are the sectors most affected by public policies. This has been the disinterest or rejection of broad sections of society to politics in general, this has meant that the power is kept within a narrow circle of people and groups have been organized to call an elitism . Hence that lobbyists are the ones to determine the political agenda, ie they are the ones who decide what issues or problems are those from the institutions will be treated. We therefore find that in certain sectors in Fuerteventura, you press and try to grab as much space in the media for certain themes (the second airport, golf courses, Mountain Tindayaa ) enter the political agenda. While problems such as health, education, environment and insecurity are relegated to the background. Are the parties responsible for the management of public affairs, which often are benefiting from these moves, for they divert attention from the really important problems thus hiding their own incompetence. From these lobbyists seek to legitimize using masses of demobilized citizens, to whom they sell their interests as if they were general needs. When the first loser is the ordinary citizen who sees significant amounts of public money are intended to benefit and satisfaction of a small group of companies and individuals.

We can see how are you minorities are occupying all positions of power and responsibility for what is not unusual to see one person holding office in political parties, neighborhood groups, parents associations, etc.. As selflessness and most induced conformism has led to the decision-making in public affairs rests on a very real minority, which has been associated with a clear deterioration of democracy and its most basic stumbling. At present there is no doubt that the major parties respond to some very specific interests. We found some very close relationships between political parties and certain lobbies. First, as mentioned above, we find that in many instances are the same people who occupy key positions within the party, while so do the network of interest groups. On the other hand political parties have seen their transformation from the a partitions mass , financed through contributions from militants, a partitions cartel has been a growing dependence on donations.

Having found interest groups a convenient way to influence decision-making parties, ie parties now have been serving the lobbyists who finance them. But this situation should not push us to skepticism and discouragement, let alone to the acceptance of this situation, since it would deny our own status as citizens. On the contrary, should encourage us to denounce injustice wherever they occur and to expose the hidden interests that lurk behind the policies. It’s time to organize, each in its own way, and awaken the lethargy in which we have sunk to recover the lost space in the centers of decision making and avoid serving private interests. Edgar Alejandro Trujillo Freivalds General Coordinator of ICF Abstract: This article is about the influence they have at present lobbies on decision making on public issues of demobilization of most citizens.
