Abstract :

An evaluation of the sophisticated public interest theory which takes into account lobbying group influence reveals that some interest groups are indeed influential in political decisions and that some of them work for the public good. The study reveals that interest groups do ave a significant effect on policy decisions so that the task would be to identify these interest groups whose goals that are in line with the public interest.
