Keywords: corruption, lobbying management, lobbying agreement, administrative agreement, lawmaking, municipal-legal acts.

Abstract

The objective of the article is a comprehensive analysis of the problem of interpretation of contractual relations and their management into the legal field of the national legislation to achieve the significant reduction of corruption at the municipal level on the territory of our country. To achieve this objective, a set of philosophical-worldview, general scientific (analysis, synthesis) and special-scientific methods (systemic, structural-functional, comparative-legal) have been used. It is proved that lobbying is a subjective factor that affects the process of municipal legal regulation. Emphasis is placed on the expediency of introducing the contractual form of regulation of relations on lobbying management decisions at the municipal level. The contract on lobbying at the municipal level is defined as a multilateral agreement between the customer, lobbyist and the body of local government, which has a public-law character, establishes contractual rules of law on lobbying to influence the process of adopting normative municipal-legal acts. It is concluded that it is extremely important to organize and regulate lobbying in any country in the world, because if this phenomenon cannot be completely eradicated, it must be regulated from the legal point of view, which, in the end, will significantly reduce the level of corruption in the society.
