Trust is critical in the realization of effectiveness in the government’s performance to its people. While many governments have been faced with the challenge of maintaining trust between them and their citizens, Norway has been found to be an exception. Several reformations have been encountered by the Norwegian political system yet despite them, none has been able to see forth Norway embrace the process of lobbyism within its boundaries. This can be considered the main reason that subjected Norway as one of the countries with the highest level of trust between its citizens and its political system. The relationship between the public and the politicians, in many countries, has been based on the benefits that politicians end up receiving at the accounts of the public. This has been majorly contributed to by the lobbying process that has found incorporation within the political system of many western countries. While the practice is central to the information collected essential in the effectiveness of policymaking, many political system in the countries associated with Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as well as the European Union counterparts that are linked to the lack of trust between the parliamentarians and the interest of the public. Primarily, this has been linked to the deception that has been associated with the backdoor process of decision making that overrules the entire lobbying process. To some extent, this has been influenced by the political system and the concept of decentralization that has seen many countries engage in practicing lobbying. Research Onion is employed in the study and through a qualitative methodology, the information was collected and analyzed towards pointing out the findings for the research.
