The article examines the pre-election programs of the parliamentary presented parties and coalitions in the 48-th National Assembly. The focus of the research is placed on the ideas for more intensive intervention of the state and for supporting companies operating in key sectors of the economy - energy, tourism and agriculture. The report also addresses the question to what extent this approach reflects a different perspective on the role of regulatory institutions that have specific control powers in the areas under consideration. The main applied method is a comparative analysis, which allows, based on the study of party program documents during the period 2017-2022, to make an assessment of changes in ideas about the state intervention in these areas.
