    I'm not happy with that either, that's why I added the disclaimer at the end of post #2, for any eventuality. I just thought it might help somewhere, and the thread had to start someplace. Κάνω και για εφαλτήριο, κι ας με πατήσουν όσοι ξέρουν καλύτερα, αρκεί να πάει ψηλά το νήμα.

    The tenant of the day?
    The tenant at that time?
    The occasional tenant? (occasional= pertaining to an occasion, not occasional= infrequent)
    Ή απλά το τρως και δεν φαίνεται καν.

    Καλημέρα και σας ευχαριστώ όλους!
    Μάλλον θα πάω με τη λύση του Θέμη, αλλά έχω ακόμα περισσότερες προτάσεις τώρα.

    Pal, you may also want to consider: each respective tenant / the respective tenant.

    Καλημέρα. Αν όχι τίποτα, στο παρελθόν είχα (σε συγκεκριμένη περίπτωση) προτιμήσει το «of the day».

    the government of the day

    Καλημέρα και χρόνια πολλά, nickel.

    I know it doesn't correspond exactly, but it's commonly used, nevertheless : (each or the) responsible tenant or the tenant concerned? There would be instances, I think where it would work.

    re: the government of the day (nickel's suggestion), I think the following works just as well.

    The responsible government (= the government of the day) must work for protection of rights of children working in the cotton farming areas or are at risk of being engaged in ...

    Maybe we could add “in turn”? Μπορεί να ακούγεται περιττο (but it might bring us a little closer to the meaning?);

    In some cases, anyway?
    “Each” tenant “in turn” ....?
    “Each” government “in turn” ...?

    each tenant/government (concerned) in turn must ...
    the respective tenant/government in turn must ...

    It works when “government/tenant” is the subject, anyway.
