Like all nations, the people of the Ukraine has a rich and colorful history. This nation has grown up for thousands of years to become the country that it is today. Ukraine had some very tough challenges during the 20th century. The nation was a former satellite country that was a part of Russia for a very long time. After gaining its independence in 1991 it became a semi-presidential republic.
The country operated under this type of governmental system until 2004 when the nation operated under a parliamentary system. By 2010 the government went back to a semi-presidential republic. This only lasted for four more years and in 2014 the nation started a parliamentary system once again. As you can tell, this is a very confusing and frustrating condition for a nation to endure. In 2018, Ukraine’s constitution is still being challenged to its core.

In August of 2017, Professor Choudhry was invited to Kiev (the capital city of Ukraine) to help the nation to figure out what type of government they should use. This to say the very least, is an extremely daunting task. The Ukraine does not have a quick and easy solution to their constitutional dilemma. Check indiawest.com to read about his published work.
Choudhry noted that the democratization process of the Ukraine is flawed. The reason why it is such a challenging process has to do with weak political parties, a concentration of presidential powers and a complex legislature electoral system. Plus, there is even a communist party that factors into the political turmoil that the country if facing. For more of his views on politically related issues, hit this link on interview.net.
Sujit Choudhry knows that finding a solution will not be an easy thing to do. He is just honored that he can be a part of this process. Hopefully, he will be able to help find a solution that will help the Ukrainian people to have a stable government. More to read on constitutionaltransitions.org.
