Ask the Constitution Expert Sujit Choudhry on the Current State of Democracy

Professor Sujit Choudhry’s name continues to hit news headlines following his recent concern on the current state of the democracy in the modern political world. Sujit is a professor of Law at the University of California and the founding Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions. He is a renowned figure in the field of politics and comparative constitutional law where he has been as an advisor for over 20 years (constitutionaltransitions.org.). He is an expert in training civil servants, political party leaders, bureaucrats, parliamentarians, advising various technical experts etc. He has some expertise in drafting various technical reports and memorandum. He serves in the World Bank Institute as a consultant and as a member of UN Mediation Roster.

When it comes to the constitution, Sujit Choudhry has played a major role in helping dignitaries from foreign countries who wanted to build constitutions for their home countries. Besides his advisory duties, he is a renowned writer with the current publication called Constitutional Democracies in Crisis where he plainly dissects various  issues that reflects political climate of the US. His mentions show deterioration of democracy in both the media and political field as well as how the political climate of Poland, Germany, and South Africa is a threat to democracy.

Sujit Choudhry commences with a controversial tweet by the Former AG in President Obama’s reign, Eric Holder. In his tweet Holder says that the American have to be seen and heard thus any termination of Robert Mueller who is the White House Special Counsel is a red line which will lead to demonstrations. Choudhry terms the “red lines” of Holder a good example of democracy failure. He goes ahead to term some rules like presidential terms as causes of chaos. In his discussion on the political climate, he discusses how the current Poland and Germany government has suppressed the constitution to ensure they rule and win smoothly in future elections which he calls democratic backsliding.

The tweet of Holder is also democratic backsliding according to Sujit Choudhry because finally, the Americans will be the determinants for them to be seen and heard. But if the people are to be seen and heard then the court must call autocracy by its real name. More on blogs.law.nyu.edu.

OSI Industries And Their Recent Acquisition of Flagship Europe

OSI Industries has always been on the cutting edge of what people want when it comes to food choices. This holds true not just in the United States but all over the world. OSI’s recent acquisition of Flagship Europe is going to help them meet the needs of a new generation in the United Kingdom. Needless to say, they are very excited about this recent purchase.

One of the main reasons for their excitement would be because this merger will help them expand their market with a host of new product lines from the Flagship Europe company. These would include food items such as poultry, sous vide products, pies, and flavorings such as mayonnaise, sauce, and dressings. Flagship Europe itself became well-known when they acquired Calder Foods earlier this year. Because of that, they were able to corner the market on food condiments. For their part, Flagship Europe is also excited about the acquisition as well, for a number of reasons.

First of all, it will give Flagship Europe many increased resources. Because of this, they will be able to increase their business capital and expand to further markets within the UK. Secondly, they will have access to new clients along with a new global influence.

Finally, the move helps OSI Europe Foods as well. This is because it increases their influence in the European sector and helps them expand in Great Britain. They will soon become the premier food company not only in the United States but also in the world as well. There is no questioning the fact that the these are good times for OSI Europe and Flagship Europe. Both of these companies now have great opportunities for growth because of their decision to join forces. We can truly expect great things from both companies, simply because of their commitment to excellence.
