Sujit Choudhry is often invited to discussions revolving around law and constitutions and has spoken at many international events. He was recently invited to a workshop in Kiev, Ukraine, which was organized by the primary think tanks of the country to discuss the way ahead for Ukraine. As the country has been going through a political and social crisis for the last several years, the think tanks of the country have been worried about finding a practical solution to bring the country’s political machinery on the right track.
Sujit Choudhry said at the event that it is essential for Ukraine to understand that its constitution needs some particular amendments that would help in breaking the age-old semi-presidential system. He believes that the semi-presidential system in Ukraine has caused a lot of trouble in the political sphere of the country and has acted as a roadblock towards country’s progress. Sujit Choudhry also mentioned that many other problems in the country could be resolved by making constitutional reforms. He said that Ukraine also lacks the presence of any significant political parties, which has also contributed to the destabilization of the country. In any country with the strong political party, destabilization of the country doesn’t occur as easily as it happened in Ukraine. The Ukraine’s electoral system was also questioned by Sujit Choudhry and said that filling in some gaps in the electoral process would increase accountability in government and even infuse a sense of trust among the public for the government.
