At the conference, Sujit Choudhry said that the electoral process followed in Ukraine is weak and not transparent and needs to be changed. He stated that once the electoral process is changed in a constitutional manner, many of the underlying issues would be addressed too simultaneously. Sujit Choudhry also mentioned that one of the major problems of the country is the semi-presidential system that is being followed in Ukraine for last many decades. He believes that such a system doesn’t let the concentration of power remain with one leader, and thus, any major decision and policy making process is negatively impacted. It works for the benefit of the nation and is a system that must be changed going forward. For update on his latest work, check on researchgate.net
