Sujit Choudhry is the Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, and on July 10th he was honored to gather with other constitutional experts to talk about Ukraine’s semi-presidential system. He felt that democracy in the Ukraine needs to be stabilized and that issues stem from the weak political parties, legislature electoral system, and the presidents power. Well-known people including Vladimir Vasilenko, Thomas Sidelius, and Sumit Bisarya, joined him, and together they worked with Viktor Musiaka, Sergyi Holovatyi, and Ihor Koliushko, who are important figures in Ukrainian government, to discuss solutions.
