Sujit noted that one of the leading challenges facing the Ukrainian presidential system is the concentration of power in the presidency. Too much influence on the executive has weakened other arms of the government thereby resulting in an unstable presidential system.

Sujit Choudhry also noted that another significant challenge in the Ukrainian system is the weak political parties that do not efficiently perform their role of putting the executive on their toes. Sujit noted the challenges facing Ukraine could only be solved by the current constitution makers who should avoid the shortfalls of the current law by all means.   For more of his impressive accomplishments, hop over to
