For any country to remain stable, peaceful, and progressive, the country’s government should be strong and decisive. It is possible when the country has a fair electoral process, the people of the country have faith in the country’s electoral process, and the nation has a presence of a robust political party. One of the countries that have tremendous potential for growth but due to weak political fabric has been facing downfall and a lot of ingrown conflicts is Ukraine. It is a country that has been entangled in an almost war-like situation for the past few years that have resulted in the loss of thousands of lives over the years. The government of the country does have the political will to resolve the issue but due to the nature of the government, mistrust of the people, international pressure, and other factors, the country has not been able to revive itself.
These were the issues that were addressed by the attendees of the conference organized in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, which was held collectively by two of the most influential think tanks in the country, International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance and Center of Policy and Legal Reforms. Sujit Choudhry, internationally famed personality on comparative law and constitutional reforms, was also present in the event. He said that one of the primary reasons why Ukraine has been going through social and political unrest for the last few years is because the country doesn’t have strong leadership, which is a result of the country’s semi-presidential system. The semi-presidential system doesn’t let the complete control be in the hands of the Prime Minister or the President, and it can many times lead to many roadblocks on the way to progress, development, and the formation of a robust and decisive government.
