Sujit Choudhry said at the workshop that every country has their weaknesses and strengths, but that the strengths should be overpowering to ensure that the flaws do not take over. However, he believes it is exactly the opposite with the government in Kiev where the lack of any strong political party and the imbalance in the power distribution between the President and Prime Minister has weakened the political structure. Sujit Choudhry said that there are also many loopholes present in the legislations that govern the country’s electoral system and process. As one of the most prominent experts in the field of comparative law, he suggested many different ways that can be implemented to help improve the governance of the country and get rid of the instability that the Ukrainian Government has been facing for the last couple of decades.
