On July 10, 2017, a summit involving constitutional experts from 25 nations was held in Kiev, the location chosen for such event because of its historical importance. They were joined by the Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, Sujit Choudhry, a very influential man in the subject. These groups of top experts were convened to discuss a number of issues such as security, democratization, constitutional reforms and transitions, and other hurdles that many countries have to face.
Among their main agenda are the Ukraine government’s semi-presidential system and the challenges it is facing regarding the constitution and possible reforms. For his part, Sujit Choudhry said that it was a privilege and honor to be able to brainstorm executive powers among fellow experts in law and constitution. He added that in Ukraine, the democratization had not achieved stability yet. And the reasons for these are the weak political parties, the concentration of power to the president, and the electoral system’s legislature, just to mention some.
Sujit Choudhry also mentioned that this gathering of constitutional experts and scholars is critical in order to collect knowledge and ideas about needed constitutional reforms. Sujit Choudhry and the group of experts based their discussion on articles and proven case studies in order to evidently organize the information that they need. With that, their presence improved the discussion and his knowledge that Sujit acquired when he was a participant of the University of California helped him greatly.
