Sujit Choudhry joined constitutional experts in July to discuss issues pertaining the Ukraine government. This issues included the presidential system and the challenges facing it. The workshop’s hosts were; Intergovernmental organizations, the center of policy and legal reforms and the international institute for democracy and electorate assistance. During the discussion, Sujit stated that the democracy policy had been unimplemented in Ukraine. Moreover, he credited the failure to the country’s legislature, poor presidential power concentration, and the electoral bodies. In regards to this, Sujit suggested that it would be beneficial to involve leaders who are constitutionally oriented when setting policies regarding constitutional amendments and reforms (prnewswire.com).  His thoughts were hugely supported by other diplomats whose opinions were essential due to their extensive constitutional and law knowledge.
