Some Aspects of the Ukrainian Constitutional System

Ovidiu-Horia Maican

Three years after the proclamation of the Act of Independence, the Ukrainian state lacked a association constitutional basis, some thing which led to a political paralysis that engulfed Ukraine in 1993. The president attempted to deal with the division of powers at the centre in a stop-gap constitution, which took the form of a Constitutional Agreement of June 1995. On February 21, 2014, Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) voted for a return to the premier-presidential shape of government, which was in firce earlier, in 2006-2010. Under that system, a parliamentary coalition appoints and dismisses the head of the government (cabinet) and its ministers. In the same time, Ukraine’s head of state retains a quantity of powers that separate him from different presidents of nations with a premier-presidential form of government. It is likely that Ukraine’s president has stronger constitutional powers than any other president does in the other with the same form of government.
