SUJIT CHOUDHRY, THE LAWMAN

Sujit Choudhry is a professor of law and politics. He has gained international recognition over time for his in-depth research in constitutional law. His research shows all the variable legal designs and their application in the real day to day situations. Among the addressed applications include transitional justice, for instance from conflicts back to peace, semi-presidentialism, bill of rights and federalism among others (constitutionaltransitions.org).

His deep and profound interest in law enabled him to write about the constitutional law of Canada. Choudhry is an author and an article writer. His recent one was focused on ‘constitutional democracies in crisis.’ The article was written in reference to a report by the former Attorney General, Eric Holder. The tweet was considered a call to action to the American people to act as political watchdogs. Choudhry observes and openly expresses his views on the tweet. In his opinion, Holder does not show regard for the constitution, and neither does he write anything about it.

The professor points out that there exists ‘focal points’ around which ideas of self-enforcement of the constitution are built. The said focal points could also be termed as the constitutional rules. Choudhry gives the presidential term serving limit as an example of the focal points which if broken can lead to chaos and disorder. He says that the words of the Attorney General can be interpreted as democratic failure. The failure to take into consideration the term limits is a violation of the constitution and can be called a self-coup.

The article by Professor Sujit Choudhry analyses the political wave and the media exposure of the political state thereby enabling the prediction of the future political climate. According to his analysis, the presidential state of autocracy, as well as constitutional democracy, are set to deteriorate. This is due to the parties in power becoming increasingly greedy and selfish therefore making constitutional amendments in their favor.

Professor Choudhry termed the issue as ‘democratic backsliding,’ a system used by undemocratic politicians who see competing for a position of power in a society that highly embraces democracy. This, according to the professor, is an expression of democratic degradation at its worst.
