Example text

Therefore, it is unlikely to be revealing to apply a definition framed with the study of Western parliaments in mind. As Wise and Brown (1996a: 217) contend, studying emerging parliaments as potential equals with institutionalized legislatures in more industrialized nations ignores the fundamental role of culture, context and history in an institution’s development. Wise and Brown thus approach the subject by assessing the extent to which a ‘positive foundation’ has been laid for future development, though this approach implicitly imposes their normative conception of how the Ukrainian parliament should develop.

However, the application of the concept of institutionalization may be seen as problematic when applied to the Verkhovna Rada in as far as this parliament is less than 15 years old and political scientists freely admit that institutionalization takes ‘decades, even generations’ (Polsby cited in Wise and Brown 1996a: 217). ´ gh (1995: 206) In many areas, basic rules and procedures were lacking, which A calls the ‘institutional deficit’, accompanied by a ‘cultural deficit’, the lack of professionalism, experience and parliamentary norms needed to face the challenges of state-building and democratization.

The perpetuation of this wholly unsatisfactory constitutional arrangement made governance at best disorganized, at worst chaotic. Neither President Kravchuk nor the various groupings in parliament were strong or coherent enough to push through a definitive resolution. Without a defined role in the constitution, with deputies’ interests polarized ideologically and cutting across institutions, parliament remained directionless and reactive. At the same time, the presidential style of Kravchuk made impasse between the branches more probable than decisive resolution.
