Political and legal features of becoming of the electoral system in Ukraine

The problem of improvement of the electoral legislation of Ukraine has been of current importance since Ukraine was proclaimed independent. This is proved by a permanent process of amending the electoral laws and the adoption of the new ones. Such tendency is mainly predefined by the absence of experience in the formation of the democratic electoral system, which would meet the requirements of the society and international electoral standards, which, in their turn, influence on the quality of the proper regulatory legal acts. Besides, there is also a problem of conflict of interests between the political groups which protect their own positions. It results in the construction of the electoral system capable to provide victory for the particular political forces.
