The political system of Ukraine is currently undergoing social modernization and radical transformation. One of the most important problems facing the country is the development of an efficient system of local governance. Unfortunately, over 20 years of independence, Ukraine has failed to develop and adopt a model of local government that would be suitable for national conditions. During this time the structure of local governments, like the overall political structure in Ukraine, has been changed several times. Ukraine is struggling through a period where each election brings different election law and procedures. How have different electoral systems impacted Ukrainian local elections? What kind of electoral system on the local level would work in Ukraine better? This paper will treat these questions in greater details.
