by the the way, is not the exeption from the general rule. The main idea of this variant lies in the following: the principle of the demarcation (division) is combined with a principle of interaction. And its principle is fixed in the British system of power not as something abstract, but institutionally. I mean a special center, a linking section, which brings together the legislating and executing powers, and at the same time is the center of making important political decisions. Surely, it is the Cabinet and its leader which are at the head of the whole executive system of the state. The main 4 principles of division of powers are: 1)    2)    3)    4)    So, as we see, the legislators provide the execution of the

laws and resolutions of the Parliament by controlling the State machinery, and in its turn, the state machinery participates in the legislative process, providing its preparatory stage (by doing a spade-work). British Parliament. The Comparison Of Two Political Systems: Ukrainian And British Ones. 1. The first distinction may seem to be the form of rule: Ukraine is a respublic. And Britain, as you probably know, is considered to be a parliamentary monarchy. The Queen is the personification of the U.K. By law, she is the head of the executive branch, an integral part of the legislature, the head of the judiciary, the commander-in-chief of all armed forces of the Crown and the temporal head of the established Church of England. But in practice, as a result of a long evolutionary

process, these powers have changed. Today, the queen acts only on the advice of her Ministers which she cannot constitutionally ignore. In fact she reigns but she doesn’t rule. However, the monarchy has a good deal more power than is commonly supposed. There remain certain discretionary powers in the hands of the monarch, known as the Royal Prerogative. 2. The Ukrainian and the British Parliaments have at least four similar functions: a)    b)    c)     d)    The difference lies in the electoral systems and the rules for recalling the government. But there is also one more remarkable peculiarity of the Ukrainian Parliament: the political history of Ukraine does not know any potent legislative bodies (we can hardly

take into account the experience of the Soviet Congress ). 3. Both Ukraine and Britain are countries with the representative democracy (which means that the people delegate power to the bodies, which act on their behalf). The difference is, that Britain has a parliamentary form of government, and Ukraine, in its turn, has a so-called “semi-presidential” form. The main distinctions of this forms are shown in the table, given below.   The British parliamentary form The Ukrainian “semi-pesidential” form 1. The election solves two questions: On one hand, the forming of the Parliament. And on the other hand, the creation of the Government and different coalitions. 1. The election solves just one question: Either the problem of forming the Parliament or the creation of the

Government.   2. The Government is formed only by the Parliament. 2. The Government is formed by both the President and the Parliament.   3. The executive Power is separated. 3. The executive Power is not separated.   4. Unlike Britain, Ukraine has different bodies of legislative and executive power, and one body doesn’t interfere with the activity of the other. 5. The negative features of the British system may seem to be too much power in the hands of Prime Minister and rather uncontrolled local government. Summary Having compared two political systems, I have come to the conclusion that the form and the level of development of the systems are influenced greatly by the history of the State. The second factor is that of evaluationary progress, which usually

improves the existing order and makes it more democratic. Having analysed two state systems, I have noticed the tendency towards the reinforcement of the executive power and a lessening of the legislative power. But still, parliament remains an integral institution in a democratic society. I have studied the British political experience concerning the division of powers and I can say that with all its originality, the British System is not something unique or exceptional. This system should be taken as the foundation stone of the cooperation of two powers in countries with a representative democracy. The reason for the lasting discussion of this problem in the Ukrainian Parliament lies not only in involving the interests of powerful persons. Actually, it is the result of the
