A game-theoretic model for the description of political parties’ competition in Ukraine is constructed. The system of assumptions, which is formed the basis of the model, is obtained. The electoral situations in Ukraine, as examples, are described by utilizing the proposed model. A set of Propositions, that describes the situation of the competition of political parties in Ukraine, is formed. It is shown that this situation corresponds to the creation of the institutional trap in the field of public choice. The mechanisms, and based on them, technologies to overcome this institutional trap are proposed.
