Summary

France is not a liberal democracy but it is more similar to Putin’s Russia or Erdoğan’s Turkey, or regimes with lifelong presidents. // Macron was already chosen by the French establishment to be the President.

Disproof

France sees its fourth President since 1999, the beginning of Vladimir Putin's regime. // In France, the President is elected by the people, not by "the establishment".
