France is a country in Europe, bordering Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Monaco, Italy, Andorra and Spain. Moreover, they have some territories ruled by France in different parts of the world. The main official language is French. 51% are Christians, 39% are Atheists and 5% are Muslims. The population of this country is approx 6,78,74,000 with 6,43,801 square kilometers area.

Everyone has the right to free expression. Everyone has equal rights. And there are a lot of traditional clauses in the French constitution. But Article 5 of the French Constitution is the best article of the French Constitution. The state has the right to prohibit only what is harmful to society by law. That means, everyone's individual liberty is unlimited, as long as it does not cause harm to others. Any kind of music you are entitled to listen; that is your freedom. However, you cannot disturb others by playing music on loud speakers, because others have the right not to listen to it.

These are positive aspects. Now let's discuss the negative aspects.

The President has the right to dissolve the Parliament before the end of its term. It is dangerous. Voters elect representatives by giving them the opportunity to represent for a specific period of time. Of course, the Parliament should be dissolved after the expiry of the term. Parliament has the option of proxy voting in special cases. It is also non-democratic.
