Prances curious form of government proportional representation with multiple parties is a product of the fear of Napoleon ism a fear which has Bern aggravated by the emergence of dictators subsequent to world War i Mussolini Hitler Stalin Franco to mention Only the important ones. Ii is for this reason that de Gaulle has been feared.
