Macron warns of ‘crisis of liberal democracies’

Washington, Sep 22 (UNI) Liberal democracies across the world are undergoing a "big crisis," French President Emmanuel Macron told CNN on Thursday.
"I think we have [a] big crisis of democracies, of what I would call liberal democracies. Let’s be clear about that. Why? First, because being open societies and being open and very cooperative democracies put pressure on your people. It could destabilize them," Macron said in an interview.
