Of course you didn't vote for a "President of the EU", because there's no such thing.

There's a "President of the European Council" (currently Charles Michel, former Belgian PM), who is elected by the democratically elected governments of the member states of the EU. So you did get an indirect vote.

There's also a "President of the European Commission" (Ursula von der Leyen, Germany), She was elected by the European Parliament, which you had a vote in.

And last but not least, theres a "President of the European Parliament" (David Sassoli, Italy), who is also elected by the European Parliament. Again, you got a vote by representation.

But honestly, I don't know why I even bother since you can't even get the names of the offices right.
