4:16 pm
breakerss to be reported is tipped to loose. 64% of people voted no to the proposal. they say it circumvented the rules of democracy. fish numbers have not been released by it appears iran's elections have been an overwhelming vote of confidence for the president. the moderates have done well as well in the big invest voting district. >> reporter:-- biggest voting district >> reporter: friday's election was a test of support for iran's path out of isolation and economic decay. as such, the policies of the president including the nuclear deal with world powers that led to the lifting of sanctions, have passed that test. his moderate and reformist allies have made the biggest gains in the key institutions on
4:17 pm
in over a decade. analysts are quick to point out that neither immediate nor lasting change is inevitable. >> if the economy doesn't pick up, then in four years from now you will see the losers coming back to power. the president, since he has been able to achieve an agreement with, he has an advantage, but he has two major problems and that is the fall of the price of oil as well as the global economy that is not doing well. so it remains to be seen how this is going to play out in the next year and a half. >> reporter: the vibrant appearance of the bizarre. 60% of the population is under 30 and one in four of those is without a job. the economy is where most people want to see change the most. that means reforming the laws on trade and foreign investment.
4:18 pm
the sort of things that tloong with international reengage-- long with reengagement could be severtives are sceptic of. for so many voters loosening the conservative grip on power matters. >> it is going to open the doors to the europe and other countries to new relationships, new communication with them, and we need to change and weep have to change the parliament to protect our government >> reporter: conservatives will remain powerful in both the new parliament and assembly of experts. significantly less powerful than before joining me now live from washington dc is the acting
4:19 pm
director of the future of iron initiative, atlantic council and the washington correspondent. very good to have up on the program. a good result for rouhani's allies >> yes. i see once again they are mading lemonade out of lemons. most of the candidates were disqualified, they were not allowed to participate. so the surviving leader of the reformers put together a list of the best that were available, the most moderate forces that had passed this vetting procedure by a body called the guardian council. this is the group that took automatic 30 seats in tehran and has done well in the assembly of experts. it is pretty remarkable do you think that this will translate into different foreign policies, perhaps? >> i'm not sure it's going to have a direct impact, although it will strengthen the rouhani
4:20 pm
government, which means it strengthens his prime minister who has been engaged in talks with the international community on syria, for example. while it doesn't pretend any major shift in policy, it does strengthen the hand of the government overall do you think the nuclear deal, perhaps, played into the hands of the current change that we see happening? >> very much so. that was his main campaign promise, that he was going to resolve the dispute over iran's nuclear program and that he was going to have sanctions lifted. although he has not delivered on everything else that he promised, he did come through here and that is why we saw this rather laurnlg turn out, particularly among middle-class and upper class in support of the government do you think we also have to be careful, my colleague mentioned that not to underestimate the conservative elements within parliaments.
4:21 pm
they still remain a powerful group. >> i'm not so concerned about their role in parliament. i am concerned about the power they have over the judiciary, which they still control, and also the various security organs of the state which have carried out quite a crackdown on iranian civil society, arrested dual nationals, particularly american iranians, iranian americans. these powers remain. the supreme leader of the country is very suspicious of the west and of the u.s. in particular. so, no, this is not going to change the islamic republic over night, but it's a good step and i think it gives people hope and encouragement that there can be gradual change over time and in the longer term, perhaps, also one of the tasks of the assembly of experts, of course, will be to choose the next supreme leader. >> well, it's not clear whether they will choose or merely
4:22 pm
approve the next leader. it's also not clear that there will be one individual who will succeed the current supreme leader. it could be a council which has been suggested by the man who is winning the most votes, the former president. so there is much that is still up in the air, but i think it's very clear where the sentiment of the iranian people lies and that is with more moderate, pragmatic reformist elements. it's good for them and for us thank you for that. a senior vatican official is being forced to testify at a royal commission investigating child sexual abuse in australia. he is being pressed to reveal about the abuses when he was head of the australian's roman catholic church. he is appearing by video link

[ ♪ ] he said he what too ill to attend there. it covers travel expenses to roam for 15 survivors. >> we're not here to intimidate him but he has to look at our
4:24 pm
faith as the ones who have been damaged by the clergy. >> i would love to see him stand up and say, we got this wrong. we didn't handle this well but we can help the victims now. >> reporter: he was abused by his uncle a priest convicted of 80 counts of child abuse. he was the first speaker to speak out in 1993. he said the cardinal knew both him and his abuser. >> he was a bishop then. i had known him since i was a child. he was the bishop of where i was living. i called him in the hope that he could help me in some way. he said to me, what will it take to get you eye the question. >> reporter: he will give evidence once a day at least until wednesday. he is not facing criminal charges, but should the abuse commission rule that he ignored

she is hoping after thp campaign washington finally realises it hollywood is preparing for its biggest night of the year with the 88th academy awards. it's sundays afternoon in l.a. chris rock is presenting, but, of course, this year's ceremony eep has been over shadowed by controversy over race issues since spike lee and will smith saying they won't be attending. let's get more on what we can expect. our correspondent is there before getting underway. who is going to be the big winner. i'm looking for your prediction. >> reporter: i will give you my best protection the revenant is the one to watching-- prediction. it is the revenant that did well at baftas that took best actor,
4:40 pm
best director and film. it is up for 12 nominations here. it is followed by mad max, but including best picture, best director and best film. dicaprio doesn't say that much in the movie, but what he does say and his performance has been deemed very likely to get him a best actor award here. he won at the baftas and the feeling is it is his year that year there's plenty of talk about who is going to be on the red carpet but also who isn't this year. >> reporter: you've mentioned chris rock and the whole row over racism. there is something some controversy here, but this year and last year, because one was
4:41 pm
snubbed, the hashtag got a resurgence. there was talk about the fact that you have five best actor nominees, automatic white, and ago actress nominees all white. i spoke to the founder of the so white hashtag. it's about gender diversity. it is a town that deals on stories, but there are some uncomfortable truth when you look at women represented in film. there was a study saying that out of the whole year of films in 2014 only 28% of them were characterers. 20% of those characters were women and only 21% were women. they have female leads or they have female colleagues. only 2% of directors here were women. so the whole diversity issue is one being focused on. the academy has announced some changes that will increase
4:42 pm
diversity by 2020. what will be very interesting to see, it's not necessarily will happen tonight, but next year, what nominations are going to look like next year and that these steps may not prove fruitful for a few years. at the moment, of course, this is hollywood's biggest notice. it should be the happen happiest night. cibbing rock will be on stage and it is very, very unlikely that he will let this go without saying anything. he is bound to bring this up and make his comments. over the next few hours, it will be on who is walking on this red carpet they're not screaming for you some that out fit? thanks for that the film critic joins me. we're not on the red party, but
4:43 pm
we can still party. what are your predictions >> it looks like the night that the revenant is going to triumph. it is brilliantly directed and it is expected to win his second director oscar. it is a remarkable film pot lights could run it close, but spotlight, though, flawless hasn't got the sin mattic-- cinematic quality. it looks like dicaprio's night, five acting nominations and now leicester square in london they have named a place after him. we like the kidnapped mother in a room is good. stallone for creed, a choice
4:44 pm
because he is reprizing his role as ram bo. 30-odd years since his last nomination. kate winslett for acting supporting role we get if leo wins and dicoprio wins works just need a bow of the ship. >> yes. we all remember that. apart from the celebration of some remarkable work and the fact that there's no question that several films, there is this deeply serious aspect where it is perceived that the academy voters are badly out of touch. the oscars so white tash tag is
4:45 pm
tweeting and there is a question of diversity will over shadow how badly out of touch is it. we heard figures about phil talking about the number of female roles and directors. the figures certainly stack up and they're predominantly white and maem >> there are no fish figures, the academy voters r94% white, 77% male and the average age is 62. so films straight out the comp.ton may not have appealed to them. why in heavens name having last year's snubbed salma in the best director and actor, did they not clue ebler for best supporting actor. that will remain a mystery. this is a problem in the
4:46 pm
industry, so as a whole hollywood has a lot to think about i don't know, maybe change will come but slowly. richard, thank you very much for joining us. i hope you enjoy watching as things unfold providing medical services to foreign countries is a major source of cuba's national income. the island is eyeing its neighbor to the north to extend its health tourism industry. >> reporter: riding a horse is strengthening the muscles in his back. he has cerebral palsy and heap is getting treatment here. two strokes brought him here all the way from ghana. in three months he has made great strides regaining his mobility. he has paid $10,000 for day in and day out physical speech and occupational therapy.

4:48 pm
hospital. >> we just wanted to know about it and see what was being done in cuba for myself and to understand it rather than making assumptions about it. >> reporter: whether there's an untapped american market remains to be seen. in the meantime, people such as migal and franklin may be the best advertisement for cuba's medical tourism industry. the hope is both will soon walk out of here on their own still to come on the al jazeera news hour, how india's graffiti's artist are brightening the community by turning shipping containers into works of art. more records tumble in the nba.
