2:00 am
in the aftermath of civil war peace and reconciliation i remember seeing in the absence of justice. people in power honest chilling testimonies of atrocities suggesting the thora teams have failed to conduct full and proper investigations that could help heal resentment inflicted by conflict. partial justice at this time on al jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm rob matheson and this is the news our live from doha coming out of the next sixty minutes
2:01 am
a fourth time for german chancellor angela merkel but after sunday's election she faces of a very different parliament. kurds refused to back down from monday's independence referendum despite opposition from all their neighbors. the kurds aren't the only people planning a controversial vote to a report from catalonia where defiance of spain's government is growing. this is nothing to do with race anything else assisted with respect for our country and respect. and how remarkable it all really suddenly pitted donald trump against america's most popular sports. german chancellor angela merkel has won a fourth term in office her victory was widely expected but she'll face of a very different political. landscape when the new bundestag convenes. the party
2:02 am
not only won the seats for the first time but made a surprisingly strong showing exit polls project center right christian democratic union party has won just over thirty three percent of the vote giving them two hundred and twenty seats their main rival and current coalition partner the center left social democrats led by martin short's got around twenty one percent of the vote or one hundred thirty seven seats but the biggest change to germany's political scene is this the far right and anti islam alternative for germany or the party getting thirteen point two percent of the vote that translates into eighty seven seats the three other main parties one between nine and ten percent of the vote but could find themselves in power i was part of a coalition dominic cain reports from berlin. to six weeks of campaigning in germany the coaches have spoken they have sent to members of parliament they want
2:03 am
to represent them in the next four years here is the message they have sent is a confusing one the suggestion is clearly that angle americal will lead the next government but who will she govern. a moment of celebration for the christian democrats confirmed in first place but for some it was a hollow victory they lost almost one hundred seats in this election so low and good america will very probably remain as chancellor this is a chaste moment when that's really. of course we are facing a huge test the a.f.d. party entering parliament we will carry out the found analysis because we want to win back the voters. by solving problems and listening to them and sometimes. but above all three good politics. and there are many of those voters four years ago the far right alternative for german. party failed to win any seats in its
2:04 am
first federal election campaign this time with an anti refugee anti islam platform it nearly tripled its vote and will be the third largest party in parliament. yeah mind it out of time because we've been given an electoral mandate and we will accept this electoral mandate with humility because millions of voters have given us their trust to carry out constructive opposition work in the german parliament and we will deliver ladies and gentlemen we will deliver. for the social democrats this was a disastrous connection not in shorts led them to their worst result since world war two he and his party will now form the main opposition in parliament which means angle americal must now trying to form what's called the jamaica coalition after the colors of its national flag taking in the greens and the free democrats a combination that has never been tried at a federal level she it looked like and lament with the comforts of
2:05 am
a winner but she really lost significantly and she needs the party which lost most in this election in comparison to the last election so hopefully the c.d.u. world learned its lesson too that they have to change something because otherwise they will be defeated to the next elections one final question is from they still actually want has happened to the angular metal that won forty percent of the votes just four years ago she's lost many votes many since the question some people are asking now is is already dented or damaged in some way as a consequence of all they see election questions will follow about what sort of coalition she can lead where she can take germany forwards in the next four years. there are key government is ramping up its efforts to stop a controversial referendum on kurdish independence on monday it's asked the autonomous kurdish region to hunt over control of its international border posts and airport. it's also calling on foreign countries to stop trading oil with the
2:06 am
kurdish region and to deal with the baghdad government instead by minister body once the vote well have dire consequences. i want to speak clearly with our dear kurdish people most of the problems in your region are local and not coming from baghdad and the call of secession will only make the crisis of economic and financial difficulties get bigger resulting from the corruption and bad management i want to direct my verse of the kurdish people and ask those responsible where has the money from oil revenues gone. but the president of iraq's kurdish regional government massud bizarrely insists the vote will go ahead he says officials in baghdad have failed to live up to the promises they made to the kurds . and they have been continuing in threatening and humiliating no people the state the we agreed on should have been a state based on citizenship federalism pluralism multiculturalism and democracy but unfortunately the state we have right now in iraq is
2:07 am
a theocratic sectarian state. has more from iraq's kurdistan region erbil. this was the final time we hear from kurdish president. takes place on monday and he had some very harsh words for the government in baghdad he said the didn't you participated in building and went willingly to baghdad for back in two thousand and three turned out to be practical and think tarion country he said because they they could they play lead a key role in ratify the constitution back in two thousand and five but they did not get what they expected in return then he went on speaking about the current problems with the central government in baghdad and he said that after the vote they will still be a time for negotiation independence won't come on the next day and maybe it will take a year or two or even more depends on how good these talks would go but within minutes
2:08 am
the prime minister either allowed by the gave us or statement and he also didn't mince his words he said that baghdad wind never accept the disintegration of iraq and that this referendum will lead actively to a creation of a racist and sick tarion state and went on putting a lot of the blame on the kurds he said that yes they did not receive their share of the federal revenue but about a quarter of iraq's oil production at the moment is being sold unilaterally by. and he then he went on saying that. baghdad is going to take further steps he did not elaborate what those steps could be but he did warn that iraq was entering a dangerous zone and nobody knows what the outcome will be this. fall if this is what people here are getting ready to head to the polling stations monday morning about twelve thousand of those around the kurdish region and it is
2:09 am
and. this place people will be able to cast their ballots there is certainly an atmosphere here say that this is their time to express their opinion and to take their future into their own hands. about is director of the center for the study of the middle east indiana university he's also former iraqi ambassador to the u.n. and he is joining us now live on skype from bloomington thank you very much indeed for your time as we just heard holder mention there hide that all about he did make the point that they have been selling the oil on their own behalf i understand simply he says pocketing the money that's given rise to some economic. problems between baghdad and the codes but is it not fair to say that the kurds do have a point in their political aspirations have not been recognized in the in the
2:10 am
government in baghdad and that is a problem in getting money from iraq as well. i think it let me invest economic issue first the central dispute between the k r g and baghdad is on whether or not the kurds are entitled to seventeen percent which is the legal standard set to seventeen percent of the. revenue of iraqi oil before or after expenses are paid and a beard maintains that get seventeen percent off the top that maintains it has to pay expenses first and so the kurds get seventy percent of what's left over that's the central argument hardly worth it seems to me. sort of ratcheting up to the level that we're seeing here as for the politics the kurds in fact are independent in all but name they have de facto independence within an
2:11 am
internationally recognized border which they have benefited from because some long as they were in this all stance of all federation in fact a confrontation with iraq that you know and turkey have respected the international order now they're throwing the entire region potentially into turmoil. really fall no very obvious reasons so. it is not clear to me that other than an aspiration towards independence which of course is that right to have that aspiration it is not clear to me that the politics have so. be reduced to such a state as to justify this move tomorrow how would you react to the suggestion that that this is a non-binding referendum and as you said yourself the aspirations for a state to do if you like are a long way down the road and he has made that point himself that as a result of all of that the reactions of iraq and iran and turkey towards this
2:12 am
referendum an overreaction. i have quite a bit of sympathy for that response but i would also say that an experienced political figures such as president but as on if the coach stan region should have anticipated that that would be the response. the for the turks and for the iranians i think that's constant particularly for the turks this is an existential threat the largest population of kurds in the world are in turkey how turkey would deal openly with an independent iraq equal to stand but deny their own kurds independence is a you know a problem requiring solomonic wisdom which is not evident on the scene anywhere in the middle east they say so it may be an overreaction but it is one who should have anticipated nevertheless the given the reaction that we have seen particularly from both iran and turkey both of those countries already have significant investments
2:13 am
and business deals with kurdistan already how does that the situation the reaction that we're seeing from those two countries jibe with the fact that they are actually quite in twined with kurdistan at the moment. yes i think here we have a situation where the current this i think is one of the reasons they've overplayed their hands because there has been particularly in turkey i mean everything from fruit to air conditioners is an order from turkey. codes it seems to me sort of got the notion that they have turkey on a short leash they forgot the size of the turkish economy and the relatively small size of the kurdistan colony so while it's true that these countries are invested the relative size of the trade between the two countries for a country like turkey for a country like iran is quite small indeed i should also point out that turkey and iran aside the international community including the united states the united
2:14 am
nations and the security council of pointed out that there's a lack of legitimacy of this referendum tomorrow the negotiations should have come with that first and then the referendum not the other way around in my view at the same time i hope that deescalate and doesn't escalate the rhetoric where it's always good to get your point of view on matters like this feisal is that about a director of the center for the study of the middle east at indiana university thank you so much it's a pleasure thank you now it's a week to go until residents of catalonia seek to hold a band vote on whether to separate from spain catalans i defiantly posting yes signs across barcelona and other cities across the catalan region and the local police are letting them john hendren reports from barcelona. catalans are building a growing movement in perhaps a nation the government of spain has branded these pro independence signs
2:15 am
a crime making these children women. as a bit of a pain in the bucket on the advent of anybody differen. we want. our freedom yes. spanish police have banned the october first referendum on independence and confiscated the regional governments ten million ballots so catalans printed these in spanish and in their own language we don't have spain we actually love their culture and all but i know we are free people and we are in the balance catalans handed them out and posted pro independence signs as the region's most those police who refused to take their direction from spain look on only. want to be free their cars are strewn with flowers by thankful locals some draped in what they hope to become their national standard because spain his outlawed the referendum there's been no real campaign here this spanish government
2:16 am
office is as close as you get to a no campaign headquarters and cattle on officials who have urged people to vote yes have found themselves in jail and face charges as serious as sedition which carries a fifteen year prison term all for urging voters to cast a homemade ballot we have to vote but it was not bus about you thought of the people about the shows so i don't know. why though god i couldn't vote yes or no. at the ports it's the spanish flag it's unfurled by proud nationalists don't do that we can't allow them to say that catalonia is not spain as a castle and all my life i feel very spanish and i will always on my homeland which is spain here more than three thousand spanish national police and civil defense forces are housed in crucial. in order to stop the referendum whether catalans vote to build a new nation or whether the movement they've built falls apart will be decided on
2:17 am
october first john hendren al jazeera barcelona. but the more ahead on the news including a slow and painful recovery for the people of puerto rico after a storm that left the whole island powerless plus thousands great. every tons from his first trip abroad since the g.c.c. crisis. in sports team europe and the rest of the world out on the final day of the inaugural sun is going to be here to tell you who took the spoils. in the u.s. more than one hundred national football league players or nelson joining the national anthem before sunday's games three teams did not come out onto the field for the anthem i told they were protesting racial injustice and president donald trump's call for an end to such demonstrations by athletes that has more from
2:18 am
washington d.c. . some knelt on one knee others raised their fists and locked arms as hundreds of american football players in the united states in london pushed back against president trump's criticism of their protests during the u.s. national anthem it was a sign of solidarity with other athletes criticized by donald trump since friday for using the anthems to protest racial inequality and aggressive policing in the united states would you love to see one of these n.f.l. owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a off the field right out the sky. fired on sunday trunk continued his criticism on twitter suggesting fans boycott the national football league and owners fire players who he believes disrespect the country by protesting during the anthem as the n.f.l. players association was quick to put out
2:19 am
a response supporting the athletes right to express themselves and demonstrate on the field products walk and we so the process of freedom trumps tirade has been met with pushback not just from athletes but also from team owners who have contributed to trump's political campaign or visited the white house in a statement the new england patriots c.e.o. robert kraft said he's deeply disappointed by the president's comments as the debate spiraled members of trump's administration defended the president's comments i think what the president is saying is that the owner should have a role that player should have to stand in respect for the national anthem this isn't about democrats it's not about republicans it's not about race it's not about free speech they can do free speech on their own time the right to protest is protected under the constitution of the united states in two thousand and sixteen quarterback collin capper nick started using his platform to highlight injustice experienced by minorities in american society. the movement has spread to. other
2:20 am
u.s. sports leagues saturday catcher bruce maxwell became the first major league baseball player to kneel during the american anthem. and other famous athletes like basketball star le bron james have also been speaking out because this guy that we've. put in charge has taught us try to divide us once again the nature of the protests arm precedented and will continue save the athletes until the u.s. overcomes the racial divisions they say persist kimberly hell kid al jazeera washington well a short time ago president trump defended his criticism of the players on their protests he says his objection has nothing to do with race. we have a great country we have great people representing our country in fact we are told. they can be good but we are back and getting. back to american flag or the and
2:21 am
that's not big. that's nothing to do with race i've never said anything about right this is nothing to do with race anything else has to do with respect for our country and respect from. a let's bring in iran candy he's the founding director of the anti-racist research and policy center at american university's hayes in washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for your time so the president says this is not about race is it. i think if if if he seen the way he responds to these players are calling these players s.o.b.'s but then we compare the way he responded to those people defending confederate monuments to classify those people as quote fine people and so for me and for other people watching this hypocrisy it appears to be exactly about race for our
2:22 am
international audience many might not understand the importance of the significance of the playing of the national anthem and standing for the u.s. national anthem at sporting events why is this so significant i don't know necessarily that it is significant as much as people have made people taking and me in using the national anthem to demonstrate against racism that their act is significant and so you know in american sports it's a tradition of course to play the national anthem and what common capron it did is i'm going to use this platform this venue to sort of demonstrate against the old national anthem of racism in this country so if i understand it correctly we're talking about two separate things now this is no longer a debate about the way that people protest this is actually moving towards
2:23 am
a debate about people's right to protest. i think so and i think that's what is i think people are scratching their head because either americans have the right to protest or americans don't either we all have the right to protest either these players have the right to protest against racism just like people have the right to protest for confederate monuments or none of us do you can't you know the president can't pick and choose who he's going to defend who is going to support what protester brad what people should get fired either we all have this right or we don't. if i understand it correctly it's not normal for the performance of the national anthem to be shown on national sporting events unless it's the world series for example of the super bowl but it looks to me as though some of the major channels say that they are going to be showing this in upcoming games presumably to
2:24 am
see what the reaction of the players is going to be when it's played how do you think the fans of these teams are going to be reacting when they see the players take this kind of action to make this kind of stand when i think the fans will be split i think those fans who think that there is not a racism problem in the united states and who think that these players are disrespecting the flag itself and that's all really there there's they're taking a knee is about i think they're going to be upset and they're going to continue to be upset but i think those americans who see racism as a problem who say racial inequality as a problem and who champion these players taking a knee against this i think these people are going to support these players how strong is the argument do you think that donald trump to put forward one type of message in alabama at the political rally and ended up getting
2:25 am
a completely different one which he had not intended and it is massively backfired . well i think that's what's essentially happening i think he of course decided that he was going to attack these players who are who are who are standing up and stand or taking in needy against against racism and it's sort of spiraled out of control in which his comments really inflamed even more protests that happened across the national football league today and i think he will continue to inflame these players if he denies them their civil right to protest candy is finally director of the anti-racist research and policy center at american university we appreciate your time thank you very much donald trump's travel ban on six muslim majority countries on sunday but the u.s. president is expected to announce new restrictions that have been protests and legal challenges since the ban began ninety days ago it bars citizens of iran libya

the place blocking off roads telegraph poles have been snapped like toothpicks but there are some very basic needs here that are going to make this a long term recovery firstly let's deal with fuel if gas stations are open there are a very long lines and people are now being rationed but for businesses and places like hospitals that are running off generators time is now running out particularly for important places like hospitals if they can't get fuel they are in deep trouble the other big problem here is things like fresh water that's also being rationed which is an incredibly difficult situation but power may be the biggest issue of all if you look at the power cables here you can see why this island and i mean the whole island has no power at all officials say it may come on sometime next year but in neighborhoods like this families are coming together and doing what they can they're finding food and water wherever they can buying it but they're also coping with there being no power and no telecommunications and for many this is an
2:28 am
incredibly difficult long term situation every day it serves you becoming like more of a reality you know because it's like surreal like i say you know and you know we think that this is going to be back to normal and which is hope that that's going to happen and here is yet another problem the entire island is facing whole communities a submerged below flood waters and all of this is been here for days it's starting to smell because sewage is leaking in oil is leaking in and it's simply heartbreaking for people in the street behind me but what we can. say for certain after spending a week in puerto rico is this is going to be a long and painful recovery and for many people simply heartbreaking and gallacher al-jazeera san juan puerto rico. still ahead and al jazeera. they don't just have five or six of these a strange. none of the looking down it was getting dusk we examine the six state of

2:39 am
and the liberal d p this grouping ruled five times in the eighty's and ninety's now if there isn't strong enough the greens could be added making the so-called jamaica coalition that's called that because it's like the jamaican flag slightly more far fetched is this one the senegal coalition the greens the yellow of the f.t.p. and the red of the s.p.d. it's also called the traffic light coalition and the other option is the afghanistan coalition the s.p.d. the c.d.u. and the greens although that is unlikely at this stage charles litchfield is a european affairs analyst at the think tank you rate your group he's joining us live on skype from london a lot of acronyms a lot of different colors do we have any indication even at this early stage for the german government is actually going to look like. yes i see you had a lot of fun with hannity of colors but unfortunately it seems that there aren't
2:40 am
that many than this is merkel can use and i think the most likely outcome is in fact the jamaica coalition so that of course involves the lack of mrs merkel c.d.u. c.s.u. and also the liberals but the greens too because you mentioned the black yellow coalition which would be the party preference but they don't have the numbers and so i think the most likely outcome will be that to make coalition although that's difficult because as you of us might have guessed at this quite a distance between the liberal f.d.p. and the greens and therefore the coalition in the negotiations will that will last a long time and i wouldn't rule out that the s.p.d. actually reverses its policy of ruling out of the grand election especially if mr shultz doesn't survive a bad result in the local state elections in lower saxony three weeks time looking longer term what does this mean for angela merkel's power in germany in europe in particular when it comes to negotiating things like drags it and the greek debt for
2:41 am
example and also in the world as well. well this is certainly a blow to mrs merkel and her personal power she was until recently the unassailable dominant figure in german policy and this is taken that down a notch although it is still impressive she's married many managed excuse me to win a fourth consecutive term i think that as far as germany is concerned she will certainly have to take into account the you the views on domestic policy of her coalition partners but it is a fairly consensual country on europe i think it does limit her the opportunity to negotiate with mr macro on the sort of relaunch of the euro zone although the party should be working without also procure inciting they're willing to consider some piecemeal policies and in the world i think she will still remain an important figures but want to turn to when they look for a sort of adult in the but it's also important to know that she was never particularly interested in this sort of title the leader of the free world sort of confirms that she is a domestic leader with her own domestic problems that she has to deal with one of
2:42 am
the big stories of course is the rise of the f.t. party in this election and i'm going to market i said to have undermined her opponent martin short by assuming some of the socialist policies that were carried by his party do you think that she's going to have to take a similar tactic when dealing with the f.t. . well martin shultz was a sort of competitor whereas she'll see the a.f.d. as an enemy and there's someone as a party that she doesn't want to see in the german ever again after this at this period so i think that while she'll have to adapt her policies that her strategy when it comes to the f.t. will just be to ignore them and see what happens what will be interesting is whether the pressure and how are the changes they've accepted this sort of resolute centrism that she's had as you said stealing policies from the center left it will probably be the case that this will jockey for position to be her successor they'll move the party back further to the right although i think the real live there
2:43 am
