protesters and then. nairobi was. adamant they said any reforms that. election. can use constitution is not clear on what happens when a candidate who is from everyone but parliament has now passed amendments to electoral laws that could allow can to be named the winner. twenty six and the president has about spades i mean being an adequate space then it's very easy to say that we'll have a president removed command of the legitimacy and respect from all corners of the electoral commission will decide what happens next but if any of his decisions can be contested in court kenya faces one of many possibilities including declaring incumbent president or a kenyatta as the only remaining candidate the winner of the rerun all holding elections and then declaring kenyatta the winner for holding fresh elections within

8:05 pm
away the region's political autonomy or insley reports from madrid. madrid does not like being told what to do by the council lands for once parliament was united as the journalist speculated the cabinets agreed the spanish lion bit back against the catalan demands that their independence will happen the prime minister said if you say it out loud we will take back your powers no dice no deal and you have until monday. you've held a cabinet meeting and we've decided the cattle and government must confirm whether or not they have declared independence regardless of whether it's going to take effect or not this is a requirement necessary before any other measures can be taken by the government including invoking article one fifty five. so back it goes to barcelona madrid no society there is split some separatists want to session now others are nervous
8:06 pm
half the population hates the whole idea how long should they wait we know there are very important governments and people around the world who are ready to assist in mediation we've got the group of the elders with coffee with a bank a move on with desmond tutu who are ready to exercise their mediation the only small detail which we are missing is that we have nobody on the other side of the table because it just said he was not accepting mediation. all the while europe looks on surely not another country fracturing itself there is no support at all in brussels for the catalan independence movements madrid knows that it is the side with the powerful. many people in madrid regard roy's statements his demand that counts alone your clarify its position on independence as a shrewd one by putting the ball straight back in catalonia is caught it potentially exposes divisions inside the independence movements that might buy
8:07 pm
madrid some time take the pressure out of the immediate situation but also leave the crisis open ended. where the protestors in barcelona go from here is a good question madrid would like nothing more than for them to turn on each other destroy their own movements that would rule out the need for mediation which madrid insists there is no place largely al-jazeera which it must go from madrid to speak out as there is jonah hole so gentle is there any sign of what the catalan government's answer is likely to be. no official response yet from the generality that's the building behind me where the regional government sits and women demand has his office but clearly the time is short the talk is ticking there is this timeline now he's got to respond by monday as to whether he stands or not behind that declaration of independence on tuesday night if he does well then he's got until thursday to rescind it to change his mind
8:08 pm
before that section one five five is applied and regional autonomy is revoked is taken back to madrid that's the situation they're in as to a hint of where they stand well there has been an interview with al-jazeera by one of the senior members of his coalition is to coalition saying that what we are offering here is open dialogue with no preconditions there's a formula they've come up with for for mediation that's what they want to pursue it's a bit of a nonstarter madrid has consistently rejected mediation mr ruff did so again in the parliament to softer noon but there is another little avenue for talks which appears to have opened up and that's according to the head of the socialist party the main opposition party in madrid who says he's reached an agreement with mr rajoy and the popular party to come up with a parliamentary commission that will spend six months looking at reforms to the constitution in the way that the regions are governed basically to give them more autonomy and that looks very much like the beginning of
8:09 pm
a sort of enticement to the catalans in terms of saying step away from your claims to independence and you can look forward to a greater degree of autonomy down an avenue of talks but that is going to be something very difficult for mr couey to mourn to sell to the certainly to the hearts of session ists here yeah it does appear that mr moore is in rather an all quit position right now damned if he does declare independence damned if he doesn't . yes i think that's absolutely right that is the position that madrid has put him in because if he does come out and say look it was just a symbolic declaration we don't stand by it well then he risks in people alienating those hard secessionists and he relies on in particular the far left the party for this pretty fragile majority that he's got to the parliament here if he comes out and says yes we do stand by this declaration and then he risks alienating the the more moderate people in his coalition who take of this slightly more cautious line he of course invites section one five five and all the consequences that that
8:10 pm
entails he knows that there is a large large percentage of population here possibly more than half who don't want independence at all so what he may try to do is basically hedge fired say as little as possible push this dialogue line try to keep his coalition together and hope for some constitutional agreement down the line but equally possible is that as the dream of independence appears to drift further and further away the hardliners break away and the entire pro independence movement here falls apart and that's quite possibly what madrid is banking on china thank you. syria's interior ministry says two people have been killed and six others injured in an attack on a police headquarters in the capital damascus at least three suicide bombers are said to have tried to storm the building two of the attackers were killed on the spot while the other detonated his suicide vest iraq's prime minister has formally
