private who's in the cambodian capital. the decision by the supreme court came after a day of deliberations held amidst the tightest of security in downtown phnom penh the main opposition c n n r p party is to be the result one hundred eighteen of its senior officials are banned from taking part in politics for five years this decision had been expected by the c n n r p it had effectively ceased to function as a party a number of its and p's are in exile or are in hiding or are fearful of arrest its leader cam sorcha was arrested two months ago for allegedly plotting to overthrow the government it is based on a recording of a meeting he had with supporters overseas where he spoke about replacing the government the opposition party says he was merely talking about change through the ballot box according to the ruling c.p.p.
2:03 pm
party here and its long time prime minister stand it amounted to threatening insurrection with this move effectively removes the major obstacle that he was facing in next year's crucial and elections he will still face opposition but it will be from a number of smaller parties that will likely not have time to war going to themselves effectively to unseat him then has been in power now in cambodia for three decades he says he's determined to rule for another ten years and this decision today seems to pave the way for him to do that let's get a few now from. who's in singapore associate fellow at the use of ishaq institute thanks for being with us so what do you make of the supreme court's decision. it think no new turn in cambodian politics to war more of one party state so
2:04 pm
that really you know bring cambodia in to high and certainty ahead is the judiciary the supreme court in cambodia independent. it's it's hard to say but according to what we have observed the remarks of prime minister who are now are the past few weeks and months. dissolution of the opposition party than you can see political impact on the court decision just trying to get to the bottom of the decision whether. genuinely the court felt that there was an attempt to subvert the course of democracy in cambodia whether a crew was being plausible whether this is purely political how do you see it. well we have two opposing views from the government and from the opposition the
2:05 pm
government perceive that that was a plot to down the government through the whooshing what they call it and therefore . it is a political leader motivated move by the ruling party to eliminate the threat to the game or the threat to the power status quo so it's a quite controversial perspective here when we look at the court ruling which which view is correct is the correct one that's what i'm a mask. well i want i don't want to take a stand here but looking from what is going now it seems that. the ruling party is doing. taking a measure to eliminate the potential threat to the powers that is cool all right so
2:06 pm
what does this mean for next year's election and a political opposition in that you say the country is moving towards a one party state will there be any opposition of unsubtle next year. of course without the participation from the opposition party the main opposing party it is difficult to convince internet in our community that next year election will be free fair and meaningful because you know it's no no more main contending political party in the next year elections so that is it's hard to say i mean. election is free and fair or i could see so many things develop with chen there in singapore a south african delegation is in to zimbabwe to try to mediate a way out of the political crisis that the army seized power on wednesday and
2:07 pm
placed president robert mugabe under house arrest it was angered by the sacking of the vice president last week as a serious hell of a tussle reports now from zimbabwe as capital harare. there's an african delegation is meeting members from the army officials and the mugabe family officials are speaking so all the theories about how the scenarios could play out it's all just speculation for now nothing has been confirmed one source is saying that the catholic church is helping to mediate the political crisis and if it's alleging that president robert mugabe a want to respect the constitution of the party he wants them to wait until the december conference where delegates will gain a vote and decide whether he should step down as leader of the party and president of the country opposition parties are calling for a transitional government a unity government and they say that they want this government to involve all political players within zimbabwe and there's one suggestion not confirmed that
2:08 pm
they want the former vice president. to be part of this unity government but for now it is. until zimbabwean authorities come out and put it on record at least six police officers have been killed in an explosion in the afghan capital kabul security forces say that a number of civilians also died it's believed that it was a suicide bombing close to a political gathering. lebanon's prime minister has accepted an offer by the president of france to visit paris really announced his resignation in riyadh. two weeks ago lebanese president bashar tweeted that he hopes the country's political crisis is over french foreign minister is expected to meet harry during his visit to saudi arabia later he's calling the efforts to normalize the situation in lebanon. i reiterated france's
2:09 pm
concern with respect to lebanon sovereignty stability and independence from any foreign intervention all faiths and sects in lebanon need to be respected collective efforts must be made to restore things as they were before the resignation of prime minister saad hariri let's get some analysis now from the who's live for us in beirut so we hope we saw that the saudi arabian foreign minister speaking with his french counterpart in riyadh earlier they they say that they're on the same page as far as lebanon is concerned but judging by what they said all day. well clearly this is a face saving deal there was a confusing picture for nearly two weeks over the fate of saddam how did he and his family he said only resigned in riyadh people saw that as a shock resignation and then many in lebanon including the president believe that saddam had he and his family were being held hostage in saudi arabia he was forced to resign a really strong language coming from the president saying this was an act of aggression by saudi arabia on lebanon sovereignty lebanon reaching out to france
2:10 pm
one time colonial ruler of lebanon france mediating in the crisis weighing in trying to solve this diplomatic turmoil and then we heard from the french president late yesterday saying he invited how did he and his family and how did he accepted that invitation and that he will be coming to france in the next few days and sources close to the resigned prime minister's office have told us that how do you will be returning to lebanon to submit his resignation in the next few days so it was a very confusing picture many here are seeing this as some sort of a deal but saudi arabia has the foreign minister insisting yet again that's how to how to do was not a prince. and the problem in lebanon the source of the tension in the country is hezbollah which iran really blames the story saudi arabia blames for imposing iran's agenda on lebanon so is the lebanese president's assertion that the crisis all its hopes rather the crisis is now over they could correct is he right. well no the crimes this is not over sagal how did his fate we know now more that he
2:11 pm
you know he'll be leaving saudi arabia but the political crisis is there he comes he said met his resignation who will replace him if they replace him with a figure a candidate who is seen close to iran then lebanon risks international isolation because hezbollah is seen by some countries in the region as a terrorist organization we know that the united states and saudi arabia have taken a much more aggressive stance against iran in the region and by extension its proxies like hezbollah so they can to a point that kind of a candidate you'll need a consensus figure and that's going to be very difficult to find so there could be prolonged political paralysis in this country so this could be just the beginning we have to remember how did his resignation was clearly a saudi move against hezbollah hezbollah has members in the government so many feel that the crisis is not over but at least for the time being a clearer picture on the fate of the prime minister and his family i'd say that many thanks indeed say the heart of their lives in beirut. at least eighteen people

decades when gen don bought his electric car two years ago he didn't have to go through the license plate lottery a government measure to limit traffic he also got his car much cheaper because of a government subsidy of up to fifteen thousand dollars and unlike petrol and diesel fuel cars he can drive an any part of the city anytime he wants as long as car has enough power. ones or was about to go to a charging station but mine they will let me into the wrong place there was no charging station and not a single person around i was forced to call a rescue team in china more than half a million people bought an electric car last year that's half of all electric cars sold worldwide forcing the government to quickly build more charging stations it's been hard to keep up with the demand and car batteries often don't last much more than two hundred kilometers this by government incentives electric cars are still

not that popular here in china many consider them impractical and ugly but producers are trying very hard to make electric cars more fashionable. car makers are increasingly pressured to produce electric cars a recently announced attractive credit system allows companies to make money selling carbon credit quota to traditional car makers but some experts believe the government's plan is unrealistic and they question the benefits of electric cars if we want to. replace all the traditional cars in the north through take it that this is a lie this is the fundamentalist scientific lie to the world greenpeace says china's rapid switched to electric cars as a positive step to combat climate change but the environmental groups asked it's by far not enough because seventy percent of the country's power plants are using coal a major emitter of greenhouse gas if we really want to clean future and we really
