9:07 pm
further protests will have the impact it hopes for as many other kenyans prepare to move on from al-jazeera nairobi. anglo-american says she'd prefer to call a snap election in germany rather than lead a minority government to speaking after talks to form a coalition government broke down the three way coalition talks included merkel's christian democrats and the greens but they fell apart following the withdrawal of the free democratic party tomorrow our reports from berlin. as germany's political uncertainty increased on monday the country's president had a stark warning for the various party leaders here but. in september and the election on september twenty fourth the parties had to take on responsibility of germany this responsibility and accordance with the german constitution cannot simply be given back to the electorate already or he had met chancellor angela merkel following the collapse of talks between her party the greens the socialist
9:08 pm
democratic party and the free democratic party or f.t.p. merkel since been trying to send a reassuring message to germany and the outside world is that i can talk it is at least a day of to perfection on how to go forward. but i will do everything possible as transitional chancellor to ensure that this country will be well led through these difficult weeks the pro-business f.t.p. had been part of coalition talks in september's elections fail to deliver a majority for any one party late on sunday they pulled out suggesting they simply couldn't offer any more compromises on issues such as clean energy and immigration as. we were conducting exploratory talks not forming a government at the end you decide whether to trust that the recent common vision and it is exactly this a common vision for the country is that what's missing merkel's former partners the socialist democrats or s.p.d. have consistently ruled out to being part of another so-called grand coalition
9:09 pm
since doing badly in september's vote now they're hoping for a snap election. we think it's important that the citizens of our country the sovereign voters are able to evaluate the situation again we are not afraid of a new election is based on the election result of september twenty four we are not prepared to enter a grand coalition with german leadership seen as crucial for european union trying to push through reforms the collapse of the talks simply you're affording likely the next government will. necessarily be a stronger government because it has come about in a rather cumbersome and conflictual process which doesn't make for a very energetic or vicious government it will rather be one that will try to prick magically continue and muddle through rather than to shake up europe with new ideas the next few days will prove crucial not only in shaping germany's immediate
9:10 pm
political future but also about some of the e.u. now even if the country does avoid having to vote again and whatever shape the next government will tell you the stability that german leadership once represented is now being brought into question. here on berlin where he has been a cerebral she's the project manager at the global public policy institute a think tank focusing on german foreign policy thanks for being with us so i mean michael has already said as you put it i'm very skeptical about minority governments and new elections would be the better path how likely is that as an option now do you think it seems to be increasingly likely and today was a very dramatic day for german politics but the minority government option even if america doesn't want it no party really seems to want it the president has basically called on all parties today to make something work to form coalitions this was also hinted at his own social democrats to maybe think about it again but
9:11 pm
it seems increasingly likely that there will be new elections next year you know there will be quite difficult for says democrats to come back on that promise of not going into into government with a. the president frank had a stand. on his former party and his party and asked them to reconsider they have excluded one that going into another grand coalition because they have suffered in terms of votes every time they've done this in the past few years but much insures and most of the s.p.d. has been very strong be emphasizing that they are not going to. be going into another grand coalition with merkel and they're actually looking forward to elections which we just heard and so what was the main reason you think for the f.t. be pulling out they weren't just getting enough of what they wanted you think it is grandstanding is really hard to tell at this moment it was always going to be
9:12 pm
difficult for all parties and especially the smaller parties the greens and the f.t.p. but it's really. hard to tell the greens and the city you are saying that there was a very concrete compromise on the table and there were also a lot of issues on tax on digitalisation that were basically given to the f.t.p. as a compromise that they could have gone and run with basically and presented that to their voters there's a bit of a suspicion that the f.d.p. is basically kind of didn't want to be in government in the first place they they haven't been in government in the parliament for the last four years so it is a more comfortable position for them to be in opposition for the next few years and kind of regain their strength so that there's a suspicion that they'd never really wanted to be in government and need never really seriously tried what about voters and what do they make of the idea of another election it would be voter fatigue at this stage and if so what kind of effect would it have on the results. again this is very hard to
9:13 pm
say right now it will also depend on how the other parties and campaigning for the social democrats for example who were very unhappy with their own style of campaigning in retrospect there see this as a chance and maybe if they actually go out and make some more courageous cases on europe for example or in social policies that by and activate some voters but you're right there might be there's a big danger of voter fatigue which will then also could how did the right wing populist party that has now just two months ago made it into a problem and for the first time you mention in passing they europe presumably will this i mean it already has sent jitters through the markets and in europe all the uncertainty what do you think the impact would be i mean if for instance merkel would no longer in charge in germany would. that have a big effect on europe you think this remains to be seen
9:14 pm
right now it looks like she is likely to run the next government despite the problem us now with the. coalition forming even she seems to want to stand for a new election and there's no clear alternative within the city you that would make it easy for the city to find an alternative now for the next election so it's likely she will stand again still this is has quite dramatic consequences for europe because europe has been waiting for germany to form a government now for the last two months and if there are new elections this will be taking place next march that earliest more likely in april or later and then there again will be correlation talks so that means there's no stable government in germany and around next summer and that also means we can't in germany respond to the proposals that might call and france has put on the table on how to reform the eurozone on basically take any kind of leadership role in europe or the world so thank you very much indeed for your time thank you. coming up on this news hour
9:15 pm
from london good news for gaza as a vital border crossing with egypt is to remain open for two more days. you have small businesses are bearing the brunt of libya's foreign oil revenues. and in sports one is car racing is at a crossroads this season comes to an end in the united states. that cashel committee of the red cross says the yemeni cities of santa beda and now without clean water shortage of fuel corresponding saudi led blockade has caused pumping stations to shut down some yemeni ports have reopened and desperately needed food and aid but critics say it's not enough damage under-reports. in yemen where a humanitarian catastrophe continues unabated anger rises as supplies window.
9:16 pm
we have many people with kidney failure and cancer and many other diseases but there is no treatment where can we go. hundreds took to the streets in the city of her date on sunday demanding the saudi led coalition reopen air and sea ports to allow the unimpeded flow of much needed aid. in one of her they just hospitals where medical supplies are running dangerously low a baby diagnosed with cholera is seriously ill. yemen which is on the verge of famine is also suffering from the worst cholera outbreak ever recorded nine hundred thousand suspected cases of the disease have been recorded since april was this fact of how hospitals need anaesthetic materials surgically switches and surgical to medicines and many other things yes and all these things enter through these ports if they are closed these materials decrease. the un is growing increasingly concerned that there is a point it becomes a second. i think one where there was
9:17 pm
a million people who are living lives including four hundred children under the age of five who are those skeletal bitches that you see on t.v. those people are living in a similar existence and if we interrupt their very fragile supply which is located then those people get closer and closer to the summit. representatives of the un's office for coordination of humanitarian affairs in yemen are eager to travel to saudi arabia to discuss the issues face to face with saudi leaders but can't really afford to send a team to be able to discuss the procedures for the data or. study to do but all of the discussion charts and saying something. in addition to the humanitarian concerns a new report from the s.a.m. organization a geneva based rights watchdog says that at least seven hundred sixteen cases of rights violations were committed against civilians in yemen last month. the alleged
9:18 pm
violations included extra judicial killings physical assault arbitrary detention forced displacement torture and violations of press freedom. more than five hundred were attributed to iranian backed who the rebels who are currently in control of the capital sanaa while the saudi led coalition was deemed responsible for at least one hundred violations says the watchdog back in her data a vital port remains closed as yemenis grow ever more desperate for help. just. ahead of a larger saudi backed syrian opposition group has resigned after an eighty two year ten he had his job front of the high a negotiation is committee and he along with his spokesperson a step down the head of an opposition conference in saudi arabia a statement from he did not say why he was quitting the agency and the main anti government umbrella block which includes political and groups and has represented
9:19 pm
the opposition in peace talks. but leader of lebanon's hizbollah group has denied any involvement in the firing of a ballistic missile into saudi arabia on november the fourth a huge short while ago house on this road also dismissed accusations by the arab league that it's involved in terrorism as unfortunate or serious as you know what it has more from beirut. what really i had two messages one to the arab league responding to their statement their resolution which called hezbollah a terrorist organization and they accuse that of supporting terrorist groups in arab countries hezbollah saying that no we are not sending advanced missiles or ballistic missiles or even guns to any arab country including yemen and actually mocking saudi arabia and its allies telling them what have you done name us a battle where you fought against eisel and us are all are saying there's an international consensus that i sell is a terrorist organization but it is hezbollah it is iran it is iraq it is the syrian government they are the ones leading the fight against isis almost trying to say
9:20 pm
how can you call as terrorists when we are fighting a terrorist organization and the second message nasr law had it had to do more with internal lebanese politics you have to take it within the context of the resignation of the lebanese prime minister saad of heidi who said that he would be ready to withdraw his resignation if hezbollah disengages itself from regional conflicts and like you mentioned earlier hezbollah nasrallah saying that we are ready to pull out our advisors and our commanders and our trainers to we sent to iraq because iraq is very close to announcing victory against isis so almost saying that we sent our troops to fight the ice so there is a just cause and we don't have any other you know ambitions so is he trying to open the door to some sort of a compromise so that the how do you he can withdraw his resignation and there could be some sort of a national agreement in lebanon so those two messages coming from hezbollah trying to really justify why it extended its reach beyond lebanon's borders. libya's power vacuum has seen oil production drop sharply over the past three years

on a jersey in. the mind of the top stories here on out is there. is ruling party has started the process of impeaching president robert mugabe as the army reveals the vice president is expected back in the country very shortly. kenya's opposition has dismissed president who can get as election victory as illegitimate despite the supreme court upholding the results of last month's vote. and america says she preferred to call snap election in germany rather than lead a minority government after coalition talks broke down. returning to our top story now on the impeachment move against the zimbabwean president robert mugabe
9:31 pm
macdonald is a research in the department of government at the london school of economics he's also the former director of the crisis in zimbabwe coalition he joins us live from harare thank you very much indeed for for being with us now within the last few minutes we've had the chief of the army appearing on television and saying that the military has now agreed on a road map with president mugabe what you think that roadmap much entailed in. i think that part of the challenge is that no one really knows what they're talking about but one which was. probably. some kind of. process. the president described didn't. govern the country but it's very unclear especially given the fact that.
9:32 pm
back in the country. perhaps going ahead. to the movement. and i think that we have clearly seen from the military intervention over the course of the last week that the intent on ensuring some kind of a dignified. strain. which which we with the narrative that.
9:33 pm
i don't think that will be able to discuss it. is imagine. these particular people at the moment it is no. doubt. that. given the statement that they made last week saying that mugabe must have done in line with sentiment it would be. infected. after talking about the popular sentiment that. popular sentiment so. i think that the opposition.
9:34 pm
and in terms of the. trouble it can be a long process but i don't think i think that. the last week is that those actions . during the impeachment process is a process where people act with the later. rather than the spirit of the law and if they do that this process is dragged. through the motions rather than doing anything substantive in terms of following procedure so if they take that route and i think that. it should take a little time. by the end of this week the country should have a new president. or
9:35 pm
president of announced this designation a couple of hours ago it's a cabinet meeting at the white house he said it was long overdue the north korea had to alcatel its but this tech missile a nuclear program and its support of international terrorism and he said that on tuesday the treasury department will now announce further sanctions against north korea that even though president trump did present this as a bit of a no brainer at the cabinet meeting we understand from reporting from the state department that it wasn't a foregone conclusion that state department lawyer said north korea didn't meet the internationally legally recognized definition of terrorism there are two main examples that have been cited by the administration first of all the killing of kim jong un's half brother adam a lazy and forward and secondly the treatment of an american student or woman who
9:36 pm
was detained in pyongyang then returned to the u.s. and died subsequently a very mysterious injuries state department lawyer said that didn't meet the definition of terrorism nonetheless the administration has decided to put north korea back on this list joining iran. and syria on that list had been on the list before from one thousand nine hundred eight when it bombed a south korean airliner killing about one hundred people clearly that did meet what the state of public thought was the definition of terrorism it was then taken off in two thousand and eight by george w. bush and made a renewed push for diplomacy over the nuclear program and now once again north korea is back on a state sponsor of terrorism in the eyes of the united states of ministration she have a chance to thank you very much got us foreign ministers ending a ten day visit to the u.s. where he's been discussing the g.c.c. crisis speaking in washington d.c. mohammed bin abdul rahman of fannie said that the blockade on qatar by saudi arabia

bahrain the u.a.e. and egypt is being used as an excuse to disrupt regional stability. regional players are acting responsibly taking political gamble with the lives of other nations citizens with no exit strategy. not even wisdom prepares aid for starving children is being used as a leverage. while the atrocities of syria are being tolerated and in the same way that yemen is being put in a meaningless stalemate. now with these powers makes their attempt in lebanon. this is the month of behavior. with complete disregard for the suffering lived and did we. want to senate and jordan and state department in washington so he gave his comments ahead of
9:38 pm
a closed door meeting with the u.s. or state do we have any inkling of what happened during that meeting. we have not yet received a readout of the meeting between the secretary of state rex tillerson and mohamed had been. the qatari foreign minister but they did have a very brief public comments before they went into that meeting a couple of hours ago it is important to note that the purpose of the foreign minister's visit to washington was really to try to put more pressure on washington to help for dissolve the crisis between his country and the other countries that had implodes to blockade against back on june fifth saudi arabia in the united arab emirates and egypt this is a situation where the qatari foreign minister argued during a press event earlier on monday that not only is this having an economic impact on his country but that it's also leading to increased instability across the middle
9:39 pm
east and by couching the argument in those terms loren it might be assumed that this is a way of perhaps getting washington's attention to pay closer attention to the connections between what could be considered a regional spat among just a handful of countries and really the overall security posture of the middle east in which of course the united states has a great number of national security interests and it is that looking any closer to being resolved this crisis. it doesn't appear as if the crisis is any closer toward being resolved mr advani was asked about this during his press availability early. on monday and he said even though the u.s. president donald trump has extended an invitation for the parties to meet at camp david the presidential retreat the colorings have said yes but as far as they know the other side has not responded in the same way and so unless there are direct
