8:07 pm
economy is expected to weigh heavily on voters' minds with g.d.p. for costs to expand just one point four percent at the slowest pace in eighty is. american additively see in yemen in santiago how tight is this presidential runoff likely to be. it's very very tight the interesting thing is that we really don't have polls because in the first round the polls were so wrong so often that they're simply not publishing their results but both campaigns have made their own their gauge have made their own polls and have determined that this will be decided by perhaps as little as thirty thousand votes now we're there is a very large turnout most people have already in fact cast their ballots i'm at the nationals stadium this is the largest voting center in all of chile and people are very excited nobody dares to say who is going to win the both candidates are extra
8:08 pm
are absolutely different we have a center right winger a conservative former president who many accuse of being more interested in big business than in the needs of ordinary chileans and a center leftist candidate who's been a journalist up until recently who has no experience at all or very little in politics and so chileans have to decide whether to go with someone who promises them i think celebrated social reform program or a candidate who promises better jobs and a better way of managing the economy under chile's very very free market economy as it is which has made this the most stable economy in the country but at the same time has left a lot of people out of the gains of the top of democracy that they want from their country marian wright and it appeared initially that sebastian pinera had the advantage in the first round he did manage to ghana a chunk of votes for him self now it's much closer how has that how is it that has
8:09 pm
managed to level the playing field. well in the first rounders have us jumping into one thirty four percent of the vote versus about twenty two from d. id but if you add up all the people that voted for the center for the center left or the left even further to the left that's fifty five percent of the votes in the first round of us campaign yoga and the more right wing candidates obtained about forty five percent so as you can see that's force being yet out to have to move more to the center to try to win over those people using his experience in the economy and as a former president who tried to do just that mary thank you very much lucien even with all the latest from what will be a very close contest there in the second round of the election. now the man leading the investigation into whether russia meddled with the u.s. election is being accused of illegally obtaining e-mails the accusations against special counsel robert mueller has been made by a lawyer from the team set up to help president trump's transition into the white
8:10 pm
house but a spokesperson from the law says that he and his team have done nothing wrong and the claims are an attempt to discredit the investigation miller is looking into whether the russian government helped donald trump win last year's election so let's get more on this now from tom a common in washington d.c. what are you hearing about why these allegations have surfaced now. well these allegations were directed in a letter to members of the house intelligence committees that are investigating this this whole issue of russian meddling in the election and. the people who look at this see this is part and parcel of the campaign that is trying to look diligent in my eyes the investigation before it actually reveals anything that implicates the president it's interesting that there's increasing calls on the parts of the on the part of the committees to actually curtail their investigation democrats on the
8:11 pm
committees say they're worried that the at least as far as the congressional investigation is concerned that that will be cut short and therefore there will be no and the congress will be out of the loop here but as you said trump as troops rather muller's group has dismissed these allegations saying that the account holders either gave them permission to access these thousands of e-mails from the transition members of the transition group or else in accordance with the criminal process had access to them and the white house in fact has said that they're not really concerned about this complaint because in effect they think that the whole investigation muller's whole investigation will be over very soon and the president will have no problems. and also in all the developments some interesting news coming from the kremlin saying that the russian president led him to send has thanked u.s. president donald trump for
8:12 pm
a cia tips that helped to prevent an attack on russian soil in the city. what are you hearing about the information that was shadowed and the subsequent conversation between the two. actually the white house has just confirmed that the call did take place at the initiative of putin as opposed to a previous call this week where trump of congrats or thanked putin vor for a lot of the american american economic performance under his administration the specifics according to the russian announcements were that yesterday the f.s.b. the russian intelligence service broke up an attempt at a suicide attack in st petersburg and that seven suspects had been arrested and in the message that putin sent to the president president trump he congratulated or thanked the cia and specifically the its director mike pump ayos had some tough
8:13 pm
words about russia in the past thanked him for for passing on this information about an islamic state in eisel group that apparently had had had returned from from syria or or iraq and in fact the russian authorities had expressed apprehension that in fact there would be such an attack in advance of the presidential elections in russia or the or just in general in in russia so this was. just another instance of the president and putin being very friendly with each other and interestingly it's just on the eve of from sit down summit tomorrow of it's his message of national security risks globally to the united states in which actually russia is expected to have a prominent position so will be interesting to see just how the president will
8:14 pm
explain just what the risk is to russia even after pump aoe and other members of the intelligence community have admitted or have agreed that the russians did meddle in the one nine hundred twenty sixteen elections thank you very much tom ackerman. and what challenges there are still to come on the program australian police charge a man accused of being a north korean agent up to try to sell million dollar missile components on the black market and skating their way to culture crimes we need the lebanese hockey team for pursuing their new sporting action in canada. welcome back to take a look at the weather across the levant and western parts of asia so pretty quiet at the moment following conditions for the most part temperatures average slightly
