a coup five years ago with most of the ballots counted at party has seven point six million votes about five hundred thousand more than the main opposition party scott heiler has more from bangkok. thailand an elected leader for the last five years voting early on election day. is looking to keep his job through the ballot box he became prime minister after the military coup in two thousand and fourteen he's the candidate of the military backed party. i hope everyone will want india election today to exercise your rights everyone wants democracy therefore everyone should exercise our rights into transparency the opposition party put ty linked to exiled former prime minister talks and has won every election since two thousand and one in early counting it's neck and neck with hollande. and a new political party in this election a future forward which targeted young and first time voters is also enjoying stronger than expected results. thailand's oldest political party the democrats
9:10 am
which has had a strong base in bangkok suffer disappointing results its leader and former prime minister obviously it away resigned a few hours after the polls closed the military government had a big head start going into election day the constitution gives military leaders the power to appoint the two hundred fifty member senate voters elect the five hundred seat lower house the number needed to form a government is three hundred seventy six some see this election as a building process back to democracy after five years of military rule why i said this election is not just about choosing a candidate but it's also about really creating the foundation for democracy i took from my feeling. very difficult for me to shoot. my living entity i've seen almost the same i do people many people in thailand i see maybe about. fifty percent who did not make the decision the election commission says sixty five
9:11 am
percent of registered voters have made their way to the polls a practice to show transparency each ballot is read aloud before it's being recorded now this process is being replicated it more than ninety two thousand polling stations across thailand so volatility after the election is very possible because the number you know the rules are stacked in the military government's favor but the numbers the electoral number stacked on the opposition's favor so we have some kind of a some tension there some some deadlock and that deadlock could do more than frustrate many ties it could also make it difficult for the government to run the country it's got harder al-jazeera bangkok. the leaders are for a mania and say they will recognize jerusalem as israel's capital following the lead of donald trump they made the announcement of the american israel public affairs committee conference in washington a powerful lobby group romania plans to move its embassy to jerusalem while honduras will open an office there for trade and cooperation the move will anger

9:14 am
aden it's beyond imagination that there's oil shortage here in aden can you believe that patrol is not available in the patrol stations but is available in the black market i am astonished to see trucks carrying patrol from the even oil refineries but no idea where these trucks go and where the patrol. profits from yemen's booming coffee industry and farms have. plummeted because of high fuel prices if yemen depended on it's all exports before the war production has almost stopped since the conflict began is under the control of emirati backed fighters. but the main problem is this the port and who they are there to which eighty percent of food aid comes in and that is out of bounds for most. the impact of the war and the crumbling economy has forced within twenty four million yemenis to depend on aid just to survive and humanitarian aid is not enough you need
9:15 am
a political solution that is going to allow the economy to revitalize that will allow restrictions on imports to be lifted that will allow sellers to be paid the jobs created markets to be revitalized. such sectors to come back to life again so that people. you know slowly can start to sort of resume a life that used to exist prior to the contract a hope that perhaps many yemenis still have despite the real threat of hunger and famine priyanka gupta. people in australia living in the path of cycling veronica are being urged to stay indoors as the dangerous storm moves away the town of port hedland was hit hardest as across the north west coast on sunday with winds up to one hundred sixty kilometers an hour veronica is expected to head out over to the indian ocean on tuesday. mexico has left us presidents by the lopez obrador was

9:17 am
a backlash made it change its mind. and this is all come from a president who's long championed the poor and vulnerable at school some surprise and indignation. he says the measures necessary to stamp out corruption said that i mean it's finished around thirty years of these programs which were just used to win elections and get media attention. programs which encourage corruption using the name of the humble the poor to do it that's all finished. by then the place something in the government social ministry was recently implicated in a monumental corruption scandal but civil society groups say the wholesale scrapping of programs for the pool is not the answer and some worry there are other motivations well my concern is that is really an attempt to concentrate power to have all the social problems in their hands to be
9:18 am
a political platform i mean that if you really committed to transparency and avoid the corruption will be transparent spread in the sense of the of a new cadre of of the new of the new programs that you're putting together none of that so far in place. the new programs he's talking about include expanded help for students the old and those with disabilities the president it seems does want social programs just ones built to his own design john home an al-jazeera mit scarcity. the headlines on al-jazeera a summer if u.s. special counsel robert muller's report says neither donald trump nor any of his officials knowingly colluded with russia during the twenty six the election campaign but the report didn't draw a conclusion on whether president trump attempted to obstruct the court of justice
9:19 am
course of justice trump though says he's been fully exonerated. it was just announced there was no collusion with russia the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard there was no collusion with the russian there was no obstruction and none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration. that our country had to go. to be honest it's a shame that your president is so to go through these four before i even got elected it began. and it began illegally and hopefully somebody is going to look at the other side. pro-military party has taken the lead in early election results of the first. five years ago kenya's government is warning more than a million people are at risk of starvation as parts of the country endure

9:21 am
coming up next stay with us. five years after a military coup thailand holds an election with millions of people cast your ballot for the first time and that is the vote democratic and how much power is the military prepared to hand over this is inside story. over there welcome to the program i'm not clark the last time thailand trying to hold an election in two thousand and fourteen it ended with
9:22 am
a military coup an army general took over as prime minister and promised to hold a new election but it's taken five years for people to be given the chance to vote well ninety two thousand polling stations open across thailand on sunday the prime minister probably. wants to remain in office but he faces a strong challenge from tie the most prominent and tea party linked to the former leader attacks and she know what six million young people are casting their ballot for the first time and since the coup numerous new parties have sprung up to court their votes. in the past we've seen that nothing has changed i want to know how much change this election is going to bring. i want things to improve we've had too many conflicts in the past. and i want the country to move forward in the right direction and without any corruption that's the way it should be well
9:23 am
it's here now from got highly he reports from bangkok. for the most part smooth polling across thailand at the more than ninety two thousand polling stations across this country six thousand here in bangkok alone now there are a couple of incidents that have been reported to the election commission they say they're going to investigate those there was a neighbor countries represented as a neighbor countries invited to observe the elections here by the thai government they have been peppered throughout we've gone to a couple of polling stations throughout the day here on sunday in bangkok and for the most part things were going smoothly and the voters were excited we talked to a couple of young voters and this is very interesting because the last polling the last time thais cast ballots was eight years ago so there have been a sizeable chunk of people who grew. so they could finally vote this time around seven million we spoke to one of those and he said he was excited to cast his ballot but he came in kind of eyes wide open that's because the way the constitution is written now was written by the military government who has ruled
9:24 am
this country over the last five years they had a head start coming into election day two hundred fifty seats in the senate already there's so ballots being cast the voters understand that that's going to be a little bit of a challenge when it comes to forming the government particular when it comes to just how democratic it's going to be for inside story well thailand's army has repeatedly ousted democratically elected governments. twelve times since nine hundred thirty two in fact of the last two coups were against prime ministers from the chena what family texan should know what was ousted in two thousand and six while he was out of the country his sister young luck came to power in two thousand and eleven but within three years she was overthrown and fled from thailand commander general. was named prime minister promised elections but they didn't happen a new constitution was approved in two thousand and sixteen the military giunta appoints the upper house and all governments over the next twenty years must adhere
9:25 am
to a military strategic plan. all right let's bring in our panel in bangkok we have seen it tyler was a human rights watch in turkey michael months a son who is a senior fellow and coordinator of the thailand studies program at singapore's i.c.'s use of institute and also in bangkok we have been on an economist and professor of international business at the times business school welcome to you all and soon i if i could start with you human rights watch so first elections since the military takeover desists signal the beginning of the return to democracy i just came back from of the election and vote count atmosphere across bangkok is people showing into a. home against the odds repressive political environment where freedom of
9:26 am
expression freedom for political activity have mean restricted they are acting against the odds by ass electro rules clearly the w.c.s. of type people after spoken out whether we would say that why you say it's being translated into transformation of thailand in to democratic civilian rule we will stuck with and not a form of dictatorship that the same k. take off their military uniforms put on business suit and go on with asked business as usual that is remain to be seen privy to what it wants you all thought about this given the turmoil we've seen in in recent years isn't the best that we this is the best that we can hope for a step towards democracy democratic transition under military custody if you like. if we're looking at the implication of the election at least this is we know that this is not the food fully democratic election with the rules and the regulations
9:27 am
being written the way it has been but it's a start to go in that direction after this has to be. look at how how the government would be from and how how things with. that is but i think one thing is clear is that people have spoken out and you can see from the way the direction of their vote is chilling that they're clearly the voices of people who voice their approval of. the government or not and then there are also new voices coming up and i think it's quite clear that the people have spoken out and if this voices are not taken into consideration for the way going forward i think that would lead into to further the sort of perhaps it would be how high land move to the next state right but something we'll explore is the
9:28 am
program goes on the i just want to ask you privy to quickly from your perspective in the toilet and all reporters are reporting a public since relief that people actually just able to vote once again is that your sense. yes this is so people have been able to vote again and i think people have cost that their voice who they prefer to who they prefer to elect to become that next government i think that is already a good start for the democratic plan for thailand although when i'm not very happy with the roof and the regulation but the fact that the election took place today that is already. a good move forward you know the rules in the regulations michael months on take given the the army has has really written the constitution they they've secu the way this election could go they will remain influential in all probability whatever the outcome can you explore first
9:29 am
a little bit what that actually means well a few moments ago you used the word army custody of the country and i think that we can't speak about our because city because the national council for recent order dictatorship has been incompetent at political management during the period when enjoyed absolute power so it does not have the competence to exercise custody over thailand in the future especially now that there will be an elected parliament in which voices of dissent will be represented and voices of dissent will have standing the other point i would make regarding these rules is that everybody in thailand and observers internationally understand that these rules have skew. the campaign and the terms under which people have been elected as a result as an exercise in legitimation these polls were a failure before anybody cast that evokes and i think that we need to understand
9:30 am
that the rules imposed on voters were self-defeating because they expose the illegitimacy of the juncos effort to remain in power but i would repeat my point that i put to a privy to that some i. argue that this is a process a necessary tennstedt step if you like towards restoring democracy i think that if i think that if we use language like that sir we're conceding a process of arbor tura like what the brazilian dictatorship went through be after the one nine hundred sixty s. and i think to to concede a process to a military dictatorship is essentially to concede to the military dictatorship vision of the future of iowa ticks and i think it's unfair to the millions of time voters you this campaign as a competitive process from the beginning and i don't think they they viewed it in
9:31 am
those terms at all when they again said i have a human rights watch you keep a close eye on what goes on in the country give us a sense of the military rule in thailand what kind of authority sixty nine million people live under well under military rule that now been five vs general president when their leader was stay at a coup in two thousand and forty and it's being no mean at that as a promise a candidate why still meant handing unchecked absolute power that he has will without any have been he this power will remain weak type people until a new government is formed and the f.x. off. all this up in our preview including in violation human rise will remain effective that it's one fact and not a fact that human rights watch has been demanding all along is if the window is serious about holding an election that will be recognized not only by high people
9:32 am
but by the rest of the world the election need to be consecrated will it require and all of penance and being and for unmanned but that is not the case as the one does to trolling people in jail for criticizing military rule the junta still restraint freedom of expression and media freedom t.v. station which doll house balkan news on call were removed from all sections this did not bode well in the lead up to election day it type people seem to be fairy commit that that they are now making and taking and up he would cost to push back repressive grow off the wouldn't to push back against an even playing fail because in this election general preview doesn't have to win majority in the lower house he simply need one hundred twenty eight states and that come by with senate us two hundred fifty of them that there are people can say i will and that
9:33 am
will be enough to give general prayuth suffrage and support to return to power as prime minister rudd said he thought he could return to power without winning the popular vote we need to respect that weiss is right privy to if one party of the opposition party of the opposition collective wins the popular vote but does not she win because of the way the military has skewed the rules what do you think the reaction will be on the street how will the electorate respond will they respond with resignation will some kind of resistance. i think it is quite clear from before the election that this election is written so that a youth could continue in his power prime minister and i think the number that has been mentioned is already you know in that direction but i think the number of these strong opposition that we have seen by the people going for the parties that stand firmly that they are against and the military is also affected that needs to
9:34 am
be taken into consideration that after this it would be a coalition government and this spite the number of these that they would have in terms of selecting the prime minister but in running the government and in running the government that would mean that they wouldn't let the government would run into quite a strong opposition so we are looking at. coalition party that would be not yes it would be a general prayuth but it would not be a dictatorial that no one can pause or can question at least we would have the opposition in the house and that things would be moving along more and i think most of the thai people know that this government that would be formed after this election is unlikely to last very long but this election is not the end in itself
9:35 am
and perhaps it could be considered as an election for the next one that we can move forward for otherwise we would remain in the same that. so to me i see this election as a way forward to the next step and despite this perhaps if it be left government it will not be true unchecked like it was before this election right and when you see the next just very briefly outline for us what you believe the next step would be. i think if they're that government the way that they would run into a strong coalition strong opposition party and this could lead into more of the and stability of the next government that might lead to the next election and i think that would be also strong movement to to to to really to rewrite the constitution and perhaps that would be the constitutional crisis that this
9:36 am
government would be getting into with their very strong opposition that we are likely to see michael is that you'll sense that if you have this the status quo is kind of maintain but with this if it's really fragile coalition that she presents an opportunity for change in the quite near future. i think that's right and i think many students of thai politics have noted in the past year or so that military parties program and parties. designed to be vehicles for the military have a very poor track record in high political history the only thing that i would also point out is that we need to be attentive to the possibility that. general break or a military figure will assume the premiership and then attempt to govern without reference to parliament because as dr velveeta has pointed out life could be
9:37 am
miserable for someone like general but youth in parliament when he did not enjoy men or a majority of seats in the lower house that will introduce the temptation to use parliament to gain the premiership and then to try to freeze it out of the political process by relying on. not elected institutions to govern the country and that's a risk that i think we need to be attentive to and see not how do you assess that risk if parliament is is frozen out of the political price as well that there is no political process is that well it kiss possible ass as mike was suggested that. the next prime minister wish to have no general prayuth can grow using xico to be created by pos in parliament three checks and balances and we must not forget that. the drop off that you know the current constitution.
9:38 am
political parties in the parliament and in the government to follow twenty year snatch strategy so whatever promise during election will be tested against the wouldn't twenty years strategy if there is no compatibility what will is the junta blueprint for the country that is number one number two is given the possibility of having a fragile. coalition government that got them and would realise it when my military backing which has repeatedly threatened to stay and not get cool to quell the disturbances after the election so we are heading to what uncertainty and not a shaft of uncertainty in type politics one wonders where you're an economist one wonders where thailand's economy is going if the status quo is maintained or at least if we get into a situation where there's this fragile coalition tell us
9:39 am
a little bit about how thailand has performed economically since june to control it and what your senses about where we could be heading. if we are looking at the thai economy i think it's fair to saying that thailand has had its lost decade because of our political trouble mystically and i think since the who has taken power although they try to claim that they have managed to restore confidence and growth in the economy showing by the g.d.p. growth coming up to three to four percent we might say that that could be one way of looking at it but if you look at the long term thailand has been in this kind of political uncertainty for a long time and that to the opportunity costs for the country we spend so much of our energy and i will resources talking about how to get rid of sin or how to get
9:40 am
rid of the junta and the task at hand is that thailand is not alone in this region and why us moving not moving forward and other people moving forward thailand's economy is now you know not doing the best in the south east asian region and although we are performing three to four percent which is world average growth but i think that thailand would have to be concerned about its economy is global and regional competitiveness and its structural challenges that we have to address for example the reform of the education the reform of the public sector and the increase of the productive u.-t. all those area major and if thailand remains in this political uncertainty i'm afraid that that would not well for the future of thai economy believe it is very brief if you would just give us a sense of the potential that thailand has if it if it did have
9:41 am
a settled political landscape. with that if thailand becomes much more unstable we have a strong opportunity in the region if you look at thailand the economy which is about seventy million but combine that with the countries in the region what we call c.l. in v cambodia. and vietnam thailand stands at the very geographically strong location to be the gateway into those market that's one strong potential second thailand is not the country that is competing with the kind of the low and we could be the country that move forward more into the strong value adding activities in the economy and that's one area that thailand can be one country that improve itself but as it is right now i think thailand
9:42 am
faced the risk of the structural challenge of improving its. competitiveness in many areas we still be high countries in the region and without addressing those it would be undermined thailand's potential in moving to become the regional leader not only in economic terms but also in the political area we have not done well in terms of leading the asean region despite being the us in chad this year so with with those. uncertainties perhaps hopefully becoming more settle i think thailand has a lot of homework to do still we have some potentials to go forward and with the woman you know i'm going to jump in there because we just knew that going michel i mean every my family coming towards the end of the should be to realize the potential that michel that peter has been talking about. do you think it's
9:43 am
something that can be dealt with within the nation itself or does it need international pressure as well. i believe that there is plenty of awareness and plenty of talent within thailand to address these problems the awareness of some of the issues that dr david has discussed it is a very long standing in thailand and there is certainly the capacity internally to address these issues. and finally if i can come to you soon i even though democracy may not be restored in thailand in a short time where does your sense for optimism. if it doesn't fool well if that areas and the optimism. kick in from today's exercise of a type people it's right about people have spoken out in very high number it has hit a record high that pasta eighty percent are now in most places that is one thing to
9:44 am
be recon with and not a piot that we must not forget immediately after the two thousand and fourteen coup that will come in to he has said preconditions to normalize sation with thailand that is thailand to hold a credible free and fair elections so the piii is whether the well community was standing with thai people and set the bar high for darick nation rejection of this election. it's certainly a pivotal pivotal moment in politics in politics we appreciate your time everybody thanks very much indeed for joining us for this important discussion thank you i guess as you know michael is on a. patent on and thank you for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website out there dot com for further discussion go to our facebook page that is facebook dot com ford slash a.j. inside story of course you can also join the conversation on twitter. a.j.
