reopens to main crossings into gaza following the death of a four palestinians during mass protest a renewed push for a palestinian state by leaders at the arab league summit as israel reopens two main crossings into gaza and ukraine's president hopes to retain power in sunday's election by fighting off the challenges of a former prime minister and a comedian. so the first polls are closing in turkey's local elections that are being seen as a major test for president. already the act party has dominated turkish politics for nearly two decades but an economic recession. has led to rising food prices and high unemployment and that could see the party lose control of may or seize in the capital ankara and other big cities like a stumble they speak to. any some before as the act party has won every
election since coming to power in two thousand and two how much of a threat is it facing this time around what results are we watching in particular. well for you what we usually see in elections when we're covering them around the world obviously is the competition between you know at least two or three strong parties here the ak party essentially is competing against itself and what i mean by that is that it has been in power for so long and is achieved so much in terms of economic growth and in terms of building the country's infrastructure and military expansions and so forth that it is that's high standard that people are expecting that they are now judging them again so when you suddenly saw g.d.p. increase more than one hundred percent over the initial ten years of that party's rule if you saw for example free education being rolled out and all of these things when there is suddenly a cutback in terms of public spending or that the economy has. shrunk or has
staggered that's what people then suddenly gets angry about on the contrary they haven't seen anything significantly different from the opposition parties and that's why the anger that is being expressed by some more discontent is more so through protest votes than actual convictions wards of the other political parties and that's where we will see maybe a reduction in the act party supports as an expression of that's not necessarily the coming to power of another party they're still far from being able to actually win in national votes be it local elections or parliament sure presidential when we've seen political party alliances on both sides the opposition strategy could this coordinated strategy by opposition parties who don't necessarily support each other change the outcome. it's based on on on not exactly what i was saying in the sense that maybe not each of them on their
own know that they're not strong enough to take on rejects a virtue and have the charisma he represents an essentially the might of the party which has grown tremendously over the past fifteen years especially through the supports aligning itself with big business men and other kind of influential limits of the states and because those political parties the opposition on the wrong view themselves as the unable to or essentially defeats him in the polls they are uniting and as you mentioned you have left to right from liberals or maybe not so that are coming together they did try this approach before in presidential elections where the mh p.c. h.p. and others rallied behind one of the in a subtle glue again sort of taper on but failed at that point most likely this approach will resonates in some parts of turkey maybe where we call marginal seats where the parties in doing so well however if we're looking at the country as
a whole what where. most likely based on the polls that we've been monitoring and i were reading of the situation is that you'll see a reduction possibly of the parties supports but that the votes that have been taken away from it will either be divided amongst different parties and difference areas not necessarily concentrated on one significance a block that will then make it more of a threat or could also even lead to some sort of voter apathy but bear in mind on that last point there for you when we talk about the top of the psyche is a country that has on average more than eighty percent of vulture turnout it's had up for four decades now so even in terms of people maybe refraining from going to the polls if it is less than eighty percent whilst that would be hugely impressive if it was to take place for example in the u.k. where you have an average of maybe sixty percent of voter turnout here will be seen as a sign of voter apathy. thank you for that jamal and shi'ah live for us in istanbul
turkey in other world news the two main border crossings into gaza are open again for the first time in six days israel lifted restrictions on sunday morning after a weekend of mass protests along the fence dividing gaza and israel for palestinian spro testers were killed and two hundred forty others injured during the demonstrations mohammed john june has more from gaza. the fact that the mobile salamon areas crossings have been reopened clearly an indication that those egyptian led mediation efforts between hamas other palestinian factions and israel are on a positive track there is a mood of cautious optimism in gaza just days ago people were concerned that gaza might be on the verge of an all out war once more with israel now things have really calmed down so much so that many in gaza believe there will be an announcement in the in the coming hours that a final deal has been reached many people expect that later in the day fishermen in
gaza will once again be able to go back into the sea and resume fishing that they will be able to the coast of gaza and resume fishing among other things the situation here far less tense as i mentioned than it was just days ago and one of the reasons for that is because of what happened on saturday that was the first anniversary of the great march of return protests on saturday there were indeed flare ups but the situation remained far less chaotic than people had feared it might become so much so that in fact there was a remarkable statement issued by the spokesman for israel's army in which he actually praised how much for the restraint that was shown on saturday how mas islamic jihad and other groups actually had volunteers out at those protest site to try to defuse the situation and to try to ensure that demonstrators did not approach the fence with israel. well arab leaders say stability in the middle east
hainje is on the creation of a palestinian state they have been attending the thirtieth big summit in tenacious capital tunis the summit is being held against a backdrop of division war and unrest across the region with conflicts in yemen syria and libya also on the agenda to misha's president keda sepsis said arab leaders must ensure the global community understands the importance of the palestinian cause one of these. we reiterate how attitude that this arab land is occupied land in palestine with the rich ignition of the international community we need to consecrate the policy and we are against the violation of the land therefore we need to do everything we can to put into the occupation and reach peace and stability regional and international levels imran khan is in tunis for us where the summit is being held in iran some strong language on the palestinian issue the question though is whether it will be followed by action.
well that's absolutely right we are expecting to hear about a final communique that will come out towards the end of the summit where we're expecting palestine to be right at the top of the agenda now all of the keynote speakers have mentioned palestine in their speeches including king abdullah. the president of egypt sisi and king solomon of saudi arabia all saying that it was the key issue facing the arab summit and it's the one more than one problem that could derail the region completely now we're also hearing and we also heard very strong words from the palestinian president mahmoud abbas he actually said israel's continuation of its racist policy and the act of being a state above the law would not have been possible without the support of the american administration israel's occupation exists first and last because of the u.s. administration recognition of jerusalem as the capital of this look it removed the
issue of settlements refugees and which is the refugee agency off the table it also slammed the fact that washington had shut down the palestinian office in d.c. itself now this was a very strong words everybody else has been talking about the fact that there needs to be a palestinian state well palestinian president mahmoud abbas took it one step further and said the reason there is a palestinian state currently is because of the americans now this is likely to anger some in washington is also likely to anger quite a lot of the people who are in the summit itself who are pushing for the u.s. led deal of this century now we don't know what the details of this deal of the century is but it's already been rejected out of hand by the palestinians of themselves and now we're also hearing as well that the final communique is going to be a separate statement about the occupied golan heights now it's likely that this statement will say that the language that the arab league uses when it comes to the occupied
golan heights is that it is occupied territory and it's not so for an israeli territory as the us has decided thank you find that a man can live for us in tennis. i want to algeria as richest man and i kill spiker frezza tend to fake a has been arrested at the tunisian border he had died resigned as head of the algerian business leaders for a month there is say had been awarded large public works contracts by the government and helped fund election campaigns meanwhile gerry and living in france a gathering for a seventh week of anti-government protests against president bush to flee they are rallying in support of the millions of ontarians demanding regime change algeria zomby chief is pushing for eighty two year old what if to be declared unfit for office i mean an activist with the it to car citizen movement she says the protests continue to remain strong calling for the removal of the corrupt regime. protests
have been going on for seven weeks in france and i'm currently knowledge here is where it's been going on for six weeks in a row. the protests are not have not depend diminished over time and the message in the diaspora as well as unknowns here is the same we are sovereign we want radical change we want the corrupt regime out and we do not want the same corrupt figures to lead the transition and you can see that it's a new democratic way of expression that the people are using to make themselves heard the protest have a certain limitation they are very efficient at maintaining pressure and accelerating time however the limit is that they're still confusion about the means by which to achieve that effectively that democratic transition that is claimed. let us give context the algerian government is nonexistent prime minister has failed to constitute one there is no faith in the constitutional council which is
violent and it has always been a tool for a few to seek or just to misty and it has said nothing in the face of constitutional violations. still ahead on al-jazeera mox says he wants to start a global conversation about regulating hate speech on social media grass no drilling for oil in the oc take a u.s. judge rules donald trump executive order on an awful and invalidates. hello again and welcome back we're here cross china we are still speaking of those spots of heavy rain across much of the area particularly here on monday we're going to be seeing the very heavy rain across parts of the southern and southwestern part of china as well into the northern vietnam so annoyed it is going to be a rainy day if you there are clouds over here.
