polls close in israel's election with both main candidates claiming victory. at a club this is out there and live from london also coming up in the program algeria's interim president addresses the nation calling for unity offers appointment spot for the protests. in sudan seven protests are killed in major demonstrations calling for president bashir to resign. and the u.k. prime minister seeks european support for a plan to delay breaks it once again. all
right main candidates in israel's election have claimed victory exit polls show prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his opposition the opposition leader benny gantz are neck and neck and netanyahu is trying to remain in office for a fifth term his main rival guts the country to embrace a new dawn when he cost his ballot in tel aviv well the channel twelve preliminary exit poll shows prime minister benjamin netanyahu could party has thirty three seats in benny gantz is blue and white coalition party thirty seven seats a lot of other vote counting to be done in other seats to be taken into account let's join of course one hundred four cities life from netanyahu so they could party headquarters in tel aviv and harriet still very much in the balance but as it stands how is it shaping up. for you i mean this is the look at h.q. as you say it doesn't really have the feel of a victory celebration there is there been some chance of b.b.b.
in the background a little time ago people were throwing paper in the air but there's a sense of trying to will that to happen really rather than affirming that it has because as you say the results of very inconclusive from these three exit polls so far one of them does give the blue my party benny gantz a four seat lead thirty seven to thirty three in the knesset the other two main ones have it much closer thirty six to thirty seven in favor of dance one house than tied entirely and two out of three of those polls give the the right wing bloc in israeli politics a pretty clear lead over benny gantz and his party and that the kinds of parties that would be able to form a coalition in opposition to. the could and his natural right wing allies so there are still many questions unanswered though because we don't yet know which of the smaller parties which are have been hovering around the at the threshold of the
share of the vote three point two five percent. it is necessary for any party to make it into the israeli knesset the parliament and until we get clear a cut results on those questions we don't know exactly what the composition is likely to be both of them are declaring victory there are palestinian israeli parties as well that could be very crucial in all of this the turnout in those areas was said to be much lower than in previous elections at one point during the course of the day does seem there was a bit of a rush to the polls after a lot of encouragement very late on so will those parties which did have thirteen seats in the previous knesset will they have a similar kind of presence this time that could be crucial as could the presence of some of the smaller right wing parties especially given the fact that benjamin netanyahu has been encouraging all right wing is to try to come and vote for could to ensure that he got the biggest party at the end of the of all of the counting he may well a four inch pull in short of that and will rule need to rely on those very sorts of
small parties which he may put in danger by sucking some of the votes away from them so really where the very early stage of what a will be a difficult process to get all of the final results counted and be it's going to be a very controversial potentially and complicated process with both parties saying they want a chance to form a coalition and so i see here and see there really is going to change it all is that. yes it could be very crucial just a few thousand votes here or there cost for a small party or leached away from a small party and we we don't know yet exactly how the that the voting went in the last two hours even because the exit polls only take votes up until eight pm polls close at ten pm so there are there's a little gap there of so far on. unfold voting intention
and all. so there is the question of the soldier's votes they started voting earlier than most people but their votes go in a special pile which is counted in the knesset later in the israeli parliament later and we're not expecting those results in until thursday it could be something as small as a small proportion of the israeli electorate as the soldiers could be decisive in deciding exactly which of the smaller parties makes it and which doesn't at the moment under threat is the party of the israeli justice minister and education minister the justice minister saying that her newly formed party. they're going to sleep on it and see what happens tomorrow so they're in real mortal danger it seems as is what was seen as a rising star in israeli politics the culture nationalist ultra right wing libertarian mushy phailin who had a new party there's a hoot or identity party which seem to be surging in the polls there was talks of
him maybe even getting into double figures well he is right on the cusp of potentially not getting in at all as well so all of these hanging questions as we wait to see how and who will try to make the next israeli government and it may take some time to get those questions answered harry force of the time being thanks very much indeed for that now to give you some sort of idea of just how close it is and how tight it is both candidates are claiming victory over twitter opposition leader benny gantz has tweeted we won the people of israel have spoken thanks to thousands of activists and over a million voters in these elections there is a clear winner and a clear loser bibi that's benjamin netanyahu promised forty seats and lost big time and the president sees the picture and the government should be cost on the winner . there is no other option ok i mean while israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu he said the right wing blog led by the likud party won a clear victory i think the citizens of israel for that trust i will begin forming
a right wing government with natural partners tonight's let's bring in senior political analyst who joins me live now from doha as watching these events with interest and what was interesting talking to harry there with the scenes behind him because it certainly wasn't a sense of victory there at this point in time that's true because the exit polls are still photo relating the last accuracies if you will look i think to make a long story short there are three exit polls now and if you take two of them you would say that prime minister to now will be able to form a government with narrow majority of perhaps sixty two or sixty four seats out of a hundred twenty the third the exit polls would say he would not get more than fifty nine hence he would not have a majority on the other hand an average of all the exit polls thus far well tell us
that prime minister that they know might get a sixty one or so seats if the if the average of all the three exit polls is correct. on the other hand i cannot see from the early results on all three israeli channels how binny guns will be able to form his own government without likud because he probably could depend on the eight labor party vote or seats the five merit seats and that will get him something around fifty he said already that he will not go into any coalition with other parties hence the best he can do is something like fifty five seats and that's not a majority which takes me to the last scenario which i am seeing to be more and more probable now which is gone and that the neo forming the so-called national zionist unity government and if if each one of them has
something like thirty some seats that means that will get them certainly the seventy majority seats in the one hundred twenty seat knesset so if that was to happen would netanyahu stay on as prime minister well that's not clear of course it depends on what kind of a partnership there will have but my guess is because he has his having an indictment potentially coming in in days after the elections my guess is that gunns who would probably win two or three more seats than at the know would probably be the first prime minister in whatever arrangements they have in order to make sure that if not then you know it does have those indictments that he would take the time in order to prove his innocence or otherwise be sidelined by a different likud leader and what would a national unity government look like it was there that much difference between the
two men alternately. that's a very good question certainly for the palestinians there isn't much of a difference and certainly for the palestinians every single national unity government was bad news it was bad news because the national unity government usually have the common denominator among two basically right wing governments one is sort of center right and the other is extreme right likud and blue white together would form a solid israeli front against the palestinians not for peace because that then you know would have a veto over all the decisions with trump basically giving israel one gift after the another one week after another there's absolutely no point for any national unity government to be making any concessions of one can call them that way to the palestinians and hence a sort of defied national zionist unity government between netanyahu and guns would
spill terrible terrible news for on the on the peace front on the negotiations front on the palestinian front and so on so forth but in terms of their own arrangements are more on the jewish collective within israel i'm sure that will make a lot of people happy because a lot of the a lot of those people who voted for the likud and blue white list they just don't want to be held hostage to the smaller right wing parties or to the religious right wing parties and i think that would might make the basis for both likud and blue list happy to see that the two giants form a majority government in israel can eventually see her role develops and thanks very much early exit polls showing may the main rivals neck and neck both leaders now claiming victory more mature thanks a lot. all right still to come here on al-jazeera iran spreads it warns his country

algeria where people have returned to the streets to protest against the appointment of the interim president. the seventy seven year old was chosen by parliament after weeks of demonstrations forced abilities beautifully cut to step down he's address the nation calling for peace. i want to unify the nation and carry out elections which are transparent and proper the government will also instructed the departments to supervise these elections honestly in a fair and impartial fashion i urge everybody to overcome our differences and work together to cooperate to lay the cornerstone for a new area. this is the man who will lead algeria for ninety days until a new president is elected the speaker of the upper house of parliament. was appointed interim president by the parliament
a few days after these beautifully designed his decision followed weeks of unprecedented protests against his book but with a clear cause a replacement faces a daunting task he's widely unpopular and seen by many algerians as a member of the same elite accused of corruption rigging votes and inefficient governance but one says he's hoping to build bridges with his opponents were in need i need everyone ensuring this period in our country to strictly apply the constitution and work hard faithfully and with dedication and so the people can make their decision and to choose their elected president but but on the streets the discontent continuous. the same protesters who wanted to flip out unhappy with been salles appointed and they are determined to push for a real change yes we have come out today in order to oppose ben salah ben certainly
we don't need you. we are here so the ones who are governing the country leave because they are robbing and not building the country they are destroying in. a serious political crisis began in february when president bush to the high announced he would be seeking a fifth term in office has been in power since one thousand nine hundred nine but barely seen in public since suffering a stroke into thousand and thirteen after weeks of protests calling for him to step down the army withdrew its support for the eighty two year old president and the jury has longest serving president eventually resigned but for many algeria's their fight is far from over they want a clean sweep of the political establishment and the national unity government to
lead the transition to democracy. in sudan seven protesters have been killed on the fourth day of a mass sittin at army headquarters the crowds in khartoum are demanding the removal of president bashir after three decades in power police commanders have ordered officers not to confront peaceful demonstrators gore gave me the latest. was. standing firm outside ami headquarters in the capital khartoum protesters chant down with the regime and. six hours earlier security force personnel opened fire on demonstrators in an attempt to break up their four day long mass sit in soldiers who saw the attack intervene to protect protest is letting them into their headquarters and shooting at the government security forces. a spokesman for the military says there is no splits in the armed forces and security forces remain
united. the mo of the hope but i mean what about the police national security and intelligence forces are supported by the army we needed to consider certain things before moving the enthusiastic protesters outside the area very well prepared plan has helped us to control the situation in a peaceful way. some offices that have been openly siding with protest was never going to make it all of you let me say that we're here now because we're taking the side of the people we are standing with the people nobody else. protesters and the opposition sudanese congress party a calling on president obama al bashir to resign they want the military's help in forming a transitional government the leadership of the army if they. are disposed to the name of the people they lead there is falls to the. the whole of the opposition they are in then getting the unity of god yourself on this we lead the
country for chaos so i think they have no other option but to what is positively to the demands of the people the governments imposed a state of emergency since february after that crackdown failed to stop the largest outcry during alba she's thirty year room. he's asked the ruling national congress party to help restore stability and. the government says change can come through the ballot box but protesters on the streets insist they want change now victoria gates and a al-jazeera. britain's prime minister has met key leaders ahead of an emergency summit in brussels on wednesday to resume a held talks with the french president among all macro and germany's angela merkel hoping to convince the two to back her request to delay breaks it until june the thirtieth without the approval of the blog the u.k. will crash out on friday for a challenge has this report. can anything save britain from its bricks in misery
the government's withdrawal agreement has sunk beneath the waves in a compromise talks with the opposition labor party show few signs of compromise where heads continue the discussion somewhere looking forward to hearing what the government has to say those calling for a second referendum or increasing the hope with surprising new faces are joining their ranks like hugh merriman a conservative m.p. who wants bricks it and the people's vote that was my message in the whole that i wasn't preaching to the choir was he they want a people's vote because they want to go the complete opposite way that i do my message so they almost two hundred m.p.'s they voted for the deal conservative pays three times like i have is that if you want this thing through you've got to find the best operators for it and that's going to be the people it's not parliament we don't know majority for the reason may has travelled to walk europe for a june thirtieth rex's extension it's been called her begging tour in germany.
there was nobody to me to. angela merkel corrected the unfortunate mistake and. then on to paris the e.u. seems minded to give the u.k. longer to find a brics a plan b. perhaps till the end of the year bracks or those who want the u.k. out on friday with no deal hates this idea and they are receiving warnings if we were trapped in against our will i believe we will become a trojan horse within the european union frustrate cheats. unlikely to cooperate so much language is being heard in europe so ahead of wednesday's brics it summit in brussels they're drafting conditions for any long extension. france for example doesn't want the u.k. taking part in e.u. budget so so choosing the next european council president there's even talk of some sort of headmasters review in a few months time to make sure that the u.k.
is behaving itself and it's difficult to see that going down in parliament or the country as anything other than another humiliation britain still technically leaves the e.u. at twenty two g.m.t. on friday but as the hours tick by rex it has never seemed so far away. al-jazeera under. iran's president has come out with a strong response and threats of the us decision to label its elite revolutionary guard a terrorist organization has said rouhani called trump's unprecedented move a mistake and has warned that his country could develop more advanced nuclear technology if washington continues to exert pressure. shish. today we inaugurated twenty six centrifuges and if you continue your oppression in the near future you will see centrifuges if your intention was reducing iran's military through these sanctions since last year until now do you yourself know
that we produce missiles and veterans that are far from your thoughts was in those ravi has more now from tehran. well we have yet to see how the designation of the islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terrorist organization by the united states will play out in the long run experts here into her and do see this as an incremental step yet another incremental step in american efforts to push for regime change in iran that's been the stated policy of the white house of u.s. president donald trump and many experts here see this as a symbolic gesture since iran is already struggling with so many sanctions you see this is an important incremental step in that stated u.s. policy but experts here also say that donald trump has done the i.r.g.c. a favor and this is something that is likely to help them gain support domestically and we are seeing senior leaders of the government have closed ranks behind the r.g.c. with with with public displays of support and with condemnation for this u.s.
move we saw it play out in parliament on tuesday when lawmakers proposed a bill to carry out ressa procul steps against the united states as well as continue to strengthen support for the i.r.g.c. even more and in a show of public support many of those lawmakers who were chanting death to america in parliament once again attended that session of parliament in r.g.c. fatigues a symbolic show of support by the body in iran that represents public sentiment which were also likely to see close ranks behind the islamic revolutionary guard corps as we move forward following this designation of the group as a terrorist organization by the united states. united nations has postponed a national conference in libya this sunday because of ongoing fighting in the capital tripoli the conference was going to explore the possibility of elections as a way out of the country's year long conflict this comes as forces loyal to the libyan warlord who have to have carried out another restaurant this time targeting
