7:49 pm
announces as not be election after his body's defeat also coming up. we're not looking for regime change i just want to make that clear u.s. president donald trump changes his cheery again on iran he talks trade and security in japan plus. i'm of worthing in burnie and i'll be reporting on this country's efforts to get that precious stolen artifacts taken in the colonial era. voters across europe have dealt a blow to traditionally centrist politicians while smaller parties on the left and right have made gains the european parliamentary elections saw a turn out in record numbers to bolster radical alternatives including the greens and the far right the populist far right saw a surge in support by the liberals and the greens also added more seats in sons one
7:50 pm
of the most well known faces of the on time migration on current marine le pen came out just ahead of president in party mccall represented the center in the election it's only his deputy prime minister ahmed taylor salvini secure the largest win for the far right party became the biggest in the country and in the u.k. now. party won the most seats but probably main parties combined around one around the same level of support showing that britain remains deeply divided on leaving the european union lawrence he has the latest on that from london very clearly in the u.k. the european elections vote was a proxy 2nd referendum. on whether or not the u.k. should leave the european union and lo and behold it ended up being pretty much a draw between the new brics a party. that got a big exactly a 3rd of the vote. it's the much much smaller ukraine dependence party very right
7:51 pm
wing nowadays about 35 percent all the overtly pro remain parties that's 5 of them with their share of the vote becomes more or less exactly the same and so the country is exactly as split as it was the biggest story though was the complete meltdown in support for the supposedly 2 biggest party the conservatives the main opposition labor party the conservatives came back with the worst showing in 100 years they didn't come in the polls anywhere in the whole of the country so they're now in a state of extension crisis by their own admission and the labor party vote collapse as well because jeremy called in their leader has been widely accused of being far too ambiguous on whether or not his party should support leaving the european union or staying in it and so the labor vote haemorrhage the way the parties like the greens and the centrist liberal democrats in turn and has the latest from paris where marina penn's national rally party has gained ground. well this was neither
7:52 pm
a big victory for the far right party of marine le pen nor was it a big defeat for the pro e.u. centrist party of about all my call there was less than a percentage point in it and in fact the far right party polled pretty much what it did in 2014 during the last european union election and i think what it shows is the fact that the far right in france has this very strong core support of bates supporter base but it's often fails to widen its appeal and this in a year where emanuel mark karr has really struggled his popularity has plummeted he has been affected by the so-called yellow vest crisis over social inequality so many people going into this election thought of all right we'll be able to capitalize on that and do much better than it did i think for the french president his party would probably be quite relieved they certainly were not strongly defeated the french president now is able to send any peace to the parliament that
7:53 pm
gives him a leverage there it's the 1st time that is relatively new parties taking part of these e.u. elections and i think what the overall the result in france confirms is that the far right is officially the main opposition here in france we saw as elsewhere in europe the weakening of the establishment parties the conservatives and socialists really polled very badly indeed and again reflecting the trend in europe we saw the rise of the greens who came 3rd or less last week to david chaytor who's at european union headquarters in brussels david what are the overall conclusions then from these results. well i think the best phrase would be to say the earth has moved but not by much the they were trying to use on the political scene as far as the far right were concerned but not a large earthquake they perhaps might be disappointed by their showing the open for
7:54 pm
much stronger results but nevertheless what's happened in italy what's happened in france is that the insurgent parties within the european union do now have the mentum with them and this is going to complicate the scene within the european parliament now we've seen the erosion of the center left of center right the traditional jew up lee who held the stability of the european union's parliament together they have they have lost they've got they've got a a leech of support from them so it's going to be more complicated now as far as the european parliament is concerned the groupings will be organize of the next few days and weeks there will be a new alliances and i think getting through policies and getting through any legislation will be more difficult now because it's not simply going to be a case of it being ordered by paris or berlin it's going to have to be spread across the capitals much more efficiently than it was before says the end if you
7:55 pm
like of the dominance of the traditional axis within the european union the parliament and every decision that's made now every piece of legislation that's taken is going to require long and complex negotiations so you could say that's a victory for democracy at least but it does mean that politics in europe are getting even more complicated thank you for that david reporting there live from brussels meanwhile greece is headed to snap elections after the ruling party suffered major losses in the european parliamentary elections prime minister alexis tsipras says he will request the any dissolution. of parliament after the regional elections on june the 2nd his left wing syriza party which has been in power for 4 years lost to the conservative new democracy party has asked voters for a new mandates to johnson has more from athens. the clear win for conservative new democracy
7:56 pm
a distance of 5 points from the ruling cities is due to many factors but mostly the economy i had promised to take greece out of austerity policies half way through this 8 year period of austerity and recession that greece is now just emerging from and did not do so back in 2015 it began to do so this year several years late much later that it promised a new democracy has reaped the benefits of promising lower taxes for productive activity lower taxes for businesses most of it most of which are family small businesses in greece from 29 to 20 percent over 2 years new democracy promises to create the conditions for 4 percent growth in the next 3 or 4 years and that is more than double the current recent growth promises to create 700000 new jobs over 5 years and promises to bring back many of the greeks who left for other job
7:57 pm
markets in developed economies in the west because their skills simply weren't in demand any more in this collapse in economy that has lost 25 percent of its value in 8 years and the european elections have given a boost to austria as chancellor sebastian carries after a corruption scandal brought down his coalition government his people spotty want to run 34 percent of the vote losing just one seat at kerry says facing a no confidence or tinpot amends later on monday dominic cain has the latest from vienna. the no confidence vote debate being held in the austrian parliament today centers around the at the activities of mr cook says former cabinet departments the far right freedom party whose leadership was deeply implicated in a scandal which erupted in recent days the point is they are all gone from cabinet only one of the from the far right freedom party's leaders in. involved in cabinet still the foreign minister but the point here is we know that this parliament will
7:58 pm
only go until the middle of september at the latest because elections have already been called for then this is about trying to precipitate earlier elections but it's worth making the point that perhaps none of the parties would really the main parties would really like there to be an election right now perhaps only missed the courts because opinion polls clearly show he and his party dominate austrian politics in the european elections that took place on sunday got around 35 percent of the vote the other parties that might challenge were nowhere near as popular so from their perspective if they win the vote today and force mr cortes out well that might be a pyrrhic victory because if an early election comes they might well lose it in other world news donald trump says he is not seeking regime change in iran on the 3rd day of his visit to japan the u.s. president reiterated his willingness to have talks with the iranian leaders and do a deal on nuclear weapons and i'm not looking that hurt iran
7:59 pm
a lot i'm looking to have iran say no nuclear weapons we have enough problems in this world right now with nuclear weapons no nuclear weapons for and i think will make a deal i think are rare and again i think iran has tremendous economic potential and i look forward to letting them get back to the stage where they can show that i think iran i know so many people from iran these are great people it has to cheers to be a great country with the same leadership we're not looking for regime change i just want to make that clear and here now with reaction from tehran. a lot of what u.s. president donald trump said today are these are points that his administration has made in the past we heard several weeks ago from u.s. secretary of state my comp saying that they're not looking for regime change they're looking for a change of behavior so while there is nothing new what was extraordinary is that he said these things so publicly and in his own voice so certainly a sign that there is softening rather rhetoric from the american president however
8:00 pm
iranian leadership here is likely to see this as insincere they consider u.s. president donald trump not trustworthy pulling out of the 2050 nuclear deal was a sign to the iranian government that the united states isn't serious about any sort of negotiated solution to tensions with iran we spoke to one expert who said that if the united states is hopeful for talks the fact is that when it comes to making war or peace that still is power that rests with the ron supreme leader and 2 of the company has said that there will be no talks especially not with this administration this expert who is a former commander of the islamic revolutionary guard corps suggested that if there was any possibility even the finish of possibility of any sort of negotiation the 1st step the united states would have to take is returning to the nuclear deal to the joint comprehensive plan of action before any other diplomacy could go forward i said ahead on i'll just they are having a new leader in zimbabwe.
