bar and this is al jazeera live from london also coming up the youngest leader is forced out of power after a corruption scandal causes a political avalanche in austria. fighting hunger in the middle of a civil war we hear from one yemeni mother who's struggling to feed a 10 children. plus the $1000000.00 yacht sand luxury cars seized from alton tina's corrupt elites the investigators bowing to pursue justice. half a 1000000000 europeans are facing a new political landscape for the 1st time in 4 decades the centrists alliances that have dominated the european parliament have failed to form a majority new political forces are on the rise with far right parties enjoying big
success in france italy and the u.k. but there's also been a surge in support for liberals and the greens as natasha butler reports from paris . the face of europe's parliament is changing the traditional power blocs of the center right and center left that have dominated for decades lost seats as populous greens and liberal surged for the 1st time in 40 years since the 1st elections in 1979 of the european parliament due to classical parties socialist and conservatives will no longer have a majority. nationalism and fears over immigration fueled gains for populist parties in france hungry and italy. vinnie's far right policy one more than 30 percent of the vote. in in not only is the league the 1st party in italy but marine le pen is the 1st party in france in the u.k. knowledge of the rajah's 1st so is city france england it's the sign of
a europe that is changing green parties in several countries celebrated their best e.u. election results highlighting concern among some voters of a climate change after ending divide people all across europe want to form a peaceful europe together we haven't just got a great result in germany but as it stands in ireland and the netherlands in austria all across europe the greens are strong. the election results reflect a growing political trend in the east 28 member states people are increasingly rejecting establishment traditional mainstream parties and supporting alternatives and voting for causes the center right european people's party remains the largest bloc in the e.u. parliament but with no majority it will be forced to seek support to form a pro e.u. coalition the center right and center left parties have scored badly they have both lost. they have both lost votes but we see
a 3rd party emerging which is the liberals at the moment so the liberal party if one includes the votes from across is likely to become the king made. in the next european parliament. the european project was created after world war 2 to ensure the rivalries between countries would never again result in conflict while these elections show that politically europe is more fragmented than ever pro e.u. parties still retain a majority suggesting that although some voters may be questioning the european union most still believe in it natasha butler al-jazeera paris or some of the most dramatic results came in the united kingdom where the traditional big 2 party suffered massive losses to reason may's ruling conservatives could only manage 5th place the worst results in their history and the opposition labor party didn't do much better it is of course inevitably or down to breakfast and a warning that lawrence lees flash report does contain flash photography. the
record of not being. alone reading there was only one winner in the british election nigel farage invigorated those voters who feel betrayed at grex it's not having happened his single issue brix it party won just over 30 percent of the vote most of it at the expense of the conservative party this is a vote that says no deal breaks it back on the table make it part of our negotiations because without that you've got no chance of getting a sensible free trade deal i want us as the bracks it body to be engaged in that but it's also a vote that says the 31st of october is the but next really big day in this process if we don't leave on that day then you can expect the exit party to repeat this kind of surprise in the next general and such was the collapse in support for the conservatives in the wake of sarees may's resignation that they came out with the
worst results in their history her negotiated breck's a deal is now dead the party by its own admission in an existential crisis the main opposition labor party suffered too because of jeremy coleman's continued prevarication over whether or not he supports this in the aftermath he gave an indication he might now be prepared to support a new referendum what this party does. it supports an agreement with the european union to prevent crushing out supports putting that proposal when agreed to a public act there was in-fighting that directly to a surge in support for the greens and liberal democrats the total vote for parties which supports not leaving the european union at all was over 40 percent so they could say they won as well the number of votes the fact that more people have supported remain parties if you count us as the lead remaining party and then greens and change u.k. add those votes together more people have supported us and supported the brics it
party the government has to listen there is one piece of common ground between the brics that party and its pro european opponents all of which outflank labor and the conservatives they're all demanding electoral reform the traditional 2 party system of politics in this country is now under enormous strain and i hope that this will be a sign to the conservatives and the labor party that there we need to have a proportional system and i truly believe when you look at those 2 parties there is more than one party sitting under the same umbrella and what they need to heal their own divisions it's be able to be true about who they are it's individual policies on the left and right of their own parties and if we had a proportional system that would give them the opportunity to do that while sitting still and labor or conservative and if it's to achieve. power all is now demanding to be part of any new brics in the go see asian he's pro european opponents are demanding another referendum the main part is
a lost traditional politics here is in meltdown. al-jazeera in london. austria is now without a leader after sebastian kurtz was forced to step down as chancellor following a vote of no confidence opposition parties joined forces to remove him from office over a corruption scandal that brought down his right wing government because his people's party still did well in the europe. elections and is expected to perform well in style elections in september so mccain has more from vienna. sebastian cordes might well be thinking what a difference a day makes on sunday he was a vote winner leading his party to its best performance in european elections for 20 years on monday he was here in the austrian parliament losing a vote of confidence and out of the job that he has held for the past 2 years his former coalition partners the freedom party the far right freedom party voting with the opponents of the social democrats to remove him and his party from office
remember that the far right freedom party themselves were forced from office just over a week ago following the scandal that ensued from the revelation that several of its leading members had been speaking to a russian lady recorded on video from 2 years ago on the spanish bond of it before in which they spoke about how the russian federation government could improve its influence in austrian politics the fallout from that precipitated there from office today they got their revenge in forcing the courts from office but he may have the last laugh his party won the european elections in austria on sunday and they are far ahead in the polls if there is if there is to be new elections in the next few weeks well then he would be in prime position to win those and find himself in the bizarre position of having perhaps to come back to this parliament with a new mandate and to seek a coalition with one or other of the parties is just voted him out and there's more political upheaval in rumania that's where the leader of the ruling social
democrats is starting a 3 and a half year jail sentence of the losing an appeal against a corruption conviction. that. protesters chanted go to jail as leave you drag mayor was driven to prison from his home in the capital bickering rest there is regarded as romania's most powerful man but he's barred from becoming prime minister off to a previous conviction the very breaking. in syria at least 9 people have been killed in government air strikes south of italy a number of people are also trapped under the rubble following the bombardment in the town of america and surrounding villages government troops have been pushing to take it live since last month's the region is the country's last major rebel stronghold for years 4 years of war have pushed yemen which was already one of the
