12:00 am
and it's on the ballot paper $24.00 running off to 2 of them dropped out on people really want their boat to make a difference they don't want any more political rhetoric they've been telling us they want it can to that really will make it change or for that of now they're also national and international observers here of making sure that everything is going to planned that there are no for organ and issues in these elections but certainly the main messages this people won't tell you that yes in terms of freedom of expression and terms of a fledging democracy there has been improvement since 2011 but there are real issues that need to be addressed and that something that they hope their vote is going to change stephanie decca in tunis stay and knowledge speak to leo a seabird who is d. tunisia country manager at the united states institute of p.c.'s via skype from gin is very good to have you with as so to nations voting in what is a very unpredictable election but not with a lot of enthusiasm it shames with turn out a just 16 percent according to the latest numbers where getting to what extent do
12:01 am
you thing to nations have become disillusioned with democracy and what difference do you see the selection wreaking that's a great question certainly the case that tunisians are frustrated with the pace of democracy with what many see as a lack of progress and inability to deliver on important economic reforms but that doesn't necessarily mean that tunisians have given up on democracy there are still many people turning out to vote the day is not over the people that i did speak with and see at polling centers around the capital were treating this as an emotional an important day and another step forward for tunisians democracy so you know we'll wait to see what the turnout final turnout numbers are but i think tunisians have not yet given up there but they certainly are frustrated 4 years into there's been a clear divide between secularists and islamists is that still the case today and
12:02 am
you know no matter who wins this election what do you think will be the key challenges for the next president and the next government. great question that's that's one of the most fascinating parts of this race is that in 2014 the dynamics were exactly as you categorize them you have kind of a rod secular against the one islamist friendly party and the other after 2014 those 2 parties came together in a governing coalition and so those dividing lines at the political level have disappeared to a certain extent and this race the dynamics are entirely different you have 5 different kind of viable candidates let's say 2 of them come from the kind of need it you know secular if you want to call it camp one of them comes from another this is the islamics camp this is the 1st time they've run a presidential candidate in history you also have an old regime figure whose
12:03 am
message is kind of restoring the power and practices of the state prior to the uprisings in 2011. so the dynamics are kind of completely different this year different dynamics and to nature of course neal one prays as the only democracy to emerge from the arab spring uprisings that actually began in tunisia but it hasn't been easy as we've seen over the last few years what do you think needs to happen now what should be the priority for the next leader to strengthen the democratic ideals of the country. well you know head 1st on the minds of most tunisians according to polling and just you know living here and speaking with people is of course as you stated the economy and then security so these are the priorities we've seen the value of the currency depreciate and we've seen prices go up and this has led to a sense that there is a declining middle class and this is one of the most challenging and alarming
12:04 am
things for most tunisians is to maintain what has made tunisia special in the region which is a strong middle class a highly educated population and a kind of comfortable way of life for many and as this is declining we're seeing other candidates such as new bill carter we who is leading a kind of a populist campaign focusing on poverty focusing on alleviating poverty gaining a lot of traction the other kind of key issue after this election will be forming a government that's able to do that so this is only the 1st round of a presidential election well then have parliamentary elections on october 6th and then a likely 2nd round and final round of the presidential election after that forming a government that's capable of addressing these challenges of the tunisians next big test thank you very much for speaking to us neil sieberg from the united states peace institute joining us now from tunis thank you very much for your time thank

a rescue ship arrived has been given permission to dock in an italian port on the other side of the world indonesia is struggling with refugees escaping conflict poverty in africa the middle east and elsewhere in asia they have no idea if they'll ever find another home al-jazeera is ready to mohamed will report on that from jakarta very shortly right after paul brennan looks at the new italian government's approach to refugees. the news brought tangible relief to ocean viking after nearly a week in limbo just heard. this side place of safety. i am the one other thing. that sprang to spontaneous celebration among the rescued migrants in what it is we're very happy about the news this is amazing we're going to arrive in
12:09 am
a. playschool people understand and listen to us if they're happy to listen that we have to some backing in many. italy's new prime minister decepticon tech has been in power just a week and conti center left coalition government supports a more humane approach than the hardline closed ports policy of the previous interior minister matteo salvia but ministers insist that does not mean it's only now has an open door policy. i believe there's a big misunderstanding about the safe ports given to ocean viking it was assigned to ports simply because the e.u. stuck to our request to take the majority of the microbes it must be clear that our aim is to ensure that those who arrive in italy or redistributed to other european countries that hasn't stopped salvini from criticizing we have only part of the redistributions in europe are just words because i am still waiting for the other european countries to take a few 1000 of those that they have already promised to take so this is
12:10 am
a surrender obviously one of contest promises to europe was that it really would return to being a refugee camp. back on board the migrants are already planning where they might be sent germany has promised to take 25 percent of any refugees rescued in the mediterranean but the rest of the distribution is less clear the subject will certainly come up when e.u. interior ministers meet in malta on september 23rd. al-jazeera. they came to indonesia in hope they could start a new life in australia new zealand canada but many say they're now stranded. fled the war in afghanistan and 2015 he and his family live in this makeshift shelter without electricity basic sanitation and little food. don't have come here my wife has 3. she

12:12 am
a signatory to the un refugee convention which means it only acts as a transit country but the australian government has tightened its borders to refugees from indonesia and cut its international funding to migrants the un refugee agency says chances for resettlement on limits. direct assistance isn't going to be the answer because everyone needs to be able to have the tools to take care of themselves and this is why we're working with the government the government of indonesia here to try to find ways under the indonesian laws for refugees to have the ability to take care of themselves so they don't always have to depend on handouts rights groups saying no single group is responsible for the backlog what i think is very important in order to. bring all the parties together civil society business sectors and also government agencies as

12:14 am
areas. but in this election i'm an order isn't just taking on what he calls netanyahu is racist campaign he's confronting a long held to do within palestinian israeli politics saying he would be prepared to be the 1st leader to take his grouping of mainly palestinian parties into israeli coalition government albeit with conditions that make it unlikely in the near future that you know that. we have a great influence on who will form the government if you put aside the arab vote netanyahu will be the paying him if you include the arab vote then there are other scenarios. other members of his alliance have distanced themselves from his message but a recent poll suggests nearly 80 percent of palestinian israelis are in favor of either joining a coalition government or supporting one within the knesset nobody ever expected an arab politician to say it and the reason is for all sorts of historic internal debates among the arab palestinian citizens and israel there's been a very ambivalent feeling to what extent the parties should legitimize the israeli
12:15 am
government to what extent being part of the israeli government puts them in a position where they would have to give up on very significant principles in april's elections the turnout among palestinian israelis was down to a new low 50 percent so with this idea of more active political engagement lift that number cut to egypt you did that voting is a very positive step people here don't do it and if you don't vote our vote goes to rival parties but i am against arab parties joining an israeli government. it's good if they join a left wing government not a right wing races government that works against arabs the palestinian citizens of israel there is a level of support for the idea of engaging in coalition government in the future but the palestinian israeli politicians they say the vital thing is that their electorate comes out and votes in greater numbers than they have before to have any chance of bringing down the administration of benjamin netanyahu netanyahu is him so if using or days starts to warn voters of the suppose
12:16 am
a danger in supporting the main opposition led by benny gantz and yeah i like pete will be me at the head of the likud or will be the pig and guns at the head of a leftist government that will include a move to be and i mean as minister of their government those politicians say no when you know who is trying to diligent him eyes palestinian israelis in gauge meant in national politics the question is whether this time it might inspire them instead to engage more are a force that al-jazeera israel. still ahead on this al-jazeera news ally they say they can talk to be then cows after centuries living in kenya smile for its navvies tribes fear being wiped out by the classroom on wheels in mexico how few children are getting an education while many other u.s. economy is miss out and where this former rugby captain is blackmailed into revealing news on his health. peter we'll have that story coming up.

a reminder of our top stories iran is accusing the us of deceit up to washington blame tehran for jonah tax on 2 oil facilities in saudi arabia yemen 2 with the rebels say they were responsible for saturday's explosions which knocked out more than half of the kingdom's entire output there's been no turnout at the polls aimed to michelle with just over an hour left for voters to choose their 2nd president since the 27 arab spring 24 candidates in their. army and police in hong kong have used tear gas and water cannon to break up the latest on tiger government protests tens of thousands of people have been marching in the city in defiance of a police ban and they continuing their push for political reform. more now on our top story of the attacks on 2 major oil facilities in saudi arabia joining us now is mona share talking who is an international oil and energy consultant and former research officer at opec his live from tehran the markets close for the weekend obviously what impact do you think these attacks will have when they open on monday
12:21 am
on oil prices in the short term and in the long term. well definitely it would have an impact my 1st response yesterday was that the market where the market is soft the prospect of demand global demand and economies weak and there is enough supply by the window or the magnitude came out of our $56000000.00 barrels per day out of $100.00 we know about it it is a huge quantity now impact on the actual market depends on the perceptions and this quantity i mention 56 out of $100.00 instead of a few 100000 barrels per day is large quantity makes and in major is 2nd logical compact so all the traders and others would have a kneejerk reaction to prices would go up how much i don't know of course. it is always happened when there is something happening in the one market that before any
12:22 am
actual disruption of supply affects the actual receivers and customers you see it takes about several weeks for the tankers which are not going to be delayed to show themselves as a shortage in japan or in the us or europe but the psychological the news makes its impact now now for 40 to how long to continue depends on the saudi installations how much. damage now allowing you to pay for them to replace it tell us a bit more about only if their fans ventilation theory this is significant yes yes the facility in question here the. fed to be or how many oil fields. operate as if they feel. they feel is an excellent right or entry but at the same location there is a huge processing plant which is the heart of the saudi oil facilities crude oil comes gas comes they separate them and so on reduce the pressure and so is a major oil production processing center. itself as well as the other or what the
12:23 am
saudis are going to engineer emanuel may have that are seen as weight right medium grade or if you would the saudis have had a contingency plan in place in case of disposal and that is for a city. your question is really depends if it comes to the norwan expectation of a huge installation like soda or ankle 10 medium various production should have enough inventory as any shop a grocer would have inventory in it's a storage to supply and give its customers so that if we are on call we also have that we don't know several 100100 1000000 barrels of oil are there apparently have a bolt smoothly to come and go on to the loading busses if that is the case it's probably again it is a smooth operation if they are successful to control this and use the excess capacity this fear of war loom which is in place now there is if you talk about so
12:24 am
that if you as usual it is on the ground right surface ones are left with several 100. 1000000 barrels but there is also this strategy but 2 arms every shot international within the international energy agency the industrialized countries and big can always come out and out the many 304050 years you are ready for major disruptions ok on whether they would use this as you put your own deserves japan and so on or unitas is right that is an order of policy decision that the us might decide to have in a coronation with saudi and let me ask you manish attack in who benefits so from a destruction and wrong destruction of saudi oil exports which country benefits from this the americans. well all the oil producers would benefit the united states or oil companies would benefit and all the other
12:25 am
oil companies and exporters would benefit of but the whole global de conna me the global economy of course would suffer you see the good price a high price war is good for the sellers but in the medium long term is bad for the exporters because that would cause the damage to the economy and in the medium long term reaction less demand and so on so but in order to your question immediately for the next few weeks if the price goes up which would we do expect of course the sellers of oil the coal companies and the exporters national road companies all that they would benefit they would have higher revenue there thank you so much for speaking to us our it is again that gain is the financial gain on a temporary basis yes with pleasure thank you so much money back in international oil and then in c. consultant in tehran thank you it wouldn't make you so much for your time we appreciate it now the united nations secretary general hopes hurricane survivors in the bahamas will get the how they need from the international community antonio
12:26 am
terris was visibly shaken as he saw the destruction to the abaco island from hurricane dorian a category 5 super storm to wastdale is known to have killed at least 50 people around 1300 others remain missing there is it's a community the idea that middle income countries should not be supported it's a wrong idea especially with middle income countries have high levels of vulnerability to external shocks they're not responsible. and so i hope that the international community will be able now obviously is the moment of steel rescue some situations but essentially humanitarian aid but then there will be reconstruction building resilience recovery and these will you require massive investment from the government from the people. there was some good news still as a tropical storm missed the bahamas as alan fischer reports from the capital nassau that's given island as a chance to clothe and feed others who have lost everything. there the everyday
12:27 am
things that we rebuild ordinary lives ripped apart their t. shirts and shorts and dresses and toiletries all gathered by the people in ny so for those who lost everything in the hurricane literally we've had thousands of people to come in from the island with nothing but the clothes on their backs some not even with shoes and so they lost everything and so this set up is just to be there to help people regain some kind of dignity and you know and then humanity and just a good feeling about themselves and to be independent again. it started as a call to a few people went vital and suddenly it became a major operation the next step is distribution was no organization no grouping it was just a message sent out and the people responded well locals are playing their part the international community is doing what it can it's assessing the damage caused great bahama and abaco and how we can even begin to repair rebuild and recall behind this
12:28 am
story is with a huge international operation is being coordinated there are so many agencies so much what going on they don't want to let the cameras in this is by far and away the biggest disaster ever to hit the bahamas the rebuilding will take months it will take years and the cost will be millions it will be billions we're trying to get information from areas that have compromised communication systems so we're really working with a coalition of partners to be able to collect that data and analyze that so that decision makers feel confident in their next steps as they plan towards mid-term and long term recovering. the displaced hundreds will start to collect donations on monday taking what they need giving them something that says things are going to get better giving them hope. alan fischer al-jazeera the bahamas
