so the law said like. a little more than a year ago and that gave rise to the current prime minister as a compromise candidate their current prime minister was not a candidate for parliament he doesn't control the party in parliament but he was a compromise candidate so my fear is that a new set of elections while possible under the iraqi constitution under iraqi law . would result in a substantially different enough different parliament than the one that we have and it's extreme and and elections in iraq are a rather difficult to organize so it's difficult to see new elections on a short term basis to deal with what is in fact already a crisis of the country ok so what can be done or should be done issues and in the short term obviously it's a much more systemic issue clearly but what would you like to see done in the media sapient people people are dying people are well to be exact people are being killed
by the security forces of their own government people are dying something that is in the passive voice. with 'd all respect it fails to to precisely put the ball where it's real or peaceable demonstrators are being killed by their own security forces what i would have liked the prime minister to have done when he 1st spoke to the country i think on thursday night is to have. called for an investigation into who ordered the use of live ammunition against protesters in baghdad and other cities. to order an investigation on who carried out those orders. and to promise. that those who gave such orders would immediately be placed. he should also have given orders that live ammunition should
not be used against demonstrators. and that he should have. sought to speak to some representatives of the demonstrators whether it's too late for all that now are conseco but but that is the direction that the government should have gone to in the 1st instance we may be past that point now it's difficult to see how to resolve the impasse so it seems like these demonstrations are going to die down any time soon do you see the protesters at some point getting something that they want to make me think about so many protests that have happened recently be at hong kong or wherever and at some point the government does give in at least a little can you see that happening here. well i hope so i mean i hope that there's a there's 'd a there's a peaceable rational outcome from all of the fear is that
the political class is so disconnected from the rest of the country that it may believe that we've had demonstrations before so the political class may be gambling that this is these will just peter out as they happened prior years. the on the other hand. the number of casualties is mounting such a rate that battered so may become an impetus for the demonstrators to continue to go to the streets so you've got to sort of competing forces one against the other and when you're going through it as we are now it's difficult to tell whether we are you know in the one scenario where they'll just peter out again and it will be back to business as usual for ready the political elite or whether in fact this is gaining a life of its own that will come to threaten the very political system as as you suggested you don't know that when you're going through the process and that's what
makes time such as this very fraught and. and really demands a response from the prime minister that's very different to his credit let me say the president has reminded the security forces that their 1st mission is in fact to protect the rights of demonstrators peaceably to demonstrate obviously today the security forces have not taken that admonition from the president and vice i'll study thank you so much for your and cite your expertise on this a patient at my pleasure thank you. and there have been more protests in hong kong on saturday but smaller than any recent days hundreds of people are demonstrating against a ban on face masks despite their march being cancelled by its organizers it was called off after hong kong's rail network was closed because of what authorities call malicious vandalism on friday crowds set fire to metro stations during rallies
against the ban on kong's leader kerry lamb has out to crack down on the violence old kollek it didn't why ling held the rights as extreme acts made hong kong enjoy a dark day last night it is made hong kong paralyzed everyone is worried even scanned the hong kong government has the greatest a temptation to suppress violence i appeal to everyone to support the government to stop violence in a legal way schuyler has the latest from hong kong a march and some sporadic protests here in hong kong on saturday much less than what we've seen over the last 48 hours and much less than we've seen in previous weekends and peaceful for the most part on saturday that's what we saw a very different picture on friday night and part of the violence that took place on friday night after this mass ban was announced for the m.t.r. train systems they were shut down and that really kind of crippled this city what this thing through the malls most major malls will close as you can see small shops also shuttered that because they anticipated there to be violence on saturday but
it didn't materialize because protest leaders canceled all the events also on saturday kerry lamb the chief executive of hong kong issued a video statement where she looked at the violence on friday night as justification for this mass spend she also said it was a very dark day here in hong kong protest leaders when they said things were going to be canceled on saturday pointed to sunday it's going to be a big day they hope they're planning a rally and a march that they say hopefully will peaceful but will be have very large numbers compared to what we've seen over the last couple of days but obviously the police with this new law emergency law in place they will be looking to crack down on any illegal activity. the news hour including why donald trump's warning if you want to move to the u.s. you'd better have money for health care more on the new rules for immigrants. conservative and religious groups will take to the streets in france they're bracing for more protests on sunday as conservative and religious groups protest

convinced of that right this is this is this is the this is this is what's this is what's wrong when the world doesn't focus on the things that are right the things that matter the things that impact real people's lives and instead you get caught up in some silly gotcha game you see that's not that's not healthy that doesn't help democracies fleurs it doesn't help grow economies what it does is it destroys people's belief that the people who have this charge right as a reporter as a journalist the people who have this charge aren't really focused on the things that matter to people like i was like i was on the phone call i was i'm on almost every phone call with the president with every world leader the president has every right to have these set of conversations so pompei i was in greece decided defense agreement that will see an american base established near the turkish border and the secretary of state warned turkey against any illegal drilling in the east mediterranean sea reports from athens. the revised defense
