abstaining the prime minister wasted no time it in and seeing his plan b. we will not allow this promises to continue one way or another we must proceed straight to an election this house cannot any longer keep this country hostage millions of families and businesses cannot plan for the future labor leader jeremy corbin arrived in the chamber after the vote to respond i understand the bill will be tabled tomorrow we will obviously look can scrutinize that bill and we look forward to a clear definitive decision that no deal is absolutely off the table and there is no danger of this prime minister not sticking to his word the proposed legislation expected to be tabled on tuesday is a so-called one line bill amending the fixed term parliaments act it would stipulate that an election will take place on
a certain date the 12th of december since the prime minister and it requires just a simple majority of one vote to pass rather than the 2 thirds majority needed under the current law which would appear to offer a better chance of success after all the liberal democrats and the scottish national party have earlier announced a very similar plan they want an election on the 9th of december we are just focusing on getting a general election we'd have to do that with a bill to change the fixed term parliament which could happen this week triggering the election perhaps at the end of this week and then the election day taking place on the 9th of december little difference between the 9th and the 12th of december you might think but the earlier date coattails the. it's ability to push through its brakes it deals and allow students to vote before the end of the winter semester a crucial difference possibly then for opposition support. all that is certain now

. this is been a main talking point for republicans that the impeachment is a sham because house lawmakers have yet to take a formal vote authorizing the hearings in fact last week a group of republican lawmakers stormed a hearing room where a witness was giving evidence saying that it was being done in secret even though republicans were taking part in the process because the hearing wasn't out in the open they were in open to the public they were critical of that last week a federal judge actually refuted this claim and sided with democrats saying that they were well within their rights to hold these hearings that this had been done before prior to a formal vote on an impeachment but the administration is appealing that decision and nancy pelosi says that while it is a baseless excuse she's attempting to take that excuse away from the republicans and not give them reason to justify withholding documents and preventing witnesses
from cooperating now the white house may still try to claim that witnesses have immunity and don't have to testify democrats have been dealing with that by taking them to court and trying to get it resolved there but that's a process that's likely to take months to resolve so by changing their tactics democrats are saying that they are just going to use this as evidence of the administration trying to obstruct justice and bolster their case for impeachment rather than trying to fight to get the witnesses in front of them. the biggest protests in a generation show no sign of letting up in chile that's even after president sebastian pinera replaced a 3rd of his cabinet from response to days of demonstrations security forces clashed again with protesters as tens of thousands marched through the capital on monday how latin america and newman reports from santiago. they're the
biggest demonstrations in chile since the end of its military dictatorship 3 decades ago and like then the country is under the watch of human rights organizations oh they're arriving in chile to investigate charges of police brutality. in front of chile supreme court many protesters were black as a sign of mourning for those allegedly killed or seriously injured by soldiers and riot police during ongoing demonstrations were looking for someone to be responsible. and there's the next station to the president and to the. minister of interior who has their hands when i was here with the university of chile's human rights institute has received more than 600 complaints of abuse of force leading in some cases to blindness of pacific command we're talking specifically about attacks against totally peaceful demonstrators who had been shot with rubber and metal pellets directly to the face and who have been
gravely injured young people who are now permanently disabled. the list of demands on the street is expanding not just with calls for justice but also for the president to be held personally responsible for the alleged abuses of human rights this as president said r.c.m.p. as struggles to find new ways to diffuse the ongoing political upheaval here. just hours after lifting the state of emergency announced the biggest cabinet reshuffle of his presidency would play. 8 ministers including his cousin the interior minister who last week called protesters criminals. chile is not the same country it was 2 weeks ago chile has changed and the government also has to change to confront the new challenges of the new york times if they feel that. but the large number of protesters still on the streets suggest chile hasn't changed
president says that of authorities have committed abuses they'll be investigated and punished. but neither the cabinet overhaul nor the lifting of the state of emergency is likely to return calm to chile where protesters are already organizing new mass demonstrations for the entire week to see in human santiago. former catalan leader charles push tomorrow is appearing before a belgian court over a new spanish arrest warrant he's currently living in self exile in belgium to avoid prosecution for his role in catalonia is felled independence referendum spain considers that bid illegal 12 of his former colleagues were sentenced in spain earlier this month for their part in a 2017 vote the belgian court is expected to rule on whether to accept the spanish ones. south africa is experiencing what many farmers say is the driest

a local auction which are more frequent these days as farmers get rid of livestock that are a drain on their finances but the market is flooded and livestock prices are low another farmer says trying to survive the drought is almost impossible. if the rains don't come in puts pressure on us because we can't farm and can't provide. jobs the knock on effect is that people don't have money to spend in town businesses are suffering because no one is buying anything. the farming lobby group agree is say says at least $60000.00 agricultural workers in 3 provinces have lost their jobs and the industries lost millions of dollars the government is providing some relief to farmers battling the drought it's spending $2000000.00 to buy and distribute fodder to farmers to feed their animals but this is a short term plan and many say it's not enough water restrictions are being enforced in cities across south africa for the 1st time in years the water level in
the ball dam which supplies johannesburg and the capital pretoria has fallen to just under half full that's especially critical because south africans use 320 liters of water every day the global average is about 170 liters the situation is very serious however. it is not one that calls for. panic it is under control. there are levels of supply of water at an acceptable for the quantity and quality is essential for the future development of south africa the government is expected to announce new water conservation plans and how it's going to improve supply infrastructure but the concern to ensure taps don't run dry is clear with the government calling restrictions on water use the new normal for me to malaya northern cape province south africa. cancer hospital in occupied
