5:02 pm
those who left their posts announced the move accusing police of staging a coup a latin america to see newman joins us live from santiago in neighboring chile so obviously this is what the protesters have been pushing for but is it still a surprise that morales appears to have given. rachelle i'm rather surprised that he gave in that quickly because he had said that after the event depending on the results of the organization of american states audit he would allow for a 2nd round a knock off round he had not spoken about a brand new election and this is what his opponents were demanding nothing short of that and not only this the oas also recommended that there a new electoral board a new electoral tribunal be named clearly indicating that the current one is was not transparent and could not be trusted and president morales says that that is going to happen as well so he was under tremendous amount of pressure he also had
5:03 pm
spoken of you we've just heard him he thought he needed to protect property and families overnight his own sister's house had been attacked and set on fire so things were wherry very quickly spiraling out of control and so he did his face was very very stern but is he's had to take this about face probably against his his wishes but he's done it and hopefully this will help defuse a very serious crisis so any indication when we're going to hear how this new election is supposed to happen what's going to make this different than the 1st time. with a new election with the aged the new government was supposed to be sworn in in january when the new election will be is not clear presumably it will be fairly quickly and i think what could be contentious is. the composition of this new electoral board that's something that's going to have to be debated and negotiated
5:04 pm
with the opposition if this call for calm and peace that president what alice is calling for is going to happen is going to be needed all right we'll see a new man are one american or with the latest and we see it thank you thank you. they rocky government says a security crackdown is not the solution to curb weeks of protests that have led to the death of over $300.00 demonstrators but it's warned of tough punishment for anyone using extreme violence that includes security forces using live ammunition clashes continue in the capital baghdad between demonstrators and security forces the government to struggle to contain mass protests over corruption access to basic services and iraq's political system for more now let's go live to baghdad our correspondent mohammed jam jim is there so what else is there is the government saying about about calming things down mohamed. well richard let me start with that new death toll that you mentioned just a moment ago we just received confirmation of this in the past 10 minutes or so
5:05 pm
from the to shut assata he's a member of parliament and he's the head of the parliamentary committee of human rights and mr assad had told us that the latest figures as far as the death toll here since october 1st 319 people have been killed due to violence he said that most of those killed have been anti-government protesters some of those killed have been security forces certainly that is a startling update because up until now they're up the government has only been saying that somewhere around 250 protesters and security forces have been killed in fact many activists we speak with on the ground here believe that the death toll may actually be higher but according to mr assad he it is now 301000 also in the past couple of hours there was a statement that was issued by the office of the president here president but him saga in which as you mentioned he stated that a security crackdown essentially is not the way to end these protests he went on to
5:06 pm
say that an electoral reform law would soon be announced that they were working on it he also went on to say that the executive and judicial authorities have begun legal action to prosecute those accused of corruption and he mentioned in that statement that security forces have been told repeatedly not to use live ammunition when they are at protest sites now beyond that we also got a tweet that was pretty substantial in the last couple of hours from the most of those so that his head of the southers bloc he's a very popular shiite cleric here and of his bloc is the biggest bloc in parliament he issued a statement via twitter in which he said that he continues to stand firmly with the protesters here that was in response to these reports that were emerging yesterday that perhaps some deal had been made between various political factions to continue to stand behind the current government and try to put an end to the protests may. people were wondering where mr russell that would would come down when it comes to these reports what his response would be there had been some rumors that perhaps he
5:07 pm
had been a part of this agreement as well he today has said that he is not part of that agreement so he is still standing very much on the side of the protesters as you mentioned it's been a tense day right now it's a little bit calmer there have been clashes the news yesterday was that on saturday 4 people in baghdad for protesters were killed as a result of violence and many people here worry that it is going to continue to be violent until the government really responds to the demands of these protesters that continue to come out day after day richelle all right jim with the latest there from baghdad mohammed thank you. prominent opposition figure comes soca has been released in cambodia 2 years after he was charged with treason so it is the co-founder of the bank cambodia national rescue party which was dissolved ahead of elections last year her minister who says ruling party won most of the seats let's focus free for now the charges against him they remain and he's banned from politics and can't leave the country and other key opposition voice and raincy
5:08 pm
arrived in malaysia on saturday had left cambodia 4 years ago after facing a prison sentence on defamation charges cambodian government says he's welcome back but warns he could face several legal cases. international pressure east building on one side and that he showed that he would open. the door open the way for me to return to cambodia but this time he said it to be different i mean. mall positive more favorable while powerful because. from inside the country become again people are. still increasing the pressure on. raincy have been battling longtime leader who listen he's been in power since 1985 and is on the world's longest serving prime minister's rights groups and political opponents say he's repeatedly stifle dissent
5:09 pm
when has the developments from bangkok. this would appear to be a tactical move by the government in cambodia on 2 fronts one is that we know sam rainsy the acting leader of the cambodian national rescue party arrived back in the region on saturday flying into kuala lumpur the malaysian capital still vowing to return from exile to cambodia to lead an uprising against the government this would appear to be a move by the government in cambodia to take the wind out of the sails of sam rainsy and to call into question the relevance of any plans returned by him the other thing is the european union has been investigating the decline in democracy and human rights in cambodia and is threatening to withdraw or cambodia's tariff free status for its goods that are exported to the european union it delivers its report to the government of cambodia on choose day one of the key demands of the
5:10 pm
e.u. is that kim should be released from house arrest and the charges against him should be dropped who've seen one of those steps taken by the government he has been released from house arrest but still some severe restrictions remaining on him and the case against camps a car still stands as polling is underway and spain's for election and for years the leftist pajamas party has vowed to help the incumbent socialist party leader public places said he will get assistance and hopes of forming a leftist coalition minister peter sanchez call for the vote after failing to form a new government however opinion poll suggests that this might not break the deadlock in the elections coming weeks of political tension and violent clashes between catalan separatists and police delamater is standing by live for us in barcelona 1st though let's go to china hall who is any spanish capital of madrid so gentle there seems to be maneuvering going on even as the polls are still open.
5:11 pm
yes the polls you don't open only a busy polling station here you can see one problem. spain hasn't voted with participation turnout may be a little lower this time than it was in april but still expected to be around the 70 percent the difficulty though is in trying to form a stable government for election this in just 4 years. stable government has become much rarer much more difficult since the economic crisis since the years of very polarizing austerity that followed the sort of put paid to the old system of politics where power was swapped from one big party on the left to one big party on the right there are now multiple parties on both sides including both extremes add to that the backdrop to this election the unfolding drama in catalonia over independence a crisis many voters see it as a direct threat to the unity of the state and so you've got this sort of very combustible politics in spain that makes it very hard for any one group to work with any other there hasn't been
5:12 pm
a majority governance since 2011 well the socialists and had their senses are expected according to the polls once again to win the greatest share of the vote as they did in april but without a majority that means there may be horse trading you mentioned it there if there can indeed be a coalition on the left they couldn't form one in april they may not have the numbers to form one now and mr sanchez has said he's looking towards a minority administration that would require at least the tacit approval of the people's party the conservative party on the right expected to do much better this time around they in turn will be looking further to their right to the far right vox party they don't want to be pushing any more support their way the votes party expected perhaps to become spain's 3rd largest political force so when you put all of these things together a question of can they form stable government this time the fall election in 4 years the answer is far from certain ok john hall will wrap up there and a trench on a thank you jonah mentioned catalonia let's go to how to delamater is live for us
5:13 pm
in barcelona to the issue of catalonia the cattle on separatists and has been a constant issue for the past year is that the it's an issue in this election explain how this is all playing out. and certainly many would tell you that it has been the dominant issue not only in this election but the election that happened earlier in the year in april and i think what people will be looking at later on when the 1st results come out is how well the dependence parties have fared in this election catalonia in children has $48.00 seats in the congress in madrid now it's a matter of seeing among those $48.00 seats how many will be given to the pro independence party now if they have a large showing in congress in madrid then they would at least it will solve the catalonian issue it won't solve. anything when it comes to these dream of
5:14 pm
independence that many have in this region but they could certainly use their number of seats to have an impact or maybe to block any kind of dealings or any kind of you know legislation at the national level in madrid but people here do not expect that anything will change when it comes to day old cause. any advance or any kind of you know breakthrough of this deadlock between the 2 sides madrid and barcelona on how to deal with this independence aspirations or that is something people are not betting on what they want to know is really who will come to power and how much would the catalan parties have of power or influence in madrid right how to tell me with the latest from barcelona how to thank you. still ahead on al-jazeera spread across hong kong on the 24th
