5:19 pm
decide when monitoring events for us and nicholas this is always going to be a hard fought election and perhaps the initial results are quite surprising. they are indeed for the people standing here right behind me we're at the headquarters of the historic 1st political party in the country and their candidate domingo should know a spirit who was the frontrunner for this election well they hoped that this would be that they would win this election if he were to over 50 percent of the vote it didn't happen and so many people here are disappointed there's a point particularly because there was a lot of money spent in this campaign and this by this country having empty coffers these campaigns were flamboyant extravagant caravans traveling throughout the country so many here wondering why this hasn't paid off well perhaps the answer lies with the his archrival tomorrow. he calls himself the general of the
5:20 pm
people and he has accused domingo she wears para who wears a fedora hat of being el chapo of being a profiting from the drug trade of course going to be a country on the edge of west africa is used by latin american drug traffickers to funnel cocaine to europe in the last 5 years under the presidency of george zimmerman of us 2222 tons of cocaine worth billions of dollars in a country where most people live live on less than $2.00 a month. has discovered by law enforcement so yes there's a lot at stake in this election so indeed it with just what 4 weeks now before the run of how do you think the election campaign is going to proceed is it going to be tough mean or bad or. well i says i spoke to. him he said he's going to try to attract try

monitor what will be a very exciting 4 weeks to that next vote nicholas hytner. opposition leader john we call been says that he has proof that the united kingdom's health system is to sail in trade talks with the u.s. open so has a 451 page document is evidence prime minister boris johnson discussed offering the u.s. census to the n.h.s. johnson has previously denied the allegation labor has promised to safeguard the n.h.s. if it wins next month's election. now we know the truth is when johnson say's gets dong it's a fraud on the british people this is the reality yes above down to go see a sions n.h.s. is up for sale this election is now a fight for the survival of on national health service. and how small.
