european parliament with 21 even ember states taking part on the final day of voting the traditionally powerful political center is seeing support slave away with right wing populists as well as pro e.u. greens making gains across the bloc. u.s. president donald trump spent his 2nd day in tokyo golfing with japanese prime minister shinzo abbey and watching similar wrestling the spite the friendly atmosphere there are tough talks ahead on trade and on differences over the threat posed by north korea. that has been fresh fighting owed say the disputed yemeni city of ties militias allied to the internationally recognized government fired on positions held by hutu rebels pro-government forces claim they are advancing but say at least 10 of their fighters have been killed in recent days.
thousands of kurdish prisoners in turkey have ended a mass hunger strike they were protesting prison conditions for the kurdish leader abdul. supporters celebrated the end of the strike the government lifted a ban on lawyers visiting a vigil and who is serving a life sentence. well the votes are in and the ballots are being counted more than 400000000 people in 28 countries were eligible to vote in the biggest democratic exercise in the western world from france to poland and right across the continent from britain to italy the forces of populism and euro skepticism are presenting the e.u. with fresh challenges here watching special coverage of the european elections i'm sumi so muskaan there in berlin and this is the day.
the 1st piece of news from today is that european democracy is a long hard road to leave. most speechless we had hard hopes. but this is fantastic for me these are swallowed cuteness this election result is not the result the we. the people expect of ourselves give a shit if we're going to brussels to repair the e.u. . trouble to ignore people's desire for more protection freedom and sovereignty win this election has a climate protection election this election was an election for democracy. for voters across europe have made their voices heard with the big turnout traditional center parties in germany france and elsewhere have been watching their support erode while the environmentalist greens have been surging taking 2nd place
in germany meanwhile right wing populist parties are projected to have made strong gains winning in france italy poland and hungary. these boxes hold the voice of europe. the future of more than 500000000 people marked on pieces of paper. once counting had begun it soon became clear the voters had spoken out against the solid center of european politics. the sheer instant northeast the best news today is that european democracy is alive with the mccarthy leapt morton and today we saw a clear increase in voter turnout mean. that democracy gave german mainstream parties their worst ever results. i that democracy delighted much of the european far right. in
france marine le pen again beat the french president's party. hungary's viktor orban spelled it out the migration issue by itself and the reaction of the people only real or reorganize the 4 to the spectrum with the traditional party families will not play the same role in the future as they have done in recent years i also own traditional jubilant greens resurgence in germany. become a big hitter in the european parliament. and our family ah. we achieved this because 90 many people took to the streets for climate protection because many many young people were ready to fight for climate protection in schools universities in sports halls. please they
are here these results are the votes of those people who are active on the net and those who are active in companies and small communities also in chambers of trade who said go and vote this is our election that is change europe together and that. yellow vests protestors in brussels on sunday they say the e.u. is undemocratic. everyone wants to change europe. the fight over which way will be played out in parliament and on the streets. let's go right to proselyte our bureau chief max hoffman is standing by for us there he's been covering the vote for us max you could say it's been a pretty underwhelming result for the established parties in this vote how has that gone down in brussels. for the established parties and surprisingly that didn't go down too well for others like the greens for example
and also certain right wing populist parties like from italy or the awesome will gnaw not from france they were rather enthusiastic but even those that lost seats stressed the fact they thought it was positive that voter turnout had increased by about 7 percent compared to the last european election so winners and losers as with every election this is definitely a fragmented parliament max you could say so what's going to be the kingmakers in brussels after this vote you know where the chips going to fall in the parliament. a looks like at the moment that you would need at least 3 groups to build a majority and then only if the social democrats and the conservative european peoples party continue to work together so it would be thinkable for example that the social democrats and the p.p.p. so the conservatives would work together with the liberals which is. call the french president has his fingers in that and that would probably be enough but also
you could think about a coalition with the greens or maybe even 4 factions so to cut it short the kingmakers here would be either the liberals or the greens and that puts and that's why i mentioned that earlier in money with my call the french president in a pretty solid position of power when it comes to choosing the commission president back speaking of the greens there one of the big stories to emerge from this election they surged out here in germany they did a lot of support especially among young voters how is that going to change the e.u. . we talked to a lot of people about about that and it's clear that climate change has emerged as one of the most important topics of these european elections have said here at this very spot today that maybe it became even the most important topic that of course was a good good news for the greens my colleague catherine martin's talked to one of the leading figures of the german greens to celebrate this massive victory today.
critical of and this is what he had to say about it. i'm not critical of the greens performing quite well tonight how can you explain that. well taking into account that the different parties from different corners or europe that are really extremely successful in this european election. i think they're used to. points of criminality that. probably do a lot to explain the success and one is obviously the issue of climate change with age. and i did not expect that in the beginning but it has become the main topic of this campaign over the last couple of weeks and obviously we're not at an 11th hour and a group that i'm a joins this battle because of opportunistic reasons we have been fighting this
fight for years so people have trust in our ability not just to proclaim goals but to deliver. success through to walk the walk so to say. let's say you have good results how can you translate this good results into power here in the house. first the parliament has been strengthened through a higher rate of participation that i think we will use to impress on the council willingness to shape. the policies for the next 5 years and in order to do that the 4 democratic groups should come together and negotiate a game plan negotiate the major initiatives to be taken to implement the mandate for change that we've got now the game is open which. leading candidate are you supporting with the greens not at this moment this is one bridge
too far 1st talk substance then talk personalities the greens with this kind of results are the greens aiming for a top job in the institution 1st talk substance then talk jobs what is the substance of the substance as. 3 dimensions climate change and vomits biodiversity number one number two's social inclusiveness and social justice and number 3 more democracy in europe thank you very much. so you know interesting points made there but what about the populists because this is the big question we were all asking ahead of this vote how well are they going to do and we don't see in france marrying the pen perform well in italy and they said they want to form a big powerful populist group in the european parliament will we see that actually
turned out. well the voting total if you look at the vote total for the right wing populists it's about there where many expected it to be maybe a little lower so you can say it's victory all across the board they're probably not going to be able to fathom the necessary groups from the different countries to have the strongest group in the european parliament nevertheless you know they're clearly one of the winners of the evening with 2 real highlight wins for them and you mention them in france for example in the pens some room on the managed to beat out of money in my calls liberal party and in italy ynys laid out party made significant gains that were around 30 percent i believe that the last european elections they had around 6 to 7 percent so that is a significant gain if you ask me. for the last most are happy as i said before that the total seems containable there is
