this is the daily news live from the european union leaders made for the 3rd day to try to agree a new commission president eastern members holdouts against a choice backed by germany france and spain. and that choice is. the lead socialist candidate so far there is no majority for him but consultations have started a 3rd day in a role right here at the e.u.
council in brussels we know it will be extremely difficult with no compromise in sight. also on the program police in hong kong would have to protest a stall in ransacked the parliament building island's chief executive says she is shocked and saddened by the destruction. and in the women's football world cup team usa gear up for the semifinal against england americans looking ahead to the final . and the talk to potential. welcome to the program european leaders have gathered for the 3rd day to efforts to try to agree a candidate for the blocks top job arriving in brussels full for one of the longest day you summit at us. said they were optimistic about they could find
a consensus on replacing e.u. commission president john paul young to france and germany had agreed on france demands but to check prime minister under a bad dish says his country plus poland hungary and slovakia would not vote for the dutch social democrats and i know we have to find a solution we spent 21 hours yesterday saying that mr term amounts is not the right amount to liaise between the e.u. commission and our countries the fall feet on well do you see that brussels bureau chief is max hoffman he's that at the heart of the action welcome max why are these eastern european countries so close to mr timmons. well funds to mons is already a member of the european commission he is the 1st vice president and he's sort of the go to guy for infringement procedures so if a country does something wrong the commission says funds go get him he's done so for example for poland with the rule of law procedure especially for eastern
european countries and so he has become a symbol in those countries for everything that in the eyes of the leaders there is wrong with the european union the watchdog from brussels who tries to change things things as they are run in those countries that's why there was such fierce opposition in eastern europe so does this appointment necessarily need unanimity. it doesn't you need a qualified majority of the qualified majority it works like this 65 percent of the population of the european union need to be represented need so that's the majority you need there and the 2nd majority you need as at least 21 member states saying ok but it appears that leaders like the german chancellor will want to make sure they have a larger majority like that to make sure that in the next 5 years they don't run into trouble and there's not too much bad blood. a city or thing countries pointing
to a larger problem with the a you have a commission that is based on centrist politics trying to satisfy the demands of a you countries and voters over increasingly moving away from the center. the e.u. is by design construction that's supposed to even things out to avoid extremes to find a compromise in the past that's always worked i mean in the past you always had also trouble finding solution this is not the 1st overnighter from sunday to monday that we've seen but it's becoming more complicated because parties are coming into power in poland in hungary also in italy that were present more extreme movements also in the european parliament and that's why it's so hard to find a majority not only here in the european council but also in the european parliament where in the past 2 of the big parties would have been enough to have a majority no longer the case and that's why this time the puzzle to find this package for the e.u. top jobs is more complicated than ever because of this rift in the e.u.
bit between these new more extreme movements and what you mentioned the more central orientated politicians and you mentioned the european parliament. to elect that president tomorrow is that likely to be asked contentious a procedure. it really depends whether the leaders manage to find a package here because if they do they do that while working the phones with the leaders of the european parliament making sure there is a majority for what they are trying to do here in brussels so if there is a package that a majority in the european parliament on wednesday is likely if not the parliament will have to decide do we go ahead with the vote anyway and then that will be very contentious a rebid that's never happened before but it's more likely that the european parliament will put off the vote then maybe for another day or maybe even until the next session and wait until the leaders finally find a solution itself but in brussels thank you.

deal. such a move would be a step toward amassing the highly refined material needed for a nuclear bomb. it would also raise the possibility of the e.u. taking punitive action. europe has fought to keep iran in the 2050 nuclear deal but britain france and germany have promised a strong diplomatic response in the event of a fundamental breach by tehran if e.u. officials can't get iran to reverse course in the coming days u.n. sanctions could be reimposed in 2 months time. firefighters are struggling to contain a wildfire in the north east of germany the blaze broke out in woodland at a former military training area near the village of obtain hundreds of people have been moved from their homes fear of unexploded munitions is hampering firefighting efforts. smoke as far as the eye can see. covering more than 4 square kilometers of forest this is said to be the largest fire the north eastern
german state of western pomerania has ever seen. more than 1000 people have been forced to flee their homes and the residents of 3 villages have been evacuated . we have evacuated numerous villages at the moment we're doing our best to keep them safe moment on. we're not just talking about putting out this fire rather we're talking about protecting people's lives and livelihoods and securing the region it's dangerous work for the firefighters and not just because of the flames but also because of potential explosions this was previously a military training area and tons of bombs are munition is still on site that's why firefighters are not allowed to come any closer than one kilometer to the blaze the state's interior minister is calling for federal help. this illegal stuff that's
been this it's federal land and the leftover munition and other issues go back many years now we're seeing the terrible result the state can't be left alone to deal with this problem and it wasn't the cause of the fire is not yet been determined and authorities are not ruling out a possible arson. a scientist in hungary say the authoritarian prime minister viktor orban is trying to seize political control of their research hungary's parliament has just passed a law aimed at the structure of the academy of sciences i mix of been protesting as the bill gives the prime minister the power to appoint people to run parts of the academy critics say this will stifle academic freedom. journalist stefan bourse in budapest can tell us welcome and so what impact is this a lot change likely to have on scientific research in the country. well it will have fate huge impact on scientific research because still a lot of us just passed here behind me and palm and will basically mean that the
hunt gary and prime minister viktor orban will get through a committee troll all for a 200 year old institution namely the hunger in academy of sciences for not only that it means also deaths of thousands of research here since scientists will now have to ask for missions from a committee field to the us government employed cease watch day can do and what not and they viewed it as a tremendous threat to free thinking in hungary they also point out that similar issues were already happening wisdom media and older institutions including for instance a central european university that was basically moved out of the country to austria for most of its courses so they are very very concerned and as a matter of fact later today to be protests against these law as well happening here in budapest and why does the government to want to do this well what they are saying about hungary and promise of it to orbit and has said that he wants that
scientists are moral more profitable for the economy and he is think step. scientific research is really necessary but of course the scientists are arguing we are not an a.t.m. machine we are doing what is very important for society and that this way is not the way. scientists and science should be treated so they are very very upset about these developments you said there's a protest shot july i can see why academics would be does the public can bring free food and wine. yes i think that the opposition supporters very much care and also the fact that thousands of people have already indicated through social media today will participate i think it is a broader issue for many people but of course. the fetus is still the biggest party here so i think for now we should do is to it's majority in
parliament to fear at a moment. posts in budapest thank you. to the west african country of senegal female entrepreneurs often face discrimination take the case of a business woman and day been. since the concept of parity exists there are no more do not enter signs for women want to. know more about this very mark cutifani. honestly i pity them its hard work i respect their choice but i can't that women fix my car. or this woman isn't interested in any female stereotypes but they is changing the industry running on her own car workshop since 2006 she's been getting our ends dirty working on engines for the past 26 years but it's been
