7:00 am
faired russia two legend two thousand eleven on forty. authorities say that egypt's first round of elections seen at the highest turnout ever but the results are delayed with forecasts suggesting the islamists so winning . the u.n. condemned as human rights violations in syria or the rush of votes against the resolution saying the motion is one sided and will only aggravate the conflict. and a legal loophole in the u.k. is being used as a shield for convicted immigrant criminals saving them from deportation and turning britain into a safe haven for serious offenders from abroad. a
7:01 am
very warm welcome to you this is a live from moscow with me. officials say turnout for the opening round of parliamentary elections has been the highest in the country since the time of the favors the official results are still being delayed but predictions give the lead to the islamist muslim brotherhood party or two more election stages are to be held in january as. reports. well we're hearing from the military council record results will be announced today saturday but this is the third time that such an announcement has been made those events in the south with the supposed to be given on the wednesday we also know hearing from the election commission that the voter turnout they gave that stood at sixty two percent which suggested that more than eight million people turned out that that figure is under their view off to some questions were raised about irregularities and the way that the percentage of sixty
7:02 am
two was actually reached so we might actually hear later today. that the voter turnout is significant. we haven't yet heard the results of the political parties who stood in these elections but there has been a lot of talk a lot of initial exit polls and a lot of that has been badly developed it does seem as if the muslim brotherhood's political party the freedom and justice party will come first with a standing of between forty to fifty five percent and in second position is likely to be ultra conservative enough this hour and the latest figures need to have put that at some thirty to thirty five percent and this is a group that has said that it will push for stricter controls in the parliament there and of course how much power the parliament at the end of the day is given this is in line with the trend we've been witnessing across hoof africa that in recent years has seen as long as parties coming to the fore now what is significant about these results particular is that the voting at this stage was done mostly in
7:03 am
urban areas particularly these men in cairo and the night xandra so when islamist parties have such a strong showing in urban cities it does set the stage that in the next two phases of these voting the islamists will merely continue to do as well because their hold and their popularity in those kind of areas is much higher it also sets the stage for a coalition to be formed with a significant majority in parliament who come for me isn't on this policies not next week we'll see the second phase of voting this is for the house of parliament the third phase will be in january and then there will be voting hold for the upper house of parliament also be there is a significant number of egypt since who are against these elections most of them have been taking to the streets of the past two weeks and months earlier this year they say that these votes all illegal they say that they did not change any real reality on the ground and the writing court in the square does remain the same and that is for the military to step down immediately the concern amongst these egypt
7:04 am
is that it doesn't really matter where the. hold elections or whether you change the face of the government it is still the military who are pulling the strings behind the scene now today saturday we do expect the announcement of the new cabinet that is being formed by the new prime minister come out all guns he has already named some of the cabinet at least a dozen ministers one of whom are actually ministers from the previous regime in the same portfolio is this includes the same foreign minister includes the same information minister and while they will be new names who will be forming part of this government the fact that such a significant majority remain part of the previous government is just merely more ammunition for protesters to talk this way to say that nothing is changing. paul or is monitoring the situation there in cairo you can follow updates from her on twitter feed in her latest tweet here that she reports hundreds continue to sit on her wrist square claiming the vote is illegitimate and the turnout is significantly
7:05 am
lower than what the government boasts do follow us underscore calm get the latest right from the streets of cairo. the un human rights council has passed a resolution condemning violations committed by the syrian authorities and the document appoints a special look into the government's abuses during a month. and calls for the main u.n. bodies to take action russia and china voted against the resolution saying it might lead to a foreign intervention under the pretext of human rights both moscow and beijing believe the motion ignores crimes committed by the rebels and will only aggravate the crisis. we think that it is that all of the international community to help resolve internal crisis through promoting dialogue what don't understand is why if that can be done in yemen that cannot be applied to see it in syria as
7:06 am
a mile from the outset the message which has been set forth from some quarters capitals is there is no way dialogue can help those who go into dialogue we should stop it immediately the there is no future in the arab league initiative we believe that this is something very counterproductive and this is something which has exacerbated the situation in syria the international community is not there to to smell blood and to found confrontation but the international community is there to prevent further bloodshed and to encourage it encourage what this is what the united nations is about this is what the security council is about. syria's main opposition group has vowed to cut ties with iran hezbollah and hamas if the current government goes professor you have the director of the transcend peace university told us here at r.t. that the agenda goes very well with the regional interests of some other countries
7:07 am
the western intend this of course to split of syria completely from any reigning in connection as they see it. the west is with the leadership and against the opposition and in syria their video position and against the leadership cutting it much too sharp so it's a question of where to be voice out a big voice which group and the big boys siding with the big west advice so to precondition of the there is libya being played again we have heard two and divide that would probably cost much more many more civilians than the lives that will protect and it will set the tone for a war that will go on for a long time. you're watching r t live from moscow still to come for you this hour here but unemployment falls in the u.s. a sign of recovery or a sign of the figures. these are real jobs this is a plantation economy we look at where the recent drop in joblessness reflects the real state of things in the american economy. plus we investigate how the russian
7:08 am
speaking community in the former soviet republic of a stoner is falling victim to what they call a language inquisition after losing jobs for speaking their native tongue. so it's been a spark of the hour here in britain an article of the human rights act ensures the right to a family life for those who live there but what sounds fair on paper is actually being used in reality by criminals because they can overturn a decision as to deport them for their offenses by using the legal loophole that allows them to stay artie's laura smith explains the rights to a family life is not an absolute right and it must not be used to drive a coach and horses through our immigration system. article eight an innocuous sounding element in the human rights act but which means having children can stop illegal immigrants being kicked out of britain no matter what they've done

7:14 am
it's really dangerous i think to centralize power the euro has created a great deal of economic problems and then they're going to have you know cap more problems on to that by creating a fiscal union which will mean that government's tax and spend policy will in a sense would be wrong form blossoms and frank first that is a deeply undemocratic move further trouble in the future with the problems are with the euro and they really do need to recognise that the euro should be broken up into more manageable parts and countries have control of their own economic policies again and that way they can get growth back into europe at the moment the european economy is just stagnating because they're stuck in the straight jacket of the european single currency and the global economic crisis rages on artie's financial pundits kaiser continues his mission to expose the shadowy figures behind it his revelations and are coming up next hour but for now

a soldier's life that can never be forgotten or undone when they pull the trigger with another man in the side a close look at the american troops who struggle with the morality of killing in combat is coming your way here and you can watch our special report a little bit later today. i had to go through a ten year old boy. we train them how to. develop the orders for them. we never explained to them why it's ok. most people at the point of looking down in time to pull the trigger became conscientious objectors. i don't remember squeezing the trigger i don't remember seeing him go down when i remember is that we shot him.

7:23 am
official language there but has since faced a clampdown by the authorities and the fast russian community is now worried that they will be forced to favor estonian over their native tongue as i got to ask reports. a russian speaking fisherman catches a magic fish it promises to fulfill all his wishes in this tony and but he does not understand the language and he dumps it this social ad urges the russian minority in the stone to learn estonia in a rather amusing fashion the reality is no joke at all. old state officials are obliged to know the estonian language in the course of their work this is written in our language it also applies to people working in the majority of public services. just like other post soviet baltic states estonia has its own language inspection the body which oversees how the language law is being observed at times laying it down quite harshly the language inspection has the legal right
7:24 am
to conduct spontaneous checks on anyone working in any sphere and should a person fail the language exam the body may then initiate the sacking of this employee human right activists say this has turned the language inspection into a punitive body. it is not that they have nothing to say it's just that they believe their voices are being silenced estonia's three hundred thousand strong russian minority has been protesting at what they describe as the language inquisition some of these people either lost their jobs or are on their threat of doing so because they are forbidden from speaking their native language soonish us through it so often curse soviet power never applied they were strictures on languages distorting it were free to educate in their language during our days the authorities have almost banned the russian language from school besides some russian communities don't have qualified teachers who can teach physics or chemistry in a stony and that is the latest twist five workers at an orphanage were fired for
