2:01 pm
to have you with this international news and comment around the clock around the world this is. egyptian officials say turnout for the opening round of parliamentary elections has been the highest in the country since the pharoahs efficient results are still being delayed but predictions give the lead to the islamist muslim brotherhood party as cross live now to paula severe poll of the official results aren't in yet but what can we expect at this stage. well we have received results of individual candidates because these were elections in which people were voting for both individual candidates as well as political parties and in this respect only four out of fifty three members of parliament have been officially elected the remaining were unable to receive the more than fifty percent threshold that they needed and in this respect there will be
2:02 pm
a runoff come monday and tuesday next week but in terms of the political parties still no confirmation although we are hearing reports in these parts of the muslim brotherhood in a comfortable first position with more than fifty percent of the votes now the brotherhood has gone so far as to call on of why to accept what is the will of the people the surprise of these elections has been the strong showing of the salafist group it is expected that it could get as much as a quarter of the seats in parliament this would put it in a very poll for position to influence the debate and the discussion at a parliamentary level now this is the first time that a salafist group has registered as a political party in the past it has been accused of insanity sic tarion strife against egypt's minority christian community now we are hearing reaction from this role it has called these developments to quote the israeli government very very
2:03 pm
disturbing the israeli defense minister says that he hopes an injury here to international treaties that it has signed in the past particularly the now shaking nine hundred seventy nine peace treaty with israel the muslim brotherhood has always been to this peace treaty it has close ties with one must and in this respect and mass has issued a statement on its website commending the egyptian people for what it says is clearly showing support for islam as the killer so people are still protesting on top here square one of these showing. well the rallying call in talking square remains much the same as it has been for weeks now and that is that people there simply do not believe the commitment of the promise by the government and the military the military is saying that it will step down once a new parliament is in place next year and it has to this end of point in a new government and they come out on guns only now we were expecting that guns required would finish announcing his new government today this is what we heard
2:04 pm
from him it has not yet happened but after they were leaks to the media in terms of who would be making up some of those positions in the new government we're now hearing that he's reconsidering some of those positions because many of them seem to be faces and names from the old regime and this just reinforces what people in tahrir square are saying and that is that the military is not genuine about wanting to hand over power in the long run now and this have been warning not to read too much into these elections it's still not clear exactly how this new parliamentary will be structured how much power it will have and it's certainly not clear how much power the military in the long run is prepared to handle for thanks very much indeed for that update live. on the human u.n. human rights council as possible solution condemning violations committed by the syrian authorities the document appoints a special investigator to the thing to the government's abuses during the uprising which has gone on for months 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 will only aggravate the crisis. we think that it is the role of the international community to help resolve the internal crisis. promoting dialogue what we don't understand is that. further that can be done in yemen that cannot apply to shoot some. well from the outset the message which has been set up from some quarters capitals is there is no way dialogue can help those who go into dialogue they should stop it immediately that 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
2:06 pm
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. well syria's main opposition group has vowed to cut ties with iran hezbollah and hamas if the current government goes professor you have gotten the rector of the trans and peace university told r.t. that that agenda goes very well with the regional interests of some other countries the western intend this of course to split of syria completely from any rain and connection as they see it in yemen the west is with the leadership and against the opposition. in syria there with the opposition and against the leadership cutting it much too sharp so it's a question where the big boys out the big boys which group and the big boys citing the big west advice and so typical of the there is libya being played again we have

a stone ian but he does not understand the language and he dumps it this social ad urges the russian minority in the stonier to learn estonian 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 law 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 to conduct spontaneous checks on anyone working in any sphere and should a person fail this story in a language exam the body may then initiate the sacking of this employee human right activists say this has turned a language inspection into

2:26 pm
and i fired those people because they had been warned but did nothing cumin rights activists acknowledge the rule of the law but stress that in the language case it is not applied properly because a couple law doesn't put any difference between narva we're almost everyone sees russian as their native language and other parts where most of the people speak a stone ian and with such disproportion we can talk of direct language discrimination and direct ethnic discrimination because activists in another baltic states a lot of you have been gathering signatures and holding a referendum to make russian the second state language and many say they have a strong chance of pushing it through as stony despite being criticised by amnesty international for its language policy is adamant and it seems the russian minority would not catch the magic fish granting their wish anytime soon let's see russia ski r.t. reporting from tallinn in a stone. coming up to twenty seven minutes past the hour now here in the russian
