news from russia and around the world this is ours he with me thanks for joining us it's no longer just a dream for georgia has a position with president saakashvili as a ruling united national movement policy making a poor showing in parliamentary elections the vote counting is still ongoing the opposition mega blog georgian dream so far has a solid lead he's an exciting rush of scares and believes he was more on the ballot count a quarter of the votes have been counted and right now all the results are pushing the opposition a little over fifty percent with the un embargo you're mikhail saakashvili trailing at around forty percent but the biggest concern which is growing now is why this use taking so long because so million people in georgia have just their ballots and
the essential election commission actually bro. that most of the words should be should have been counted by morning on tuesday and so far it's only been a quarter of the votes which is causing some concerns among the opposition that the pro-government forces may be stalling the vote count and maybe stalling the opposition's victory and indeed these concerns are backed up by one incident which was recorded by an n.g.o.s called international transparency also causing some worries in the city of freshly armed men a mosque a man presumably a spec ops of the government troops entered the polling station after it was closed and the angio this company the international transparency reports that after they left all the results of this particular polling station were changed so there are certain indications that at least two polling stations results in georgia may be canceled due to these irregularities and clearly this is a very important election for georgia because the party which wins the majority or
the alliance of party which has the majority in the future parliament will then appoint the prime minister who according to new amendments in the constitution will have just about the same powers as the president when saakashvili eventually steps down next year so the future of georgia is at stake here and the party which gains the majority will control georgia for another five or seven years definitely this situation that opposition could in fact when it was something hardly anyone could have predicted just a year ago one one businessman in the british really formed his georgia dream party back then the rating of the current ruling party was about seventy percent now definitely we got lists of how this will actually finishes regardless of how the votes count and which results it produces in the end it is clear that the country is divided and that the opposition has got a has garnered much strength and most of that comes because of huge scandalous september one the footage of prison abuse and sexual torture in prisons in georgia
was released causing a massive outcry causing tens of thousands of people. the protest it is interesting to see whether there will be any more protests because last night we saw thousands of opposition supporters celebrating in the streets but definitely these people were shown a candy of a possible victory if this scandal is taken away from them it is really hard to predict what would happen given the past record of violent conflict in georgia and elect say will be keeping us updated on the vote counting and the mood in tbilisi of the day goes on but you can catch up on what's happened there so far on his twitter feed. the syrian crisis is the result of a coherent collective effort by gang of foreign states that is the message serious foreign minister laid out for the u.n. general assembly his trance that damascus remained open to
a political solution to the civil war which is ravaging his homeland but as aussies marina port now reports this is not what the u.s. backed rebels are aiming for. well he. spoke at length about the ongoing eighteen month civil war taking place in his country he accused the u.s. france turkey saudi arabia and qatar of inducing and aiding terrorism in his country by those countries actually arming financing and supporting the opposition groups in syria he went on to say that the holes that western countries are making for president bashar al assad to step down is not only provoking more bloodshed in his country that he says it's also a believe an interference into syria's domestic affairs he said this success of any international effort in syria would require countries including turkey saudi arabia qatar and libya to stop arming funding and training the syrian opposition and to
rather encourage dialogue so the syrian foreign minister will lead all of course to addressing the world body on the last and final day of the un general assembly he says that he is calling for a political solution in syria and lead to dialogue to agree on a roadmap to a more poor florists tick and democratic syria but we heard u.s. president barack obama first call for. president bashar al assad to step down and his sentiments were echoed by britain and by france just as the u.s. he says stood by supported and helped liberate the people in libya he would like to see the same thing done in syria but on the other hand you have many other countries such as russia china brazil and so on and so forth saying that there can't be any outside intervention into what's taking place in syria this is a crisis that needs to be decided and it between the parties between the syrian
government and the opposition but as as we've been reporting for the past. everybody's talking about the crisis in syria but not clear how to exactly solve it . overshadowed by the syrian conflict bahrain's rulers are taking an increasingly tough stance with pro-democracy protesters and the reason i don't bring five medics have been arrested a day out of they and four other doctors lawyers the final appeal of a jail time is for participating in the rallies that's still ahead for you. but the nation's chief has admitted the alliance's was troll from afghanistan could come earlier than expected this statement comes on the hills of a spate of attacks that brought us casualties to two thousand inside a toxin west us soldiers are taking their toll on the troops' morale said they secretary-general they have also affected nato are good relations and the alliance prepares to hand security responsibilities to local forces and middle east academic
edmund from the american university in washington believes nato has brought. upon itself. well first of all there are there is the issue of the difficulty of trying to impose order and or a certain kind of order by foreign powers on afghanistan but the other part of it has to do also with the policies which have been pursued by nato in afghanistan these smaller cities have not really transformed they question on the ground they have not greatly improved the lives of people and they have not contributed to building up. gun infrastructure as some had promised more importantly i think what we are seeing is that is spawns from afghan population which to a certain extent is reflected by the counter attacks from taliban and its allies
there is a great deal of resentment against by drones which have led to the death of many many. innocent civilians in afghanistan live in the afghan president himself karzai has called on nato to curb the separatists and stop them because they are ending up killing a lot of innocents and creating a great deal of anger and paganism tower of nato and discontent with the conflict is also bringing in the u.k. and next hour we hear from a british m.p. who has been traveling house of commons for his fiery antiwar speech. this war is being prolonged by those that have the power to a need canada that brought their troops home two years ago so the netherlands fringe new zealanders are coming out early absolutely no reason why we shouldn't bring our troops home now the only reason is that we tied in with the politics of
the united states we don't independent state we have to remind ourselves of that we can take own decisions and what we're going to see in the future is deepening trouble they'll be more slaughter because of this whole of this fictitious fictitious aims of the war we've seen to collapse. five medics have been arrested in a series of dawn raids in bahrain after they and four other doctors lost their final appeal over jail terms for taking part in a pro-democracy demonstrations and marzouk from the country's largest opposition party because have long been in the rulers pockets. or law and the national but the national but the is talking about as not justice and butler and the whole process and not that it be and conduct is just in the control of that holding pen to be
told each other will be tortured these medics where not even to the. court they're called and the court did not even can call upon them to be jailed for some time so see the ballasts and when it comes to that people are. people who will be in subjected to. treatment or even killing in court just. as guilty. as you will find these of. us for the same and they had to be imprisons like maybe their job and others even people just expressing their opinions this is their sort of education not that if you. and in the u.s. court action of us speaking out isn't so quick they sold for a. trial.
