germany going to a lead the country's next parliament we look at the main candidates. to win over voters. in other world news this hour north korean media broadcast the video depicting strikes and u.s. military targets. close to. the. protests on the arrests in the rest of spanish region of casa louis of this week pushes for independence from madrid.
and afternoon from the russian capital this sunday september the twenty fourth my names you know neal with a mix of today's world developments on some of the bigger stories of the week but first it is a big day for germany voters head to the polls to choose who they want to represent them in the national parliament. party is expected to top the polls she just voted in within the past hour or so. also cast his ballot we heard him saying earlier that he didn't think the result of the election is a foregone conclusion well thrive become pain there's been intrigue iran which of the smaller parties could become kingmaker and form a coalition for a closer look at what's at stake lection team is following all the developments for
us from berlin. we are on the banks of the river spray right in front of the building where the german parliament sits that's where the fighting for a seat inside that rice tall building where the bundestag will be deciding german politics for the next four years welcome so as the special coverage if you pay a lot of attention to pre-election polls you'll be thinking that i'm glad michael set to become chancellor of the what would be a fourth straight term spin around twelve years already she's almost a permanent fixture certain for the young people who according to them it's all the been a time when she hasn't been in the background. the
time i remember she was always there i mean i can't really remember a time when she was like the chancellor and i don't even know who came before. me as only madonna's genuine good america said i think she was elected in two thousand and five for the first time i was like seven she's just been around forever she's always been an average she's been in power a long time i think there's a piece that is kind of us myself. i've never been an adult without under american governing. in two thousand and five she was elected for the first time i was only thirteen.
a boy from a school died in a traffic accident. in fukushima the guru melted people died. i went to mississippi for a year as an exchange student. black smoke today obama. barack obama became president. and i'm up. on go america. so when the big question today is will. the four years taking up to sixteen years in office chancellor throw the company though it's been a lot of intrigue around some of the smaller parties who could play a big role and actually be kingmakers in forming a coalition in germany kirkos going to try to do this because more of the smaller parties have a very big say over the next to the german government and that's because there's
a split system here in germany where half of the votes of first past the post the other half are actually proportional representation so as long as the party gains more than five percent of the vote it can gain seats in the german parliament and could wield significant power in terms of forming a coalition over the next few weeks of course most people predict that anglo merkel's most insurance is still be the largest party in the next few years but how they will then go about forming a coalition to be the ruling party over a germany will all depend on potentially those smaller parties and most insurance of being in coalition government over the last four years but this has been an incredibly difficult election with both throwing mud at each other so whether they can mend fences and continue this so-called grand coalition all will be seen. now if they can't they will be reaching out to the smaller parties like. the left party
the f.t.p. which are liberals the green party and also potentially now being thrown into the mix as a suggestion that the right wing party the a.f.d. will gain seats for the very first time in this election although all of the parties have said that they will not form a coalition with the a.f.p. well it's have a look now at some of the possible coalition partners that could rule germany over the next four years. german parties really emerge with a solid majority from the elections so when it's over they try to make friends. after having tried hard to undermine each other's policies during complaining but the good news is for the politicians you can always say sorry we can't keep our election promise because our coalition partners. which is not good news for the voters though might ask what was the point when you basically get a program that you didn't vote for. there is no guarantee that voter would like
to have entered. politics turn out there is no guarantee that you will be in the majority after the election and therefore there is no guarantee that what you ever voter want. politics will really work out in this way. so what kind of government might germany get. twenty seventeen range of coalition. make a coalition if merkel's christian democratic union. partners with the business friendly free democratic party and the greens.
if this the greens and the social democrats manage to form a team. take the black out and replace it with the freedom across it and you get traffic like coalition. least likely to form part of any coalition it is germany's socialist left party it must be the wrong shade of the color red the left party. by bigger party. a similar case but your president of the spectrum is the alternative to germany
branded as far right by critics like glue could be an interesting new touch but so far german politics seems reluctant to rule over the. time of. political stability but. preferential voters. are no longer having two major parties they have representation. so as we heard there's a whole range of parties taking part in sunday's election. in particular the free democratic party may only gather around ten percent of the vote could still be part of the coalition.
confirmed what he had been on the tarmac in addition to again missing out a little of that i'll just remark my mind. now on political group that probably won't get invited to be part of a coalition is the controversial alternative for germany party frequently criticised for its strong anti immigration and islam stance spot that though is in third place according to the latest opinion polls discussed several issues with party spokesperson. pete if you come out a third party this would be a great success if you imagine that last time we wouldn't even get five percent and
now it's going to be something more than ten now your policies are some of the more talked about with the most publicly known ones of the anti islam anti immigration the actual number of applications immigration immigrant applications into germany even though that rose dramatically two thousand forty two to two thousand and sixteen dropped a lot this year so you're going to struggle to get support on that basis in the future do you need to now come up with some new policies a new way of enticing support of course our opponents always claim that we're a single issue proudly and it's all about bad racism that's not true it's just a little about illegal immigration that's an important point but we are also the only party rejecting the idea of manmade global warming we are the only party rejecting the supporting the traditional family we are the only party with rejecting rising energy costs so they are a lot of policy fields where we can make points to the fact that some people
considered to be far right you compared with the nazi party that's always going to be a huge problem for you does your party need a complete make over it's going to grow our image is wide well right now these claims these kind to blame us this is this is just empty words and has nothing to do with the truth ok what are you going to do after the the results come in today will be a celebration or you're already looking forward to. to the next hour we're going to control. the counting at the polling station because we had had several cases of manipulations during the last two elections so all people are going out and looking in at the polling station and everything's fine they're so ahead of the candidates were out of course he did expect on the campaign trail buying on dollars and trying to influence people who are still undecided but a lot of the good sort of leg work was done well in advance before the big day parties were pushing their agenda vod the form of some striking posters we've
terms of the popular parties and their leaders martin shields has been fiercely battling with anglo-american throughout the election campaign but it actually seems like the to make it and it's up a lot they agree on the explains. choices choices choices leave you to remain strong he believes are wrong. one of the money men test decision with global repercussions now it's germany's must go to a sure thing east this north that much of a different take merkel's refugee policy nobody else is going to have a clear stance on any refugee him which is that i will not accept it. and he is sure to mention some of those people bring us is more valuable than the money that's what you are believes in the same story with europe they want war and the
more you will for war union and hold russia germany the wheel bearing will open old europeans who believe trans national democracy is the best model for us to stand up and break the silence shoots a former president of the european parliament. the leader of europe's powerhouse as i think it here we europeans have our things in our own hands i'll continue to maintain that the twenty seven member states must work intensively together for our future. the two even share a dislike of if not hatred for the man in charge across the ocean. currents in that topic there are lots of concerns about the russians of the north korean dictator we need to united states of america as a peaceful holocaust but we have to bring them on the path of rationality and that means diplomatic solutions. problem the problem that we have with trump is that he
is unpredictable in that sense who should be tool to not even a pre-election debate can get the two to clash spock's to fly what was supposed to be a jewel looked more like a jew at civil and sht allocators of a p.s. i was my initial guidance. internationalist flashed back and staged. oh really how there might be a difference in these. much more in germany we've put it the biggest difference you really should use the. more i guess the. well we will of course be keeping
corporations corporations from washington to washington controls the media the media and. voters elected to businessman to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . let's take a look at some other world news this hour a north korean t.v. channel has broadcast on a limited film depicting pyongyang missiles destroying u.s. military targets after american or a craft cari died exercises off the east coast of the hermit state well as the crisis escalates the leaders of the two countries have been busy trading insults let's take a look kim jong un labeled the american president mentally deranged while his
foreign minister said that a strike on the u.s. is inevitable during a speech to the united nations from fired back saying that kim is a madman and that he and his foreign minister might not be around much longer if they continue with such rhetoric smear account looks further out the spiraling war of words. we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. no one other than trump himself is on the suicide mission if in this in the american laws the home because of a. job will be held in responsible it looks like the north korean leader was particularly affected by trump's comments because the foreign minister responded saying that trump's actions were an irreversible mistake began to have mad men out
there shooting rockets all over the place i rocket man should have been handled a long time ago. you tried to insult the supreme dignity. as a rocket but by doing so he committed the irreversible mistake of making a visit by rockets to the u.s. mainland all the more an effort to pull russian foreign minister urged the u.s. and north korea to end. it's saber rattling and engage in political dialogue accusing both leaders of behaving like a kindergarten children china and russia will continue to insist on a movie reasonable approach in contrast to the emotional one we see now where they behave like children fighting each other in kindergarten and nobody can stop them with the tensions escalating between both countries the situation remains quite unstable at the moment so it's unclear where this is all headed. a nato convoy of danish troops in afghanistan has come under attack from
a suicide bomber with local media reporting five civilians have been injured the nato mission says that none of its personnel were hurt or the attack comes less than a week after the u.s. secretary of defense announced that three thousand more troops are to be sent to afghanistan that's going to bring the total number of american soldiers stationed in the country to fourteen prior to two thousand i spent donald trump said washington will request nato backing we will ask our nato allies and global partners to support our new strategy with additional troop and funding increases in line with our own we are confident they will well this is the third attack this month against the nato led mission in the country on the anniversary of the nine eleven attacks in the u.s. a suicide bomber blew himself up near an american convoy injuring five soldiers five days earlier an attacker targeted the base on the outskirts of kabul the
taliban claimed responsibility for that well afghan base political analyst that we spoke to sees the the taliban is on the rise in the u.s. needs to change its strategy. getting more power for the government. and the promise of the united states with three thousand additional forces the. training the afghan army i think it's proving to be no use it's a provoking more. movements and because the. americans are not living. in fear those are not leaving afghanistan brother building strengthening their forces in afghanistan therefore the old saw increasing the attacks on its own national forces the u.s. and nato has to change their strategy. and instead of increasing their forces in afghanistan to increase. their.
afghan ministry of defense with. more fighter jets. fighting in war. this time next week the spanish region of catalonia is set to vote in a referendum on breaking away from spain saturday so rival crowds faceoff in the regional capital barcelona i think. her was begun i thought you were i. a wedding state sponsorship for a team's arrested fourteen senior counsel officials including a junior economy minister they were all charged with misusing public funds breaching official jussi and disobedience they will also be fined up to twelve
dollars or zero for every day they continue organizing the referee has been treated as the terror to the legal of many council and say they are still determined to. this legally legitimate for a thousand year old nation like letters of cancer lonia a referendum will be held accountable sunday the first of the time. i'm. ok. it's just us the house the problems in this case the spanish justice system and not the some one hundred twelve my as if. this aggression is and was sort of the rule it damages the states of law and all of
the constitutional guarantees. thanks this referendum can be over it was never legal all it gets moved to. that. but. i. thought i. was well out there weekly for no do join us again in a huff an hour's time for our special coverage of the german election life from berlin. thank god nobody thought that the marshall and. islamic states claims it was behind
the month just a terror attack by the north front so kill the priest every time a terrorist attack happens all these people are out there screaming. i says so bad someone needs to do something against them and for me was like yeah why don't we move them something. give them. a number. of them to call in a bucket of the case of. each element of a check if pleasing shiny stuff isn't made up his temper is got a good. look at the commision let me show them.
what politicians do you show me things to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express injury. or some want to be rich. but you'd like to be close with what before three of them or can't be good that. i'm interested always at the water's edge. there should be.
a welcome to all the party is the term crowdsourcing was quite almost a decade ago the phenomenon has expanded from a now problem so. into a new way of life millions of people rely on it to learn a foreign language or to find a better driving with her sitting individually teleservices in exchange for that only data point how far can this energy between customization and data collection can go into shaping our world well to discuss that amount joined by lose fine on fuel and follow the all of the free language up location delingpole mr for now it is great to talk to you thank you very much for your time and i thank you for having me here a few years ago when i would tell people that i'm self-taught and i wish there would be pretty impressed the but unfortunately you know the name or the application you how to develop allows pretty much everybody to learn a foreign language without physical interaction with a human being don't you think that language instructor is a hating you for that because you are filling the employment no no fortunately
where we're not hated by language and structures they're actually love us in the united states for example about fifteen percent of all language classrooms use dual lingo. it is still the case that a human teacher helps to motivate a lot it's very hard and one of the hardest things about learning a language by yourself it is possible to learn a language by yourself with the application but it's very hard to stay motivated but level i think you're providing the kind of service that no teacher can provide and i think the quiz thing about your technology is that it marries assignments with instantaneous progress evaluation nor teacher could provide that kind of precise feedback to his students right yeah there are many things that we actually think that teachers do illegal combined are better. teachers you know one of the pros with teachers especially in a classroom is there's one teacher and there's maybe thirty students or twenty students they cannot provide.
