11:00 pm
>> and worse >> is sam mullet sexually abusing people? >> yes >> the shocking untold story revealed for the fist time. an america tonight exclusive investigation rouge amish only on al jazeera america >> brazil's newly elected president promises to make her priority. we'll take a deeper look in the week ahead. governor quomo eases ebola restrictions two days after he put them in place. china's fine wine.
11:01 pm
one of them until now. greatly to have you with us. the official results in brazil's elections are in. president del m delma rue 7ma m. >> i have this hope that all this energy to moibles the mobia for us to build bridges. >> lucia newman has the story.
11:02 pm
>> no one would accuse her of being charismatic. delma rousseff, tortured during brazil military dictatorship. five years ago, she was treated for cancer. it was his energy minister and chief of staff that rousseff was first nicknamed as brazil's iron lady, a technocrat. in the world's second largest emerging economy. but while her worker's party is credited with taking 40 millionburyians out of poverty and into the middle class, president rousseff has been able to maintain the economic growth and although she was tough on
11:03 pm
corruption in the last two years she has been unable to shake a series of multibillion dollar bribery scandals, one involves the brazil giant oil company, petrobras. defending the interests of the poor and meld class. she has promised to punish those guilty of corruption. as brazilians proved last year during a wave of social protests, they have grown impatient with their politicians. so brazil's first female president needs to prove she will allow her country to move out of economic recession and fulfill its potential. lucia newman, al jazeera,
11:04 pm
brasilia. >> earlier i spoke to newman about the president's next term. >> clearly the fight against corruption she said the first thing she was going to do was to prove that she can be a better president and a better person, that she had heard the message of the electorate that they wanted change and one of the first things thomas that she apparently will do is change this country's finance minister to try to jump start the economy again. remember, this is the world's second largest emerging economy, currently in recession. people want to see better standard of living, less inflation so she's going to have to get cracking and do it soon. >> lucia newman, joining us from brazil. mark longeman, great to see you. >> good evening, thomas. >> i know you've been following this one closely.
11:05 pm
what message does rousseff's reelection send tonight? >> i think it sends the message to both the incumbent and the opposition. for the incumbent she gets another four years to do what she set out to do, grow with equity and income redistribution. she succeeded on the income redistribution but hasn't quite driven the economy to 3, 4, 5% a year. the challenger, the option parties, neves, the opposition candidate, they need to learn the lesson that they need a governing program not just for the middle class but for the majority of brazilians who need strong programs and lots of protection in the workplace in order to make gains in whatever growth brazil is able to generate in the coming years. >> but neither candidate will
11:06 pm
talk about the welfare program. >> well it's been so tremendously successful, some of the cash assistance programs and so forth. but i think in this hotly disputed and very dramatic presidential contest, starting with the death of the third placed candidate, eduardo campos, the rise of his running mate marina silva and aecio neves, coming up in the second round, it's been such a dynamic contest, and because of the sluggish growth the president wasn't able to pat her margin. and that hotly disputed contest forced a lot of mud slinging and very little talk about exactly how much each candidate would succeed in actually rebooting the economy. >> very, very hotl hotly contes.
11:07 pm
does this show how much the country is divided when this was such a hot race? >> well i think it is divided. the incumbent won hands down in the northeast and the north, some of the poorest regions of brazil while the challenger neves did well in the southeast and the south, especially the state of sao paulo. the ones who aren't middle class or thriving in the sector, president dilma has delivered more. and strong government policies that he was the right guy at the right time to lead even you know deeper social policies and employment policies and so forth. so that's a lesson learned at a i think the opposition should
11:08 pm
take. that they need a program that appeals to more brazilians in all regions around brazil. and of course the incumbent needs to offer more to the private sector middle class professionals, who are look at more transparent, efficient taxation, less corruption as your report mentioned, they're looking for more transparency in government interactions and of course the political reform which everybody wants but the politicians will want to sit down and work out the details on. the president will need everyone to work on a consensus based political reform in the future. >> quickly mark, we voanl a few seconds, how do you think this is viewed by the rest of the country and the rest of the world? >> most south american countries have had a good wip with either senator dwvmentilma, the
11:09 pm
challenger might win and improve u.s. brazil relations. i wouldn't count out president dilma. we'll just have to see. she did reach out in term of dialogues. >> we'll have to leave it there, good to have you with us, joining us from washington. >> thank you, thomas. let's turn to tunisia where voters elected a new parliament yesterday. be results aren't expected until tomorrow. at a's election is seen as a test in the country's transition to democracy. hashim al bara has more. >> it was really a major concern to give you an idea, a town on the western part of the country, polling lasts opened late.
11:10 pm
at the same time, the nation was launching a counterterrorism position, 60% of the registered voters who cast their vote today had a strong message, that whoever wins the election has to tackle this issue because tunisia has been grappling with the rise of armed groups, instability and violence. and people say we don't want to see democracy coming along with instability. we want a strong government that puts an end to violence. >> what are people expecting? are people preparing for a coalition government? >> well, as we speak we know from our sources that the races are very tight between the conservative in other party and the centrist secularist. now, the two parties agree on a national unity government, that
11:11 pm
could be a positive thing. because they are very strong with huge backing here in tunisia. but it remains to be seen whether two parties have been having many, many differences in the past, huge divisions, politically divided can agree on a new agenda to rule the country. but the general sentiment here is that if tunisia is to be an exception in an arab world that has been beset by military coups, civil wars, sectarian divide, there need to be compromise and consensus. and to build that consensus you have to bring all the political parties and agree on a plan and move forward. >> over to ukraine now. early results are in for today's parliamentary election. prowestern parties who support president petro poroshenko look like they'll dominate the parliament. >> the results of the election bring all the prodemocratic,
11:12 pm
proeuropean forces. that gives us a lot of opportunity to develop to provide the reform, to present the program of strategy 2020. where we have steps for anticonstructioanticorruption, e rule of law, steps for the investment requirement. >> produce separatists are in control in the donetsk area where elections did not occur. up next, we'll take an in depth look at the ukrainian are election. stay tuned at 11:30 eastern, 8:30 pacific. health workers will be monitored in their homes, said
11:13 pm
president andrew quomo, for three weeks. >> during those 21 days health care workers would check on them twice a day to monitor their temperature and condition. if they develop symptoms, they will be transferred to a hospital. >> in new jersey, nurse casey hick ox is being kept in a hospital. tonight her lawyer says she's not second and there's no medical or legal basis for her detention. >> i think that there has to be a toning-down of what has taken place here by the government. i think that both cdc and nih will all agree that there is no reason that casey should be maintained in a tent at this hospital. >> several federal officials are criticizing the new jersey quarantine policy now also in effect in illinois and florida. the nation's top infectious
11:14 pm
disease specialists says penalizing health care workers may setback efforts to bring ebola under control. >> the best way to protect americans is to stop the epidemic in africa, and we need those health care workers to do that. no matter what automatically they're under quarantine can actually have unintended consequences. >> meanwhile chris christie is standing by his decision to impose the quarantine. he says allowing health care workers to monitor themselves is unreliable. meanwhile nurses who work at the new york city hospital where doctor is treated for ebola apparently were treated poorly. mayor deblasio says there will be a policy for anyone who is disrespecting first responders. >> we have heard a report of nurses being mistreated in our city when it became clear they worked at befl, being treated --
11:15 pm
bellevue, being treated differently, treating their children differently. that is absolutely unacceptable. that is absolutely unacceptable. we are in a crisis where we all have to hang together and we have to first respect our first responders. >> in tonight, as we have learned yesterday, ebola has made its way to another african nation, mali. a two-year-old girl has died. she has contracted the disease after traveling to guinea. dominic kane reports on efforts to contain the virus. >> prepare to bury mali's first ebola victim, a two-year-old girl who came here from guinea. she had traveled on a bus with her grandmother while already showing frank symptoms of the disease. until now, mali had not been directly touched by the ebola outbreak in west africa. >> the announcement of the first
11:16 pm
case of ebola here hasn't been easy for people and the health workers panicked. this disease is new for everyone in the world. not just the people here. >> reporter: the world health organization has warned that the little girl may have had high risk contact with many people on her bus journey. her grandmother is currently being kept in isolation. one of 43 people who have been identified and are being held for observation. >> people weren't calm because of the gravity of the illness but because we took precautions particularly in terms of toilet hygiene. we have been able to keep all the children at home, none have gone to school. there was a little fear and worry everywhere but although the person has died thank god we know what precautions we have to take to isolate and make secure people. >> reporter: news of the first ebola case in mali prompted neighboring mauritania to close its border.
11:17 pm
helping authorities to try to deal with the prom. dominic kane, al jazeera. >> the u.s.'s coalition forces launched five air strikes against i.s.i.l. near the syrianity of kobani on saturday. i.s.i.l. apparently has been heavily shelling kobani city center. bernard smith has more now from the turkey-syria border. >> all that spraye separates tuy from syria here, is a little bit of bashed wire. if they wanted to, they would be allowed to cross they don't want to leave behind their cattle or their vehicles. most of them have elected to stay there and have been there for weeks really since i.s.i.l. started to encircle and push on kobani. in the distance over there is kobani. this entrance to the area is one of two that could potentially be used by the iraqi peshmerga when
11:18 pm
and if they come to kobani. you can see how close we are. just hearing the gun fire and the artillery in the distance. the other border crossing, right in the center of kobani, is where i.s.i.l. forces have been shelling with mortars. because they want to stop. they want to take control of that border crossing to prevent the passing of the peshmerga so they can control access to kobani there. that is why this border might be the one that is used instead because here the turkish military are on control on this side and just on the other side that for the time being remains in control of syrian kurdish fighters. >> bernard smith on the turkey-syria border. coming up, flags are lowered at two bases in afghanistan as the
11:19 pm
military mission of america comes to an end. eight months after the deadly uprising ukraine holds parliamentary elections. tonight we will take an in depth look at our sunday segment, coming up at the bottom of the hour.
11:20 pm
11:21 pm
>> after 13 years british and u.s. combat operations have officially ended in afghanistan's hellman province. two key bases have been turned over to afghan forces. jennifer glasse reports. >> british forces and u.s. marines handed off their last bases in hellman province to afghans. operation enduring freedom effectively began in october 2001. there were once more than 30,000 attorney soldiers on these bases alone.
11:22 pm
nato's combat mission is over at the end of the year and most troops are going home. the british foreign secretary says they have achieved their mission. >> there is a better chance for a stable condition in afghanistan because we have a government of national unity and an army separated by the all parts of afghanistan. >> but afghanistan suffered heavy battles with al qaeda in afghanistan. security situation remains difficult and that's one of the reasons why some 12,000 nato forces will remain in afghanistan until 2016 to support the afghan forces but their role will be vastly different than in the past. they will train, advise and assist the 350,000 afghan security forces. for britain and the u.s. marines the handover means their role in afghanistan is over.
11:23 pm
jennifer glasse, al jazeera, kandahar. >> spot referendum on sunday was supposed to determine if street protests would continue in hong kong. clogging streets in the city for more than a month. the group is facing mounting criticism for block access to businesses. there should be further dialogue. >> i think the reason posing the suspension is because of the insufficient discussion. therefore i think what may be the next step in order to rectify the mistakes we have made, i think we need to have more discussion about the next step. >> thousands remain camped out at the protest site. many demonstrators say they see no resolution in sight. meanwhile, members of the chinese association expressed their support for police officers and their disagreement with the occupy central movement. they presented gifts to officers and urged pro-address protesters
11:24 pm
to negotiate with the government. now to the mid term elections here in the u.s. four swing races could determine the balance of power in congress. al jazeera amal jazeera's docums mid terms takes a look. here's a preview. >> i think one of the most surprising thing about our series is all four races we decided to cover last spring are still incredibly close. i don't think anybody has any idea how these will turn out. >> there comes a time when people have to rise up and be repairers of the breach. i want to suggest that that time is right here, and right now. >> for the first time in decades, we had a republican house and a republican senate. if it weren't so ugly, it would
11:25 pm
have been comical. once they got control with the veto proof majorities and a governor they moved hard to the right. >> they passed voter i.d. legislation. they decided not to accept federal medicaid money under obamacare. they cut taxes by a lot. which we're still feeling today and which they're feeling kind of a hole in their budget. >> the impression that republicans got in there and went wild, passing every right wing bill they could has weakened the republican brand. >> an emphasis of being sure that our system works for everybody. and i think the difference is, that thom tillis is rigging the system to the detriment of everybody else. >> first polls that came out in june showed the race was ad the heat. the race is still a dead heat. >> what keeps me up at night is all the people in iowa who have depended on tom harkin for the
11:26 pm
last 40 years and what's going to happen to them if i lose this election on november 4th? >> conservative joanie ernst, who covers more than just lip lipstick in her purse. >> the boys love my commercials. >> we're all getting in there. >> it's really a race about personalities. rather than a race about issues. >> it means so much to me that you came by. >> we've concluded you're decent person. >> you get another hug for that. >> david young, you can't hide for me back there. nice to see you. >> stacy apple is trying to use the power of her candidacy to become the first female senator in congress for iowa. >> being mike is pegged way too
11:27 pm
far right and extreme. less than 10% latino to 20% latino. >> you can catch the mid terms documentary right after this news hour at midnight eastern, 9:00 pacific. but first tonight, ukraine's landmark parliamentary elections. we'll tell you what the win for pro-west parties means for the future. in our segment, the week ahead, that's next.
11:28 pm
11:29 pm
>> in our state eventually doing away with income taxes. >> can governor brownback win better than the government spends it.
11:30 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america. here are the top stories we're following right now. dilma rousseff comes out on top in the brazilian election. narrowly defeated her opponent, aecio neves. in one of the closest contests in history. casey hickox has been kept in a tent for quarantine. her lawyers say she is not sick and there's no medical or legal reason for her detention. i.s.i.l. has been shelling the city of kobani, u.s. air strikes launched five times against the area today. it's sun and time for our regular look at the week ahead. ukrainians headed to the polls today to vote in parliamentary elections. these come eight months after
11:31 pm
protests sparked an uprising across the country. aal jazeera's barnaby phillips reports. in the square of the uprising. >> in the square where the proaftprotests against the prest yanukovych began, the parties are promising sweeping changes. yesterday, i asked you to vote for the progressive democratic reforming ukrainian and pro-european majority. i'm grateful that you have listened to me. i am grateful for your support of my call. >> reporter: earlier the president traveled to the east to show his support of the army and his commitment to restoring ukraine's unity. but in rebel controlled areas millions of people did not vote and it's not clear how a new government will convince or force the separatists to back down. and although ukrainians gave a clear majority to reformist parties they split their votes
11:32 pm
amongst these parties. and so, a delicate period of coalition building is likely to follow. the parties that will form the new government are saying that this election marks a decisive break with the old corrupt ways of ukrainian politics. but a new coalition government will still struggle to overcome powerful vested interests and to revive the economy and to bring peace to the east. political change has already come at a heavy price in ukraine. the winners of this election have the daunting task of ensuring these sacrifices were not in vein. barnaby phillips, al jazeera, kiev. >> discontent began last year after president viktor yanukovych rejected a trades deal with european union? moving to deeper ties with moscow. protests led to yanukovych's ouster. but the problems deal with
11:33 pm
something far worse than who should become ukraine's leader. the u.s. says it wants russia to stop its military support for russian separatists, while russia wants u.s. to cut off its economic aid to the country. moscow says the move followed kiev's failure to pay its energy debt. ukraine tried buying natural gas from european countries tblawt t led russia to stop its splice to those countries. we saw just a moment ago just how divided the country is east and west. >> actually i think east-west divide was not as prominent as
11:34 pm
it certainly was a few months ago. i think the fact that the pro-west parties really achieved a lot of support, means that perhaps some of those russian-speaking minorities who live in ukraine and are ukraine citizens and vote aren't necessarily so produce a pro-rue said they were. >> they want the split. >> right. >> how would you describe the expectations among the people leading up to the elections? >> i think there's a great hope for peace. i think this was -- this -- the most pressing issue in this election was whether or not the government is going to support continue to support the minsk
11:35 pm
peace initiative. the one with the most votes, it's not clear what kind of coalition they will be joining to gain a majority. >> talking about poroshenko's party winning the most seats. what do we know coming in a close second? >> i think it was a little bit of a surprise, poroshenko was projected, his party, to get 30%. and yatsenyuk yuck's party was unexpected. and the prime minister is considerably i believe less compromising when it comes to dealing with russia and resolving this conflict in the donbas area of ukraine. it's probably pad news for the kremlin because there's going to
11:36 pm
be more support for a stronger line taken against moscow. >> a lot of these scenes with the fighting intensifying seen as symbolic in a lot of these races. >> i think that's true but the important thing of course is that poroshenko got a validation, and that the elections came across as peaceful and democratic. and it even shows that even though ukraine has tremendous problems economically with this war going on, that the democratic process did take place. >> even if, though, the majorities of the parties mr. petro are western it doesn't next mean they are unified. >> yes. i think there are three main camps now in the parliament. around they will have to determine amongst themselves which vector the country will take. there is a radical nationalist
11:37 pm
group of about 13%, that's the actual radical party, and the freedom party. then there is a nationalist pragmatic group and i would put that number at about 40%, with a largest party there being yatsenyuk yuck's popular front. and then there's the more pragmatic but also nationalist party which is poroshenko's block. it is a little bit surprising that his closest ally civic initiative appears not to have made it into the parliament. but let's remember that this party list only accounts for half the seats. we shall have to see who actually wins, and which individuals win in the single mandate districts. and that -- there's some very notable people that will probably gain a seat in parliament through the single mandate districts. >> when this parliament is
11:38 pm
complete ms. knight can it fix ukraine's crippling crisis? >> that remains to be seen. i think if -- as i said, the ukrainian economy is in terrible shape. inflation i think is about 14%. and but they're hoping for some financial support now from the international monetary fund. and hopefully, if they can get together a package for some sort of reform, and of course, the biggest problem they have to tackle is corruption. and apparently, there are quite a few bureaucrats in the ukrainianian government who are holdovers from the yanukovych regime. and there is a lot of corruption, and that will have to be a part of the effort to reform the economy. >> we talked about some numbers here about 3 million people in the donetsk and luhansk area did
11:39 pm
not vote. what do you think of that mr. petro? >> that was part of minsk agreement. kiev then decided to change the date of those elections. however that was done unilaterally. the rebels have gone on and decided to hold it under the terms that they initially agreed to. then we will have to see how these elections will be interpreted. it is important however for the peace process to continue, to have some sort of popular mandate for the rebel-held areas so that the people who claim to speak for the rebels can then engage in continued direct negotiations with the elected representatives of the kiev government on the extent o of their authority within ukraine. >> how do you think russia will respond, ms. knight? >> i don't think that mr. putin and his colleagues are going to
11:40 pm
be too pleased with this overwhelming pretty much pro-western mandate that the elections have brought. there -- they -- the kremlin views ukraine as sort of the last bastion against nato. and i also think, you know, it is kind of a disquieting example for the kremlin to see a popular election, a democratic election in a country that's so close to them. so i think they're going to probably take a little bit of a harder line. but at the same time, it's going to be difficult now for them to talk about the ukrainian government not really being letting and fascist and all the other names that they have called the people in the government. so i think they're going to have to tread a little more carefully, given mandate. >> you talked on this, what are the implications on this
11:41 pm
election? >> i think international implication is there will be a resolution to the conflict in the eastern part of ukraine. and this is very important. because the western europeans and the united states have been in a very difficult situation. they know that the reiterations are supporting the rebels with troops, and machinery and so forth. and they -- yet they're reluctant to go too far in opposing this. so i think again, this election is going to give the people in the west the officials in the west a little bit more have of a feeling of support for ukraine in its efforts to become a real democracy. >> and narrowing it down to the ufs mr. petro, are there expectations for this election? >> i think u.s. expectations are
11:42 pm
met, i think russia already agreed last week and said whatever the outcome of the elections it would be recognized by the kremlin. i actually disagree with ms. knight's comment that this election outcome makes a resolution of the conflict more likely. given the composition of the parliament, i suspect there is a stronger constituency now than there was previously, to resume the military engagement on the part of the ukrainian government. they are not in a position to do so right now for a variety of reasons but come spring, we may see some initiative by kiev to resume the fighting in the east, to what they would consider total victory. >> we talked about the collapsed economy, ms. knight. are there resolutions to the energy crisis to the situation the people are facing right now? >> well, it's very difficult because the kremlin is holding
11:43 pm
tough on the issue of debts for gas and so forth. but again i think -- i think you have to look at the motivations for maintaining this tough stance. and i think that probably, what's going to happen is that putin will use this as a bargaining chip. with kiev. perhaps to get them to be more inclined to come to terms with the kremlin's view of how the conflict should be settled. so i think the gas issue is just part of very complex group of issues that are going to be -- have to be addressed including the conflict in eastern ukraine. >> looking ahead, mr. petro, what do you see for the future of ukraine? >> continued fractious debate. i took note of the fact that several military commanders who were high up in the list of the various parties have now -- now
11:44 pm
have parliamentary seats. and they don't always get along amongst themselves. and one is already on record as saying he will hit another one in the face as soon as he takes a seat in parliament. there's a lot of friction in -- that i expect from this parliament. there will be unity, i think, on certain basic common agenda on the issue of illustration but there will be a very serious debate when it comes to a common front about what to do about regaining the eastern ukraine and perhaps even discussions about trying to reach out and regaining crimea which i think is not a very hopeful prospect for ukraine. >> your final thoughts on how history will remember ukraine?
11:45 pm
>> i think crimea is gone forever being part of ukraine. but the revolution as they called it that happened early last year really did come out to have some validity. and the people that were really behind this movement are the younger more democratically minded more progressive party part of the population. so i think we'll look upon these elections as sort of a victory for a more progressive strain. >> still remains to be seen. we'll have to leave 30th. amy knight, a russia expert who writes for several publications. and russell petro. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> on monday the new york city subway celebrates its 100th
