to brooke al jazeera. paro rodriguez is in mexico city with more. hundreds of residents in mexico city are ready to spend the night out in the open blankets they got they've got food. they've got flashlights everything that is needed for a night like this quake seven point one the strongest to hit mexico but it was great. this is because it was really close to us it was barely a hundred and twenty kilometers from the capital. when. the time because it was so close in. time to evacuate buildings and that's why some people are still under the rubble. came out to say that. four states has been greatly affected. and just called everyone to work together
12:05 pm
to come together in times like these every. protection everyone that. supreme court is delivering the full judgment on why the president his reelection last month the judges found there was enough evidence to cancel result and order a new poll for next month the opposition leader claimed there was widespread voter fraud in the election correspondent stephanie decker joining us now from my ruby stephanie there handing down the judgment still as we're having this discussion what else do we know. we've just been starting to get some of those details that need to go to the people been waiting for again as well as we expect could pointing the finger of blame at the electoral commission particularly one of the highlighted with transmission. back to the tallying.
12:06 pm
with. the electoral commission explanation. basically they said that in certain areas there was no not sufficient three g. or four g. network for this to work now the court is saying that they don't. believe the fourth day that it leaks commission should have made other arrangements and then they said well when they did in the end issue their verdict the final judgment they said well they felt that admitted that they had network issues with getting all the poor back to where they needed to be but then they very calm plea issued those results so i think you know we're just at the beginning of the details of this and i think it does highlight a question a serious question about the electoral commission and how the head reforms get the stopper exactly the same to them that they didn't play the same companies in charge of that are there trust for that body to carry out the election in the next couple
12:07 pm
of weeks peter it's a very tight time frame we've only just scratching the surface of the details but as we expected we knew the finger of blame would be firmly at the electoral body that at the moment it's all talk in the same format as it was in the carrying out these elections to get the feeling staff that between now and when the next election is shed jule the election commission can fix the problems will fix them enough so that would be acceptable to the electorate. well they've. been divisions within that electoral commission in. two or three days with. their issues and they're going to move forward together and getting back on track. a couple of people. you know. nothing actually happened as of yet.
12:08 pm
i think it is a tight time frame and people are wondering how it is going to play out we're going to have to wait and see. today. by. election day that. because this is such a lengthy report the time to go through. before they will all get together and. the time taking peter. forty days. to leave to take place as far as the vote is a concern stephanie of a got the stomach for this it sounds as if the first election was exhausting let alone a second delayed election and if they can't trust the system i mean that's not the best place to be. you know the fourth. was what it was you have a period now. you have an economy that's being affected by this there is no foreign
12:09 pm
investment. because the people don't know this is going to play out a country where politics is really. where people. and again. the language of the politician who can control in quite the street i can tell you what the media talking to people on social media also in particular there is a very large division. large division and this is also being told by people who monitor social media politics here for your opinions are very involved in politics very personal very passionate about it. they just want to in a way get this done but i think you know the big question is. going to play their cards are they going to fight their supporters on the street to try and get done whatever it is they want question. to time and i think that's what the
12:10 pm

spanish central government to trying to stop the independence referendum going ahead on october the first why now the civil guard are not saying precisely what they are hunting for they could be looking for ballot papers and file of folks in the home but random they could be looking for documentary evidence that the regional catalonian government has been using public funds to organize this referendum it is a referendum that after all vote central government and the constitutional court has ruled illegal and the central government that will take the strongest measures to try and stop and that is what is going on right now and what many is seeing as a great escalation in the political stakes we've formed a vice chairman of the capital and regional government who described this is an intense vention by the spanish state and says that it has the most serious consequences for the citizens of catalonia weaker from the narrow barcelona it was

12:16 pm
minister but only tepid applause from those in the general assembly so i've listened to countless speeches in this hall but i can say that none were born or none were more courageous and forthright than the one delivered by president trump to do the un is normally a place of new aunts and compromise but president trance sees things in starkly black and white even some of the countries that are normally friendly to the u.s. are alarmed one western foreign minister told me the president trumps comments on north korea was unhelpful and a senior security council diplomat said to me why does he want to provoke two similar taney as nuclear crises james pays out his era of the united nations iran's foreign minister responded to mr trump's comments at the u.n. in a tweet mohammed serif said trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times

12:22 pm
a very light statement by a young son so i wish she had made the statement earlier she has not made a very convincing explanation hundreds of thousands of people have fled me and of course the people need to feel safe and her statement did not reassure this we took the initiative and held a meeting on the ranger here at the united nations and we should a statement of declaration at the end of the meeting and with the declaration we have discussed what kind of steps will need to be taken i want to thank bangladesh in particular they've decided to reserve an island for the recount muslim's fling myanmar and turkey will provide all necessary help along with other countries for those people who will be arriving on the island. well the muslims who escape violence into bangladesh are now having to deal with heavy flooding the days of rain well that's flooding rice paddy fields with thousands had set up shelter tanvi a child from cox is bizarre. situation on the ground is still very critical this bad weather and torrential rain had made life miserable for the ranger refugees in
12:23 pm
the camps we have visited camps after camps yesterday many of the camps are inundated with need water refuges are exposed to the environment and children are exposed to rain and water this is very dissimilar situation there is no tents with a weather pro what we saw is basically rudimentary trades made out of plastic sheet expose totally to the environment now the u.n. said that one of the worst refugee crisis in recent history is the international red crescent society said the agency is on the ground in adequately prepared to meet this major challenge on the ground because sheer number of refugees coming across from the border but the question remains why isn't there an international response despite much media coverage on the ground then made a lot more emergency response teams on the ground just like during outbreak and other disaster but we don't see that mostly it's a local volunteers and some international volunteers who are going to commerce
12:24 pm
providing relief but the international agencies are located in a certain particular point they're distributing goods and relief on lead to those specific areas but the refuges are spread all across the need to mobilize them and bring to a certain point so the distribution is more efficient unless something is done immediately buying of those government to reappear to the international community to response to this major disaster taking place in bangladesh police in the u.k. have arrested two more men in connection with the. london underground train last week. being questioned officers arrested three men in wales and two men in england thirty people were injured when a homemade explosive device went off during the morning rush on friday. staying in europe just a few days to go before what's expected to be an easy win for the german chancellor angela merkel in the elections their main challenger however facing mounting condemnation of the his campaign he's the social democrats not in shorts he's stuck
12:25 pm
at about twenty percent support in all the opinion polls and he's been unable to make any headway against mrs merkel lawrence lee is in calls for looking at how many voters view the different candidates. week after week martin schultz has been working the crowds no lack of passion and little vs belief in a fair germany and a fair europe the crowd waves flags calling for quality jobs and pay a europe that works together. for germany better germany he says we can do this trouble is that's exactly what i'm going to says is he different enough to know. the big problem. is like you know. she's too good. for short spoke for forty five minutes
12:26 pm
without notes fluence and driven in another country he might be seen as really exciting but here we can't get anywhere. common so it's an extremely. respected right across. the time when many german voters not. sure that i'm going to. get. merkel's apparence invincibility is based on her capacity to outflank when a right wing politician says she wants to take in a million refugees how can the left objects. travel around germany and you can see how in this election merkel has managed to find a way of appealing to voters from different constituencies take climate change deep in the black forest villages have been allowed by government to own the wind turbines and sell the electricity from them and their solar panels back to the national grid for profits and the consequence is the traditional left wing greens
12:27 pm
run local government in coalition with the conservative c.d.u. merkel has taken the green idea and used it to her advantage the green. cutting if they want to keep things more than they don't want so just. so back to the rally one of your supporters here just said to me that you're so close to merkel you might as well be married what would you say today if you didn't listen to a speech. one of my supporter said to you he was perhaps speaking with you and not listening to my speech and that's the reason why you think there is there is a difference between you and michael because people say you're too close so she's taken your ground i mean america is not taking my ground i'm going to be doing what i'm suggesting they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery in that case at least not in shultz can take some consolation but his opponent has figured out how
