7:19 pm
the kurdish nation no one else can do and no one else will so what now commentator he says it's the first time in kurdish history a leader of his caliber gives up his post in this manner a possible scenario is that we may well through a parliamentary system with no president. president with a symbolic president. with very little power. of course something like this. with a position like this i don't know who's going to be the next prime minister. i can bet. with him being here present. and that's the bottom line even if massoud barzani isn't the president he will continue to wield enormous influence i think by him stepping back he's allowing his nephew. much of amber's zani to lead the negotiations went back then you know the top priority now in kurdistan is not forming

7:21 pm
for months now these workers have been clearing sludge and other contaminants it's about trying to mop up that oil which is which is free within the environment within the mangroves on the water but i think more important than that phase one is about quantifying and designing the more robust phase two cleanup which will be about physically agitating cleaning flushing and where necessary exit to treatment of the sediments mike was part of the united nations environment team that reported on the extent of the pollution progress is slow. after moving to top soil and the devery workers try to wash the oil from the mud and riverbed then the poaching all of its profit by the boom is installed right over there as the oil float the process will then move up river this needs to be defeated in some four

7:23 pm
so if you ask me what i do going to be i would tell you no but shall try strongly these concerns there's a clear determination to make this work the impact to a clear not is not just from the spills that we're talking about there's been lots of illegal activities around us because you know and all that and that's also one of the biggest concerns we have the illegal activities he's talking about include some water as you have the pipelines and the theft of oil and that is still happening comedy grease. board all in nigeria's delta. a multi races and multi religion rally has been held in minerals capital gang goal organized by the governing national league for democracy party to counter hate speech it is the third rally the government has held since the military crackdown began on the hinge of muslims florence louis has more this is the last of a series of interfaith prayer events organized by the ruling party the national

7:27 pm
a sense that prime minister hun sen feels emboldened by the significant financial support this country receives from china but china is also interested in stability and if that's under threat it may start to question the actions of the cambodian government. but there's no sign that the government will back down despite international condemnation rights groups want kim released immediately. we want more clarity. but more importantly we want to end their charges are dropped we are also concerned there will be more victims on the where's the election bid. draws nearer without a credible opposition the election may be largely meaningless and would almost certainly see one cynic stand his rule on the sixteenth of november the court will begin to decide if they will grant the government's wish and dissolve the cambodian national rescue party wayne hay al jazeera phnom penh. six finalists are vying for
