2:02 pm
i. think i'm breaking news from the scene explosion at a mosque in the eastern province of cost of a glass joins us on the phone from kabul jennifer tell us more about what we know milor we're local officials are saying that the explosion has killed at least ten people and wounded twenty that number may go up more it's it's a depressingly familiar story here it's the second large attack in a week course here in kabul there was a bomb attack but this mosque was being used as a voter registration center and that is something we have seen over and over just two weeks ago about sixty people were killed here in kabul as they were lined up to register to vote ahead of parliamentary elections to be held you know cobra here scheduled to be held in october here the taleban have also shut down a number of schools used as voter registration centers definitely a campaign to disrupt the voter registration process ahead of those elections so
2:03 pm
again an explosion at a mosque in hosts in eastern afghanistan that that number could go higher yes i can and will come come check back in with you as we get more information on that blast denver was saying in the eastern afghanistan in costa province that so far has killed ten people jennifer thank you. what is lebanon's first parliamentary election in nine years since the last vote in two thousand and nine a lot of happens a war neighboring syria which has led to the arrival of more than a million refugees and then there's a regional rivalry between saudi arabia and iran only inevitably feeds into this highly politically polarized society and the country is using a new system based on forceful representation for the vote present michel own costs and ballots in bahrain just a short while ago and there we saw a prime minister saad hariri and voting booth in favor. oh charlotte god willing old every lebanese citizen has to vote and perform their national jussi
2:04 pm
the lebanese can vote for whoever they wish this will make the country stronger. than a lot of has more from they wait. there is enthusiasm we're at just one of the polling stations in beirut and as you can see behind me there is a high voter turnout and we have been visiting a number of polling stations across the capital and the scene is the same people are hoping for change like you mentioned there really many firsts in this election this is the first time in nine years this is the first time an election is being held under a new law the proportional representation system which in one way or the other it's intricacies is allowing independence the chance to grab seats and this is really the first time that we are seeing so many independent candidates competing in this electoral battle challenging the political establishment the ruling political class who have been in power for years if not decades and some even since the days of the
2:05 pm
civil war but the independent candidates are a reality and that is they will not be able to grab a majority of seats they're hoping to grab a few seats which would be a small but meaningful change in their view and we have been talking to people here and i've been listening most of them have been telling us we want change the young and the old because their concerns really are about unemployment about the economy yes they're worried about the war the spillover of the war in syria and the refugees but at the end of the day these people want to make ends meet and they feel that many in the political establishment have done little to improve the state of the economy but they're but in reality going to be very very difficult to challenge a ruling class who have had them an awfully who have had the money they have the funding they're able to exploit their power really for electoral gains they're able
2:06 pm
to provide services to the people because most of those who are running the candidates who are running are in office even the prime minister himself the interior minister who's supposed to be running the still. action campaign he is a candidate so they use their power for elektra gain and some people here are the traditional voters who will tell you that we will vote for the political parties in power because they protect us there's still this feeling of this that that people are belong to their sect before they belong to their nation and that's why it's going to be very very hard for the independent candidates to really break this monopoly. well one of our joins us now live from the play and i should this is the first election in so long but in this highly divided country as we just hearing there from zaina is there much excitement about the polls way eula. there is there is this excitement about what could come out of this election but those also anxiety because this is the first time deliveries are using the
2:07 pm
proportional representation i was today touring different districts in the middle which is a predominantly shia area than to a predominantly sunni area now i mean and it's quite interesting because in the past the former are allies of the fourteenth of march movements which is the future movement the three branches equivalent of the president bashir or the lebanese forces and the khattab used to run together this time because of the new election system they're competing against each other were here particularly in the future movement of saddle heavy along with the free patrie as equipment are competing against former allies this is something which is definitely going to create a new political reality this is what people are pretty much concerned about that this is why the establishment political parties are concerned about an outcome that could challenge their dominance over the political decision making process in
2:08 pm
lebanon this explain why you see some excitement but at the same time you see those of undecided about the future ok there's another new political reality isn't there that's the emergence of independent civic society candidates and hundreds of thousands of people voting for the first time to what extent are they going to be turning towards these new candidate that they say. we're talking about almost eight hundred thousand people there were some sort of a silent majority eleven and. the they've been frustrated over the political deadlock cont'd from two thousand and nine all the way to two thousand and seventeen when the political parties agreed to for this election these are basically uncharted territory new voices we don't know exactly whether they will ultimately vote for their own sex and tax or political parties
2:09 pm
a religious leaders or they're going to vote for the alternative voices we're seeing now a new trend eleven which is basically aggressive independent voices and members of the civil society who are saying that we are the ones who have the potential to tap into the growing discontent in lebanon come up strong united and force a new way out for the political crisis in lebanon but you know laura ultimately hezbollah the future movement the free press retic movement the finances of it at the lebanese forces have been entrenched for almost four decades eleven and it's going to be extremely difficult at this particular time to. drive them away but i think if you if the independents can manage to create a crack in the political system today tomorrow would be a different day lebanon certainly be watching and waiting for those results hashing thanks very much in the now iran's president says the u.s.

2:24 pm
has a wider goal in mind if you consider the strategy that the united arab emirates have driven in yemen over the past three years actually we see that there is a pattern of war going which doesn't necessarily directly concern fighting the who these or reinstating the higher the government as it was said in two thousand and fifteen when the coalition started but it's more about securing a morality interest in the south of yemen access to the indian ocean access to the bubble munda yemen has suffered three years of will in which thousands of people have died the yemeni government now based in the southern port city of aden relies on the coalition's ab power which is why criticism of the u.a.e. by ministers is rare but not unheard of three months ago a minister accused the u.a.e. of trying to fragment the country by creating what he called separate regional and try. a saudi delegation has been sent to lead this latest crisis in
2:25 pm
a rule that gets me complicated by the day victoria gayton be out there. one of cambodia's strongest opposition parties is trying to withdraw from july's election the grassroots democratic party says the vote is unlikely to be free or fair and it only emerged as a challenger after the largest opposition party was dissolved by a report from the capital from pan. one of cambodia's newest political parties believes it's the only one that truly lives up to its name representatives of the grassroots democratic party are related from the ground up with supporters and members voting for who they want to stand in july general election but party leaders say there are undemocratic forces at work in cambodia we had it before there is from but in the next. one until monday if the so there's and it's getting worse so you don't think that this and it's in this what's right for the price of pain the previous largest opposition party the cambodian national rescue party was
2:26 pm
dissolved in november accused of plotting to overthrow the government its leader kim is in jail charged with treason critics say it's part of a campaign orchestrated by the ruling cambodian people's party which is afraid of losing power the opposition performed well in the last general and local elections including who won his seat in phnom penh only to lose it when his party was banned and. most people used to support my party in this area told me that if there is no camborne international rescue party in the election they want to go to. the party headquarters which is owned by another former leader sam rainsy has been seized by the court which may sell it unless he pays a million dollar fine for defaming the prime minister when sam rainsy has called on cambodians to boycott the election there has been international condemnation of the deteriorating situation here with forty five countries signing
2:27 pm
a letter calling for the opposition to be reinstated and for kim to be freed while the united states and the european union have withdrawn funding for july's votes the government says it isn't concerned about the criticism and words intervene in the judicial process they can voice but it's best not to flicks. of the spirits of all people of those countries so it's still they wired negative on earth today but the future they will come back to earth as normal. the grass roots party has already faced intimidation with signs and banners taken down in some places apparently by government supporters but in a way a new political force may be exactly what the government needs a strong opposition to give the election some credibility but becoming too strong may also come with risk when hey al jazeera phnom penh. live
