5:03 pm
work on all levels the national political and economic levels being supported by the voters and everyone has seen that in all parts of the country all right let's go live to our correspondent. at the levees capitol and there we heard the prime minister talking about a new era a new phase what does that new era look like. he's basically trying to say martin that he's looking forward to reaching out to the different components of the political establishment to form a new government side that how you just suffered a major setback in the election by losing seats compared to two thousand and nine however he says that he's confident he's going to be able to bridge the gap you know full for many decades elections eleven have been the dominance of the establishment political parties but there's been a different angle to the story which is basically a civil society candidate saying that they can offer a new turn to to to the monopoly of the mainstream political parties today they are
5:04 pm
protesting in front of the ministry of interior they basically say that the election is one laws by every calamities and joining me to talk more about that is . how she is an activist she's a byte journalist and she's been a civil society candidate thank you very much indeed for joining us jumana thank you why you are protesting what's wrong with the elections. so many things we've had seven thousand records of violations yesterday. one of them concerns me directly yesterday all. all the parties involved in these elections in beirut won the district where i was running and nouns as early as ten pm or eleven pm that the civil society has won two seats i'm talking about competing parties they announce that the civil society has managed to won two seats mine well i acted beyond and then i waited till three p.
5:05 pm
am this morning to be sure that i won and i and i announced that on my on my social media and then i wake up this morning and i'm not a winner anymore you lost my a margin of one hundred seat hundred the. votes i'm going to ask you a question what's next for you is it the end of it to. do you think he will continue building up the momentum first of all i didn't lose here because we're going to fight this because. there's something wrong when. all the teams say that we won and then there are boxes that disappear and then there are delegates that that are a taken out of the room when the votes are being counted so i didn't lose yet let's not let's not go there to you your colleagues will be on the election this is a first move she managed to break through the ceiling of the dominance of the establishment political parties what's next for the civil society the huge issues that level of faces i didn't pull unemployment poverty for services. what are you
5:06 pm
going to push for in the near future definitely this is a start for us i mean like what we did yesterday was a huge no and the face of the mainstream political parties and the vicious circle they have put lebanon on inside for many many years so this is just the start and i'm very proud that paula won and and i'm sure she's going to do a great job thank you very much indeed china thank you martin quite interesting times here not only the activists that you see this particular area here they say that this is their moment this is their time and they hoping to build that moment of for them to be able to shape the future of the country but this is going to be a long way to go you can hear. their rallying support they're gathering here and they say this is not going to be the end for their project they are lobbying for
5:07 pm
a change in the political life. they say they are a minority but however they hope that tomorrow they will be able to rally more support and build support to change the realities of the ground and shape the future of the country. i hope you can hear me i'm just wondering how the gains that have been won by hezbollah and their allies how does that change the practical political landscape on a day to day basis in lebanon. it definitely consolidate their gains and they will have a bigger say in forming the new government in lebanon they are practically the king makers now eleven and with the massive games debate this but also a spectacular game by the lebanese forces led by simmias. to other political parties to mainstream political parties wondered presenting the questions we see the party of michel aoun and sad that had either the future suffered suffered some
5:08 pm
setback and therefore we're going to see in the near future is a long track to political talks between all those voters to try to form a national unity government because you know martin ultimately it would be difficult for hezbollah to form a government without sat how do you decide how do the laws for whether he remains the most popular sunni leader eleven and without him the next government will be really vulnerable and weak so i think by the end of the day wisdom has to prevail and what we're going to be is just a replay cation of the same status quo there has been a dog in political life in lebanon which is basically the key players in lebanon's have to come together and form a government of national unity and where hashem thank you i have. live in beirut now that amid putin has been sworn in as russia's president for the fourth time his
5:09 pm
inauguration for a six year term came two months after an overwhelming majority of voters backed him in an election which are in face no real serious challenges and dissipate is offered to keep dmitri medvedev on as prime minister in his new cabinet very chalons is in moscow. well choosing dmitri medvedev to carry on in his role as prime minister is perhaps no real surprise we know that putin is fairly conservative in his appointments to government positions and we also know because of the many years that these two men side by side with each other the putin more or less trusts maybe eight of remember that back in two thousand and eight when hooten reached the constitutional limits of his two allowable terms as president he basically just then swaps with made v.a.d. of so he putin became prime minister medvedev became president that lasted for four
5:10 pm
years and then in two thousand and twelve piece and came back to the presidency again this plays into i think questions about what is going to happen over the next six years the problems that putin is going to face and one of them is what happens at the end of this six year term because he is again about to reach that constitutional limits of two terms in office all right now we can till tomorrow to see makowski from washington d.c. he's a nonresident senior fellow at the atlantic council his specializes in russian politics what does another six years of putin at the helm of the kremlin mean for you. you know if there's one thing we know about vladimir putin is last eighteen years in power is what's going to continue you're going to see a continually aggressive russian foreign policy abroad which president putin will couch against the west and again in shrine in russia's inherent right to be a great power you're going to continue to see
5:11 pm
a clampdown on russian opposition and home and you're going to also true try to see an attempt of the russian government to bring more economic social health care services to its citizens an effort that has been difficult to match but again what you're going to see is continuity and you're going to continue to see real challenges of having the united states and russia find a relationship that is where president putin wants it which is again to enshrine russia as a great power but overall i think you're going to see more of the same as time passes in russia you see more of the same and from the kremlin's point of view i would imagine that they would put forward the counter argument that an expansionist nato is what has led them into into moving more assertively should we say on the international stage but to keep the when it comes to its backyard like crimea and eastern ukraine. you know when president putin came back to power in his last term
5:12 pm
he increasingly is used the threat of the west and the threat of the united states as a distraction for the russian people and to showcase that russia has to respond you know nato has an enlarged for a long time it doesn't place a threat to russian interests but of course its actions in ukraine and syria are couched to the russian people as a direct counter to the united states and direct counter to the west and i think that has played well for putin particularly as russia faces economic difficulty as well as infrastructure and health care system that continues to not be able to provide for the needs of its citizens so absolutely russia will continue to use the specter of a threat from the united states and a threat from the west to further cement putin's hold on power and i think that has worked for president putin and will continue to work for him and again because of a fundamental obstacle in interests i think you're going to continue to see challenges in u.s. russian relations and frankly speaking i think putin is ready for that dynamic and
5:13 pm
his will harness it to further russian aims all right mucks him across ski thank you very much. we've got a lot more to come here including what could be a breakthrough in south sudan's civil war the implications of an opposition factions decision to change sides also this lee poll seven billion dollars into starbucks to sell coffee the coffee chain's products around the world. welcome back we're looking at some fairly heavy rain across parts of southern china during the course of choose stay standing through towards hong kong north of out to are not too bad a few showers there for food issue and certainly quite wet across much of taiwan at the moment as we come into indochina we've got

5:16 pm
tough is it take a look at the top stories here at al-jazeera the policy of lebanon's prime minister has lost a third of its seats in parliament after sunday's vote despite the loss in the sunni leader saad hariri is on course to stay as prime minister under the sectarian power sharing system. as paula supposes in lebanon the celebrating the unofficial preliminary results the shia group and its allies ascent to claim over the hall for the seats in parliament. putin has been sworn in as russia's president for the full time he becomes the longest serving leader since he won almost eighty percent of the votes when reelected in march he's already been in power as president or prime minister for eighteen years. now france and germany valuing to stick to the terms of the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal even if the u.s. withdrawals they and other european powers a lot being president trump not to end america's involvement in the agreement as he prepares to make the decision in less than a week now the british foreign secretary boris johnson is in washington and he's
5:17 pm
made his case in the new york times he wrote of all the options we have for ensuring that iran never gets a nuclear weapon this pact offers the fewest disadvantages it has weaknesses certainly but i'm convinced they can be remedied i'm sure of one thing every available turnitin is worse the wisest course would be to improve the handcuffs rather than break them right white house correspondent kimberly how he joins us now and said boris johnson then kimberly joins his long line of europeans that have been beating a path to washington d.c. in a bid to try to get donald trump to stay on board how do you how do we think they're fairing where does it lie at the moment. well we've just had a tweet from the u.s. president and things don't appear to be very hopeful at the moment donald trump in just the last couple of minutes talking about the former secretary of state under
5:18 pm
the obama administration john kerry who of course helped to negotiate the j c.p.o. a donald trump writes the united states does not need john kerry's possibly illegal shadel diplomacy on the very badly negotiated iran deal he was the one that created this mess in all caps in the first place exclamation point so we certainly know where donald trump stands in terms of how he feels about the deal certainly we heard this on the campaign trail martine there are a few days left before that may twelfth deadline and as you point out european leaders happen for weeks at both the high level and bit behind the scenes working very hard with us the u.s. side to try and negotiate and come to some sort of agreement to keep the united states in the agreement beyond the twelfth deadline but certainly there have been some discouraging sides not only that there is this even though boris johnson is here in the united states right now and he isn't meeting with donald trump directly but we know he is meeting with the secretary of state paled the national security
5:19 pm
advisor john bolton and also the vice president mike pence even as those meetings are taking place even boris johnson as you point out has been acknowledging that there is a recognition that donald trump has a point that there are widespread concerns about the jay c.p.o. way that the twenty fifteen agreement doesn't address some things that donald trump has brought up like concerns about the sunset clause ballistic missile testing even concerns about iran's military presence in the region so the argument has been though let's try and work with this deal make something better to address those concerns but so far it doesn't appear that that convincing is working but there are some days to come still before that deadline and decision has to be made indeed because president trump has to decide whether to continue with the wave. may the twelfth and as you say that's just days away. too refused to do that in the tenor of the deal. right and
5:20 pm
a lot of people not just in the united states but around the world have been very concerned about some of the recent cabinet changes inside the united states as the president makes that decision certainly mike pompei or a big critic of the deal. john bolton the national security advisor very hawkish even was penned an offer ed in the wall street journal making the case to strike north korea but also in the same sort of op ed talking about sort of linking the two as having these concerns so there certainly is someone weighing in very heavily and this is the concern of course for many as this clock is now ticking all right kimberly thanks very much kimberly how could a white house correspondent. the rebels in yemen of launch more missiles into saudi arabia they were aiming at several military targets in the nine drawn border region economic sites including oil storage areas were also said to be hit so to arabia says it said defense systems were able to shoot down some of the missiles and also
