a latin america editor lucien human reports from. york in his human is and his wife struggle to make a living selling orange juice there among the millions of colombians who voted for . the first left wing presidential candidate with a serious chance of winning. i voted for pedro because i'm tired of the old political class that doesn't care about the poor it's time that the working class gets a chance at a decent life. the former mayor of the capital bubble who was once an m nineteen urban guerilla has tapped into massive discontent with the political establishment he is seen as a champion of the poor and the marginalized but high macassar warns that pedro who is close to venezuela's hugo chavez is a wolf in sheep's clothing i don't think you're going to get them he must be clear petro is a populist disguising as a leftist populism can also be disguised as a center or right wing but in the end it's a strategy to get power and to not let it go. on the opposite extreme of the

ideological divide is evander seen as a younger version of his mentor conservative former president. he represents the status quo and those opposed to historic peace deal signed with park rebels the most. inexperienced but charismatic at this rally he comforted a woman whose missing mother was kidnapped by far ten years ago promising to see that justice is done. the the showdown between the two candidates will undoubtedly impact a still fragile peace agreement that ended more than fifty years of armed conflict with the fark better and ok i have less than three weeks to win over colombians who voted for other more moderate candidates in the first round but many people tell us that they would rather cast a blank ballot rather than vote for a president they don't want. and that gives dougie who won the most votes a decided advantage through is wasting no time trying to assure colombians he won't

take from the rich to give to the poor rather that he will make the poor rich or at least middle class if he can defeat the fear factor he might stand a chance to see in human. well but out of. every such of armed conflict and peace process at the catholic university of columbia and his dispassionate the government's claims about the operation against fox dissidents certainly there is a clear message from the government great the day after the first round of elections to deliver such a lethal blow against a group which has not been clearly identified as a renegade certain and they have been identified as being. doing. extortion threats but it's not very clear. what
6:05 am
their identity yes' they maybe are but it's not clear in that sense was a leaf will blow you don't know if that was a military operation or a land. ration but that certainly puts a high. bar for sure whether it be. or acting in the territory doing things so it such as it storing business and government. let's move on to other news now u.s. president says he'll meet japan's prime minister shinzo if his summit with kim jong un goes ahead with trump spoke to a on the following after which the two leaders agreed that they want the complete and permanent dismantlement of north korea's nuclear program as the latest move in a flurry of diplomatic maneuvers surrounding the possible trumka meeting in singapore next month an american delegation led by veteran diplomat son kim a former nuclear negotiator with pyongyang is holding talks with north korean
6:06 am
officials to prepare for the summit meanwhile south korea says its president could also have a seat at the table it comes after moon surprise meeting with kim at the demilitarized zone on saturday let's get more on this now we're joined by our correspondent andrew thomas who is live for us in the south korean capital seoul suppressions well on the way the summit is going to happen ender. well it certainly feels that in some ways and there are two things going on here those what's happening in singapore now we have a u.s. team and the north korean team both there to sort out logistics protocol security arrangements those sort of practicalities i can't see the big any take ups there so that's going full steam ahead simle taney as to that though is what you referred to the talks going on just on the north korean side of the demilitarized zone just about an hour away from seoul and we saw the u.s. delegation leave about two hours ago from the seoul hotel to take part in more talks they've already going on for two days there as you say by song kim
6:07 am
a very experienced diplomat who used to be the ambassador here he knows the nuclear issue backwards from the u.s. perspective he'll be meeting with north korea's vice foreign minister chase on he again she knows this issue backwards she's a fluent english speaker they will be nothing out the issues to be discussed on the agenda and that is where the sticking point might come because for all the action in terms of preparation unless they do the groundwork they really get to grips with what is meant by denuclearization and finding some common ground when it comes to the definition of that that both the united states going to agree on and north korea can agree on unless they reach that point then i'm not sure that donald trump will be prepared to meet kim jong il and all the other way around because the nuclear as a should means different things to different people but in americans it means unilateral denuclearization by north korea then giving up their weapons full stop from the north korean point of view well they might be talking about something much longer term maybe giving up some missiles but not all the definitions are very very
6:08 am
far apart unless that ground work can be done where the two countries can agree at least as a starting point some middle ground then it's still possible the summit won't yet take place and there isn't long to do about two weeks it's not a lot of time given the complexities of the issues yeah absolutely adjure the americans do seem to agree with seems to agree rather with the japanese promise to pay on one. denuclearization means that they want the complete and permanent disarmament of north korea's nuclear program as we mentioned they spoke on the phone on monday reports that they'll meet in person to discuss all of this before that june twelfth summit what are you hearing about this. well we think the probably meet at the g. seven summit that's happening in cuba back in canada on june the eighth it's possible she's well they might go via washington or on the way back via washington but either way they should meet at the g. seven itself and it's quite possible as well that shinzo are they might go across to singapore to try and get into donald trump say just before they go into their
6:09 am
summit kim jong un and donald trump you can absolutely understand why shinzo are they would want to make sure that his voice is heard donald trump say because donald trump if this summit happens will want it to be seen as a success almost at any cost he will want to walk out and sell for a commitment a big deal from kim jong un but what he thinks is a great deal and it might be from the united states point of view perhaps a total instant giving up of weapons that could ever reach the u.s. mainland well that would not satisfy shinzo so remember japan is far more vulnerable to north korea than the united states mainland is it doesn't take long range missiles to get to japan so shinzo all day will be very keen that donald trump doesn't give up too much in order to achieve some sort of victory in his eyes from his talks with kim jong il at the same time president moon of south korea who in many ways has brought kim jong un and donald trump together he's been integral to this whole process and recently a saturday meeting kim jong il in person hugging him looking like him on the
6:10 am
surface anyway kim jong un's best diplomatic friend while at the same time having donald trump say he wants to get involved as well it's very likely he'll travel to singapore he probably won't be in the bilateral meeting between kim jong un and donald trump at the beginning but it's quite possible he might meet in the minutes or hours afterwards also in singapore so all these leaders from asian countries and of course singapore and thing of course prime minister as well they are after all she will probably to meet in his country he'll also want to talk about kim jong un and will trump for a summit so all these leaders all focused on june the twelfth in singapore if it still is if it happens and thank you very much for that for now that's added thomas for the latest from self-acting. to italy now where the president has appointed and interim prime minister to head a technocrat government. a former i.m.f. official has been tasked with the job as appointment comes after the president's veto to efforts by two populist parties to form
6:11 am
a coalition government has more. political convulsions in italy meet the new prime minister designate not a political figure but a former international monetary fund official. i must underline that the government will maintain a neutrality a total neutrality with respect to the electoral debate. must now come up with a workable list of ministers but he's unlikely to survive a confidence vote in a parliament stacked against him so the new government will likely become a lame duck interim government until fresh elections in the autumn on the weekend president sergio rejected the euro skeptic finance minister proposed by the five star movement northern league coalition dashing their hopes of becoming europe's first far right populist government. last night was the darkest hour in italy's democracy president chose to ignore his constitutional prerogatives and prevent
6:12 am
from power political force the five star movement which received eleven million votes they've been calls for mass protests and the president's impeachment as head of state the latter seems constitutionally unlikely but it's a nasty turn that sets the scene for a potentially ugly standoff we are going to see throughout the next three months is the overarching the people versus the. establishment that with the head of state for the first time becoming the main target of the entire campaign there's also the economy to worry about italy's cost of borrowing is rising with the political uncertainty if the country's sky high debt were to become unserviceable then real crisis would arrive in the euro zone's third largest economy add to that a debate that will only grow louder perhaps angrier now about italy's membership of
6:13 am
the eurozone as the nationalist northern league and ante a stab. five star movement vie for an even bigger slice of the next electoral pint carlow culture really did his best to calm the waters. in the past few days tensions have increased on the financial markets you know that the spread has increased but italian economy is still growing and the budget remains under control i can assure you that a government. will guarantee a prudent. public accounts. in italy political instability is a fact of life so they'll be little surprise about these twists and turns but no less anxiety over the outcome. well our in scotland half is a professor of economics at boston university and he says he needs a decisive government after a long spell of uncertainty. italy has gone with demagogues in the
6:14 am
past. go back to recently where scone first corny people that out you know clear out positive direction going to trying to energize the masses with no clear again new direction so it raises the concern about italy. policy that made some progress in recent years it's been very slow growth has been very slow i'm one that has come down from about fourteen percent drop in twenty fourteen down to about one percent today but many people who are especially young people are still unemployed so i understand the frustration but the way forward is not. to bring yourself from the rest of the of your trading partners to our current vice isolate yourself it's not to eliminate the your move away from the euro stable currency and restart that you lira and then that with placing which is really the result and and to follow the government debt so you
