thank you for joining us russia type writer one is returning to office with sweeping new powers after an election victory that he's calling a win for democracy he secured enough votes in take his presidential poll to avoid a runoff against his main opposition rival whose party vowed to continue its struggle to monitor child reports among her. yet again reject taber erdogan is victorious this success however will taste a lot sweeter for the man who's now won more than ten successive national polls since his ak party came to power in two thousand and two sunday's vote was a gamble by early one who hold for the early elections at a time when turkey's currency was at the weakest it's been in years but it seems to have paid off for the man whose name has now become almost synonymous with that of his country addressing his supporters undescribed sunday as
a victory for all of turkey will say see me go really be the winners of this election are the eighty one million turkish citizens of this country each and everyone is a winner in this election everybody exercised their rights by going to the ballot boxes and casting their votes and i want to thank everybody you are writing history going into the vote it seemed that the galvanized opposition could prevent iran from winning in the first round forcing a runoff that could possibly pose a bigger threat to his quest to become the first president under the new constitution the main concern democrat or an injury of the c.h.p. had tried to garner support from all sections of society he would the religious basis by public you joining prayers in some cities and attempted to reach out to the right wing blocs by promising to expel millions of syrian refugees if elected but as large as injuries grows where or those of erdogan in the end what mattered were the numbers of ballots cost in their favor turks will have
a proud tradition of high voter turnout did not disappoint early indications were that more than eighty six percent of them participated. well our two ons are party reply and with the presidential victory there will be disappointments over their parliamentary performance with the a.k.p. losing the two thirds supermajority they once held only managing to secure a simple majority with the help of their nationalist m h p allies the big winners in the parliamentary votes were the kurdish h d p winning over fifty seats making this new legislative body more diverse than the previous one and it's that who it is and that many in turkey will hope can help bridge the political divide that continues to affect turkish society speaking to the nation i don't seem to understand those concerns. we're. no one should be discriminated against in this country because of their belief because of their gender or because of their origins we will not allow this. your position will be
disappointed that they were unable to at least force a second round of voting they will take heart however from their improved performance in the parliament and the fact that's a relatively unknown person like i was able to secure a thirty percent in such an important election with this victory out obama has not only hope for once again. the right household edition of the day the by becoming the first ever became president he is now right you. have to believe in the family all of them to work to come out of the mold that different because of. recent history now because you refuse to will be turning to look for him to deal with. the social problem this is. a little unfair on. well let's look at the numbers in detail now i don't want to be more than fifty two
percent of the vote in a field of six candidates why i'm enjoying his nearest rival poll thirty percent eight percent of votes went to the imprisoned leader of the. parliamentary vote party it's leading with forty three percent the c.h.p. is second with nearly twenty three percent and the d.p. will be the third largest party with just over eleven percent simcoe gauging reaction now in a sample. the reactions for the election so far has been present. in the newspapers as they are mostly in directly controlled by the government and their supporters they have been saying that storms and he is reelected as the president peoples a lot. one majority one surprise for the election was the unexpected success for the nationalists and they should be party which was allied with the ruling out party for the presidential election to support them to gain the majority as an
alliance so that wasn't expected and the main opposition newspaper gymboree it which had considered victories with the government for the one of the house here for the last one and a healthier as the headline as the government is trapped by the wolf wolf is the is the nickname for the turkish nationalists actually this and these are the reactions by the people but on the other hand the opposition party who saw that very high performance just right before the election is kind of disappointed but they have announced that they have accepted the results which was declared announced by the elect higher electorial board last night and the president and the presidential candidate for the main opposition is going to hold a press conference he's going to talk about the results but they say they will struggle against the one man rule will continue on democratic platforms and to burn a smith now was more reaction from the main opposition. there's frustration and
disappointment here the republican people's party at the t.h.b. better hope that their candidate more i mean jay would at least a forced a second round runoff vote to do that they needed to deprive stop present one getting more than fifty percent plus warm vote it appears that one. in j. has not really got over about thirty percent of the vote so a lot of disappointment here that the opposition will say that they never started off this election with a level playing field much of the television news time was devoted to the act party and president and they got about sixty seven hours coverage last month compared to seven hours coverage for example for the republican people's ball. those so they say they were facing an uphill battle all the way they might take some consolation from the suggestion that the out party has been to deprive its overall majority in
parliament it will have to work with this far right m.h.d. party to help pass legislation through parliament and those in favor of the out party and also the pro kurdish h.e.p.a. is represented in parliament so that may may suggest that is a very representative selection of turkish society in parliament but above all yes frustration and disappointment here the c.h.p. that we're not going to see a second round runoff here for the presidency of church. over turkey's southern border u.s. backed forces controlling the syrian city of raka have declared a state of emergency and imposed a three day care a few commanders say they have information that i saw fighters who infiltrated the city are planning a bombing campaign i saw was pushed by the syrian democratic forces last october people in iraq have been complaining about discrimination from the s.d.f. which is dominated by kurdish fighters. italy's interior minister met taylor salvini is in libya for talks on europe's migration crisis that either of the far

migration that we want to protect our borders and that we are all responsible for all topics it cannot be the case that some on a deal with primary migration and others only with secondary migration everybody is responsible for everything wherever possible we want european solutions what is not possible we want to bring those who are willing to gather and find a common framework for action the issue has been brought into sharp focus by scenes like these filmed aboard the vessel m.v. lifeline in the mediterranean two hundred twenty six people rescued from the sea but stuck on the ship as different countries refused to accept them as it were a metaphor for the entire migrant crisis it is extremely difficult and i would say it's even harder now than it might have been two or three years ago because in the interim we've seen a number of government changes including a number of hardline government. but also we've seen a. arising of positions between countries based on their experience of migration
italy has proposed a ten point plan to try to drive the discussion forward suggesting different countries accept reception centers as part of a commitment to abandon the previous dublin regulation whereby refugees must claim asylum in their arrival country as he left brussels on sunday prime minister giuseppe conlon tweeted his happiness at the way the talks had progressed when this meeting was first called it was with the hope that sixteen member states might be able to iron out some of the problems and then present solutions to the twenty eight member state meeting that takes place on thursday and friday this week the question is will there be any kind of compromise acceptable to the full e.u. summit dominic kane al-jazeera brussels and e.u. foreign ministers are meeting in luxembourg ahead of that summit in brussels on friday migration isn't on the official agenda for monday's gathering but is likely to come up during informal talks the u.s. foreign policy chief is urging member countries to put more money towards its
african trust fund. it has proven to be useful it has results and this is why we are asking for more money from member states to the trust fund africa and i believe yesterday the exchanges were positive in this direction i hope that member states will put money in the trust fund for africa because this has been the instrument with which we have managed to put in place very important work that has growth results that needs to be strengthened but that would require money. still ahead on al-jazeera environmentalists in australia say the government failed to protect the great barrier reef what they're calling on the u.n. to do about it hoping to make peace through art painters and muslims put on an i joined exhibition in kashmir. and it's great fun. the weather sponsored

water quality of the great barrier reef which is very poor and the poor water quality is exacerbated by deforestation in the great barrier reef catchment and unfortunately it's been a huge increase in the ration clearing of the catchment and this training government is just not done enough to stand that problem well what should it be doing and how exactly is land clearing affecting the reef and why do you believe it's turned turnbull's responsibility the government responsibility to do something about. well what happens when they ended cleavage which is mainly what breaking development is that at least three so with a certain and you get a heavy rainfall it results in the sort of washing off into what of course is this inflow into the great barrier reef and joshua lat long line didn't sit in the water. and carlton other repugnant need clean water to

committee and twenty twenty know that that was hard of a decision made in twenty fifteen however the decision in twenty fifteen was because of the state of the water quality in the great barrier reef so it's a high priority for the world heritage committee to see the a string government really tackle its of the lottery the queensland state government has recently asked laws to improve the protection of education the catchment that we need is training government to also do the same thing so we want the road here just send it to. government and say what can you explain what you are doing to protect the great prairie from deforestation so as to improve what equality and avoid the great very being the student danger in trying to train the next ultimately what we want to do we want to see the rich protect we don't want to be on the endangered list that damages tourism and the damages jobs and of course it damages the psychotic world
