the votes. mr felix is provisionally declared the elected president of the democratic republic of congo let's go to our correspondent how to metastases joining us live from the capital kinshasa the electoral commission saying that felix. has one hundred but that is already being disputed by the country's powerful catholic church what says it's telling show that. anyone. exactly we just outside the building when martin for you one of the opposition leaders is going to be he's going to get his take on this result like you did people like the catholic church expected him to win the election and he did not know what is their reaction going to be more crucially what is his reaction going to be easy going to get that result or is he going to challenge it in court which he has every right to do so if you think you can actually win it on the streets of . being supporters on the committee or coming out on the streets were writing it
that is why in some of them actually surprised that he did win because they thought the ruling party would do everything it could to make sure they can do that emmanuel she died little action he didn't and he did a lot of people really shocked by the result yeah but again mixed feeling in the air obviously those who are happy that he won are celebrating what is for you lou going to say when he speaks in a few minutes a little. how did as you mentioned people would expecting president joseph kabila is chosen successor emmanuel dari to do well in the polls they were also expected. to what do we know about kerry and how much of a surprise is this because he wasn't a frontrunner in the polls. now you once and he was pretty much riding on the popularity of his late father to the kiddie who died last so he could go from here
and you try to revive the party try to galvanize support in the head of the election people thought he was actually doing. that for example we have a fair amount of support and support is the ones that we saw in north the last few minutes of breaking on the street but but. also a lot of what not to think about all the way in the country how. to react when they accept this result and of course you've got the ruling party supporters someone who really believed that big handed it was going to win then of course the hormone ruling party how are they going to react and is they going to be some kind of protest in the coming hours when the thank you thank you very much for that. to her with any developments on the story from the democratic republic of congo thank you heard a. spokesman for the advocacy group of friends of the congo and he says the results
marked the start of a new era. again it is quite a surprise anything should bury id science is a new beginning we still have to wait to see what will come out from people context the results and hope that the process is going to be much more a keener than the electoral process so that we die end up in a situation that surprising because people don't feel represented in the result they just be in the release now it is quite a shock for everyone but it is a new beginning so let's wait to see what will happen we have any court challenge and the final hour counts on the votes it is a nice time as we are discussing the science formation is coming i live real time as we look at it much closer will just we'll be able to decipher if those results are credible but as we discussed there lection are a naive and with the result the fact that the chosen candidate from the cure and
regime can be allowed to not win is a small victory that accompanies people can claim for the past two years we've defeat and the numbers in the streets they were able to push the what is government to organize elections now with these results now people have to try to readjust and figure out is it really do we know or not what about those who didn't but vote and can the people at the end of this electoral process actually trust that there will be determinant factor are if people will heed to streets in demonstrations for their voice to be heard are that we use it as a new beginning for the r c folk a better life for many police as move on to other news nondefense through people have been counter more anti-government demonstrations and saddam protests are angry about rising prices and the on state of economy i want president all to step down the paper man's defiant have
a morgan has more from catherine. oh. for three weeks now this has been the scene in many parts of sudan people coming out to protest against president all model bashir is twenty nine year rule and demanding that he step down was the work of whether we are under a dictatorship for thirty years they have used religion to stand power now is the right time for people to come out and protest you can see them firing tear gas it could even be aware we citizens just want our rights to eat and drink and live with dignity like anyone else in the world. on wednesday thousands came out once again to protest in amman as they attempted to make their with village state of assembly to handle memo demanding that the president resign was the police responded using tear gas was and live ammunition to disperse the crowd. a scene different than the one in the capital khartoum where the first pro-government rally was held
since protests began in mid december president bashir addressed his supporters blaming the protest on what he described as external force has let you know there's a human we are all together hand in hand joining forces to maintain stability however some are adopting foreign agendas being operated by outside forces in a mes to the saddam however we reiterate those who are seeking power they are welcome however there is only one route to grab power it is the ballot box it is only through transparent free elections and it's up to you the sudanese people to decide. but elections are more than a year away and those protesting say they want him to step down sooner rather than later one thing it's done is in a way a reflection of the state of the nation demonstrations against the government on one side demanding president almost step down on a pro-government rally on the other with the president and his supporters defined in the face of those protests. by rights groups say forty people have been killed in anti-government protests the government puts the figure at nineteen with
protesters echoing slogans from the arab spring there are illusions that toppled governments in neighboring countries some analysts say the current state of the country could last for some time so. this will continue for a while until the government finds an economic and political solution because it's not just the economy of that has driven people to protest the government has to offer some compromise or the demonstrations will continue. and never in his twenty nine year rule have a protest against him lasted for. president bashir may be determined to stay in power. but these protesters say they are just as determined to see him go he will more going on to zero. to the u.s. now with president donald trump has walked out of a meeting with the democrats again refused to fund the border with mexico the standoff acing the government shutdown now for two and a half weeks mike hanna has more from washington d.c. . the bill is passed another spending bill is passed in the house significantly
ake republicans break ranks and vote to the democrat majority but there's little possibility this legislation will go to the senate the republican leader there insistent he will not allow the passage of any bill that does not have the approval of the president who continues to insist he will veto any measure that does not include funding for the border wall you can never have border security or less you have a steel barrier. a concrete law whatever you want but without it you'll never have you can have the greatest challenge in the world you will never ever in a million years you will not have more secure capital the majority of federal employees who will not be paid this week would have to disagree some being urged to speak out by democrats we are the faces behind this shutdown we are the real people who work in the bureau of prisons and the transportation security administration
and other federal agencies today doing so without federal pay. democrat leaders went to the white house for another round of talks but the meeting ended in failure when the president abruptly walked out then sending out this tweet in reference to democrat leaders of senate and house just left a meeting with chuck and nancy a total waste of time he says i asked what's going to happen in thirty days if i quickly opened things up are you going to approve border security which includes a wall all steel beriah nancy said no i said bye bye nothing else works it's cold out here and at the temperature wasn't much warmer in the situation room again we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way and he just walked out of the meeting the vice president asserted that was the democrats who were blocking reopening the government not president trump yes speaker pelosi that if we opened things up quickly if we reopen the government quickly would she be willing to agree to
funding for a wall or a barrier on the southern border and when she said no the president said good bye. earlier the president walked up to the hill for a meeting with the republican caucus and deny there was any division within the party the democrats have lost support there is tremendous republican support unwavering as you probably know thank you very much but the eight republicans who wavered and voted with democrats in the house sent a different signal that the standoff is no longer one on purely partisan lines and mike is joining us live now the words temper tantrum being thrown around more and more now mike was this a was a genuine emotional reaction from the president trying for is that part of some negotiating tactic. well our concert big to the psychosis of president trump but clearly there have been these temper tantrums and clearly president trump is
taking this very very personally he has been insistent that he wants the money for the wall it was a campaign pledge and as time goes by each seems to getting more and more adamant that he will not in any way have any form of compromise the team's playing thursday to the border part of. operation would appear to attempt to convince the american people of the necessity for such a wall he has been going on such a campaign he appeared on national television tuesday night and one of his aides saying that he will use that megaphone to continue to sell the idea of a wall to the wider public but he hasn't succeeded in selling the idea to all his republicans at least eight of them as i said in that report voted with democrats today and incidentally one of those who will not be with president trump on his border tour tomorrow is a representative for the macallan region which is where trump will be visiting will
heard was one of those eight who voted with the democrats is so interesting mike and what are we expecting from that visit you know what's he going to say at the border that he didn't and his oval office address. well he is portraying it as a fact finding visit he wants to get briefed he says by all those who are working up that order and he is incidentally taking along with him is senior white house counsel len supply loney now this is significant because supposedly is the constitutional expert in the white house and he's the one with whom president trump has been consulting on the possibility of declaring a state of national emergency the fact that the white house counsel is traveling with president trump has led to speculation that president trump might seize the opportunity at the border to announce that state of national emergency because it would appear at this stage that's the only way he's going to get the money for his
wall but that being said should that state of emergency be declared there's going to be weeks possibly months of legal action in the courts like thank you very much for that is mike hanna live in washington d.c. thank you. still ahead on the bus and despite everything the commie venezuela prepares for president nicolas maduro second six year term and. checking out a new retrospective exhibition of the works of american andy warhol. how the current weather across the us has been much the same for the last week or so is rather warm you might expect this certainly snow about this circulation here contain snow it's now across in the canadian side and it's dying out fairly quickly but temperatures already just subzero from chicago to ottawa and go back to mit we
peg minus nine is a stop to this time of year the cold has tried to spread dime but has really succeeded recently and so we're milder than we should be the regular pacific coast those two were in british columbia was in land has stopped falling in california and looks like it will be dry for a couple days for the cloud starts to come back in bringing more rain quite possibly in fact the developing brain areas probably going to be texas oklahoma leave the plains states with a bit of a light suddenly drifts a temperature hard denver is it plus two it should be nothing like that wall at this time so unusually warm across the u.s. is the story i think to the south of this the old cold fronts don't want to run for a while hard to detect but it is generating big showers in cuba trying to get into jamaica as well and allowing rain to fall in honduras and belize and that line is going to be the breaking up of the next day or so with an increasing likelihood of showers further east through the lesser antilles as well.

acknowledged the historic milestone or relations between the two nations aren't what they were a decade ago katrina has more from beijing. today china and the u.s. are celebrating forty years of diplomatic relations at beijing's great all of the people but when you look at the relationship and the state of it today there is not much to celebrate it's actually reached a low point according to chinese state media today they blame the u.s. squarely for this saying that the u.s. has persisted in a cold war mentality and is refusing to accept china's rise but for the u.s. it's much more complicated than that since trump came to power he's complained of unfair trade practices that has resulted in this long running trade war we saw a group of washington negotiators come to beijing this week to try to sort out a solution talks were reportedly constructive but no result was seen there has also been the long running conflict over the south china sea tensions over that
particularly the parasail islands which china has laid claim to and is continuing to build military facilities on but the u.s. has said that there are many other parties that claim those territories including viet nam and taiwan and the u.s. has persisted in regular freedom of navigation operations in that area much to the hire of the chinese government and actually this week the u.s. sailed a warship very very close to the parasail islands so moving forward there is a celebration today in beijing but remains to be seen whether this relationship will be able to improve this coming year but as well as president assad to be sworn into office for a second six year term. because mother who has wanted to take diplomatic measures against any less an american nation which doesn't recognize his leadership last week a regional group including brazil argentina and colombia declared his second term illegitimate tourism has more from caracas. everything is ready here in cuttack
us for this swearing ceremony of nicola mother will go some differing dignitaries have arrived here to the venezuelan capital and the place where this is going to happen is something there have shock to many here in this country the constitution says that the swearing ceremony should take place at the national assembly well this is not going to happen because the national assembly is considered to be in contempt and that's not recognized by the venezuelan government so this is going to be happening at the supreme court's finish is going through an enormous political and economic crisis when you go around the venezuelan kept there's long lines of people lining up to get some of their basic supplies some staple food among other things hyper inflation expected to be over one million percent the prices of things are changing by the hour over three million people have left this country escaping
the economic crises earlier this wednesday president calamita gave a press conference where he accused the united states of trying to overthrow him and said that any attempts to get him out of office will not succeed the opposition as it stands right now is that most the position leaders have either been detained or they have been persecuted or left the country accused of treason and plotting against the government so now they're focusing on the national assembly and assembly that they controlled but that is not recognized by the government they are saying that they won't recognize the government of nicolas maduro and are planning a transition about what will happen in venezuela if nicolas modo where to leave office of course the precedents and several members of his cabinet have said that if they continue through this path the national assembly could be shut down. troops in brazil have been deployed to the northeastern state a fair share of rise in violent crime there police say it's in retaliation against
president jabal slow. crackdown on gangs has more from the state capital for. this is what the government promised tough on crime tough on the criminals a military presence on the streets and the freedom to shoot first and ask questions later but is in jail. has sent five hundred state troops to say ira with the option of more to follow. the move comes after drug gangs operating from within prisons or did several days of violence on the streets outside his burned bridges and state buildings attacked and shopkeepers forced to close also murder. that was the first time we were forced to close usually work with the daily risk of being robbed and now we need to worry about this too. the cartel bosses were reacting to efforts to curtail their powers including the use of mobile phones in their jail cells twenty one have been moved to other prisons more than two hundred protesters arrested.
previous government put gang members in different prisons if not they killed each other however this only empowered the gang members they got strong both inside and outside prison not just in this region but across the country crimes are planned and ordered from inside prisons so if you block mobile phone usage you might control the gangs the government deployment has brought some degree of security and a return to normality but rubbish being collected after more than a week. support and condemnation for its no holds barred campaign pledge to be tough on crime the gangs have immediately shown their defiance. so in the states it's become the first major battleground in president war against violence in general the drug gangs in particular the gangs of the government has responded. is waiting to see what happens next.
