looking back is a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera venezuela's opposition leader one why dole is calling on the international community to keep all options open after saturday's violent border clashes over american aid at least two people were killed in efforts to get supplies into the country failed pope francis has called for an all out battle against the abuse of minors the pope made the comments as on an unprecedented meeting of senior catholic clergy wrapped up at the vatican and observers say as many as thirty five people were killed in election violence in a saturday both are being counted in the closely for general election between president mohamed bihari and his main rival a tee up a back. the voting has wrapped up in senegal's presidential elections the president is seeking
a second term and faces four main rivals to his bid since coming to office president saleh is developed infrastructure projects and the economy is said to be booming but opposition candidates say the ordinary people are still suffering because of poverty and high unemployment gave us this update on the vote count from a polling station in the capital dhaka it's going on across fifteen thousand polling stations and we're in one of the polling rooms we've just seen earlier these officers taking out each envelope calling out the name of the candidate this in front of observers from the political parties and from the election commission the election commission here says it wants to make the process as transparent as possible i mean this is democracy in action in senegal and so they go as one of the most stable democracies on the continent in much of it is to do with this electoral process it's gone through eleven elections and all have been
a peaceful transition in power now in this polling room specifically multi-cell came on top that doesn't mean that the rest of the country will follow but it surely is an indication of the mood because we've seen for the last two weeks marquis solid campaigning aggressively across the country like you said. praise him in showing his accomplishment during his time and his mandate in power. security forces in sudan's capital khartoum have fired tear gas at hundreds of protesters calling on president omar al bashir to stand down the continued violence follows bashir declaring a state of emergency across the country on friday he said he was dissolving his government but just hours later appointed six new ministers and eighteen state governors for the military morgan has the latest now from khartoum. we've seen hundreds of people coming out to protest despite
a state of emergency being enforced since friday by the president are going to achieve now let's remember people have been out in the streets expressing expressing their frustration with the government saying that they want the president to step down and basically they want to see an interim government that has been happening for ten weeks now in sudan it started in mid december over the course of the costs over the rising cost of food commodities and it just quickly morphed into people demanding that present i'm going to push you and his thirty two and step down now today now on friday when pretty when the president declared a state of emergency he dissolved the cabinet and dismissed all our state governors and appointed eighteen new military governors instead and he also appointed six ministers on friday itself and yes they have pointed to some some more including the prime minister and the vice president also were sworn in today but people are saying that they do not recognize the government that has been formed by the president they don't do not recognize the state of emergency that has been for that that has been announced let's remember a state of emergency would give the military the power to raid any house or any institution that they feel like it's threat that they feel is threatening the
institution they also the state of emergency also gives the government the right to arrest whoever they feel is threatening sudan stability and economic stability and political stability and people are saying that that's not going to stop them to say that despite the heavy presence of security in hard to many various parts of the country they will continue to protest and kill president i want to push your steps down something he said he's not going to do. a suspect who allegedly tried to hijack a plane and was shot by bangladeshi commandos has died from his injuries the boeing jet was forced to make an emergency landing at bangladesh is it should have gone airport local media says or one hundred forty two passengers got off the plane safely now the new democrats in the u.s. congress are pushing forward with plans to try to save the environment they've launched an initiative called a green new deal to tackle climate change and boost when you pull energy sources and the republicans have been quick to call for it to be voted on congress but as
she reports it's not because they want to save the planet. as speaker pelosi and i have have spoken at the green new deal has been a priority for progressive left wing democrats elected last november it's based on the principle that the system that's produced unprecedented inequality is also hastening global environmental catastrophe i don't think that we selected by addressing climate change and what i see in some portions of the treaty is that people read frustrated because they don't feel like this is. the key goals of the green new deal to meet all of the u.s. is power to moms through renewable zero emission energy during a ten year national mobilization while ensuring communities and workers don't suffer during the transition the need for action has been echoed by a republican leadership that usually expresses little appetite for debate on the environment or economic inequality i've noted with great interest the green new
deal. and we're going to be voting on that in the senate to give everybody an opportunity to go on record. the republicans see an opportunity in the deal's emphasis on reducing greenhouse gases while creating an equitable society but no patootie to fracture the democratic party and not to save the planet the era of big government is over bill clinton shifted the democrats from left to right away from the social safety net to the primacy of market forces and big business now almost thirty years later the left is fighting back and the democratic leadership fears the republicans will present them as socialist extremists even as opinion polls show broad support for higher taxes on the rich to fund government spending on education health and averting climate change house majority leader nancy pelosi is dismissive comments when asked what she thought about the green new deal where revealing the green dream or whatever they call it she replied nobody knows what it is but they're all for it right it's the grassroots calling for action on climate
change and economic equality the sunrise movement is a nationwide group of. young people that's helped place the green new deal on the political agenda it says the leadership of both parties have a lot to lose if they underestimate support for the green new deal and the electorate frustration for how things are this is a crucial juncture for leadership for a long time the democrats say that they believe the science but fail to take decisive action what mitch mcconnell doesn't seem to understand is that he doesn't even have the support of his own voting base sixty four percent of republicans support what played out in the resolution. at the prospect of presenting the democrats as too divided even to challenge a popular president may be well founded then if the democratic leadership continues to resist policies that may lead to the change voters say they actually want. washington. cubans have been voting on a new constitution for their country a final draft of the new constitution was adopted by the cuban parliament last
