al-jazeera. this is al jazeera. hello i'm daryn jordan is the others there are news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. algerian celebrated as president but a fleet that declares he will not run for a fifth term in office. the british prime minister says she's won the e.u. support the changes to have brags that plan just hours before a crucial vote. the u.s.
5:01 am
aviation regulator asked boeing to modify the seven three seven max a plane after the second crash in just five months. and venezuelans flock to open drains in search of water off the days of power blackouts worsens the crisis. presidents have been aziz but a fleet that has abandoned his bid for a fifth term in office after weeks of mass demonstrations he's delayed next month's election and appointed a new prime minister but the figure also said a national conference will be held by the end of the year to schedule an election and draft a new constitution which martin reports. the celebration sprang up across algeria from the capital algiers to constantine and beyond all within minutes of hearing the algerian president abdulaziz beautifully but caved into mounting pressure and announced he would not seek
5:02 am
a fifth time protesters took to the streets over the past weeks asking for his departure and calling for political reforms. and then have it have if. i am optimistic that the voice of the people and especially young people has been and that this pave the way for a new and constructive period that can solve many of our problems i believe that the young people who took to the streets in cities around the country acted responsibly which impressed people both locally and abroad we must continue and work together with this responsibility that we call mutual respect and tend this crisis into a constructive process where our. hearts beautifully will continue to run the country for the time being he's reshuffle his government appointing his interior minister nurdin badly his prime minister and his advisor rahm tamla mamre as his
5:03 am
deputy. with the army chief general. salah retains his post. has outlined a series of steps which he hopes will shape algeria's future. such as launching a national dialogue on reforming the state's institutions and drafting a new constitution. but it's unclear is beautiful because decisions will contain the anger of the anti government movement key opposition figures were either banned by the constitutional council from running against the president all pulled out of the race describing the april election as a fast most people do not think that if the guy himself is pulling the strings of power but with think that is in their interest so we have been appointed as prime minister. deputy prime minister and this is these are things that we know from from the from the year of this regime and these are not if we want and the
5:04 am
protests is insist they will continue their rallies until their demands are met they want a new president democratic reforms and the government capable of tackling rising unemployment poverty and corruption richard martin al jazeera. but let's bring in ben brower he's an associate professor in the public of history at the university of texas at austin he specializes in algeria and politics and history been brought how significant is the timing of bush if he has announcement that he won't be seeking a fifth term why now and how much did the growing protest movement and political instability push him towards this decision do you think. i think at this point there was just no more choice for the government but to reconsider what these elections were going to be and who they would be presenting. you know over the weekend there was a general strike that was declared it was followed with with more or less success
5:05 am
in different parts of the country and that put enormous pressure on the government to find a different path forward than the one that they originally conceived a week ago by doubling down on this idea of beautifully presented himself for the presidential and then stepping down at some point in the near future and many of the protesters who took part in the demonstrations were students and young people how much of a disconnect is there between algeria's ruling elite and the young out jerry and so see a completely different vision for the country. well certainly there's a there's a great difference in age the group of people who centrally control the country a group that is generally known as the power or the poor war in french are our generation that came of age in one nine hundred sixty two for the most part and have built their entire careers incredibly long careers based upon their proximity
5:06 am
to the algerian revolution and so these are people who are in their seventy's and eighty's at this particular moment here. when we speak now. the algeria. has and has long has had a very young population so in terms of age incredible disconnect and i think also we have to speak in terms of class and social experiences in the horizons that the most of the people of an algeria experience now you know generally speaking this is not a country that has understood has experienced the worst sort of oppression poverty and so forth that would see in the world but this is even though even the middle class is a very very narrow horizons on on where they might be going in the world they can they can receive their education in some cases an incredibly good education but then after what comes after that what are the possibilities for for a career where the possibilities for a family one of the possibilities for you know the basic sorts of things that we
5:07 am
need in our lives today and young people just don't see those horizons opening up for them and it's been a long long time that these rises have been close you know this this moment that we're in now on many ways dates back to the one nine hundred eighty s. october of one nine hundred eighty eight young people took to the streets is then also claiming many of the same to sort of things that were that they're asking for today and they were fired upon the streets and so great loss of life at that point and the big question now ben is who will succeed but is it going to be a rubber stamp seen from the army will it be an islamist or is it likely to be a new progressive figure who will bring about social and political reforms. well the president today or his entourage whoever was responsible for the document was issued today talked about a national convention and in terms of either rewriting the cost of the existing cost of tuition or drafting the new constitution it also talked about a person who would be in charge of that without naming that person and i think it's
5:08 am
. anyone's guess on the outside who that person might be at this particular moment one of the people that visited with the president with the flick of today was the algerian diplomat locked up brahimi and so that might be one person who would help shepherd this transition forward i think that you know in many ways brahimi is a is is something that that we might take as an up and optimistic sign he is certainly one from the generation of sixty two he started his career as a algerian diplomat a very young age and so he's part of that particular historical moment but he is in the last twenty years at least he's kept himself in something of a distance he said it a different career working for the united nations in particular and has an incredible and i'll tell you it's working in post conflict transitions notably in afghanistan and in lebanon ok ben bradlee happening with that thank you very much
5:09 am
indeed for your insight. let's take a look back now what but if he has twenty year rule hushed here's how. algeria's longest serving president of the as he's beautifully a car will likely be remembered for anding the civil war that lasted ten years and killed hundreds of thousands of people would have won praise for restoring stability that lead to an economic boom and major development projects across the country. he also managed to hold the country together during the arab spring there were protests in january two thousand and eleven over poverty and unemployment the government responded by creating thousands of small business opportunities with generous incentives to young entrepreneurs reducing food prices and anding a decades old state of emergency despite this riots can ten years
5:10 am
a sign that not everyone was happy with how beautifully ran algeria. considered a national hero by his supporters he fought on the battlefield during a war of independence from france and then served as foreign minister until nine hundred seventy nine in the early one nine hundred eighty s. he was accused of corruption and went on a self-imposed exile the charges were later dropped and of the end of the civil war in the late one nine hundred ninety s. he won an election with the backing of the military they opposition said the vote was rigged to flee a cause critics accused him of clinging to power and cracking down on his opposition jewing his second term in office him managed to change the constitution to allow him to run for an unlimited number of terms so with mounting controversy
5:11 am
and popular unease among his opponents but of one a third election in two thousand and nine and afford. in two thousand and fourteen by the time he won the two thousand and fourteen election he was frail and rarely seen in public and some said he was no longer fit to govern was to leaders considered him an important ally in the fight against armed groups in north africa . had a zero tolerance towards those draw. and the heavy handedness linked to that approach sometimes cost civilian lives in two thousand and thirteen thirty foreign workers including the nationals were killed when beautifully ordered the army to storm a gas plant in the algerian does the aim was to rescue hundreds of hostages held by an armed group affiliated with al qaida but critics believed could have
5:12 am
saved lives had he negotiated a safe exit for the civilians or planned his counter attack more carefully during his last years in power he sacked many of his top army generals in a push to curb their influence but a flip i had a number of health concerns in recent years has suffered a ministroke of the beginning of two thousand and thirteen and was in a french hospital for three months of the lazies as opponents say his legacy was one of stagnation while his supporters insist he brought much needed stability to algeria. lots more still to come here on al-jazeera including. us but forces close in on the last place in syria. a warning of a new crisis for i think the muslims forced to take refuge in bangladesh. and in
5:13 am
sport less than a year after walking away one of real madrid's all time greats is back in charge of the team that's all still to come. the british government says its recent agreement with the e.u. on legally binding changes to the briggs's deal the announcement follows last minute talks between prime minister to resign may and european commission president . the revised plan for the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. will be put to a vote in britain's parliament on tuesday well the changes to the deal aimed to resolve the key sticking point of the irish border at the moment northern ireland as part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland are both part of the e.u. people and goods passing freely between the two the fear is that after brags that a hard border will separate the two islands seeing checks and inspections reimposed and threatening trade and the good friday peace agreement to avoid this the e.u. and u.k. decided on
5:14 am
a fallback plan or backstop which would keep the border open and free of restrictions after the brig's a transition period in the absence of a new trade deal but that sparked a political backlash from critics saying it could lead britain tied to the e.u. indefinitely for tourism is hoping changes to the deal making it easier for britain to pull out of the backstop will put those concerns to rest having an insurance policy to guarantee that there will never be a hard. it is absolutely right it is the u.k. so it's in the belfast good friday agreement but if we ever have to use that insurance policy it cannot become a permanent arrangement i'm just not the template for our future relationship. the deal that m.p.'s voted on in january was not strong enough in making that clear and legally binding changes we needed to set that right today we have agreed to them but the head of the european commission says they'll be no more chances for the british government to renegotiate if this latest version of the deal is voted down
5:15 am
by m.p.'s in london. in politics sometimes you get the second chance if you so what we do with the second that comes because there would be even of chance there would be no further interpretation of the interpretations and no further assurances from the reassurances or john johnson is a reporter for politics home that's a political news website he says it's unclear which way m.p.'s will vote on tuesday to morrow we will get a statement from the attorney general geoffrey cox he will put the legal advice to government before parliament parliamentarians will be able to look at this and discuss it. it's very difficult still to say which way this will go certainly it was very clear from both the e.u. side and misses me this evening at the press conference that there will be no further negotiation between the two sides if this is voted down tomorrow the defeat in january was historic it was the largest defeat ever in british parliamentary
5:16 am
estate so there is a large hurdle for her to have to jump over tomorrow however there are members of her party who are very against this deal the first time around who appear to be taking this development very seriously they are looking at the proposals much of it will depend on the attitude of the d u p the northern irish party who are any confidence in supply agreement with theresa may if they give this changes the thumbs up then it's very likely that hardcore backstairs will swing behind us to more. no a french man met in the movie has been jailed for life for killing four people during an anti-semitic attack in belgium in twenty fourteen the thirty three year old was suspected of working for iceland's syria before the shootings he opened fire at the jewish museum in brussels with a kalashnikov assault rifle and a hunger a second french national was given a fifteen year jail term for supplying the weapons used by the move. boeing says it
5:17 am
will roll out modifications to its seven three seven mux eight planes within weeks it was ordered to do so by the u.s. aviation regulator every mexico has become the latest allying to ground its fleet after sunday's crash in ethiopia it was the second disaster involved in this type of aircraft in five months question some of the as more from washington. boeing's most popular jet is now coming under scrutiny as a result of the ethiopian airlines crash it's the second deadly accident involving the seven thirty seven max eight in less than six months and similarities between these two accidents have prompted airline carriers more than a dozen of them in countries like china indonesia and mexico to ground their fleet while the investigation is going on now that's not the case here in the united states here the federal aviation administration says that the boeing plane is airworthy and that it's too soon to draw conclusions about what happened it's been
5:18 am
working with boeing ever since the last crash the lion air crash that happened in indonesia last october it says boeing is expected to make a software update to the plane in the next month that should help with some issues but again insisting that the airline is airworthy and safe now that's not enough for some people here in the united states airlines have been facing questions from passengers and travelers who are worried about flying on the. seven thirty seven max we've heard from senator dianne feinstein in california who's called for grounding the fleet temporarily until the cause of the accident is known flight attendants association as one pilots union have also called for further investigation boeing for its part issued a statement saying that their plane is safe and that the software update will only make it safer they have however suffered in the stock market their stocks dropping
5:19 am
more than five percent on monday well the flight recorders of the ethiopian airlines plane which went down minutes south of takeoff have now been recovered catherine sawyer reports a moment of silence at the united nations environment assembly in nairobi some of the passengers and both the airlines flight that crashed on sunday but delegates enterprises and other stuff men this coming for this meeting this is also a regional u.n. hub with several agencies and two u.n. headquarters based here u.n. workers in the affiliates were on the flight some of the u.n. workers were coming for this conference some of these were u.n. workers are actually on the frontline of humanitarian and development work in kenya and in the region so they were coming forth from from from different perspectives but certainly there were certain subject matter experts that language experts etc who were coming here for the conference itself so it's been
5:20 am
a setback you know in on all counts but most of those who died were kenyans like benson be room to stoughton and coming back home from vienna where she is pursuing a doctorate and whom they had just spoken to in the morning it is soup in the food loose the young guy. who has. a life. to achieve. in life. in a blink of an eye it is too big. of a crash site just outside investigators have found the plane's black box that's an important evidence to help understand what could have gone wrong back at the u.n. the agency's flag flies at half staff to or now those who were killed that would be going on. we are why we would see. another piece of the enviros try to have this done on. many delegates despite the
5:21 am
sadness the reason resilience and heads of state arriving here in the coming days must make strong commitments at the end of it or catherine. and i will be. boeing's seven three seven aircraft a rule the skies more than fifty years as the world's best selling modern passenger aircraft viewed as one of the industry's most reliable its newest incarnation the seven three seven max eight was unveiled in twenty seventeen featuring big engines designed to use less fuel that has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by between ten and twelve percent by the end of january this year boeing had delivered three hundred fifty of the new jets with another four thousand six hundred sixty one on order let's bring in keith mackey he's an aviation consultant and a former airline captain who joins us via skype from florida keith mackey how significant is this software fix that boeing and the f.a.a. set to rollout and what exactly is the problem with this system on the seven three
5:22 am
seven max. well the way the system works is when they put the new engines on the max airplane the aerodynamics of the airplane were changed slightly the engines were mounted a little bit further forward consequently if you were aborting a landing for example an added power the nose would pitch up further than the standard seven for us seven three seven the software update puts a correction in there and it brings the nose down a little bit so you a pilot wouldn and permanently stall the air ply normally the software would never be activated and if it was a pilot probably wouldn't even notice that it was being activated the problem with the indonesian crash is that the sensor that drives that software called an angle of attack indicator was not functioning properly and hadn't been for several
5:23 am
days the airline didn't seem to be able to repair it properly and on several preceding flights a situation wasn't countered that was similar to the accident situation however in needs the crews are able to successfully land they are ok so i think the software update will probably just make it easier to recognize if this input comes into play and if it does the pilot can easily disconnect the system if a creates problem ok and many aviation analysts point out that the flight profile of the lion air crash and the ethiopian crash a very similar and that if betting knew there was a problem with the anti still system of the line the crash was it taken another one hundred fifty seven people to die before they and the f.a.a. have acted on this. actually profiles were not different were not the same there are quite different in the lion air crash the airplane climbed up to about
5:24 am
six thousand feet before it dived into the ocean in ethiopia the airport barely climbed a thousand feet the air speed increased greatly the vertical speed was erratic. the airplane impacted the ground at a very high rate of speed possibly from nearly a level attitude so this is completely different than what happened to lyon there and that's going to be part of the gust to gauge determining what the differences with or if there is any similarities between the two situations and then applying that cause and we're acting the costs and the f.a.a. keith says it has no plans to ground the seven three seven max but many airlines don't agree that i mean there's now a growing list of airlines around the world that decided to ground their seven three seven unilaterally until further notice and that's bound to put more pressure on boeing isn't it yes this puts a lot of pressure on boeing boeing has
5:25 am
a lot of orders pending for the europe line if passengers are not comfortable that they're not going to want to ride on an airplane boeing could lose orders airlines could be used as a lose business so it's very important that the problem be resolved and the changes delayed to make the airplane even safer be implemented so that the industry can go on and resume its normal operation but the sarah white keith matthew thank you very much indeed for talking to al jazeera you're very welcome. well venezuela's opposition dominated national assembly has declared a state of emergency of power outages schools have been suspended and businesses shut for a second day the blackouts began on thursday to water shortages caused the deaths of dozens of patients who were unable to receive treatment reports. water is running short in the capital. as the country continues to struggle with

president's asking for more funds for his planned border wall along mexico white house correspondent can really help get us more. it's a budget president donald trump knows will never be approved by the u.s. congress still his white house unveiled its fiscal priorities for the camera. trumps twenty twenty budget calls for deep cuts in federal spending including big cuts to government programs that help low income americans boosting spending for the u.s. military. but the headline another push for billions to build a wall along the southern border of the united states and mexico he's doing his job he's doing what congress should be doing he took an oath of office and he has a constitutional duty to protect the people of this country if trump's request for border wall funding sounds familiar it should be was a trump twenty sixteen presidential campaign promise we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for the wall. it's
