space soberly also. with a group of police training for guerrilla warfare deep to me it was a war crime and seeking justice more than a decade after the civil war and nepal. thailand's main opposition groups have formed a coalition to take on the military backed ruling party that of the party says the coalition will have two hundred fifty five out of five hundred seats in the house of representatives vinyl results of sunday's elections still have not been announced it was thailand's first vote since the militia military that is took over five years ago scott heiler has more from bangkok. tallinn's main opposition party has said that they have formed a coalition with six other parties and something called a democratic front that they have joined together to counter the influence in the control that the military government has here in thailand and they say mainly because the elections on sunday were for the lower house five hundred members of
7:14 pm
the lower house they say with this coalition they have two hundred fifty five that's gaining control of it the party that's fronted by the military government says that they have a coalition form that they can also control so obviously each party each coalition saying that they will have control we expect unofficial results to come out on friday right now the numbers are very close it appears as though that it does have the numbers that they say they need to form this coalition. has said that they do what's going to be interesting because the two hundred fifty member of senate is completely appointed by the military government in this coalition says that they have the right to form a government because their members were elected by the people not appointed by the military government so these unofficial results or are due out on friday official results will come out come out until may ninth so a lot can happen between now and then but right now both parties lead parties saying that they have the right to control and have

7:16 pm
theoretically become the prime minister it would be a very strange the duration in that case what do you make of these coalitions forming well yesterday the democratic. front said that they had more than two hundred fifty and today the military government the military party the proxy party said that they had enough votes to form a coalition so i mean on the problem would be the military party did form that coalition will be a lot of questions about how the numbers could change so much during election day and why it was necessary to delay the official results and not just a day or two but until may night that's that'll be very contentious so first election in five years what what do you see is the takeaway from how this is all played out. the first takeaway is that the military government with all the time
7:17 pm
in the world five years to set up what they wanted to have their leaders on the. machine the government and with a lot of money put into the election they were only able to get twenty six percent of the vote that means seventy four percent of people voted against the military government the military party. that's number one number two. fresh new party that's made up of activists and pro-democracy persons who don't like the connection with talks and the main party this future forward party has made a very impressive. bid looks like they'll be the one that could help or be part of forming this new government it's young people of the new generation people are excited but that means if the military party forms
7:18 pm
a coalition they're going to be very dissatisfied ok we'll have to see how this all plays out they would suck but thank you so much thank you. seven people including four children have been killed in an air strike on a hospital in yemen a charity save the children says its staff are on the ground supporting the medical team at the time at happened in the city of sodom saudi arabia and the lady are leading a military coalition in yemen against the backed iran backed with the rebels that isn't a war which began four years ago this week and the prime minister narendra modi says his country is now facing superpower after it shot down a satellite as part of a test and he has now become only the fourth country to do so in nonstick comes just two weeks before indians vote in a general election. this was several diago v i want to assure the global community that this new ability that we have achieved is not against anyone it is a defensive initiative of
