of ankara but president out of one's ruling party has the overall need. plus the the poets we look at the rise of poetry on social media and how it's resonating with young people searching for understanding. so algerian president. has named a new caretaker government following six weeks of widespread protests demanding his resignation a private algerian t.v. station is also reporting that beautifully is preparing to make an announcement in the coming days that he will step down. well the caretaker government will be headed by the prime minister nouri dean better way we who was appointed just three weeks ago will be leading twenty seven ministers six from the outgoing administration staying on it deputy defense minister an army chief of staff that's retained his position on saturday he repeated

a call for it to be declared unfit for office well millions took to the streets on friday demanding the exit of the entire political elite it was the biggest round of protests since see unrest began on fire between the second when beauty flicka announced his bid for a fifth term the old reverse that decision but protesters say it's not enough they want the ailing beauty flicka to resign immediately he's really appeared in public since suffering a stroke six years ago when american has the latest from tunis in neighboring tunisia. this is being seen as a cabinet reshuffle plus now who remains in the cabinet well the very powerful army chief. now he's the one is backing article one or two what is article one and say well it's where the president can be removed on the grounds of ill health provided it's passed within the parliament with a two thirds majority now the army is backing that it's hoping that that will be enough to quell the protest movement on the streets the army is very worried about
8:51 am
instability and the protests are growing larger and larger and larger over the last six weeks on friday we saw millions of people out on the streets not only in the capital but throughout the entire country itself however the protest movement is very clear it says that anything like this is not going to be enough they want iraq to call over the whole not just of the army but they also want a radical or the whole of the government and the opposition who they say overruling cahoots with each other and are keeping the money pretty much within themselves allegations of corruption are driving this protest movement is this poverty especially within the countryside so you have a situation now where this kavanah reshuffle has taken place now what does that mean well a lot of analysts are suggesting that this is a way to expedite article one or two and allow for a very quick way of removing president abdulaziz beautifully kept the has been reaction on social media from some of the protesters perhaps one of the most
8:52 am
telling tweets is this one is every time something like this happens we say to each other we will see you on the streets on friday well i mean we spoke to runit he's been taking part in the protests in algeria and she explains how the cabinet reshuffle will be perceived by the public. i would say there's two major point of views that are circulating one that says that. yes we should support gates suggestion that he is a lesser of two evils if you say desperate times call for desperate measures and that perhaps he's the only one of our pull it out and credible enough to help us get rid of it which is a plan however the other opposing side would say that having the military interfere is quite dangerous we could end up like egypt and that gates how he's doing this just to appear as the savior in the year of the people in fact he has been a darling of the system for so many years so it is assumed that he had some speech
8:53 am
spiritual awakening where he was against the corrupt clan which he and the businessman and everybody surrounding them seems to be very naive so i would say people have different opinions but the goal is still the same and the goal is we want to get rid of these people altogether. exit polls in ukraine show that the comedian flood of selenski has won the first round of the presidential election the incumbent petro poroshenko is currently running in second place has more now from kiev on what to expect from the runoff vote next month. a victory is not unexpected the polls have been tipping it for weeks but it is a pretty unlikely political victory this man has no political background or experience he played the part of a president in a t.v. series but that's really all anybody knows about him they don't know what he stands for they don't know who backs him importantly they don't know who may influence him in the future and in what direction but above all of that this was
8:54 am
a protest vote by a sizeable proportion of the population angry angry and frustrated with politics mainstream politics as they have been this has been a rejection of those politics of those leaders and the old ways in ukraine. election night at the zelinsky campaign headquarters it's a casual affair a long way from the stuffy formality of the more established parties which is little surprise for the. the near certain winner of the first round of ukraine's presidential election is a comedian turned actor whose only experience of politics is playing the part of president in a popular television series he may soon be playing the part for real that's. great . legs and always a. new life begins a normal life life without the option without bribes without anything like this
8:55 am
life in a new country a country have my dreams you. will go into the second round runoff in april against incumbent president the confectionery business owner petro poroshenko who seems to have lost public trust over his broken promises to end the separatist war in the east and wipe away the. a stain of official corruption he says because you know people for not returning to the soviet union know all about fire and fair fight so it was for ukraine the chocolate billionaire versus the comedy king russia would be watching the second round closely as will the european union ukraine is stuck in the middle geographically divided by conflict its economy in the doldrums and anticorruption reforms failing to take hold neither candidate has ready answers . back at h.q. and this matter for the finance minister on exam to look could provide the experience the candidate lacks something like an act of blind faith isn't it to
8:56 am
support a man with no political background or experience culture of why should people do it . well that's a good question right there just maybe because they trust him more than the alternatives that's it. and they. you know blindly bluntly actually saying that we don't want. a continuation of foreign forces you know with what we don't want people who don't trust running the country so this is the shiny new look politics in ukraine and younger voters in particular will surely many hard to like the five all of them is immense his promise to change everything even if he's so far made only the vaguest suggestions about how he plans to do that we'll have to change fast as voters' minds become far more focused in the second round. so this man zelinsky is a political unknown his policies are unknown but he does seem to represent for many
8:57 am
people hope but it was just five years ago that protesters were out of the square behind me in my down square the second revolution in this country in fifteen years they protested here against corruption for a different kind of ukraine a different future of moving closer to european structures the e.u. nato and so on instead what do they see they have a frozen conflict in the east corruption is still rising some say goes all the way to the top so we have this rejection of mainstream politics to the extent that people are prepared to embrace a sort of blind faith in the lord to me is alinsky he's not there yet of course he's got to fight and win the second round yet and those policies of his such as they exist will come under far greater and closer and closer scrutiny in the weeks ahead. turkey's opposition has made major gains in local elections at the expense of president recip top two and his party the votes widely seen as a referendum on the act party's dominance for nearly two decades the opposition has
8:58 am
won control in the capital ankara and the coastal city of his mia in istanbul it's considered too close to call later one concedes his policy has failed to hold on in some regions but because act every victory and every loss is the will of our nation and we have to accept this fact as a necessity of democracy we will admit that we want people's hearts in cities we won but we were not successful enough in cities we lost and we will act accordingly let's hear now from sin in concert who has more from her. the official results haven't been announced yet but what we have had from the electorial board until now tells us that the ruling party and his supporters the nationalist party lost in the because the major cities in turkey in despair and now the stumble is at stake because it's so far both sides both the opposition and the ruling party side have
8:59 am
announced a victory however the higher electorial board has stopped sharing data sharing information so so far we don't know who is the victor in istanbul the most crowded city of turkey with a fifty plus million population and at base ten point five million voters and also istanbul is the heart of business history and commerce and tricky but whoever wins a stumble either whether it is the ruling party candidate the former prime minister been through more the opposition candidates. it's going to be a narrow cots and according to the results so far present tacked on television about going to speeches after the main is after the big cities results were announced and he sounded like he has accepted the laws
9:00 am
in ancora and is near but he added that even though even if the ruling party loses a stumble the majority of the districts in istanbul still. are in favor of a party and he said he said that he will be making some major changes including some changes in the cabinet as well beginning from tomorrow because he will try to cover the loss and it seems present our john and a ruling party were able to hear the message that the voters has have given it from the biggest cities of turkey prosecutors in malaysia to resume the hearing of a vietnamese national charged with the murder of north korean leader kim jong. un's trial is expected to last.
