7:33 pm
people were injured but then later in the night all over in many parts at least of the capital people went out onto the streets again blocking roads burning tires putting up different barricades and banging on pots and pans demanding water and electricity so there is growing concern that this is going to raise not just the level of tension but of violence here in venezuela president maduro is in fact calling on his supporters to take to every single street in the country to quote ensure the peace while the opposition is now calling for venezuelans to go out and protest all over the country starting on monday for their political and economic turmoil has forced more than three million venezuelans to look for a better life abroad and for some it's been their final journey. reports in the colombian city of where one woman is ensuring the dead are given a proper burial. sagna been moved this is bearing the body of. who fled venezuela

7:50 pm
district of the city. they saw him said that they were serious voting irregularities and that they expect to make significant progress following the appeal while wasn't on the ballots the vote was widely seen as a referendum on the act party's dominance for the last two decades has already admitted his party lost the haas of some parts of the country let's take you live now to istanbul our correspondent tamara sheil is there so jamal what's the latest on this tight mayoral race in istanbul. well the usual situation a scenario that takes place after elections here is a dream is that preliminary results are announced and then each candidate or each party has a chance to appeal those preliminary results before the final official results are declared several days later as you've mentioned there will be several consist ations made. different voting results that have been preliminary announced notably
7:51 pm
those in istanbul and ankara the most significant of the votes but having said that there there is a lot to be taken from the tone and the messaging that came out from the president's right up to. the fact that he delivered his balcony speech from the act party headquarters in ankara in a much more see some bird told than he would usually when it's a lot more jubilant and victorious is an indication that he has accepted that there are certain results that have not gone the way he would have wished the his reference to the fact that it is the will of the people that has been victorious again a sign or an attempt to see the kind of silver lining around the clouds there that they have lost certain positions the significance here is more symbolic than it is in terms of governance and the fact that this is a presidential system the country and he is the president the council's themselves
7:52 pm
although they have clout in terms of how local development is done on the ground they are still very much in the control of the party across the country but the mayor ality the mayor positions in those cities losing them to the opposition show that there is certain dissatisfaction amongst the large parts of the population in those cities and that's in and of itself is a huge warning to the act party and true and that's in the more significant elections the parliamentary ones and the. the presidential ones in the coming few years unless things change then this could be the start of a month so for the opposition to build upon it because over the past fourteen voting. exercises we're talking about all these different elections that have taken pass by parts in the past seventeen years not just elections but referendum the act party has come out undisputedly the victory this time around even though it has won
7:53 pm
the majority of the vote so more than fifty percent of votes going to them nationally they're lost in places like encore and most likely istanbul shows that they need to reinvent themselves they need to address real concerns that namely the economic stagnation of the country has witnessed as well as other misgivings that the electorates has with regards to the way things have been going in starkey the past couple of years jamal many things of zeros tomorrow shall live in istanbul there's been a reshuffle of the cabinets in algeria it's an attempt by the government to satisfy protesters who are demanding political change in the country of local media are reporting the president of the lizzie's beautifully could resign sometime this week then you can take a cabinet is headed by prime minister noda dean better we who himself was appointed just three weeks ago only six of twenty seven ministers from the outgoing cabinet have kept their jobs they include deputy defense minister and army chief of staff ahmed guide salah who's calling for beautifully could be declared unfit for office
7:54 pm
bus just after the new cabinet was announced protesters were back on the streets again saying they want to complete a radical change in algeria and politics and not just a reshuffle let's take you now to shoot us in neighboring tunisia. is there can tell us more what are the implications of this cabinet reshuffle and is it a prelude to president bush a flicker standing down. well edgier this is widely seen. as just by the government to outmaneuver the pro-democracy movement by taking out the steam from the anti democracy and to government protests that have been going on for quite some time people are saying that they would like to see the president of the whole political elite to step aside and that they are not happy with the to take a government because some of the people there particularly know them but there were
7:55 pm
for example is a prime minister is one of the acolytes been widely considered one of the acolytes of president did i.z.'s beautifully but i have to say that the political saga in algeria is reaching a tipping point with the power struggle between two key players accommodate the army commander who says that the president with up with one has to go and on the other hand you have a salable to feel it is a brother of president. and why this seen as the most powerful man in algeria since two thousand and thirteen when the president suffered a massive stroke. what happens if beautifully could does step down who takes over as president. there are two scenarios now first scenario. says i'm resigning it turns the chapter and then the political elites to look for a replacement scenario two. sticks to power says i'm still the legitimate president
7:56 pm
of algeria and then i think the army will definitely have to step in by asking all the political elites and particularly the constitutional council to trigger article one of the only problem with that article is that people are saying it would pave the way for the upper set of president to take over and he's not really accepted by the people they say he's been part of the same elite that is responsible for an economy that is in tatters poverty which is skyrocketing in algeria and huge problems of the country face willing to look forward to a new phase someone trusted by the algerians to take over and i think what we're seeing a lot of energy. could be an indication that there might be some sort of negotiations behind closed doors for a consensus candidate who will take over if that does not happen i think the political crisis would further deepen on a serious many thanks i would rather live in tunis. a woman accused of murdering
