5:02 am
a potentially dangerous drifts the resignation came shortly after the country's army chief warrant of immediate action to remove the president from office well after. the show i would use very once again we emphasize that our effort to solve this crisis is based on our allegiance to the country and we are confident that the people can overcome any crisis we also believe that individuals will vanish but the country will remain forever. that. news of the resignation turned to weeks of protests and to celebrations at the end of october the cuban that we won the battle of but we still have to win the war there's still a lot of work to do but if legal has rarely been seen in public since he suffered a stroke in two thousand and thirteen his plans to seek a fifth presidential term sparked a national outcry and appear to turn many of his key allies against him. the protesters have welcomed would have leaders resignation but say it's not enough
5:03 am
there's a hole in the gut that we need to remove the previous regime that will be the hardest thing it's hard to do so peacefully but i have trust that i'll jerry and people can move to a country of institutions not gangs. there's a growing demands for a complete overhaul of all derrius political system a call to push the inner circle out and replace it with a truly democratic government if they want to get rid of the. whole system only which means all of the political arena all the businessmen made up billions in their era for what was upon a president's resignation argyria is constitutional states the speaker of the upper house steps in as interim leader for up to ninety days during that time a presidential election must be organized because a lot of the right got to do that because i hope the trust we put in the army won't
5:04 am
be betrayed like it was in the past we gave our trust and it must not be turned against us we want to choose the next president ourselves all eyes will be on exactly how that process takes place at a historic moment in the country's history katia locus of a young al-jazeera. let's bring in algeria analyst rushdie a louis and montgomery alabama who joins us via skype from there we appreciate your time so much are you surprised at how quickly this all transpired. thank you for having me not really. since ever since gates do you chief of staff of the army and the beauty of minnesota parents. got involved in the process and started making the small statements like the one in every twenty second he said the people in the army have shared the same vision and then he went to crescendo. and and his
5:05 am
statement got harder and are going harder until today where we've seen three of statement all of them against not only would also all the clan that should portable to the governments his grandmother his inner circle and there was almost a logical conclusion. to two weeks of protests in two weeks of. where is happening in the industry like to you think was the tipping point. the tipping point thing that pushed or didn't military to intervene in this manner is a thank they heart. the inner circle all around. is trying to push the army out. that there is a speculation and therefore they are they been thought not i was proactive
5:06 am
in pushing good before things got. really radicalized think got violent because you notice that the street is not. calm you notice that there is no appetite in the army in the military and in mysterious to sion to go out and crack down in the process so he was left almost with no choice but to push slowly which little towards all which he has successfully done so in many when i did not resign he was it was more so absolutely ok so going forward what do you see as the key thing to to keep an eye on going forward for this transition period going forward we have to keep an eye on two actors. the first lot is the military they will be a major player and
5:07 am
a measure actor in any negotiation going cool and the second one is this opposition that we see if people say it's a literalist opposition but i do disagree a little bit yes there is no single leader of the opposition but there are leaders all of them and i can cite some of them like unstoppable shasha you can with a couple. wire e even former candidates for the presidency only been pleased is coming back and start making serious statements so and all of this figures are cool listen around the single platform a single message. there is articulate around our. having an interim president an interim improv prime minister and. basically call in assembly cost as usual assembly to revise the constitution deeply and there is
5:08 am
a process of transition that will last at least at least a year ok we appreciate your time very much rusty a lowly thank you very much thank you very much let's take now as a samus area in algeria internal us whistle leasure an independent who joins us via skype from algiers we appreciate your time very much so now that the protesters have gotten this particular part accomplished a huge accomplishment this is what they wanted was the president to step down what is it that you had there saying they want next. well the resignation of which is a france victory for injury and protests people have been progressing for one month for more than one month but people are one this is just what the first but there is a war to be will need to be won we want to steal them and then to get rid of the the whole system the whole political system the region of would have league up with if you go is that is just this shining this shining part of the moon this is still
5:09 am
the dark side of the moon that this suit be so is there is out of iraq this is there an apparatus or a leadership in place and the opposition to lead that where the people the big will now don't believe in them in the end yet you know a position that europe was asian is really weak and people. don't trust or we need some fresh some fresh people some young people some fresh brought in the political environment so that it was you are part of the regime of what actually got so we've actually had another analysts say something similar earlier tonight so you're saying that that they people that are protesting are skeptical of the entire system whether it's beautifully or some other politicians and they want something completely different is that what you're saying you know we need we need some fresh some some new faces some young people the people are obviously happy today for that
5:10 am
is a nation of which have we got what they need they want some some new faces they want this is the dissolution of leading parting the outside and even even there they are there on the mound in the solution of the opposition parties so they don't trust the opposition parties sit back and this is a process this is a long haul to change something that has been in place for so long do you think that the people that want this realize or accept that. yeah the treatment true today is that. the main concern is to have the suits so small as possible transition without faces from would just leave us reaching ok and we could couldn't do the army. transition but we are still that we are still it people are out clearing the same scenario of egypt. they appeared in the same scenario when the army took over after the fall of prison wara. so we'll have to keep our eye on all

5:20 am
appetite to prolong an already over due process for the e.u. there is little comfort taken at the ever increasing possibility of a no deal divorce. or. never my desire. but you know prepared. to do more like. meanwhile ahead of next week's e.u. summit island's prime minister met for talks with the french president it might call has been vocal on the u.k.'s need to come up with a deal as soon as possible not least to safeguard its fellow e.u. members from the fallout of a new deal scenario it has taken two and three quarter years for the u.k. to reach this point attitudes have hardened as has the anger at the impasse police on cheese day said they were investigating two bump sketches on the rail network

which they say bricks it related many are looking to the end of this chaotic period in british politics but the forces it has unleashed have already cost the shadows over the u.k. so to al-jazeera london. and a week from now israelis will be electing their next government fourteen political parties are competing for one hundred twenty seats prime minister benjamin netanyahu of the right wing party is seeking a fifth term in office he is the first sitting prime minister to to be indicted on corruption charges is continue to expand illegal israeli settlements and no progress has been made towards establishing a palestinian state is biggest challengers are former military chief benny gantz scenario left out of the blue and white coalition against israeli forces during the gaza war and two thousand and fourteen on the campaign trail as focus has been on
5:22 am
issues such as the rising costs of living and fighting corruption then there is average debate from the labor party which hasn't won an election and twenty years two palestinian israeli parties are also running in a week israelis will go to the polls so decide whether to grant benjamin netanyahu a fifth term as prime minister at the heart of a campaign has been the contest between him and his former army chief and he gets hairy fosset reports some was true islam on the battle for power. which of these men do israelis want as their prime minister for all the myriad parties and themes to loomed over this campaign the real fight remains benjamin netanyahu versus benny gantz israel has never had a better friend than you for israel's prime minister the strategy has been clear portray himself as the only politician capable of playing in the big league keeping israel safe and scoring wins such as last week's u.s. indorsement it was really sovereignty over the occupied golan heights like his

friend in the white house he's gone on the attack against the media and the legal establishment whose investigation into lavish gifts and alleged media manipulation he calls a witch hunt nonetheless in the middle of the campaign his attorney general decided enough real witches were found to recommend indictment for bribery fraud and breach of trust which netanyahu denies it remained an issue for a few days on the agenda and then and then the agenda when the news agenda went on elsewhere if you are very adept at moving the news agenda and inventing using events that happened to to change the public discourse he switched the focus to the mobile phone of his opponent benny gantz after report it had been hacked by iran insinuating it might contain incriminating personal information and you know me not only from my cell phone in recent days the attacks of switch to ganser is mental stability and stamina to go with the mantra that the man netanyahu made army chief in twenty eleven is weak and of the left in response cancer is focusing on new
5:24 am
corruption allegations and what he calls netanyahu weakness over gaza nonetheless one former senior israeli negotiator sees gantz taking a different approach on the palestinian issue he doesn't want to continue to rule in the people and this is in israel one of the most important litmus this between. liber us and the conservative blue and white party is a last minute creation with two other former army chiefs and netanyahu is former finance minister at its own it's an unashamedly pragmatic project to get lit and young out of office but winning the election in itself isn't enough it then becomes about putting together a governing coalition of parties represented in the israeli parliament the knesset and even if his likud party comes second at the polls that is where benjamin netanyahu has a distinct advantage but there have also been persistent leaks not totally refuted

marcus was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul as a body still hasn't been found a cult killings are international pressure increase on the saudi leadership specifically the crown prince who has been accused of ordering his murder andrew symonds reports. the cia may have pointed the finger of suspicion of mohammed bin salma ruler of saudi arabia but nevertheless it's this data itself that's in charge of bringing jamal khashoggi is given as to justice and maybe other investigations but not on show any sign of taking the case away from saudi officials who vehemently deny the crown prince ordered his murder. turkey has worked relentlessly is attempting to get extradition of the men saudi arabia had accused of being part of a rogue plot to murder because georgie from the very outset turkish investigators suspected the saudis were more engaged in a whitewash than an inquiry and the un has acknowledged that turkey was prevented
5:39 am
from getting access to the murder scene at a crucial time turkish leaks to the media showed c.c.t.v. pictures and the names of fifteen men suspected by turkey of having been part of it team that killed khashoggi in the saudi consulate. turkey asserted that it had strong evidence tape recordings held of the gruesome murder it passed on to foreign governments and the cia but body couldn't be found. also you know to do with any in the war in iraq was last november the saudi public prosecutor announced that out of twenty one suspects taken into custody eleven had been indicted and he said five could face the death penalty on charges of ordering and committing the crime and the motion is agreed to u.s. senators have provided some hope for those campaigning for an independent investigation but last month closed door briefing at the white house ended with little achieved senators including republican lindsey graham said the meeting was

andrew symonds. and the us president has accused germany of failing to pay its fair share into nato speaking after talks with the organization secretary general in washington donald trump warned that members contributions to the security alliance will have to increase and really help at reports. when germany obviously is not paying their fair share calling out members by name donald trump didn't hold back as he sat down at the white house with the nato secretary general crediting himself with the uptick in defense spending if you go back ten and fifteen years and it's a rollercoaster ride down in terms of payment and since i came to office it's a rocketship up the u.s. president's criticisms aren't new he's repeatedly attacked the nato alliance at one point calling it obsolete he's walked back those criticisms but routinely complains the us shoulders nato's defense burden it helps them there in europe helps them
5:42 am
a lot more than it helps us trumps views have made nato leaders wary of their partnership in twenty seventeen he refused to endorse the mutual defense commitment in place since one thousand nine hundred forty nine known as article five of the nato treaty some reports and suggested president trump has privately told advisors he wants to withdraw from nato potentially destroying the alliance that's why many nato members remain suspicious of the u.s. commitment to nato members fear a weakened alliance without the united states would be powerless to contain russia's advance into ukraine and threats to its neighbors that's why steps have been taken to strengthen the pact as a result of trump's threats and spurred on intentionally perhaps a movement towards european autonomy greater european autonomy so it's been happening for a long time but i think maybe it helps the europeans pick up the pace a little bit of building their own capability separate from nato but for all of
