the stories that must go just zero. he is in israel leaders from both parties claim victory as the vote counting continues. and you're watching all of these are live from doha also coming up. a new leader takes charge of the country's late for work remains to be uncertain. and setbacks for u.n. efforts to help refugees trapped in detention centers and fighting around the capital continues. and pressure from the u.s. congress to end american involvement in the war and yemen.
so exit polls in israel show no clear winner in the election that seen as a referendum on the four time prime minister benjamin netanyahu. former military chief benny gantz from the centrist blue and white alliance is projected to win thirty seven seats while the official results may not come for days as this claimed victory calling it a historic vote. they said we will not go into politics and we did not say we won't commit what he did they said we want you not. to say we were mean and we will and we were. well the incumbent prime minister benjamin netanyahu of the likud party has also claimed victory there were celebrations at the party headquarters that asked the exit polls began to appear that anyone who is expected
to address his supporters but we may see the vote as a setback for the long term leader who has promised to annex jewish settlements in the occupied west bank ahead of the polls. i'm very excited that the people of israel gave me their trust for a fifth time and a bigger trust them before. and they will move i'm telling you again the people of israel gave their trust for us and this is a president i cannot remember when we got more seats according to most exit polls the right are going will continue to lead the state of israel in the next four years our correspondent gary foster was at the liquid head party headquarters in tel aviv. yes the second victory speech that we've heard so far this evening the first coming from benny gantz his main challenger and now this one some hours later
coming from the leader of the likud party. and so now the prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu he was very clear in that speech that he had one that is likud. benny gantz and more importantly in terms of the pragmatic next steps that the israeli right and what he said the right along with the leadership of likud will lead israel for the next four years he called this all unannounced into a victory given the circumstances he pointed back here towards us in the media ranks. and even seeing a chorus of boos from the crowd below so he's saying that despite what happened earlier straightaway after the polls closed at ten pm local time some four hours ago. giving either a dead heat or a victory of some few seats to the rival blue and white party now shortly after that has been recalibrated by the two main news channels to give him
a one seat advantage thirty five seats to thirty four to his likud is now saying this is a victory that he has in the past now to go to the president asked of him a new coalition government and rule for another four years. let's take a look at what happens next well there are a hundred twenty seats in the israeli parliament are the knesset and to make it in a party needs to win at least three point two five percent of the total votes that's about four seats no party has ever achieved an outright majority and sixty one seats are needed to form a government the president will choose the candidate he thinks has the best chance of forming a coalition and this person that has forty two days to form a government if they const the leader with the second best chance gets twenty eight days to try and failing that it can even go to a third candidate. castros want to training us reaction force and joins us from washington so heidi has this playing out over there. so i don't know if you caught
in the victory speech of daniel who when the cameras hold out wide in the audience there was a big trump sign and that kind of says it all doesn't it the two men president donald trump and benjamin netanyahu have really been in lockstep since the day that trump took office started with him withdrawing the u.s. from the rand agreement which nine yahoo had said he had pressed the u.s. to do then it was moving the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem and just a month ago. breaking with decades of u.s. foreign policy when trump said that he would recognize is really an exaggeration of the golan heights and that move particularly was seen by many as a gift horse to netanyahu that came at the hour of his greatest political need that is when those allegations of. corruption was really disclosed about the
israeli prime minister and of course then on the eve of the israeli elections when netanyahu announced that he would begin an exaggeration is also of parts of the west bank trump has since been conspicuously silent on that front and we have seen all of this being displayed the friendship the closeness between these two leaders as part of netanyahu whose campaign we saw the two in shaking hands on and on yahoo's campaign posters all over israel with his visit to the white house coming just a month before the election and finally today in that trump banner which we just saw at netanyahu is victory speech how the official results are still do but will the outcome impact in any way the peace plan that he will unveil eventually. it may be back the timing of this peace plan if indeed one exists if it ever is unveiled because it has been shrouded in secrecy certainly president trump has been
talking it up calling it the deal of the century that his son in law gerry questioner is said to be working on but no one really knows what it contains and it's only rumor that now really eventually once the leader is selected in israel that that maybe the tide for war of the information to be revealed as to what it may contain it's still a huge on known trump has said previously had he's given some mild support for a two state solution but today is secretary of state my pump a zero was addressing members of congress and he was asked point blank whether the administration still supports two state solution and his answer was that ultimately these rallies and palestinians will decide how to resolve this but what is clear is that because of all of the political maneuvering and the cover that the trouble ministration has given to israel for under its right wing turn under nine yahoo
that that that may have strengthened that yahoo's hand as you approach this election how does your cost or with washington's veer of those israeli elections thank you. turning to some of the day's other news as interim leader has pledged to hold free and fair elections within days of their big seller says he has no political ambitions of his own and he will set up an independent committee to oversee the poll but many of jury and still remain skeptical of our ports. this is the. ninety days until a new president is elected. the speaker of the upper house of parliament. was appointed interim president by the parliament a few days after our lives he's beautifully designed his decision followed weeks of unprecedented protests against his will but with a plea a cause a replacement faces
a daunting task he's widely unpopular and seen by many algerians as a member of the same elite accused of corruption votes and inefficient governors eager to build bridges with skeptical opponents made to public statements on tuesday and announced the setting up of an independent committee to oversee the presidential elections in any year i want to unify the nation and carry out elections which are transparent and proper the government will also instructed the department to supervise these elections honestly in a fair and impartial fashion i urge everybody to overcome our differences and work together to cooperate to lay the cornerstone for a new all geria the interim president also emphasized he had no intention to run in the upcoming elections but on the streets the discontent cont'd years. the same protesters who wanted to flip out unhappy with been silas appointed and
they are determined to push for a real change. we have come out today in order to oppose been salah ben feller leave we don't need you. we are here so the ones who are governing the country leave because they are robbing and not building the country they are destroying in . a serious political crisis began in february when president bush announced he would be seeking a fifth term in office he'd been in power since nineteen ninety nine but rarely seen in public since suffering a stroke in two thousand and thirteen after weeks of protests calling for him to step down the army withdrew its support for the eighty two year old president and the jury has longest serving president eventually resigned but for many algerians their fight is far from over they want
a clean sweep of the political establishment at the national unity government to lead the transition to democracy about al-jazeera. the middle east and north africa analysts and joins us on skype from montgomery alabama in the united states good to have you on promises of an independent commission in promises of new elections transparent free and fair vote why isn't this appeasing the protesters. because simply of two things one is there is no trust at all between the public the street and the government and the institution of the government we have seen elections before in one thousand nine hundred nine in two thousand and four where promises are clean and fair and transparent elections where made but they were not met we've seen also massive for our electoral fraud.
perpetrated by the former presidents bill to pfleger to be elected although no we're not we're so the first issue is struck the second issue is is that the street says the beginning since some of cambridge twenty second had been asking has been asking the opposition leaders of the good of the movement's lekker bush actually you are or a severe injury lead you have been asking or to go beyond the constitutional framework what had been offered today with the appointment of been silent as a president interim president is that what you have follows in the institutional framework and institutional steps according to the application of article one hundred two that has been rejected completely by for example so going to you know you says that the constitution right now is obsolete ok but is there a credible process that can take place that's different from the one that's been
offered that will not equate to suddenly create a power vacuum and that will put forward a leader that is a compromise to both sides. what for example mr magoo shirt she asked for and other leaders is there at. business stays as well as a president interim president but no elections can be held in ninety days it's impossible really so what they're asking for is the establishment a constitutional assembly to ratify in new constitution or hedley amend the constitution that we have right now in algeria and then after that process they call for a new presidential elections held in the rule of the constitution so what they want is a constitutional assembly the drafting of a constitution right to the occasional bit of a river random to a popular rip random to vote up and down that new constitution in then we go to
a process of an electoral process where you have presidential column injury and local elections what we have right now with this nomination of the server and he's promised to have a presidential election that is credible which nobody believes really is that the system the political power in the euro try to same itself it's a way of it's a hail mary pass to be honest with you to save what is left of the our june. power system right now industry is very much. at rejecting all of this and we've seen it today for example in the product as were students you know jews have called for been started to go away and there are promises of. more progress to come ok thank you very much ali great to have you on the program

cesar's the secretary general has called i don't know. the way it has more details from tripoli. here in the city center of the libyan capital life looks normal it's totally different from the situation on the outskirts of the capital where the fighting is going on between forces loyal to the world on the one hand and forces loyal to the tripoli based government of national accord on the other hand but people here are still there are still very worried they say that they're worried that the fighting in the outskirts of tripoli might affect their lives here especially economy they're afraid that the value of the libyan dinar might be decreased again because of the fighting also they're worried that other sectors might be affected by the fighting like education and health sectors many
people here were counting on the u.n. sponsored peace talks as a way out of the ongoing crisis but as the united nations support the mission in libya has postponed the general national conference that was supposed to be held in the city over the dam is on the full two years of this month many people here are now uncertain they were counting on the that conference as a way hour to put an end to the ongoing fighting and the transition transitional phases in libya by sitting dates for general elections. the u.s. speaker of the house nancy pelosi wants the president to end american involvement in the war in yemen by signing a resolution passed by congress last week pelosi says the situation in yemen has left and scar and stain on the conscience of the world donald trump says he'll veto
