al jazeera. and for you. all of the talk started with high spirits and great transparency and we've reiterated our joint regard for the country a breakthrough in sudan as the military council and the protest leaders agree to bring civilians into the transitional government. but once again from doha santamaria with the world news from al-jazeera it is
polling day in spain left and right parties battling for power in the third general election and for here it's. also the u.n. recognize the libyan government is calling for foreign countries to immediately end their support for the war coming to. weeks for strongly condemn the evil of that seven inches of men. and that's off the shootings in a synagogue detectives in california are questioning i suspect to far right sympathize. hello again protesters in sudan struck a deal with the military that promises to move the nation towards civilian rule it finally happened at a meeting between military leaders and delegation which is representing some of the protest groups what they agreed was to form a joint council until new elections can be hills this is after the weeks of mass step. instructions that we have seen right across sudan that have continued really
even after the removal of the longtime president bashir morgan has a report now from. a breakthrough in the very first night of talks between the committee of sudan's ruling military council and the coalition of opposition parties they've been trying to find a way to rule the country until a deal can be reached on elections on saturday night the two sides reached a partial agreement to form a joint civilian military council that will supervise a transitional period so. the talks started with high spirits and great transparency and we've reiterated our joint regard for the country talks will continue and we are optimistic on reaching a final result that we can announce to the sudanese people as soon as possible. the coalition made up of opposition parties and the sudanese professionals association has been leading anti-government protests which began at the end of last year. sparked by a rise in fuel and bread prices but they quickly widened into demands for bashir to
step down and earlier this month a sit in outside the army headquarters in her tomb prompted the army to stage a coup. since bashir was ousted the military and the coalition have been in talks on a future government over the usually continues until i give you a rare for civilian government i research papers are we seeing the military council is sensible enough drugs that it stands out among some since. the sit in for is now in its fourth week as people wait for a new government the two sides will meet on sunday to try to work out how to deliver that as negotiations continue on the formation of a transitional government continue to keep pressure on the military council over the past three weeks more people have been arriving from different states to go on the sets and they want the billion and not the military to be there want to have the ultimate say incidents future protesters are now also focusing on foreign governments they accuse of interfering in sudan's affairs hundreds demonstrated in front of the. egyptian embassy in her on saturday egypt saudi arabia and the united
arab emirates want to see the military retain control of the country. foreign interference is only aimed to keep the military in power we want aid to come to the sudanese people and keep relations soley between the people and not the military. foreign interference impacts the decisions of the military council which we don't accept because we want a civilian government and this is the will of the people. to dance revolution for change started more than four months ago and these protesters say they will not give up until they achieve their goal is to believe in government morgan. and more with mohamed. it strikes me that the overriding picture is that this is a big step forward for these two sides but also that we see a protest movement. that just will not give up and is determined to keep the pressure on. i. think this is the
second most important step or achievement. the beginning of these. months ago and since that more particularly since that a move of former president. that agreement that was reached yesterday was only an initial agreement it's just one beginning of a long process of negotiations they have agreed to create a joint. council and that is going to be that. but the details are still being discussed and the second meeting the second round of talks is going to be held in the next few hours it was supposed to start in the morning but until now the two sides say they still need more discussions among themselves to present names and to make sure they present to the table final suggestions and proposals for these points the first point is has to do with the
number of. the military want to ten members three of them. from the military side so they want a large majority in the council civilians on the other side the protesters they want the council to be made up of fifteen members eight of them from the civilian side seven from the military side so they also want that simple majority for themselves. the other points include the length of the transition four years that's the demand by the protesters two years only that's the man by the military and each side has their explanation of why they chose that number of years these are only a few among many points including how to tackle corruption how to what nature of the government will harm is it. suggested by the protesters should be made up of only technocrats fully civilian cabinet to run the affairs of the country lots of
issues they have to discuss and expected the not expected actually to agree on those points today so it's going to take a few days pops. in khartoum thank you. voting in spain under way today with the country's politics more divided than at any time really in its recent democratic history no single party is predicted to win an outright majority after a campaign dominated by the rise of the far right as well as the issue of catalonia independence has our report now from madrid. a final cool to mobilize the party faithful spain socialist prime minister pedro sanchez surrounded by a sea of supporters urges them to go to the ballot box the country deserves to turn the page in the last seven years and look to the future with hope and excitement which is precisely what we are offering our citizens to the young what we are asking is that you vote for your future and therefore vote for the socialist party
. voters have a wide choice decades of dominance by two political parties has given way to a multi-party system the largest players are still the socialist party and the people's party but their influence is gradually ebbing away. in the socialists maybe to head in the polls in the lead up to the election but the reality is that even if either side does where the most votes he will still have to go to coalition with the far left regional parties if you fail to do that but it falls on to the people's marty and they were have to do a deal with the far right either way it is a big compromise for both parties. the main spoiler in this unpredictable election box capitalizing on the populist wave spreading through europe the anti immigration policies have resonated amongst voters angered at the status quo the constitutional crisis caused by catalonia as attempt to secede has also dominated
this campaign it's the first time a far right party has entered mainstream politics since the dictatorship of general franco so what does your own sovereignty won't be broken in catalonia it won't be surrendered in brussels we're not going to kneel down in front of those who don't respect the n.t. austerity together we can and center right citizens parties have a chance of being part of a national government. previous coalitions have struggled in spain disagreeing factions have failed to pass national budgets the makeup of the next government is far from clear polling ahead of sunday's vote suggested forty percent of voters were struggling to make up their minds there are some people in between p.p.o. there are some people whose if they've been between p.p.i. involved and then some of them between. so we can see that these not be your buds are all for you know one party. whatever the. result forming
a coalition is likely to take time and a reflection of what's happening across europe the only certainty is that the politics in spain has become more fractured more polarized a sign of the times when increasing combative political stage it's on the way i go al-jazeera madrid and more now from stephanie decker who's been a diversion in the precincts in the capital. there's been a steady stream of people coming here to cause their vote got the day very busy now thirty million people are registered to vote these elections are being called some of the most difficult to predict in the history of spain's democracy and that's also because there are now for the first time five different parties to choose from and also crucially around forty percent of spaniards hadn't yet made up their minds until today but the day is here and it's time to decide. this is what i'm looking
for me the most important thing is the best party wins and we move to a better country with more jobs with a better economy but most importantly more jobs. about the history of catalonia we have to find a solution for cuts alone yet their respects the opinion of everyone not just one side or the other side i would say equal equal rights equal pay for women. and the real feminist so i would like to live in in the spain where my daughter can receive that famous to opportunity says men do polls close at eight o'clock this evening and then it's about to knock off hours until spain will know what the numbers are is going to shift left or is going to shift right and then the difficult task of forming a coalition government to get exactly take weeks and weeks until spaniards know what the new government is going to look like libya's u.n. recognized government has told france stop dealing with the warlord continues to
lay siege to tripoli there was an airstrike on sunday by one of his helicopters which killed four and injured at least twenty three france has been accused by the tripoli based government of supporting hafter as his forces advance towards the capital here is more from mahmud of the wind in tripoli. clashes broke out again on the southern part of tripoli near the vicinity of the international in active airport as the forces loyal to the kidneys. the government of national called have advanced toward the center of the tripoli international airport it's very strategic because if the government forces recaptured the international airport they can easily cut the supporting law in coming before her.
