decide to run. but i hope that if the political leaders are not on the prime minister prime ministers will do everything to do to convince our colleagues in the parliament to. support this this. project. is going to identity in brussels so they had to compromise to reach these their these various names how popular are they. well there certainly well known figures that's for sure the nomination for the what some see as the jewel in the crown of the presidency of the european commission going to have on the lie and she's very well known across the continent as germany's foreign minister she of course is from chancellor merkel's own c.d.u. party and as such she is a representative of the european peoples party the center right group in the
10:03 pm
european parliament to these factions have really been lobbying for influence in the last few days as you were saying originally the frontrunner for that job was from the center left the dutch labor leader france to moments but he was seen as a toxic candidate by countries such as poland and hungary who he's been sharply critical of the other nominations will shall michel the belgian prime minister donald tusk in his press conference was suggesting that mr michel was ideal because as the leader of belgium a country which is of course so divided itself he would be a good person to get sides talking to each other and christine legarde very well known internationally managing director of the international monetary fund the press conference also saw mr to askand chancellor merkel welcome the fact that there was another woman so 2 big nominations for women but it's still not
10:04 pm
clear either whether the the the center left of the socialists and democrats are going to get any joy coming out of this because $11.00 nomination that we don't know or perhaps too is the who's going to be the president of the european parliament but also whether the parliament will actually ratify this package as you were just hearing from donald tusk it's not a foregone conclusion and there is a lot of unease let's say from some in the parliament the view. greens leading candidate has denounced this outcome as old europe at its worst calling on. the parliament to reject the nominations and i like the way it is that that's an option i suppose if they reject them but how likely are they in reality to do that. well it would be quite quite a departure from what's happened in previous rounds where where once the leaders
10:05 pm
have come to a coup some kind of compromise then the. respective blocs in the european parliament fail to to approve but it's it is possible i mean there are there is probably quite some. some disappointment among for example the social democrats and the people that make gains in may european elections such as the the the greens and of course those nationalist or populist parties such as for example the brics it party in the u.k. they're all they're all trying to have their say so it's going to be interesting what will happen in the next few days is the european parliament. starts to vote on wednesday but the mother thank you very much indeed. meanwhile the new intake of members of the european parliament have been sworn in that includes the brits at party who turned their backs as the european anthem was played during the opening
10:06 pm
ceremony maris li has more back. here comes trouble and its name is the brics it party it is now the biggest single party in the european parliament and as such is the best representation of how this institution is in flux as just one example has already threatened to help vote down the e.u. budgets and it doesn't like the way that europe does deals the whole way the group systems work again very undemocratic you know you have to tie up with people in 7 other countries and you know if you were leaving and everybody else wants to stay then there's no sense in that sort of britishers. they certainly started as they mean to go on turning their backs in the chamber during the inauguration ceremony as the european anthem was played. so there are new fault lines everywhere outside a big castle and demonstration in protest against spain for blocking their leader. from taking his seat inside. and across the floor of the chamber new rights wing
10:07 pm
populists viewed with fear and suspicion by the establishment sent to rights while over on the left surging greens and liberals many wearing yellow stop bricks it t. shirts are just as keyless lights this is not politics as usual we're all out there doing our social media and it's getting a lot more attention than it did before and we've got more journalists coming here as well and everything that raises the profile of european politics and helps people to understand how crucial it is to be part of the legal changes that are made here which is really we're leading the world in terms of legislation that protects people on the planet everything that can help that is a good thing so by the traditionally been the standards of strasburg this promises to be an argumentative european parliament with little sign the politicians are prepared simply to rubber stamp decisions. that have been made by the european commission in brussels proponents of political stability in europe will say that that's messy you could just as well argue that it's democracy in action. ask most

10:25 pm
event these are live pictures coming to us now northern chile along with parts of argentina new zealand is one of the few places in the world directly facing the sun right now if you just will see the moon passed right in front of a song blocking out the light for a few minutes while strong as based in northern chile say this so no eclipse holds particular significance it is a special compared to the previous ones is because it's a very rare occasion where we have a solar eclipse complete solar eclipse a total solar eclipse that passes over a major observatory so we actually here have the facilities to really analyze and study the eclipse of it with big telescopes and sophisticated instruments where you see an human not joins us live from valley why does this particular eclipse drawn so much attention. how long well you know people who are in love with eclipses apart from astronomers of course search or chase as they call it
10:26 pm
totality totality means being in what is called this very very narrow path of total darkness when the moon goes over a certain part of the planet earth and appears to totally covered the sun now that is a very narrow path as i say it's only 200 kilometers wide this year and it's and we're right in the middle of it right here in the l.t. valley but it's not enough as we've been seen as we've heard from those who have gone chase all over the world to see total eclipse isn't going to as many as 16 or 17 of them they say sometimes it rains or it's polluted or just too much light pollution as well and they can't see it properly but here the skies are absolutely pristine which is why you have some of the world's most important observatories and it's also why we have been seeing helicopters going back and forth shuttling the rich and famous to a camp that's just over the hill behind me where i'm talking about leonardo dicaprio. richard branson brian many many people that you've heard of and they're all here paying a lot of money to see it from that glam campus it's called ordinary people also are

deployed all over this valley with their little glasses and to see here just waiting to see this phenomenal andalusia as we talk to you watching the live pictures there we see the kind of the edge of it looks almost looks like the sun is being nibbled away that the edge it was new is that way that to people could come and watch these things. well more than that they couldn't watch the new didn't want to watch them because in the medieval days in ancient times people thought it was a bad omen the the ancient greeks thought that it meant that the gods were angry with human beings and in medieval times some people said that it meant and mystical figures like dragons were either eating or stealing the sun away from them and and the list goes on and on wolves are we eating the sun in taking it away and so people didn't understand what was going on now we can predict exactly when there is going to be a solar eclipse and that is bringing people from all over the world here to chile
10:28 pm
some 300000 people are have come here for this particular eclipse where as i say we should be able to really see it completely and it's and should be a fascinating experience when the only real danger now is you're the retina of your eyes unless you're wearing these very same very nice filters to be able to look directly at the sun lauren and how long will it actually last. well it's already let me see it's starting this now but it's a long process the whole thing takes about from from start to finish 2 hours but the real important part is 2 minutes and 39 seconds that's when the moon will appear to completely cover the sun and you'll see a range or as it's called a solar corona or crown around the sun peeking out and this of course is what astronomers are looking for but for ordinary people like mortals like us it's just going to look like an amazing experience. is in human thank you very much and i'm quite envious now you can go in put on the special glasses and have
