the conservative candidate in guatemala's presidential election has claimed victory after early results. a commanding lead over the center left contender and former 1st lady sandra john holeman we've been speaking to him all evening as we look to these results what more can you tell us about this well is it a claiming he is actually claiming victory. yes he was claiming victory he was already talking about what he's going to do in terms of organizing his transition team and we now have more than 90 percent of the votes counted and he's got an almost 20 point lead so it does seem difficult that he would win from this point on so let me just take the time to tell you a little bit about this man who got to muller's next president is a train surgeon he was head of the prison system in guatemala and during that time
11:04 am
as head of the prison system he was accused and then acquitted of being responsible for the extra dudish you killing of prisoners who've taken over a jail for quite some time he's sort of. go to rip taishan is a bit of a hard hand in terms of what he wants to do now in terms of security he wants bring back the death penalty he wants to also restrict prison rights for gang members who've been put in jail rich can jew who visits for example in terms of the economy he thinks the investments going to be the answer for guatemala this is a country where more than half of the population lives in poverty so he's promising promising to bring foreign investment he's promising to bring more tourism and he says that by doing that he can create an investment and the investment will stop guatemalans from having to go north having to migrate to the united states this
11:05 am
country since the biggest number of people to the united states so that's his plan and it seems like he's inching closer to victory as john homan in mexico city just keeping an eye on the results coming out of guatemala actually joining us on skype now from guatemala city. who's the editor in chief of the news and analysis website no modern it's nice to have you with us you will have heard what john was just saying there talking about the new president or the man who is claiming victory at least wanting to bring in investment believing that can change the country do you think he's realistic in that goal. many thanks for the invitation come i don't think it's realistic but the my lai not that attractive for investment that can. over think. we don't have a great expectational some him if you see the results we have already 90 per
11:06 am
cent of the vote that he will be the next president but it has been the low was certain that my credit history only a. 3rd of 38 percent of the people participated in this election because the elections were were full of all mistakes. illegalities and he's not a man. to be a good c.e.o. of what the model. even so it looks like he will win this election and his biggest. issue i guess to deal with is migration isn't it i think john touched on it in his reports but central american migration through to the united states this idea of guatemala being some sort of buffer zone how does he deal with this very pressing issue. to do or don't even my point 5 percent of the
11:07 am
what the mother of the left during the last 6 months 250000 people at least when he was asked during the campaign about a 3rd say remember throw one through both what you want that my luck he said that he didn't lose doubt about that then when he was asked again today he said that he will really go and try to learn more about it but you know we. continuation of the current government is very. organized crime and corruption and therefore we do not expect the situation to change in the country they don't have a team with no more for their experience in the public office soul so the usual we even towards or as bad as it is in there have for years we'll be element that is very important that the u.n. commission that we have for the last 10 years of work fighting corruption really
11:08 am
will stop in one month. joining us from guatemala city thank you do appreciate your analysis just looking at some live pictures as well from guatemala city of some happy vote has there who have probably cause they voted for. the who has claimed victory but as matthew was pointing out to us that need turnout of about 30 percent the lowest in the democratic history so there will be those who will contest his well maybe legitimacy you could say as president but he is claiming victory at this point and a big job ahead particularly to do with migration and the economy for. we are also looking at early results from argentina's presidential primary vote which show the opposition candidate alberto fernandez is on track to wind down your following this one from point a general bring us up to date.
11:09 am
who are voting here are liking what tomorrow is compulsory so very large turnout in these primaries and giving a much larger than expected victory but often and this was always possible that he would win but he's won by something like 15 percentage points over the encumber president. with something like 47 percent of the vote i think even his most loyal supporters didn't expect a victory quite that big so they've been celebrating he's due to speak any moment maurice your mark he himself took the stage even before the official 1st official results were announced to talk about what he called a very bad election for his party obliging himself and his supporters to work even harder before the 1st round of presidential elections in october to try to convince the people that they were on the right track that his austerity measures his attempts to bring the economy under control were the right ones they don't seem to be listening to him they don't seem to agree with him so we have to wait and see
11:10 am
later on monday exactly how the country reacts are the markets react to this but it does seem as though the finance has won a convincing victory in these primary elections his biggest issue is to deal with the economy don't you we're talking to our guests about guatemala and migration being the big thing there it's the economy in argentina. very much so and. came to office in 2015 he made some very similar prominent busy promises to what the well looks like the new president in guatemala there is making he talked about foreign investment he talked about bringing the economy under control he's got very little in the way of foreign investment poverty which he gained he promised to try to deal with is on the rise in argentina and perhaps the biggest issue here is inflation it's one of the worst in the world it's something around 50 percent annually it's worse than it was under
11:11 am
the previous government cristina fernandez the kitchen that was something he said he would control and he hasn't managed to do that and that in his 4th year in office seems to be hitting home very hard and that does seem to be the issue which is at the heart the hearts of many arjen signs and they've made their views felt with these primary elections left over to an hour or 2 months to go until those elections it's very little time really from what is your market to try to turn things around to convince people that he can change in the times and is likely still to be very hard fought battle in these weeks that remain interesting to watch the elections isn't it in latin america that is done. now a true one of the world's most endangered species the mountain gorillas of central africa they are making a slow but from john returned back from the brink of extinction since 2010 the population has increased by a quarter to just over

a fragile success story critically endangered for years and now their status has been adjusted to endangered the latest census shows or just over a 1000 gorillas spanning rwanda uganda and the democratic republic of congo from just around $200.00 a few decades ago but that still doesn't seem a large number when you think that it's the whole world's entire population of these incredible animals. stephanie decker al-jazeera in the video. beautiful report that was still ahead for you on al-jazeera. tear gas and arrests in hong kong the police are out in full force as protest rallies across the territory. all because for. years say they're in desperate need of help and that they have been abandoned by the venezuelan government and in sport plates face serious punishment after several
