6:02 pm
to make its way towards the north so any rain across this area to help relieve some of the drought is what we do need but of course we do need much more rain on a longer period of time up to the north though brisbane is looking at $26.00 degrees up towards townsville at $29.00 and a very warm day for alice springs with a temperature of $33.00 degrees. can see plays and experience the world like never before can't own it ways going places together.

6:04 pm
called we both say they won the 1st round the winning candidate needs more than 50 percent of the vote many china's ians think that's unlikely to happen and expect a runoff in november stephanie decker has more from the capital tunis. half an hour before voting was due to start a small queue had already formed tunisians waiting to have their say on who is going to be their next president. they should have i came here to vote in order to get someone who can get this country out of the crisis the economic crisis the financial crisis we have lots of debts it's very frustrating for me so i'm not fully convinced about any of the candidates because there are so many and i haven't seen them from the beginning it's the 2nd time tunisians are electing their president since the revolution 8 years ago tunisia is often quoted is the only democratic success story to come out of the so-called arab spring the 1st country
6:05 pm
where its people took to the streets bringing an end to the 23 year rule of president saying. this is democracy in action yes there are many different candidates to choose from but the question is what can they offer the people are they going to offer real change or is the next president going to be more of the same voters here are telling us they're tired of empty promises. the next president is pressing issues to deal with unemployment is higher than it was before the 2011 revolution the security situation is a concern and corruption remains rampant the new leader will face a population hungry for change especially the youth many have told us they don't trust the politicians shola can move to make sure these elections are a good thing it's the 1st time we've had a debate on t.v. with our presidential candidates we used to watch the debates on t.v. in the united states and now we're watching the same thing here in tunisia that's the 1st. national and international observers were polling stations across the
6:06 pm
country we knew just a gradual slew of people but interestingly we saw many elderly coming in very in the morning and being very well organized and there has been no issues and so so far it's been good we're just hoping that by now the young people would have come on rules and increase the percentage of luminary result scituate or with the official announcement on tuesday the winning candidate will need more than 50 percent of the vote and no one expects that to happen the likely scenario out of 24 candidates the top 2 will head to a runoff in november by the end of the day tunisian should know who they are stephanie decker al-jazeera tunis ok let's talk more about our top story the aftermath of attacks in saudi arabia's oil facilities with me is measured as wary of the director of the gulf study center at qatar university thanks very much for joining us on. i want to talk to you about this phrase that president donald trump
6:07 pm
has is that the u.s. is locked and loaded to deliver a day it is establish who it was that was responsible for what do you interpret in that there is a context the context is related to the the basically bolton. resignation or sacking of him by the president and also to the new environment about possible meeting between trump and and i think the president wants to say won't send the message to the world that if there is there is a logical position to be taken to him to take that position he doesn't need bolton he doesn't need he's the president secondly i think there is sort of attempt to destroy any opportunity to have a meeting between rouhani and trump. on the one side with the meeting in london and in new york so i think. those are 2 reasons i think behind all of this. according
6:08 pm
to his 3 years in the office he used basically force of twice one in syria and the 2nd one and yemen and both they targeted one of them the one basically the syrian regime after using chemical weapons otherwise he is not the man who want to use violence. weapon to achieve his goals he is in and have been saying that yes it was definitely them that they're using new drones which have new engines and that's why they were able to achieve this if the evidence arrives that it was then that there is an identifiable target how great is the rest that donald trump is essentially backing him the self into a corner where he is going to have to take some sort of action let's let's put the drone issue in a context the drone the use of a drone in the last 34 months exactly similar to the hacking phenomena when people
6:09 pm
use technology to hard. you know governments it's unlikely it's unusual to see the player who did this actually acknowledging that organizing and by doing that they are saying this they are sending a message to saudi arabia that if we cannot fight you but we don't have the air forces we can defeat you in other fronts having said that i think there is no clear evidence yet about the sponsibility of who he is about that i think the whole he is using it for political purposes i think if there is an you know a curate evidence in the americans' hand or in the saudis hand i think the americans may target some of the who fears in yemen and that would explain the statement said by trump i think if there's any reaction if it would be in yemen and anyplace. let me whiteness out a little bit looking at the tension and the geopolitics that exist in the gulf at the moment if it isn't there who sees who would have benefit to do something like
6:10 pm
this. you know there are different players i think iran is benefiting from the iran iran let's remember beginning of may 2019 iran sent the message that if we don't export our oil none of the other players will be able to export this oil and actually they implement this you know listen member of incident let's remember the . events. and to remember also lately what's happened on these drones from different ok just so the iranians are the only player who are benefiting without basically they are saying no one kind of play with us and basically they are testing the other side remember they did all of this they have the confrontation with you over the ship and they still they are actually keeping the british ship with iran and there is not really action they actually you know the american drone has been destroyed on the iranian soil the american has or is
6:11 pm
not a sponsor so iran is actually testing the water of the actions no seriously action has been taken yet and i think iran is if iran is behind this they are looking for more to see what would be a possibility action especially when it comes to the oil and this helps basically has a serious impact on the prices and we saw it in the last 24 hours obviously it will affect more in the next few weeks as well to get your analysis and mostly as you measured thank you very much indeed. police have surrounded a group of zimbabwean doctors who are demanding the release of their union leader doctors have blocked roads after a march into the capital's largest hospital the zimbabwe hospital doctors association says its president peter magowan body was abducted on saturday it recently called for a pay strike after complaining about how the poor state of hospitals on low salaries have been affecting people symbolically and doctors are in less than $40.00 u.s. dollars a month out of the tonsils in the capital far less hot on the heart of just give us
6:12 pm
an indication of what's been going on. while doctors in the capital and in the 2nd think he'd pull away say the. hospital until they quote a doctor going day has been found they say they think you know that i think they security agents all they know is that over the weekend you think that a number of take on the phone and posted a social media they do you think followed by strange men and being they was. thinking but you told me the great win in. mother brother in that he's been saying for weeks along with other doctors that the money they ending is simply not enough they are struggling to make ends meet so the people you colleagues have been trying to mock you pasted him in the middle got was off his body and to be allowed to come by the right police the police the gay thing the matter the aging doctors there. either go back to work and to remain and it may be investigating what happened.
6:13 pm

6:16 pm
is unlikely. to result in the terminology used in israel to discourse knowledge a political settlement that sees keeping the israeli settlements and outposts as it is they talk about the jordan valley as a place they can go there was never a consensus about this issues in the past for many palestinians it doesn't matter who leads the government as israel shifts more to the right this radio elections heavily influence palestinians lives but they don't have a say in. the occupied west bank workers and u.s. automaker general motors have go. on strike for the 1st time in more than a decade or than 49000 people have walked off the job 31 factories across the country the united auto workers union is pushing for better wages health benefits and job security guarantees threatened to stay on strike until an agreement is reached. it could cripple g.m. if the strike lasts long enough currently the automaker has been preparing for some

how concerned are arabian officials about the finger is already being pointed at them well this is not something new for arabian officials they've said that this is not the 1st time the u.s. government has accused them of carrying out such attacks and this is something that they are used to the foreign ministry spokesperson up us moussavi reiterated the country's position and that is that the iranians are not supplying the hoose the rebels in yemen with any military aid that their relationship with this group is a political and diplomatic one let's hear some of what he had to say. that we dismissed these allegations iran has explicitly said that it defines the rights of the human people accusing iran for these attacks is in line with the a mix and to seek to policy and we are not surprised by such communist countries who make these comments do so to make themselves feel more secure and reaching the
6:55 pm
goal as we can the nations which are totally baseless. the analysts that we've spoken to here believe that this latest accusation by the u.s. government is another attempt to try and pressure this meeting to take place between u.s. president donald trump and his arabian counterpart hassan rouhani later this month at the united nations general assembly but the government spokesperson earlier where he reiterated iran's position and that is that no meeting will take place between has some rouhani and donald trump until the united states. leaves these sanctions are imposed on iran and come back to the nuclear agreement which they abandoned last year that's the position here in this move is being seen as another attempt to try and force iran back to this negotiating table. from to her own thanks for that. saudi arabia has about $188000000.00 barrels in reserve that's
6:56 pm
just under 40 days of creeks processing capacity millions of the reserves are kept in the country itself plus 3 locations in the netherlands japan and egypt the us has the largest emergency supply in the world at 644000000 barrels only the us president can order the reserves to be used and that's only happened 3 times you can take around 2 weeks for any oil taken from the reserves to have any effect on the global supply after the us the largest reserves are in china japan and south korea all 3 countries are major importers of saudi oil south korea has said it will consider releasing from its reserves if needed and joy the nanny is an economist and former deputy prime minister of jordan joins us now live from amman good to have you with us so do you think the announcement by countries that they will release or will consider releasing their reserves will that be enough to calm the markets. a little bit about. last

month's made by president donald trump yesterday of the museum it did not actually affect the market at all on the contrary of the market sean volatility between one minute and the other but still it is on the rise so therefore i think that. an increase of floor almost 20 percent in the price of w t r on the price of brant mix is an indication that the market is still jittery and does not he does not feel calm about this so it is an erratic situation do you think the right is going to continue to go up. well that is a possibility but not for long because i think what will happen right now there is the challenge in front of saudi arabia faces is that it should continue to supply

its usual customers with oil otherwise they would start either digging into their own started petroleum reserves or they would look for are for alternatives to buy from other markets and so therefore i think that saudis will have to go to their oil reserves if the situation is going to linger for a long time i believe that many countries would probably interfere in from using live reserves because they want to use them for their own domestic purposes and emergencies and they prefer to keep them otherwise they will have to play an issue that is theirs they use with higher prices so in a way the pens like you said in your report it depends on how long. to. go in to take and how 1st it can be done whether there were that of the increase in oil will be gradual and or do they have to wait until the end of

that process before they can go back right in normal production also depends a little bit on what the houthi stew right whether this becomes a regular thing a tax on the ram co yeah this is that is a very important point here because of all right now for instance you you have you have the possibility that saudis might retaliate it and if the saudis it earlier than the whole of the hoses photos she would then it doesn't matter whether the iranians are actually at being them or not or where they come from iraq that becomes an open war that is going to really infuriate the markets to limits that probably we have not seen in a long time no doubt what will this do to the saudi budget i mean prices may be higher but its production is down. yes it is hard because as you know the i.m.f. has recently issued a report saying that while the projected deficit in saudi arabia's budget this year
7:00 pm
was supposed to be 4.2 percent it's not. just a myth of that 7 percent that he sent the most recent i.m.f. report projected it to be over 7 percent so in a way if this comes proves 2 or less 4 door to linger for one month or 2 months then i believe that this saudi deficit could go up to 10 or 15 percent plus the fact that there is g.d.p. will also be impacted so the. re-assure of budget deficit to g.d.p. may not look as big as it should be because there might be a decrease or slower growth in g.d.p. which makes the difference there is sure to look less than what it is actually all right good to get your thoughts and analysis on that thank you so much joe. thank you thank you sam.
