4:00 pm

4:01 pm
ah, hello. this is in use our on al jazeera. i'm fully back to live in doha, coming up in the next 60 minutes. a voting for francis next parliament president demanded my course coalition face is a tough challenge. from a left wing block, led by charlie, camino shown china vows to fight to the end to prevent ty, with taiwan independence, accusing the u. s. of forcing asian countries to choose sides. also this, our running out of fuel sri lanka announces a weekly ration to address shortages that have led to nationwide protests and, and legal demolitions or collective punishment. indian authorities bulldozer properties of several muslims who demonstrated against the governing b. j. p party. i'm joining real. go with the max, the staff and crunches victory the as
4:02 pm
a by john chrome pre to extend his overall championship lead. and a pot worth $4000000.00 action from the breakaway go series back by saudi arabia. ah, thank you for joining us, voters in france for choosing very new parliament in an election that could determine a present demand. my call will succeed in pushing through reforms across coalition holds the majority of seats in the assembly. but he's facing a challenge from a left wing block nearly 2 months after being re elected $577.00 states being contested. live to algae, here is john hall, who's outside of pulling station in paris. so john, what's at stake in these elections? well voted, goes on, as you say, in the 1st round of these parliamentary elections. we know, of course, who the president is, but how will the laws of the country be made?
4:03 pm
how will the country actually be governed? that's what's being decided now. and while for the last 5 years, emanuel macro has held but the presidency and upon him entry system in his hands. what happens next could be somewhat less clear. cut his my report. 2 months after returning emanuel macro to the presidency, french voters are electing a parliament high in their minds. the climate crisis and cost of living is a task like history. so i think the essential question of our era is climate and the planet, and that important things must be done immediately. georgia tech measures and needed in terms of the current situation to deal without purchasing power and competitiveness. the question is, how do we despise the current situation? keep moving forward. microns, centrist ensemble coalition faces a strong challenge from a far left alliance, built by john luke melon,
4:04 pm
shown if the leftists greens and communists do well, they could block much of microns agenda, making france, as one analyst pointed out ungovernable. the country's ungovernable. if you have a weak majority, that does not mean that you can run the country and you very well have in the next month. a huge uprise of people saying, well, we are not happy with the president's decisions. we do not consider that the n piece can solve the problem. so where can we solve it? and you can have this st. let's say st. democracy, france has a strong tradition of st. protest like the yellow vests that made microns 1st term, so uncomfortable with their demands for economic justice and political reform. this election could provoke similar scenes. the left is coalition has its own ideas about how to deal with frances cost of living crisis, soaring inflation that alone you policy and the war in ukraine. it is entirely
4:05 pm
possible that in the new parliament, the centrists could find their way blocked. at every turn. 5 years ago, the manual macro completed a clean sweep of power with his centrist winning the parliament as well. his 2nd term as president could turn out rather differently. these are 2 political forces with very different visions of the future. the leftists and the center of the left is want to raise taxes on the wealthy, raised the minimum wage and lower the retirement age. the central want to raise the retirement age, lower taxes, and reform the welfare system. 289. the number of seats required by either side when an outright majority. but even if there is no outright majority for the left is a strong minority, can still wield significant power in the system so that the new national assembly, when it's formed, looks set to be able,
4:06 pm
potentially to frustrate and undermine president microns 2nd term agenda. jonah, thank you for that. john hall alive, fair in paris, early i spoke to on elizabeth motel is a political commentator based in the french capital. she says the 2nd round of voting may introduce a 3rd party to the race. i think sonic middle shoals alliance because it's not his fault, he alone. but i think his alliance has got momentum and they might get close to majority. it seems almost impossible that in a country which has voted in the presidential elections for 2 thirds on right. when candidates that the left could get that closed, but that's what it means when you get your manage to organize an alliance of all the parties, even if they disagree among themselves. ok, he, i would, this is the 1st route. what's going to you really interesting is the 2nd round in a week's time. or when you've got the of the candidates that remain above 12 and
4:07 pm
a half percent of the registered voters, they can stay. and so it's not just going to be one candidate to get another one, like in the presidential election. it is going to be actually possibly what we and france called triangular electrons, which means that you have say, a macros. east up, you have a right when you're what's left of them and then you've got, you've got the new purse, the minute. sure thing. and that is one instance in which if they can't get to terms one with the other one in which men are short, men are sure m p 's could get in. but that's only in the, in the 2nd round next week. and emma michael's faith in himself is not at the end of the day, people will be scared of genetic menache or it may or may not. in other world news, china's defense minister way thing. he's warning that beijing will crush any move towards independence for taiwan. he made the comments on the last day of asia, tom security summit in singapore,
4:08 pm
the shangri la di knock jessica washington reports from the conference at a security summit in singapore. the most highly anticipated speaker of the 3 day conference took the stage with forcible words darya, durable. he. we do not bully others, but we will not allow ourselves to be bullied. but if anyone dares to attackers the people's liberation army will not hesitate to fight buck troy, a short speech that covered a range of regional flesh points all your we will resolutely crush any attempt to pursue taiwan independence. if anyone does, to succeed taiwan from china, we will not hesitate to fight. we will fight at all costs. being quite analysts say way fung, huh. has made beijing's priorities clear. he wanted to talk to his audience about what they're doing in asia, what they expect over taiwan, and why the united states is actually responsible in china's eyes for the instability in this region. in his speech way framed washington as
4:09 pm
a meddling power, one that tries to create instability in the asia pacific or in his woods, one that tries to hijack countries in the region to create division. in contrast, way says china's military is a force for peace. and saw extremely is new defense minister has told out 0. there are many questions that need answers. city we are saying a very significant build up by china. i was the biggest military build up that we've seen in the world since the end of the 2nd world war. i'm at, it's really important that that occur on a transparent wise. the pacific has also been a topic of discussion at the summit and following increased engagement from the ging. we're really rich at malls since the strategy is revitalizing its relations with those countries. if we go out in specific countries to the work place, they are interested the center of aaron casement, then the risk takes care of itself. we will become the natural partner of choice.
4:10 pm
we are very full for these opportunity. the g defense minister, one of the few representatives from the pacific fielded questions about his regents ties to beijing and meeting with chinese. of course, everybody knows that we've met the americans. we met the japanese, we met the chinese, we met the australians, you name it. as organizes wrap up this year's summit uncertainty over the regions future remains intended to provide diplomatic avenues to help solve differences. it's also provided delegates the chance to wear their grievances for the world to see jessica washington al jazeera singapore. already we spoke to me a new ins who's from the international institute for strategic studies. she says a china stands on china and taiwan is clear. for this is regards to taiwan. in particular, what we saw from general away from her counselor, we from her was a reiteration of trying to stand on the issue of taiwan. and i would use
4:11 pm
independence. i think in some ways that was a reaction as to what we heard from president bite in a few weeks ago. in terms of the question whether or not the united states would intervene militarily in taiwan scenario. and whether or not the united states had moved on from it to t. jake ambiguity with regards to a stance on taiwan and general and of course said that strategic will signal that you hadn't changed. and of course, that there was no support for taiwan independence and that, that policy was still in place. but at the end of the day, i think general way and trying to felt the need to re emphasize and re state how strong their feelings on this point are. what i found particularly interesting though, was at the end of talking about the us position with regards to shy one. there was a small comment with regards to other countries who might support taiwan as well. and that they will supposedly also not succeed from general perspective. and that, i think pointed to perhaps other countries in the region are abroad. the concept
4:12 pm
here is really that the u. s. has no say in the region extra regional country, this kind of calls them aren't here to determine regional security and that it's up to countries within the region to determine that. 8 of course, of the countries within the region also have an interest in having extra regional countries and the united states at present and active and engage in the region as well. so there is a contradiction there. 20 more head on this news hour, including a russian strike in the east of ukraine, fed that chemical plant on fire hundreds are reported to be sheltering inside. new bron same french fries. mcdonald's golden arches are getting a rush and relaunch in moscow. pushkin's square and the defending champions of tampa, bay lightning make the family cup final transferred. here in a row, you'll have the details in ah
4:13 pm
sure lanka is limiting the amount of fuel people can bi weekly. it plans to impose rations to deal with a severe shortage, but the energy minister hasn't specified how much more terrorists will be allowed to purchase. the government is under intense pressure after months of protest against its worse economic crisis since independence. it's also coping with a shortages of food and medicine because of a lack of foreign currency. we now fernandez has more from colombo. it's a sort of a double edged sword at the moment. i mean, we've heard this announcement from the minister of energy content video saker a little while. oh, earlier today. the fact that he has no choice but to start registering consumers. and then basically giving them a guaranteed caught up a week. now it all looks good when he announces it, but obviously for consumers, it's going to mean that they're going to want to see this actually are put into action. what you see behind me is a busy precision air in the heart of colombo,
4:14 pm
a vis a station actually has fuel stocks. but there's an on ending line of because both petrol and diesel. there are 3 wheelers or the local taxis. there are essentially motor bikes. people who've been queueing off for hours is one gentleman who's just sitting a little bit off camera that's been here since 6 o'clock in the morning. and he still hasn't got all the supplies he needed. now people obviously have much better things to do things like getting on with their lives going and putting up, you know, food on the table earning their money or they cannot afford to spend a, you know, 234 years, sometimes 10 and sometimes as bad as 24 hours in frederick use, sometimes a fuel stations which are close. the bosses haven't even arrived yet. so things are really bad. so one thing that will happen if the rationing actually happens, the people might be able to save a bit of time. they will have a guaranteed amount of fuel that they will be able to get. but given this sort of
4:15 pm
kill us we have seen in recent weak people will want to see that the government is able to actually do this. while the prime minister says sri lanka may have to buy more oil from russia to ease shortages, we need the f word, and now we are negotiating with private supply. the stuff that we gwen by anything in the private supplies with us. and we buy from them, part of it that issue, he a, that does a lot of wireless going around which is, which can be source back informally, to iran or russia. sometimes you may not know what you're buying, but we are looking at the sources of oil. well, that traction sources from the middle east. we've been taking where we have been purchasing, put on joining us now from sri lanka, capital colombo, is china. done. singer who's any economists with frontier research. thank you very
4:16 pm
much for being with us on al jazeera. how exactly is this petro rationing going to work? do you know, and do you think it will help? well, it's not very clear exactly though mechanism, which it'll look and it's supposed to be coming into place sometime in july july. while the minister will see it could help in offense if it helps to manage the kind of demand. so probably been running our fuel supply to support from india through a credit line. now that supposed to be running out this month, but once that runs out with the we have, we have to deal with payment offset. so that would mean managing the demand would be a key part of it. so it could help, but it's all very much i'll be in the bank and government as we heard from the prime minister, has approached moscow to help secure direct supplies of, of russian oil. how effective a solution is that in the, in the short and long term, and what would be the implications for sure lucky think on from what i understand
4:17 pm
moscow and the kinds of supplies that we might get from mosque. moscow would be limited to crew directly and from again what i understand our capacity to refine that code into the base rent these will be require isn't very large. we have one functioning, refining right now, and i don't think it's going to be a large proportion of our fuel requirements. so it will have a little bit of a positive impact that does go to a especially bit comes through at a lower cost from the compared to demetria and diesel. really be getting a premium right now. but whether it leads to a significant improvement in ration, i don't personally think that's necessarily likely. and even on the policy side, i'm not no expert on that, but also the size and the quantity being limited makes me feel that it might also be any kind of named magnitude that yeah, it's not just a fuel surprise, but also food shortages, as you know, this is true, lank is worse crisis since independence in 1914. just remind our viewers how we got
4:18 pm
to this point white that did this happen? well, we've had this budget have been problems and cut and take on the problems for a while. that led to us building up our debt special last 10 to 15 years in 2019 however, we instead of the tax cut and followed up, you know, bridging that the revenue shortage with a lot of money printing. monday. they show that there was a new government came in that essentially worse than the underlying problem. got locked out of capital markets, which been that we had residentially draw down our reserves down to what was effectively a beetle level number sometime in march, april this year. and i've been at that level of reserves, that's really no areas that you can go then essentially where we are right now. right now, china and india have offered credit lines that does not offer a lifeline or will it me more debt for sure. lanka. i mean, he does mean more dead. there's no question about it, but it is also a very, very critical life. life since about march of fuel supply has been mostly had to
4:19 pm
get credit like online, like i mentioned. so without that credit like war hadn't been there, we'd better have been to just being sometime in march of the day we had for example, $30.00 off the blackout. and that was at a point where the credit wasn't for the operation. so very much be the critical part of the country of buying right now. but that support is really running off in china, actually hasn't extend a lot of that kind of support to the extent india as of the last few months. so then the, and the question of you know, is that more upcoming from india will china step in a little bit more with other partners like japan? they say the e will they step in and how they manage from bridge? the point from here until at point at some point, maybe get them to design a program and somebody that should find it. try you dancing is thank you so much for talking to us about the thank you for sharing light on the situation in toronto . the ukraine
4:20 pm
says rush and shelling in severe don't yet in the east has caused a huge fire at a chemical plant where hundreds of civilians are believed to be sheltering. moscow has been focusing much of its fire power in the eastern region. the governor of lou han sc says he crane still controlled the chemical facility present voted me as landscape says ukraine will win the war, but he's asking allies for more ammunition and weapons. cha, stratford has more from keith. we came off the phone to a ukrainian deputy commander inside that city. several denounced one of only 2 cities. now that is not under full russian control in the loo, ganske region of don bass, that deputy commander saying to us that yes, there had been heavy shilling of that chemical plant. and that it was on fire. that chemical plant, a vast, great soviet built industrial complex that before the wall used to produce fertilizes and building material. it's located in the south,
4:21 pm
east of the city. we understand close to the river close to the river that separates the town several than exc. from the town of lucy chanced, which he tells us is also getting heavily shelled. we asked him whether he could firm reports that we've been hearing of the last couple of days about hundreds of civilians sheltering underneath that chemical plant. in several minutes, he was unable to confirm that he estimates that up to 2000 civilians may have died in several dynette amidst this heavy fighting. now this comes at a time when the ukrainians are complaining again that they don't have enough weapons from the west and those western weapons that they have been allocated or not getting here fast enough. so there are huge concerns yet again to day for room, mostly ukrainians, ability to be able to defend that city. and for the up to what we understand could be around $10000.00 civilians, either trapped inside that city or unwilling to leave. a human chain has formed in
4:22 pm
solidarity with ukraine outside the european commission building in brussels. people are showing their support for ukraine's e. u candidacy present. vitamins lensky signed an application for membership 4 days after rush a launch its invasion. in february, the e. u executive will make a recommendation next week on whether to grant candidate status, but the process could still take decades. the golden arches are gone, but american sol cheeseburgers are back on the menu in moscow. the 1st mcdonald's restaurant in russia has reopened under a new branding and the ownership. the chain is not called delicious, full stop, and donald channel 850 rush, not a launch following the invasion of ukraine. the new restaurants are owned by a local licensee, but the american company has the option to buy back its locations within 15 years to india and where more properties linked to muslim protesters have been demolished
4:23 pm
in the state of alter pradesh or 40. say they are only putting down illegal buildings, but why schools have previously accused the governing b. j. p of carrying out demolitions to intimidate muslims. that destruction follows days of riley's against 2 former b j. p. officials for making remarks against the prophet mohammed that many consider offensive. when i speak to sanjay hector about this, he's a senior advocate at the supreme court of india, and he's joining us from money pa city. thank you very much for speaking to us. first of all, are these family is legal under the law? relations are legal in the last book, but they are not legal if they are meant as the price it. let's put it this way. if under the municipal, all your painting does not conform to them, then after you are given an after you have an opportunity to say that i only in the
4:24 pm
last instance can religion be ordered and that can be subject to review by the court. demolition cannot be ordered as it pleases, with revenge or as punishment for any criminal act. today what is happening is that protests and is suspected of organizing. he didn't know his how's the how's that he lives. even if it doesn't have to be under his ownership. sometimes comes and get a board or these action. so colleen that will be a part of the law. and i suspect that if they are challenged in court, i'm calling to fame in the future are going to come down very heavily on the indian authorities. so insist that these demolitions are demolitions of illegally constructed homes under what law and what process has to be done. you know,
4:25 pm
before this happened, yes, if they were illegally constructed homes, then you would have to give them a notice saying that now legally make it a phone call, whatever it is, the regulation. and if that is not done, then you give them a notice of demolition. and data, but the person confirmed has a, has a right to be heard as a right the challenge that notice. but you cannot demolish a man's house, but progress. right? you cannot link it to the focus. neither 2 different things to get them. i'm this international have say, in my view, isn't my view and abuse of power. you say it's an abuse of power and i'm the senior national has said the simulations of largely owned most of the property amounts to collective punishment, which is also illegal under international law. do do the indian stories take these warnings seriously at all?
4:26 pm
i don't see this late in fact, right now, the effort seems to be that in malicious anything and everything that can be the activity of know any organize that of the purpose the opposition congress party has accused the ruling b, j. p of, of exempting itself from the constitution of india to share this view will be called the constitution of india whenever they feel like, i think it could be a vector to say that i did think that the constitution of india is an option that a document thank you so much for talking to us about this. thank you for sharing of you. sanjay hague. a senior advocate of the supreme court of india and 30 indian soldiers have been charged in connection with the killing of civilians in a botched military operation in december. but he say the soldiers use indiscriminate

4:38 pm
more than $5.00 a gallon the highest since 2008 prices a while above that in some states field in california is costing $6.43 per gallon. the rises being blamed for driving americas high inflation rate in 40 years cable is under, has more from buffalo, new york. the price of just about everything is going up in the united states, including the cost of petrol for the 1st time in 20 years, one gallon, or about $3.00 leaders of petrol. its averaging more than $5.00. here at this gas station in buffalo, new york, it's just under that at $4.99 a gallon. just in the last month. the price has gone up about $0.63. and in the past year about $2.00, there's a whole host of reasons on why it's going up so fast, but it's primarily comes down to 3 things. it's the sanctions on russia due to the
4:39 pm
