determine if present demand in my car was succeed in pushing through reforms. cause coalition has major, has a majority of seats in the national assembly, but he faces a strong challenge from a new block and a new left wing brock, john hall 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 it possible like history? so here i think the essential question of our era is climate and the planet. and that important things must be done immediately, 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 fall after lines built by zone. luke melon show me if the leftists greens and communists do well, they could block much of microns agenda, making france,
5:03 pm

5:04 pm
possible that in the new parliament, the centrists could find their way blocked. at every turn. 5 years ago, the manual micron completed a clean sweep of power with his centrist winning the parliament as well. his 2nd term as president, could turn out rather differently. jona whole al jazeera paris. i'm elizabeth motel is a political commentator base in paris. she says the 2nd round may introduce a 3rd party to the race. i think johnny middle initials 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 with 2 thirds on right when candidates at the left could get that close. 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. oh he, i would, this is the 1st route. what's going to you really interesting is the 2nd round in
5:05 pm
a week's time. when you've got the of the candidates that remain above 12 and a half percent of the registered voters, they can stay in. so it's not just going to be one candidate to get to another one . like in the presidential election, it is going to be actually possibly what we enforce called triangular electrons, which means that you have say, a mccraney stuff you have, 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 middle or short mean or sure and peace could get in. but that's only in the, in the 2nd round next week. and michael's faith in himself is that at the end of the day, people will be scared of johnny middle school. it may or may not. in other world news, china's defense minister way thing is warning that
5:06 pm
b j will crush any move towards independence in taiwan. he made the comments on the last day of asia top security summit in singapore, the shangri la dinah, jessica washington reports on the conference at a security summit in singapore. the most highly anticipated speaker of the 3 day conference took the stage with forceful 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 would 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 dares to succeed taiwan from china, we will not hesitate to fight. we will fight at all costs. quite analysts say, way fung her has made beijing's priorities clear. he wanted to talk to his audience
5:07 pm
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 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 sorry ester alias, new defense minister, has told al jazeera, 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 mobile. i'm and, and it's really important that that occur in a transparent wise the pacific has also been a topic of discussion at the summit and following increased engagement from the ging, where really richard miles says estrella is revitalizing its relations with those countries. if we go added sift galling countries, do the work
5:08 pm
a place their interests at the center of our engagement, and then the rest takes care of itself. we will become the natural partner of choice. we are eventful for these opportunity. vgm defense minister missed a few representatives from the pacific. fielded questions about his regents ties to beijing minister for that meeting with a 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 organizes wrap up this year's summit uncertainty over the regents 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 algebra singapore. me a new in this from the international institute for strategic studies. she says china has made it clear that he doesn't want the us involved in taiwan. quite nice with regard to taiwan in particular,
5:09 pm
what we far from general away from her and so comfortably from her was a reiteration of trying to stand on the issue of taiwan and wendy's independence. i think in some ways that was a reaction 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 your 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 the 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 regard to taiwan. there was a small comment with regards to other countries. you might support taiwan as well, and that they will supposedly also not succeed from general weight perspective. and
5:10 pm
that, i think pointed to perhaps other centers in the region are abroad. the concept 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. sri lanka is limiting the amount of heal. people can bi weekly plants, impose rations to deal with a severe shortage, but the energy minister hasn't specified how much motorists will be allowed to purchase. the government is under intense pressure after months of protests against where c can make conditions. the worse crisis since independence is also dealing with shortages of food and medicine because of a lack of foreign currency. and now fernandez has more from colombo. it's a sort of a double edged sword at the moment. i mean,
5:11 pm
we've heard this announcement from the minister of energy content of jessica 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 patrol station air in the heart of colombo, this station actually has fewer stalks, but there's an on ending line of where he goes both petrol and diesel. there are 3 wheelers, all the local taxes. there are essentially motorbike people who've been queueing up 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 of food on
5:12 pm
the table, earning their money. they cannot afford to spend a, you know, 234, sometimes 10 and sometimes as bad as 24 hours in frederick use, sometimes at fuel stations, which are close. the bows haven't even arrived yet. so things are really bad. so one thing that will happen if the rationing actually happens properly, 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 are the sort of chaos we have seen in recent weeks. our people will want to see that the government is able to actually do this. on the prime minister says, sri lanka may have to buy more oil from russia to ease shortages renewed before and now we are negotiating with a private supplier. you start that week when buy anything, it's a private supplies will give us and we buy from them. part of it that
5:13 pm
issue here is that there's a lot of ways 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 other sources of oil. was traditional sources from the middle east. we've been taking where we have been purchasing foot still ahead on al jazeera, a russian strike in the east of ukraine says the chemical plant on $500.00 reportedly sheltering inside and a building boom in the gambia field fire surge in the money sent home from abroad ah, awe
5:14 pm

5:15 pm
has reached mom by the showers ahead of it. brick yet in gujarat, in rochester, most of north india of course, is still dry, hot and dusty that goes to pakistan too. but there are occasional showers breaking out to relieve the heat. ah, what happens the in new york has implications all around the world. it's the home of the united nations. it's a center of international finance, international culture to make these stories resonate requires talking to everyday people to normal people. not just how are those there's and that's where i'll just get the mayor of the city. and i said you doing away with that was it was to get everybody on this international perspective with the human touch zooming way in and then pulling back out again. oh,
5:16 pm
the me a recap of our top stories on al jazeera voters in france were casting their ballast in the 1st round of parliamentary elections president demanded. my course correlation holds the majority in the assembly, but he's, he's being challenged by lecturing brock. led by john the command. i'm sure. china is defense minister away from hair has warned that for an interference in taiwan is due to fail. he was resting atop security conference in singapore and said beijing would fight to the end if taiwan tried to declare independence and sri lanka is imposing weekly hotel to limit the amount of fuel people can buy, it's suffering, it's worse economic crisis since independence with the shortage of the food fuel and medicine
