6:00 pm
wanting some of the greatest challenges that humanity has ever faced. and i really believe that the only way we can do that is with compassion and generosity and compromise. because up the only way we can try to solve any of these problem is together. that's why i'm 0 is so important. we make those connections. we've never had a president who has literally for 4 to 5 years, repeatedly attacked our democracy. you don't lose your lair at the compliance. we don't have a narrative. i have a question. we're hitting their brain where people can't get treated and death will for even further. join me rachelle perry on up front as my guest, them around the world. take the hot seat and we debate the big talk for ethan pricing issues here on al jazeera. ah,
6:01 pm
this is al jazeera ah. hello, the whole rahman you're watching the out. is there a news? i live for my headquarters here in dough all coming up in the next 60 minutes. voting for francis next parliament president monro microns. coalition base is a tough challenge from a left wing blog, lead by joan duke mellon, short legal demolitions or collective punishment. indian authorities bulldoze the properties of several muslims who demonstrated against the governing b. j. p. running out of fuels for lang, pronounced as a weekly ration to address shortages that have led to nationwide protests and nearly half a 1000000 people flee ukraine's war for moldova. but is the former soviet state also and the threat it's prime minister joins us live on the program. and later in sport, who hear from the australian and peruvian coaches ahead of the crunch, woke up playoff and informing the one that will champion next the stuff and extends
6:02 pm
his lead in the standings of the claiming b as a b john grown pre ah welcome to the news our voters in france, so choosing that new parliament in an election that could determine if president man will not crawl will succeed in pushing through reforms. maxwell's coalition holds the majority of seats in the outgoing national assembly, but he's facing a challenge from a left wing block less than 2 months after being reelected. 577 seats are being contested in the 1st round. so let's get straight over the general hull, who's outside the polling station in paris, and there's a great deal at stake here. isn't there in this particular election. jonah there is voting as you say, on going in this 1st round of the parliamentary elections. we know, of course now who the president is, the question is, how will france's laws be made? how will the country actually be governed?
6:03 pm
and that's what's being decided here. and while for the past 5 years, emmanuel macro and has held both the presidency and the parliament in his hands, what happens next could be rather less clear. cut his might 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 about like history. so i think the essential question of our era is climate and the planet. and that important things must be done immediately of 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 jean luc melon, show me if the leftists greens and communists do well, they could block much of microns agenda, making france,
6:04 pm
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 peace 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 his coalition has its own i is about how to deal with france, his cost of living crisis, soaring inflation that alone e u policy and the war in ukraine. it is entirely possible that in the new
6:05 pm
parliament, the centrists could find their way blocked. at every turn, 5 years ago a 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. now as i said, these 2 political forces have very different visions of the future. here in france, the left is one to raise taxes on the rich raised the minimum wage, lower the retirement age. the sentries want to raise the retirement age, lower taxes, and reform the welfare system. 289 seats is the number required for any side to obtain a majority in the new parliament. but remember this, even if the left is don't achieve that figure, the system means that even a significant my minority has significant power to block, to disrupt, so that the new national assembly, when it's formed, after the run of next week look, set to frustrate, to undermine president microns 2nd term agenda general empowers thanks very much.
6:06 pm
let's cross over to raymond sarah l y, and she's a researcher in comparative law at the university of to lose capital goods happy with us on the program. obviously, mellon shaw has gathered together a group of disparate political groups all representing different sorts of minorities or political persuasions. just in general terms. how important is the minority vote and do such groups come out in numbers to vote? well, it's a very hard question to answer because we actually don't have official members as to for whom minority board but clearly and we have seen that in the presidential election, vulnerable minorities tend to vote for parties who actually tried to be from the interest all who are less able and mental should indeed be extremely great with minorities. now,
6:07 pm
it is not without critics either. these new coalition that middle shall manage to gather which by the way, also by the general less or so had some critiques from minority, saying that he did not choose minorities to actually be part of the government and to run for elections. so we have a clear picture of the 2nd round, when alliances all the islands will have to be made. so let's talk about the necessity of friends, because obviously there are different ethnic groups who feel that they are french or were french. they were born that or have some sort of colonial connection to france. do those minorities feel part of the electoral process that they are part of france and they are part of the, the process itself in being part of the country that is inclusive of them. it's you know, people of immigrant background,
6:08 pm
whatever that means i want to ask until when those who are born and raised in france with great grandparents were of you know, for example, north africa origin or the western african origin. and so launch can be fully confident friends, french, and i would say that minorities in branch and select the vulnerable communities just to be treated as their fellow citizens equally. and don't want to be, you know, treated in a different way. and we all know that racism and discrimination is a huge issue in friends that he'll need to be address humorously. unfortunately, we have seen that these category of people have been given franchise and, and usually they are here. they are being use this and weaponized and instrumental lives when the filtration is dire and we need them vote. so there is a lot of work to do, but it's starting to change. we see people from these quote unquote minority groups trying to run for election, but however,
6:09 pm
it's still very tough. but there is some hold that things might change one day. would you have to try to find a way to do that? you have touched on the far right, for example, of often demonized minority groups whose history as we say, you know, may not be from france. so, but from colonial france and links some to the french state and you say they have been politicized. i mean, a minority groups that you speak to do they get sick to death of being part of this tennis match between the left and the right. and yet they had never actually consulted or deemed to be respected enough to talk to about how they feel. yes, absolutely, and you know where the far right, of course goes after these groups, but all the mainstream parties as well, including the lead. and that's why, by the way, the lead had been so divided and, and i think there is a really frustration with the group of people don't arabic, communities to not be addressed to, to not be consulted on issues that directly affected them. because we also of all
6:10 pm
we talk about is secretaries of immigration in a way to go after this category of people. but you know what, they have the frame, you know, issues of the rest of the population, unemployment, you know, access to public services, higher education, and so on. and i think that's the frustration these people wants to be french and yet as to concentrate as you know, aliens in their own county. well, let's talk about this disparate group of the left wing if they are so divided, they have different opinions offices we know, but coalesce and gather around melon show how will macro exploit this if we look to run off in a 2nd round vote next week. well it's, it's a days all over again. i mean, we have seen that in the past residential election at the 2nd round when mike tried to reach out these category of people that he needs. so if you need the votes for
6:11 pm
them, and i think it's pretty much the same here, with the exception that this time i think that michael knows very well that for him, the left winning is a threat to his parking, which ironically speaking is not so device as well. so again, the question is with whom michael is going to have an alliance with the right wing, which also is very divided and weak. or this part of the lead the hardliner. and you know, that can raise those who actually hold the same kind of discourse. so on which side will he be and i'm, i won't be surprised if indeed feel free reach out to these people. but if you will, they will see what happens. rima aloe and from the university of to lose. thank you so much. thank you for having me. still a, had him on the algebra news out, trying to vows to fight to the end, to prevent taiwanese independence accusing the u. s. a forcing asian countries to

6:23 pm
formed in solidarity with ukraine. outside the european commission building in brussels. people are showing their support for ukraine's e. u candidacy. residents lensky signed an application for them bishop, for days after russia launched its invasion in february, the executive will make a recommendation next week, whether to grant candidate status, but the process could still take decades. another recent applicant for membership is ukraine's neighbor to the west, moldova, the former soviet state fairs. it could be drawn into the conflict. moldova already has russian soldiers on its doorstep, about 1500 stationed in the moscow back to break away region of trans district. russia says that part of a peacekeeping agreement, trans history. you see there shows a border with ukraine. although over is one of europe poorest countries reliant on cheap rushing gas. it's government wants to change that and link. it's an tricity grid with the use in march. the country has also taken in nearly half
6:24 pm
a 1000000 ukrainian refugees, the highest number per capita of any european country. i'm joined now by the prime minister of mold over natalia gallery, who's here in doha prime minister. very good of you to take some time to speak to us here on al jazeera, how concerned are you that the war is getting closer to moldova borders? we are of course, concerned about her, the escalation of the war. for now we do not have any information or that would indicate that moldova is under immediate threats. but certainly we are looking for ways to keep their situation calm and also to build the resilience of the country or in various areas and to make sure that her, our citizens are not her affected the more than they already are, economically socially. and otherwise,
6:25 pm
moldova does defined itself as the neutral country, but next to ukraine to tell me how your country, as you say it is building up, its resilience is taking measures to protect itself. do you feel you need to protect yourself from russia? and if russia is successful in ukraine, do you not worry that you might be next? oh we do think that we need to accelerate sir our development in a way that would make us more resilient in terms of our security, in terms of our energy supply, in terms of our economy. we are the most affected country after crane, or we are have significance, economic consequences because of the disruption in logistic chains in trade in remittances. and sir, you know, we are facing very high inflation, one of the highest in europe at 29 percent already. so we are,
6:26 pm
of course, are doing everything that we can, both her in terms of social programs, diversifying our markets, finding alternative sources of energy, in order to maintain social cohesion and political stability. and we'll touch on those as well as we continue with this interview. but obviously the politics of what's going on in the region a so very obvious to everybody. moscow back propaganda groups recently labeled your president. my son do a pro, if he was a pro european thinker, a nazi that's a reminiscent of the way moscow termed those in the dumbass region of ukraine before invading. is this a warning shot to choose? now we hope not that we believe that or, you know, international law should be account and i, you know, every country has the right to self determination has the right for it,
6:27 pm
sir. sovereignty and territorial integrity to be respected. my mother has never hidden. it's a european choice, in fact that we have an association agreement for 8 years or with a you, we have a deep and comprehensive free trade agreements. we have been making efforts in terms of bringing our legislation on our standards, close to those of the european union and as ukraine we very much look forward to the decision of the european council and we hope that it will be a positive one. and moldova will also become a candidate country of the and, and it was whizzing pictures of you, shaky houses shall michelle or of the e. u. how difficult is it though to, to balance this and be a neutral countries have a neutral stance. when you're a landlocked country with neighboring ukraine at war with russia and you yourselves, have your own pro russian back to break away region within your own borders of
6:28 pm
trans mystery. a you have a very difficult job right now and trying to balance all of those issues. indeed sir, it is a very difficult situation. and moldova has been hit by a shock sa, multiple shocks and one after another. ah, you know, the come, the old countries were facing the consequences of the quote at van demick. in october we had an energy crisis, and sir, we were seeing high inflation even before the war. and now of course sir, are the consequences of the war are extremely dire, as you mention, we do need to, ah, you know, maintain a balance, or we are need to, ah, you know, help our people understand how to get through these difficult times and, oh,
6:29 pm
you know what comes next. so are we, we are very certain about our european choice, and we hope that, ah, the european union member states agree, are you in any way talking to moscow at any level at prime minister level orbits? president level about what's going on that there are discussions that are held in a through diplomatic channels. okay. russia obviously it says it's defending, it's russian ethnic speaking moldova, in trans and history. and i come back to that question that there are russian troops, us and apparently there for peacekeeping duties, yet there's never been any conflict to waive the majority of moldova and trans mistrial. so have you not told russia to remove its troops off your land?
6:30 pm
let me be very clear, ah, we need to have international law upheld and we need countries to be certain that their sovereignty and territorial integrity is protected under international law and the current multilateral framework of corporation. and moldova has used this framework or to constantly and consistently called for the withdrawal of the russian troops from the mold of and territory. there has been an agreement on this, or under the o. c auspices. and this has not happened, and i, you know, we continue to say that the troops are stationed on our territory illegally. and we continue to appeal to the international community to support us in their
6:31 pm
shoring. that international commitments are upheld. we are and neutral country. and this neutrality is not only enshrined in the constitution but is largely supported by our population. but of course we do have to consider, you know, what other guarantees of this neutrality and how this helps moldova, to maintain it, sir, for security and stability. but beyond a neutrality, if international law is not a pounds than there, you know, even guarantees like of the nature that had been given previously to ukraine, do not. they assure security and stability. your country has been very generous in accepting many ukrainian refugees. how much of a strain has that put on your infrastructure and what sort of help have you had from your european neighbors, all the international community to meet the needs that you require.
6:32 pm
you know the mold of and people have really shown in the last 3 months that we are a small country with a big heart. oh the very 1st wave of refugees that came in. okay. my through moldova, at some point. mold overhead to the highest number of refugees per capita of any european country. we had half a 1000000 refugees that have crossed the border between the ukraine and moldova, and about 80000. i still, in moldova, majority of them are children. of course, this was only possible because it wasn't just the government that it was the entire society that has mobilized them. we had thousands of volunteers. we had a non governmental organization,
6:33 pm
private sector organizations working to provide help to ukrainian refugees. we are now looking into ways in which these refugees can be integrated. we have taken very swift decisions under the emergency committee to allow for example, the right of work their right to education and health services. but as you mention, this does a put a strain on our already limited resources. so we have a cold or for assistance from our you partners, but also from ah, other international partners. recently we had a donors conference, sir, which was, are organized by germany, france, and romania. and we have received some budget support from the
6:34 pm
european union. we have received a all financing ah, through their ah, international monetary fund. and so, ah, you know, loans from our partners or on concessional terms such as poland for example. but of course, if we need that much more, or you know, we need equipment or we need training for our teachers and doctors with goods ah, medication if. and that's if we're talking about education and her health sector and, and prime minister for all of that to work he sibling, as you say, you have limited resources. you've had a donors conference, it all sort of circles back to what's happening right now. doesn't it? because for your country to work like any other country at the moment in the world, you need energy, any energy to switch the lights on to have those computers working. you need fuel
6:35 pm
for transport in all sorts of forms to get around the country. so we come back to the fact that moldova does import much of its gas from russia. and that supply has often been threatened to beat, switched off by moscow in this last couple of years, or certainly the last couple of months or, or other countries of trying to find alternative solutions to their energy needs. are you in that same boat as well? looking for different alternatives and, and where are you looking indeed? oh, we do have for a problem with energy security and security of supply both of gas and electricity. and even though we have a long term contract, a disputed death issue and puts this contract on the threat. and in terms of electricity, we actually are currently an important thing,
6:36 pm
electricity from ukraine and from the separate this transistor and the region, the end of these contracts are monthly. so every month we have to renegotiate the terms for our electricity supply. under the circumstances, the government puts a lot of effort into our finding ah, alternative sources of supply in the energy crisis that happened in october, moldova, for the 1st time in its history, accessed the sport market, and bought some con, to quantities on the market. but of course, sir, the prices are extraordinarily high, even with a long term contract that now with gas from the tariff has increased by a 6 times for our consumers. the price of electricity has gone up
6:37 pm
40 percent already and we don't know how much longer we can maintain the current, the current contracts at current terms. and so we are looking for either alternatives. her including her here in katara. we are particularly looking for building up strategic reserves. ah, for at least 23 months of supply. in case we face an extraordinary situation. but we are also looking for diversifying or sources in the long term. both in terms of the countries from which we important but also in terms of the type of energy that we produce. and we are rapidly reforming our regulations on our policies in terms of renewable energy. unfortunately that we have to leave it to prime minister natalia garcia of moldova. thank you so much for your time and
6:38 pm
for joining us here on 20. thank you very much. now the golden arches are gone, but american style cheeseburgers on the menu in moscow. again, the 1st mcdonald's restaurant in russia has reopened, and a new branding and ownership chain is now called delicious. full stop battle. she has all 850 russian app. it's in march, falling the invasion of ukraine. any restaurants are all owned by a local licensee, but the american company has the option to buy back its locations within 15 years. sir lanka is limiting the amount of fuel people can buy per week. they plans to impose rations to deal with a severe shortage. however, 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 the worst economic crisis, and independence is also dealing with shortages of food and medicine due to a lack of foreign currency. michelle fernandez has moved from columbus. it's
6:39 pm
a sort of a double edged sword at the moment. i mean, 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, at this station actually has fuel stocks, but there's an on ending line of vehicles, both petrol and diesel. there are 3 wheelers or the local taxes. there are essentially motor bikes. 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
6:40 pm
things to do things like getting on with their lives going and putting on a food on the table, earning their money at. they cannot afford to spend a, you know, 234 years, sometimes 10 and sometimes as bad as 24 hours in patrick used sometimes at 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 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. reporters without borders his calling for an end to impunity in regard to the killing of alger agenda serene. i will actually, it says that a proper investigation into serene staff has still not being carried out, although it's been one month and she was shot in ahead by the force as well. an
