11:04 pm
a really high price for it yes some of them one of them. is very well known she was the first one who crossed the borders and entered saudi arabia and she was she was driving and then she was jailed and others who already did this to this same step they were are now in a living in saudi arabia because their necks are and they're afraid of getting back maybe this will change but it's only a maybe that's why a lot of human who have been being doing a lot of things in order to be able to drive are today outside. saudi arabia i just talked to some who are in usa somewhere and kind of but they are for the moment they are happy it's a big moment let's talk about my saudi woman herself now joined on the line by tom adore ellen yummie she's a journalist and a writer and one of the women who's been working so actively to win this right tom adore thanks for being with us on day w. news how does it feel this moment for you it's
11:05 pm
a very exciting moment but i cannot even begin to describe how likely you know if this is starting to fall there is a look at all saudi females have been waiting for i mean i'm sure not all said that we have a jury. who sacrificed a lot of their family time their peace of mind and their effort to to out for this right to actively go behind the wheel and take out to the trees and risk being caught and cannot be doing i suppose i mean i i thank you and i appreciate every single one of those who falls for that life and i'm sure our state for all of all of those who have and it is for me has to our day will congratulation that's a big moment for you what's next we're going to focus your attention on now. well now that the dry think has have been that this side or at least out of the
11:06 pm
way. there are other issues for saudi women and other rights that's are yet to be gained and taking baths like. those that are connected to the target just puts them and her right to have an easy case to have asked this to health care and due to travel perhaps without the permission of a male guardian and even those laws have been. there was a royal decree asking that all the laws that ask women for their guardians that their mission would be summarized ag and records and taken up to the local courts for research and there we are optimistic that next week we will see sue and i will decree. you know revising and and cancelling all those laws that have to do with the guardianship and so there's
11:07 pm
still a lot to fight for but this is an important victory for you we don't want to take up any more of your time i'm sure you have some celebrating to do tell me more thanks for speaking with us today on the tank via thank you so much german chancellor angela merkel is coming under increasing pressure she works to cobble together a new government her varian sister party the c.s.u. insist that policy changes have to happen now after the conservatives big election losses but the chancellor already has or handsful if she thinks to build a coalition with both the pro-business free democrats and the environmentalist greens two parties that don't have much in common. the chancellor and the head of her sister party the c.s.u. have an urgent task winning back their voters who supported the far right in sunday's election the question is how and that's a source of friction between the two party leaders the former transportation minister a member of the c.s.u. says the conservatives work is cut out for them. then after this year
11:08 pm
we have to remember the whole political spectrum for and from the center to the democratic right wing. that could mean the chancellor and her conservatives drifting further right to steal the populist fire the two parties are mulling over their options for the next coalition governments make up for merkel there's only one possibility governing with the business friendly free democrats and the environmentally oriented green party the greens say such a coalition would come at a price pushing through the greens agenda. we face enormous challenges the greens are prepared to make them head on but it's clear they can't be any sleepwalking here if the coalition works out fine but if it doesn't forget and. the free democrats say it's imperative that the two conservative sister parties find common ground. it's always the same with the c.s.u.
11:09 pm
you never know if they'll have the same position tomorrow i think they could use a session in couples counseling with medicals party at. the social democrats have reiterated their position after their punishing election result they will not join a new government with the chancellor. via gear and indeed we're going into opposition that's in service of the country and the service to our democracy the wrangling for a new governing coalition continues. for some analysis i'm joined now by correspondent simon young simon welcome to the studio america needs to win. win back the voters that she lost on the right flank of the party happened to do that you know that really is the challenge frankel americal one of many at the moment but conservatives lost a million voters most of the f.t. so if they really go to look at that clearly it means that they've got to find clearer and more persuasive responses to the concerns that people who voted
11:10 pm
a hefty have chief among them of course concerns about the immigration policy she's got to show that she's taking that seriously i think inevitably it means whatever coalition she's able to put together and that is far from clear at the moment as we've seen there. she will have to express how she's going to control immigration numbers in the coming years while as she says continuing with a humanitarian cause yeah and it's not going to be easy to seduce those voters back into the conservative party while flirting with the coalition partners the f.d.p. a pro-business party and the environmentalists group it seems like an impossible task is that realistic well it's very tricky as everybody is acknowledging i mean with the free democrats perhaps it won't be so difficult i mean they have in this election campaign said that they think immigration needs to be tightened up now in favor of a an immigration law
11:11 pm
a sort of canadian style point system as they call it of course focusing on people who are really useful immediately to the german economy rather than just sort of mass immigration that's happened over the last couple of years with the greens it's going to be more difficult to have that tightening because they have focused very much on the human humanitarian message they've said how much they supported policy of welcome so you know squaring that circle in particular with the bavarian conservatives who are calling for much tougher line in fact for an absolute cap on numbers you know two to square that circle is going to be very very tricky in these coalition talks and a lot of people saying it's unlikely that coalition could happen before christmas if it's all young thanks for taking us through some of the points. european council president donald tusk says sufficient progress has not been made on brics that talks and works move ahead to the next stage but he did welcome what he called
11:12 pm

11:13 pm
including asylum seekers border protection and intelligence. what's missing in europe today particularly with regard to defense it is a common strategic culture in our incapacity to act together in a convincing manner puts our credibility in question. as well as strategic issues he also called for the creation of a transnational agency to foster european innovation financial stability and corporate tax were also in areas where he said much deeper cooperation was needed. for you to. instead of concentrating all our energy on our internal divisions as we've been doing now for far too long instead of losing our way in arguments in a european civil war arguing about budgets finances politics or whatever we need to consider how to build a europe that strong. but
