5:07 pm
saying there have been irregularities or many palatial to an extend that could actually change the whole outcome of the vote but of course it's not only election day that matters but it's also what happens during the run up to these elections and yes the complaining that's what many here say what observers say has been very unfair it has been an unfair playing field missed out on in his ruling a k p that just isn't a vote of the party have got much more but much more time on the public t.v. channels and the opposition some opposition parties got almost no ad time at all this vote took place under a state of emergency many critical journalists academicians are actually in jail so a little concerned consolation for the opposition maybe now is that under these conditions missed out on still only got fifty two percent of the vote which means that about health of the population is not standing behind him and that's what the
5:08 pm
opposition tries to keep telling themselves now to keep the moral. how divided you you're having said that is the country today. well the country is certainly more divided than ever i mean turkey is a deeply polarized society that's what we've been observing in the past months in the past years even but you have to understand for peace of course is for mr allen support as he is that he is their survival so to say they are very thankful for what he did for the country building hospitals bridges apple's other mega projects and this has earned him their loyalty and this might also explain the high water turn our eighty seven percent of the people went to the polls for the opposition on the other hand for everyone who wants to have media freedom the ones to decide for
5:09 pm
themselves what they can see online who want to travel to other countries who want to have a free education system miss out on is actually not the right choice for the country so yes there is a deep divide and this is likely to continue you leon reporting from the turkish capital ankara thank you i would like to bring up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world. the situation on a migrant rescue boat stranded in the mediterranean is approaching quote an emergency that's according to a group of german lawmakers who boarded the vessel yesterday the lifeline operated by a german n.g.o.s carrying two hundred thirty migrants they've been waiting off the italian coast since thursday after they were denied entry. anti terror police and friends have arrested ten people with alleged links to the radical far right official say the individuals were planning to carry out attacks on muslims the suspects were captured at the weekend over the weekend in operations across france

5:12 pm
good to see you. so why are people saying that most ella is threatening to quit the national team what happened there's been a lot of controversy going on about the team camp which is in grozny the chechen republic of russia in russia and it's very far for egypt to travel from grozny to most of their team games so it's a bit weird why they chose a place and actually what people are saying is that they chose a place because they're following an invitation from the chechen leader ramadan could year olds and now they held a banquet and the team had to go there and at this banquet mohamed salah was given the honorary citizenship of the chechen republic and this is something that moments i was not comfortable with at all if we see the pictures from him at the banquet he looks you know he's kind of just suffering through his position right to the leader he really does look like he's having fun and he doesn't like to be instrumental ised for politics quite frankly so he apparently quick to threaten to quit the national team and there were some reports before their game today that he was not in the starting lineup finally he was he scored so he's here for now our series
5:13 pm
here for now is just before us let's talk about the soccer the football performance in this world cup but there was a lot of anticipation a lot of build. but unfortunately they didn't do very well why do you think that is well i think first of all we have to talk all the expectations a little bit because mohamed salah is a great player there's no doubt about that but football is a team sport there's ten other nine other players on the pitch plus the keeper who have to perform and who have to perform at his standard for him to be able to carry the team and actually he was missing in the first game mohamed salah because he was still recovering from his injury and i think his teammates did quite well and they were trying very hard against or god save the point only very late in the game did they have to concede a goal and then they lost and in the second game mohamed salah was there but he wasn't really looking fit he was not his best and he couldn't really perform up to that let's not forget that this is only egypt's third world cup appearance ever they have never won a world cup game and they're playing right now they still have the chance thanks to salons goal so let's see how that pans out how that pans out what else is happening today in the world cup very exciting day because right now we're in the final phase
5:14 pm
of the group stage and that means all teams of every group are playing at the same time so we already heard that. egypt with so large facing saudi arabia were why are playing against the hosts russia and later today it's really exciting as well because spain the world champions two thousand and ten they play morocco and portugal with superstar cristiana ronaldo they face iran ok so there's so much to look forward to it is alarming about noah. and we'll talk later we'll catch up later and before i let you go want to remind you of our main headline right now. european election monitors have criticized the president urged on selection victory in turkey always see the monitors said erica won and his ruling party had a quote i'm going to advantage including in media coverage burdwan words we elected as president with more than half. the votes all right well don't forget you can
