rock but they're not doing very well i can tell you iran is not doing very well but the regime shows little sign of conceding on sunday parliamentarian show to death to america. leo chants of the arena and revolution take on new force in the face of the sanctions to run them economic war. so where's this headed with me now in the studio is every correspondent and around expert to research good morning tree so we saw some big demonstrations for the regime in tehran this weekend how were these sanctions likely to affect the support publicly for the reigning leadership well they certainly bring out the islamic republic's most vocal supporter the that's the hardliners they've always been critical of the nuclear agreement and didn't supported that much in the first place and yesterday they took to the streets in tehran to mark the anniversary of the season of the u.s.

embassy in tehran back during the islamic revolution in one nine hundred seventy nine and by that of course they showed their support for religious leader ayatollah ali khamenei. but that's the people who have always supported him and do that no matter what but there are also other people of course who do blame the iranian government for not better protecting them against the sanctions because it's the ordinary people that suffer most with food prices up fifty percent according to iran central bank and unemployment high so there's both support and criticism ok is the regime likely to back down to support enough to keep it in place washington says it's all about curbing around ballistic missiles its nuclear program and what it calls around support for terror well so father iranian regime doesn't show any. signs that it's going to back down and president rouhani said we've heard that he's willing to just bypass these sanctions and sell oil no matter what and you have to
10:05 am
know that ballistic missile program is not really in the hands of the iranian government anyway that's in the hands of the revolutionary guard that's a powerful group designed to protect the revolution so a confrontation with their favorite enemy the u.s. is not something they fear and in fact it justifies their existence so they resist and. ok now they also the regime is saying it has plans to get around the sanctions what might that entails well they've got a lot of practice with that because during the past decade sanctions were in place for a number of years for example the two top two thousand and twelve thanks and there were a lot of people who made a business out of getting around those sanctions with bank accounts and third countries or with just relabeling goods for imports so it is not a problem with the sanctions and they got quite rich doing that so they've got a plan for that and you also have to know that the nuclear deal was not
10:06 am

a three hour battle with afghan forces. well here in germany top leaders from chancellor merkel's christian democrats are meeting have their berlin headquarters to discuss the party's future without her. one sticking point is whether the party should return to its conservative roots or remain more liberal centrist as it has under machall the chancellor says she intends to remain in office until all lections and twenty twenty one but her replacement as party leader will be voted on during a wider conference next month. let's turn to our political. assignment young standing by at c.u. headquarters right now good morning simon where is all american c.d.u. heading after it suffered some crushing losses in two recent state elections. well brian it's certainly thinking about how it can renew itself and what it can do to win back the confidence of its core supporters its traditional supporters and as
10:10 am
you say a lot of people have been framing this as a battle between the liberal centrism that's represented by angle americal and i'm also destroyed conservatism that some of the candidates have already thrown their hats into the ring represented of course the party should give it a long and careful thought because these opportunities don't come along very long don't forget angle america has been party leader of the c.d.u. for eighteen years ok so i'm in it with all these crosscurrents in the party right now can make it through to twenty twenty one. you know that really depends on who emerges from this process over the next few weeks to decide the new party leader. in charge of the party and a lot of people are suggesting that it could be a name from the post freed richman's
10:11 am
a man who many thought had disappeared from politics but he was the man that angle a miracle swept just saw a when she became leader of the christian democrat party if he comes back not an easy does he hold that grudge perhaps still as many are saying but he also represents that conservative line and he may seize his charts at some point in the next year or two to push him so forward to essentially forced. to step down from the chancellorship before twenty twenty one that could happen. as the c.d.u. battling it out right now inside the party leaders of the coalition partners the social democrats they're also meeting how serious is the situation for them they have also seen dramatic and historic losses in those state elections could this coalition fall apart. well i mean it could do at the moment the as social democrats have got it difficult they've got
10:12 am
a difficult job because they go to assess why they lost such supports their national support he said now to be around thirteen percent only around the same level as the far right a.f.d.c. and some are suggesting it could drop even more than that but that's the problem for them if they say well in order to win back voters we need to pull out of a coalition government that would probably force a new election and a new election could be they opportunity for them to do even worse at the polls so for the s.p.d. at the moment most people over there are saying well you know we'll stay with angle america's government but we'll try and make sure that people understand more what we bring to that government and simon yeah thanks so much for that this morning from in front of seaview headquarters. it's to the bonus league in our months in law back when into sunday's derby clash against knowing
