1:03 pm
i think the country is heading in a direction that pry it has planned he will take care of the economy peace and especially corruption. of those sounds convinced though the electoral system favors the prime patcher out party o.p.p.r. pay if you had expected it to do so well. i was surprised the p.p. oppy got the most votes. by the looks of the popular votes the p.p.r. pay appears to have swayed voters in the country's poor rural north but rights groups are questioning the credibility of the election. there were reports about for buying there were reports about your equality is in board cowan tabulation there were reports about intimidation of opposition party members. with criticism growing over the way the vote was carried out the political divisions that have afflicted thailand in the last decade could deepen even further so let's
1:04 pm
look a little closer this i'm joined by john jay here somebody would see it and she's a research associate at the german institute for global and area studies and also professor bangkok's at thomson university welcome to d.w. let's start with the delay of the vietnam's front of these results what is behind that well i mean this is just another if you sort of electro wreck a lot of these that they experienced over the past months. the context of the election commission is that they have to make sure that the one top party wins the election and so for the past two or three months def being a lot of creation of. even the playing field if you like and they've been bashing the opposition parties at that at the same time allowing went up to do what it was they can do to take the advantage ok so as far as you are
1:05 pm
clear in your mind that these e like euro irregularities are deliberate yeah yeah ok so. given that i'm so that the the other big surprise of this is election is that the polling project wrath of the pro military party appears to have done so well but given what you've just said nobody should be surprised you know actually as the thai person i expect that and a lot of people expect that you have to understand the meaning of this election for the the elites the who into the election is seen as a way to assess stay in the military rule to and to to my zip form popular right so they have to make sure they win the election and they have done everything to deliver that result so there is so it's not surprising at all. and right now i think was what's expected for the one time for us is how they could.
1:06 pm
organize and form the quality ition and there's a lot of chaos out there at the moment and why do they need a coalition if they have to have their in charge of pretty much all of that believes of state. just just you say as you declare they have rigged elections why not just rig and say we are everything let's get on with it yeah spot on i mean the election has to dick has to be decorated as it is a free and fair election it has to look in some way to look that way but it still has to deliver the result that is authentic just for the junta so they have to mean the. actually doesn't win the parliamentary seats they only got popular votes more than the other party so right now they have over one hundred seats and they have to organize
1:07 pm
a coalition with another party but the most important part is that they have two hundred fifty handpicked senate in that pocket so all together they only need it i live it more on top of the senate seat in order to form the government ok so that as you say pretty much got the job got the job done and now they just need to just do the final bit if you talk about this very calmly and without emotion the idea if they say like being stolen because you are a political scientist do do do a regular times look at this and know which way it's going to go and know that it's all just an illusion this is emotional the whole election is very emotional for thais i mean i have to sort of suppress my anger because this is international. but but is very emotional deciding has. bindy wide it and the elections so was that the vision shows that evolution basically this is the ideological vote you have half of
1:08 pm

1:10 pm
well no not for the democrats president trump is wrong this report is not amount to a so-called total exoneration special counsel muller was clear that his report quote does not exonerate close quote the president. highly anticipated the news caused mixed reactions some american spoke of a turning point in trump's presidency but others remain skeptical i don't trust to be honest. i don't want i don't trust anything. and i don't trust anybody who's investigating and i think now we can you know sleep well and i think. that will of course complain and. president doesn't need to be impeached by any means while republicans consider miller's report

1:22 pm
was what turned out to be an exciting game what did you make of this well whoever said international football had to be boring outside and i just wanted to feel this was a five goal thriller between two of the fiercest rivals on the world stage and germany off to a blistering start could see only roy sonnie a bit of a poster boy for the new era having been left out of the last summer's world cup squad serge gnabry then doubled germany's lead with an absolute peach of a goal but you can't keep the dutch down a full back and it was memphis the paiute equalized shortly before the end of the game however germany rose the occasion and a fresh face nico schultz actually gave them a very late winner which has given you the lives side a big confidence boost following a very difficult spell last year and also three points in the euro for european qualification campaign did make some big changes to the squad and sunday's victory well done comes off the back of last week's disappointing what'll friendly against serbia so what is your impression of this new look team well it really does have
1:23 pm
a feel of a new look team a lot of us all know already that mats hummels drum and thomas miller axed from the squad quite recently but lives ball in a fresh crop of new faces and also implemented a new system a paper to strikers last night which isn't something they they normally do and they were actually fantastic going forward they weren't quite as good in other areas of the pitch midfield needs a little bit of work and defense appears to lack a few leaders but they you know it was a positive result and we're about to hear from leroy sana he spoke positively about the game last night. listen we have a huge new young players really young team now we've got lots more to learn but i think we played a really good game srila. so what do you think as we look across this year do you think by the end of it will have been proven rights to ditch the big names well i think it might be a little bit too early to call that i actually think that he's probably going to be vindicated in his decision to exclude thomas muller from the squad like i say that
1:24 pm
a wealth of attacking options last night really fantastic and forward but like i said they were a little bit shaky at the back and i wouldn't be surprised if love actually has to make a u. turn on his decision and recall it a match for mills or jerome batang to shore up that defense well let's hope east watching mccambridge their thank you. ok new teacher from a remote village has won a million dollar prize in dubai be to be cio works in a government run school that's just one computer and patchy internet access but judges said that despite the obstacles he had made a huge difference in the lives of his students mr de beachy who gives away most of his earnings to the poor receive the annual global teacher prize in a ceremony hosted by actor hugh jackman the winner. of the global teacher prize for two thousand and nineteen it's. bitter to bochy. joy as franciscan monk and science teacher peter to
