with the country engulfed in even more political turmoil over break said british prime minister to resign me is fighting for her job with even some of her cabinet ministers voting over her latest gregg's it withdrawal plan last night to keep her brags that minister andrea led some resigned over the revised deed saying it didn't deliver breaks in britain's leader is standing firm and rejecting calls to stand down. now let's head straight to london to hear from the big it must begin to reason me is still refusing to budge as the country votes in the european election where conservative parties projected to get a meager 7 percent what does this mean for her future. she looks very very bleak for now it looks like she's almost bunkered into downing street maybe push the furniture against the door from the inside we know that many have also had to go many cabinet colleagues and it seems like more
a matter of days than a matter of week when she's going on at least announcing her departure and of course a moment when really important elections are taking place in the u.k. european elections this is not a good look for the conservative party you are set out to take a big hit the both the big parties are set out to take a big hit in these european elections and again if the exit timetable hadn't worked to plan the country would not have even been in the e.u. by now given that how much interest is there in this is your open election. well this will be interesting to see it could go either way it could be that people are just coming in droves and just expressing their opinion it is really all about bragg's it or that they say well they are just too frustrated too to just come we've talked to. people here in this polling station where we are in central london and they've said that for now it's more like it trickles soon not really huge
amount of people storming the polling station to tell the put it to what they think one party that's real pretty sure it's going to benefit from all this deadlock that we've seen over briggs it here in the u.k. is niger for raj it's new parties called the brakes of party it's pretty much a one man band and niger for ours is from a seeing the people that actually everything is much easier than the politicians in westminster make out who can't make up the minds the conditions that they want to live in he is saying well let's just leave and to deal with the european union is not very important and his message is resonating with many voters i think to some of his rallies and see what the mood is like there. peace wherever niger for raj goes he's welcomed back stuff here in wales for example his message to recently has betrayed the country but he's unconditionally accepted all
of brussels demands during the water on the coast and the bracks referendum bird i don't know the deal it's a document drop dubai burst your bubble in the air. with angela about go looking over his shoulder or rather suggest britain doesn't need to due process the main thing is to levy. he does mention that would probably cost jobs all right thank you there i'm afraid that the reason no chance of bricks being delivered with our current 2 party system will occur and god. and we're going to fight for it again but i believe we can do so i think the brits at referendum acted rob about the sort of the genie coming out of the bottle it's not going back. in the city of peterborough over a 1000 people come to check out the new party many of them used to vote for the conservatives but dr been going to china or lawyers you see very nice and i are nothing but crooks of concern to treasonable people people are very angry and feel
very hurt and upset that their vote is being ignored and democracy is being trampled all over the content is that the party claims to have gained more than 100000 new members in just a few weeks. actually made it ain't nobody's going to lean on the rest of the wall of change u.k. can only dream of such numbers greater johnson is in the spotlight and path in southwest england the political newcomer who has one main goal we have to stop a for takeover of this country with all the lack of values and all the lies that stamps campaigner represents he says it's a one man show it's a vehicle to get him into downing street he's taking the got the country up the garden path and over the cliff the new remain party change u.k. has a clear enemy nigel farage is braggs a party but the n.t. brags that vote is splintered and that might be one reason why the pro europeans
have not been able to attract nearly the same crowds as a brags at party who had it been bought for rows of chairs are enough to accommodate a crowd many of those who have come are disappointed by the establishment parties. this is an opportunity to see what a remaining party a new voice a fresh voice has to say to me and i was very impressed actually the passion with which they spoke on the passionate european and i believe changing from hey a one of the only parties to really really support the people's vote and to support . the big parties are being punished in the e.u. elections and the looks like the populists will be the biggest winners. so is it looks like niger for all his easy message is really resonating with voters he makes it easy to leave to leave the european union whereas labor and the conservative the traditional bigger parties recognise the how how difficult the
actual process is and the m.p.'s in parliament are really reluctant to leave without a deal like nigel for raj suggests so big it a big search for the populace expected but what role are british politicians likely to play in the next e.u. parliament. well they have to assume that they are going to stay that we are facing a deadlock at the moment so in paul amend we don't have a clear majority for any course of break that we know that we have set the u.k. is set to leave the european union at the end of october so if they don't find a solution then the u.k. with would leave without any deal but the other way out would be to revoke article 50 so that is something that lawmakers could contemplate and in that instance the piece that elected now would have to stay in for a long time so they would have to be prepared to stay for
a long time at least big mass in london thank you very much. it's not just the u.k. that's voting today in european parliamentary elections polling is also underway in the netherlands the 1st dutch voters cast their votes at midnight in order 400000000 europeans will vote over the next 4 days and the 50 seats in the european parliament and the top job the head of the european commission the 2 favorites for that german conservative monfort veba and the dutch social democrat funds to months . let's head to abse dam. zonda is standing by and that's what's the mood there as i mentioned of the dutch politicians france a team amman's is at the top candidates for you think commission president has that boosted interest in the election. well france in the months is
one of the many faces of the e.u. elections. but he is not expected to have a real inputs year at least not a positive one them his party is expected to come in in 3rd and traditionally here in the netherlands they are very pro european but not so much pro voting in european elections the voter participation since 1909 has never exceeded 40 percent and we're actually standing right in outside of a polling station right now and across the canal talked to a couple people there they feel like this time maybe there is more interest they feel like more people are coming but we'll have to wait for the for the end of the day to see if that's true or not and let's we saw in the u.k. a populist surges expected what is it like in the netherlands. well one political party has taken center stage all of a sudden that's the forum for democracy a far right populist party which was started in 2016 and they are expected to come
out 1st and these e.u. elections and their campaign their anti e.u. there is campaigning on their want they want to hold a referendum on the common currency the euro they even they're campaigning on anti migration anti islam and they even proposed an exit neverland's exit ing the european union but although they are expected to come in 1st you also have to note that the political landscape here in the netherlands is extremely fractured we have the whole political spectrum present from the far left to the far right and we have we are expecting for the 26 seats in the european parliament members from 10 parties from up to 10 parties to to go to brussels write a mac sunday announce today and thank you very much for that update from the. they've been having offered it at some other stories making news around the want camas return to the indonesian capital and to contact to deadly clashes between
police and supporters of the defeated presidential candidate would be until the former general called on his supporters to go home he also told them to he would launch a legal challenge against president joe cool video the reelection. of the author and industry to judyth has died at the age of 95 at the much laughs children's book the tiger who came to tea she was born in berlin and fled nazi germany with her family and experience to do it abbas in her novel when hitler pink rabbit. in ville a man has made a dramatic escape from a 5 by climbing out of a window and clinging on for dear life he was forced to parch next to the flames engulfing his building that's the full firefighters vested him and he walked away without any injuries. indeed but on this in the minds of more these days if he has declared victory in the country's election vote counting is not yet
over but a 1st tally shows that in the nationalist the with a decisive lead over its nearest rivals congress the poll was widely viewed as a referendum on monday's leadership finally the counting is underway at centers like this across the country hundreds of millions of votes are being tallied each one bringing indians closer to finding out who will lead them through the next 5 years it's the culmination of the largest ballot the world has ever seen . central to the process the electronic voting machines some $2300000.00 were in auction across the country but have sped up the counting immensely meaning results emerge within hours but opposition parties say they also pose a risk after reports of some tampering they protested to the electoral commission
demanding verification with papers voting records. the election commission. here on the. international observers say the election has been largely free and fair and the ruling party says the opposition claims are just a distraction they have already sensed it that 200-1000 looks a by election is not going in their favor however much they do night it. the b j p c's only one possible winner in this election incumbent prime minister narendra modi his coalition met on tuesday to discuss its agenda for a 2nd term modi campaigned hard to keep the commanding majority he won 2014
he's promised better income for farmers and more infrastructure spending but the opposition has highlighted slowing economic growth and increasing religious divisions modi's main rival is congress party leader rahul gandhi he wasn't expected to stage a major upset if neither of the main parties claims an outright majority smaller regional groupings could prove kingmaker tipping the balance of power in parliament . but any suggest one is at the beach of the headquarters in delhi she sent us this update from the. i'm not the headquarters of the ruling party or john party the ruling b.g.p. and celebrations have already broken our back right going off in a drum roll. done thing hockey was going on it's still early but i did cite that victory for noreen the more the seems to be in the offing
a 2nd term for the prime minister is what the country seems to be saying now of course in the last couple of days the opposition coalition the opposition parties $22.00 parties came together to challenge the current polling process they have said that there may have been tampering of the electronic voting machines they appealed to the election commission but the election commission which is the body that monitors this entire process has actually said that this is the basis that there is no reason for these allegations and that there would be in the counting will go through as planned not in the evening there will be some some verification of the voting process but otherwise so far it largely looks like everything is going ask time for the election commission has a recounting and everything is going as planned that's one of the be gippi good because clearly appear mandate coming from the beach it be actually the correlation that is headed by the b.b.c.
seem to have gotten more feet so i mean i just as many feet that's the prediction just as many feet of the back and 2014 for the country has rejected the opposition feeling that this government is divisive the bizarre moment may not have done enough and the country seems to have said that they want prime saluting to movie to leave the country for another 5 years they could do a 10 year term and continue the work that the beach if you have done so far today is that the end of the sides. that is the mission just one in delhi until his biggest linda deutsch a bank is facing off with increasingly angry share who has today at its annual general meeting the bank has been mired in various legal and corporate issues for years. little progress supervisory board chairman. from a shareholder said door to bank restructure quickly and move radically after becoming dividends the board is under pressure to answer questions of management huge fines for regulators and downgrades. we build
a us competitive and this. lift to a very core. business cards fall in love as hunter is at the shareholders meeting in frankfurt and joins me from there now what can you tell us about the mood. well i guess you're correctly said the shareholders here in frankfurt they are frustrated they are angry we've spoke to a couple of them and what we heard was just really they're venting all their anger is mostly directed at the chair of the supervisory committee that you just mentioned under his reign in the last 7 years shares have been down over 70 percent and as a matter of fact just now during the last hour when paul spoke the shares dropped another 2 percent to a new all time low and one shareholder in the meeting just pointed out shares of a bank right now actually worth less than a pack of cigarettes and unfortunately that is true so that is of course
a very good reason for people to be angry and to demand change so last given all of that how do rigged dortch is chances of dragging it says out of this mess at various levels. well it is difficult everybody knows that and shareholders of growing from more and more frustrated because all the promises that management made to drag the bank get the bank out of this they have been made before some people just told me we have literally heard the same speeches and the same promises for the last couple of years and this is why i can stand saving the relatively new c.e.o. is also under attack here right now he just gave a speech and then some shareholders spoke out against him and i want to quote one person he said he quoted actually kristen saving to war last year when he became c.e.o. he said after all these years of scandal sort of bunk he wants to promise shareholders that time is going to get
a lot more boring so everybody was actually looking forward to that but then the shareholders said what happened the bank failed another stress test the 3rd one in the united states there was a major raid on top of banks offices connected to money laundering in the russian laundromat there was also all these stories about financial ties to a president trump in the u.s. that are currently not playing out that well for deutsche bank that's childer and there are a lot of applause that if these are boring times that i don't want to be around when times get interesting. hunted these financial correspondent thank you very much for that update from frankfurt. and bernard celebrations have kicked off to mark the 70th anniversary of germany's post for constitution known as the basic law the constitution came into effect on this day in may $949.00 after being drawn up under the supervision of the victorious allies now it's being celebrated as the foundation of german democracy one civil rights organization even served up in its
own honor in front of the brandenburg gate. now more events including a celebration with the german president are planned throughout the day now all this ringback week really are looking at how the constitution is translated into reality every day by ordinary people today we focus on article 5 which guarantees freedom of expression the met van originally from iraq to find out how he uses provocatively his right to say what he wants in public. i left my country because of freedom of expression so it was always and still is very important to me to be able to express my opinion. ahmed had to flee his home in iraq because he wouldn't shut up in germany is protected by the constitution.
the arab teacher is careful infidel the 20 year old is an atheist and he talks openly about his opinions on faith and other matters. sometimes he wants to provoke here at a palestinian march in germany he's carrying a poster of 2 kissing men. if there's pushing and shoving the police officer steps in to prevent violence i mean there is no no no. he's not welcome. for many muslims it's a to boot and sometimes you have to be provocative and cross boundaries in order to change something in society and essentially. and i'm from a religious family there were certain rules about what i could and couldn't do it
was somehow clear to everyone that you couldn't be different. and you couldn't think differently when. at one point i thought it had to be possible to say that you were no longer a believer without being punished. and then i decided to do it for myself. so talking not my fault it was 5 days after my 15th birthday when my father suddenly went to the police so he came back with 3 police officers they beat me in front of my parents and. then they looked me in the room for i was so mad that they tortured me with cables and electric shocks and that. mr. lawson that was the day i left iraq and we took this picture at night with
a photographer. but 1st i didn't want to tell my story in germany. to avoid more conflicts and so on. but at the same time i knew that if you express your opinion in europe the states will protect you. ahmed said muslims in germany abuse and threaten him when he openly expresses his opinions but here unlike in iraq he's protected by the police. have to meet. a lot to be here and i won't let anyone here tell me how to live and what i'm allowed to do. the theme and especially what i'm allowed to say. i am free. and.
plans to expand the next left up to $48.00 teams have been abandoned by fee for the tournament in qatar will instead go ahead with the normal $32.00 teams as 50 planned on the change it would have required to share hosting duties in 2022 with other countries in the region the political tensions make that impossible adding 16 more teams to qatar's world cup in 2022 was a bit too optimistic for president giani if in chinos idea of the expansion will have to wait until 2026 as scheduled fee for what it neighboring countries like the u. $80.00 to help host the tournament but an economic blockade in the region against qatar showed no signs of being lifted feet were there for release this statement. following a thorough and comprehensive consultation process with the involvement of all the relevant stakeholders it was concluded that under the current circumstances such a proposal could not be made now qatar was open to being the lone host for the
potential $48.00 team contest but couldn't find a viable operating model to sustain the idea building it's world cup if a structure almost from scratch has been and continues to be a tall order in itself however construction for 32 teams seems to be on schedule. we have now 6 most areas to go by the end of this year 1st quarter of next year we'll be launching 2 stadiums as well by 2021 all our stadiums will be ready and there was already controversy surrounding the 2022 qatar world cup including allegations of human rights abuses towards migrant workers the heat in changing the date to a late november kickoff but local football fans are excited qatar won the 2019 asian cup and gets to host a world cup on its own with any risks now reduced. his 8th capping opt outs tony pulis of open elections to the european parliament that includes the u.k.
