have also been voting in european elections originally the u.k. were supposed to have left the e.u. by this stage but lawmakers there have so far failed to reach a consensus on the withdrawal agreement but as we report the topic as we report the topic of bragg's that has dominated the campaign. it's an election that the majority of britons didn't want to have anything to do with but it's also an opportunity for many to have their say on briggs it. will be. obviously this is a vote that should never have happened. over the last 3 years and this is my it's going to water it down and water down the aisle for another referendum. that will be twisted. and the result we're trying. very angry and brags that party leader nigel farage is poised to capitalize on this sentiment
8:07 am
he hopes such a vote of frustration will translate into votes for his party and he's feeling pretty confident. what if you want bricks that you go to vote for except we did it once they ignored us so we're going to tell them again this time they will realize that it isn't just the votes we get today it's what we want get of the general election the cost them all the jokes so they get a list of what people say they have employed. but not only those politicians in favor of a hard break that are expecting to win more votes both the greens and the liberal democrats are also expected to gain support liberal democrat leader vince cable said a vote for his party was a vote to stop briggs it voters seem ready to punish the 2 major labor and tory parties for the current breaks at crisis. this time they're a bit unsure on the position in the hedging their bets a bit such as the green party for the 1st time for
8:08 am
a few years because i voted for breaks it i want i want to carry through i think parliament at the moment have made a bit of a hash of things. although their intentions are good. but i want some clarity devoted to labor i thought that was the best party to remain in the european union even though the policies of labor are very clear yes i thought it was best to avoid having a private party and i wanted to be sure that i sent a message to westminster that we should stay in the european union that it's just nationalism and folly to the. as for prime minister to resign may this could be her last appearance as the country's political leader. and let's bring in the band to the god who is monitoring the dutch side of the elections for us in amsterdam then to talk us through what the exit polls are saying so far there are any big surprises there. yes of the they have very big surprise it's the

social democrats call the results a miracle because they double the share of the vote from 9 percent in the last elections to 18 percent in this election and funds to moments the leading candidate the leading social democrat was a cause overjoyed although he was not he was complaining in spain and on the other hand the right wing populist parties didn't gave as much votes as predicted by the post does the democracy forum only got 3 seeds predicted 5 or even 6 and overall the liberal party's one little bit and right wing pop is lost a little bit and that is against the trend in europe as we saw before the elections started a lot of these right wing parties are predicted to be making gains is this now set a trend or will it have any influence over voters and other countries but it's
8:10 am
still acts of pose we don't know yet the results would only be published on sunday after all $28.00 members states would have voted it's too early to call it the trend the overall polls say that the right thing puppet is gain seats in the european parliament around 20 or 23 percent and the mainstream parties will lose and today the czech republic and island are going to the polls but they these are totally different stories in every of the $28.00 member states a different story and a different compay in it is going on so it's very hard to predict what in the end will be the outcome as you mentioned czech republic and ireland are voting today for us other nations over the course of the weekend what are we looking for and what can we expect. well the last polls will close and into the front on sunday night at 10 pm and then all the results will be tallied and the posts
8:11 am
say the right thing poppy is will win it's a big fight between the liberal and illiberal proceeds about the right wing has been not to take over they've been to not be strong enough to really influence the european parliament but the social democrats and the conservatives altogether lose a bit the much harder to form majorities in the future parliament than to the account for us in amsterdam thank you so much and now to our series marking the 70th anniversary of the german a constitution this week also known as the basic law it came into effect in may 1949 after being drawn up under the supervision of the allied powers in stride of fundamental values like human rights freedom and equality for all its aim was to ensure that after years of nazi dictatorship and the destruction of the 2nd world war the new germany was built on solid democratic foundations 40 years later when
8:12 am
west and east were brought back together the constitution was adopted in the or unified germany. over the past few days we've been looking at how ordinary people make use of the basic law today we focus on the debate over homeschooling which is illegal here in germany attending school is compulsory and homeschoolers can face fines and even jail time but some parents are fighting that rule saying the constitution protects their children's right to personal freedom. i wish everyone could learn how they like and school wasn't compulsory. doesn't go to school german law says she has to but she signs to constitution. i sure can with it as he steps and people can develop individually at school
8:13 am
everyone has to do the same thing and they have to feel the same everyone goes at the same speed. i felt limited and that i wasn't allowed to decide for myself what i wanted to learn depending on how i was feeling. like the 14 year old has been schooling herself for 2 years with books apps and internet groups she's not alone around 2000 german children refused to go to school they call themselves free learners but the state says their truants molly helen is convinced she'll graduate high school if she doesn't actually have to go to high school. you know what you get i'm more motivated to learn at school it was always like now it's german i mean look at this again if you really put your mind to it and see the laptop it's amazing to say it can actually be fun and i had never thought about school. that bottle.
8:14 am
that her home in a small village on the north german coast molly had been beside herself what she wants to learn and when that includes playing music with the rest of the family. now the only ones mother has already paid fines for not making her go to school authorities have even threatened her with jail but she's not a lawyer and is determined to support her daughter's decision. avoided is going to rush to harm we have these basic rights in the freedom to develop our personality but then come the school laws they restrict those basic rights even if i think this is the best for her for her personal development i'm not allowed to decide as a mother i could go to prison that was upsetting i always saw myself as a normal respectable citizen child protection services and the threat of jail were
8:15 am
not normally part of my life. the family is refusing to bow to the pressure and say they'll move if they have to to a country where free learning is allowed. i think every person should have their own freedom and should be able to decide for themselves. when you have that freedom you ask yourself oh what am i going to do now and then all sorts of parts and. for more on this let's bring in undress hunka a family affairs lawyer here in berlin and they asked in that report we saw maria helen and her mother invoking the german constitution do they actually have a legal basis to do so they certainly do there are 2 fundamental rights in the constitution article 4 and article 6 article 4 is the riot of faith and conscious in article 6 is. right about custom parental rights. and of course article 4
8:16 am
guarantees but to live according to your own beliefs and to raise your children according to your beliefs so they do have a standing in the basic law according to those 2 fundamental rights on the one on the one side is the constitution also says care and upbringing of children is a natural right of the parents why shouldn't parents be able to take their kids out of school if they think that that's better for them. if you ask with regard to the constitution because 2 fundamental rights collide we have on the on the one hand we have article 4 and i'll take a 6 and on the other hand we have article 7 that says that the entire school system is under the supervision of the state and those fundamental rights collide with each other and the state has to create a reasonable balance but between those 2 rights and. so the state
8:17 am
law which is every state has its own school law says that you have to send your children to school they must attend school because the state wants to guarantee that they become self responsible citizens and they want to integrate all kinds of people into the society into so-called to a mystic society the parents can be through. and with losing custody of their children possible jail time fines why is the german law so severe in this regard. imprisonment and losing custody are the most extreme measures the state can take though there's as a kid a look of actions the states can take and of course the state will address the parents 1st and try to find a solution with them before threatening them with losing custody or imprisonment normally the state will find the parents for not and rolling the children to school the state of sorts it's so was strict on this matter because it believes that it wants to prevent societies from. developing and. once
8:18 am
to prevent children from. not being a part of the society not to be. used to interact with other people of a different heritage of a different faith that's why the status was so strict on this matter and finally on a personal level since it's the the 70th anniversary of the german constitution how do you feel about this this anniversary i'm very glad that we have this constitution i was born and raised in the g.g. form of yard so i'm. you know i know that a lot of the freedoms that we have are not for granted and appreciate the the effort of forefathers put into that constitution and developed it has family affairs lawyer here in berlin thank you so much for joining us thank you and we're going to go back to our top story now indian prime minister narendra modi is preparing to hold talks on forming
8:19 am
a new cabinet following his landslide win in the country's elections and we're going to be joined now by 2 w.'s nimish address while in delhi as a new mr this was a resoundingly win for the governing b j p it seems polls were expecting him to fall short of an overall majority was this election about the issues or was it about narendra modi. well definitely resoundingly and one that was actually bigger than the one they had and 2014 which was historic in itself so clearly the mandate has completely supported now dreams are more of the and then you also about what's what was this election about marriage will be i think it's pretty safe to say yes over the course of the selection of was seen as a referendum on the prime minister and the last 5 years off is daniel and when you actually look at the campaigning that the b.g.p. has done it has centered around the prime minister and around writing up the national security sentiment there was a standoff between india and pakistan where you had the skill and the decisive
8:20 am
action by the prime minister who were seen as a decisive action actually shored up his support significantly the opposition raised issues of the highest unemployment in 45 euros the final crisis a possible corruption within governance but none of these issues seem to have stopped or damage the prime minister at all is coming back with an even larger mandate and on the flip side it was also a stunning defeat for the opposition congress party rahul gandhi lost to the longtime family seat it was their product is this the beginning of the end for the gandhi dynasty. well that question has been raised before but it has never been as development as it is right now and the indian national congress was only able to seize its seat count 20 to 2014 they went out they went all out on the campaign reeling the issues that i just mentioned they even put out a strong manifesto but none of these messages seem to have appealed to the water and that question has been that is repeatedly by. via by analysts as well as
8:21 am
people in the media that is it time for the president of the international congress charlie gandhi to reconsider to perhaps even step down and for the congress itself to think about its trial of ns given that even with 5 years even with the potential to file a government the sentiment they have pretty much entirely feel it's also worth noting that regional parties that was also expected to play an important role have also not done well in this election they've actually done worse than they did back in 24000 so a complete drought of the opposition by the ruling the g.o.p. so modi had as we said a decisive victory but he's got a lot of challenges facing him for his next term what do you think is going to be the top of his agenda. well i'm afraid there are actually no challenges to the prime minister noda and more of the government i didn't mention far more distress i did mention high unemployment the economy has
8:22 am
been floundering in different ways but none of this seems to matter because the mandate that he has been awarded seems to say that the last 5 years have actually been great let's get more of that so why of course these are issues of government has to address he has talked about needing an inclusive government needing a government that does the drys is above cost politics and religion politics it will have to wait and watch what exactly the government chooses to focus on will they address the issues that have been raised when they are being criticized over they just take this mandate to plow want to head with just about a free hand and whatever they wish to do they have almost a 2 thirds majority in parliament and cooling their coalition so fossil very strong hand and we just have to wait and watch exactly how they selected how they choose to exercise this feat this truss this mandate that they have been awarded. correspondent nimish and just well in delhi for us thank you so much.
