evening to wrap up the cannes film festival of the big names go home empty handed newcomers make history a korean film takes a palme d'or as well as senegalese debutant is awarded 2nd prize becoming the 1st black woman to win big at cannes. i'm going to get champions bar in munich also inter-mountain ball and the german cup beating lights a 3 nil and a final which brought them and also the story to a pickle. player . welcome to the program. millions of voters across europe are going to the polls to elect representatives to the european parliament it's the final day of voting with $21.00 countries taking part today including some of the biggest germany france italy spain and poland
results are expected this even a citizens across the block have been voting since thursday with more than 400000000 people eligible to cast their ballots. the european parliament that emerges from this vote will go on to elect the next president of the european commission that person will succeed claude juncker whose 5 year term is coming to an end it's europe's top job so the stakes are high let's take a look at the candidates. i will do everything to defend this year i think we've had screenings take the battle hard to propose. we have work to do my gratian is an opportunity we introduce minimum wage to every member state they are all running for the e.u. commission president moderator best target for the liberal scott for the greens monthly to be about for the conservatives funds to moments for the social democrats younes of a deal is conservative reverend the candidate and. is for the party they are the
6 leading candidates but hang on a minute who are they and does anyone know anything about them do you know any of them. and do you know him. any idea. honestly no i've ever seen her. i haven't seen. dutchman france to my man speak some language as he once more social justice german monthly by is calling for secure europe help for example by european f.b.i. denmark's moderate best star is standing for self-confident and women's rights left wing equal who from budget is a trade unionist and this pointing for social rights the germans got hellos promoting a european climate friendly future the czech republic xians idealism favor of the e.u. but once more sovereignty for individual nation states they are all committed to
the european union but what are the biggest challenges what solutions do they need to offer for the future the fragmentation between member states a lot of distrust which we have which has increased over the past years between member states also between national capital and brussels liberal moderate of a stogie and social democratic plans to moments are the only candidates who have already had some experience as a minister is that an advantage for. it isn't as if you have had experiences at national level because in many cases the national political parties are not really supportive of their european and they're not pushing them they're rather pushing their own national candidate so you don't see visually that they exist but one man has definitely been in the spotlight on the european stage michel barnier who could be the joker in the pack he's not officially a candidate but he might just end up getting the job as the well regarded
negotiator he enjoys the respect and trust of many hats of state and government and in the end that could be way more important than a load off t.v. debate. for more on this i'm joined now by our correspondent in brussels garrick thanks for more candidates for use top job but there could still be a surprise how so exactly the european parliament of course hopes that one of the lead candidates one of their candidates who has been campaigning for the big political group in the european parliament will grab that top position in the european commission but it could also as we've seen in the report be someone who has been complaining ross or rather decently in behind the scenes if you want to put it like that that is the chief negotiator michele dunne you because at the end of the day it is up to the leaders the heads of state in government who are in the driving seat of the european union they are the ones who can pick a candidate
a candidate that is proposed by the european council president and that comes of then has to be approved by the european parliament so it's a tricky process and that is why it's not yet clear who will grab that job the e.u. and e.u. elections are incredibly complex by design and voters have switched off in great numbers and the past elections how big is interest in the election this time around . well the european parliament this time around seeing that the participation rates have been dropping over the years and decades has made a huge effort this time send out volunteers made campaign videos invested a lot of money so that people do understand what this election is about why it is important that people go and vote directly this is the european parliament is the only part of the european union where you have a direct chance to pick your candidate what democracy is if you want to put it that way the most of it and so of course the hope is that will be marginalized.
the nationalists and euro skeptic movement is expected to draw a lot of support is it really going to reflect as such in the balance. look that's of course the big question and when we don't know yet as also elections can be full of surprises we've seen in the netherlands that all of a sudden the social democrats came up 1st of course if you look at the opinion polls in france for instance the phone arsenal of bend the far right is. is the narrow lead had of the french president which would be quite a success if they would come out strongest party that in italy the elite of. the french the italian foreign minister is the quickest growing party in europe so i'm doubtlessly the nationalists will make bigger gains in this election the big
question then after the election and that is something we will have to look at on monday is how will they be able to form groups at the moment they are split amongst a number of groups in the european parliament if they will manage to form one big group they could have of course a much stronger impact in politics in your reason why no logical spectrum represented on the ballot papers today and in the past couple of days when issues have the parties focus on during their campaigns. well for the far right of course migration was still a topic although i've talked to a number of voters tomorrow when this morning in belgium when i cast my ballot and and migration wasn't one of the big topics people have realized that numbers have dropped dramatically but a lot of young people in particular said they have turned up because the environment is important to them and for instance yesterday there was a big march on the environment where create a tumor of the swedish student campaigner for the environment against environmental
damage has asked people to go out and vote in this european election so i think we could see in this european election the shift a big gain for green parties that at least is what was my impression was this morning and that's also the picture i get from a number of other states where opinion polls have said that the green parties could be a surprise winner of this election they tell you get months and wrestle thank you very much and some of the other stories making news around where else. he was president met with the japanese prime minister shinzo obvious for a round of goals to begin a 4 day visit to japan on monday trumbull be the 1st world leader. and the throne earlier this month. one new guinea's prime minister peter o'neill has stepped down following pressure over a multibillion dollar gas export deal critics say fail to protect the interests of
