thousands of kurdish prisoners in turkey have ended a must hunger strike they were protesting prison conditions for the kurdish leader abdul. supporters celebrated the end of the strike the government lifted a ban on lawyers visiting a vigil and who is serving a life sentence. well the votes are in and the ballots are being counted more than 400000000 people in 28 countries were eligible to vote in the biggest democratic exercise in the western world from france to poland and right across the continent from britain to italy the forces of populism and euro skepticism are presenting the e.u. with fresh challenges here watching special coverage of the european elections. in berlin and this is the day.
6:47 am
we should use in the 1st piece of news from today is that european democracy is a lot of. almost speechless we had high hopes to mystic this is fantastic for me these are smaller cuteness this election result is not the result that we can see if the people expect of ourselves give a shit if we're going to brussels to repair the e.u. . cultic nor people's desire for more protection for freedom and sovereignty when this election was a climate protection election this election was an election for democracy. voters across europe have made their voices heard with the big turnout traditional center parties in germany france and elsewhere have been watching their support
6:48 am
erode while the environmentalist greens have been surging taking 2nd place in germany meanwhile right wing populist parties are projected to have made strong gains winning in france italy poland and hungary. these boxes hold the voice of europe. the future of more than 500000000 people marked on pieces of paper. once counting had begun it soon became clear the voters had spoken out against the solid center of european politics. the sheer instant northeast the best news today is that european democracy is alive at the makati leaped more than one today we saw a clear increase in photo turnout mean. that democracy gave german mainstream parties their worst ever results.
6:49 am
i that democracy delighted much of the european far right. in france marine le pen again beat the french president's party. hungary's viktor orban spelled it out the migration issue by itself and the reaction of the people only real reorganize the 4 to the spectrum with the traditional party families we're not playing the same role in the future as they have done in recent years i also and traditional jubilant greens resurgence in germany. become a big hitter in the european parliament. and our family as. we achieved this because 90 many people took to the streets for climate protection because many many young people were ready to fight for climate protection in schools universities in sports halls. these
6:50 am
are here these results are the votes of those people who are active on the net and those who are active in companies and small communities also in chambers of trade who said go and vote this is our election that is change europe together and not. yellow vests protestors in brussels on sunday they say the e.u. is undemocratic. everyone wants to change here at. the fight over which way will be played out in parliament and on the streets. let's go right to proselyte our bureau chief max hoffman is standing by for us there he's been covering the vote for us max you could say it's been a pretty underwhelming result for the established parties in this fall how is that going down in brussels. for the established parties and surprisingly that didn't go down too well for others like the greens for example
6:51 am
and also certain right wing populist parties like that they got from italy or that us on the law not from france they were rather enthusiastic but even those that lost seats stress the fact they thought it was positive that voter turnout had increased by about 7 percent compared to the last european election so winners and losers as with every election this is definitely a fragmented parliament max you could say so who is going to be the kingmakers in brussels after this vote you know where the chips going to fall in the parliament. a looks like at the moment that you would need at least 3 groups to build a majority and then only if the social democrats and the conservative european people's party continued to work together so it would be thinkable for example that the social democrats and the e.p. so the conservatives would work together with the liberals which is
6:52 am
a minor is called the french president has its fingers in that and that would probably be enough but also you could think about a coalition with the greens or maybe even 4 factions so to cut it short the kingmakers here would be either the liberals or the greens and that puts and that's why i mentioned that earlier in my room i call the french president in a pretty solid position of power when it comes to choosing the commission president back speaking of the greens there one of the big stories. to emerge from the selection they surged to here in germany they've got a lot of support especially among young voters how is that going to change the e.u. . we talked to a lot of people about about that and it's clear that climate change has emerged as one of the most important topics of these european elections some have said here at this very spot today that maybe it became even the most important topic that of course was a good good news for the greens my colleague catherine martin's talked to one of
6:53 am
the leading figures of the german greens to celebrate this massive victory today. critical for this is what he had to say about it. i'm not predicting for the greens performing quite well tonight how can you explain that. well taking into account that the different parties from different corners or europe that are really extremely successful in this european election. i think they're used to. points of commonality that. probably do a lot to explain the success and one is obviously the issue of climate change which. and i did not expect that in the beginning but it has become the main topic of this campaign over the last couple of weeks and obviously we're not an 11th hour group that of adjoins this battle because.
6:54 am
stick reasons we have been fighting this fight for years so people have trust in our ability not just to proclaim goals but to deliver. success to to walk the walk so to say. let's say you have good results how can you translate this good results into power here in the house. first the parliament has been strengthened through a higher rate of participation that i think we will use to impress on the council all willingness to shape. the policies for the next 5 years and in order to do that for democratic groups should come together and negotiate a game plan negotiate the major initiatives to be taken to. implement the mandate for change that we've got now the game is open which. leading
6:55 am
candidate are you supporting but the greens not at this moment this is one bridge too far 1st talk substance then talk personalities the greens with this kind of results are the greens aiming for a top job in the institution 1st talk substance then talk jobs what is the substance of the substances. the 3 dimensions of climate change and vomits biodiversity number one number two's social inclusiveness and social justice and number 3 more democracy in europe thank you very much. all right max so we heard there from the grilling that isn't there is that we've heard a lot from the greens. go out next door had so we. well max are just hearing the
6:56 am
strategy from the greens there so you know interesting points made there but what about the populists because this is the big question we were all asking ahead of this vote how well are they going to do and we don't see in france marion le pen perform well my test of union italy and they said they want to form a big powerful populist group in the european parliament will we see that actually turned out. well the voting total if you look at the vote total for the right wing populist it's about there where many expected it to be maybe a little lower so you can't say it's a victory all across the board they're probably not going to be able to fathom the necessary groups from the different countries to have the strongest group in the european parliament nevertheless you know they're clearly one of the winners of the evening with 2 real highlight wins for them and you mention them in france for example but in the pens. managed to beat out in monterrey mark hall's liberal party and in italy. they got a party.
