10:01 am
has been prevented from taking office and she's not the only opposition politician in adams turkey to be checked out so how up. on the deadly price of the world's highest peak mount everest has claimed $11.00 lives so far this year experts claim is some of the crowds and the full issuing a record number climbing plants. plus the world of formula one says its final farewell to a motor sports legend taking will be buried today in his hometown of vienna austria following his death last week the peak age of 70. i'm not so much for joining us the german. the french president emanuel might
10:02 am
call have clashed over who should take europe's top job merkel has made it clear she favors a german candidate for the post of european commission president has called for the selection system to be changed it comes as government heads meet in brussels to discuss the blocs leadership for the next 5 years let's have a listen to what the 2 heads of state had to say after last night's talks. because the german government is committed to the principle of the need to come to that however the parties represented in the coalition have different views as to which candidate is best suited to this if everyone just peace with their preferred means really stuck because most of the groups are the majority of them and even if 2 of them work together they still have a majority we need 3 joins in 4 groups to do this. so some obvious differences of opinion and some more on that i'm joined by our correspondent in brussels teri
10:03 am
schultz hi terry now the european council is split into those those defending the lead candidate system and there are those who are against it can you tell us a bit more about these 2 options sure of the european parliament elections and their fragmented results through the system into disarray it used to be that the lead candidate for the largest political group the european people's party was basically a shoo in now that that party and the number 2 political group the socialists and democrats lost so many seats they're no longer guaranteed that their candidate will get in and that's bad news for the german candidate munford bever and you know it's been kind of funny that this system is called the spits and cut it out in german even in english but the results of the european parliament election have meant that it is no longer the system that everybody accepts so is it now up to the european council president donald tusk to find some kind of compromise that suits both sides . yes that's to 6 job on every issue and this is bound to be
10:04 am
a big one for him because you not only have countries and political groups disagreeing over the system itself but then you go below that and they don't agree on candidates munford bever is by no means a unified choice you still have friends timmermans for the 2nd group who has a lot of popularity and you have mcgrath a vested the 3rd largest political group the liberals who also has a lot of support so just has a big job ahead of him and they wanted to have it wrapped up by the next e.u. summit at the end of june it doesn't look like that's going to be possible now both total to the sky and president mccall both said they wanted agenda balanced nomen need less to be used top jobs are we going to be seeing more women taking on key roles that you know we hear this every time the top jobs turnover. of euchre also said he wanted more women and he ended up with a commission that has only one 3rd of female commissioners so they all say they're going to do this and we'll see if that happens
10:05 am
a lot of it has to do with what nominees the member states put forward to brussels you can't choose from a female candidate if you haven't been given them but margaret's investor has said that every country needs to propose to female commissioner candidates that would make a big difference and of course she has also been gaining a lot of popularity as a strong female candidate for president a man you mcclung says he wants investigated to be the commission president that would make a big difference the last time we didn't have a female candidate running for president of the european commission so it remains to be seen whether they actually succeed in this but at least there's a lot of talk about it with to ask himself saying this is a priority teri schultz in brussels thanks so much. now turkey's largest city istanbul is preparing for a rerun of its may oral election in just a few weeks time the country's electoral commission a null the result of an early a vote following a complaint from president wretch up tight at the ones a posse his party lost the election to cram him olu who represented an alliance of

10:07 am
never thought that i would not receive my mandate i wasn't expecting this because the election commission had approved me as a candidate. 2 months after the vote people here are still appalled by the election board's decision to close. the lane there by i think this is very unfair. decision is wrong whoever wins the election should take office. there in minutes by not giving her the mandate they're stealing the will of the people most of them in. the election commission says good catch most should not be mayor because she was dismissed. from her job by an emergency decree following the attempted coup in 2016 despite international criticism the turkish government had tens of thousands of state employees detained sacked was suspended. was a teacher at the time was also on the list she still doesn't know why but i mean if
10:08 am
that comes in bottles the same election authority that allowed us to run as candidates then makes this unlawful decision it's supposed to be an absolutely independent institution but it's not it's under the control of the a.k.p. . instead of catch must the runner up candidate in her district was declared made a member of president adeline's a k party. a few weeks ago catchments protested against a ruling in front of the town hall where she feels she should now be working just a few minutes for the police to clear the demonstrators thanks. i am. tanisha is the only member of the ruling a.k.p. in van who is willing to talk to us he blames goujon kuch mrs party for the outcome . of

a rival party deliberately nominated candidates who were sacked by emergency decrees are honorable president had warned them don't nominate people with links to terror groups or crime or those who were sacked if you do it this is what you care to will . in 5 districts in southeastern turkey a key people the titians were given the office despite pro kurdish h.t.t.p. candidates actually winning the elections the opposition insists it's a deliberate attempt to keep them out of power. to john catchments is now helping out in her husband's stationery store and she has filed. i don't want to give up i want to be there for the people of adamant my hope for the unlawful an end to democratic practices in turkey will soon end. at present from
10:10 am
a friend in nameplate for what should have been her new office now it's here in the shop one of the few reminders that goujon catchments was recently and they had mayor. time to have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world afghan politicians and representatives from the taliban have met in moscow part of a conference marking 100 years of diplomatic ties between russia and afghanistan opening the missing russian foreign minister sergei lavrov called for the complete withdrawal of international forces from afghanistan. in australia newly reelected prime minister scott morrison has been sworn into office a week after his conservative coalition won a surprise victory his cabinet includes ken wyatt's the 1st aboriginal person to become minister for indigenous affairs. in argentina activists are renewing efforts to legalize abortion will make us have said they would introduce
10:11 am
a bill to legalize the term a nation of pregnancies up to 14 weeks a similar motion passed the lower house of congress last year but was defeated in the senate due to opposition from religious springs. now the nigerian president mohammed who bihari is set to be inaugurated for the 2nd time today but not all nigerians are happy about his reelection about hauffe of registered voters under the age of 35 and many young people is skeptical that their 76 year old president is the right man to revamp the economy. is in the capital abuja she spoke to young voters who see no reason to celebrate today's inauguration. of these young men who want this cocktail bar and if the president were to stop by they would make a very special drink for him. give him a strong drink or so maybe you could resets. where you get
10:12 am
a strong drink you puts you to sleep when you wake up maybe you is going to think about all these youths gave all their strong drink let's see what we could do for them. they feel is doing way too little to empower the youth all of them have studied abroad back here they are often called for into the nigeria's makeshift infrastructure such as its regular power to choose they must spend 2 $102.00 was dollars every month just to keep their drinks cool their youths are your where vibrant we want to do something so if the government can give us. i think who created anything give you power in terms of your power in terms of influence power in terms of electricity when we get electricity in france with the full course i'm going to use and infrastructure and how do you get business. has promised all of that but it's hard to find someone who believes in his policies every area
10:13 am
that we have new does of summer but i'm not seeing anything give me the people they need leaving so the issue i feel that we should give we would after a while i finally find a horse supporter who is eager to join the festivities around his president we need patience room was no buttes and they'd be the saints but i don't see it but. for now down person them with a war president the support of a majority of the electorate the youth about half of the registered voters are under $35.00 but only every 3rd of the electorate went out to vote at all a historic low which does not bode well for president biharis 2nd term. i'm joined now by g.w. sonny for his reporting from eagle square in a booth where president biharis inauguration will be taking place in
10:14 am
a short while funny we just heard there in your report about various apathy the many young nigerians who don't support hari what's turnout looking like today. well right now actually the crowd is bigger than just an hour ago everybody is here except the president of the vice president they are about to arrive in a short while and the actually swearing in is going to take place in one hour from now nobody comes to the turnout in terms of you know just a normal citizen i expect this to be a very small gathering a very small party also here in the city of which has to do with the fact that the country remains very much split over the question who should lead this country in the ditch direction which has to do with has to do with the it's connected to the voter turnout number while it was historically no the lowest in 20 years since the end of may to rule but it also has to do with the fact that a lot of people did not want a president who hari to have
10:15 am
a 2nd chance 41 percent actually voted for the main contenders party i think while because p.d.p. party yes it is reservation and skepticism that is mixing among this entire this entire integration day why of course you have to point out also people are celebrating because they say president who are is the right man to tackle all those challenges that this country is facing so some of these challenges that a president who hari as he enters his 2nd term what would you say he needs to so close on what are his priorities. while he's basically inheriting his own promises he made 4 years ago that he repeated this time around isabel he said that his priority is to revamp the call on the way to make sure that the security and stability in this country to make sure that nigeria is not making headlines anymore as being the capital of the world when it comes to pull over to you but when you ask young people what they want they're going to tell you they
10:16 am
need very basic things for example as pointed out in that report they need electricity they need education you want to make sure that there actually are really diffused sure that the promise to be of this country so there are so many issues that are surrounding this next 4 years of president who are the some people may actually ask others for years in office and those are his supporters who say give president who are another chance because it is simply so many tasks laying. after hours that he has made 4 years ago or during his 1st time during the past 4 years or simply not enough and there needs to be real change in nigeria which is not president laurie. and if a child in nigeria's capital a big thanks so much. you're watching the news still to come. for me no one legend mickey lauder is laid to rest in vienna coming up we'll take a look at the legacy of one of the most illustrious figures in the world of the
10:17 am
nation's wars. but 1st it's the deadliest climbing season in years of the world's highest peak at least 11 people have died trying to get to the top of mount everest over the past few weeks alone the deaths are being blamed on bottlenecks caused by overcrowding on the mountain slopes and the police authorities have handed out almost 400 climbing permits for this season that's more than ever before. they came for an adventure in the remotest place on oust the qs carnage and tragedy. the man who filmed this long breathless crawl to the top of everest turned back fearing for his life it has become a death race there because there was massive traffic jam and people are pushing themselves or not even care people of doing it they do it they try to summit and they instead of summiting they kill themselves and it's turned into
10:18 am
a bad thing and i think people should really look into it. the reason for the sneaking lines of mine to near the top of the world a record number of parent and a narrow window of good weather the delays made the already extreme conditions worse according to this climber who has the scars to prove it. if you look at it in experience climates don't even know how to time the oxygen masks around their face. these inexperienced climbers can create problems for the rest of the climbers. as far as death is concerned it's the climbers themselves who take the risk robin fisher is one of the 11 people to have died this season he shot this video describing the conditions as he set out for the summit.
10:19 am
but it is the death zone near the hillary step where the congestion is most dangerous to resume officials have promised to implement safety barriers but no limit the number of climbers who come to our mountains is actually quite low compared to other countries we're not going to fix or limit the number of climbers we're trying to get more tourists and climbers to come to nepal by giving them better facilities and safety we want to encourage them to come for both pleasure and fame but there is a plea not operations gets underway on everest it's not just rubbish they're collecting for more bodies were plucked off the mountain another reminder that the pursuit of pleasure and fame can come at a grievous price. all right let's bring in any canadian filmmaker who's climb mount everest several times now he joins us from the poles capital katmandu and you you were climbing everest just last week i believe for a film you're currently shooting tell us what's making it so much more dangerous
10:20 am
why a climb is dying so for the very 1st time with my own eyes that going on everest 8 times i've stood on the summit 3 times now for the very 1st time with my own eyes i saw the infamous queues you know that are making headlines right now and on our way from camp 3 to camp 4 we could already see that there were you know 40 or 50 climbers ahead of us and that evening there were over 250 climbers that reading to summit so the queues are obviously a huge issue you know the narrow weather window as mentioned earlier is also another issue and of course there's the grand issue of lack of experience on the mountain that's causing a lot of problems and many of these fatalities said the government simply be strict in the way it hands out climbing climbing punit. i believe so you know they should limit the number of permits china has led the way this year with their approach of limiting the number of permits i think the other thing that would be
10:21 am
very helpful would be you know creating a prerequisite of having summit in 1000 meter peak before you're seeing a very inexperienced climbers you know there are actually some climbers on the mountain where everest was their 1st mountain that would be incredibly helpful the other thing as well is i mean i just think people need to take this more seriously you know we see these images on social media we see them in the media we see seemingly ordinary people standing on top of the world and it's creating a culture of well i can if they can do it i can do it but then people are showing up they're trying to save money they're hiring irresponsible outfitters and those outfitters are also responsible for some of these fatalities as well as the climbers themselves said so essentially it's people overestimating their own abilities and a lack of understanding of of really what climbing mount everest means. so lack of understanding but it's also a lack of support you know when you hire a local company and pay $25.00 to $35000.00 you're compromising quality you're not
10:22 am
getting adequate sherpa support you're not getting enough oxygen you not getting the right strategy or leadership to prepare you to go into the death zone to climb to 9000 meters above sea level and to understand exactly what you're getting yourself into and it also having the leadership to educate you on when enough is enough you know you see climbers that push themselves beyond the limit by some many people that were climbing up to the summit and they really should have been turned around i tried to coax turning around saying you know there's there's no shame you know and being humble and admitting defeat because your life legacy is not worth it . yes you said yourself you've climbed everest several times just tell us your own experience what does it feel like if you get to the top of the top of every everest describe the thing to us. well in the past it's absolutely been exhilarating in 2013 i stood on top of the world we had the entire summit to ourselves this year as we approached the top you know one of the young ladies from the documentary
10:23 am
dream of everest that i was shooting she pulled her oxygen mask off her hair is for us and you know and she said to me you know where's the summit billionaire and i pulled my own off and i said do you not see the 60 people. piled up on a rock so that was that was my experience just exhilarating but this year it was quite complicated being up there because there were so many people and cycling in katmandu thank you so much for speaking to us. formula one legend mickey loud i will be buried today in his hometown vienna austria he died last week at the age of 70 a 3 time world champion loud acclaimed his first 6 title with ferrari in 1975 a horrific crash at the german crown pray the following year very nearly cost the austrian his life allowed and made a remarkable recovery and went on to win 2 more championships in 1977 and 84 an iconic figure retired in 1905 but he remained active in formula one throughout his life. and tom de noise here from sports to tell us
