the reasons why a lot of young people feel like this integration is not for them with this deal that is higher particularly for much perhaps from them some people actually just a couple of days ago before this they are very proud to be a jury and. also let you know what they can not some are going to feel the way she is going to see a very firm and because he feels that the current government that was the past government through the process there's simply not doing enough for them let's have a listen. these young men in this cocktail bar and if the president were to stop by they would make a very special drink for him. if he needs a strong drink so maybe you could resets. when you get a strong drink you put you to sleep when you wake up maybe you is going to think about all these youths gave a strong drink let's see what we could do for them. they feel he's doing way too

12:05 pm
a bihari supporter eager to join the festivities around his president we need patience room was no butin there be no saying of the saints but i don't see it but . for now. president mahmoud the war president lacks 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. so i mean we just heard there and your report about voter apathy many young nigerians who don't support group hari who as we mentioned have been inaugurated today what are biharis main challenges as he gives up for his 2nd term. biggest challenge is basically to make you know that's
12:06 pm
a report card going. around after you've heard that you want to repeat they want jobs he wants a future you want to become leader to thank you but they don't feel that the our empire our future is a country which is making that possible yes that he says all the guarantees the quarterly cities corruption make sure the supremacy or security nigeria has a 2nd chair for you can't do it alone with the government. trying to char in nigeria's capital abuja just thank you sunny. well let's get a quick check now some 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 that meeting russian foreign minister sergei lavrov called for the complete withdrawal of international forces from afghanistan. and australia newly elected prime minister scott morrison has been sworn into office

a week after his conservative coalition won a surprise victory in cabinet a boot camp why is the 1st aboriginal person to become minister for indigenous us. in argentina activists are renewing efforts to legalize abortion lawmakers have said that they would introduce a bill to legalize the terminations of pregnancy is up to 14 weeks a similar motion passed the lower house of congress last year but was defended defeated in the senate due to opposition from religious groups. at least 11 people have been injured in a wave of tornadoes that struck the u.s. state of kansas and missouri the twisters destroyed several houses and brought down power lines in the kansas city area it came a day after 30 people were injured by debris as a tornado hit ohio. 2 european politics next and a clash over who should take the e used top job german chancellor angela merkel and french president emmanuel stand
12:08 pm
divided on this issue back to the process by which the biggest party so-called leave candidate takes the post in this case the head of the european people's party who also happens to be a fellow german but the problem is calling for the selection process 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 now to what the 2 heads of state had to say after their talks last night. because the german government is committed to the principle of the candidates however the parties represented in the coalition have different views as to which candidates is best suited to this. distaste with their preferred names we will be stuck because none of the groups have a majority on the left and even if 2 of them work together they still have a majority we need 3 joy even 4 groups to do things different. so some obvious differences of opinion there let's break it down with teri schultz who is joining
12:09 pm
us from brussels so terry e.u. leaders they had hoped to be at least agreeing last night on the process for choosing the next european commission president why are they sort of stuck of the standstill right now well sort of the fact that they can't even agree on how this person should be chosen much less who he or she should be underscores just how significant this job is and that's because the commission is the only institution that can propose legislation which of course has a huge impact on all $28.00 member countries and the president of the commission also will get to decide which commissioner from which member country gets what job in the new commission who's going to be in charge of trade who gets energy which country is going to provide the next federica mobile foreign policy chief so there's a lot of power in that job and no one's going to give it up easily and the fact that european parliamentary elections took the top 2 political groups down a notch or 2 means that political groups from other other sizes are saying hey
12:10 pm
we're tired of those 2 groups having a lock on the top job and we want it. does this debate terry mean that we could see a new commission president coming from potentially one of the smaller political groups and how exactly might that work. that's right it does mean that and in fact the fact the debate has been reopened is seen as favoring margaret the vestavia she's from the 3rd political group the liberals and she's somewhat of a unifying figure she's also a female which is which is important but you know there's also the possibility that someone who is not a nominee of the political groups could come in and swoop this job out from under the noses of these candidates and the name mentioned in that capacity is michel barnier the bronx a negotiator so it's really wide open at the moment and it's going to be a long fight gender balance started a little bit bare you know it's something that we're hearing a lot about when it comes to the use top jobs with european council president on so sang that it's a priority for him are we going to see more women taking on key roles you think
12:11 pm
well sarah we've heard this before zhang klobuchar also said he was going to have a more gender balance commission and he only managed to have fewer than a 3rd of his commissioners female but you're right president has said that for him it is very important that 2 of the top 4 jobs be women if possible that underscores another problem member states do not propose women equal numbers for these top jobs so the problem starts way below brussels but in fact the there's a renewed interest in this and you know margaret's investing a strong candidate c. may change things sarah teri schultz in brussels thank you. well now to turkey where the largest city istanbul is preparing for a rerun of its may oral election in a few weeks time following a complaint from president erika want elsewhere in turkey it's not uncommon that candidates who have won an election are prevented from taking up their positions
