elections but what is really forcing these phones to become friends is their desire to leave. out of politics and out in the cold he exudes call the gist of it conti has been on a wild ride 3 weeks ago he lost his job as prime minister when italy's governing coalition fell apart now he's been tasked with putting together a new government in office the wealth of the the country is in a very delicate phase we must put the political uncertainty triggered by the government crisis behind us as soon as possible we're facing critical economic problems. but i think that we could be sure that. the new coalition partners the antiestablishment 5 star movement and the center left democratic party make strange bedfellows many italians don't see the marriage lasting long. time so . you never seem to get that i think this agreement is a bad thing you know. because they have haiti to each other for
5:31 am
a long time and now they are forging an alliance so i really don't think it's a clever thing. some of them being to i'm not very sure because i don't think they will last long. because the differences are obvious and i think there are huge differences in the political programs of the 2 parties that the clear loser so far is far right league party leader matteo he pulled the plug on the last coalition by removing his party's participation he was widely seen to be angling for new elections but the new coalition puts a vote off for now i mean pick you up i would then vote those who are afraid of elections can run away for a month 6 months or a year. but not forever. the only thing that unites them is their hatred of the league know your. the drama is likely to settle down in the coming days conte said the new government's most urgent task is to come up with
5:32 am
a budget for the coming year. and joining me now from rome is journalist sima good to us it is good to see you well what are the situation in italy right now i mean we've seen multiple failed attempts in recent years to form a stable italian government is this going to be the magic combination. i think that's the question everybody's wondering i mean at some stage 14 months ago when we saw on the 5 star movement getting together with the far right party everybody thought well that these these 2 are populist parties so perhaps the last we've seen that fall apart and now it's anybody's guess as to how long this coalition will last in terms of the government but for the moment you've got to and then he has the mandate now to form this government he has to live together who's going to be hitting the different ministries of both parties and going to be jockeying for
5:33 am
positions on top of that they've got to come up with a particular program to which they will have to put this new government to a vote of confidence in both houses of parliament for the moment however we've seen a positive reaction as far as the markets i concerned on thursday when some of the bond yields fall to one quite a wreck was low also purely the markets believe that this grouping is at least more positive towards the european union as the perhaps the last one yeah that's a positive sign for sure and what about the interior minister matteo selvi i mean it it's almost like it's a machiavellian move that he made right bringing down this government surely he didn't think that he was going to end up being out of the next government but that's what is apparently going to happen has he been completely pushed out of politics with this. well not completely pushed out but definitely pushed out of government and then as you said a gross miscalculation on his part now he has actually referred to what's happening
5:34 am
now is a test of democracy and he believes that the italians have been stolen off their right to an election in order to decide and leave now he believes that this government in his words was appointed by brussels appointed by the big powers within europe by france and germany and not by talents themselves for the moment though the president said there are a lot had the right to find a new prime minister and to give him the mandate in order to continue and that's why he's seen infante hoping that they will go forward and the priority be the budget for 2020 but mr salvini is not going to go quietly into the night he said you can't get rid of the this process and it's part of the supporters to gather together and call for a deal for artists on october 19th and let you go outside of italy are saying that this proves that the populace they can not govern oh it's been
5:35 am
reported that way in italy well even in italy i think the view is that big just want to see a government come together and to avoid going to another vote in the feeling among regular italians that there was frustration with selvi pulled the plug on the government because they didn't want to see it happen so quick and we saw some of his popularity fall as a result of this now we'll have to see how the democratic party and what together with what was once the arch rivals and whether mr salvini wants to see that fall apart and whether he will then come forward in a fresh election for the moment during we'll just have to see what ministers they're going to put forward what programs and whether it's going to be approved in the house of parliament all right some of the purporting. to thank you for. well the united states is launching a unit in charge of its defense operations in outer space the name space command president trying to build the new defense into d n a ceremony at the white house
5:36 am
today analysts predict space may become an area where future conflicts are waged many believe space command is a precursor to donald trump's plans for an entire new wing of the u.s. military called space force here is part of what trump had to say today the dangers to our country constantly evolve and so must we now those who wish to harm the united states to seek to challenge us and the ultimate high ground of space it's going to be a whole different ball game we're going to stay here on earth washington d.c. our bureau chief there alexander for numbs he's on the story for us tonight good evening to you alexander i mean this does does sound a little bit like star wars tell me what is the difference between space command and space force. well space force is the future at least according to a president trump he wants to create a totally new and potentially independent branch of the u.s.
5:37 am
military military to oversee all military operation in space but to achieve this goal he needs congress he needs congregational approval congressional authority and congressional funding and that can take years and of course there are a lot of people critics questioning this adventure as they called it so therefore the trump administration has decided to move forward with establishing this space command it's and you need to as you have mentioned operating on that the umbrella of the u.s. forest consists of 87 people and it will draw all forces from all over a services in the u.s. military in how we supposed to imagine what space command is is preparing for all xander are we talking about space ships in. battle with each other i

5:39 am
known for saying in the sixty's we want to put a man on the moon in that decade because of what the soviets were doing now in china is in outer space is that a motive for trying to push ahead with space command in space for. yes i think that you're totally right china is a very good example because for example in 2018 china so plus the united states in the total number of space launches china has also managed to land a rover on the backside of the moon and by doing so they showcase a technical and technological advantage china has been accused of trying to. hijack. satellites operate. and russia is an average example russia has been accused of trying to jam g.p.s. signals that are important for nato military drills so that's why the white house
