11:02 am
tone of a victory speech for his blue and white party. courting the initial results netanyahu did not succeed in his mission. was enough and we on the other hand proved that our idea called blue and white a project we established just over 6 months ago is a huge success and here to stay. god said that he would not get to work on building a broad unity government. but speaking to his supporters at likud party headquarters prime minister netanyahu did not concede defeat he said he would also seek potential allies to form a government but one that excluded our parties. in the coming days we will convene negotiations to assemble a strong zionist government answer prevent

11:04 am
a tense result we're still waiting i can benjamin netanyahu survives this battle for his political future. well this is sense him an israeli under this and also in the media that this revision of the elections has really we continued substantially he fails again you know to get 61 seats he needed to build. a coalition with other smaller parties out of 320 knesset it was his goal you know to be able to form a coalition of right wing national religious coalition clearly he failed at that but again there is also at the moment a sense a wait and see it because also of course blue and white cannot form easily a coalition there are only unofficial results at the moment we're still waiting for the preliminary results coming in and then we will probably see more. talks in the
11:05 am
next hours talking as we wait for those final results and then you know who's rival bank balance has said that he will not be entering any coalition with netanyahu if his party still has not slater now to remain in power would look who drop netanyahu . well i think that is the question it's too early to also mean there have been some reports before the elections you know talking about you know what's going on within the likud because i mean the scenario is well there you know if that happens what will happen to the head of the likud and to prime minister netanyahu so that but a lot of members who ousted and they're all so far pledged loyalty to a prime minister netanyahu because they say it's still too early to talk about such a move but of course it would be much easier to form such a unity government without benyamin netanyahu because as you rightly said many guns
11:06 am
has said they would go into a unity government without netanyahu ok now one of the stunning results of this election was for all of a door lieberman's secular nationalist party had his done very well is lieberman the new kingmaker in israel what potentially is the new kingmaker he already was the cause that last time the condition building failed for mr netanyahu both have been very very close allies over the past years but they fell out started all with will even one stepping down as defense minister and then after the elections in every didn't join the coalition and he did very well and these elections he already said last night that he wants to see a unity government with israel between his party could and blue and white and you put down also his demands so we have to wait and see how those talks will continue

e.u. parliament is due to adopt a resolution later today calling for britain to be granted another extension to agree to terms for its withdrawal. w.'s imax hoffman joins us now from a strong word for the very latest on this where the european parliament is meeting today good morning to you max it can you give us the take away from what's happening today in strong's burg. the 2 main messages from almost everybody who's involved in the negotiations of drugs were 1st of all no deal scenario no deal drugs and the 31st of october on the 31st of october is becoming increasingly likely that's not a surprise but maybe surprising to some is that its own code you are the head of the e.u. commission also said he thought a deal was still possible and that is the man who met boris johnson the u.k. prime minister on monday we don't know a whole lot about that meeting and with don't go don't go you never know if he
11:10 am
still has a card up his sleeve but as you mentioned the problem remains the insurance policy against a hard border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is part of the european union and really no details there what a solution could look like ok no details max but could that mean that that there might be a chance the e.u. could take a step towards boris johnson and renegotiate the bricks and deal all over once again. well all over certainly not if they touch something in the withdrawal agreement which they have always rejected by the way it would only be the backstop on the only really solution that is being sort of floated in brussels is to limit the scope of the backstop it wouldn't be a play couple to all of the u.k. but only to northern ireland i don't want to get into the details but the man himself include younger head of the e.u. commission can probably explain all this what the backs up is for better than i do
11:11 am
. the backstop is designed to do 3 things 1st of all to avoid a physical harm on the island of ireland secondly to safeguard the integrity of the single market and the place of god and in that market and sadly to protect north-south co-operation and the whole island economy which is absolutely crucial for stability and peace in ireland and indeed and try and in the good friday agreement. now max if there is any kind of last minute deal say it is on the backstop for example well the e.u. still have time to ratify it before october 31st which is approaching very rapidly we talk to you parliamentarians here because don't forget you know strasburg the last word is up to the e.u. parliament they will have to give their thumbs up in order to make this work and
11:12 am
they said there is no time left to make all of this happened until the 31st of october not even taking into account that the house of commons so the u.k. parliament even isn't even in session it's on a force vacation forced by boris johnson the u.k. prime minister so that doesn't mean it won't happen if they do find a solution at the last 2nd for example at the meetings of the leaders of the european union so you counsel at the end of october then what we expect to happen is a technical delay of bragg's it or a technical extension for a couple of weeks to get this done but that would only be technical and that's probably something that the u.k. prime minister boris johnson could very well sell it even to the brags that hardliners ok max thanks very much for bring us up to date from stross park. it's 2 sports now in the champions league where dortmund drew nil nil with barcelona in their group opener marco royce missing

11:14 am
. another challenge is way to play philippe could the brazilian playmaker has had a stuttering start to the season with no goals so far and only came on as a late some situ to get slight sick. he likes to play the number 10 role that's his sweet spot we'll try to give him that chance. he will give it is all offensively as well as defensively. i know that if he gets to play tomorrow. he'll perform well. of infidelity if this unit is good looking good for exactly how and if the chino will fit into nico kovacs his game plan remains to be seen by and would do well to start their champions league campaign with a win in a group that aside from a determined red star team also includes last year's run as uptalk no. let's give
