2:02 pm
in just a moment would 1st have a look at this report. if he was disappointed on election night benyamin netanyahu wasn't showing it far from conceding defeat israel's longest serving president took to the stage vowing to remain at the helm with a likud led government that excluded arab parties. in the coming days we will convene a go she is to assemble a strong zionist government answer prevent a dangerous antis are in a scum and. netanyahu his plans may well be thwarted by opposition leader benny gantz he stopped short of declaring an election win but his address to supporters certainly had the tone of a victory speech for his blue and white party. if you had it so tell me the courting the initial results netanyahu did not succeed in his mission. and that he we on the other hand prove that our idea called blue and white

a project we established just over 6 months ago is a huge success and here to stay. this man immediately cast himself as kingmaker avigdor lieberman the backing of his secular right back to new party will be vital to the formation of any governing coalition. what are. we have just one option. a broad liberal unity government. form of use real bay to new. more. than blue and white. voters defied predictions of fatigue and turned out in larger numbers than the last poll in april now they want a path forward many say after 10 years in power it's time for netanyahu to go. you know you can sure you know who has probably run his course and his time has
2:04 pm
passed over i was one though it was a sell off air war in the end netanyahu is like a phoenix when we think he's finished he rises up again but i really hope that the government will change i think he was a good leader but i think it's about time to end the chapter or period. benyamin netanyahu is political survival is on a knife edge long deemed a political wizard this election may turn out to be the one that broke his spell. the death of used on a train line joins me now from jerusalem tanya more information is coming out there what's the latest you can tell us. yes the central election commission has released the latest figures now 90 percent over 90 percent of the votes have been counted now and this translates into 32 seats for blue and white and
2:05 pm
31 of for the likud now what and it is to you now immediately is to look at the different blocs what it means for the center left bloc which includes blue and white they would come up with $55.00 seats and the villages and writing block would come of this $56.00 seats so nobody actually is on the clear pass to form their own majority government now who comes in here as a possible kingmaker this is most likely it appears to be of it to leave them and this is where between know he has attained 9 seats and he already made clear that he would like to see a unity government but there is also talk at the moment but other scenarios for example like minority government that would also be possible so very tight result in the election there what does it mean for netanyahu israel along with 7 prime minister. well i mean it's a major setback and he seems to be have be really in a in a weak position now after this rerun of the elections he said last time to put
2:06 pm
a coalition together and he failed to put a coalition to his liking reese would have been a right wing coalition with the ultra also talks of parties and this in light of course over his legal troubles he faces possible indictment over corruption charges and the prejudgment hearings are in october so it's not quite sure you know what scenario you're going to be looking at but if you ask if he could support a stand not just quite. prepared to give up on mr netanyahu yet but there's also a sense in israel that nobody wants to see a 3rd election also the president has made clear he wants to proceed. quickly with a consultations now and then to toss to the leader who things has the most chances of putting a coalition together done in crema in jerusalem thank you very much for that update on the israeli elections that. if not bring up there are some other stories making

2:09 pm
following the discussions at the european parliament and he sent us this. no deal bragg's it is getting more and more likely some even believe it is the most likely scenario now that is the main message coming out of strasburg where the european parliament was in session but there was also the message from the head of the european commission john cougar who said we still have time we can still strike a deal the problem of course is that nobody here knows what this deal could look like because apparently there are no concrete proposals from the u.k. government on that so what we are doing is getting closer and closer to the braggs a deadline on the 31st of october without a real solution in sight the e.u. on its side is preparing for the scenario probably the only thing it can really do at this moment. that was due to lack of math or fund reporting from strasbourg the scotland's 1st minister is in berlin today to discuss brags that nicolas sturgeon
2:10 pm
is calling for a new referendum on your membership but as did the money in their struggles found out if that doesn't happen she's very young to put all options on the table including independence 1st minister you're calling for a 2nd referendum even if it's by no means clear that this outcome will be any different than last time and you're creating a new problem instead of bringing a solution where the u.k. has to find some way of breaking the deadlock over bricks at that it finds itself and i want to see a nearly general election and a referendum to give the u.k. the opportunity to change its mind know that it sees. difficult finding a way forward and bricks it has become so when you're in a deadlock you have to find a way forward of course i want scotland to remain in the e.u. i hope that you kira means in the e.u. but if it doesn't then scottish have the option of becoming an independent member state within the e.u. so that we can protect our position and our interests as part of the european
2:11 pm
family it doesn't look like the supreme court will rule against a suspension of parliament do you really think that told process will settle what is essentially a political well there has to be some limits on the ability of a government and in this case a minority government to close down parliament in order to avoid scrutiny so i hope and i respect the independence of the judiciary but i hope the supreme court will find the prude a geisha of parliament was unlawful a scottish court reached that conclusion last week and then we can see parliament recalled and much needed scrutiny applied to boris johnson's whole approach to break his approach i think is to see the uki crash be able to believe the european union for the heightened state we need. to avoid a new deal bricks are at request an extension to article 50 if necessary and then see a general election for the referendum to try to get the uki out of this how likely
2:12 pm
is it that the u.k. will crash out of the e.u. without a deal and would it mean the end for the united kingdom and i think it is a significant risk that the u.k. will crash it without a deal and that will have a severe impact on many people in scotland and it was sweet in the u.k. and i do think it will make it even more likely that scotland chooses to become an independent country i don't want to see that damage be done to scotland or the rest of the u.k. so we will continue to try to avoid a new deal brix it but it's very difficult to see how a deal is struck that both satisfies the european union and also gets a majority in the house of commons for a new deal brit's it cannot be ruled out or do we should seek for that extension if that is the only way to avoid it. that was scotland's 1st minister nicola sturgeon talking to larry nash giles getting out of south africa on a sergeant antiphon of violence is taking
