9:09 pm
a truly devastating crisis the country is experiencing right now but the polarisation the report was just talking about also spills over into the hopes people have for these elections a lot of people say that the only reason why people aren't out in the streets here in argentina like they are for example in chile is that these elections are coming and that with them people are hoping for a democratic change that is about to arrive other people especially older voters are saying that they have no hope for this country in the state it is in right now because no matter who you vote for everybody is corrupt that is what they believe there is a deep distrust into the political class here in argentina they say that crises are part of the argentinean circle of life and that even if the government that is to come leaves the country out of this crisis it's only a matter of time until the next one strikes there was the cold for their reporting

well voters in the german state of the regio which is in the heartland of germany they go to the polls this weekend it's an election that's shaping up into another crucial test for transfer on the americans conservative c.d.u. party the far right party has been polling strongly and could overtake the conservatives as the state's number 2 party behind the post communist left party the regio was part of the former east germany before unification in 1900 it's the only german state with a governing coalition that's headed by the left party w. reporter on your return to her hometown air for us to gauge the mood ahead of sunday's vote. renovated 3 cows this and narrow and waste just like in fairy tales. small medieval city front a well known and loft in the eastern state of the ranger. that was my home for
9:12 pm
a long time i spent most of my youth and soaring jet and went to effort to study when i lived here people didn't argue much about politics like then they if they didn't even exist but now they are likely to win at least 20 percent of the road and i wonder whether they have changed their region. leftist off right that's often what people here want to know is politics dividing the state into. i try to talk about it with former classmates but then i noticed that most of the people i was friends with have moved away to big cities just like i did i was right back saying it's a delicate topic society i hear it's pretty divided but no one wants to talk to me about it on camera. to get an idea of what's going on now i go to an a if t.
9:13 pm
campaign event the far right edge. is considered the top candidate here he insults other parties and journalists too but can his constituency accept of opinions or reasons or. if you have more i always look for an arena where i could influence people and if there is someone who doesn't want to accept this then i'm sorry you consider the next table and drink his beer alone. when we have a family celebration sometimes we start arguing my wife keeps the arguments from escalating by changing the subject. i need to withdraw to handle he has been the state prim you know of 3 for the past 5 years he's the only left party state premier engine money many think he's down to earth and he's pragmatic but while he was in office the a if t. succeeded in expanding its base so why couldn't the left party keep the f.t.
9:14 pm
in check and to put i try to keep them in check they began polarizing the constituency i want to talk to the people on the streets and i want an end to this polarization and i want to let the people know where we stand and where we're headed or know if they can vixen. the only problem is that the range is becoming increasingly polarized that's what left party supporters keep telling me. there's a small rebellion but it's not a small as we'd like it to be. some people irreconcilable if that speech is harsha more vicious and dimwitted my old hometown seems withdrawn and i fear of the state elections might make things worse. according to a poll on the left party with the board a woman or the more full port but might not succeed in forming a coalition government since no one wants to work with the a.f.p. the federal and state is the drift of the political deadlock which would further
9:15 pm
deepen the social trenches. sometimes when i go back home i feel like a stranger. a stranger in our own home to argue about that and more i'm joined now by our chief political editor bill keller. first talk about the polarization that we saw in that report was there so much polarization for that city what the big tent parties who would like to see both ends of the spectrum also debate under that tent just like the social democrats are so in crisis and i'm going to you are trying to find out so did the i mean one thing is quite clear that in theory you know what we actually have really good data of people favor of democracy at the same time their favor of having a much foma grip on politics so much fun a high and so there's a lot of potential there physically for the far right a 50 to tap into and it's an interesting direct standoff between the left and far
9:16 pm
left and the and far right this is unique and it's the politics of extremes almost how one would you see it is that the far right if he could become part of the regional government after the election it simply won't happen because the major parties doubt going into any coalition with the far right if t. and this raises the question what else could happen and the left party the unable to form a coalition i'm going to michael's conservative c.d.u. party has also ruled out going into coalition with the left party so the math simply don't add up they would have to be creative and if anything this is proof that the far right if he has a very minus to shake up i dare say disrupt the usual. politics in particular done here and that's an important point because that takes is the next level why does this what does it matter beyond the range of what is why does it matter on the national level and why should german chancellor merkel why should she be concerned
9:17 pm
well she's a lot less concerned than she was just a couple of months ago i mean we see her so-called grand coalition with the social democrats politically pretty much on the rocks and the only thing that's holding them together is that they know if they were to cool fresh elections which is not easy here in germany would need a long lengthy process and they both have a lot to lose rather than anything to gain so the ring is yet another test of how bad things are for the big tent parties and typically how bad things can still get for the social democrats because as you know the time you and i were talking about this earlier this is the 1st election in germany that we've had since the attack on that synagogue in hollow which is north of the range of is not that far away. do you think that's going to have any impact on this election well if it will be interesting to see whether it's has certainly it has seen a lot of statements from politicians who have also been threatened by far right
9:18 pm
circles. basically calling for a no extremism but beyond the most far right extremists politician within the far right if tea leaves if tea into these elections and they look like they could become the 2nd strongest force it doesn't really look like that's made much of a difference right or chief political editor mcculloch if as always thank you well as a resigning it's been just 2 weeks ago that synagogue of the eastern german city of hala was the target of an anti-semitic attack that attack failed but 2 passers by died when the gunman simply opened fire today the president of the world jewish congress went to holland to pay tribute to the victims. candles and flowers evidence of what happened here police company ronald lauder he has come to visit the scene of the attacks lauder is president of the world jewish congress an organization that was established in 1986 in reaction to the rise of naziism and
9:19 pm
the growing way for european anti semitism 80 years later anti semitism is on the rise again i was told by what happened. these are always in danger but we should do everything we can to action. after the attack and holler jewish leaders have called for more security at your sites the synagogue was not the only target when the shooter was unable to open the door he shot a female possible and a man attic about shop about 600 meters away this is where ronald lauder is headed next he wants to pay tribute to the victims on the phone he reaches the owner of think about shop. if you. will but. why does it happen. where did these people get that he. was not going to be learned from him to the very few other politicians and people talking about he must be able
9:20 pm
to stop these groups following the attack germany's interior minister stressed the importance of a strong police presence in front of the country synagogues many people are calling on the german government to take more decisive action against right wing extremism i feel one way said. the other way when i see the flowers and. i'm optimistic optimistic picture can rise above this type of. all this weekend's wonderfully good action that sees a shock to host the last year dortmund and what is germany's fiercest derby game in the tell us all about i'm joined now by john think rain from v.w. sports. and what can we expect a young man well if meetings are anything to go by we can expect lots of goals we have 40 last season for all the season before that forget dortmund by dortmund. and this in this league is a big grudge match is called in germany the mother of all darby's and missing
9:21 pm
father is what he really can't afford to lose it and the pressure after a string of poor results and if the room is it to be believed then the special one and so gerry cena renia is being lined up to replace him so there is a lot at stake in this one. this match is being billed as lucy in the fall for his date with destiny if some reports are to be believed a defeat against bitter rivals shall kill would spell the end of his reign is dortmund coach is the rising on the. far right says not as good as his efforts at darby is a very special game i've known that since the moment i arrived it's very important but there's a pressure for every game and it's no different for shell shock said darby and it's very special. a special match but one with bad recent memories for dortmund fans a 42 home defeat at the end of last season to their title chances but form and
9:22 pm
past study results will count for nothing according to the man preparing for his 1st road r.t. . i don't think you can automatically draw any advantages or disadvantages not even from the latest results and especially not darby results. what happens in the days or weeks before it doesn't matter. it's completely irrelevant exclaims or maybe just. and it's all down to one game nothing less than local bragging rights are up for grabs and for some jobs are on the line too. so jonathan what makes this fixture then so special but it's a rivalry that goes back to 1925 but it wasn't really until the late sixty's when the bullets league was still quite new that the rivalry started heating up these 2 sides are very close geographically just 30 kilometers apart but it's a dobie kind of unlike a lot of others look dobby's
9:23 pm
a founded on kind of religious or political divides the south and in fact they both have working class backgrounds they're very proud about that but that makes them very very passionate your friends if you are some of the machines like sometimes you get the impression that they hate each other's team more than they actually love their. dads so the name of the opponents and again if you are some of them would you rather do when the bird is in a good size or when the dobby match then they would imagine mazie got ok so it's understandable that the emotions are running high here but what does each side have to gain besides bragging rights well it is incredibly close to the top of the brain as they were the moments they were when could send the the sites hoping that shout will probably be kicking themselves a bit already because they've had a couple of chances in recent weeks to go top already but if you're. new into the job things are going really in the right direction he's sitting pretty dormant counterpart at least in the fall when you talk about what do they have to
9:24 pm
gain what does he have to lose because he really is under pressure they've had some very inconsistent performances don't when they strayed away leads when they should have won games and that's not really the kind of form you want if you're going to be a title contender and we talk about passion passion of the fountain found one thing father gets criticized always is softly softly approach sometimes you know he's a good tactician is one of good having stuff up here but you sometimes need something in here you as well don't have to be don't you just instead of using your noggin as they say any other big games that you're looking for this weekend. and then you in the band is legal remember they travel to munich to face the mighty bind doesn't really come much bigger than that. if there is also under pressure that pressure is never really gone away they've only picked that one point from the last few games that he will really need to win against you know leaders grab back an action against. the ne and b. since i did the league will have to protect that against a lot of action there is one of the great b.w. sports jonathan as always thank you you're welcome. this is g
