5:04 pm
here let's see if we can get that connection back are you able to hear me now. it's like we may have lost our connection we'll see if we can get back to your 100 mirrors reporting for us. and we have to get back to as we continue on the mirrors the reporting for us from fallujah. our list move on now to spain where citizens are also voting today they're voting in the 4th election in 4 years opinion polls show prime minister pedro sanchez and his socialist party in the lead there it's predicted they will not secure a majority far right fox party could double its seats in parliament after a rise in the last election voter fatigue has set in the midst spain's political paralysis party leaders urged them to turn out for sunday's ballot the 2nd this year the country is deeply divided but one thing voters do seem to agree on is ending the stalemate. so. i really hope that we can end this confusing
5:05 pm
situation because in the end it will not lead us anywhere and so i am you know there's a high percentage of people who aren't show up to vote today but i think people just stick to their parties and there might be a major difference in the end you know with the simple fact that if they can't agree this time it will be the last time i vote and they also shouldn't be paid anymore. the snap election was called after incumbent leader pedro sanchez failed to form a government with the left wing put they most party but analysts predict the deadlock will only worsen with smaller parties tipped to enter parliament for the 1st time. the far right box party is expected to make gains thanks to their hard line against catalan separatists the crisis was a central issue during campaigning critics of the president say sanchez a stance has been too soft something that could cost him crucial votes.
5:06 pm
from. more than election i'm joined by our correspondent lisa lewis she is in madrid for us now lisa we heard some of the voters there in that piece i mean it certainly seems like for lections in 4 years is having its told me people seem a bit fed up. well absolutely there's a great sense of value to the city good here in madrid the voters we've been talking to at this polling station in the center of the capital today have been telling us yes i am turning out to vote because it's my obligation as a citizen but i'm really not enthusiastic about this i really hope that politicians will finally get their act together one day to even say that you know this is the last time i will vote if they don't manage to try and form a coalition and come back and come together as a stable government however when you look at the participation rate we had 1st because at 2 o'clock in the afternoon there the rate is at 38 percent that's 3
5:07 pm
percent lower than in april this year certainly it's gone down but if you look at historical data it's not a sharp drop in participation and that means that up to up on to now the situation the ongoing political deadlock doesn't seem to have had a huge impact on participation now we've seen of course those violent protests in barcelona from the pro independence movement what role was is the issue of catalonia playing in this election. well this was actually the only does very the only topic in the one week election campaign after the riots broke out in catalonia all the parties were talking about that that issue really divided the country even further with mace parties taking a tough stance 1st of all the far right vox party that said that is now saying you know we knew to suspend the autonomy status and patch i don't hear other parties saying also we need to crack down on those violent protesters and the socialist
5:08 pm
party taking a more conciliatory approach because they actually traditionally gained quite a high number of seats in catalonia catalonia the region which relates 48 seats in congress the highest share for one regional and so the socialists want to gain parts of that vote but it was you that considered theory approach has not gone down very well in the rest of spain so polls are indicating that although in the beginning right after interim prime minister pedro sanchez could snap elections it was thought that he would win more seats than before and now polls saying of the saying that he's likely to gain less seats than in april 20th this year or one party is likely to gain some seats is that far right box already i mean why are they resonating so well this time around with voters. while vox is running on an anti immigrant anti feminist approach it's in favor of a strong central state really going back to the spanish nationalists nationalist
5:09 pm
roots is kind of waking up bad spirits from the past that's that apparently was still there and many people and all saying you know at least there's one party that says out loud what real will think so it's been gaining traction with this message and it remains to be seen if the party would really come 30 in parliament as some polls are predicting now. lisa lewis following data collection in spain for us thank you very much. well right here in berlin and germany has been marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall bence took place across germany's capital city with the main celebration at the brandenburg gate german chancellor angela merkel and other european leaders took part in a special ceremony to remember those who died under east germany's shoot to kill orders against anyone trying to flee to the west but the evening began with an iconic conductor leading an iconic symphony in front of an iconic backdrop.
