crisis in decades late tuesday guys put them on put catalonian independence bit on hold but spy suspending the decoration from boston and i join a home reports. he arrived to the parliament building bristling with expectation a heavy police presence into the weighty announcement to come but carlos demobbed president of catalonia has regional government stopped short of a full declaration of independence. as president it's my responsibility to declare that catalonia should become an independent state in the shape of a public. should become the words greeted with browsing applause in the chamber before the independent state party was put on hold. we asked the parliament to suspend any effects of the declaration of independence so that we can have dialogue and so that we can find the necessary solution we need to lower tensions and show our will and commitment to meet the demands of the catalan people the reaction in
the dritte came swiftly and this course not kato your present day and age that the speech that the catalan president has made today is a speech by a person who doesn't know where he is where he's going or with whom he wants to go the government cannot accept that the catalan referendum be validated because it's been suspended by the constitutional court. having consistently refused to talk one centrist politician suggested the time may have come for the government to compromise i think the better way they can solve the problem is with that negotiation some kind as i said of mediation a disappointment perhaps to some staunch secessionist to take tonight would be their night but sweet relief to many who fear the consequences of an upright declaration of independence after threats from madrid and the flight of top companies from catalonia since the referendum on october the first. face it you
don't regret it was his last alone or the faithful who gathered to watch the speech on the big screens left deflated but accepted that all was not lost i'm happy that he's given us time in or the for people things we really don't understand what's the situation we can say what does it mean what the president just said so assigned declaration but independence deferred which demands speech stipulated no timeline for talks with madrid the drama of catalonia is independence that has played out in this parliament building for nearly one hundred years isn't over yet jonah hill al jazeera barcelona. we have correspondents covering both sides of this story so. this extraordinary cabinet meeting is now underway what can we expect. next likely to be. well i think the point fully is this that it's true that
jonah said that it was independence deferred here the government doesn't see it that at all they regard it as a declaration of independence because they sign the dotted line and so consequently they're incensed by what the catalan government did last night what i think they also see potentially is a weakness and a split inside the capital an independence movement because clearly the far left wanted it done immediately and the more conservative elements were more cautious because they fear very much catalonia falling outside the european union they try to bridge that and they want to try to exploit what they potentially see as a split inside the independence movement and so consequently i think they want to go into the attack having said last night that there are no grounds for negotiation in that regard it is outrageous what the council on government did their options now i think basically probably only one it doesn't look like they're going to try
to arrest him which had been a threat what i think they may easily do is to infocom siegel one five five of the constitution and take back power as from council lonia on the grounds that is they would say the catalan government doesn't know what it's doing is making up and inventing laws as it goes along when it's incompetent and then capable of running its own affairs obviously that would be seen in catalonia as an enormous provocation but at the moment the spanish government seems in absolutely no mood to try to negotiate at all so no negotiations. as we heard in the speech yesterday. very conciliatory and it felt at times that he was communicating launch me to the international community going out of his way to project an image of moderation and inclusiveness can we expect now some sort of external mediation in this crisis to kick in or is this a pretty much domestic affair. now i think i think once spain has said its piece
today and on all national day tomorrow which is a public holiday then there will be a lot of behind the scenes work over the coming weeks to try to figure out exactly how they go forward clearly everybody is looking at the european union and the european commission as the primary in all of this i think though there may be a problem with that because the european commission and the european union's leading players of all saves the day they gain scotland independence and they want things to be done by the rule of law which is effectively the spanish position and if they did end up being the mediator in any future negotiations if spain actually pulls back very slightly then the council and side might see them as being potentially biased towards the spanish side but certainly from the european union's perspective having said. the president the european commission said in the speech only a couple of weeks ago that having seen off nationalist movements in the last twelve months all strayer the netherlands france and merkel and restored in germany as
well the sense it was back in charge and we said we must move forward together in unity and so the very last thing that the european commission wants right to the end the twenty seventeen is yet another fracture and so i think whatever negotiations the european union might be involved with it would have the end goal of stopping kathlyn independence for them that's absolutely a red line laurin sydney in madrid thank you very much for that let's get the view now from. sonia last night was a big climb down for there's no denying that i think what's the feeling this morning in boston and throughout the cotton on your region. well as you mentioned big climb down but certainly not one that many people had gathered to hear mr preacher once address were necessarily surprised even reflecting on the papers today looking at a left wing daily here pause for a dialogue is the is the headline on one of them compared to a national
a spanish national daily here which has been quite reflective of the government's voice is saying here that perhaps what is happening here is a new trap for the spanish government but people here are disappointed the feeling is very much that what mr preacher monty's done has been in effect a good tactical move the fact that he has reflected this by engaging in the dialogue whilst giving that symbolic example of. apologies for that we've lost connection to in boston are there who was bringing a reaction to calmest ridgemont speech last night in which he symbolically declared the independence of catalonia but. short of outright declaration of independence and said calling for dialogue with the central government in madrid let's go back to go in boston and sonia so what next then for the council on your government in light of the response we've heard so far from madrid.
well really they've the sense is now is that the ball is in madrid's court is that after so much pressure especially from brussels as well to proceed through this whole thing with dialogue rather than using actions which could have irrepairable consequences very much they are seeing madrid as having to react next now course madrid's reaction as lawrence has said is to remain its tough stance but at least this could be perceived as a public relations win for the capsule and government and for the session its movement of course many people who had gathered to him mr preacher once address didn't necessarily want independence to be declared right now now is not the right time and of course the flight from barcelona to other cities as well maintaining that economic pressure or blackmail as it was perceived here really also did give people some food for thought as to how they wanted to proceed and
a lot of the voices within mr preachments own party the ruling coalition had already said that perhaps now was not the right time right but certainly one tactical step further for there to proceed forward with a dialogue going by through and i think you very much for that we're also following big developments in kenya the parliament there is expected to discuss a proposal lecture an amendment concerning the upcoming presidential election rerun on tuesday opposition leader rhino dingo withdrew his candidacy saying electoral officials had failed to make necessary changes and he called for country wide nationwide countrywide protest reforms now back in august the supreme court in kenya declared the results of the presidential election which gave a victory invalid now president kenyatta says the vote will still go ahead in just over two weeks catherine sawyer has our report from nairobi. well into.
the. unprecedented times in kenya right loading and his not opposition coalition say they will not participate in a poll they feel is predetermined one where the same individuals and companies that oversaw the last election are still in place. almost foldable. going to have to. have a deliberate. decision. in the coming election. in place with the people ok. with the new world of hurt. believe that all reversed. but judging from the tension hundred villages
did you hope to. achieve. supporters have been staging demonstrations against the electoral commission. and calling for electoral reforms commission officials say some of the opposition demands are and reasonable and there is simply no time to implement them the political situation in the country is worrying many i'm afraid of what fellas i think have moved on i am a strong feeling that kenyans not really moved on but they've accepted that species . this and that. in order to conflict that. people would accept that and. already. everywhere everywhere kenya is in uncharted territory politically and constitutionally the law isn't clear on what happens in a situation like this the constitution does not envision an eventuality where no
reelection is held within a sixty day legal timeline which expires at the end of the month lawyer save no election is held by the deadline there will be a constitutional crisis president who has been busy campaigning he says he's ready for an election with all without trial. should he be declared the winner and induced anyway then the legitimacy of his presidency will inevitably be questioned many kenyans are feel full about what the political grandstanding between the two sides is doing to the country tensions are high the economy is struggling the country is very much in limbo cathy zoi al-jazeera nairobi kenya and live. in the kenyan capital nairobi from a so kenya's appears to be in a political and constitutional limbo right now what exactly are we expecting to hear from the parliament today will they actually be an election at the end of the month. will follow at this point there are
a number of issues. to this uncertainty at this point in parliament waiting to hear more about a debate that began on tuesday around new. amendments to the existing electoral law which ultimately would allow for a remaining candidates in the election to be declared the winner in the case of one of the other candidates in this case withdrawing but where we are now is in the middle of nairobi. has officially withdrawn from these upcoming elections his political battle certainly has not ended for his supporters at the very least expecting thousands of people to gather here in protest against the electoral commission and this is where. the elections are. said that
he doesn't have any faith based on what happened that the upcoming elections these fresh elections would be free and fair and this is why he withdrew and of course this uncertainty does lead to a certain amount of tension in the country people don't know what could happen next there are a number of scenarios one of course would be that these elections. october twenty sixth could take place he. could be declared the winner because he's the only contender but what's important is that. other contenders can participate initially these in new elections. and to work in the top two contenders when all those they can be other contenders and if this is the case take place it would at least lend some legitimacy to this new election. has called for protests nationwide protests to demand reforms and i see his supporters there behind you but are they heeding this call to protest throughout
the country and what is the mood like in kenya right now in light of this political crisis this ongoing political drama. position are still seems to be in various parts of the country especially. but what is worth noting that many kenyans are straighter than exhausted by this ongoing process which at times seems to be very mucky when there's so much uncertainty around the way forward a lot is resting on want be electional commission will say in terms of the way for their meeting with their legal team to determine exactly what should happen based on what the constitution says from my colleagues. is that the constitution doesn't necessarily say you want to make. certainty we do see some. direction. thank you very much for that and we
say with african counting is underway in liberia's elections to determine who will take over from president ellen johnson sirleaf the vote is seen as a crucial test of stability in the country marking the first democratic transfer of power in more than seventy years voters at twenty. to choose from to replace africa's first elected female leader i am told though the government has banned all make mid week marches as protests gather steam against. a family present. by. forty years the government is proposing two presidential terms. this won't be applied until after the next elections in two thousand and twenty this means that. power until twenty fifth. still ahead i knew refugees from myanmar. and starvation.
