7:00 pm
you think ok we'll send our you waste to china but we have to remember that air pollution travels around the globe death by design at this time on al-jazeera sometimes pictures of the only way to truly tell a story and. to use some of the latest new camera gear and technology to make sure these images are innovative to be if you don't manage it is not just within the home because it's about giving. with the theme whenever needed. as a child of political refugees i've always been aware of different kinds of stories and different kinds of sensitivities al-jazeera has a space for the. exit polls show austria moving to the right. course to be the world's youngest leader. two hundred people. civilians and syrian eisel fighters escaped rock under
7:01 pm
a negotiated deal is us by syrian forces begin a final assault to take back the city also. making a difference one may miss a time the man who set up a lost and found booth to reunite separated ranger family. and wish you weren't here and its residents fight back against the tourists they say a ruining their beautiful city. but we begin in austria where exit polls put thirty one year old conservative sebastian coats on course to become the youngest leader in the world early indications show his center right people's party in the lead with thirty point two percent is pledged to go tough on immigration and easy on taxes it appears likely
7:02 pm
to form a coalition with hines question strikes far right freedom party which has twenty six point eight percent of the vote of been reports that you have already held behind the scene talks in third place the once mighty social democrat party which is on course for twenty six point three percent after a series of blunders and scandals during its campaign. let's get more now from david chase who's at the people's party h.q. in vienna and david it looks as the coalition horsetrading and talks have already started. it has indeed but at the moment to remember these are projections and the initial projections have already changed they were based on something like forty seven percent of the votes being counted the laces i have. the largest share behind me when you figures came through showing that sebastian and now capture something like thirty one point five percent of the vote
7:03 pm
so his vote is going up and the other news is that according to the latest count of the social democrats have just overtaken the freedom party on the hard right so a bit early to say exactly how these figures donna pan out with a lot of postal votes as well as some official results coming through the mix of the projections they're trying to get it right but essentially it is a very clear victory for one man and that is that thirty one year old sebastian curtis an extraordinary career for him a rapid rise in the politics of austria and a clear decision at this very important crossroads in politics in austria turn to the right and the near terms of the right because i think even even the hard right this in the freedom party end up in third place is still so close that it looks likely that their leader hands the christian rock will be called upon to form a coalition with this young chancellor thirty one year old.
7:04 pm
sebastian so the cheering still going on the little changes and the results are still going on what happened to the green party what happened to the other minor parties is still does very active here it's a moment but a very clear victory for. the thirty one year old. chancellor in waiting with i think we can call him now and success for his politics which were to try to steal the right wing clothing of the hard right party the freedom party that does work that's gone on him more votes and those votes are still going up as more and more results come in but remember there are something like marion seven hundred fifty thousand or so i think a record number of posts all voters and so in the end we're going to get the official official results at the end of the month but it's pretty clear even now the sebastian. has reached his ambition he's reached the summit of awesome politics
7:05 pm
. a big turn to the right and it means a lot of problems for anglo merkel in germany and ungrammatical in germany and emanuel back from. france because they were hoping very much to have a reliable partner in austria but now the government the coalition government might be formed here well essentially be heard all those versions to try and reform and revive the european union instead brussels will find that vienna is a problem much as poland and hungary of being so a lot of trouble a lot of turbulence ahead that will have to wait to see what policies come out and what the coalition talks i should a venture decide will be the policy of the next government but it is a severe swing to the right it is and as you say david sebastian kurtz is managed to do it by impact drawing on policy from the far right age and gender and adapting it to his own manifesto but
7:06 pm
a lot of the themes that we see in this election the scene play out in a sort of general shift to the right across the region what is it specifically about sebastian kurtz that captured people's imagination and support. american take a look at him he looks to the remind you a bit of trudeau in canada. he's young he's very young we've not seen a leader this young in such an important post also when he decided to break with the coalition back in in may he decided to reshape the whole movement if you created sort of you know like a presidential candidate he would hold the party around himself does that sound familiar yes it does it sounds like emanuel macro maybe he learned some lessons by watching the elections in france and he's shown that in the terms of the social democrats his former coalition partners that he's got an aggressive and ruthless streak and he's clearly shown that he'll he'll do anything it seems to garner the
7:07 pm
votes he needs to change the image of austria to change the place of austria within europe and when that within the world he's shown himself to be highly capable is ambition has been achieved it appears but of course as many people have pointed out he's got very little experience in international politics but i think he's going to make a great impact much as a man your mark wrong in the first few weeks i think we'll find exactly the same with this young man this thirty one year old who knows exactly what he wants to do and nice to. have that's right thank you very much david. and i says projections come in of course as we expect to get that final results a bit later on. the death toll from the powerful truck and car bombs that exploded in the capital
