7:39 pm
been looking at the possibility of staging games in neighboring countries but with saudi arabia the united arab emirates and bahrain sending a blockade of cuts on kuwait under a man like an infrastructure. has been abandoned. let's talk mansour underwater sure who writes for inside world football and you just walk us through the timing of this announcement by faith. what you're hi andy i mean this is a significant blow for so johnny i'm going to know who was very good to pull this off not least because it would have generated somewhere in the region of 302400 1000000 extra dollars but you know as soon as it was mooted a couple of years ago it was a juno took it up and ran with it it became virtually a sort of pet project but as soon as the findings of this fee for feasibility study came out it was always going to be a tall order even though it went you know interestingly said that 90 percent of the
7:40 pm
fee for membership were in favor of adding 16 more finalists what this announcement is affectively done is bring the decision forward by 2 weeks i mean a recommendation was due to be made one way or the other by the fee for council 2 days before the upcoming congress in paris and it was on the agenda of the congress where of course it would have been debated by the entire fee for membership on the very day journey into juneau is to be reelected for another 4 years just give us an idea and cherish as you've seen it how big was the gap between his ambitions for an expanded sort of ensign and the reality of the practical and political situation in the gulf. with that that's the old that's the obvious question i mean he was banging the drum to try and push this through for several months but really it was fought with difficulty from the start for several reasons number one as you alluded to in your introduction the fact that could tars
7:41 pm
the trip qatar's neighbors. have imposed this block in this ongoing blockade which made it very difficult if not impossible to share the tournament with then you have to be shared it was going to be expanded but they obviously couldn't do it nor could own mom who recently said it simply didn't have the facilities so that kind of world out any how. co-host apart perhaps from with ok wait also you have the situation adding 16 more teams would have meant tenchi playing 6 matches a day in order to squeeze it squeeze the tournament into the $28.00 days that have been allocated and then of course you have to sort the situation looked at all because of its very size and this infrastructure simply couldn't holmes 48 teams on its own so it was i think it was you know extremely tricky to say the least from the still under was sure joining us there from inside world football thanks so much
7:42 pm
is a. pleasure well africa could have had up to 4 extra teams ass and large taunts going in journalist gary al smith says the fate the president will now face some tough questions from the consonance. african countries have historically honestly not done well at the world cup no matter how slight is given them and it's been the stick that has been used to us if i should put it that way for a long time it makes it even more difficult for african countries to progress to the latter stages of the competition and it's a must see a massive disappointment this was one of the promises he made to the different configurations and it appeared that he had delivered it but now that it's not what i thought it was de france you know we have to look for that courage to be able to give to their considerations a sweetness to be able to get votes for him next time well if the years of struggle berlin so-called rebel same f.c. union are on the verge of promotions germany's top league blunders leading to the
7:43 pm
very 1st time a team reliance on fan support rather than high finance by the 1st leg of a playoff with stuttgart later on this thursday when it came reports. as they go through their training routine the players of effort say when you'll have got one thing on their minds the chance to play in germany's blunders league next season but to get there they must 1st beat far i've got a team with a bigger budget that's used to life in the big league something new on is definitely not easily annoyed. when you have a new challenge you have to adapt to it there is a difference in quality between our league and the bundesliga but i can tell you we all want to get their club officials hope these might be among their biggest assets fans considered among the most fervent and most loyal in germany who support during the years of communist domination during the cold war was
7:44 pm
a focal point for those who opposed totalitarianism evolve going marty's played in goals but when you're on during the seventy's and eighty's he told me what it was like back then. it was great for us on a personal level but it was also hard because we had so many obstacles placed in our way we were the small team that no one wanted to look at and who they wanted to get rid off but in the end we are still here. teams from the old east germany have struggled to succeed since reunification indeed 15 years ago. finances were so poor the fans donated blood to raise funds to keep the club afloat. one of germany's leading football writers told me how significant efforts winning promotion would be not just for the club but also the blunders the it's the most interesting special. the only club which is which is still successful from the inside part and so on the other hand it's
7:45 pm
it's it has very interesting supporters they built the stadium by the supporters are together with the supporters for generations the stands have been packed with fans all loyal to their club through thick and thin with the hope they might one day see their team play in the big league we'll find out if that wish will come true on monday night dominic kane al-jazeera belin. and i'm support seems world governing body looks set to be stripped of the rights to organize fight city tokyo 2020 olympics the international olympic committee has made the recommendation with a final decision not to be taken and so next month or even finances and governance governance have been under investigation for 6 months boxing will go ahead inside can a matter what's with the international olympic committee prepared to organize the event itself. are going to be more forthright that i know reaction to that news
7:46 pm
that the 2020 world cup will not be expanded but that is it for me for now that it does not look for to see later that you very much need the end of bad is it for this news or richelle will be back with another full half hour of news in disco minute i mean the clock timing is quite enough. culture a dance thrives here every day generations of tibetans continue to brace and retain their cultural heritage it's a reminder of who they are and whether. this is a suburb of the capital new delhi tibet so the refugees here since 1964 buttons
7:47 pm
here have been defined as migrants are not refugees because india hasn't signed up to the 1951 un convention on refugees so tibetans here have been able to access the indian welfare system so they become self-sufficient setting up ira businesses and looking for work independently but for some it's not enough. you know. when they're both struck many die and many. to end the epidemic. this is their story through the lens of a local to make us see people making sacrifices. this is what women want to see survive was a witness documentary on al-jazeera a policy imposed decades ago woman part but she said look to be goods and when you
7:48 pm
board is changing demographics across asia with far reaching consequences you're creating a pool of socially disadvantaged young men so you have the system where people at every level will be get being given money money to agree to our money to get other people to be the story. out there examines the politics of population control. and yes prime minister narendra modi appears to be headed for a landslide victory as vote counting in the biggest election on earth continues. i'm richelle carey this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. the ports and
7:49 pm
us media suggest washington may be considering a troop buildup in the gulf and a response to unspecified threats from iran. and in asia steps up security in the capital after violent protests against the results of last month's presidential election. and botswana listen hunting ban on elephants despite the animal being endangered elsewhere. it began with the biggest election on earth and prime minister narendra modi appears to be on course for a landslide victory early figures suggest a party has a lead in $300.00 out of $542.00 seats commented for the 1st time since vote counting began he is promising to build a strong and inclusive india has more. even over but at the headquarters the celebrations have begun. supporters are confident of victory could this be a 2nd consecutive government in the making the votes of hundreds of millions of
7:50 pm
indians are being collated and candidates and their agents are focusing on the district centers and each constituency. election commission says the turnout was the largest in indian election history more than 600000000 people voted out of 900000000 there were eligible to take part in the 6 week election the issues are very clear for some. people have voted for nationalism for the good of the country and for development work done by multi multi. people that. this election has been one of the most divisive in indian history i think. and then you start feeding them. so it seems that in the post independence india the 1st time security issue has become such
7:51 pm
a big issue. india has 29 states and 7 union territories and is the world's largest democracy there are over 8000 candidates all fighting for 543 seats in the lok sabha the incumbent prime minister narendra modi and his b j p party won the last election with a landslide victory on the 1st majority led government since 1900. repeating not in 2019 might be difficult but early exit polls suggest modi is heading to victory once again. joins us now from the capital in new delhi so what are the trends are emerging so far. yes indeed exciting times perhaps for those watching those election results come through again there are still early trends across the country and of course so what we're hearing from the election commission is that the b j p is doing very well it may have as many as over 295 seats we do know they've won 5 at the moment with the election commission
7:52 pm
website sort of jumped up at the moment or whether it's 5 seats out they have confirmed 5 but what it does say tell us is that he's certainly not one stop wonder so to speak in 2014 of course he was not a known quantity in 2019 we really do know his doctor surety is from cambridge university joins me now again here on out is it good have you with us you've seen the trends like i have and like the world is watching at the moment i mean generally what do you make of the i think the 1st thing to say is that this has been a personality referendum on modi which he has won resoundingly and secondly that this is not been an election on economic or social issues as the opposition have may have hoped but very much an election on nationalism and a strong india that a strong mood he seems to represent so there's an indorsement for a strong rejection of the new york nationalist agenda by by move and that is what
7:53 pm
the victory is all about indeed many did say that you know he's a one man show to a certain extent and the opposition tried to drag the argument and the discourse back to the issues unemployment communal fractions. g.s.t. taxes infrastructure investment where did it go wrong and i think it's fair to say that that did not start with the electorate. and i think the turning point in this election was the s. strikes against pakistan or the strikes in early in the winter and that changed the narrative to words as it were a nationalist agenda a strong india that doesn't brook opposition particularly from its hostile neighbor and in that sense i think the opposition made a catastrophic error in ceding the nationalist territory and nationalist discourse to more of the i tried to bring the question on unemployment which is real farmers distress which is real all of this seems to have been put aside by the electorate and they have sort of chosen a new not new national nationalist agenda and secondly they're also saying well we
7:54 pm
put faith in modi to actually resolve the problem of the economy indeed these are trends for the moment and of course if we look at those trends we see that the smaller state parties those that really cater for the small voice in indian society always have this phrase caste politics what's happened because certainly no to protest they've really just swept it away you're quite right if you go back to the ninety's when 1st tried to come into electoral politics in a big way it was stopped on the back off a very strong social coalition of lower caste politics and it was to be repeated again with an audacious coalition of very otherwise oppositional forces which put up with the although it cost but somehow that has not paid off what does it tell us a tells us something is happening to low cost politics and low cost identification and in a way the strongman narrative is is china as a form of identification with even those people who are likely to lose by more
7:55 pm
these economic policies at the moment we can certainly the congress party of gain maybe 4 or 5 seats compared to 2040 in the round about 51 at the moment in the trending where this is really leave the opposition parties because they all or they might well be licking their wounds right now yes i think the caller is a slightly different as a different animal not only because it is older but it's also a broader term. didn't than as the cost. but it represented a more liberal almost secular agenda which sort of what's wanted a kind of a new idea of india which is based on social justice and equality you know that hasn't worked it has it hasn't worked a much more majority tedder an agenda for hindu nationalism is what is coming to the fore. that professor from steve thank you very much for joining us just mr microphone richelle so much going on of course here in india nichols the trending continuing for the next few hours as we wait to see what those official confirmed
7:56 pm
results will be will show when the results when they'll be confirmed but of course when they will be coming straight back to you absolutely so harm on line for us and in delhi so thank you. now to the 2nd biggest democratic exercise in the world right now voting is underway for the european parliament between now and sunday people from 28 nations will choose to represent them the u.k. and the netherlands are the 1st countries to vote for it and taking part in the poll having failed to agree on a deal to leave the e.u. britain's prime minister theresa may is resisting calls to resign after her latest plan backfired maysoon pitch failed to win over both the opposition and to many and her own party and one of her senior cabinet ministers the leader of the house of commons and lead some resigned after saying she doesn't believe the new proposals can deliver bracks it the revised plan included a provision for a possible sex sex 2nd referendum pardon me for and joins us with the latest now from london so. if you have this question you might answer this question you might
7:57 pm
get a bonus right now how much longer history so may have. a. good question because you know a couple hours ago i was i was calling it a psycho drama with about a percentage 80000000 of the bricks at psychodrama it looked like she was going to have to go to morrow the days. after the european elections and. everybody seems to be suggesting that the head that the guy who's the head of this rank and file conservative backbench group called the 922 committee had said that he's going to go and see had similar morning and had said that she was going to offer a timetable for her resignation but that was 2 hours ago with since then downing street is apparently indicates that she might not offer her resignation so mara might instead try to rewrite the withdrawal agreement bill the the you just mentioned that it is current iteration has no way of passing she's that that what
7:58 pm
is now being scrapped this to the not going to table that so morrow but she much on bring back at her love in a couple of weeks time and it just goes on and on you know i think what we can say beyond any doubt at all is that she's going to go in the next few weeks are the bar the surrendering or ready or by being stabbed by about 80 different knives in the back. and then there will be a leadership contest that will take us up to the summer recess which will almost inevitably bring in a much more hard line conservative party leader and that would be a much more accurate reflection of where the conservative base is at the moment because by and large people once seen the ones. that what the don't want is has sort of squat squishy half outbreaks in the and they want something much more definite so that within set the set set the stage for a great big round in september about whether it's it does become a hard bret's it's or this election or whether the you can decide it can't do the
7:59 pm
process it's all in a defining regardless of rather regardless of what you feel about bricks and there's a sense of eggs sausage from so many people is that the same feeling in a year. yeah i mean they didn't you know they don't like they didn't like series i'm a they think they thought she was she didn't listen and she was aloof but then again you know who have it takes over might not even be worse for the book his favorite to take over is boris johnson the from the foreign secretary seems to change depending on things when we went when the wind changes direction used to be a very much for your a foil and now seems to be in some ways for donald trump and a very very hard line you're a skeptic. you know that they won't be able to deal with him if he becomes prime minister in if he continues thing as he does then it would be a push towards a no deal bricks when the when the extension of the european is off and runs out on
8:00 pm
the 31st of october but again he can't get those who parliament because parliament if you got a chance would vote it down and so you go round and round and round in circles circling the airport without being able to land the land the bricks it plain they need to be something really really definitive like a 2nd referendum or a general election to clear the completely because it's this whole thing is destroying ripping to shreds the u.k.'s reputation as a stable democracy ok aren't playing with the latest from london lawrence thank you as singer sherman diplomat is in tehran trying to encourage the iranians to separate the 2015 nuclear deal despite the u.s. pulling out of the main causes of current tensions with washington in while the us is apparently considering plans to send thousands of troops to the middle east to guard against what it says are potential threats from iran as news agencies are reporting tunnel trumps national security team will be briefed on thursday mike hanna has more from washing.
