a category 5 storm 2 weeks ago but at least 50 people were killed and those are the headlines more details on the website al-jazeera dot com but coming up next on al-jazeera it's inside story by for an hour. on counting the cost and the defacto leader has been ousted well his replacement in saudi arabia is any any better looking than struggle to get more for its boil plus the cost of adapting to. counting the cost. 2 weeks of protests in algeria show no signs of banding government is refusing calls to before and you election and i think break the stalemate and is there room for compromise this is inside story.
4:22 pm
welcome to the program. it's been more than 5 months since mass protests forced algeria's long serving president. to step down since then members of his former government have been resisting calls to as well. demonstrates how 30 weeks of they want former minister ahmed to give power to civilians and to release detained opposition leaders but the powerful military chief is standing firm. his people to support plans for a presidential election as soon as possible by the protesters want him and the ruling elite to go before and if. they have to ferry all those detained salah and his government prime minister nurdin better way
4:23 pm
everyone has to quit. if you want the protest movement to stop there's only one way and that is to yield to the algerian people this will be peaceful until the end it is the future of our children who will remain peaceful and. these politicians should be brought to justice and we should witness this the people will not stop until their demands are met as the elections it's up to the people to decide they want voice and they'll be no elections. and here's how the events unfolded in algeria tens of thousands of people took to the streets in february to deny their arses with a fair cause plans to seek a 5th presidential term. weeks of mass demonstrations eventually forced him to resign in april and he was replaced by interim president. but protesters say the real power lies with the army chief. the protesters then pressure the
4:24 pm
government to cancel presidential elections in july but the government of the military have been reluctant to offer further concessions general guy saleh is pushing for an early vote and wants the interim president to announce a december date. let's bring in our guests here in the surgery. and professor of political science and international relations of qatar university in algiers on skype a column hey of journalists of the middle east i also in algiers on the phone a research fellow at the school for advanced studies in the social sciences welcome to your use of why do protesters reject. push for elections to be held by the end of this year simply because the demands of the plotters have not been met yet obviously since the 22nd of february when the demonstrations started do mostly
4:25 pm
clear to them and some of them have been for instance opposed to the kind of. left who will do you the president of the constitutional council but did mostly still asking for it but we and his government to go up till now but we still the prime minister and. he will to the for the time being over and see the elections of jillian's i've been quoted in. full but we used to go he was. minister of interior he managed to get 6 almost 6000000 signatures for the bid for the cause. 50. people say they don't basically trust him they don't trust him because therefore he has to go there for years to go the models are also asking for an independent commission to supervise the elections for the time being
4:26 pm
in the. last few days ago that but with days in office number and the 2nd the 2nd thing is that the minister of justice the missiles are multi. promised algerians the commission with independent commission to sort of ideas elections will be established shortly and it will be completely independent so to me this is a move at least to appease the demonstration telling them that where the if they win elections take place it will be clean honest and transparent. the politics is. about compromise the amici if i'm a guy saddam was hoping to see lashes take place in july protester said no and i think the army caved in to those demands but now they are insisting that needs to be a constituency in a way out of the crisis knowledge of the other people saying at the same time know
4:27 pm
the truth of his something that could lead to deep political crisis in algeria. yes and you are pointing something very important which is the stubbornness not to start today we have a chief of staff who is the totally absurd of this idea are for going to. election no matter how it will be done and at the other side we have anger growing every friday because every day that passes mistakes and things people are arrested and new laws new people are appointed that are upsetting the. people on the streets yes. there's a need for compromise but today we don't see anywhere from the chief of staff from the region to any condition front and they could have been.
4:28 pm
successful to make people go back to their homes by releasing political prisoners out of freedom of expression prison prisoners so anyone can call ready them. if you want. he could have also 6 been very successful by. suggesting the removal of the prime minister appointing some non partisan. ministers or prime ministers and so on so there was no confusion made by that. since 6 months now and this is making. more and more angry but it also. shows their. progress without leadership works because without this leadership the regime and the government alter the chief cannot apply any
4:29 pm
pressure on people cannot by so does iraq resilience shown in the movie a man if the army chief insists on taking the path of elections by december and the opposition or the praja moccasin movement is saying no we're not going to go that way what are the options left for algeria. well there are actually several options but i think we should not think of the army are the people has to one type of have enough negotiate to get over they have been fit program you have sheaves and for the past 6 months and that has been the kind of time of negotiation that has been going on between the han the all the generals and the people of the district and from the had they spent 6 months has led to a situation that i'll just have never experienced before and which is the refusal
4:30 pm
of the people to play by the regions lose and that will be crucial to understand what kind of way out we can come to their homes they have refused to move to simply withdrew from fishel political life you know that before anjan we think well we know that's not going to have shame elections we know that bullshit probably related to begin again and that's not a business we'll just with feel that now to say no we won't come for them that's one of the cold demands we want both teams that are able to make days elections from parents and i come to the land that's not something that going to jump they also say before the wedding they be satisfied with the there is a traditional or ran scramble now to say no we want the proper cards with the king to come and that's also something very important they laugh but also quite indifferent algerian before as a victory 22 times a 2nd towards repression so i think it's not a conflict between us and between the army the conflict between the human and do
4:31 pm
a position popular and now this you know we are all confident about our kids with all the original in the midwest how to guides about she's going to war not because you can from a corporate occasion she said it's about the young on the point and from what they have and watched that and that was. the rebirth of a nation that is going on up to only a matter of have elections on notes and the most important such events i believe that will have a major. pact. we want to. make. use of because it's the most organized area the army found itself other very heart of this whole political debate now in algeria could it be that they are concerned that any way that is not within the constitution could drive as area to words
4:32 pm
a unchartered political territory and this is why they are rejecting the notion of a radical change without going to elections 1st of all obviously like you said the . the military is the most organized institution in the country it has always been the real power the whole deal in algeria let's not forget that the military all the algerian army was born before the before achieved its independence so and the military institution sees itself as the custodian of the nation i mean every single president of italy has been drawn from the middle east or had mutely support . the gates son has always insisted that the solution should be we do in the constitution and we should not be seen to get out of the constitution but obviously the situation we're in at the moment is not necessarily constitutional gates wants something actions before the end of the deal this will obviously depend on
4:33 pm
luck and luck is refusing it for the last 13. weeks also i think the heloc has grown stronger that they know it's a very very important. ok jand that it should not for the very important opportunity that you'd not be missed if they miss it they will be they will go back to how do used to live from the looks to t. and so it's very very. potent for the hillock to make sure. that the new system is established we talk about moving to a new republic or a 2nd republic whatever you want to call it but they know that if they miss this opportunity it will be a basic did the hope is lost i think but gates is making some compromise with the talk about gates and not as a person but as the institution it appears and so his he is making some compromises
4:34 pm
even though the compromise is not obvious i believe that called in for the creation of the establishment of the independent commission to supervise the elections and in particular somebody who has been fighting corruption over the last few weeks he put some very very important issues in the good for the cause leisure in jail he called he called on the jury in parliament to lift immunity on some other names so probably they will join. in the next 2 weeks or so so this is this is some somebody that the algerian trusts very much and he's promised that he would fight corruption and he also promised that the new established commission to supervise elections will ensure that elections will be fair and transparent and it will be independent and all the nice world that algerian wants to is so i see this.
4:35 pm
as a compromise from the military institutions as a way it's like an olive branch to the protesters but the protesters to my mind have the upper hand at the moment because they can disrupt everything at the end of the day they will not sign because every body who. who wants to become president needs 60000 signatures from different. maybe the protesters would not give. his problem for nobody will be to the constitutional requirements to be the one for elections the 2nd thing how the hell can they or a country to help when he or she ran her presidential campaign even if the street is not up to that so i think that the street has the upper hand of the stage at the michael's for a little concessions let's not forget that this. commission of
4:36 pm
dialogue headed by. former president of the algerian parliament despite what been the problems of the something something good came out of it because he said that the president is not necessarily against the idea of but do we know when writers told us last week that but with days in office are numbered so let's wait for the see what happens next a week or so i can i mean we do understand why she needs to be seen as standing firm on the case of let's get saddam but when you say in a speech to the people of either with me or betraying algeria isn't there some kind of message that would further untag own eyes hundreds or thousands of algeria so i would see the army for what inning them in a way or another to follow its guidance yes. i think. for its behavior or political in this building from. here is applying too
4:37 pm
much pressure on too many people and it is getting more and more. about. and also about the reaction of people you have seen in changing narratives in one or 2 in one on or 2 speeches so. we. really issue is that today. we have a misunderstanding from the side of the army that the. people who are now industry they don't want. to be the army and they don't want even to negotiate something. with the army apart from a regime change and also more political openness and more political freedom and the . amount they arrest of karim tabel one of the key figures in the problem across
4:38 pm
the movement how is it seen in algeria is it an indication that the army perhaps is not willing to accept this because the last statement he made or interview was a staunch was was lashing out basically at the time a guy thought well it's much much much more of chad has a way to fight in the doing of the protesters as before i mean getting something is not the 1st to have been i respect that it's own again it's not about when you talk to people or the country living or that it is not jr who are protecting as i said it's not about religion it's not about individuals it's about how which roads will lead to the negotiations and they may be treating the out of 3 ways to 2 scenarios well 1st business as usual use of the option of out of which i can even accept addictions to be held in the center to cancel their maybe now you know of the and
4:39 pm
that's something that's algerian has given some protests with a from the very beginning which means that they may organize their own traditions their own local councils to discuss the possibility of having the national constitution personally elected outside of any kind of this framework but it's too difficult because they don't have the. they don't have the money to the so the i mean it could be complicated if i think they are not. and i don't think it will be that and i know we've got more coverage so that you could build a good sheet of our back to the remains of the that we've had now. and of back effect this notion we do not have nucky pictured as had been told to have the army exported quite a country so everything is done to make the feel like it and moved and wanted to negotiate anyone but the army 1st. need to have the army to adelaide that could
4:40 pm
be negotiated that we've. reached between the army and the boat and into oblivion are all about genuine free and that's what will include a kind of give and take kind of. miscue around them so this is the only way to get and it does not mean control and people should be if you really think that this is we're talking about those future scenarios. the problem us movement has the upper hand however that it has been saying that basically this is a movement that is leaderless in a way or another isn't this have on its. own because how can you negotiate with people who don't seem to have a sense of clarity a chain of command about how to move forward what kind of transition would like to have for the future what kind of candidates we have to put into place for the presidential election who should be the member of the national unity government they are talking the talk but they don't seem to be willing to walk the walk.
4:41 pm
obviously they don't have obvious leaders simply because they said from the beginning that if we do of. dispersant could be both could be taught and could be what developed so they don't want to to have a proper leadership. organization people talking to each other will get in the organizing themselves official movements and so on and so forth but the most important thing is that the demands on. could yield a house of clear idea of what they want and they shared so many collected collecting sticks they just don't want anybody from what difficulties you exclusions of to get rid of but we and his government so many. that are clean who have not been associated with corruption and really like. for instance was mentioned as a potential person to the head of state a dimension that would be told for instance and the few names in the so it doesn't
4:42 pm
take a genius to figure out what there was the models want obviously what i say have the upper hand in terms of they can do stop it in the gov the numbers they would not go and give their signatures to potential candidates they would know they have leverage you know just the decision but to me again is the most important institution and it needs to make. the tell it is not a circulated move they want to make some sort of concessions to be seen that they go in with the likes of the establishment of a proper democracy do you have a sentiment that the project ocracy movement is losing the battle because we've seen that over the last few months particularly before the summer building momentum does that that does not seem to be the case anymore there are no longer hasn't in most of the cities across the country and they are very much confined now in
4:43 pm
basically one or 2 streets in the capital is years it is. a degree is. now during. during ramadan. even there were it decreases during that period because there were weather conditions were very very hard the critical mass that meant something politically was always achieved by we always have tens of thousands of people in the street at least in 234 picks it is across the country and also the slogans and the chants who are still very strong and very meaningful what we see now since this back to school since the beginning of september is a huge revive her out of the not going to use that they were
4:44 pm
a great thing. hundreds of thousands of people in the streets and for acting more than 45 cities in the country so which is pretty much signify see a point. do you feel like the army has managed to alt smot the protesters and that ultimately it could be what the army decides full the future of undo it. i think at any point to mention the room we were happy to act on what planet would you people want. to go get along now we will have to move well and what the. other direction than a plan of the credit with ben. bernanke turns around the end of
4:45 pm

a meeting between president hassan rouhani and the us president donald trump they way news have said that they are not willing to have this meeting until the united states removes all the sanctions that they've put in place since they withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal last year the kind of pressure economic pressure that they've put on iran since then is something that the iranians are calling economic war and they want that to stop before they will even consider coming back to the negotiating table to talk about the 2015 nuclear deal the position here is that the united states is not serious about any kind of dialogue since not only have they put sanctions on iran selling its oil on the international market but they've also sanctions highest levels of government here in place that they would have these discussions with so the position here is that this accusation being made here now is just another step away from any kind of dialogue between the 2 sides though so thanks very much. tens of thousands of people are marching in hong kong in defiance
