11:02 am
own security by using public transport you see that begin to prevent any attempt by the opposition to gather round the king entrances of the building to try to stop governing party m.p.'s from entering. this earlier this morning. shortly before. roy police were again deployed this is the 2nd time now in a week or so they would deploy it's they used water cannon. and forms of filings to move down the streets and. protest is the way from the small tent that they set up outside the building that was how things looked in the morning this is how things were last night. is a position. the government won't be given breaking its promise of and that.
11:03 am
after it failed to approve a system of. representation in elections street rallies against the government and it's. really becoming. it's an absolute must. reform which will give all your heart their ground and then people could whoever they want so no matter how harsh the government behaves whether they use the police or whatever we are going to. be very tough on our right to demonstrate is repeated that tactic of putting up tents outside parliament camps last week cleared by. right police. this is the 2nd it was something of a symbolic it stands to disrupt parliament to locate the streets around the
11:04 am
police or over here. sure that nobody attempts to looks back on the gates but the opposition basically saying that this parliament lacks legitimacy given that it reneged on a promise of electoral reform to move the judges governing party says no changes to the electoral system before 2020 would be forthcoming time is so fast you have to wait up to 2024 that's your message to the opposition this is the message to the opposition. the government argues protest is a just supporters of it's discredited royalist united national luqman. underestimate the strength of public t.v. . it's never happened before in georgia that so different political parties are united and we are i mean civil society and political parties are united to have proposed interactions is that because we know that we don't want
11:05 am
a one marriage rule we want to everyone to have day or wotan problem. the government hopes this protest movement will run out of ideas before it catches the imagination of the nation. and robyn we clearly had in your report the government saying just hold on take it a little bit more slowly because you can have proportional representation or electoral reform by 2024 what's the rush while the opposition party is in such a hurry to have the reform. well there have been a set of grievances against this government that have been articulated since the summer when in june we saw tens of thousands of people on the streets angry at the way the government as was being seen to be too lenient towards russia. we have this situation in this country where 20 percent of the territories occupied by
11:06 am
russia. territories are supported by russia and so feeling here that things a sliding away from democracy with the country's richest man an oligarch in control of the of the governing party seen by the opposition to be somehow working with 'd all too lenient towards russia the economic situation here is very difficult for ordinary people. john employments. at a very very high. currency depreciating foreign investment going down everybody in here that i speak to on the streets tells me that this is the situation that they've got to. and so the government made a concession it's ok well we serious about democratic reforms we were going to introduce this proportional representation would bring it forward so next year 2020
11:07 am
and then what happened the other week parliament voted and it was turned people feel cheated at least the opposition does and no civil society groups that we saw there in that report and that's why they want to continue to somehow keep up the pressure but it's difficult to see how more street protests are going to create change here unless something really gives more people can come out or some action or violence unfortunately that could tip things over otherwise what the government is saying is if you really have that popularity you can use this against us in elections next year and people will show their support you at the polling stations all right robin thanks for that robyn for us live in tbilisi now a powerful earthquake has hit albania the defense ministry reports that at least 6 people have died the 6.4 magnitude quake struck just north of the capital tehran or
11:08 am
a number of aftershocks have been felt in the authorities have called on people to stay outside we can now speak to bessie lick met his a journalist an editor of b i. can investigative reporting met well thanks for talking to us and give us an idea then of how extensive the damage is well the damage is quite extensive across central bay now a major emergency crews are still digging with their hands with heavy equipment in the village of nicholas to the epicenter where 2 building collapsed also in the town of the portal city of durham as there is another collapsed building and that they are still looking for survivors out there. and what sort of area has been most significantly affected is it a densely populated area or because it's some way out of the capital is it most sparsely populated it is a very densely populated area the triangle between the city of tourists and through
11:09 am
our nights most populated areas all they know where one 3rd of the population lives so the old this area has been affected and the earth quake it's been felt as far as the city of novice out all across the region of the balkans. means as sad to say but often in the airlie stages of a an earthquake the casualty figures are quite low and they steadily rise you expect the death toll to rise in this instance unfortunately with with the collapsed buildings and the work of the emergency crews still ongoing series that the casualty figures will rise but people are still hoping for miracles and the work is continuing to do is to save as many people as possible now it wasn't that long ago was it that albania had another earthquake small in this one it was in september it that suggests therefore that there is a level of preparedness amongst the authorities would you agree exactly i mean the
11:10 am
reaction of the emergency crews that we saw in the capital today but also in the coastal town of tourists was much harder much more preparedness compared to the earthquake in september so this may help in a sense aides to the rescue considering that this earthquake is more significant than the one in september and what sort of happened what happens to communities when there is a an earthquake like this and obviously this one is more powerful than the last one in september but what what the communities do do they gather together do they need the advice and stay out of buildings where do they go. well the 1st response hispanic and then everybody came out of the buildings and the cup it took your eye where it sits and people stayed outside spending the night. let's say the early morning or late nights because the quake it's 5 o'clock in inbar so they could escape the aftershocks and but also come together relieve

11:23 am
lebanese capital on motorcycles waving party flags chanting in support of their leadership they even drove by this protest site and what the anti political establishment protesters thought was another attempt to intimidate them there is tension in the streets the night before those supporters of. hezbollah attack this protest site what they did last night was attack the protest site in the southern city of tire which is a traditional stronghold of those 2 parties really that protest site has become a thorn in. in their side because this tent within their own ranks is quite aware so the situation has entered a very dangerous phase many consider what happened last night as a message from the ruling alliance that we're ready to force we're ready to resort to violence to protect our political power what the anti political establishment protesters have been demanding is early elections and an independent government
11:24 am
a nonpartisan government but the ruling coalition says no that is not going to happen yes we will accept a number of independents in the next in the next government but there needs to be political representation so the political deadlock is is dangerous a deeply divided the society and in the middle are the security forces the police the army they're walking a very fine line they're trying to to remain neutral because if they are seen as taking sides then historically we've seen that happen they disintegrate that and so this is the greatest fear right now lebanon entering this dangerous phase while this political deadlock continues. the chief executive of a scandal plagued australian bank is stepping down regulators say westpac broke and t. money laundering and counter-terror finance $23000000.00 times the most damaging allegations concern the bank's fadia to monitor customers who were
