2:02 pm
a day of action people still taking to the streets and then being arrested a couple of questions for you what happens then and is this going to be the government strategy going forward. yes i think the security services have had a different strategy a different states overall what's actually been applied so far is something called section 1041 full force the penal code which stops assembly of more than 4 people or stops the assembly of people in designated areas so using the law the police across the country have either stopped halted or demonstrations what they did in delhi was they allowed the demonstrators to get to direct for the allow them to go through the barriers in single file and no sooner had they got through those barriers that they were all loaded up on 2 coaches arrested there and then shipped out no we thought they were going to begin to be taken to police stations across
2:03 pm
the city but no the security services most probably with the regional government as well decided that what they were going to do was take these coaches to defer this most point of the cities of border and leave these people let them get off the coach and dump them there basically add to that no internet connection which you just mentioned no media and the phone lines being cut as well these individuals who are party civil society the politicians students couldn't connect with each other couldn't communicate with each other so they didn't know what the next stage would be what the police have done is they've done that in several locations across the capital that's been replicated across the country. well students of course have been at the frontline of these protests against this new citizenship law and there have been often violent confrontations with place on university campuses sabina stressed that brings us this report from one of those

2:08 pm
is adopted by many research gentleman from new york over several hours the democrats' repeated arguments that have now become very familiar the president needs to be held to account many speaker the house of representatives has now considered 2 articles of impeachment against president trump the 1st article charges that the president used his public office to coerce a foreign government into attacking his political rival. the 2nd article charges that the president took extreme in unprecedented steps to obstruct our investigation into his kind of taken together the 2 articles charge that president trump placed his private political interests above our national security above our elections and above our system of checks and balances what we are discussing today is the established fact that the president violated the constitution is a matter of fact that the president is an ongoing threat to our national security
2:09 pm
and the integrity of our elections the basis of our democracy a central charge against the president is that he was demanding the ukrainian government announce an investigation into joe biden and his son hunter in return for an official white house visit to the tree a over the republicans argue that the democrats have failed conclusively to prove that case they say president trump was right to be concerned about corruption in ukraine in addition they argue that home to biden's position on the board of a ukrainian energy company while his father was taking the lead in ukrainian policy as a vice president does warrant further examination and they argue that impeachment is simply the attempt to overturn the results of a 2016 election we on the republican side have no problem taking our case to the majority and to the people of this country because they elected donald trump and it is a matter for the voters not this not in this way not in the way this is being done it is trampled everything this house believes in our democrat colleagues have

citizens and nationals equally regardless of race religion increased. to lebanon where the party of caretaker prime minister saad hariri is refusing to nominate any other candidate to be his successor the president's holding former consultations with politicians to decide the next leader or i resigned after weeks of anti-government demonstrations people have been protesting against corruption and sectarian politicians dominating the government tony at least. explains what the announcement might mean for those consultations. i'm at the presidential palace and each block is coming along to make an announcement of what they are doing or what they're not doing and as you've got quite rightly said the major sunny blocks are not nominating anybody they've left including mr hariri the outgoing prime minister is throwing into question what the motives are is the political maneuvering going on behind the scenes is also a feeling that these blocks want to allow the situation on the streets to diffuse
2:22 pm
for the tension levels to go down and then to come together to make a political situation but it's also very interesting to know that the pro hezbollah alliance putting forward a can do that by the name of mr who was a former education minister and he's a professor at the american universe of beirut but it's interesting to know that while he was education minister his prime minister was mr. was mr mccarthy but mr mccarthy's sunny block has not voted for him either it shows you the depth of confusion so there's only one of the candidate being put forward by some of the smaller groups and he is probably going not going to get the sufficient number of votes to get any further his name is mr noah salam and hezbollah already said that he's a u.s. sponsored candidate so at the moment it's very confusing where we go from here it's a similar story in iraq where the deadline for the nomination of the new prime
2:23 pm
minister a new subtle abdul mahdi stepped down from the polls last month after weeks of violent protests in which more than 400 people were killed in the demonstrations have continued people say they want a complete overhaul of the political system they're angry about widespread corruption high unemployment and poor public services. now a largely ceremonial but significant event is about to happen in london when the british more america lines the new government's agenda these are pictures of queen elizabeth the 2nd making her way from buckingham palace to the holmes's of parliament queen's speech will set out conservative prime minister boris johnson's plans for the u.k.'s post breaks it future will live night in the fark a who's in westminster why their needs so i talk us through what we can expect. well it's a day rich in political pageantry as you mention there the queen has made the journey has now arrived at the palace of westminster a short while ago we saw the union flag lowered the royal standard raised over the
2:24 pm
house she will then go to what's known as the road to being room before making her way eventually to the house of lords where she will deliver the so-called queen's speech setting forth the government's legislative agenda for the coming year but before all of that m.p.'s in the house of commons many of them who arrived here only a couple of days ago having been newly elected to that post will be led by the chief usher known as the black rod rhodes who carries a black stuff through to the upper house but the door will be slammed in front of the back roads face she will then have to bang on the door 3 times before being allowed in all of that to symbolize the independence of parliament from the sulpher and a tradition that dates back hundreds of years the time of the civil war and. king charles the 1st suit as you know lost his head for defying the will of parliament for a different scene of course when it comes to politics this day and age although that's given the wrangling ahead of the election is somewhat debatable boris johnson
2:25 pm
metaphorically wanted to keep pace had to stay with course for a new united kingdom he knows that he is safe in the knowledge of having a big majority and at the heart of these queen's speech will be his promise to deliver on breaks it repeatedly was a key month for the conservative party throughout the election but he also needs to prove he could deliver on other promises we're talking about massive spending for the country's revered national health service and also a much needed cash injection for huge swathes of the north of england the voted overwhelmingly this time to switch allegiances from the labor party many of these constituencies it being the long term labor voting heartland of the country switching their allegiances this time to boris johnson's a so most certainly. the government needs to prove that they are up to all of the promises that they have made going forward and me by imagine the scottish s.n.p. leader scottish national party leader nicholas sturgeon will also be watching with
