8:00 am
trying to deal with people who left behind. ah ah, armenians vote and stop election cold by prime minister, nicole passion the and then been growing anger after the defeat in the war against as a by john. ah . hello, i'm darn jordan. this is sarah ly, from dell are also coming up the celebrations in iran, not landslide, when abraham bracy giving conservatives full control for the 1st time,
8:01 am
the brazilians raise their voices against president both scenarios. handling of the pandemic that's now killed half a 1000000 people under reunion for just a few minutes. separated mexican families of the us border meet at an annual event . ah, welcome to the program. the voting is on the way in armenia is snap parliamentary election. the prime minister nicole passionate and was forced to call an early vote following protests over the country's defeat and a war with as by john last year. analysts protecting a tight race ruby challenges, joins us live now from the armenian capital year of unruly. so how important is this election for armenia because it looks set to decide the country's future offer it's war without the by john? yeah, i mean, the hope amongst many people is that this is going to confer on the victor some
8:02 am
degree of electoral legitimacy and a 5 year period of stability, at least on paper in armenian politics, in which the winning candidates can sit down and really start to tackle the country's long and daunting list of challenges. now they stretch roman eminence, best security issue, following the aftermath of the war last year, that all media loss humiliatingly. but that's also economic problems, development problems, refugee problems, prisoner war problems, whether or not any candidates can get grips of those. i think that's a, that's a difficult ones. ross, a political scientist we've been speaking to say, it's not much chance of athens at any candidate that wins this election is going to be on popular within half a year. there are also nerves, i think, growing because of the tightness of this race. and because of the invective, the,
8:03 am
both of the front running candidates have used that there might be some unrest and they have classes on the streets. what it boils down say will though there is a long list of 262526 parties blocks, etc. it boils down to essentially a 2 horse race and that is between nichol passion and the current prime minister and robert cherry and a former presidents in the eyes of the electorate. this is a previously popular reformist, the prime minister against someone from the old god who to many is tainted by the corruption scandals of the past. and i think a lot of people here are not much infused by either of these 2 men, particularly families who might have lost a brother, a son or a father in the recent fighting, who are still deeply in a state of trauma and loss. and think that both of these 2 candidates bear,
8:04 am
some responsibility for what has happened and armenia over the last, well, 5 and 10 years or so, leading up to that devastating war last year. yeah, rory and russia play peacemaker in the latest conflict. how does moscow then fit into this election? yeah, this isn't an interesting question. i think a lot of people assume that because russia is that the former master of the what was the, that the, the, so the space and all media is a former soviet country that russia is going to be putting the strings in the background here. and russia certainly does have interests in armenia when the war was going on. last year. analysts were looking at this and saying that the way this is planning out was actually bad news for moscow. and that moscow was being out played by turkey as it trying to spot actually most giving it up in
8:05 am
a fairly decent position that has peacekeepers on the ground in and around. no going to care about it is certainly kept both as a by john and armenia within a tolerable sphere influence from moscow perspective. so we're not really seeing as we have to unsafe and ukraine, the kind of black operations or, or influence that moscow is trying to do in the background or that data to in, to, to make sure that this election goes its way. and perhaps that's because i think moscow would be happy with either contrary and or passion the end of india. and when he came to power 3 years ago on that waivers popular protest was at the time experiencing some quite empty moscow lines. but the 3 years of power he's had since then, those have pretty much dropped away. so i think for moscow's perspective, armenia, more or less is going to stay in its fear of influence,
8:06 am
or at least tolerably so. and therefore it's not particularly bothered. which way this election goes? alright, i really challenge live 1st day in the armenian capital, van rory, thank you. the roms, conservatives are sent to consolidate their group on power off to hotline abraham racy was declared winner of friday's presidential election. turned out was the lowest in the history of the nomic republic, underscoring the challenges that lie ahead than the former chief justice takes power in august. i said, beg report from tara, everyone in iran knew the outcome with no real prominent opposition. polls predicted conservative cleric ibrahim, right you see would when and when he did in a landslide victory, his closest opponent receiving 14000000 few votes, right? if he 1st gained prominence amongst the religious faithful. when he was appointed as custodian over the shrine in the city of mush at frequented by millions of
8:07 am
pilgrims a year, he was praised for removing cropped officials from the shrines administration and serving pilgrims. and i are to la considered to be a hide religious authority and she slammed his religious title hold weight among the countries religious. conservative base, right? if he had failed in his bid to win the presidency in 2017, he lost by 8000000 volts. to hassan ronnie during that campaign, he was criticized for his pastoral as a judge on election day. once again, our people announced their decision and rejected those who in 38 years didn't know anything but execution and imprisonment as a young man, he was part of a committee that oversaw math executions in 1988. an audio recording was leaked during the 2017 election where i had to le montessori, condemned gracie and others on the committee for the role in the executions general
8:08 am
. yeah, i think the worst crime against the atlantic republic and that history will condemn us for has been committed by you and your name will go in history as a criminal, and i miss the international have said raised he should be investigated for crimes against humanity as the judicial chief, he's seen as tacking corruption, a fundamental concern for many iranians. his appointment by the supreme needed to key roles has raised other questions, some feel his presidency, setting the stage for him to become the next supreme leader. but he still has to serve as president and make life better for many iranians supposed to shut down right now. i'd like to offer my gratitude to the very dear, honorable and vigilant people. i thank the almighty god for the dear people's trust in the serving seminary students. i hope i can respond well to the people's confidence votes unkindness. during my turn. he's surrounded by what many consider to be hard line, as opposed to the 2015 nuclear deal, right? he says he supported mom be about a young man study. and again,
8:09 am
we are committed to the jcp away, as it was approved by ayatollah how many, but you can't implemented a strong governments should be in power to be able to implement. but unlike president has general harmony and the moderates who saw the dia, that's a foundation for broader discussions and relations with the west, raphael, his camp, see it as a ceiling with deep mistrust of the united states. but his real test will be how he serves as president, and what change can bring to the country. as i said, big jazz era, there are. well, the us, as iranians were denied a free unfair vote in the presidential election, but it pledged to continue negotiations to save the 2015 nuclear deal. kristen salumi has more. this has to be a concern for the united states. they're striving to get a renewed iran deal in place before he takes office in august. we know another meeting is scheduled to happen in vienna on sunday. the us, of course, has not been directly engaged with iran in these talks instead,
8:10 am
leaving that to their counterparts in the deal, but by joe biden. the president of the u. s. is very eager to make progress on this front and as far as easy as concerned on the one hand, this man is a hard liner. that's a concern for the united states. amnesty international has linked him to death squads in the 1900 eighty's that oversaw the killing of thousands extradition extra judicially of political prisoners. and as the head of the judiciary, racy over saw other human rights abuses. according to amnesty international, including allowing government officials and security forces immunity and their crackdown on protesters and dissidence and so forth. so this makes right, you see actually the 1st iranian president sworn into office under us sanctions and 2019 when he took over as the head of the judiciary, the united states level,
8:11 am
personal sanctions against him. so that is a complicating factor in the relationship here. and on the other hand, he has also expressed support for getting the iran deal done. so there could be some impetus to move things forward now that he has been sworn. and the challenge for the united states is that president biden wants to take the iran deal even farther and include ron's ballistic missile program. that was never going to be an easy agreement to come by. this may make it even harder. most the analyst expected a pivot from iran, away from the west, even furthermore, towards russia and china. now that he's in power anti government protest as have taken to the streets of brazil as the number of deaths from corona virus, past half a 1000000, opponents blame the world's 2nd deadliest outbreak on the president's response. monica, you know, i can report somebody additional now who's rarely depressed dozens
8:12 am
of cities in brazil to denounce president jadem ball. so not his handling of the pandemic marching through the streets of rio diginero to the sound of drum beat. the angela chant of indigenous try in the capital brazilian. this is called trouble, so not as impeachment, accusing him still down, playing the cove in 1910 demik. despite brazil's death toll being the 2nd largest in the world, when the protest began and real, the corona virus had already killed more than 490000 brazilians. as the day were on brazil reached the tragic milestone of half a 1000000 dead. this governments responsible for genocide, it delayed the vaccination roll out. we cannot continue to be governed by a president who doesn't care about brazilian lives just last week both. so now was fine for leading a motor bike rally. and so without wearing a mask,
8:13 am
he's already on the campaign trail for next year's presidential election and continues to promote hydroxy cora wine as the cure for the corona virus. i'm 65 years old, was infected by cooper 19 and took druck the clerk. when the next day i was cured. so not his opponents had been reluctant to take to the streets against him, arguing that people should stay home in the midst of a panoramic. now they said risk you to remain quiet as if you were here to fight for our lives. the virus is less deadly that our president we want him out. now this is happening while the senate committee is still investigating the government handling of the ban. demik sen, doctors and scientists say this effect, the government has tried to hurt immunity by infectious dis, suspicion that every scientist in brazil now has. and the president of brazil is
8:14 am
doing everything he came to convince us the best strategy since the beginning. when he goes have a that and says dad immunization produces a protection that is smaller than if you have the disease which is not true. meanwhile, an average 2000 brazilians have been dying every day. and many fear that at this rate, for the me soon surpass united states as the country with the world's largest covered 1900 death toll monetary. and i guess i'll just 0, we're diginero from personal break here. and i'll just say when we come back, rival protests in peru by supporters of 2 presidential candidates. 11 election results up hell. the other is demanding a recount. displaced and relying on today the plot of refugees from ethiopia to dry region living in neighboring for that more on the state. ah
