12:02 pm
have been taken to hospital and bit and an investigation into the cause is underway will be bring you more on that as we get now. germany is federal. parliament is right now. voting to elect a new chancellor. social democrat, ala schultz is set to replace anglo merkel who's leaving office after 16 years. schoultz and his cabinet of 16 are expected to be sworn in in a few hours after this particular vote in parliament. the incoming coalition government has promised to step up efforts against climate change and the coven 19 pandemic. well, it's been a dominant cain. he joins us from berlin, where we, as we can see parliament is still voting dominic, as we've been saying, a really busy ceremonial morning for schultz can you talk us through what we've been seeing and also what's planned. first thing we saw this morning in parliament was a standing ovation for the outgoing chancellor, angular medical who's been in charge of the government of this country for 16 years . well, very soon now, she will no longer be in charge of the government because the constitution will
12:03 pm
have been adhered to a positive vote to replace her as chancellor with olaf shots, leader of the social democrats in parliament. and therefore, now the man who is going to be charged with governing this country for the next 4 years, the votes will be taking place imminently. once he has achieved the number of votes, it's required, he then replaces angle america. he will then go on to the president's palace as it were, the schlossberg view, which is very close to parliament and receive the seals of office as it were, as will then his cabinet colleagues, those are the people from the other parties in this traffic light coalition, of red for the social democrats, yellow for the free democrats, also known as the liberals in german and the greens, of course, and those parties will, they, themselves, will be controlling important ministries. so the liberals will be in charge of the finance ministry, amongst other ministries. the greens will clearly will take control of the
12:04 pm
environment, ministry, but also the foreign ministry. but all of that is still ahead of us over the course of the next few hours. but in the course of the next few minutes, mr. shots will be barring some very unforeseen consequences. he will be elected chancellor in parliament and then can start to implement all those policies that he is keen to start implementing and make as they were saying earlier, a number of individuals here taking ministerial offers as well for the very 1st time. so what sort of shifts should germans and potentially the rest of the wow be looking for the key plank of policy as it were, that mister schultz wants to see, brought in, implemented involves social justice. but particularly from his perspective, raising the minimum wage that was a very key part of his agenda, meaning that everybody in the lowest paid jobs in society will now get more money
12:05 pm
in their pay packet. that's the 1st thing to say. then from the other parties, perspectives, the greens will, they clearly wanted to see a change, a much more radical agenda to fight to combat climate change. they have forced the hand of mr. shots, they have the environment ministry, they have the economy ministry, which is being, as it were, strengthened and given more portfolio over climate change. and they get foreign policy. they get the foreign ministry. but their leader is a lady who has no ministerial experience whatsoever. and alina bell, bach, 40 years old, and now charged with directing the foreign policy of europe's most important economy. and she's already made some waves of what she said about russia and about china. now she's in charge of diplomacy, which will be a change from what she has done in the course of the electoral campaign. but that still ahead of us for that for now. all eyes on parliament and that vote taking place. indeed at dominic pain there with all the latest forests from valen. thanks

12:09 pm
did tough economic sanctions would follow. i will look in the i and tell you, as president biden looked, president putin in the i and told him today that things we did not do in 2014. we are prepared to do now. that reference is to the russian annexation of crimea from ukraine. that prompted us sanctions by then also told putin the u. s. was prepared to assessors militarily. we would provide additional defensive material to the ukrainians above and beyond that, which we are already provided. and we would fortify our nato allies on the eastern flank for its part. russia is seeking assurances from the west that ukraine will not become a member of the north atlantic treaty organization, something the ukrainians have pursued for years. the u. s. national security advisor reiterated ukraine can associate with whom ever it wants. when analyst believes joining nato is unrealistic,
12:10 pm
it ought to be clearer to them. and we're not coming to the rescue. so you're gonna have to live next russia without a u. s. security guarantee. there were also questions about the controversial nord stream to pipeline which runs from germany to russia and whether it could be used as leverage and discussions over ukraine. the white house says it will pressure the german government to stop it. if russia invades the biden administration, will continue to work with it's european partners, promising a coordinated response, should russia ignore their warnings? president biden will also speak with ukraine's president lensky on thursday. kimberly, how can al jazeera the white house? malaysia's former prime minister, not jabrisa remains defiant, often appeals court upheld his guilty verdict in a corruption case. he wanted the judge to throw out his 12 year prison sentence and $15000000.00. fine. not even pleaded not guilty to dozens of charges tied to his
12:11 pm
involvement in a multi $1000000000.00 state fund scheme. he was voted out of office back in 2018 after those corruption allegations. i am very, very disappointed with that because a drug focus on house nationally, chris. and as you know, during my tenure as prime minister, as just an example of the total assets of the country under my watch grew from $800000000.00 to $2.00 trillion, 2 trillion ringing. oh, therefore, i created a lot of wealth with a country hawthorne's larry has more now, from puerto jaya in malaysia, his lawyers have said they will be filing an appeal to the federal court. that's the highest court in the land and pending that appeal process. his lawyers have
12:12 pm
also asked for and been granted a stay on the sentence. that means no jabrisa will not have to go to prison. he will not have to pay his fine immediately while the appeals process is being dealt with. and this is something that can take years now in practical terms, it also means that he will be free and out on bail just as he is. now. there are really 2 camps. i mean, there are many people who believe that no job is guilty. if you remember, it was the anger over corruption allegations surrounding one m d b, the state investment fund that caused no chips. party, the united malays national organization and its allies to lose a general election in 2018. and that was a historic defeat. it was the 1st time the coalition, known as bars on national, had lost a general election and was no longer in power. this was the 1st time since malaysia gain independence in 1957. and the court of appeals decision on wednesday will be event, vindication for many anti corruption activists and opposition. politicians who've

12:18 pm
sort of the ammunition of the arm of the lord be used to bidding those perpetrators to book that those things happen so that this kind of brutality is not witnessed again. but for his broader family. it's a very close knit family. there were 6 siblings and all. incidentally, 3 of the 3 brothers are all walked in park, his son, and even his mom who is very much a broken lady, reached out when we came in here earlier. or she said she had brought up her 6 children. literally as a single mom, after her husband passed away for 31 long years. and she is heartbroken to see that her youngest son came to such a tragic end. so it's very much a family broker and trying to come to grips with this scale of violence that they've seen. and all they can hope for is that they find out exactly what went down last friday. and that those who wore behind it for whatever reasons that drove
12:19 pm
them this cannot be justified, but for whatever that they are brought to book and punished. while manella was looking at some of the numbers as well, and it seems that dozens of people have been killed and attacks around blasphemy allegations and pakistan over the last few decades. has people there been held to account? is it likely, especially given the arrests that we're seeing now that that will happen in this case? i believe in terms of comparisons to previous incidents. the fact that this has taken a sort of an international awareness and flavor, given that it is obviously a foreign national that was involved. it's really made big headlines. and there is a hope that even if you look at some of the pleasures made by the pakistan leadership crime in the same ron con, seeing that he hopes that never in his life time will something similar happen.
12:20 pm
again, those are a pretty, a sort of big words. and one would expect, particularly for the family here, that they are actually able to put their where to be her behind those words and give it sort of credence. because are given the fact that this has happened, similar things have happened before. no one wants to has, you know, see it happen ever again to any one, no matter where they're from. indeed, michelle fernandez, they're outside the families home in sri lanka. thank you so much, mina. well, staying in sri lanka and a salvage company has been contracted to remove a chemical ship that caught fire off the coast there. in may. the end, the express pearl tanker caused environmental damage after it's filled hundreds of tons of hazardous chemicals and plastic into the ocean. dead marine life, including turtles and whales washed up on the beach as their sri. lankan authorities said it was the nations at west marine disaster. now moving on and

12:25 pm
i saw the largest number of public related deaths in south korea since the onset of the pandemic. i think it's too early to say what the true virulence of the army con variance is throughout the whole spectrum of disease. although we do suspect that it is much more transmissible than the delta variant. and even in korea, we are seeing cases of breakthrough infection. our 1st 2 cases had been fully vaccinated with during the vaccine. and then they had got the chronic infection. i was traveling in africa and so the army, cranberry and is, is in the community already in korea. and my biggest concern is that if we see huge increases in cases that inevitably always leads to increase in hospitalizations. even if the disease is last severe
