2:03 am
le pen out empty, but to death is with biscuit. the game is not over since in 3 weeks time. we will have the legislative elections. ah, that is we know, or a distortion of the political trend and create a risk of a manual macro. concentrating all executive and legislative powers. john lew, melanie shown the far left presidential candidate, took just one percent less of the vote than the pen in the 1st round. he wants his party, france on bowed to with enough support in the legislative elections. the macro is forced to appoint him prime minister, woodyard boucher to all of you. i say, do not resign yourself. on the contrary, go candidly and completely into the action has on democracy. could once again give us the means to change direction. the war in ukraine and the rising cost of living were main concerns for french voters. both issues will likely dominate the start of
2:04 am
macro. on the 2nd, you're probably won't be much of a grace period for the president on the left. many voted for him, reluctant to raise the retirement, real, easy to hire and fire workers. i don't recall on the employment benefit approach. got the 1st thing just put in to get out there when it's actually about la joy's been alive from so natasha. it does seem a very design of when the full mac roll, but he has a lot of work ahead of him. but his supporters for the moment can breathe a sigh of relief. yes, i can breathe a sigh of relief because he has a one this election. i mean, that is clear in terms of the figures, but he does know as you say, that he's got many challenges ahead. he says he's going to be the president of all the french of all a france. but he has to try and convince the many people in france, you didn't vote for him, or who abstained,
2:05 am
or who only voted for him in order to block marine the pain the far right leader. that he really is a going to listen to some of their concerns because that has been a real worry for so many voters now. micro has acknowledged this. he did say, look, i know, lots of people only voted for me to block marine the pen. he says that he's now going to, oh, those voters a debt over the next 5 years that he'll pay, of course, more attention to some of the issues that they have very close to hardy. he says he's going to focus more on things like, for example, climate change, more on equality between men and women over the next 5 years. because these are some of the issues that some voters feel that he has simply ignored in his 1st term as president. they are hoping that that might change as we go forward. and of course, as we do go forward marine le pen of z and lost the election. but she has alluded to, looking forward to these legislative elections just a few months away. but what next for marine lapel, the politician herself in terms of leading the party
2:06 am
well, this was marina pens. 3rd attempt to become a the 1st fall, right? president of france, that is the 3rd time that she has failed, but she is putting a very positive, a spin on there. she's talking about a victory. she is saying that her policy is never achieved a search results before. and that is why, as you say, she is very much focused on these parliamentary lecture, a parliamentary elections in june. she hopes to have as many and peace as possible in the houses of parliament in the national poems, i should say, in france, in terms of her own career as a politician. for now, she doesn't seem to have any intention of stepping down. she certainly seems to want to continue as the leader of the party, but when she was a running during the campaign over the last few weeks and months, she did say a few times that in the future she would not run for the french presidency again. she will run a 4th time whether or not that will be true in 5 years time. we don't know,
2:07 am
she might feel. the momentum is on her side. for the moment, natasha butler for us in paris. thanks for the update. now they've been isolated, protest by far left groups against macros. victory ah, right, please moved in the news together to disperse demonstrators in paris by word. similar scenes of the north western city of n, macro centrist policies have attracted criticism from both far left and right wing groups. the britisher and german leaders also congratulated sir macro. earl of schultz says, france made a strong commitment to europe and he's pleased to be able to continue to corporate while boris johnson says, frances, one of the guys closest most important allies and looks forward to continuing to work together. let's bring in nicholas tanza. he's a guess professor of government and political theory as to sales bo, a selective research university joyce, when via skype from paris. mister tens,
2:08 am
a good have you with us on the program. can i just begin wave? how present, mike was talking about reaching out to those that didn't vote for him or abstained from this particular vote. how much work has he and his party got to do to turn that mindset around for the next candidate that will fill the shoes of a potential presidential election in 5 years time. because macro can't stand again . well 1st of all, i think one of the men difficult people for micro that is perfectly knows that you cannot, of course, run again because of the low under consideration basically. so it certainly will have to probably not designate but to choose a kind of person who could replace him next elections. and i think that we have also to focus on the 4th saying,
2:09 am
which is very important. if we consider the 1st round of the 1st presidential elections, we had basically more than 50 fard on time system, voters are on the far right. approximately 35 percent fall from the fall list about 2021 percent. so i think it's a huge number of people that we have to convince. i mean, the classical political party, your classical political forces from the left, all from the light, from the center, like my coal, to convince that there is absolutely no future for those on time system forces. i think that's one of the many challenges. in fact, as a prince, man, i am not very proud of the fact that we have still 42 percent of the voters who voted for the far right candidate. you see that the 1st charge, the 3rd time that he was that of far right candidate present in the 2nd round of
2:10 am
the presidential election. and i think we are all responsible even guilty for this kind of situation. all the political party is not on the my call should all the political parties in 35 years. i think that it will take time, i think, to reconvert in a way those waters. that's certainly one issue that has to be addressed. certainly by all the other parties as you say, but there are huge challenges. what you alluded to, which so to start really with the economy and the problems at many countries across europe and the rest of the world have faced the issues of employ him and have been focused on the distance friar. dis, disney dis, for disenfranchisement of the youth and climate change are all issues at mac, ron was accused of ignoring. so where does he begin in winning public support? back on what topics do you think he's going to tackle with 1st? i think we have different kinds of topics because i'm in the voters who are
2:11 am
opposing manual, my coal, and eventually to have chosen finally just to vote by him just to avoid. i mean, a presidency of my band that would have made fraud. perio basically have different kind of expectations the ones, but probably not the majority of them. all certainly basically aware of the true issues of climate change, but no of them. some of them are mostly looking up or choosing bullet, which is i think, a tremendous issue in fraud in more than 10 years or nose. a part of them certainly are more concerned for all the discriminations against some people, especially the migraines and even the french people who have muslim origins. and generally speaking, they are very concerned by human rights in general, and sometimes or sort of brutally of the police and just kind of issues. and of course you have a 3rd category of borders who are, who was could give
2:12 am
a last category concern by the questions of migrations. and finally, you have last category was a little bit concern about the question of foreign policy who are considering that macro is not tough enough against a dictatorship, especially country like russia and china. and we're asking for more support to grade more broad to human rights and freedom fighters micro lot better. i mean, a very famous. yeah. un general assembly speech in 2018. so you have different kind of expectations because it comes with it says the can i just jump in because we are just running out to time flatly. but i want to just reference what you've just said about present micro, dealing with ukraine and touching on ukraine has very fine balance in terms of dealing with foreign policy as well as domestic issues. so as we lead tools his
2:13 am
legislative elections in june, he will won't really, to get to the point 20 with the french public to address their concerns. because what he doesn't want is voter apathy. and another large majority of the french population abstaining from the vote in any form. yeah, really, i think that's a true challenge. and because also, i think you will, you mentioned rightly i seem to parliament reelection because you did decide and false wronged in the presidential election in a way. and for that, i think one of the issue is not only, i mean to maintain that the domain issues, but also the personality of the people micro suffered a great deal of the lack of leadership. with the exception of himself. if we consider it ahead of his own party, you don't have people with a very strong charisse not. i think that one of dominion issues that will bought
2:14 am
a lot for the elementary election must not be of course, forgotten or otherwise. i think we will have to balance of schools because you have a very different kind of voters from the right from the left. his partner is rather weak and one of the main issue is for him. certainly to gather many people. but if you guys are only the people from the right, all the people from the left, then it will have no support from the rest of the society. that's basically the fact that potential science is politically polarized and buried from the divided. ok, well i think that's one of the many to which is, but he just thought for him and said he is not easy at all very complicated scenarios for the french people to work out for the nicholas tends to, thanks so much for joining us in paris. thank still had it on al jazeera, unprecedented flood sy, closing drought, southern africa,
2:15 am
struggles to keep pace with a changing climate. ah hello there. let's look to north america. and much of the weather action has been focused on that major winter storm swooping its way across the northern plains of the u. s. and central canada. what by monday, you can see that's pushing its way further east, across the great lakes, taking heavy snow and blizzards to easton areas of canada. now behind that it does dry up. we're going to the temperatures dipped down slightly, but there is still a lot of wants to be found in the southwest. we've got those critical fire warnings remaining here in places like new mexico. we are still going to see a lot of warmth in places in california. like los angeles, the temperature, touching up into the early thirties, now we're going to see a cool down, however, across the great lakes and places like chicago as that system pushes its way

2:19 am
and organization. so civil society are going into the 3 selling people for 12. so the very high turn out is one of the key issues in the selection in 2018. there was a 53 percent walters coming out. now it's very close to 70 percent is we expect that the rubber to go up real form of government which other left in parties. on the other hand, yanna sasha will staying a position. he's a political veteran, he's. he will be waiting for his next chance. he was prime minister for 3 times, and he couldn't do it the 4th time. so we are expecting that the parliament will have less parties. it would be easier for, rather go up to form a government. now ukraine's president of miss lensky has called for unity and resilience during an address marking easter sunday. and the orthodox christian
