12:01 am
this is al jazeera ah hello i mariam demising. welcome to the news, our ly from london coming up in the next 60 minutes post clothes in columbia's presidential election. vote is decide between a former left when gorilla fighter, the man who calls himself the king of tic toc emanuel micron sentries delights, gets the most seats in france. his parliamentary elections, but fails to secure an outright majority. oh, can easy and protest his voice that discontent over the president's plans for a new constitution. accusing chi side of a power grab ah, employees at maryland, apple stall, vote to unionize the latest in a string of similar actions taken by workers across the technology sector. and the
12:02 am
ally mark decision from swimming world governing body, restricting transgender athletes from participating in elite women's competitions. ah, hello and welcome to the program. we begin in columbia, where polls have now closed the most fiercely contested presidential run off in recent memory. it's being held off to candidates, failed to secure, at least 50 percent of the vote in the 1st round of the election last month. colombians choosing between 2 vastly different candidates. gustavo, petro and rodolfo hernandez, both promising change, but very different credentials. gustavo petro is a former left wing, guerrilla fighter, and the former mayor of bol guitar. he is promising reforms to tackle inequality
12:03 am
and to protect the environment. victory for him would swing to the left in columbia in politics and usher in the country's 1st left wing lida, his opponent, construction magnate, rudolph hernandez, a political outsider whose hon is social media to energize his campaign. he's promising to drain the swamp of corrupt politicians, echoing the words of for me, you as president donald trump, lest thou speak to, to raise a bow, is it live for us in bogota. and gustavo petro was the mayor of bogota, and he would potentially be the 1st leftist leader in columbia's modern history. how much support does he have there? while i'm here at the polling station and this station has just closed, we saw our people celebrating, celebrating, what they say is a democratic process that went at least here without major incident with pebble bed, that it was a young rebels. he joined
12:04 am
a left wing rebel roving his youth. he had then become an economist, a congressman than the mayor of bogo and a seasoned politician. this is his 3rd precedential burden in his lifetime and of support. we've been talking to all sorts of people here in beaudin, while many believe that he's the man to carry out the reforms that columbia desperately needs others are afraid about what could happen if he make it to, to power. we're here with iraqi and leap. i think after he's our political analyst, he has, he's here with us to analyze what been happening. do you think that will double paid that all? is the man at that. you know, he's ready to carry out the reforms that he's been promising is columbia ready to have a left wing president thought to carry out the, the reforms that this country desperately needs relating. so this is the 1st time the dog left to william candidate who is so close to when a presidential election in columbia. it could be
12:05 am
a historical mom and actually be girls has, you know, and the 20th century i, columbia, and left when parties were persecuted and actually manually to chance were, are killed in the process or whoever i wanted to run or in politics outside of that or the child bodies was either exterminated or didn't have any actual chance to be elected in these time with gustavo through it could be the 1st time that someone from our live room party is selected into a conscious i think having a good number of congress members selected and supporting gustavo teresa, good her sighing for him to probably been elected today, we'll see what happens. many of the campaign promises has made, like, for example, are controlling the expectation of oil and gas ending fracking. rethinking the war on drugs are in this country are controversial. i mean, do you think he will be capable of carry out those type of reform? it is very difficult because dick turned the presidential turn last only 4 years.
12:06 am
it is difficult to implement all of those policies in only 4 years, but he could start the process actually are and or promises that he has made during the campaign are very difficult to achieve too. because they take a lot of time, day him in play. ah, to reform several things are. so we'll see if he is capable of doing that. especially in terms of controlling garzon oil. all of that is probably the mas greedy call him probably the most controversial of his arm proposals. well, one of the things we have heard to day and throughout his campaign is a possibility of frog. or he says that in some areas there's been some irregularities. is it possible for some type of fraud for irregularities to happen in this process? how transparent our color are elections in this country. i would say the selection is very transparent. i dare electoral process and are in good many or as several
12:07 am
are measures ensuring that the, the election process is fair for everyone involved. so i think it's a very fair and every one can be confident that the electoral process is, is fair to everyone. remember that on the go. so petro 1st joined him, 19 gorilla group. that was created because of i know our fraud during our presidential election. so that's part of the narrative that he is being, are talking, you know, during his campaigns. but to refer this electron process is very for several, hundreds of thousands of people are involved in that process. so it is very difficult to carry out the fraud. thank you very much. well, as the counting process continues right here, where we are, there's lot of expectation, anxiety to day results. we're going to have, we're going to see either lots of people celebrated, especially i'm longer gustavo, pedro supporters. but also lots of people concerned. this is just an example of how
12:08 am
polarized this country currently is. thank you very much. to raise a bow in bogota, that's now head to become manga alexandra p a. t joins us. and this is the place that is really a dog hernandez, heartland, isn't it? he does enjoy a great deal of support there. but it was still very surprising when he came in 2nd place in the 1st round of this presidential election, people were not expecting that. gustavo petro be going up against her door fernandez. how did he manage to do it after that, the man, there's no doubt that this has been the biggest surprise in this election. he managed to do so through a very unusual campaign, essentially basing all of his campaigning on social networks in particular on tick tock. he calls himself the king of victor, instagram on facebook,
12:09 am
and so on and tweet there, obviously. and he managed to essentially create an entire campaign around one single issue that of fighting corruption, of getting rid of corrupt politicians in the capital bull with that and across the country. and somehow that worked, given the fact that so many people here in columbia are tired of this stuff to school or prior to of the political establishment. so just a little over a month ago, he was seen as an oddball outsider in many ways. and nobody would have imagined that now he would have gotten this close to possibly winning this election in columbia today. and that's because a lot of the traditional conservative voters have decided to go or have announced that they will vote for him. given the fact that they fear the possible arrival at
12:10 am
of the left east the in the country. but let me show you here just for a 2nd. the counting that is the under way. as you can see that they're counting the votes. they're going to write it down on that 1st document. this information will be sent to the electoral outdoors these here. and based on that, we will get what is called here as a quick count to which in roughly one to 2 hours will tell us most likely who the winner is if instead, and those numbers are too close to call right now, 12 percent difference then the most likely it could take days to get an answer on who the next president of columbia will be as that as it was saying, this has been very polarizing a very divisive country, a elector. sorry. and, and also won that for the 1st time. doesn't see any traditional candidate running
12:11 am
group for the top for a job. 2 candidates that are promising change in a very different way. on one side, you have a good several peer through support, only seeing a larger role for the space. then instead of here, a bill fernandez promising follows ferry theory and is only message that of trying to read the columbia of corrupt politicians. l. a. thank you very much. from mccarter, manga allison durham petite. join east coast are going to stay across that soil bringing more analysis on what could be a transformative election in columbia a bit later on in the program. much more still had on the news. allen, on the developed an over crowded. we look at why the ports have been, jewel is losing favor, is the preferred congo destination for west africa. and then later in support to niecy, an honest jabber gets a lucky break to claim the title in berlin. ah,
12:12 am
early projection suggests it present a manual micron has fallen short of an outright majority in parliamentary elections after a strong performance by rival parties. speaking a few minutes ago, the french prime minister elizabeth bowen said, work would begin to find support from smaller parties to secure a working majority. the final result could see microns health and environment missed as both losing their seats or macros. camp is projected to win $224.00 seats . that does make it the biggest block, but it falls short of the $289.00 that is required for an absolute majority. and that is needed to push through key reforms and policies a broad left green alliance headed by your look man, i'll shore is on track to become the largest opposition party with a predicted at 149 seats. ship. you know, she just, your, it's a totally unexpected situation. absolutely unprecedented. it's the total defeat of
12:13 am
the president's party and there is no majority we have achieved the objective. we gave ourselves in under a month to bring down the man, who, with such arrogance, twisted the arm of the whole country to get elected without knowing what he was going to do when he was. but there was a surprise to night in this election. the prediction that marina pans far i national party has made huge gains. now this was her reaction just shortly after initial results came out with them or does that long think also like though i louise on plus at the end of this long electoral sequence, the people have spoken, overcoming the obstacle of a particularly unfair voting system. that is unsuited to the values about time they have decided to send a very powerful parliamentary group to the assembly. this group will be by far the largest in the history of our political family that has co life to his hash,
12:14 am
about her in paris. what does this mean for a manual mat chron. was a major setback for the french president, you know, in 2017, when he one of the 1st time as president. his 1st term he won a majority with a landslide in the parliamentary elections that followed. and what that means is, for the 1st 5 years, his government have been able to push through a number of often controversial reforms that have been sometimes met with street protests. that is not going to be the same. now the shape of things to come will be very different. indeed, he will struggle to push through some of his reforms unless he can form a majority by appealing to m. p. 's from other parties. opposition parties is not going to be very easy. going to have to create alliances with probably parties on the right in order to try and move ahead or with his reform agenda. he wants to
12:15 am
push through a reforms in areas of welfare, for example, pension reforms and also tax cuts. but of course, any aligns that he's going to make those parties, those m p 's are going to want something back. so it's going to be a very difficult a few years ahead. it's also embarrassing for present micro. we've got a parliamentary election in which a number of his, a top officials and ministers are seem to have lost their seeds. i say scene, because these are still early projections. so all in all, this is not been a good night for the president, which is hearing kept there from marina pan, also important gains for a radical left wing alliance led by john milan shore. how might they thwart microns reform agenda? well, what we're going to see is now a much more fragmented national assembly, fragmented french parliament, that in many ways you might argue better reflects the makeup of the french
12:16 am
political landscape. marine the pen for the right policy, causing something of a stir this evening in france. because it will now have at least probably 10 times more m p 's and has ever had in the past and had in 2017 is going to give it a much more significant voice in the parliament. the new left wing alliance that was created by the far less leaders all in the loop and also has done very well indeed as an alliance or communist socialist greens. and of course, the far less policy. so those big blogs than the parliament rope is he going to want to have their say they are both united on one thing and that is that they are both very much opposed to the french president, the manual micro and that has been part of their success if you live, because in fact, the actual personality, the man himself manual micro has been seen by so many people in frauds as, as our guns. and it'll be a horsey and distance. and that as really, that is really played out in this election because it has been part of his parties
12:17 am
undoing if you like, the people voted not just against micros policies in such large numbers, but also very much against the man himself. thank you, the tash about or in paris, or how me treat it as a political analyst and journalist joins us by skype from paris. so why is president manju micron on cause to lose his majority in the national assembly after winning a 2nd time? as french president just 2 months ago. well, the strong performance or the lift is quality lead by the only commercial equation is expected to make other true for macro. drew, i believe, to implement that i showed that he was erected on in me including taxes, cuts and the are raising for france. retirements. age from do not forget from 60 to to 65. i think the microns government with tiller, you know, have the ability to rule. but only i would say by, you bargaining a,
12:18 am
the with legislator. the sentries are also a tried to negotiate. on case my guess babies with the, you know, lawyer makers from the center. you know, left and from the conservative parties that i believe are now in manion micro doug have the, you know, the majority, the absolute majority is because of his, you know, failure. he couldn't go, you know, on the ground to convince 2 arguments and to try to persuade the french i and that failure. why was he unable to convince people and when support ticket after he won a 2nd time as president and defeated his rivals on the left and the right well above this election, i believe these in france particular in france. but in general, in europe, these, in a democracy is crisis in for us. do not forget that we had that the yellow vest movement, you know, went, you know,
12:19 am
who went in the street or protesting against the matter against the, you know, the liberal economy against the can equality to social equality. so i believe now the sentry to good tried to negotiate on case by case you know, with lawyer makers drew from the sent the lit and from the conservative party, with the goal of preventing position. william maker from being numerous enough. show me in. tell me how many do you think the conservatives or play ball with mac wrong? well, i believe that the gun because the monument get lost or stick, you know, a few ministers or can propose to them, or to be minister in there. he's government. but you will be, you know, it will very, you know, he will not be able to, jewel minerva is on policies without, you know, composing with others. you know, a political party saw the anti bully, taken up in the french parliament. will, of course, change it. we had the in france in historically
12:20 am
a similar situation happened in 1988 and the socialist and the former presidents are last one the hall. oh, then had to seek support from the communist and the sundries to pass laws. so i believe this will be very a tough exercise for the current president, him under michael junior, govern the country. thank you. i me, sheriff, joining us from paris in bangladesh. official say up to 4000000 people have been stranded by rising waters in the worst monsoon floods. in the country's recent history, northeast india is also affected and dozens of people have died across the region since the storm started happening, mid town has more from the delhi india northeast is under water. once again, continues, rainfall has caused heavy flooding, impacting millions of people on a glass of ground. water logging has created issues for everyone. no one is able to

i'll come back here at the news our lie from london on main stories. now. exit polls suggest that president emanuel micron has fallen short of an outright majority in parliamentary elections. the french prime minister elizabeth born says, what would now begin to find support from smaller parties to secure a working majority to push through reforms. now bangladesh in northern india suffering that was flooding in more than a century is monsoon reigned suite. the region of countries of deployed soldiers to help with rescue operations. millions of people stranded by rising waters. and the poles of clothes in columbia is fiercely contested. presidential run off, people choosing between gustavo, petro and dog fernandez, both promising radical change, but with vastly different agendas and credentials. so if more in the story, let's be 2 political analyst, jorge for strep, all he joins us from ball guitar. how close a race is this going to be?
12:34 am
well, we did 20 percent of the vote to come to almost 20 percent of the bowling station. the difference is only a matter of $60000.00 odds. 53000 votes. in percentage terms, it's 1.6 percent dog revolt. give me a little bit of a gunther celebrate roll over rolls with it's very died january. and if it remains, if the figures remain this close, could the result possibly be challenged? well, this is a pre count, which is conducted by the tours in each one of the bowling stations. the actual result will be given by judges growly tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. but yes indeed, if there is such a close goal, it will be better to wait until the day after tomorrow for the results given by the
12:35 am
judges in. ready scrutiny that they do over the election. is this a new era for columbia regardless of who wins? definitely are completely. i mean this is the 1st boast to conflict election in which b or security issues related to the internal arm conflict that columbia managed to . and 6 years ago it's taking place. ready i mean, beforehand we never had the policy of being able to elect a leftist leader, one that will have the largest bench in the country. congress, both in the senate and in the lower chamber, been definitely the issues they, the nature of the candidates are completely different. what, what we saw in the past during the conflict 2 years. so what does this mean for latin american politics? will you see a gustavo, a little the most likely candidate is, will,
12:36 am
will align itself himself with these are leaders of the nationalistic left, this type of ethics, latin america, rather than being a social democratic left like in europe or other countries. the world is much more prone to protection, to work for the indigenous and ethnic communities. ah, that will be a 1st for columbia, but it will be also a 1st in the game that even roll around his wings. there will be a change in their leagues. columbia has been over and for more than 200 years by these bold diet, aids, or merely gina leads, which don't belong to the higher excellence of income in the columbia society. for the 1st time we're going to elect, rather someone from or origins are and someone that he's a self made millionaire. and how do you feel about that?
12:37 am
given his background, the way he's described himself, his presence on social media. i think he very good at blunt simple messaging, the echoes at p polite silvio berlusconi in the full may u. s. president donald trump, but we don't seem to have any specific details on his agenda, for example, how he will tackle inequality and corruption. yeah, it is only for unto corruption austerity which is a very simplistic approach to politics. but one that sound a bell with the vultures in columbia, which are quite tired of they their traditional way of calling them believe. but there is also another point which is that we're going to face a lot of institutional engines. oh candidates big are them and oaks and demagoguery, demagogic olympics is very difficult to put in place in actually in government. and
12:38 am
that will lead to a lot of tensions which investors local international investors, but also in the congress and the courts are, we're for 4 years or very interesting. believe these, with a lot of changes here in columbia. and now this is cassie, your mind had. but if you, if we see those tensions where i the candidate as struggles to implement their agenda and that policies might they try to tampa with democratic institutions in the country? could they try to make changes then? well i, i think there was trying, in some cases, especially in the economic reform agenda. but i have to say that in columbia, and this is a difference from the rest of latin america, gourds are much more independent. congress is highly fragmented on
12:39 am
it who ever wins the election will have to a himself to a lot of stress, to drive, to form a governing coalition in congress, in order to be able to pass reforms. most likely we will see a government that will face of 1st congress and then later on the courts. but nevertheless, i do have trust that our institutions are going to, we stand those charges and i know, you know, the discussions which are normal in any healthy democracy. that for the 1st time columbia are seen mario if you want, i just got the latest report. he's good, actually 34 percent of bowling stations counting and stopping broke, moves forward ahead with 50.2 percent of the road, leaving behind drawn fernandez, which 47.48 percent of the vote fail time close, isn't it?
12:40 am
within the margin of error is i still a very tight res. thank you. i do appreciate and i do appreciate you updating us. thank you very much hot. hey, st. paul barry, market time, take care. thank you. now protest his engine easier. a back on the streets to oppose the president's plans. her constitutional referendum, next month to new jersey, transition to democracy has been tumultuous since the revolution in 2011 and matters came to a head last year. this is when the president k side sacked his government and froze parliament. his opponents accused him of staging, a qu, but side had as argued that he acted legally in order to rescue the country. he went on to award himself powers to rule by decree in september. this allowed him to appoint cabinet members set policy, and put aside parts of the constitution. in february, this year, president saeed dissolved an independent judiciary council,
12:41 am
