communist party taking power. let's go live now to hong kong where our correspondent charlotte some pill is standing by so charlotte today's protest mark anti-totalitarian is a day saw new clashes we saw a lot more violence what is the latest. mariana multiple rounds fired throughout the day today from the moment the police were firing tear gas at people gathered up in districts that because this protest proved by police considered unlawful. cracking down hard where i am in between the shopping district and the government complex have just moved in behind me you can see them still the right behind me pushing those protesters but they're away from the government complex. behind me where they
1:03 pm
are right we seem to be having some difficulties getting the audio from hong kong and we'll hope to get back to charlotte in the next program all right let's turn our attention now to austria where voters are going to the polls to elect a new government sunday's snap election comes after a corruption scandal in may prompted the collapse of the right wing coalition government. is are on the front runner former chancellor of the bus and courts and his conservative austrian people's party of course his party is expected to win it'll probably need a coalition partner to secure a stable majority and 2 he will pick is currently anybody's guess. well for more let's bring in our correspondent mike hoffman who's standing by outside a polling station in vienna so max opinion polls showing sebastian courts his
1:04 pm
conservative people's party with a comfortable lead so can we assume that they will finish 1st it looks like he there won't be any majority against the austrian people's party which of course is the lead candidate on top of that some or even most of those parties have excluded to go into a coalition with the far right freedom party that really believes that the only options through courts on top of that he has a lead of about 10 percent in the polls so you can choose is called a supporter and he hasn't excluded anything so the chances are very very high that the last chance it will be also be the next reside in the building behind me the austrian chancellor rhee quotes all right well we know that course is previous government collapsed because of a scandal and viral involving the far right freedom party. and yet courts has not ruled out forming a new coalition with them why is that. the answer is quite simple if you
1:05 pm
look at all the different parties that he could strike a coalition with the freedom party is on many topics the closest one was about for example on the very controversial topic of migration they already had a program they were set to govern until 2022 but of course then you had that huge scandal surrounding the so-called even video and that's the only thing that brought that coalition down so he could argue that the main person the main culprit is no longer part of that coalition but still you would expect a huge outcry in austria among certain people if he does that again and that's also a reason why he's keeping his options open for example to have a coalition with the social democrats or even some think with the greens all right well this does suggest that perhaps the corruption scandal took place before the summer holidays maybe didn't just not have any impact on austrian voters
1:06 pm
it didn't have the impact that many expected it looks like the far right freedom party will still have about 20 percent of the vote just 3 to 5 percent less than they had in the last election so that is not significant giving the scope of that scandal but we talked to some people here here in vienna who would be very unhappy with another coalition between zip codes and the freedom party take a listen to the kind of shots it's definitely not a people's party freedom party coalition we've seen that wasn't such a good idea to say. we see this if it if i hope it be a setback for the freedom party and they want to get into government why. they have just too far right now almost not cystic and i can't stand that. the 5th missile fleet is i want to see less cheating less going behind people's backs we've got so much brutality. i just wanted to get better. and it's
1:07 pm
a bit see there's a lot of opposition here in vienna in the big cities that's the way but if you go into the countryside there are so many many people that are sticking to the freedom party and that's why they're set to have as i said earlier around 20 percent of the vote all right delhi is next hofmann reporting for us from vienna thank you so much . all right let's get a quick check now of some of the other stories making news around the world vote counting is underway in afghanistan's presidential election after deadly violence marred the polls on saturday nearly 70 attacks are being blamed on the taliban which had vowed to disrupt the elections at least 5 people were killed across the country officials estimate that voter turnout was very low. in poland clashes with right wing protesters have marked a gay pride march in the eastern city of luban about 1500 people marched under heavy guard police used water cannon and detained at several dozen far right
