this, after continuous intimidation of media persons and taking channels off air and gentlemen of a more context on this is sharmen champs from the, the blue asia, sherman iran concord, the government of pakistan, fascist, and according to the police has threatened law enforcement or in the square something coming from a former prime minister. what's behind it? well, i must tell you that in bronze rhetoric is not aimed at promised to ship australia government. he's trying to put pressure on the august on the military because he knows that they are the ones that are on the called the shops. you believe that the army is behind to cracked and he wants to put more pressure on, on the military. the military, general army chief color job, it going to be responsible for a former prime minister con has never been for traditional or dish. so that's why his supporters like about it to listen. and that's what he's trying to do the
4:34 pm
public, really their director, rick. all these things are not putting the military under pressure. so they listen to his to moms. and the demand is that the government holds early elections elections as early as boss. and where does the military stand when it comes to the present situation in pakistan and it's supporting the current government, or is it trying to be neutral? the military is badly supporting the incumbent government, which is the constitutional thing to do because the military is supposed to support the government. but that's not the only thing. the military has huge stakes and boxed on economy and a strategic issue that you want to use. the military believe that can not allow us to do all of these interests,
4:35 pm
and that's why they are trying to rein in the common ground is wrong. iran was ousted because he wanted to influence the military. he wanted to bring in his own military chief, and that is, that has not gone down very well with the pakistani military. doc ross, these terrorism charges that have been, are placed against, or iran con will their effect is chances of redundant power. i think the government runs jamal should be the government is trying to keep it quite for a while. the most important money in fox 20 politics is that when the new army, she will be appointed or the incumbent on which you will get an extension. so until then you will see a lot of political chaos and don't want him focused on. but the government is trying to keep him quite a member of the also do the army so that they can appoint the army chief of their

4:39 pm
. she looks after them here, one of which she says she fears their home will never be finished and the girls won't have anywhere to live. one of the things that's really extraordinary here and really gives you a sense of a scale of the problem, is this whole road is lined with unfinished buildings, one after the other. as far as the, i can see, the homeowners here say there are thousands of people in ju martine who bought unfinished homes with no where else to go summer even considering moving into these ramshackle buildings. but there are hundreds of thousands of others across china and similar situations who are simply refusing to keep up mortgage payments. that may be a problem on loftus, honored by the rappers as also father, father pans, and also for the economy as well. patrick wong is a real estate analyst with bloomberg intelligence. he says, policy makers mainly to shake up the practice of buyers paying developers before

a problem is the current home buyers crisis in china? would you say? i think you're talking about buyers or properties in china, which are not yet finished. and some of them are now saying that they will not be paying the mortgage for the i'm finished property. now, that is a significant, very significant issue, because there are a lot of people in this situation. in china, unlike in europe, people do not start a mortgage after the property has been completed and they are both in, in the chinese case, they start to more gauge when they make the payment for a property, which is still in the planning stage, react, and we are to see that as a general is the government, what are the instability here could lead to social unrest potentially?
4:42 pm
yes, the government is concerned about that. a real estate is a very large part of the chinese economy. so if the unfurnished property mortgage issue becomes a general problem for the property sector variable become a general problem for the chinese economy and potentially causing social unrest. so the chinese government, i think, is very much thinking about what they can do to make sure that scenario does not materialize. because there's also a factor, a president, treason, things, plans for the potential, thought tom in power of the coming party congress in the fall. you know, it's, it's very unlikely that it will help actually, jim ping's efforts to get a search and beginning of the indefinite to the office for the simple reasons that
