soda. a former pakistani cricketer turned politician imran khan has declared victory in the general elections from promising to build a new pakistan around half of the votes of big counted but the official result is not likely to be confirmed until friday speaking from his home as i'm about come promise to create jobs for the poor and tackle corruption but the results of the vote have been challenged by his rival parties. shareef of the pakistan muslim league now was accusing him of rigging the vote or. log of the odds i want to thank god the today we were successful and we got the mandate i now want to outline my vision for pakistan we're going to uplift poor people we're going to uplift the labor and laborers who are weak who are dying of hunger our population
is either extremely rich or extremely poor if god wills we will fulfill all our promises a solid binge of aid has more from the city of law. imran khan's pakistan tehreek e insaf is leading the polls according to iran khan this is a chance that he has been given after twenty two years of struggle in this first speech since this interim result has been announced since these partial results have been coming in he says that he wants a better relationship with his neighbors including of understanding india and also wants to work with the united states has also announced a complete reform agenda for pakistan saying that sectors from education to health to fighting crime needs to be reformed and he has a capable team which is going to do it in this first speech from his friendly capital he also said that he is open to all of the vote rigging allegations that have been leveled against him by various political parties and he will not hesitate to open an investigation into any irregularities. but opposition parties are still
under deliberation they are they are trying to figure out what to do because the pakistan muslim league the incumbent party which lost the majority this election has said that they reject this preliminary result they said that their votes have been tampered with they say that their mandate has been stolen from them they have been holding. meetings within the party and they're saying that they will also reach out to other political opponents to try and form some sort of a convergence of views about how these elections were held how these votes were counted and what is the way forward. is a pakistani t.v. and completive analyst he says a man can has responded to those figuring allegations and refreshing way. well this is a very tricky situation because the same thing happened in the last elections when emraan said there was a lot of rigging and his ballot boxes weren't opened not today the opposition is
saying exactly the same but here i think we got a breath of fresh air and he said in his speech that he's willing to see whatever a geisha is and whatever you know mismanagement has been taking place he's willing to basically investigate it but the hero the situation is not that p.t.i. has won the situation is the fragility of the matter age which might take place between p m l n and the pox on people's party that is where the real crux lies. syrian government forces are inching closer to the front a with the israeli occupied golan heights as they continue their offensive on the south west regime forces could be seen raising the government flag over the village of al how medea it's three kilometers north of connection city which is the main board a point with the occupied golan heights stephanie teka has the latest from the occupied golan heights. we've been witnessing the most intensive fighting that we've seen
and we've been here for the last four or five days government forces backed by russia on this last pocket of opposition held territory which is controlled by a group affiliated with ice and what has been significant today is that we've actually seen and you can probably see behind me outgoing rocket fire now we've seen syrian government forces for the first time on the ground through the lens of our camera moving in vehicles and launching a ground attack against the eisel affiliated group so basically it is an intensive campaign they want to take this back it's the last pocket in southwest syria there's also been spillover across the fence because as you can see the fighting is so close and in the distance you can now see airstrikes it has been such an intensive campaign and the government with its russian ally very keen to take it back a russian delegation has arrived in beirut to discuss plans to repatriate syrian
refugees there almost a million registered as living in lebanon but many of the refugees say they don't want to return home because there's nothing left for them they know how to reports from the back of ali and eastern lebanon. the kremlin says it has a plan to repatriate refugees to lebanon on a delegation headed by alexander love vantive president vladimir putin special envoy on syria presented its proposals to government leaders in beirut a few details were divulged at least publicly but russia is asking the international community to play a role with all of the stuff that the syrian go. during much of financial assistance because of the reach. if you will be professional you must contribute to this. lebanese leaders have said they welcome russia's efforts to ensure the return of refugees so has jordan both countries host
hundreds of thousands of refugees and have complained about the burden on that host nation said russia promised and he returned these will be voluntary but refugees want the u.n. to oversee the operation and provide international security guarantees. the united nations says it still does not have the details of russia's repatriation plan and while it says it is ready to engage in discussions the international organization continues to insist syria is still not safe and that any plan must be in line with international standards. the birth family just like many refugees here say they can't return the list many obstacles from fear to the lack of jobs man yes you have nothing to return to our house has been looted and he's enjoyed it i don't want is there to help us but you are. we are afraid of the regime of legal that my husband will be forcibly conscripted. who will work to feed my kids. for many
the war is not over russia and syria see it differently even though there is no negotiated settlement to the conflict. i think going back returning to their country should. diary and link building and building is the scene of the news you need to address the root causes of the conflict i think this is. it's not the first time russia has asked the international community to help rebuild syria but those countries have linked reconstruction money to a political transition that involves the u.s. it's not clear if that position has changed with the changes underway in syria. lebanon. still to come this half hour they took their first. sorry. for the high. and hundreds of migrant families separated at the us mexico border remain in legal limbo countdown for their reunification.
