11:02 am
really. well joining us now from zimbabwe's capital harare has a house the vote timing out looking like. well they've been a few issues like people going to the wrong polling stations but on the whole things have been going well and we seeing in some areas lines are getting longer and longer here are some of the voters mainly young people if you speak to almost everyone all people in the line they say things like their biggest concern is the state of the economy they want to improve they want to improve this area is called as one of the oldest townships and that's where some of the people live as a block of apartments sometimes there's no running water there's no electricity a lot of people in this area don't work so what they do is they sell vegetables on the streets second hand clothes anything they can really to try and make ends meet but it's not enough so they're hoping we have a wins this election really focuses on the economy that maybe one day investors will come back to the country or the factories and businesses that have been closed
11:03 am
for nearly two decades reopen and that employment is created. this is the first election without being in position supporters feel emboldened to come out and vote. there's definitely a sense of excitement people who've been talking to have been saying things like they feel like there's a lot more freedom now in the country they can express themselves more a bit more in social media talking about who they want to vote for the opposition supporters and harare is traditionally an opposition stronghold and some people here are supporters and they are gunning for the main opposition leader but that city could be a very very tight race according to some analysts they say that the fact that for example robert mugabe has said he's not going to vote for. the. supporters may listen to what he says and also not vote for zanu p.f. which could mean it could be quite an interesting challenging race for president.
11:04 am
but he is still confident he's going to win this election only time will tell but i can tell you right now this is the first in a long long time we things feel very. difference now we're not talking about people being beaten up and people being killed so much is now about how free and fair the process is and can the opposition leader nelson chamisa win enough votes to unseat zanu p.f. which has been in power since one thousand nine hundred. or a new stuff there how. the battle for syria's taken a significant turn in recent months now new peace talks are due to begin in the next few hours they've been brokered by russia turkey and iran the talks are happening in the russian city of sochi instead of kazakstan capital i stand where most previous meetings were held representatives from both syria's government and opposition as well as the u.n. special envoy for syria are expected to attend and speak to her
11:05 am
now inside she said the battlefield situation looks a bit a little bit different this time around how is that expected to impact talks. well certainly the government delegation comes in here in a position and threatened just because of the territorial gains made over the past twelve months and also recently for example by retaking control of the border with jordan and the one with israel now days it is going to be a day of bilateral meetings behind closed doors to funding mr a has a radio arrived we know that the government delegation has arrived staying in a different hotel than the one where the opposition is stay which is normally the case what do we expect out of this meeting is very difficult you said this point but i do know that russia is keen to put forward for example a humanitarian filed with the with the idea that the message through to bring out is that the war is nearly over even though there is still
11:06 am
a battle for looming and certainly the situation in the north east that whole area under control of the kurds is not yet settled turkey has a lot of concerns about that but the message coming out of here is let's talk about the constitution something that has been extremely difficult whether it was during the stand up platform or indeed the un led talks that would happen which happened in geneva and vienna but has haven't resume since january two thousand and seventeen now what they're also going to talk about is what to do with the refugees russia is very keen to start doing resettlement of one point seven million refugees who are mainly in lebanon two key jordan and in europe they were envoy russian envoys who had gone to do those countries last week to discuss that on the
11:07 am

weapons masked in vehicles that i don't have to meet operating with the police there's they're operating as terrorists they're operating as agents of the coup and that has to be counteracted so for the police to protect the police have to have a presence in the national territory and they need to establish that with the support of the citizenry when all is said and done in this case by case analysis comes out we're going to find that there were demonstrators who were killed there were police who have been killed their son in east since who have been killed there are people who were caught in the crossfire of these battles who've been killed and that's probably not and considerable group there are journalists who have been killed also and the only way we're going to know this is through that case by case

11:20 am
unfortunately that choice. before paul was over there was also. announced by the. national election. before he rejected the national community such as the us as the e.u. do you. think institution. has the latest now from lumpen. the overriding sentiment from critics of the government in cambodia independent observers to all of this country is that cambodia must now be regarded as a one party all thora tarion state and when you look at the results of sunday's election it's difficult to argue against that given that the cambodian people's party of prime minister hun sen won almost all the seats in the national assembly only two
11:21 am
other small opposition parties won seats and neither of those parties can be considered a real threat to the rule of the c.p.p. or the prime minister who has been running this country for thirty three years we've seen some strongly worded statements from the cambodian national rescue party that is the party that was dissolved late last year banned from taking part in sunday's election the vice president of that party mousavi saying that it is the death of democracy in this country the result must be rejected democracy has been replaced by outright dictatorship and she went on to say that she believes the cambodian people have been let down by the international community the leadership of that party have been very busy particularly over the over the last six months or so lobbying foreign governments to take action against the government in phnom penh and so far we really haven't seen any tough action taken there are some things in the works like tougher sanctions from the united states possibly tariffs imposed on
