1:01 am
and floats and flags but no missiles as north korea marks its seventieth anniversary with a huge military parade. let's begin in sweden where early results show the country turning right to and heading for a hung parliament with around eighty percent of districts now counted the center left bloc led by the prime minister stephan loaf and has just over forty percent of the vote and that is almost a dead heat with the center right alliance led by the moderates significantly the far right and hammer gratian and d.e.u.s. sweden democrats led by jimmy opus and are on track to be the second biggest party with more than seventeen point eight percent of the vote well john holl is live for us at the headquarters of the center left social democrats so i guess the results are starting to be a little bit more clear now how are they going down so far. well
1:02 am
here at the social democrats headquarters the center left party that's been the ruling party going into this election they've been celebrating barbara bush still the number one party in sweden politics swedish politics as they have been for a century albeit having seen their worst result ever in this election it's an illustration really of the way this election has peeled support away from the center ground the mainstream old parties of the center ground benefiting the smaller parties in particular those in the extremes the extreme left doing pretty well and of course the far right to sweden democrats they're the big winners of the night really although they've not done nearly as well as they hoped and many fear has medical. the center left social democrats have been the biggest party in every swedish election for a century true again this time but not by far and it's
1:03 am
a relief it's been their worst result of a i think it's fine big problem now is how can we make it. how can you be a government with this since it's really hard to see. how to how to make us table government this is an election that scene support shift from the center to the extremes coalition building will be tough one big winner has been the anti immigrant sweden democrats are not as big as they'd hoped the story of the night is that while the far right has become a force in swedish politics they won't be taking over just yet what would seem hairy is a political earthquake. really brought to sweep this political history and i think that they're the leaders of the two big parties social democrats and the moderate party need to listen to this single from the swedish people need to say is the policies. that the sweetest people want to see the rise of the far right in sweden
1:04 am
meant voters took to the election with customary. suzy hasn't even if many harbored deep concerns terrible i just want to cry when i think about it the see. awful thing is i mean yeah of course we have a lot of refugees here we need to take care of them they come from a terrible place terrible for us we can't just throw them out immigration and integration have been front and center in a divisive vote with this country's famous values of tolerance and openness at stake so sweet it isn't in danger of becoming a far right state and nor are the sweden democrats even likely to make it into government no party at this stage will even talk to them but they are likely to continue to exert and in direct influence on the wear head having already succeeded to the horror of many in putting nationalism and identity politics on the swedish agenda peter waller dusky is editor in chief of one of sweden's major daily
1:05 am
newspapers the tone has already changed it has changed a lot and i think the major change came in two thousand and fifteen after the big refugee crisis a lot of refugees came in sweden in a very short time span and the systems here didn't work properly and lot of people reacted to that and the sweden democrats sort of logical consequence of the well they searched in the polls as a result of that crisis and they've stayed on that kind of result since some swedes will tell you the rise of the far right is overblown that this country has never been happier or more prosperous but extrusion politics are in sweden to state now and many other swedes see trouble ahead. well jonah following on from the end of your report there how big a change do you think this will be for the political landscape of sweden.
1:06 am
well i think it's been a pretty put flexing election in many respects barbara and more perplexing still will be the coalition talks to come people talk of it taking on weeks there is literally no space at all between the center left of center right coalition you see who will form a government one or other of them the center right leader has called on stefan lluvia in the center left social democrats prime minister to step down saying his party is his coalition has run its course and i think we're going to hear a lot of that sort of talk in the coming days of one thing is clear the sweden democrats are unlikely to get a look in the government nobody will talk to them they've already reiterated that as the results are coming in this evening but yes it's an election that has drawn a new political landscape here in sweden the two big parties much diminished though still dominant with the extremes now having to be listened to jimmy ackerson the sweden democrats the far right party leader saying that the result means his party
1:07 am
will have major influence in events here in sweden in the coming weeks and in the coming years and i'm sure he's probably right the election has demonstrated that immigration is a big problem in this country the foreigners coming in and not nearly as welcome as they once were also that nationalism and identity are big issues and these are major revelations in a country that has been long famous for its openness preach tolerance that has held high the sort of moral mantle in europe and far beyond a country that must now put forward a rather different face to the world and how with the latest from stockholm jelena thank you. ferrite protesters have held a rally in the eastern german town of coton following the death of a twenty two year old man two afghan migrants were detained in relation to his death police have since revealed the victim died of heart failure the two afghans aged eighteen and twenty two are being investigated on suspicion of causing bodily

a serb counterpart visits the region this despite the pair cancelling talks on friday to discuss the future of territory swap meant to improve ties between the two countries alexander addressed a huge rally in the serb dominated city of which could be part of the swap but he was blocked from visiting other places. now explains. this was the message that these kosovo war veterans wanted to send to serbia's president aleksander of which each had been determined to visit a serbian habited village so rounded by nobody in population the local mayor a man who had lost his entire family in a crackdown by serb forces twenty years ago made it clear that he would not be welcomed. fifteen thousand people were killed here during the war and thousands are still missing the serbian president cannot pass through here without apologising for the crimes that were committed by serbia the wounds run deep in this corner of

the balkans. and patriotic fervor runs high serbia lost control of kosovo nearly twenty years ago after a bitter conflict with rebels fighting for an independent state nato is a defense and eventually bought the fighting to an end but the government in belgrade has never accepted kosovo's two thousand and eight declaration of independence addressing one of the most nationalists of communities in the region was always going to be a challenge from east of which the community here has always railed against compromise but compromise is exactly what most of which has been urging saying that war and violence of any serve to isolate the serb community here. the idea is to save our people our country our institutions to preserve peace and at least try to build bridges of trust towards the open eons. to strive for an agreement even when we know it's nearly impossible because the alternative leads up

to an abyss and catastrophe. the crowd may have listened and politely applauded but not quite prepared to let go of the past to the medulla we got the message that we should continue to stay here to fight for kosovo until we die even then our children will carry on. we have to continue our presence here and i believe better days are coming those hopes rest on how both serbs and albanians can not only live together but also thrive this is one of the poorest regions in europe and both communities are equally affected joining the european union would many here hope help financially but there is much that needs to be done for that to happen missing the only memory of them until we have no other alternative serbia cannot continue to talk of accession to the you approach normalizing relations with kosovo and kosovo in turn needs to fulfill its obligations prior to the parliament elections in the coming spring and in
