. ever your. millions in thailand get their first chance to vote since the military i'll say that the elected government in two thousand and fourteen. hello i'm sam is a guy and this is al jazeera live from doha coming up the u.n. the warns of a worsening situation in storm ravaged southern africa with the death toll has
11:49 am
passed seven hundred. i saw is forced out of its last scrap of land in syria u.s. backed kurdish forces those say the group still poses a threat plus. a terrifying ride for passengers on a cruise ship as its engines fail and rough seas push it towards the rocky shore. of thailand is voting in its first elections and symmetric who in two thousand and fourteen the leader of that coup cry you channel child wants to remain this prime minister through the ballot box his biggest challenge may come from poor thai the most prominent anti join to party it's linked to exiled former prime minister
11:50 am
thaksin shinawatra he was ousted by the army in two thousand and six as was his sister eight years later when a third group is led by the anti tax in democrat party which argues that it can form a government that neutral is also the future of forward policy charismatic billionaire front man is popular among younger people all voters will decide the make up of the five hundred seat house of representatives of the senate is appointed by the military. florence louis is in taksim chynna wants hometown of chiang mai lives to speak the first is called hyde leahy's in bangkok and so skull first of all that start with how's that looking. to me it's looking quite good quite honestly you know it's still early hours it's only been voting has only been going on for just over two hours now but we had early voting last week
11:51 am
and those numbers were very very big and we're also anticipating based on that and other opinion polls that there were going to be a lot of people coming out to vote and one thing to note you know we're at a polling station here the prime minister prime cast his ballot box just over my shoulder it's a little bit thin here now there's by about i say maybe dozen people here but you need to know there are over six thousand voting positions throughout bangkok so there are a lot of places lot of different places if you go and vote but overall we're expecting a very good turnout as you alluded to say i mean that's because this is a very critical vote for the people of thailand do people feel that the new electoral system that was given the policies of. skull. not really when you talk to particularly human rights observers you know over the last five years since the military government has been in control they rewrote the constitution and essentially in that constitution they stacked the deck in their favor that being because they get to
11:52 am
a point the military government and associates appoint the upper house the senate all two hundred fifty seats there needs to be three hundred seventy six seats for one party to form a government so obviously with maps and started they do have a party running today as well with that massive head start in their favor there are also other planks in that constitution that favor the military government that any support subsequent government has to follow a twenty year plan that they constructed so it's really going to be a democratic exercise today here on sunday but the government though ultimately be formed out of this election won't be all that democratic semi all right thanks scott for then it's continue now on the scene though we'll talk to florence louise she's in chiang mai so how much support does the opposition have in places like way you this point. well this is an area that can be considered a stronghold for tire that's the party linked to thompson the former prime minister
11:53 am
of thailand this is an area that could be counted on to deliver votes to tie and the reason for this is because the north and northeast parts of thailand are made up mostly of more rural and farming communities and thompson was one of the first politicians to pay attention to these communities he gave them access to cheaper health care to agricultural subsidies so these communities have remained largely loyal to thompson despite him having been in exile since two thousand and eight now and opinion polls suggest that the pad thai party is in the lead but they are unlikely to win enough seats to be able to form the next government on their own but they really shouldn't be ruled out because there is a new party future for it you mentioned that by young billionaire that it's captured the imagination of the younger generation and there are as many as the team the fent. first time voted in this election so if you cheer for gains and
11:54 am
nuff votes and they have said that they are anti military rule they could very well form a coalition with the potage party so it's a to what extent florence's this election season really is a referendum on the rule. well because of the way the deck has been the static you know a lot of democracy activists a lot of observers already saying that this is not a credible election this is not a free and fair election because no matter who wins the election the outcome is such that the military will still have a continued role a continued influence over type politics not just because of the way the electoral process is drawn up they've also drawn up a twenty year strategic plan that isn't trying to end the constitution that will bind successive governments to the general vision for thailand so whichever way going forward the military has carved out a place for itself now the so this vote really is seen as
11:55 am
a way that you know it's been painted as whether or not you choose the military or you choose and military party but in a sense the military is likely to have a continued influence in time politics however if the anti military groups even if they don't win enough seats to form the next government if they can win the popular vote and win by a decisive majority this can go some way in stripping some of that gets messy not only off this election but also from iran whoever forms the next government pursuant to these polls. or right thanks so much strong. at least one hundred thirty four full army herders have been killed in mali during an attack blamed on an ethnic militia group gunman dressed as traditional domes or hunters targeted the village of a gossip who that was in by cast district but also attacked another full on the village nearby ethnic violence has compounded an already dire security situation in
11:56 am
mali as desert regions which were used as a base by al qaida and ice linked groups. hunters are part of mali's largest ethnic group the nomadic for people are dispersed throughout the south and west africa the two communities often clash over access to land and water in january thirty seven people were killed in another four and a village that attack was also blamed on the done so often accuse the full army of ties with al qaeda linked fighters before they say that mali's military arms dons are hunters to attack them paul melly from chatham house says africa program says that accusation is yet to be established we don't yet know if the army has actually armed some of the traditional hunters what we do know is that over the sort of four or five years that this crisis in the center of the country is
11:57 am
accelerating the army has really struggled to maintain any control there been a lot of random attacks on military bases and particularly isolated military outposts for example or checkpoints where armed police or gendarme are checking on travelers and that has stirred up bitterness among the army the army is not always been as disciplined does it should have been not as well trained as it should have been and this is a very different situation from the north where for example the french and the u.n. forces are deployed in much greater force which is a bit nearer to a conventional sort of anti terrorist situation this is a really a mixed community situation with an awful lot of bitterness intentional that surrounds the death toll from a powerful cycle and that pummeled southern africa has passed seven hundred as diseases talk tens of thousands of survivors more than four hundred known to have died in mozambique alone but officials there and in zimbabwe in malawi say the
