on the cookie monster look at the global success behind the iconic children's show sesame street. but it's being counted in spain's general election and what's shaping up to become a battle for power between the countries fragmented left and right this is the 4th time despondence have gone to the polls in 4 years after socialist leader and acting prime minister pedro sanchez failed to form a coalition government but sunday's vote has been dominated by fears of a far right surge and a renewed push for catalan independence well al jazeera is jonah hol is following this story for us from the spanish capital madrid and jonah polls have now closed always getting an idea of what's happening. that's right 8 pm polls are closed we don't have any official exit polls they don't
10:02 pm
do that sort of thing here in spain there are opinion polls that are conducted throughout voting day that give us some highly unofficial but sense of the direction of travel we can at least talk about those it'll be a couple of hours or so not too long a couple of hours before we have an idea of the final results let me bring in my guest miguel entrepreneur and who is a writer and commentator on spanish affairs spanish politics joins me now thanks for joining us me girl looking at these latest opinion polls the socialist as expected get the largest vote share a touchdown of what they had before but their potential leftist partners put almost a touch up what happens next he can't form a government on his own does he go to put demos is that enough well that the problem for the socialists is that even if they repeat the results they had in a field that is really upsetting for them they expected to have a much much better result this time and that's why they call the elections they haven't and that means that their strategy of not finding an agreement with for
10:03 pm
their most has failed so now the pressure will be very strong for them to agree with for them especially because now there are no other options open the centrist party citizens' party which could have formed also a coalition with the socialists seems to be a getting a pounding these these night we will see of course this is opinion polls but they are very consistent in that case there weren't that open option will be closed and while there's a 3rd option but it's highly unlikely and he's the conservative people's party abstaining and allowing the socialist to form a government a minority government that's possible but extremely unlikely especially if the 3rd party tonight is the hard party the hard right party box but we'll talk about that in a minute we're talking of course about pedro sanchez the socialist leader the caretaker prime minister he failed to form a coalition after the apr. vote which led to this vote the 4th in 4 years huge pressure on him now to forge
10:04 pm
a deal might he have to turn to the separatist parties the nationalist parties in catalonia to do that or will it he will have to he will have to because it won't be enough for him to to bring on board the high right the hard left party people there must that long be enough he will have to count on the support of the catalan nationalists and of course catalan national star for independence parties in fact there is now in catalonia turmoil there are very. the situation is very dire there are demonstrations sometimes very island i mean for outside observers that's quite hard to comprehend because what on earth would the nationalists be doing joining forces with the socialist government which has it which denies them what they dearly want and can't give them what they most want yes that's the conundrum obviously the nationalist what they want is a silly binding referendum independence and that's what they are going to demand in
10:05 pm
order to support the government. the government the socialists have said they will not allow that but on the other hand they have been and vigorous as to all the forms of negotiation which are never never really very clear you know clear and that is what he's controversial about the selection how the government is going to balance out these conflicting policies of on the one hand of fate and the violence to get along and on the other hand forming a government which does not rely too much under the national so it could be a route to some kind of dialogue with the national scene catalonia down the road let's talk about the other big issue in this election and that is fox the far right party they entered parliament in april the 1st time the far right has been in parliament since the days of franco their vote count looking like. it might go up. it seems certain to go up we don't know how much it could be up to $660.00 seats which is a lot 50 percent 15 percent of the vote but even if it's not that much it may make
10:06 pm
them the 3rd party that's important because if they are the 3rd party it means the conservatives will be very nervous. so they will be even more and willing to help out. there are scientists to form a government a minority government and then of course that is radicalization of the writing spray nature is a phenomenon in itself let me go on trial thanks for that for the moment we'll be back with the official results when we get them talking about a pretty fractious and fragmented spanish political landscape back to you thank you very much jonah hol in madrid. livia's president evo morales has buckled to mounting pressure and called for new elections after his victory triggered suspicions of fraud and spock's nationwide protest an audit by the organization of american states has found serious in
10:07 pm
regularities and votes and they've now suggested a rerun but the opposition is saying south america's longest serving leader should be allowed to stand for office a toll that america reports now from neighboring chile. less than 48 hours after accusing his opponents and protest years of attempting a coup d'etat against him by libyan president ever more allis conceded that he could not continue declaring himself the winner of last month's strongly disputed presidential elections in a major about face would alice said there would be fresh elections overseen by a new electoral board. was an experience we will have a new national election that will allow the believe in people to democratically elected representatives brothers and sisters in the media and the people who believe you after making this decision i want to call on everybody to reduce the tension we all have a duty to pacify believe you i'm calling for respect among families respect for
10:08 pm
property and respect for authority and for all social groups. the announcement came shortly after the organization of american states announced preliminary results of an electoral audit that left little room for doubt it indicated that signatures had been falsified documents tampered with and that it was not possible to certify that more dollars had won in a 1st round as he claimed it also called for an in-depth investigation to determine responsibilities for irregularities that are tantamount to fraud. but the opposition says new elections are not enough. the main culprits of this fraud. but that has led to several tests of hundreds of wounded the president. and vice president al gore. who must be barred from being counted let's him a new election more alice had originally offered only to hold in 2nd round if the oas audit did not go his way something the opposition said was unacceptable the tipping point for reversing his decision may have been an indication that the army
10:09 pm
would no longer support him if he did not hold new elections. the new poll date and the composition of the new literal board are still to be determined over there while much of the opposition calls for more dallas's resignation arguing he is not fit to govern after overseeing would they call a massive fraud. you see in human are just santiago all turkey's defense ministry says at least 8 people have been killed in a car bombing in northeastern syria a tack took place in the village south of the border town of. turkey has blamed the attack on kurdish y.p. g. forces turkey launched a military incursion last month to clear the border region of kurdish fighters if and so it was halted after a deal was struck with the united states and russia well elsewhere inside syria 7 civilians have been killed after explosions hit rebel held areas in italy a province is thought to have been carried out by the syrian military or their

10:12 pm
holding injured and no one cares about them they are also targeting us with live ammunition the iraqi human rights commission says at least 4 medics have been killed in baghdad since it is a government protests again on october 1st the medics we spoke to say the people shooting at and attacking them are wearing military uniforms. we talked to iraqi military spokesman abdul karim hala if about allegation. and that health care professionals are being attacked. since. they are 60 to 70 people belonging to one particular group and grabbing anti-riot police uniforms they go to the front of the protest as they are not and do right police they are not bought off offices death of aliens on militias we don't know we have started an investigation to track them. how they have says these people he calls infiltrators are also attacking security forces. in tahrir square medics are now feeling

10:14 pm
i'm afraid the next few days already know different a lot of cloud this rain is mountain snow and look at it just blanketing these areas 1st full across the east and then this isn't a particularly strong system really just sitting here in the central and western mediterranean some pretty heavy rain coming from this storm system we could well see some localized floods meanwhile monday across much of the north and the old west another system heads across the u.k. pushing into the low countries northern france cloud but also rain which will not help those areas that have seen recent flooding also quite a lot account generally across much of the iberian peninsula 12 celsius at best in madrid on tuesday more rain chiles to the north of spain and again another system just working its way across much of the northwest of europe and this will produce some very heavy amounts of rain and some pretty strong winds as well but probably the heaviest of the rain is going to this system here is rather slow moving through the central med and we could well see some localized flooding particularly across on the islands and also western sections of the balkans but that same system it
10:15 pm
will bring the rain for the south across northern sections of africa throughout gerrit unisa on into libya and it doesn't clear by cheese day by then even heavier so we could well see some localized flooding. russia has jeopardized the united states' security interests we know what you are doing and you will not succeed perceptions from the outside looking. the picture from the inside. still i think russia's foreign policy is too soft to be most russian goals can be achieved not peace and. russia all knowledge is either.
10:16 pm
welcome by look at headlines now spain's opinion polls are saying there is no clear majority in the country's election the socialists are leading the vote though on the far right vox party looks set to become the 3rd biggest party in the parliament bolivia's president abel morales has called for new elections after an audit found serious irregularities in october's vote but the opposition says marotta should not be allowed to take part in the rerun. and at least 6 people have been killed and more than 30 injured during anti-government protests in baghdad security forces have used tear gas and live ammunition to try to clear protest as from the capital . and more now on the general election in spain as you mentioned before one of the defining issues in sunday's vote has been the mounting protests calling for catalan
10:17 pm
independence as go live to huldah abdel-hamid following this part of the story from barcelona how important has the issue of catalonian independence been in this election hada. well i think many would agree on the fact that there's been a don't we need to issue a review of the political discourse not only dissolute somebody election that happened earlier this year now with any hope that this election will bring that issue forward would try to break the deadlock i don't think anyone has any hope for that actually that if you just mentioned. it as also indicated with what is talking about gets a loan yes that you have more or less the same result as the previous rather just basically a decision is. made with the true independence leftist party is quit
10:18 pm
a republican this is just an indication it doesn't mean that those are defined the results but it is a feeling. the stagnation will continue and that's why i think you've seen this increase the pressure from the street people do stephanie deploy independents wanting to make their voices loud do we've heard all sorts of people saying that they were quite disappointed with their own cattle and leadership but now it's really up to the people to make their demands loud and clear we have one group the democratic tsunami that really has taken by storm. this part of the country over the past few weeks that says it is calling for 3 days of civil disobedience starting tomorrow morning so let's just listen 24 hours after the ballot box is closed we'll have to say to see how much that call will be heeded and what kind of civil disobedience they're talking about they keep it secret but i think the issue
10:19 pm
will remain the same before or after the election and basically said issue where there is no compromise and moment this is not even the possibility of trying to open a kind of dialogue to eventually reach that compromise so from what you're saying that there is no election result that could result. no there is no election result that could resolve this issue simply because if you listen to what the various candidates have been saying during their campaign including caretaker prime minister. well they made it quite clear that when it came to the catalonian issue they will be independents and madrid will never agree on that that it's still views or the referendum that happened back in 2007 teens and really that made all this issue come to the forefront at such will still be
10:20 pm
considered illegal and there's no chance of having another referendum any time. soon because it's simply a good sequels that you should. be observed is someone that was viewed in the past the be a little bit more understanding towards the lads and their demands he is also now accused by those got to love them for having taken a much harder approach and they are using a much harder to resurrect when it came to dealing with this issue you know so no one really here has a hope that at some point the 2 sides would sit together and try to find their way out thank you very much harder for us in barcelona. when out of political developments in romania we're following exit polls there which are showing that president klaus your highness has won the most votes in the country's presidential election but not enough to avoid a runoff vote which will take place later this month will likely face the social democrat leader and former remaining prime minister. in
