1:02 am
on any more i am resigning for them if we don't want there to be confrontations early this morning we need to ministers and we decided to resign in order for there to be new elections all for bolivia or for life or for the country. there is marianna sanchez joins us on the line now from the bolivian city of santa cruz tell us sierra 1st of all what's the reaction been to his resignation inside the country . well mary there are many cities in the country that are showing people celebrating the main square with flags from people chanting the national anthem. some people all politely tired here in the stronghold of the opposition is something which is the most important economic stronghold of the country well i've been going through checkpoints on the streets and people were a bit nervous there was some tension tensions around the globe have not been
1:03 am
lifted and in fact people were saying that they are very. open and very they are very alert to the will because they don't want people from the parties. 'd at the party to escape as they were told me and some of the checkpoints now everybody says resignation followed a series of. throughout the day for ministers to vice ministers to the head of the electoral try you know. these have taped. i believe. or a communique with a resignation there's also been legislators and then who have also resigned hold. the key i think the key moment that have led to this very dramatic end of 14 year rule of one of the most popular presidents of the in the history of bolivia thought
1:04 am
it on friday when the police. when you tonight. in the future. and other police units also flooded mutinies in other police units the countries that supported by the military higher ranks expressed that they would favor dialogue in this very tense situation and they would stop clashing with her. so they would stay on the sidelines and i think the 3rd moment has did this morning or good morning on a sunday morning when the organization of american states has deals at the down courts of c.b.s. news that devalues your ring and that tool 12 shares of colbert tell us which of course these weeks of very strong. protests in the body yep but have. more people dead and many people wounded and as you know i am not at
1:05 am
marianna i was just going to say point to point out that report by the organization of american states because it really dealt another blow to morale this is efforts to cling on to power didn't it the report saying that there was clear manipulations of the voting process so a damning indictment a conclusion from them we're looking at live pictures right now from people gathering in a street but it looks as though there are dozens possibly hundreds of people that are and that waving flags the mood appears to be quite calm by hops quite celebratory i know that you are on the road to sort of you know traveling at the moment but what is likely to happen to have a more of this now he was giving a statement a little bit earlier but you know what becomes of him. well it's difficult to
1:06 am
point a he has said that to those they say he is truthful and that is he members of the cocoa farmers union that's where he or she. is low to the presidency many years ago she have to add that she was stable. however there was speculation that she would leave for argentina then there's oprah speculation which of course does not confirm that she wanted to ask for asylum in mexico however none of you could come on but it will be difficult if she wants to escape prosecution it will be difficult there is now an order of the shoulders for elmo dallas according to a newspaper and of course many believe you aren't even people who supported him for many many years are asking themselves the largest question of the biggest question
1:07 am
which would be able what i did know about this and brought. in the election and day of course many people here say that it did he needs to be punished because they feel betrayed by the quick by the by by the president all right marianna sanchez thank you very much and we can now speak on the phone from the past 2 journalists and also linda following who is inside the country i'm not sure if you've had a chance to speak to many people since we have this announcement of rod of his resignation but how would you describe the general mood and reaction to this news. i mean i am in an upper middle class neighborhood and within middle and upper middle class neighborhoods throughout libya in urban areas people are celebrating the fact that evil marlice has left in more working class neighborhoods in terms of like the history of this protest after
1:08 am
a through the last 3 weeks there's actually been a very limited amount of activity there's certainly been working class people who have opposed. but but the welcome of it has been centered i think it's fair to say in urban areas and i'm in the middle and the upper middle class. more or less was the country's 1st in. and that was enormously significant for a country when where you have these different groups and he's also been credited with boosting the country's economy and making it a more equitable distribution of wealth much more equitable now and has some concerns that his sudden departure could generate a vacuum where we do see perhaps division confrontation and and. instability. right i mean one of the things that evo morales and certainly in his last campaign that they promoted was that in fact they brought 14 years of economic
1:09 am
stability to a chronically unstable country but i actually think that at this particular point the vacuum that is really most warring in bolivia is the political one. who was formerly president and vice president and who ran against david marr alice and came in 2nd in the elections i mean the fraudulent elections but he did come in 2nd he is the chief political rival as you if you like of. the least within the formal political system or the formal act royal system he came out this morning and said that. new election should be held able not run and that. is that there should be a murder early transition so that that able should sell out the rest of his term well now what is happy and is that the opposition particularly driven by i would
1:10 am
say the right wing in santa cruz has gone on a crusade to target individual people burning their houses down and threatening them taking family members hostage and this has triggered a whole series of resignations throughout the country and eventually abel's resignation as well so there's a political vacuum now because there is not it's not clear who is now going to take the reins of power in the country and as you say it perhaps a fair bit of uncertainty lies ahead but thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us do appreciate it over ungenerous lenda father joining us there from inside a live via. but 95 percent of the votes counted in spain's general election the country remains in political deadlock with no clear majority wenna is the 4th time this gone to the
1:11 am
polls in 4 years and socialist leader and acting prime minister petra sanchez looks set to win an estimated $120.00 seats out of $350.00 in the parliament but it's not enough to govern outright has also been a surge in support for the conservatives and the far right so let's go live to joanna hall in the capital madrid and there we have it john i mean sanchez's party might have done well in this election it might be the party with the largest share of the vote but we've also seen a shift to the right in these results a stable governing coalition might be difficult to achieve. i think so i think a complicated series of talks to come much as we saw you know you brought the president is doing what he can to cobble together a coalition of the left. and possibly finding it difficult if the numbers aren't quite there but there be enormous pressure on him to do so after all nobody in spain wants to see a 5th election in a little over 4 years in the coming months and the other big headline as you say
1:12 am
coming out of these results they're almost there with the final result now is a doubling of the seat count but a bright spot is that only into the parliament for the 1st time in april and indeed that was the 1st time a far right party had been in this parliament since the days of franco so that they but there's certainly a big development as well let me bring in my guest miguel instrument murata is with us a writer and political commentator here is going to be going on to present his call this election to try and block the system to try and solve the problems that he had back in april he really hasn't succeeded as a no not really because knowing founded on the margin of maneuver is deceiving. recently shorter and smaller than he had before previously he could have form a coalition to his left to his vision to the center with a preview this is as far to the to his party has been basically destroyed in this election so now he can only join forces with the far left and with the support of
1:13 am
the nationalists that's all and when you say the nationalists you mean the cattle and separatists among others and that's a pretty extraordinary situation isn't it when this capital and dramas form the backdrop of this election and may also provide the keys to unlocking a socialist government well it is it is extraordinary but the fact is that whether sanchez was already in power because so he had the support of the council and from dependence upon face now this was seen as something temporary probably by scientists who are striving to strike a fine balance between being understanding of the national is about the same time not giving in to their demands of independence but now is different now he will have to form a real a full fledged government with a full fledged policy and the policy of a good article to learn yet is a mystery what is he going to do when he knows it and of course the circumstances of governing made even more complicated by the shift to the right after the renewed tensions in catalonia the box party doubling its share of seats the old
1:14 am
conservative p.p. party being rehabilitated difficult circumstances also for pedro sanchez to face a change but not just for him also for the pay pay for the conservatives because the truth is that the vox fassihi separatists not just to the polish states the people the policies of a socialist but also in the right wing which they perceive that when they were in power that deprived the previous prime minister mariano rajoy a conservative they think many people in spain thought that he was also being not found enough with the nationalists so response he is actually a ones who are much more forceful action in catalonia than even the conservatives are ready to go for. so yes it's a much more from mentees monumental in an ideological sense i don't much more i don't believe parliament than the one that we had before is it fair to say we're basically looking here at either a very weak fragile government or another early election or possibly
1:15 am
a combination of the 2 yes that could well happen nobody nobody once doubt especially now for the socialist it will be of the sastre if they had a new election i think they would suffer and much much greater the feeds so they would try to avoid it but yes of a certain point if they can't pass a budget for example which is crew show especially in these dire economic situation at least the prediction for the coming months is not very good well then obviously they will have to go for a general election again we got a job thank you for being with us this evening final results are almost there the picture is going to join the socialists ahead and a tough road ahead of the former government back to thanks very much jonah how in the trade. with al jazeera live from london much more still ahead including a story china looking to expand its investments in greece teaching pain lands in athens out of his 2nd meeting with the greek prime minister in a week. hello
