5:02 am
a record breaking day for hong kong elections the highest voter turnout ever over 70 percent of registered voters cast their ballots after nearly 6 months of at times violent demonstrations the polling was seen as a way for voters to officially take sides in this deeply divided city of 7000000 back the probation candidates in the hong kong government or those who support greater democratic freedoms for hong kong in line with the protesters who've been fighting to push back on what they see as increasing control of the mainland china . this election meant a lot to hong kong the older generation who. of the younger generation hopes for change. it's usually a sleepy election to select a low level local government positions but many will couple early to vote as there was concern that unrest could mean the polling could be cut short for the pro-democracy camp is about a vote of confidence on no confidence on the kerry lamb government and on the

excess use of police force against protesters but a probation can there was say this is also a defacto referendum on the protests and the violence there was an un easy calm during the few days leading up to the election just a week after some of the worst violence in these nearly 6 months of protests that's mainly because both sides knew this election is critical to their cause. kong's leader kerry lamb while casting her vote recognise the challenging times for the city and the importance of peaceful elections. andrew chu won his 4th term as district councillor the pro-democracy candidate was brutally attacked earlier this month part. his ear will bitten off. howard which can have a very strong increase. to a new method for the home from the beijing for it and also the international community does the home as they stand firm together trying to
5:04 am
keep on fight for our freedom and democracy so even though more people voted than ever before and this is a significant election it's unclear if the victory for the pro-democracy parties will ease the violence or help to mend the divisions here got our phone call. and joins us now live from hong kong just bring us up to speed with the latest results just how big are the gains made by the pro-democracy candidates. for the latest official figures at the moment a $388.00 seats in the district council elections to the pro-democrat a democratic parties and $58.00 to the party so it's clearly a landslide victory for the pro-democracy movement and this is obviously normally a traditional and a bit full kind of electional vote but we saw this record turnout of 70 percent of people in hong kong or voters registered going to the polls on sunday now to look at the analysis and give us an insight of what this means for the protest movement
5:05 am
i'm joined by and is an old town boy and been on the front line for months but these protests what does this mean does this mean that the people are behind the pro-democracy protests have been causing some coyotes in the city for more than 6 months i think it's hard to see it any other way going into this people thought it would be a referendum on the protests and the government's performance the government of the pro beijing parties talked about there being a silent majority who would finally have a chance to speak out against the protesters but it seems like that silent majority in fact were behind the protests after all do you think this could certainly have the protest movement do you think they'll be is a morale boost and the. demonstrations well it certainly gives them an opportunity for something of a pause one of the things you hear protesters saying on the streets these last several months is we can't give up with nothing we paid such a high cost in terms of injury and arrests and so on this really gives them something that's a tangible political outcome that might be an opportunity for them to take a step back and reassess the next steps for their protest movement do you think
5:06 am
beijing will be listening to this election result what beijing will certainly have got the message what they choose to do or that will be an interesting question it may be a sign that rather than listening to the protesters more they may try and crack down even further to try and bring hong kong under control and thank you very much for joining us. i was just spoken to another probation legislator in the midst of council he's a portray anything and indicated that that the government the lips of counsel and kerry lamb must listen to this voice he's also suggested protect potentially even a cabinet reshuffle of course this is looking ahead to the bigger lection which is appointing hong kong's next chick a chief executive which will be in 20 twentieth's and next year thank you for that for us in hong kong in other world news highly classified chinese government documents are getting a stock insight into the mass detention of ethnic minorities mostly muslim way course rise groups estimate that more than a 1000000 people have been top in camps in the region the documents have been

5:23 am
navy secretary richard spencer proposing a deal with the white house behind his back the matter has to do with a navy seal accused of war crimes whose case had been in champaign and by president donald trump in his resignation letter richard spencer indicated he didn't agree with tom's demands as bringing in gabriel alexander in washington to explain this further gabriel of the firing of the navy secretary all sense from one high profile case tell us about it 1st. yeah this is a case of eddie gallagher a navy seal commander special forces commander who was in iraq and he was actually jailed in a military jail and went on trial in 2018 for alleged war crimes for allegedly allegedly murder of iraqi civilians in iraq and apparently killing a teenage iraqi detainee with his knife as well he was acquitted of the most serious charges in july of this year but was convicted of
5:24 am
a much lesser crime and because of that even though he was acquitted and he was happy the navy commanders were very much not and they want demoted him and wanted to kick him out of the navy but this particular person gallagher had a very strong ally in president donald trump who had been supporting his cause all along and trump came out and pardoned him of any wrongdoing and restored his rank this came in direct. against the advice of the navy commanders include including a richard spencer the navy secretary and that's why ultimately spencer was relieved of his duties on sunday evening why did president try and get so involved in this case kate. yeah that's a mystery in a lot of ways i mean spencer. lawyer i'm sorry gallagher's lawyer was an ally of donald trump or they knew each other trungpa also watches
5:25 am
a lot of fox news and gallagher and his family went on fox news a lot imploring for the president to support him in this cause but trump as commander in chief has the right to do this of course he is the leader of the military and trump as showed in the past that he's been willing to defy the pentagon let's look at in october when he pulled u.s. troops out of northern syria that was against pentagon advice this is just one more example of this president using his title as commander in chief to defy military commanders when he deems it necessary this is just another example of that thank you for that gave any forests in washington. at least a dozen people have been killed across iraq in the last 24 hours in basra security forces opened fire on anti-government protesters killing at least 3 people they were dispersing crowds near the main port of them cossar protesters burned tires to block main roads across the city more than 70 people were injured and in the

5:31 am
have been actually not. district council level also in the immediate future i think. beijing will consider democratic and more seriously. the result they say probably. accounts all the moms in the consideration. so i think this is the way a lot of the democratic camp will lost its credibility of course what. the government let's hope. it's interesting that you say that because almost 5 months now of anti-government demonstrations the central government in beijing doesn't seem to have taken this protest movement seriously why would they now that this election has come about. well i think. i think the chinese government the central government and the local government do take the focus very seriously the problem. the
5:32 am
politically monster that has been made of the central government and the whole government by the protesters cannot be met that easily under the current look of $1.00 and $1.00 system so it's not a question of beijing i don't think it's a question of beijing government being boring every month as the protesters frame it it's more a question of whether they can actually implemented this and implemented this without. hurting your own goals and interests. particularly the. question of sovereignty and all of this is also linked to other issues like iran in sudan where beijing have taken a very lengthy stance so. yes they there are those who say that these results for perhaps help calm the demonstrations and bring about you know calm to the streets of hong kong but there is still a great time in
5:33 am
a big gap between what the pro-democracy camp one center and what the probating establishment wants how do they break. i don't i don't i don't see how they can bridge has to be honest and i think the car is shortly and the reason is because the results actually and those elections the democratic camp now we we cannot. allow. assuming a sort of biggest would be the statement who said it all the democratic can and it . has happened when it's transpired over the past 5 months but i can say that a substantial number of them have been at the forefront of the if you like to call it the riot or yet rest so all these yes the people of the democrats said well perhaps if we did it we actually get the endorsement of the wrong people so the exodus election there's no guarantee that the democrats are not going their turn as the sitting back strategy to try to garner votes with the support so this is the
