more. as dawn broke hong kong to a new political landscape more than 70 percent of voters cast their ballots in sunday's district council elections the pro-democracy party secured a record number of seats a lot of people actually sacrificed a lot as they suffered a lot in the last 6 months to actually get this result and i think people are very . united and they are so together to actually try to win something joshua long was disqualified for running but his party claim victory in his electorate unseating the incumbent councilor remarkable achievement in that this election is the efforts of callers especially. protests are a hotline for lying there's the pray the price span the time or even sacrifice in
the protest movement until now the probation parties held the majority in the district councils but anger against the government eroded their support they've apologized to the public for misreading the vote those aligned to the post camp say it's a nightmarish result and the city's government will need to reassess the people's demands have spoken quite loudly and clearly haven't so i believe what we now do is such a quote of 5 major demands and without invent any of them can be dealt with by the more satisfactory than before the district council elections are traditionally and on a vengeful poll but after 6 months of anti-government demonstrations and increasing violence this election was considered a barometer of public support for the protesters this is a win for the protesters that could be a point for them to say we've we've i reference on the street have converted into a tangible political outcome of this is a good opportunity to step back and take stock and and think about what next for
the protest movement so it may see a period of relative calm for hong kong after a very turbulent 6 months the pro-democracy movement celebrated their victory on monday but some protests is rallied to show their support to those who are still holed up inside the polytechnic university for more than a week the district council vote comes ahead of the midst of council election next year sunday's record turnout is considered a message from voters to reopen the discussion on the city's political reform the government now has 10 months to make changes before voters go to the polls once again. al jazeera hong kong. but despite the scale of the victory beijing says it will continue to back home calls me to carry law and her government andrew thomas has the view from beijing. in mainland china hong kong's election results are being effectively ignored asked about the landslide victory for pro-democracy candidates a spokesman but china's foreign ministry of voided the question drew ball to an
ending violence and restoring order is the priority for hong kong hong kong is a passive china in hong kong a fears a purely china's internal a few. chinese media 2 said nothing about opposition parties doing well this is monday's china day printed on sunday night before the results came out inside it suggests the high turnout is good news for promise stablish from parties but since the results are come out nothing no update on the website of this newspaper at all and nothing in any of china's official media on the substance of the results. we stopped people in beijing to ask them what they thought of the result. the response was confusion there was this how you go on like have no one we spoke to had heard anything about them without him being the one man who did want to talk said this broad throughout history i haven't paid
too much attention this vote in hong kong yet but i think stopping the violence and chaos is the priority now we are too soft on the honker facts tolerance has to have a limit. the chinese central government should strike them hard. but do you know the result of the vote no i don't know the result yet i've been busy all day with work and. official media coverage before hong kong's vote and of the turnout but not the results suggest speccing thought those results would be different it seems unlikely though that the actual results will change beijing's attitude towards hong kong i don't think there will be any change in the positions on the chinese central government why because this is a matter of upmost importance to the child in me it really impacts on the one country 2 system it impacts on china's sovereignty over the whole car already the

should function go live now to our white house correspondent kimberly how good in washington d.c. kimberly this comes down to the fact that the defense secretary says he lost confidence and trust in spencer how did that happen. it has so many layers but essentially this is another debate in washington over whether or not there is a limit to presidential power as we've seen in the impeachment inquiry as we've seen throughout donald trump's presidency various layers of bureaucracy in this case now it is the military potentially pushing back on efforts by the president to intervene in this case it involves a navy seal who was accused of misconduct and when the navy secretary pushed back on the president's efforts to restore his job to restore his ability to identify as a navy seal with his trident pen as it's known that is when it cost richard spencer
the navy secretary his job now in the midst of all of this we have had in the last hour confirmation from the defense secretary that in fact there was a demand by the u.s. president as we saw on twitter for the accused navy seal eddie gallagher who is accused of war crimes and 2017 exonerated on those charges but convicted of posing with the corpse of an iso fighter and that's why he was facing reprimand internally the president demanded that his try to pin according to the defense secretary be restored so it as we pull back from the specifics of this case there is now a wider debate in washington at what point does the military have a duty to push back against the commander in chief that is president trump if they feel that there is an order that is illegal or even just an ethical or immoral it's a very fine line and while most are saying this was a legal demand by the president many are questioning its morality and that is where
this debate is coming in and it does extend into the far reaches of the government because this is yet the latest example that we've seen a level of bureaucracy pushing back on the president many accusing him of abusing his presidential powers so a lot more to be known about this kimberly thank you so much come as a media show you tell me i'm being home and i'll tell him he has been meeting turkish president richard type who want a love song and 8 agreements including financial and civil planning some of the divided has to something. it's the 5th session of turkey but there are strategic dialogue between the president of turkey and the emir of qatar issues pertaining to bilateral ties as well as international issues were discussed in this meeting we've been told matters pertaining to finance or been a zation standardise asian as well as bilateral trade came in the discussion the turkish foreign minister says that although both of these countries have
a deep understanding of each other's issues and support each other on their standings there is room for improvement resign aid agreements or more you to strengthen the legal basis of foreign relations and we have been we have been discussing also the regional issues turkey and qatar has the same position and we have excellent cooperation on the regional issues so. this region and even beyond after meeting the emir of qatar or the turkish president or visiting the bases the military bases that turkey has established under a 2015 agreement this is one of those areas where turkey and qatar have become closer after the blockade imposed by its neighboring countries. because of very profound roots in this region it means we have always given great importance to the top security turkish troops presence here is not only for our brothers in qatar but for peace and stability of the entire gulf region. and there's been widespread
concerns over lebanon's economy a shortage in u.s. dollars it's caused several businesses to cause and many of lost their jobs the crisis is triggered growing fears about the country's economic future so in a horror as war. there is a shortage of u.s. dollars in the lebanese market it's causing a crisis and adding to the political and certainty as the campaign against the leadership gathers momentum the economy doesn't rely on the local currency the euro importers pay in dollars and many businesses demand payment in the u.s. currency strong arm. i'm going to move from my apartment because the owner is insisting on taking that i'm. not willing to pay it because this really means up my grant will increase approximately 3035 percent. the official rate of $1500.00 liras to the dollar has it changed but banks are limiting access and that has created a black market where the local currency lost up to 25 percent of its value it's
driving up the cost of goods in a country where almost everything is imported. now and. this is an increase in prices with you deal with dollars or not it makes no difference prices of goods are going up we're buying in layers and it's lost value. businesses have been closing and staff are being laid off the local currency which had been stable for decades began devaluing before the nationwide protests against the ruling elite began in september 11th aunts leaders to learn what they called them and on the state of emergency it was their plans to raise taxes to fund government expenditures that sparked the demonstrations a month later. the country's also in political turmoil facing what many describe as its worst crisis since the end of the civil war in 1990 those in the governing alliance are blaming the protesters who are calling for a nonpartisan government and early elections for contribution to the economic
collapse it's an accusation they deny. us blocking the road at this point in time is not going to leak harvick within the region or cause any traffic more than there are the is but rather stand as a symbol of what we need to the fact that we will not be stopped by fear and that regardless of what happens we will continue to move forward because we are very persistent words like. they have opponents the mainly sectarian parties in power supporters of the shop parties hezbollah are hostile towards the protests and they have used violence against those in the streets there is a fear the relative calm just now may not hold. beirut. presidential elections sunday's vote follows years of power struggle and social and political turmoil early results are expected life in this way because our reports from. this is i said 2 buddies 1st presidential election
