hit albania in decades topples buildings and injures dozens of people. one of my climate change matters more to than the economy to most of british voters . but 1st let's go to georgia where protesters are attempting to block people from entering polman this happening of course in the capital tbilisi they have been demonstrating for weeks now they want change to the electoral system police of use water cannon to try to break them up but so far they are refusing to move so we can go live now to our correspondent there robin for us a walker is outside parliament what's the situation and all the protests is managing to maintain their presence and indeed. to block people from getting into
10:02 am
parliament. team right now you can probably see just behind me in those yellow jackets in those yellow jackets the georgian police who have formed their own court to know around the sides entrances to the main parliament building they've put up yellow buses said to block the roads to stop and in and anticipated attempts by the opposition to prevent the governing party in peace from attending a session this morning inside parliament this is how things looked last night. too which is a position wants to show that the government won't be put given breaking its promise of and looked. after it failed to approve a system of proportional representation and elections street rallies against the government and its informal only god. if it is really becoming the norm it's an
10:03 am
absolute must for the country to have electoral reform which would give all your parties the fair ground and then people could choose whatever they want in the government so no matter how harsh the government behaves whether they use the police or whatever we are going to. be very tough on our right to demonstrate is repeated that tactic of putting up tents outside parliament camps last week was swiftly cleared by riot police. this is the 2nd it's. something of a symbolic it's heads to disrupt parliament to locate the street. police are over here. sure that nobody it seems to have looks back on the gates but the opposition basically saying that this parliament lacks legitimacy given that it reneged on that promise of electoral reform. judges governing party says
10:04 am
no changes to the electoral system before 2020 would be forthcoming time so fast they have to wait until 2024. that's your message to the opposition this is the most to the opposition. the government argues protest is a just supporters of its discredited united national movement but that underestimate the strength of public. it's never happened before in. different political parties are united and we are i mean civil society and political parties are uniting to have proportional actions is that because we know that we don't want one marriage rule we want everyone to have they are rotting problem. the government hopes this protest movement. is poor it catches the imagination of the nation.
10:05 am
all right robin well with that so what then are we seeing this unprecedented coalition of opposition parties plus civil society and how representative of the general population are they how many people support the cause for electoral reform . it's always difficult to gauge the strength of public opinion polls that we've seen reliable polls suggest that this government does not enjoy a large degree of support from the general population having said that the main opposition party is also deeply unpopular and i think that's the way the government likes to couch this it basically says that the people outside the building or the united national movement will formally in power but it's we were hearing then from this it's more than just the opposition main party it's. a collection of
10:06 am
different political parties and civil society groups the question is whether. the public will come out to support this movement because it's difficult to get. people excited about legislative reform it's it's not something that's that sort of tangible for people i would like to mention as well that 'd what happened this morning is that again the riot police moved in and clear the streets once again of this of these protesters and the government as we'll see soon report is in no mood to compromise simply saying the topic is now closed no more room for discussion but i get the impression that this political crisis at the moment is in no sign of letting up and the opposition is hopeful that it will be able to continue with this momentum whether it's more protests like we saw yesterday or
10:07 am
other forms of actions to remind this government that they haven't forgotten on the promise of electoral reform and they want the government to acknowledge that and do something about it we know that the international diplomatic community as well has been putting a lot of pressure emphasis on trying to get the government all sides in fact to think about how to compromise because the problem in this country now is that there is so much. division within the political system how the riced polarized society and a lot of distrust in the political process all right robin thank you for that robin for a walk of the live in tbilisi. now to the eastern democratic republic of congo where unrest has continued with col says allied and armed men on the streets there's growing anger against the u.n. in beni over persistent attacks from rebels despite the presence of the world's largest contingent of peacekeepers just a day earlier people stormed the united nations compound many bringing the bodies

10:18 am
of cameras since this election on sunday and this overwhelming voice from hong kong people that are dissatisfied by the way she's handled the situation the crisis and why and the government quite frankly by voting for pro-democracy councillors in these local elections so that is really kind of the top line out of it now she. issued a statement on monday pretty much very similar to what she said today that you know she hears the voice from the hong kong people that they are dissatisfied with the way the situation has been in this political crisis but the key here i believe is that what the government does. to calm the situation saying in recognizing that people are dissatisfied with it is one thing actually doing something about it is another. in lebanon supporters of to share movements have been fighting with antigovernment protests is for the 2nd night running hezbollah and amal opposes protests is demands for an overhaul of lebanon's power sharing system where posts
10:19 am
are divided on a sectarian basis and this is been some of the worst violence since protests against the ruling elite began last month well scenes like these are putting lebanon's military and security forces in a difficult position they've gone to great lengths to protect anti-government demonstrators for more than a month now confronting the powerful iran backed hezbollah could ruin the neutral stance the military seeks to maintain and indeed split its ranks the army is one of the few status situations that enjoys wide public support is seen as a unifying force in a deeply divided country where my colleague. specter rami who are in boston in the united states he's a journalism professor at the american university of beirut and shell said what message has bother and its allies are trying to send by rallying their supporters on to the streets so one theory is that these are this show of force just before

10:21 am
going to happen the risk is that the army would get pulled into the tensions on the street and some of the violence and then perhaps the army would would implode from within and would collapse and some share members some christian members some some members some group members would all leave the army and go from there on the mission this is what happened during the civil war when the army collapsed with i don't think that's going to happen benjamin netanyahu does not have to stand down as israeli prime minister even though he's facing corruption charges the attorney general has confirmed he can stay imposed but not whether he can keep other ministerial positions netanyahu has been indicted for alleged strolled bribery he's dismissed the charges as an attempted coup. hoofy revels in yemen say they've launched rocket and drone attacks on a saudi u.a.e. military camp in. in the south of the country the rebels claim they've killed or
