8:20 pm
off area outside the parliament building but it's just a section of what's happening in every single street around parliament why well because the ruling labor party the party of joseph muscat the prime minister who tend of his resignation on sunday while they are holding a session inside of this quite interesting ratio of bodyguards to ministers inside some amazing scenes about a half an hour ago where ministers were trying to get into the building were actually rushed in under the wings of bodyguards what's happening now is they're trying to work out how to leave and cars are on standby over there but because as i mentioned every street around here is completely blocked off they're now trying to work out how they can possibly evacuate this area and just going back to these these people over here they've been incredibly vocal and very very angry despite the fact that the prime minister said that he would step down and that televised address on sunday he says he wants to remain in power until january the 12th until
