1:07 am
but that is what he is doing a lot of people believe that that is a requirement of the u.s. war powers act that limits a president to 48 hours of sending troops anywhere without congressional approval and there are a lot of people very upset in congress right now meanwhile the president has been talking to his allies we have statements out from emanuel mccrone of france saying that he found many to be destabilizing boris johnson of the united kingdom also spoke to the president and said that tsunami posed a threat he said we will not lament his death but he also went on to say that retaliation is in no one's interest and it should be noted that the president has designated 52 targets he says he hasn't told them told us what they are but those are allegedly one target for each of the $52.00 americans who were held hostage in iran in 1979 during the revolution there the state department has put out a much more moderate statement saying they were disappointed by the vote of the

1:09 am
has been so critical of so the u.s. is making a lot of friends there john 100 thank you very much indeed. venezuela's opposition is denouncing what they're calling a parliamentary coupe off to opposition politician luis parra declared himself as the head of the national assembly for more latin america as a solution human joins us from caracas so he has talk us through this kind of complicated scenario in venezuela. very complicated scenario indeed it began in the morning away the very suspicious movements around the national assembly with most of the opposition deputies not being allowed to to surpass at least 3 or 4 national guardsmen barriers that had been placed even the even the journalists we couldn't get into the national
1:10 am
assembly but eventually little by little they were allowed in but not to a group of around 31 guys all up until then was the president of the national assembly and has been the self-proclaimed president of the country said he would not go in unless they were all allowed to go in and while all that took place inside a sperry small group of opposition deputies who have turned on by who have been accused by the way all of one of them i understand of being embroiled in a mass corruption scandal they said they suddenly said they would no longer supported and one of them was sworn in as the new president in a very very irregular situation where there was not a roll call where there was an even accounting a formal counting of hands to see how many people really voted for that but it was mainly a small minority all the pro-government deputies with another small minority of opposition deputies were no longer support they let that pass informally while i go
1:11 am
was trying to jump over the fence it was a very very tall fence with spikes his jacket was ripped a lot of people were hurt and the national guardsmen we saw that ourselves pushed them out they wouldn't allow him to get in and right now he has just been nominated in the building that it has right behind me which is actually a newspaper building with a group of around 90 opposition deputies they have really held the session and so he has just been nominated again as the president of the national assembly and is the interim president of the venezuela and they are voting one by one and there is no doubt that in the next hour or less he will be again. supposedly voted in but the question is who is going to recognize that besides the international community president google has just announced that or has just held a conference a televised conference saying that all this proves that why go no longer has the support of the opposition that there's a new a new directive now in the national assembly which is the only just the only
1:12 am
institution in this country that is actually recognized around the world as being the judum it so it's a very very complex situation which is just going to raise the stakes even further . is it your impression that the listen the kind of divisions this in the opposition as it has essentially strengthened maduro's position. that is not so clear in fact many people have been saying all along that the status quo is what strengthens medaled this position because they were in a kind of a limbo why they always losing terrain and it was losing support because they hadn't been able to dethrone my little and it was just a matter of time and it is just a matter of time before there will be new elections this year for a new legislative assembly by then they assumed that. rather than i would be in a stronger position so this is not the status quo anymore this brings the conflict to
1:13 am
a new level once again that had been rather dormant over the last few months here. whether whether this is going to really help. or not is still a very very big question but it is going to raise the level of conflict of indians country this in humans thank you very much indeed. for the most ill to come including funerals for the army cadets killed in the libyan government and no doubt used to play. in the hong kong protests take a new turn with police cracking down on traders showing that anger across the board of business. had there we have seen a change in the weather across the southeast of australia and not a moment too soon this is the line of cloud bringing with it those rain showers and
