12:21 pm
or man has been meeting more forever. he's been serving coatings in this monkeys. i is from the provincial town of hot mess of asher hay, where he organized a national movement to unify political parties. peter marking, sy is hardly a high profile politician. his mare, of a town known mostly for its unusually long name. he isn't a member of parliament. he doesn't belong to a political party yet he's posing the biggest threat yet to victor. all them. the 2 men do have one thing in common though. they're both conservative or band disputes that he brands, marcie zion, his alliance as left wing, the little ma mazda, the left, thinks that ukraine fights are wall. this is what the leader of our opponents said, word for word that ukraine fights are war. this is a mistake, this is not our walk in this war. we cannot gain anything but can losing everything

12:23 pm
the president alexander, of which it should have a 2nd turn. as in hungary, the election lead up was dominated by russia's invasion of ukraine. butch's campaigned on promises of peace and stability. the elections are to choose the president, parliament and local authorities in the capital bell, great opposition and p central anchor have to fight a curfew to march of the capital demanded. the president stepped down. the government's declared a state of emergency after violent demonstrations over a was thing, economic crisis. it's banned public gatherings, unblocked social media protests as an angry, over, unprecedented shortages of food fuel and medicines. out as here as michelle fernandez reports now from colombo, the opposition, some luggage, unable of a gaze, who you see members are just behind me here at this barricade. that is preventing protesters from going towards independence square, the sort of monument of independence here, inter lanka. as you can see,
12:24 pm
there's basically a bank of police. there's military and 3rd special task force ah personnel that are behind the line over here. these barricades have been constructed right across the road, all entry points, preventing and blocking off the independent square. and it's gotta go home. that's a rallying cry, obviously of the opposition. but even among the ordinary sher lumpkins, who are trying to organize to come together, despite the 36, our co feel that the government has announced that there are attempts for them to come together. that is just on the outskirts of colombo in a place called mariama. ordinary people have come together to protest despite the coffee and our bearing in mind that the government has really brought in all its arsenault to try and prevent these protests from happening. they have brought in the state of emergency, they have put in a curfew. they brought in an extraordinary gas at an additional one, preventing people from gathering in public places recreational grounds. but despite
12:25 pm
all of that, the anger and the frustration that to has being heard throughout the country seems to be drowning out all those efforts. and people are keen for their voices to be heard. france, president obama crawl as held his 1st election rally just days before the 1st round of voting. pole show a tight race between micron and far right. live rival marine le pen onto zeros. natasha battle reports often long term in the western suburbs parish. emanuel macro wants to win his 2nd term as francis president. and for now, opinion polls suggest that he's likely to succeed at a pack stadium outside paris. macro held the 1st rally of his campaign. the centrist leader promised more jobs tax cuts. and to continue with his pro, you agenda as something we are a european nation and proud to be one. we are no one's vassal. we pursue politics
12:26 pm
and diplomacy that independently. we talk to everyone all the time, that's what we do. france's role is not to give into divisions that parallel it's and i see other thought off my call said that these are challenging times the past 5 years of certainly tested his ability to handle a crisis. his diplomatic efforts over ukraine have played out well with most french voters, as has his management of the cove it pandemic. his government injected billions of dollars into the economy to protect businesses of jobs. already gave it ukraine. he's managed it all well, calmly. we can't complain and he will, when are you going to book us for future we are living and catastrophic times. i call it the war. he's a fair president, isn't even left. all right, but in the middle, and that's exactly what we need right now. my house is in the president to wife for now, but a reason days where is roy? oh, need a moving him as close the gap? quite need you. good to stay with living. good
12:27 pm
news. he energy is not a luxury or a waste, but a basic necessity. so as i proposed as far back as september, all lower tax on fuel heating, oil, gas, and electricity. the pens focused on rising prices as deflected the spotlight from anti immigration, anti islam agenda and widened her appeal. but some analysts say it's unlikely to be enough for a victory. for that good micron, social and economic track record is seen is pretty poor by some french people, but he's benefiting from what we call the raleigh round of the flank effect. what different parts of society support a leader at the time of grave international crisis? one week before the 1st round and frances election seems likely to be a re run of the 2017 race in which a 2nd round between macro and the pin pit centuries politics against rising populism. natasha butler, o. g 0 monta, voters in costa rica,
12:28 pm
said to decide who leave the country for the next 4 to half years in a row of presidential election. the candidates are a former president, a political outsider is promised to shake up the political system. but as to where isabel reports, there's no clear favorite it's considered to be the most stable country in central america, famous for its beautiful beaches and environmental protection. but in the past years, poverty and unemployment had been on the rice. the pandemic had a devastating impact on the vital tourism sector. something that most people are hoping and you precedent will be able to reverse. oh, come your call about my father. the next president should change everything because we are very poor. there's nothing here. so i hope that from here on, in whoever wins fights for this country, because we're costa ricans, we have to, oh, voters will elect a new president. the sunday,
12:29 pm
in what many say is the most polarized campaigning years. they'll be choosing between former center left president jose might be affiliated, who is promising to revive the economy, protect minority rights and the environment customer. so we're going to focus on the issues that are most important. and for us, of course, the main one is the revival of the economy and the creation of job opportunities in this country. he face his conservative rodeo chavez, a former world bank employee who promises to fight corruption and has based his campaign on attacking traditional politics in the country. he's promising to clean the house. ah, that's where we have a 75. your party that only now talks about corruption. it took them so long to realize that corruption is the worst because it's stealing from the people. both candidates are surrounded in controversy. former president figures faced accusations of corruption while he was in office. and chavez was accused of sexual
12:30 pm
harassment while working at the world bank a look as of the group shown there. the accusations of corruption against his party are real. and all these years we've seen mares and other politicians involved in scandals. with chavez, there was an investigation by the will bank and he had to resign marines sanctions from the will bank. both candidates deny the allegations. many voters here think the candidates and offer are the worst choice they could have. and the hope is that whoever wins will be able to bring back economic growth. there is, i will, i'll to cedar. ah, it's good to be with us. hello adrian. so they can hear it though, how the headlines are 0. pakistan is all the new election in the next 90 days. the country's president has dissolved parliament on the advice of private the same ron con. earlier the deputy speaker.
