5:07 am
a country of $200000000.00 plus people. so a few 1000, are you in 100000 people to being out on the street? isn't i difficult to imagine? ah, mister khan has lost the majority in the parliament, but he does have support among the pakistani or willis. and there is all these been widespread support within pakistan or anti american anti vista, are ceilings and saw getting people out on the streets are in the name of protesting against the united states. is not new. it is actually quite old. but mister con himself has limited of it out of it. and you will see that in the upcoming elections. so what do you think m ron cons legacy will be then in terms of the economy and indeed foreign policy initiatives? i would say that mr. con has been one of the worst prime ministers for pakistan when it comes to domestic politics, economics, and foreign policy. almost every country in the world is af, sit in pakistan,
5:08 am
whether it is the middle eastern countries, are, it is countries in the west, united states and europe. and pakistan's neighbors are, comes to economy or the pakistan economies flailing. ah, the ruby has touched its worst. are in decades ah, there's all sort of, you know, bed that the economy needs money, but the i m f is not willing to release the next tranche. and all of this is because of mister cons policies and his politics. and finally, the country is more polarized today than it was ever even in the preceding few decades. all of this is a legacy of mr. ron con. so given what you say then, who is likely to take over the reins and what would they need to bring for the future of pakistan? so immediately i believe, to morrow sometime on monday, mister shabba, sherry of the b m l m r will be elected prime minister by the majority in the
5:09 am
parliament. he will, however, have to conduct elections within next few months. maybe sometime later this year, i asked for what the supreme court has said, ah, he will have a tough time as prime minister, because he will need to not only repair relations with other countries, he will also need to do something to stabilize the economy. and mr. conn and his rhetoric will, has hurt both of these. so let, let swapped in mr. shabba, should he be able to stabilize the economy a little bit and improve foreign relations and been planned for an set of conduct the upcoming elections in fall this year. which, which should then give augustine, hopefully, a stable government right now. it will be a coalition government of the 2 largest parties in our, in the parliament, the p. m l n p v p in smaller parties, hopefully begin. so begin last for the next few months and conduct some politics and policies which will help the country and the people. okay,

5:17 am
at least. so according to the latest numbers we've had on monday more than $25000.00 cases, nor said and breed that brings a total in shanghai since the beginning of march, to more than $200000.00 cases of the on the cross variance. now, here in china, the commercial center of shanghai, the biggest city here in this country remains the epi center of the worst outbreak we've seen in china since the beginning of the pandemic. and at least 262-5226 1000000 people remained under strict locked out. and here in china, the vast majority of cases that all being discovered, at least in shanghai, a symptomatic that people with no symptoms or mild symptoms. but still, the government insists in putting on everybody into quarantine centers and has been suggestions that people should be allowed to warranty at home. but no aging is doubling down on this 62 centers at least have them set up across this issue more than 38000 support medical stuff have been sent in the to help with that effort.
5:18 am
and people are really starting to lose the patients with this very strict, heavy handed approach. as we've just seen, there been many complaints widespread throughout the city of people not being able to access enough food, not getting access to urgent and necessary medical supplies. medical treatment for other illnesses as well. now the government says that they are working to improve that they've brought, for example, thousands of delivery men and people to work on the just sticks to help with that. but people living in shanghai say those improvement are very patchy and uneven, and in some areas things have gotten worse instead of getting better. and while all of this is happening and govern is continuing to work to sense that any social media posts of any protest already criticisms of the government. ok, yeah. christina, you are in beijing. thank you very much for that update. mexicans
5:19 am
have been deciding whether president, undress, manuel lopez, over a door should stay or go in an unprecedented referendum cold by the president himself. he says the recall vote is vital to confirm his democratic mandate. proponents, quote it a waste of money on well apollo reports mexican citizens took to the poles on sunday for a 1st ever national referendum to decide the political fate of president and this manuel nope, is overt other. outside this polling station in mexico city, many seemed eager to cast their votes, no mass in fort phantom. i think the most important thing is that this exercise will keep happening in the future. i independent of this president in the future. this will be an opportunity that citizens didn't have in the past, but okay, is i think it's good and positive. it makes our society politically active and that's a valuable thing. oh, the referendum on the presidency is
5:20 am
a divisive topic in mexico. one that has sparked demonstrations both for and against. some critics are calling the referendum unnecessary, given that president lopez over about already has a nearly 60 percent approval rating. others have argued the referendum is being manipulated by president lopez, but others party to rally supporters ahead of the next presidential election in 2024 in the state will say so long. rarely, in this process rule set by congress imply there cannot be a campaign by the president, nor can public resources be used for his ramifications. nevertheless, what we have seen are public servants from the present party at every level is basically campaigning for it. and some have even argued the vote could open the door to removing term limits in a country where presidents are only allowed to serve a single 6 year mandate outside of the political debate. however, many social scholars have argued the new referendum process is ultimately a good thing for mexican democracy. the 8th that yielded as he would as it but it's
5:21 am
eat bassoon. so this and other forms of citizen participation are important and necessary as we confront the crisis of democracies. these mechanisms of direct democracy should serve to empower citizens in the public space and then the decision making processes. a recent national survey suggest that only as much as 27 percent of eligible voters will participate in the recall referendum for below the 40 percent needed for the results to be binding. president lopez, obadiah lord, however, has bound to respect the outcome of the referendum and resign if he receives less than 50 percent of votes, regardless of voter turnout. though polls have now closed election, official se could still take several days for the official count to be announced. manuel apollo al jazeera mexico city. let's bring in robin. it has been out. he's a professor at the national university of mexico and joins us by skype from mexico
5:22 am
city. thanks for being with us here. what was the question is, why did the president feel he had to call for this unusual vote in the 1st place is really strange. this exercise, oh father, regretting referendum because the present don't need it. here he carries a lot of support at 60 cent per cent of the population right now. we support the prescient and many political analysts said that this is a waste of money. on the one hand and the supporters of the present there, they said that this isn't, this is necessary to put her additional so, but for the present to have a more and more power to change the constitution, etc. and all the analysts are, are worry about what that of the realization of the president not only knows because she the lineage in real terms this in a referendum. but she organized that and brister all day the a little early citizens to do that. or do we have an inkling as yet on what the
5:23 am
outcome of the referendum might actually be there? well, they'll come is about 20 or 25 percent of the of the complete people do the job. the boat will warbler a friend because he is today. sunday is the beginning of the the, the hollywood. an in mexico is the said, we have a week for holidays, for other people and only knows why the present is just this day door. and as this exercise, but the re, uh, the real issue is, is a waste of money or not a will see you in this see in this week what was happening with the referendum now with the real. and that the hooking will do the bolts and do we know what the turn out was and if so, what does it say about the voters views on this unusual move isn't
5:24 am
usual, isn't new exercise. now, in mexico, only we have elections each it is 60 years for the president of our will don't have for election of the president. and some people said that this is the 1st step to go to the reelection. and many people don't like these. and if he is supportive, of course, they want it. okay, rout vinitez. men are professor at the national university of mexico. thank you very much and if your insights good night my now on the u. s. a murder charge against a woman accused of self inducing, an abortion is to be dropped. a texas district attorney says the woman is exempt from the prosecution under the states strict and her portion laws. last year, protests broke out in texas soft measures came into effect, including a ban on women terminating and pregnancy, as early as 6 weeks. or chris adelson is an assistant professor of
5:25 am
a government at the american university school of public affairs. he expects abortion rights to be further weakened in the coming months. i think what's more significant than the decision is the fact that this one was arrested that she was held for 2 days. she was only release initially because an organization paid bill for her. there is no law in texas that actually makes it a crime for women to terminate or pregnancy. the law you mentioned provides for civil penalties. i think this sends a very chilling message to women in texas and another state who may soon be in a similar situation. not having access to legal worship, i'm assuming that united states supreme court will either completely overrule roe v wade, which is already actually been eroded. it's part of it was already taken when 190200 . this is called printed versus casey, or that the court will put additional holes in review with it's not clear that one of them, but i think it's a safe bet that will happen if it does happen. i think many americans are not
5:26 am
prepared for what that will mean for those of us who grew up united states after review, when i was born in 971, we heard stories about women before 973 remoe was decided who would get worse and so called back alley abortions from people who are not doctors who are and they often got very ill or even died from this the texas. i've already made it illegal, not a crime, but illegal for women to get abortions after about 6 weeks. one of the things i've been wondering about is, what are women in texas doing? and we seem to be getting some information. it's not that they're necessarily not getting abortions anymore. they just maybe get abortions that are not safe. and that may be a story that becomes more widespread. united states depending what the supreme court does for testers, in sri lanka, calling on the president to resign. oh, wow. oh say dame, it goes right back for the worst economic crisis since independence from britain in 1948 to the kids have had to struggle with months of food and few shortages and
