7:03 am
share of the vote in a french election, but her path to the presidency was blocked again by a republican front. in other words, many voters who supported other candidates in the 1st round voted this time to keep le pen out, let back in it, but to death is we. the game is not over since in 3 weeks time we will have the legislative elections. ah, that is we know, or a distortion of the political trend and create a risk of a manual macro. concentrating all executive and legislative powers. john lew, melanie shown the far left presidential candidate, took just one percent less of the vote than the pen in the 1st round. he wants his party, france on bowed to win enough support in the legislative elections. the macro is forced to appoint him prime minister yard do had to all of you, i say, do not resign yourself. on the contrary, go candidly and completely into the action has on democracy. could once again give
7:04 am
us the means to change direction, the war and new crane and the rising cost of living were main concerns for french voters. both issues will likely dominate the start of microns 2nd term. that probably won't be much like grace period for the president, as usual on the left, many aluminum one voted for him, reluctant, her microns from her to raise the retirement age really to easy to hire and fire workers and reform unemployment benefits for protocols. as god is 1st here, i think this could erupt again, bernice went out as if they've been isolated, protest by far left groups against microns victory. right police medina, news t gans to disperse. demonstrate is in paris. it was similar things in the northwest and city of re, a crohn's centrist policies have attracted criticism from both far left and far right groups. nicholas tanza is a guest professor of government and political theory at sciences po,

7:17 am
expected to hear the verdict in the 1st of multiple corruption trials, said she was arrested by the army when it seized power more than a year ago. she is accused of influencing the 2020 vote to win and 2nd term of office. the more on the story. let's bring in florence louis. he joins us from hello. hello there, florence. since being forced from power la c. she has been charged with multiple offences. so what's the significance of this particular verdict? while this is the 1st of several corruption trials she faces, and for this case, there is a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison that carries a much heavier than the other cases. and the other trials i have gone on against, they were for relatively minor offenses with much short, her maximum prison terms. and she has been found guilty in those cases ranging from possessing on license walkie talkies to beaching corona virus,
7:18 am
ruth and rather sadly, she was sentenced to prison in those cases. for many people watching the case are expecting a guilty verdict as well. now in this particular case, she is accused of having received bribe from a former yang, gone chief minister. his name is pure, maintain, and he was considered a process of offensive. she considered by some to be a possible successor. now, a few months, a few weeks after the cool that he appeared in a video broadcast on military run tv, saying that he had given gold and us dollars to on time to g as bribes. and in october last year he testified in court. now at the time where did the video appeared, many people had denounced it as fake, but then he appeared in court in october and so he seen as a key witness in this case. and many people are expecting on fancy g to be found guilty. partly because of this, but also partly because of the way the other trials have been conducted as well. the way the june has conducted the other trials. of course,
7:19 am
many people have also denounced the cases against all senses as politically motivated and designed by the june test to ensure that she cannot stage a politically a political come back. florence talk us for the background to all of the in the turmoil me. and mine's been facing since that crew that you mentioned 14 months ago . so there has been and now what started really as the opposition to the didn't really evident the qu, started as a non violent protest. but it since gone on to become an armed resistance. and many analysts say it's now descended into a civil war in the country. now, it has been a year since the since the association of southeast asian nations broken a piece deal, but non ma, so far has been kept to any part of it piece deal. and many people are saying that many analysts are saying that the chances of peace in that country is becoming very
7:20 am
unlikely known. despite the military having more alms, having more personnel is to put down the armed resistance. and this on resistance, they were initially made up of non violent protested who taken part in protest, but who had been moved to take up arms after watching how the military have used lethal force to put down protest. and not only that, many ethnic armies have now thrown that support behind this newly formed militia group and cove who call themselves the people's defense forces. so now i'm seeing is the senior general minute lang, perhaps in an attempt to divide and conquer, making a peace overture to the ethnic armies. now these armed groups have been engaged in arms struggle for many decades against the myanmar government them in my military, the fighting for more autonomy. but now perhaps, me know, hang it perhaps is a new strategy. he's offered these armed groups, a chance to sit down and talk. there's no indication how they will respond with at least one group saying it's too early to comment. and there's also no indication
7:21 am
that the people's defense force is going to give up the struggle, which is more. you've got many analysts saying they expect the conflict in young to go on for years or i think you're right. he is down that break, breaking down for us florence louis live for us in color pull elections in slovenia. i have delivered a shock and a new prime minister, the environmentalist party of political new come a rabbit, won the most votes and he's now expected to form a coalition government account so far has he's party on about 34 percent of the vote compared to 24, for the conservative, liberal in democratic driving up had to make his victory speech from isolation at home on the contracting close of 19 my badge is in this live any capital louisiana . this was supposed to be a tie through between the robert robert from freedom movement and prime minister, the honest shot bought robert go up on in
7:22 am
a landslide. one of the reasons is that he has a lot of new orders who weren't went to the election before. on the other hand, pianist, the answer was criticized for suppressing media for suppressing civil society and organization. so civil society are going into the 3 selling people for 12. so the very high turn out is one of the key issues in the collections in 2018. there was a 53 percent walters coming out. now it's very close to 70 percent. if we expect that the rubber to go up really for my government, which other left in parties on the other hand, yana sasha, was staying a position. he's a political veteran. he's. he will be waiting for his next chance. he was prime minister for 3 times and he couldn't do it the 4th time. so we are expecting that
