presidential election and the death of a woman during childbirth, sparks anger in senegal, drawing attention to the shortage of doctors and basic medical ah, are so a former security chief you lead a crackdown pro democracy protest. this is hong kong new leader, john lee was the only candidate in the race to succeed carry lamb. his chief executive, he was chosen by a committee of about 1500 people, vetted by beijing. lee was the head of security during the 2019 mass protests and is under us sanctions. he says he wants to unify society and make hong kong more competitive. having restored order from chaos, it is high time. the hong kong starts a new chapter of developments, a chapter that will be geared towards greater thrust purity. for all we are
11:02 am
at a time of great opportunities as well as challenges hands. it is imperative that we commit to our results oriented work culture uniting all sectors of the community and starting a new chapter for hong kong together. and it's in our from adrian brown who has more than the results from hong kong. absolutely at this result was never in doubt . john lee was the sole candidate in this election. he secured 1416 votes. 98 percent, turn out. john lee has been speaking during the past few minutes. he says, this is a joyful ho a day for hong kong. he says it is the red cross international smile day, which was another reason to be happy as to what sort of chief executive he'll make . well, the coming weeks and months will tell, but john lee is certainly
11:03 am
a man who has the backing the support of beijing. otherwise he wouldn't be in that position. now. as for the people of hong kong, well of course, this was supposed to be one of those occasions where they chose their chief executive. it was supposed to happen in 2017. it hasn't happened now. it didn't happen then. and i guess the question is whether this model is the way that you know, future hong kong leaders are going to be chosen. john lee, as i say, is a man who is not just the former security chief here. he was also a courier policeman. he was in the force for more than 40 years, so he is a man that knows the security situation here in hong kong. inside out, he played a very decisive role in suppressing the pro democracy protests in 2019. he sanctioned the use of tear gas. he sanctioned the use of rubber bullets your so sanctioned. on occasion, the use of live rounds to disperse crowds. i think beijing likes his very sort of tough guy image outside. there are thousands of police on duty. that is the
11:04 am
reflection, i think of the kind of redistribution of power that is going on in hong kong. this was hong kong government, essentially saying to beijing, look, we have everything under control. now we take this very seriously. joseph chang is a former professor political science at city university, hong kong, and he says there will be little room for descent in hong kong with lee in charge. in practice, it will mean that there will be no tolerance of an opposition of pro democracy political parties. in fact, they have not been taking part in this action process. they refuse to take part, yet it's obvious that there are no checks and balances and there will nightly be a 3rd of d. t ration in the will of law situation are in the tolerance for independent media and for the activities of civil society

11:07 am
operations. led by the united nations. taken to a nearby village away from the shelling which the fate of crane fighters still in still works. it's unclear if president vladimir putin will be able to declare victory. mary pulled in time for may 9th, a day where russia celebrates the soviet union's world war to victory over the nazis. i said vague, i da 0 woman will in the east ukrainian forces continue to fight back. they been using long range howitzers to shell russian targets in the khaki region. the artillery weapons have been supplied by the united states and by germany. earlier on saturday, ukraine said russia targeted 3 bridges to slow the ukrainian counter offensive. the director of the c, i a says that he is convinced of vladimir putin is strengthening his resolve for, for the war and ukraine. william burn says, despite resistance from ukrainian forces, the russian president is not willing to lose. he added putin has been,
11:08 am
as he called it, strewing for years and is motivated by grievance ambition and insecurity. i think he's in a frame of mind in which he doesn't believe he can afford to lose. so the stakes are quite high in this phase, and in, in the east of ukraine. as you know, ukraine's military was support, you know, from the west continues to resist. but i, i don't think this means that, you know, putin is, is deterred at this point because he staked so much on the choice that he made to launch this invasion that i think he's convinced right now, the doubling down still will enable him to make progress well, let's say for mach fitzpatrick, houston associate fellow at the international institute for strategic studies. and he says russia will keep everything on the table to achieve its military objectives, including nuclear weapons,
11:09 am
and really does not want to lose. but he's not going to win for sure. ukraine is just fighting back so fiercely and with more and more support from the west. i don't think goodness going to win. but what does it mean that he can't lose? does he have to redefine his objectives? and if he is doubling down now, just if the loses, what happens? then we'll quadruple down and then use nuclear weapons. i'm quite worried about that. and the problem i see is that if russia doubled down in the don't boss in southern ukraine and does not achieve his military objectives, then what will he do when he turned to look it over? i don't think we can rule it out. you know, we were all surprised when launched this invasion. well hey, listen, surprised. they knew about it, but still it was the pricing and i just wouldn't rule out the possible use of nuclear weapons. you know, obviously united states cannot be seen to be so involved in this war and directly targeting russian generals. i mean that, that is really, it's not just that it's
11:10 am
a provocation that could escalate matters, but it displays into russia sensitive grievance. we don't need to do that now, russia versus the grievance of being attacked and prevailed upon is so out of line . but still you have to see the other side psychological reasoning and that play into the u. s. first lady's meeting, ukrainian refugees and humanitarian workers. in slovakia, jill biden is on day 3, even eastern european trip. she visited a 24 hour a center co should say, hearing the stories of families who fled the war. so back year has taken in almost 400000 ukrainian refugees. united nation says about $6000000.00 people in total. i've left the country. voters in the philippines are preparing for an election, described as the most important in its history. polls predict to victory for ferdinand. marcus junior, the son of a former president who was acid in a popular uprising back in 1986. he's up against a vice president, many of roberto,

11:13 am
they've not been busted or encouraged to attend by their community leaders or by village heads. and if you look at the way people have been going volunteers, rob happened going from house to house to canvas for votes for her. there is a huge sense of optimism among her support is that she could still win elections on monday, but she does face a huge uphill battle for several reasons. she is a victim of a disinformation campaign. of fact checking group says that there had been a lot of social media posts. there are simply untrue her quotes, mangled, distorted, to make her seem unintelligent. she has been accused of being a communist. and this is a very common tactic in the philippines to discredit political opponents. now in contrast, frontrunner ferdinand marco's junior has benefits mostly from misleading, but positive post on social media. so his campaign, they've been able to whitewash his father's rule as a time of peace and prosperity when in fact it was full of could talk, receipt,
11:14 am
nepotism, and human rights abuses. now the other thing standing in her way is the alliance that mar cause junior has formed with powerful dynasties in the philippines, which still hold a lot of sway among voters. he's formed alliance and alliance with the powerful royal family. the estrada's and the 2 territories which include incumbent president, rodrigo detective, and his daughter, sarah, who is running for position of vice president. so these families, despite their rather murky track record, they still have a strong support base and their support is expected to deliver votes for marcos junior. ahead here now does era lead to silva has lost his bed to brazil's presidency. can he unseat incumbent? john bolton are. oh, he's done it again. we meet a shipper he's beaten, his own record for scaling the world. ah,
