3:18 am
noteworthy because both candidates were very unpopular was always a case of the least unpopular of the 2 men was going to get it. well, it went to you and he then implemented a number of very controversial decisions before he even took office, which so his popularity plummet further. so he has the dubious distinction when he took office at his inauguration just over 3 weeks ago of being a, having the lowest approval rating of any newcomer. since then he's had something of a bounce back. he is enjoying, if you like her, the can't honeymoon period that president's often enjoy as there will be a task to see if he has regained some traction with a skeptical electorate, if you like. but he's also helped by the unpopularity of his opponents. the liberals here, the democratic party, and now they've had their own problems with controversial policies that they've been pushing in fighting between themselves over those policies. so you do have this interesting shift here and they political landscape of south korea 4 years ago
3:19 am
when they had these elections, the liberals who were in power at the time really were on something of a high that just had a successful winter olympic games. they had, you know, all of this at a dialogue going on between donald trump and kim jong on these are fabulous summits . all of that has now gone. so it would, will be very much a test, not just a views, popularity, but also a verdict on the state of the liberals. a here in south korea are at a rama pro lifers there in sol. rob, thank you. korean pop supergroup. bts has been at the white house to highlight crimes against asians and people at asian heritage in the us. the singers attended as youth ambassadors promoting a message of respect. i say they're devastated by a recent spate of hate crimes that also held a close meeting with president joe biden in the oval office. the years president, a new zealand prime minister have express concern about a security agreement between china and the solomon. i love during the meeting at
3:20 am
the white house, joe biden and jacinta are done discuss stepping up engagement with pacific island nations to counter china's growing influence. biden says the us wants to be a partner rather than dictate to the region. the chinese foreign minister is currently half way through a diplomatic tour of the pacific, hoping to deepen countries, ties that our white house correspondent kimberly huck. it was more it was the 1st oval office meeting between the u. s. president and new zealand prime minister, a chance for washington to counter china, is growing in fluids in the indo pacific region. but for new zealand, it was also an opportunity to express that when it comes to business, there are no loyalties. he had an exchange of use on the pacific currently very clear view on both sides that the pacific needs to determine end is determining its own rules of engagement and as partners we need to make sure that we're hearing
3:21 am
what via critical focus in areas of interest are for us to partner on and partnership is k, it is not a donor donate relationship and nor should it be. and i think that's the approach that i hear from the united states. it's certainly the approach of new zealand, regardless of who within the pacific were engaging with the meeting lasted roughly 90 minutes and included other topics like climate change, trade and even how the united states new zealand could cooperate in space. and that included the vice president. com la harrison, that conversation. but there was also the topic of gun control in light of the shooting that took place last week in texas. and how the united states could potentially bound assault weapons when it comes to that effort in new zealand. unlike the united states, the new zealand prime minister says that effort in new zealand was met with

3:23 am
metal, dozens of such sweeps of homeless encampments had been conducted in recent weeks in new york city. oh, homeless advocates say it's heavy handed and a waste of resources. how many cups were here? there was 2 vans of cops around the corner. troops responding to 2 homeless tends to do homeless people, intense that the amount of money that is spent every day on the sweeps on these raids, which is what they are can be $1.00 day can pay for a week's housing for everybody in this, in camp president joe biden recently announced new initiatives to combat homeless vis throughout the united states. it calls for among other things, more funding for affordable housing. but here in new york, the mayor eric adams says the 1st step is to clear homeless from the streets. and that's why he's ordered this sweeps, we have tolerated homelessness,
3:24 am
won't pass our brothers and sisters who are living in tents on the street. and we normalize it. homeless encampments have increasingly become a national issue from los angeles, san francisco, portland, to boston in new york. as the sweeps continue rest, talk about santa bell. so to this, a protest in opposition to them. oh, many fear the sweeps will force them back into homeless shelters, they say, are unsafe, i'm going to be facing homelessness sooner than i would not choose an option of the shelter. it's the worst place to put to human beings. every one is crowded. there that the conditions, all of that though, that the good, the cleansing us inside of the shelter with that many people is not up to standard . it's not an easy issue. one person's eyesore is another person's home. gabriel's ando al jazeera new york,
3:25 am
a phase 3 people have been killed and 5 hours. i'm missing after powerful storm hits. southern mexico agatha is the strongest hurricane our record to hit the southern pacific coast during the month of may. and boat winds and more than a 160 kilometers an hour and heavy rain flooding homes and washing away rose. the storm has weakened since moving inland. the speaker of lebanon's parliament for the past 30 years has been reelected, not b. barry was chosen by m p. 's and the 1st session of parliament following an election early this month before he was now devoted in m. p 's making that debut, marched to parliament, calling for change. and i had a report from. 4 it's a moment of change, the representatives of living on protest movement making their way to parliament. they walked past security forces, who once kept them out during massive demonstrations in recent years. it's the 1st
3:26 am
session of the newly elected legislature. and these 1st time m p 's are hoping to bring change to a decades old system. there is no democracy in lebanon. what the consultation and completion of the system. but we are here to leave for democrats in love on, on duty. unfortunately, on the right, we're gonna use any, any kind of compromises. compromises based on power sharing between the political establishment have long been how politics is done here? that's how parliamentary speaker to be. barry was re elected. he has been in the position for 3 decades and for many a symbol of a failed system, riddled with corruption. but this time it was different, very fail to get the endorsement of a majority and one with the limit of much of a blow. but symbolic benefit, i know the problem has to be a habit for those who are hoping for radical change that hasn't happened,
3:27 am
change in peace, couldn't win enough. see, the status quote didn't change and it's lebanese leaders who have been in power, who are expected to have the final say on what's next. so vote for a new speaker starts a constitutional process that includes the formation of a new government and in a few months, the election of a new president. but the current landscape in parliament, the lack of a clear cut majority means there could be protracted negotiations. an extended political vacuum won't help a state and an economy that has all that collapsed. the parliament have failed over the years to implement or undertake any economic reforms for the matter. and during the crisis, in fact, the parliament obstructed economic changes and economy could be forms. politicians are also accused of obstructing accountability for the baby port explosion that killed more than $200.00 people. 2 years ago, though, in the state killed my brother,
