season now, and it's like to rein anywhere. so the focus big showers in the paul, maybe the northern part of india, some in pakistan, they been coming in going and more recently we've seen something formed just off the southern coast. so although it looks like light showers at the moment, just come across towards a man there, a big potential shout here to los to pakistan. though it dry cats are official airline of the journey beneath the hype of english football lies in elicit market for the rich and powerful i'm one of the leading undercover al jazeera investigative unit exposes the inner workings and key players in the murky underbelly of football finance. if a party to sell something like what a magician has been said that you can make elephant disappear. i have many other things like life brazen example. i think the men who sell football on al jazeera

2:16 pm
she knew she was speaker a parliament and told was dissolved last year by the president. we've been accused by for testers of mounting a power graph. sure. like us parliament has been meeting colombo, where it's now a 3 way race for the presidency. a list of candidates has been presented to m. p.

2:17 pm
but just before the nominations were handed over, we heard that the opposition leader was withdrawing from the rest. the reason he said was that he and his party, the s g b, had decided to support the candidacy of dallas, alabama. alabama is basically a fairly senior politician, part of the sort of parent party that then evolved into the roger box that got a faction a lead s l p. p. a dallas. i'm sort of was sideline due to the time of the roger boxes. he's, he's not obviously as a cat, his magic as mine, the larger boxes, forceful, but he does have a silent support. what we're hearing from the sergeant ray mendoza camp is that the reason for him withdrawing is that there is an agreement that has been reached between sergeant ray madison, dallas, alabama, basically that subject rim without a will back. i'll happy rumors bid for presidency on the basis that when,
2:18 pm
if and when he becomes president, he would then call on sergeant rema dasa to form a government and make him prime minister. meanwhile, the acting president, runner, vicar, messina, are basically expect that support of the s l p p, but all is not. are sort of well there either. so this is the background in which that election in parliament will take place on wednesday. through one comes former president got a buyer of the boxes being blamed for banning imports of chemical fertilizer. and so that resulted in brace production being cut in half, pushing a country to the brink of a food emergency stuff. austin reports from candy where she's been speaking to farmers. their body feels look lush and green, but in reality these farmers are struggling on may 6 last year. they were forced to go organic overnight and production has plummeted since one going to the other. now
2:19 pm
i am vase the people of using huge problems. now gumaro mega stan, i lost his job as a construction worker of the prices of cement skyrocketed. all he and his family have is a few petty fields to feed themselves by buying expensive fertilizer on the black market. he hopes to increase production monthly dinner. i'm working so hard, but it feels as if it isn't also nothing. but the government gave us organ fertilizer, but it's not a good good fertilizer. we got a lot of right. but now it's just a fraction of handle. before i bought a good deal, i, my harvest went down with 50 percent off on 6 months. after did romantic decision, the government lifted the ban by then the country was already in its worst economic crisis since its independence 70 years ago. this is one of the painful legacies of former profit and go to biology box has policies. the agricultural sector has
2:20 pm
nearly collapsed in just 3 years. 3 longer that long been an export of rice. it's now being forced to import their staple food. the imports are costing the country dearly here in the hills around candy, sweet lanka, 2nd largest city. all of the country's current crises come together to take their rise and vegetables to the market. farmers need fuel, which is in short supply. those who are lucky enough to find fuel to buy, find a markets nearly empty because traders and bias phase, a lack of fuel to blow by hand. and we can't rely on the business. and even if you manage to bring $500.00 kilos of vegetables from farms here, there are no customers to buy it and the price has gone up, for example, $500.00 kilo at the end of the day. i'm forced to sell for 200. i keep losing money and the intended professor mar omby was sacked as a government advisor after the warranty. import band was a recipe for disaster. some men made disaster very unfortunately, it's too late,
2:21 pm
but still we have some for that. we are in the this is not going to fail because because, i mean, nobody should get that impression. right. they are all parallel lines, but we are looking at countries for security, not a foot secretary of the small group of people. he says, the massively grown rise will run out in a few months, leaving whoever takes over as president, a massive problem, how to pay for imported rise to prevent a humanitarian disaster. when the government has run out of fallen, currency steadfast and al jazeera candy re lanka, forest johnson has chaired his last cabinet meeting before stepping down. as prime minister, johnson announced his resignation earlier this month when dozens of ministers step down following a series of scandals. he defended his government handling of the coven, 1900 pandemic, and the economy. conservative party and peace are holding a series of votes to elect a new leader. johnson will continue caretaker prime minister until the new leader

's of the party are still having this say in a campaign that has been at turns bitter with personal animosities on full display, revealing deep divides within the party. soon as the former chancellor is the leader, he has been throughout and he's more or less assured now of making it through to
2:23 pm
the final 2 will be knowing that he is not a favorite among the membership. so he could struggle in that final vote to big names on the parties, right. let's trust the foreign secretary and can be based off the former qualities minister. she may be knocked out on tuesday. the relative unknown, of course, is penny mordant trade minister, who is relatively untainted by association with boris johnson and the scandals of the last few months. all for campaigns fighting quite viciously, quite fascinatingly for every available m p 's vote. and at this moment, all 4 have at least a viable route to the top. so it's all pretty unset, the threat of political unrest as looming over can you once more as it prepares to vote next month general election. but grassroots initiatives are trying to discourage potential violence during the vote. catherine, sorry reports from my robi most of these people in the room
