1:00 pm
ah with oh, i wish fishing and on the journey. ah, this is al jazeera ah, hello rodney barker, this is the news i live from doha,
1:01 pm
coming up in the next 60 minutes for lancaster parliament, lex ronald, victor. i'm a singer as president of the midst of a political and economic crisis. the decision has cause outrage in colombo would protest is gathering on the steps of the parliament building firefighters in western europe, butler, heat wave, and strong winds as they try to extinguish wildfires. it's lease prime minister tries to salvage his coalition government after it was pushed to the brink of collapse. i'm satisfied with sports, including action from the world athletic championships, brazil's alison dawson, forsakes gold in the men's 400 meter hurdles on the day of upsets in eugene. ah hello, we begin this news in sir lanka where the parliament is elected ronelle vick ricker,
1:02 pm
a singer as the new president a we can of to go to buy a raja packs of fled and then resigned for grandma singer was serving as interim president after mass protest force roger packs of the step down. the 6 time premier will finish the remaining 2 years of his predecessors term. but he is unpopular with protesters. you see him as partly responsible for, for like his economic crisis ratty. it's elena valerie. and where it is not necessary to say how hard the country's economic condition is, we have to embark on a new program to go forward and we have to work together to do that. the i'm thankful to the other 2 candidates. i invite them to work with me for the development of the country and with our being when, when el fernandez joins his live now from colombo manella despite the protest is not wanting vick rema singer to be in this position. he's taken the top jaw of what's the response there and what's vic, we're missing a promising to do to put the country's economy back on track.
1:03 pm
it's not a very happy reactions from the general populace and the protest as many of them who have camped here or just outside this building. i'm here at the president shows secondary, the president's office outside which for 3 long months there was a concerted campaign 1st to send home, go toby roger boxer as president when he did not heed those cause. we saw him literally being chased out of office. he had to flee the country and then run a vicar missing a who he had brought in as the prime minister, as now assumed the top job of the land. because he has been voted in by a majority of the parliamentarians, a 134 to 82 at that secret ballot. but for people what they see is the parliamentarians have not heeded the will of the people. they said they have very clearly indicated that they have no confidence in run novick promising her who was
1:04 pm
in an acting capacity after the departure of got up a roger boxer. and they had urged the parliamentarians as they went into that session this morning to reflect the views of the people, the dissatisfaction with run over promising her and that entire brigade of people that they said we're mainly looking after the interests of the roger boxes. so even here we don't have massive numbers just yet, but those here at the protest site, i have had a meeting that come together. they've asked people to rally literally in this location. we've seen small pockets of people coming through and getting together. now i have with me a, one of the protesters who's been with this campaign right through modular summer, saker modular. why don't you tell me what the key sort of reaction is to the appointment of runner vicar missing her? or we simply do not accept his appointment as the president or simply because of a 2 man visas of unease. he's the defender of a garage box or family of the 2nd reason is he doesn't have a mandate to be
1:05 pm
a member of parliament at least. so we do not accept his appointment. the fact that he has been a basically voted in it is within the rules and if you like, i mean within the constitution. but obviously, as the people, the professors say, you don't accept it because this is not what you want. but how are you going to push back against us? what can you do? yeah, this, so this decision does not reflect the real will of the people in this country because the parliament are the election to place does not reflect the bill of the people either. so that is the main reason or you know, we, we do not accept a, the, a, the appointment this appointment at the same time. ah laker there if you are little become a singer, we have the d months. we have released the demands from online uh, from the protest us and so we are just waiting to see what his reaction about these
1:06 pm
are the demands as well. rather, the grimacing her has been described by some as the only man who is able to help she lanka, back on it's feet. obviously, a career politician, very astute with a lot of international experience, dealing with donors, the international community. and given the kind of current crisis, shalanda is facing, people have said to certain people that he might be on be the only man for this job to deal with this crisis situation. how would you respond if he was genuine? he could have releases the agreements a deeper former, but the president got arbitrage or puncture to the public. or if there was an agreement, if we knew that was the agreement, we could have responded at that point at amber at that point itself. but the, you know, we do not know what kind of a, an agreement that he has with this are longer a deposit done impediment. who is the of you who is the former ruling party. so
1:07 pm
that is, that is what we out think about you. thank you. and that was modular summoner, saker, one of the protests isn't, as we have seen. and what the protesters say is that they don't want run of improvising or in fact, one of the members of the 3rd party i spoke to last night, told me the election will be a battle between money and conscience. and looking at the result. you can see which has one renault many folks. michelle fernandez in the colombo are providing from secker, is a senior research for the center for policy alternatives. she says big ring singer is a season politician, but he will need to rely on roger paxis party for support. he seems to have got quite a significant support by getting 134 awards. so the members of parliament as decided that the next president should be iranian recro massena, they say is going against the cause and the demands of the protesters and abruptly . so it will be very interesting to see how the president will be able to move
1:08 pm
forward when there's real anger towards him. and i don't know how he's able going to be able to cover and in such a context. and he'll be promising, has served as prime minister 2 car garage pants and was then appointed acting precedent by go darby. raj said is no doubt that they the league to the raj about their family. now. dance said ronald, promising. he's a very c send. really. titian, so we'll see how he is able to govern. but we need to also remember in parliament, he only has one seating parliament. he will have to rely on the raj. a puck says political party that he says b. b, for any legislative reforms that he wants to push through handyman. so i suspect there will be influence from the raj about her family. what we will have to see is, what is the extent of that influence? he seems to have considerable support among the members of parliament in terms of
1:09 pm
getting this number to day. i'm and opposition on the other kennedy did dallas sell out there? i'm only getting 80 to so he he and at least at the election, ronnie re promising. i has received the support of a significant number of employees now would then translate to continuous support from the members of parliament. what he's legislative agenda. that is to be seen because this is very, very uncertain tidings where a member of precedent will have to re layer under political parties to get anything done. so we could see major push back in terms of his own proposals, not getting the support of parliament. and this might get to a steel made in argument. that is one dimension. we need to think about that. the
1:10 pm
other is whether he still will be able to rally around the public. he's extremely unpopular and he's ledge from as he has been question. so can he actually govern as the 8 president needs to see a polishing european heat wave is fueling wild fires and stretching emergency services. you k recorded it's highest temperature on tuesday, surpassing 40 degrees celsius for the 1st time. at least 34 locations of exceeded the previous national record. only 1700 firefighters are battling to contain 2 massive blazes, and southwest france. authority say a man has been arrested on suspicion of arson. fires have also broken out in italy, in the greek capital athens. more than 30 while fires are burning in spain, which is nearly 10 days into its heat wave. most of the country is on high alert. zane bas ravi is in spain's north western, some over a province where dozens of villages have been evacuated. the sound of salvation

every 2nd campus, the door, the town of tomorrow's, a key strategic location. the command and control center based here is coordinating air and ground operations throughout the castillo, known province. precious little rest for teams working around the clock to keep pace with wild fires in real time. this is my 25 year. has it ever been this bad? and no, of course. absolutely, no. it came up, change his very person. i'm busy questionnaires. related with that, right, we did wrote these fires have a pulse. the most danger firefighter say is the late afternoon. the hottest part of the day when the sun is highest and the winds are strong. this fires happening all across this part of spain, but these flames represent the kind of change in the profile of these wildfires.
1:13 pm
the fires are moving from the hill country down. they've burnt up all the fuel. they get fine in the hills and now they're looking for more fuel moving downwards towards more populated areas. as they put out one fire more come alive. climate change experts say has altered the behavior of wildfires. they now burn faster, hotter and longer. people living here say everything can't aspire, and you cannot trust the ground. zane basra, the ultra 0 tobacco and thousands of people in greece, had to flee the homes as far as birth near the capital athens cruiser on the slopes of mount pen tele battling flames, which are being fan by strong winds. at least 15 planes and 9 helicopters, the trying to douse the fires 25 kilometers north east of the greek capital would also jibari joins us now from brofy, which is just north of the capital. athens said dorothy,
1:14 pm
how serious is the situation where you are? well as the fire sir is now been put under control, this is of course a town in the valley region. you mentioned the town of draft, the which was engulfed by flames. on tuesday. we arrived here in the afternoon as we left the airport and we could see the smokes in this town and we drove to it towards that. and we did film what took place here. and we now see what has happened since then, according to officials who spoke to from the fire department. the main concern and the challenge they faced overnight was the high winds and the changing direction of the wind, which was helping the fires continue. and this now spread to, as you mentioned, the region just about 10 minutes drive north of here, behind the mountains, behind me of the deli region. and those flames continue as we speak because they have affecting nearly 30000 residents in that area. in this town,
1:15 pm
about 3500 residents were evacuated on tuesday afternoon. and as you can see, as there is very little activity going on right now, because it is still very much off limits to most of the residents, we have to ask for special permission to enter here and see what is the pause. what is the fire? the damage cause we also saw a number of homes that have been burned in this town. now they are nearly 500 firefighters and about a 125 trucks that are in working in this area, trying to control the situation. this is of course, one of the many fires that have been ongoing since the start of the fire season, according to the governments that is as of may 1st until july 14th, they've recorded new 2500 wildfires in greece. and of course, the hardest weeks have not even approached that that is in august. so there is certainly a concern about what is to come yes. dosage of are just north of the greek capital
1:16 pm
athens, the town of draft, many thanks. plenty more had on the news hour, including an energy crisis and bangladesh. forces the government to take drastic action will tell you why this award winning iranian filmmaker is facing a 6 year jail symptoms. and his sport, we catch up in a football fans and sannicolas the national team prepares to compete in the welcome . ah no news. italian prime minister mario draggy has told parliament he is prepared to stay on despite tendering his resignation last week. track he says he will remain in his post if the parties in his coalition are prepared to support him. prime minister announced he would step down after the populace. 5 star movement refused to back his coalition in a parliamentary confidence vote for president sergio matter. ella rejected his resignation. louis cars that are the only way forward if we want to stay together
1:17 pm
is to rebuild a fresh this government packs. courage, selflessness, incredibility. adam, rainiest, lie for us, say in rome on their son adam. will this sir speech she made by dragging just a short while ago impact on how the the senate votes later on wednesday? well, they were seeing some signs that it might just after the speech. you had the head of the p. d. one of the largest members of this unity government tweeting out that if we didn't know, we should vote for 5 days or a few days. so we definitely know now what, what is speech, what, what a leader we have. so clearly they're trying to push and get everyone on board. but just moments after that tweet from and recollected at leader of the p d. we spoke to a member of the 5 star movement here outside of parliament. and he told us, it really wasn't what that party was expecting again, for our viewers. the 5 star movement is this shrinking political party in italy
1:18 pm
that is playing this key role and did not vote in that confidence vote last week. so it's hard to tell how they will vote later in the evening here in rome, but there's a lot of pressure building for them to get on board draggy is extremely popular nationwide. and you see other members of this ruling coalition saying, let's just get this important work done. the we have to get on board. we need to support that. you get into 2023. solve some of the big problems at least facing and have elections then. whereas if he weren't to win a confidence vote and the government were to collapse, you would see a lot of uncertainty in the following months. would probably be an early election in the fall. the budget would be postponed, so many things that italy needs to solve would be intractable and probably hard to solve in that kind of political condition. we've either, we've already already heard of course, from the president who refused to accept druggies resignation. and in this speech, a drug of alluded to an out pouring of support, what sort of support does he come on nation?
1:19 pm
why do you think was fascinating to see in italy. something that's very, a typical and out of the ordinary. here you have some 2000 mayors across the country, signing on to say they support, but i use government, they want him to continue. you have a doctors who are now facing yet another spike in cobra. their organization coming out saying, we have a panoramic that continues to really rapidly and make it hard here. please continue . you have members of civil society, you have every day people, the plotters in some parts of italy on monday, were full, maybe not with tens of thousands, but with hundreds and thousands of people in different cities around the country saying, please stay. so you have something that's usually this kind of parliamentary deal kinda hashed out in the cloakroom of parliament in the senate, being voice instead by the public in the street. and that's clearly impacting the political players. are they know that the, the country and
1:20 pm
a rare moment of solidarity just wants you to continue? because they know he commands some respect, not just in italy, but across the whole continent and the use down to get some of these problems. solve those problems, include passing reforms that will allow lead to receive tens of billions more dollars in this recovery fund from the e u. they also know that he, they think they don't know. they think he's the guy to, to help italy face this inflation crisis that isn't just happening here, but making prices here very, very high and difficult for, for people here. so this is not normal to see this. so we're having people who watch politics, year for year in italy, tell us this is going to impact these political leaders. and if for whatever reason the government collapses, people going to be very angry that the politicians in the country couldn't save the government. that is pretty popular right now. i'm rainy in room. thank you very much. well, let's bring in cecilia. i'm a lotta who's an assistant professor of global politics at american university of
1:21 pm
rome. she's there now and join me live. is this unusual to see this outpouring of support for an italian leader? i read that ever been 63 governments in italy since 945. it sounds like affection for any leader in italy is short lived. yes, absolutely. so 1st of all, thank you for having me. i wouldn't qualify it as a not a sport to be fair. i mean many i'd be discussing this with many colleagues that actually numbers are not overwhelming manifestation of support. we're not so impressive. as some observers are actually portraying them, i think there is a problem and easily there is these long, you know, last thing, you know, long term crisis of, if you want of democracy, you know, democratic representation. that sometimes causes these kind of the course whereby, you know, there's a savior coming up, right? so driving a fee for trade by the press especially,
1:22 pm
but also by some of the public opinion as to say, you're going to fix it problems. i'm not so optimistic to be honest. the country has issues that are long term. so i completely agree that you know, having situation of political disability, the fall is highly undesirable for 3. but at the same time, political parties reactions. and they have to take responsibility for a policy. they cannot seem to delegate these function to, you know, whatever federal credit political leader may be called to fix the situation. now this course is, was initially triggered off to the coalition partners if i saw movement. so they wouldn't support the prime minister anymore. would you explain the dynamic within this power struggle? the ruling coalition?
1:23 pm
this brain was really clear from the very beginning of a druggist monday. he was called to be gross colleague, sean is a very broad calisha and there's just one party who did enjoy with enjoy and brothers, obviously. so there were many contradictions already, i think, within the scholarship. by the way, it is interesting to know that the only position party has been doing great in opinion polls, meaning that the support for tracking, for, you know, for drug and his government is not so overwhelming again, as you would seen from the outside. so as far as the movement is, you know, is going through an identity, crisis it off the loss, it lost the pieces, you know, the minister of foreign affairs region. you might have basically left the bus or movement. and he was one of the problem figures in the party, and it's really
1:24 pm
a party that lost its identity. you know, they won the election with, with an agenda, you know, based on transparency support to, you know, income for families. but then the sort of changed and they have that like to start losing pieces. right. and i think this crisis really on an example of identity, isis. sure. cecilia, i'm a sort, a lot of professor of global politics the american university. right. thanks for speaking to us in the news i ukrainian forces of damaged and important bridge soon, the southern curse on region. the russia has been using to deliver supplies to its troops. the temporary administration in the russia controlled region says key f struck the de ne pro river bridge with us supplied rockets. despite the damage, the crossing is still open. the bridge is one of only 2 that russia can use to supply or withdrawal forces to in the area. ukraine's president of dismissed the

1:27 pm
you know, the united nation, the is a big organization. avalon hassan is the leading organization right now. it's in charge of a distribution. so people are hoping that this will be something that the islamic emerett really take seriously and leads them to take some kind of real action because over the last 10 months, you know, even if there have been talks between the united nations in this law, mich, emery the fact that this 40 something page report exists seems to show some kind of a disconnect or some kind of a shortfall between both groups. still ahead on al jazeera, wherein students blue oil state where tribal fighting has left nearly a 100 people dead. in a matter of days, this travellers battle long queues at airports. we look at how we could be fly in the future and explore. we'll show you around mistake by one of baseball's biggest stalls last coming up with sar. ah,
