12:03 am
he didn't have any more the support of the police anymore and then he didn't have the support of the army you know how the support of the bolivian workers a century ago which has been a sector that has been very very important for him to us supporting for a very long time so today they said if ever morale is. step aside and it can give the stupid libya we agree that they will run this is the life of the power so i think i think that that was a very different because i couldn't have any choice now that this sitting up us is so is that huge party everyone wants to freeze in the streets partying celebrating this moment and that's what you what you hear are fireworks up to the protestors riot so everyone celebrating what does this mean for bolivia. it means political change i mean everybody has been in power for 14 years and now

12:05 am
anti-government protesters and police in baghdad on sunday rights group amnesty international says iraq's crackdown on the protests has descended into a bloodbath in the southern city of nasiriyah 3 protesters were shot dead by police trying to disperse them. romania's presidential election is set to go to a runoff after voting on sunday exit polls put incumbent president klaus your highness in the lead with nearly 40 percent of votes he's likely to face left leaning challenger viru nick vieira. in the 2nd round. police in hong kong have 5 here gas to break up anti-government demonstrations activists were same blocking roads and vandalizing sites around the city this is the 24th consecutive weekend of protests with demonstrators calling for democratic reforms and an inquiry into police violence. is to spain now where results show the ruling socialist party of acting prime minister pedro sanchez gaining most
12:06 am
seats on the ballot doesn't give sanchez the majority he needs to form a stable government and in the plaiting the country's political deadlock the conservative people's party got the 2nd largest share of the voters with the right wing vox party coming in 3rd with an doubling its states since the last election in april but that. data correspondent lisa lewis is at the headquarters of spain's socialist party in madrid lisa the ruling socialist party looks set to win the most sate again for short of a majority what's the move there. well absolutely the mood here is rather gloomy this socialist party was hoping to increase its share of seats in the parliament looks like they're likely that they will lose a few of their seats and it will get even more complicated complicated for them to form a government now pedro sanchez plan the interim prime minister's plan was apparently to form a minority government and his argument was if he if he increased his share then
12:07 am
other parties would have to support him now if he loses a few of the seats he's got less arguments to say you know you really need to give me your support but he will now have to talk to a lot of different parties before hand over 2 or 3 national honors in parliament that had quite a large share of it and if he had found an agreement with them it would have been fine now he needs to bring in about 6 or 7 different parties and that would be incredibly difficult because none of these parties will give their support for free really so you will have to negotiate with them and the vox party was expected to do well and looks like they have more than doubled their states why why's that. yeah absolutely well it looks like the sentence on the catalans happened just about 4 weeks ago was really in their favor these savages were sentenced to 2 years long prison sentences and then after wards there were riots in the region clashes between independence supporters and the police and that has really played into the
12:08 am
hand of books because rocks has been saying we need to clamp down on them we could need to crash that revolt and we need to suspend regions autonomy status and other passengers have actually followed suit and say yeah we need to really be tough with them however the socialist party has had a somehow more conciliatory approach they've been saying you know yes we need to be tough but at the same time we need to be talking to them because in their interest it's actually in their interest to be a bit softer to the cutter catalans because they normally gain quite a high share of the vote in that region catalonia decides on 48 of the 350 seats in parliament and the socialists were determined to get a share of that so they didn't have as tough a stance as walks or other parties and that's what had actually them lose support in the rest of the country and that's why also one of the big reasons why their share of the vote has gone down so it really looks as though spain's heading for
12:09 am
more political paralysis. absolutely it's very difficult to see how to get out of this political deadlock you know spanish parties really need to start learning how to form a coalition that's something that's very normal in other countries such as germany but it's very difficult to see how this can work with such a fragmented parliament here in spain at the p.p. the center right party and the socialist center left party in the past were able to form a coalition on their own you know they had 50 percent of the vote more up more than 50 percent almost 50 percent and they just need. to bring in a few seeds a few other parties into smaller parties now they really need to form a growing grand coalition next to make this work and they really too will need to learn that craft so very much a wait and see situated situation lisa lewis at the headquarters of spain's socialist party in madrid thanks very much. celebrations for the 30th anniversary
