7:02 pm
critics of the coalition alter boy and was quick to emphasize that the s.p. de waart rushed its decision on whether to stay in the coalition or not. to dissect this a little bit further i'm joined in the studio by political correspondent simon young simon thanks so quite a shock and now it's meant tell us a bit more about these candidates i think this is a small bombshell in german politics because these 2 new leaders of the s.p.d. are skeptical about whether it's a staying government with chancellor merkel and that's that's obviously key because if they decide to pull their party out of pressure because it's a pull out of that coalition that they're currently year they obviously that could mean an early election or early end of the era and go to medical so that's the key point the other thing is i suppose we go to a new era in general politics we've got a great karrenbauer in charge of the christian democrats now we've got another
7:03 pm
doubleback going to deal with norbert about a boy and he's. in the relatively unknown politicians and they've managed to push out a better known fine that's minister on our shoulders and his partner in this vote that was the s.p.d. membership saying you know we want to change the way the party is going forward so we could be saying a shake up quite so you know i mean. what we're hearing of the double barreled names are going to choke him a. boy on this yes he's going to he said he's not going to rush any decision about the coalition so ok she can we see that they could we see a chance that they would stay in the coalition well yeah i mean the leadership probably doesn't make that decision on its own what's happening the timetable is the next week and there's going to be a party conference a delegate called for its. which this decision of leadership is will be confirmed
7:04 pm
and those are be discussing points about the future strategy it's not clear exactly whether they'll hold the votes old whether to stay in the coalition but what these 2 new s.p.d. leaders of sadie's they would like to renegotiate the coalition agreement they have the s.p.d. and the miracles christian democrats and they would like to see a lot more the left wing policies in there and if they don't get that then the clear implication is that the party will pull out of this current government well all i. could see huge catastrophic changes in general politics in the coming months . simon thanks so much for coming in. but another german party the far right alternative to germany also elected new late is at a party conference in the city of brown try the pair include. a 44 year old house painted turned politician from eastern germany. as a compromise candidate who has support from right wing as well as the extreme right
7:05 pm
wing factions of the party and incumbent was re-elected. outside the conference whole large crowds protested against the party. germany's biggest opposition party in terms of parliamentary seats and its main focus now is to gain control of government. well they have his cheek chief political editor has been covering that party conference and sent this assessment. the f.t. was become more professional more stable more mainstream its new leadership team of old and new the professor from the west you know more in tune into local power from the east these 2 leaders will be able to deliver that too is so degree the hope is that the a of d. come the general elections and 2021 or earlier could be seen as a viable coalition option although the big tent parties rule that out for now but
7:06 pm
the very fact that john the leader of the extreme right wing of the a.f.p. welcomes both new leaders suggest that he too thinks that the extreme right can build a political home in the a if dean so over all this could once again be a further shift to the right. british police have identified the man who carried out friday's stabbing attack in london they said was 28 year old man can't know who killed 2 people on london bridge he was like a shot dead by police was convicted in 2012 of terrorism offenses and was released from prison about a year ago during a visit to the side of the stabbing british prime minister barak johnson expressed his opposition to the early release of convicted terrorists. onlookers captured the moment members of the public disarm an attacker on london bridge he was wearing
7:07 pm
a fake suicide bomb vest moments later the police shot him dead one of the bystanders who intervened told journalists what he saw. when we got there he was wielding 2 noise one was sort of duct taped to his hand so all i could do was walk to the guards are sort of holding down a sort of putting him to the ground. you know kind of try to stop. because although it could on his restaurant release the noise as it were in a song so kick an odd way police search for evidence of the attackers house in a town 250 kilometers north of the capital the 28 year old suspect was mccann had been serving time for terrorism offenses until last year he was released early before he had served half his prison sentence he was allowed to walk free after agreeing to wear and electronic tag that's a practice that u.k. prime minister bars johnson says he wants to change we say in the manifesto that we will to toughen up sentences for serious and violent offenses and i've said for
7:08 pm
a long time that i think the practice of automatic to the really where you cut a sentence in hoc from it really serious that this out simply isn't working and i think you've had some very good evidence of how that is working i'm afraid this case prison is holding snap elections in less than 2 weeks but campaigning in london a suspended for the weekend so far the election campaign has focused on bragg's it and medical care in the country but in the aftermath of this attack terrorism is likely to be high on the agenda 2. of a more i'm joined now by journalist josh claim in london josh thanks for joining me more details are slowly emerging about this attack and what more can you tell us. well you outlined most already we know that was one car was released from prison on license in december having served 6 months for war of 18 years this person jailed

7:10 pm
unfortunately you can't has had a lot of experience of severe terrorist attacks before major election if you recall the 27000 election just 5 days before lent to the polls there was an attack on bar market not 400 metres where the attack took place yesterday and then 26 in a referendum only go to leave the european union in 26 steve cox excuse me and it was unfortunate shot and killed so violence before i answer voting are fortunately becoming quite common in the u.k. but i think boris johnson of the message you're trying to act like an authority authoritarian on trance or sound tough on crime may have that sense but it's very and those asked is there any chance he could delay the election. i think not so i think it were 24 hours before the election it might be a bit of a different story but considering the quality got at least 2 weeks before the polls open i think. i don't think there's any chance that into late night by things a lot of politicians will double down unless it's in trust worthy and sense of
