2:36 pm
when i talk to voters, say correction is just so and demick in the system, just so entwined in the system that it seems that one election is not going to get rid of it. but perhaps we could reduce it as far as political stability goes in this country. well, that's a real open question. i mean, sure, the idea was that they want to have more stability. the business community is screening for stability. but here's the thing. as the current pulling of accurate, none of the coalitions are going to get the majority of seats in parliament from getting that by the voters tomorrow. so then what happens after the election will then be different leaders of these coalitions are going to have to try and horse trade to see if they can somehow pull together an alliance. that gets them to that magic number of a 100. well, $112.00 gives you a majority of the $222.00 seats, but if they're pulling together a frag somewhat fragmented a line. what happens is down the road, some members of the lines i get together backed out, then you have again, another prime minister tunnels that we've seen several times during the past few
2:37 pm
years here. so it's not clear at all that tomorrow election and going to bring more stability to this country. a large proportion of the some 21000000 people who be going to the balls who could be going to the balls are under the age of 40. and out of this $21000000.00, about $2000000.00 are 1st time 18 to 21 year olds, who will be voting. how much of a difference can their vote make? if you look at this whole group, the under 40 demographic makes it more than half of the eligible voters in this country, including these 18922 are eligible to vote for the 1st time we see making 20 are being looked at as a wildcard how motivated are they going to be to vote? that's no one really knows them at point as far as the under 40, as a picture 18. the 39 year old go. well, as i said, that more than half of the eligible voters. and clearly, the political parties and coalition have made it a big factor, a big part of their campaign would try to peel them one. you see a lot of new young candidates being fielded. and then off he candidates of all ages
2:38 pm
trying to target these young voters, they're going to places where they congregate, they're going to coffee shops, they're going to different events where they will find young people to meet them, the talk to them to try to relate to them, it's also interesting. i spoke to them or decor center for opinion research, which is done survey here. and they say that young voters, the majority of them, they don't trust politicians. they don't trust political parties. and that's why you see on the campaign trail. so many of these candidates and coalitions and try to remake the image of their leaders to make them look like they're not just politicians. but these are caring people who have cause they really believe in are going to fight for us. you see really targeting of the young voters by the candidates and the coalitions. thanks very much for that. her leave it there for the time being tech so much dave? good ma'am. corresponding joining us from paloton ball. now the city of heroes about in northern india is well known throughout the country
