2:01 am
migrants from me and mar who side. the military cracked down at home faced huge challenges in thailand, jews. the cobra pandemic and russia shows off. it's me out of time. fire pie with president putin talking tough on his country's navy de. ah, trinity, as president says he's dismissed prime minister his i'm a she, she and he is suspended. parliament moved the head of parliament says is unconstitutional. it follows nationwide protest over the handling of the corona virus pandemic, and a struggling economy crowds in june as celebrated after the president's announcements. president high side says he's taking over executive powers and will appoint a new prime minister vital other. this is editor in chief of michigan. it's a changes in news analysis website. he's joining us by skype from the june is in capital june it's, it's good to have you with us analogy 0. the parliamentary speaker is accusing the
2:02 am
president of launching a crew against the revolution. and the constitution is this a qu well, certainly the speaker of parliament rushed anew. she will be had the party and not the which is the biggest party in parliament also stands the most to lose from the decision that the president has just announced. he is freezing, the parliament is what the president said. of course, i knew she had had a parliament and that the biggest party in parliament that had been supporting this government that lucy, they're also losing their prime minister, shouldn't she? she has been dismissed by the president as well. and not that was the biggest supporter of this prime minister and his government. so it makes sense that the head of parliament would have a criticism. there are others. and his party was also said they'd been called that even a crew and best certainly something that the president will have. one of the criticism
2:03 am
the president will have to deal with. however, i can tell you i've just been out in the streets into this. there are thousands of people celebrating in the streets. there are fireworks. we've had another correspondence in another part of today's. also sending footage. people cheering as military vehicles have moved in downtown to nist, but just thousands and thousands of people who have really been fed up with the way that the government is handled. not only the corona crisis, but a series of crises over the last several months, whether it's in the economy, whether it comes to prices, have seen the price of daily goods go gone up. you've seen also locked down that have been really quite punitive for people. people haven't been able to to have economic activity, and yet these lockdown haven't really done much to stem the tide of this. so quite a lot of factors that have put come together at the same time. parliament has been a very unpopular head of government has been very unpopular. and so this is,
2:04 am
this may explain why people are celebrating the street today. the prime minister might have gone parliament might well have been suspended, but the problems that you've just outlined still remain. what does the president or another parliament have to do in order to try to fix this? well, be we'll have to certainly deal with the cobra crisis in a better way than the previous government has or the people who are previously making the decisions already in the lead up to this we had heard just a few days ago, the president saying that he would like the military to, to take control over the cooper response. so this may have been a preemptive measure that he was taking before he took tonight to dismiss the prime minister and to give himself the power of ruling by decree using article 80 of the constitution. so in the case that the been military would have to prove that it can do better job than the current officials and the current health ministry. they have done some very well publicized vaccine rollouts in much quicker form than we've
2:05 am
seen previously. but definitely all eyes will be on them to see whether they can handle this immediate crisis. and certainly if you'd, like you said, the longer crisis of trying to solve some of the bigger economic challenges. if i understand correctly, there is some debate about whether or not in implementing article 80 of the constitution was applicable in this case. is there a suggestion? is there a chance that the president is actually using this opportunity and using the dissatisfaction of the people in tune as to essentially centralize more power in his own position? let certainly what his critics are saying, particularly the not the party. we haven't seen, other parties come out with official statements or reactions to this. although we can expect that probably tomorrow or in the next couple of days. brabs, even in a few hours, we'll see what other parties reactions have been. there's one central left party that is the 3rd biggest party in parliament,
2:06 am
barely just have come out and could they actually support what the president had said. he had said that this is a temporary measure, but this is according to the article, 80 of the constitution he himself, is it constitutional law professor that would what he did before he became a politician for decades. so he certainly will make it oh, legal case where there's an article it does mentioned that the constitutional court should have a day or 2. there is no cost to show court bickering between politicians between political parties, has resulted in years without filling the positions of the constitutional court. so unfortunate. there is no independent arbiter in this situation to decide on this. and we'll just have to be sort of thought out through the media through different decision. there is some, some people who are concerned that there may be of violence. the president himself warned about it in his address saying that he wanted no one to take up arms in a moment, otherwise the state would respond very forcefully. so clearly there is some tension
2:07 am
about where this might be going in the future. as far as the state of the economy was concerned, i understand that there were talks under way to try to get a loan from the international monetary fund in order to try to alleviate some of the problems the economy was going through. given the fact that june, if june is, is now going through a period of instability until another government is put in place. is there any risk? do you think that those talks, those negotiations could directly be derailed because of this instability? that's a very big question. i'm sure there are many people asking this question at this very moment. probably a lot of the diplomatic corps and international development agencies in tune as you're asking them to self. the very question right now, junior, has quite a lot of public debts that are due this year. the loan that it has been speaking had been mainly to pay off if other people would point to this and say that this is a crisis of debt at that cycle. so what solution is the president may offer maybe
2:08 am
a different solution than what the prime minister had been offering. we'll see if the talks, the discussions which have been underway for more than a month, whether those will continue. they have been hoping that they would assign a deal by the end of the summer, perhaps early september, but we'll just have to see that is an open question for you. is editor in chief of michigan institute is yet news and analysis website. and we appreciate you being an all just a thank you very much. indeed. thank you. 28. my gillian children have been reunited with their parents weeks after they were kidnapped by armed men that have been emotional scenes as the children returned to their tongue and could do the state. and someday. 33 students have not been willing for 87, a sterling captivity, a digit support from a boucher the not after 3. and i think it's an emotional reunion for parents whose children over

2:10 am
we're going to do. we are playing with them. we believe in that it will get well. but really, it is not something that you will want to see, but as if it was only find ourselves and we just have to ticket the student had been taken from the bethel high school, in the 10th must abduction from a school in northern nigeria, in the past 8 months, nearly 1000 students have been kidnapped from boarding schools in nigeria. north in may, gunman invaded and islamic school in central nigeria and keep not 136 students in broad daylight. only 5 of them have so far been released. officious have denied being ransom for kidnap victim, but many nigeria has done believe that some parents unknown talk, negotiated directly, and paid rent them to the kidnappers. kidnapping for ransom is nigi as fast as growing criminal enterprises carried out by gangs. and i'm gross, including how many degrees of which are the army of democratic
