7:14 pm
network, international networks are still put casting and tv working in normal condition at the stage. but we are looking carefully at the situation and not making any worrying comments at the stage. well, president chi side says article 82 as he has constitution essentially gives him the power to push out the prime minister. according to the article, the president may take any measures necessary and even to imminent danger that threatens the nation's institutions, security or independence. however, the clause also states that before extraordinary action, the president must 1st consult with the head of government and the speaker of the assembly. it states this after 30 days, the speaker may reach out to the constitutional court, which can then determine if the president's actions were warranted and
7:15 pm
constitutional. william lawrence is a professor of political science and international affairs at the american university. he thinks what the president is doing to face a fair amount will face a fair amount of opposition to what he's doing. politics has also failed to produce a constitutional course court. so there is no recourse constitutionally to review the president's actions, which if you look at that article closely, do not allow him to do what he's doing. and certainly not the ways doing it. there's no mention of removing immunity for parliamentary and there's no mention of it take over. ready a full executive authority and firing administers all that in propagation by the president who is a constitutional expert, but doesn't even have a ph. d with sort of a low level lecturer at the university and is often portrayed as a constitutional scholar of some, some notes. but, and all of his meetings today, people are coming and explaining the constitution. sure. so it all remains to be
7:16 pm
seen how this can be turned around if it will be turned around. but right now, you know, i've been talking the constitutional experts since yesterday, and no one really sees either that the constitution allows them to do this or that there's a way out except for a political negotiation. like we had during the crisis of 2013 k said one the presidential election in a landslide and u t. t is the most powerful institution in the country. and the commonality there is that they're both sort of from the arab nationalists side of politics. so there's this overlap there. but up until now the u. g t t has been the guardians of the of democracy in the guardians of the constitution, where i say, seems to want to ruled by decree. and by a plebiscite, you know, almost the napoleon, 3 sort of way, and every revolution hasn't napoleon moment. so we're, we're waiting to see,
7:17 pm
you know, is this going in a 2013 direction or it's needed 2013 direction. and the behavior of the largest institutions, the labor union and the military, which we need to talk about as well. after that picture with all the generals and the threat by the president to use force, those are the big questions right now. well still had hail now was there a little sign of a thorough told between china and the us get off to a testy store that story after the break. ah ah, it's time for the journey to winter sponsored my cattle airways. we've still got 2 side turns to look at, but in far was the tie food that went on land yesterday, just south of shanghai. advertising is now tropical storm,
7:18 pm
but it will rapidly no longer be named as such. still revolving storm that the strength of the wind brought down to like $30000.00 trees. obviously, as you know, public transport was stopped. the time being that the real problem is going to be still to come. i think extensive flooding this amount of rain over low lying gravity is already sudden it's a river valleys, the young see and of the next day or so it will keep moving stallion and expanding its rain bands whilst the other one makes land fall on. sure. so 1st of all then the remains of in far overnight and during wednesday we'll do this. the orange bands or bands of razor running up to the same area that was flooded extensively just a couple of days ago. so there's a lot worse still to come. it looks like this one, the bit concerned about in the lympics venue in tokyo is going to be a long way. no small tropical storm. make landfall in hong shoes. a few shout, maybe in tokyo, a bit of an increase in win know was not i think is more rain to come to lose on but know from in the most come and me and my but fire for that threat related in
