12:06 am
have been to demonstrating this morning. they represent from large blocks in the, in the, in the political class like another forest. and so he's, he's not taking that lightly. and the measure that he took his taken about, you know, the 4 beating. the gatherings on the phone is probably a way to block the possibility of more escalation of seeing his opponents filling the streets. because he doesn't know how to what extent that's that situation is going to escalate. i mean, looks like he's afraid of something serious because he has also removed his defense minister today. and that's unusual when you half the army, the streets and so on. and that the military is supposed to be protecting the constitution and the president. and he moves the defense minister in that particular moment. so base i, it is very concerned about the consequences of his actions. he has been explaining some of those actions today when he said that people have understood him wrong when,
12:07 am
when they thought that he's, that he has stage a coup or can easiest form a president, one segment of key says supporters of k said might not realize they're supporting a new dictator, we have this political crisis and that's the worst process that we have ever had. indonesia, we have 100 people dying every day from corona virus, and then we have also a huge crisis. so this one, if you could kind of excuse me because people are exhausted, they are scared and nobody knows exactly where we are heading. i know this is not exactly what we would say, a wise man, and i'm afraid what his reaction the next few days when the face and the opposition growing from the bottom from the suicide. i don't know exactly what my main concern is. how was the army out there that the military would react?
12:08 am
i know very closely this to me because i have the, i have been, have state 2 years though. i know the very well i know that they have protected lucian constitution at that time. and i do hope that they gave me this attitude. people expect them to not, from democracy, from the, from the ultimate effect is extremely disappointed. this is why for the moment some of the population, it's important, but they don't understand that. in fact, they are supporting the kato and this movie, it will never be able to make up the social problem. and because he was part of the system political system, i think he's responsible for,
12:09 am
for the national government. well, president said has been in office since 2019 when he was elected as an independent social conservative, despite having little political experience and no party backing. he's a jurist who specialized in constitutional law and says article 80 of canisius constitution essentially gives him the power to push out the prime minister. well, according to the article, the president may take any measures necessary in the event of imminent danger that threatens the nation's institutions. security or independence, but it also states that before taking extraordinary action, the president must 1st consult the head of government and the speaker of the assembly. it states that after 30 days, the speaker may appeal to the constitutional court which can then determine if the president's actions were warranted and constitutional. well, william laurence is a professor of political science and international affairs of the american

university. he says the actions taken by seed are not in line with the constitution . there is no mention of removing immunity for parliamentary and there's no mention of it take. ready over a full executive authority and firing administers all that improvisation 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 in all of his meetings today, people are coming and explaining the constitution. i'm sure it all remains to be seen how this can be turned around if it will be turned around. right now. you know, i've been talking to 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. while the dismissed
12:11 am
prime minister, he shim machine, she had called for protests against his ousting. but he now says he will hand over responsible if he to whoever the president chooses to replace him. she. she released a statement saying he would not be at the srp development in the country and was ready to serve tenicia from any location. use rod her new. she is a spokesperson for in that that that's the biggest party into noisiest parliament. she is also the daughter of the speaker, she says the move is a power grab, it is a coo and this is how folks into the suspension of the rule of law, especially of democracy, a suspension of all the rights and freedoms and trying to the constitution or the freedom and gains for which to sacrifice so much over generations and over the last 10 years. and we are not ready to gain anything that will
12:12 am
be undertaken by, by the president of police from the school is equal and against the constitution and will be rejected. and we continue to call on him to re both the great violation of the constitution and to restore democracy. and we cool on all supported of democracy and our international office to can firmly against the school and to support in it's in democracy because nothing justifies the suspension. optimal christie and this struction of the last hope in the region. while earlier security forces dressed as civilians, a storm, the algiers office in tunis and removed all staff from the building, al jazeera, as soon as bureau chiefs. lucy had g says they still don't know what will happen to
12:13 am
them. what they closed the office without providing any reason. a group of security men came in in civilian clothes. they broke into the office and took the keys and said, these were the instructions. i asked for legal justification, but they did not have it. and they said they were from the ministry of interior. we carried out their instructions, like they asked us, and my colleagues were prevented from take in their computers or other items. that this procedure is arbitrary. fear is meant to bring us back to the previous measures that were against freedom of the press and freedom of expression. let's speak now with penny z and based activist marianne la honey. she joins me on the phone from neville. madam, thank you so much for joining us here on al jazeera, you are an activist. you have been opposed to the handling of the government of various crises. for example, the way that covey has the no sir, to me, has skyrocketed, infections have skyrocketed into new z recently. so you were opposed to some of the
12:14 am
actions of the government before sunday. how do you feel now? hi, barbara, thank you for, for having me. first of all, let me say again that what happens to me last night was cool and we can not be on the side of things that i'm local. would something that reaches a video and violates our rights. i can understand that people are frustrated with the current situation of hospitals would be going on like and social situation, but never seem to improve and portion of the top of that political scene. the sued by chaos at barnum, and that is almost paralyzed barnum. and then buried wire keep will keep impeding the work of the parliament. but at the same time, this will not make me support a decision was taken by the prison last night. so what do you plan to do now? because there is a curfew in place,
12:15 am
any gathering of more than 3 people has been banned. and if you have any plans on how to act, to show your displeasure of what is going on, ok, basically the prison i sigh, you see all power. today there is no more separate, no more separation between the branch of power. and this could be asked to nothing but it's only 30 new. and it has already started using that in the day, the police thomas. i just did a bureau in geneva and expect joy from it today. some journalists and the capital calls were taken away from then you said the business and now it was you, i 7 and my business send you more than 3 people in the streets. so we are seeing our right of expression and somebody being violated and for all of our i and believe me, this is just the 1st day of post school to me. they said that we cannot live something worse than what we are already living. and i tell them all on the worst
12:16 am
is yet to come, and there is no county that so prosperity, development, and well being on the back of the cool nothing. i think nothing grades can come from. and i know i'm actually in my opinion, what should happen now is that all political garcia should come together since most of the political parties left and rights have agreed that this is a cool and they are against what's happening. and i think that we should request an elections and the upcoming period, the parliament should remain functional because that's what the constitution say. and he said that his decision is suspending the parliament and dismissing the prime minister where based on article 8 the you, i can be on a very important think the parliament should keep keep working, interrupt you there. i mean, can, is, even before the events of sunday night was facing a cobit crisis,
12:17 am
one of the worst rates of infections in the world, the economy is under enormous pressure corruption. the president himself used politicians of plundering the country. who do you blame for the situation and can easier be in the way it is now? and i guess the promises made in the 2011 jasmine revolution being effectively broken. certainly not lived up to ok. i'm not going to say the same sentence off. i mean everyone because at the 1st place i, i think that we as people, we take this consulate if the people who are now in power wait a democratically elected 2 years ago. if you will, as i said, there's a new overs keep on the elections. if you don't vote, and by the way to turn out and the last election was about 40 percent smokeless, you can tell me that you want to change the name. that's not democracy. shoot me that you want to, that's your choice. then this is not how democracy works. this is not the way to go
