6:34 pm
e and we are asking the president to to preserve the democracy and to present the freedom for the people and to do the best to, to stop the corruption and benjamin ok, well talk a little bit in a moment about what that might look like. but 1st i want to ask you about the criticisms that the president's move wasn't constitutional because he didn't coordinate with the prime minister or the speaker. and because in the constitutional court to rule on this, what do you make of that we have not a constitutional court who have to be made this to, to, to many years ago and, and not the, and their, their colleagues and department that they start the process of the constitutional court. so now those are the president to have the have all the right
6:35 pm
to, to, to, to deal with with our constitution. ok. sure. you see it has and not as far that there is no constitutional course. i want to move on from that and ask you how you envision things are going to play out over the next month. do you think that the president will gain consensus? try and get support across the political spectrum. negotiate away out of this. we have a good problem in our parliament. you who you are you hear about the court of the account quality engineer. yeah. they are what they are saying about the election parliament election and in 2009 you know, you have the reports, you know that the election was, was not, was not good the some, some,
6:36 pm
some party exceed the election or dispense and they not, they have a lot of problem in our parliament. and so i think that the president, i've done them the best thing and we are waiting for what what other decision he read done essentially the to come by the the correction ok. i will have to live at that time. thank you very much for your time if and use if they are a senior member of the democratic association of tuned his ends in france. the world trade organization is expected to discuss global demand for a vaccine patient waiver, as its general counsel meets in geneva. the u. s. south africa and india have led cause for the suspension of intellectual property rights from several jobs. they say it would allow local production of vaccine and hasten an em and in it. but it's opposed by several wealthy nation including the u. k. and the european union. donna
6:37 pm
hall is monitoring events for us from london, jonah. so how is this request to way the backseat patients likely to go down? i think it will meet a divided audience in the world trade organization among its membership. as the general council meets over the next 2 days, they're going to address it. they're going to look at it, we're going to hear from them either today or tomorrow about their conclusions, at least that conclusions for the time being. the issue here is about the so called trips waiver, as you said, they're waving the intellectual property rights held by the big pharmaceutical companies over there, vaccine product, so that those vaccines can be manufactured locally in factories locally on the ground in developing countries where they're needed most where populations have seen only tiny percentages of those populations have seen vaccines or are likely to see vaccines in the near future. while, of course, the developed world richer countries have been racing towards maximum or full
6:38 pm
coverage. and at the same time, say campaigners, they've been over ordering vaccines, in some cases, even bending vaccines that they can't use, or vaccines that go out of date. is it likely to be endorsed overall by consensus? this is a consensus body after all, probably not at this meeting. i think those are the signs. anyway. there's a lot of opposition. the u. k. germany on the part of the e. u is opposed as well as other rich countries. japan, australia, norway, switzerland. these are countries that believe that if you simply do away with intellectual property rights, you set a very poor precedent in terms of future investment, risk research innovation by these big pharmaceutical companies. they'd rather see a system of licensing rights handed out to developing countries. technology transfers so that you can manufacture those vaccines on the ground, but you don't do away with the will important profit principle. so without consensus, there's unlikely to be agreement. it may be pushed down the road to another meeting
