changed the wall on al jazeera. we understand the differences and similarities of cultures across the world. so no matter how you take it will bring you the news and current affairs that matter to you. oh, a chance for electro change in iraq, but his votes are counted. it's clear. many people stayed away. ah, hello, i'm barbara sarah. you're watching al 0 live from london. also coming up, calling for the president. the spec down thousands of to museum speak to the streets of the capital. in doha talks between the taliban and us officials appeared to afford the agreement on the delivery of humanitarian aid and an uneasy
coexistence on one indian river where a conservation success story is putting lives ah, book counting is now underway in iraq following parliamentary elections called early in response to mass anti government protests, 2 years ago, disillusioned by corruption and mismanagement, demonstrators said the time had come for the country's political elite. the step down 25000000 people were eligible to vote on sunday, but many polling stations were empty and turn out is expected to be its lowest since 2003 at the root of this voter apathy and calls to boycott an election which may not bring the change that so many crave. ali hashim has more from baghdad. it seems, yes,
i would said the indications right now that the turnout was far below 50 percent, even maybe a below 40 percent. the moment are no clear numbers and we are expecting the iraqi a commissioned electoral commission to issue the, the numbers. but it seems yes, according to many sources around the country everywhere, especially in the, in, for example, in the south. the hearing back that there was a lot of m t pulling stations. people had no interest in going to the polling stations in voting and taking a class in this election. and this is barsha partially related to the white caught a campaign. and at the same time, it's related to the 2019 brought us loss. that the legacy of the political factions and the political parties in this country isn't that positive. and maybe
that's why people didn't want to renew the mandate to them. there are a lot of complains on the electron london electronic electron system. and the, the high commission for election here in iraq said that they sold these spa gms anyway. in the coming 24 hours, the results are to be announced. i spur the, the commission and then a new task was thought which is choosing the new practice in lung can, meanwhile, is in mosul outside a main pulling station in the city that still recovering from years of war. despite this heavy security is been a very disappointing day here at the ballot box. now this pulling station behind me is one of the main ones in mosul. a 1000 people are registered to vote here. so far, just over a 1000 people have voted across new or province. we're hearing that the vote turn out will be around 21 to 25 percent. that's incredibly, incredibly low. now,
what's the reason for that? well, they say that all politics is local. one of the driving issues of the anger and frustration that residents of mosul fil is the fact that they feel that central baghdad, the government that has completely ignored them. this was sent the scene of some the most intense fighting against iceland. 2017. i'll just give you an example, you can see just often the distance there. that's one of the houses that was almost completely destroyed all along the street right. the way down for miles, you can see destroyed houses, bullet holes, and just complete destruction the residence of very angry the central baghdad hasn't given them the money to rebuild their homes. a lot of people still living in displacement camps because they can't come back to mosul because there's nothing to come back to their houses, the and if the work, there's a running water, there's no gas is no electricity that's driving or the lack of voting hey, what's most residents, the saying is that actually what's the point?
nothing ever changes and we're very angry. so that boy caught the vote movement that we've been talking about over the last few days does seem to have translated into a lack of action at the polling station. a little earlier i spoke to as a mustafah pro democracy activist based in the kurdish region of northern iraq. she spent the day trying to encourage people to vote. we were never told about the importance of democracy. the importance of voting these were, i think that we need to have in our educational system, but we did not have that. so one of the reasons why 2 years ago there was the protest because because young people want to basically just clean water, electricity, mental health conditions, when they were not able to receive it. and not only that, when they protested 600 people were killed and thousands were injured. and many journalist and activists went missing. in fact, 3 days ago and journalist how go moving in iraq. so these are also points that
people are concerned about. some use like me, are scared to speak up because they do not know what will happen to them in both data. i mean, other parts of your out, you very well. so that people, there are really scared of speaking, not because they, they have in their loved ones, their family and their friends go missing or dead. so this is also another factor that stops the youth from speaking up and from losing hawk ah. representatives of the taliban say they've wrapped up what they're calling positive talks with the u. s. and catheter in a state, when they said the full implementation of the agreement was considered to be the best way of resolving their problems. and the u. s. delegation stated they will give humanitarian assistance the afghans providing facilities for going to zation
to deliver aid on affected by political issues. if also met with a delegation from the european union, natasha game as more now from doha. the afghan ministry of information characterized the to day talks as quote, positive and says, the hope is this will pay the way for recognition of this transitional afghan government, not only by the united states, but by the international community. the afghan delegation led by the acting foreign minister, came to doha, seeking international recognition and the much needed financial assistance that accompanies it. the country is in the midst of economic and humanitarian crises with the un refugee agency warning that if the country doesn't get that much needed assistance, come winter, there will be a quote catastrophe. the acting un ambassadors to hail shaheen says the 2 sides
dove into political issues and came to the consensus that the full implementation of the doha agreement is the only way to resolve political differences going forward. he says the us vow to provide humanitarian assistance to the afghans will work with nonprofit organizations and helping to facilitate the delivery of that aid. and that humanitarian assistance will be decoupled from political issues. the afghan delegation says that it will cooperate with humanitarian groups to get that humanitarian aid to the afghans, and that it will continue to normalize diplomatic relations. it did say that future meetings with the american delegation might take place if warranted. thus far, the united states is not commenting on these 1st ever to day talks. thousands of tennesseans have rallied against their president, accusing k said of
a power grab demonstrations, have been taking place across the country since a either soon executive authority and suspended parliament. 2 months ago. there are fears, the growing protests could corston easiest political divisions, the spiral into civil unrest and are chappelle reports. ah, on this sunny day in tunis, thousands came out to protest against their president. they were responding to a call for action from a group known as citizens against the qu. they believe president case. so you broke the law by suspending parliament and sacking the prime minister in july and they want him to step down the future junior. he's really skating for now we don't know what are we gonna have? we don't ever with them. okay. i am really protesters used to familiar chance the people want
removal of the president. they also urge security forces to remain neutral in this constitutional crisis. many support and the largest block in the suspend parliament situation is very critical and it is time promise of christ. i was taught listening to the people and sitting on the table. ready and getting an a dialogue with those who are living with him in this country as i say is that because he is the president of and isn't a public. ready so he is a president of, or to news years, not all of those who are there to support him. president high said is now ruling by decree. after assuming nearly all executive power, he's pledged to fight corruption and revive along stagnant economy. he's defended his move, saying it was to save the country, but his critics call it a coo. and while say ye broke ground by appointing the 1st female prime minister, he's yet to provide a road map out of this crisis. and she's yet to name
a government a week ago, it was the president supporters who were on this very st, endorsing the policies and power grab so many are against thousands rallied in tunis and other cities, according to interior minister figures. yet seed was filmed, telling his prime minister, designate that 1800000 had turned out nationwide to back him. the discrepancy is perhaps a reflection of how divided tunisia has become eligible. now, dizzy power is being restored across lebanon, following saturdays total, black out. the country which is struggling with a crippling economic crisis. so it's 2 biggest power stations shut down because of a fuel shortage. the energy ministry says it's received approval for a $100000000.00 in credit to secure fuel imports. santa holder has more now from beirut. the state electricity network has again collapsed a lack of fuel,

$1500000000.00. successive governments have continued to sustain this system instead of fixing it. they've subsidized fuel and maintained a bloated workforce, as part of the political parties, patronage networks. the international community has been demanding the restructuring of the sector before it approves financial assistance. there has been no political will. instead, the authorities made a deal with iraq to swap fuel for medical services, and the new government is negotiating supplies of electricity from jordan and natural gas from egypt via syria. but those deals are likely to take months and it may help ease the crisis. but it won't resolve it. lebanese households have had to put up with daily power cuts till the end of the civil war in 1990. but now the local currency has lost 90 percent of its value. it means only a few r able to afford private generators, while hospitals bakeries and other central services are in crisis mode. for many

we would like to stay in the european union and we are very afraid that, that we are going to, to the pol exit together with the government of mr. kuchinski. and the other is like, you know, a magician who is playing a young magician who is playing with fire and he doesn't know how to know how to stop so it can explode. so i think he's the same here. they don't really know what they did since the constitutional tribunal ruled on thursday. that foundational parts of new law don't apply in poland, damage or position politicians on you. supporters will be in mobilizing the turn out here reinforces a central points support for the european union in poland is overwhelming, some 75 to 80 percent of the population, not even the ruling. lauren justice party ready questions ponens membership of the european union. so begs a question, why is the government picking such
