going on the road with the stories he talked to here, told by the people who live the master barber of berlin. this is europe on al jazeera and holding the powerful to account was we examined the u. s. whose role in the world on al jazeera, ah, disillusion versus ass holes closed in iraq. officials warned 10 out in the parliamentary elections could be one of the lowest on record. ah, that i owe money. sorry. this is al jazeera life, and doha also coming up to missions,
protest against the president's decision to suspend parliament and executive power talks between the taliban and u. s. officials appeared to have reached an agreement on guessing aid to afghanistan. thousands demonstrate that support the opponent, european union membership off to a court ruling that the national constitution override. some of the blocks laws. ah, iraqi officials have indicated that sunday's parliamentary election drew one of the lowest turn outs in years. it was supposed to be held next year, but was brought forward and response to mass anti government protests. the lack of voter interests suggest dwindling, trust and political leaders on the democratic system that followed the 2003 us led invasion still to head as the electoral commission is promising. fairness and
transparency as ballots are tallied. come off on the yeoman, some gosh of a to let you know we have been open and honest with the public and counting the votes manually in line with the law. and we've been transparent in all aspects of the electoral process. all the measures have been taken. there is evidence for any fair minded person about the management of the electoral process. to declare the final results of the declaration of results will take place within the next few hours. the next 24 hours, allie hash. and has this report from baghdad for some of the people heading to vote here and bud this election may not change much. what for the government? and it's deeply divided political establishment. it's about legitimacy. the turnout will likely decide that. and that's why senior government officials and political leaders rushed to falling stations early in the morning to cast their votes, him and the som, jamie unadilla. i know we all have to contribute to change our reality. i want to
tell a rockies that we still have time ahead of us to day. go out and vote change or reality for iraq and for the future. there are more than $3000.00 candidates running for the selection on the quarter of them are independent. this is another reason why some voters say they are skeptical of the forces despite take important election. would that are others who hope for real change with a 1000000 olivia and we look to vote to make the changes we're after. i hope it's going to be for the good of our people and beloved country. iraq's electronic voting system makes the process easier, but it doesn't always work in the southern city of basra loan, more than 20 pulling stations have reported technical issues. then a little commission wants to declare the results within 24 hours to prevent it might be possible with electron accounting and with such force. it's also possible that there will be many reasons for some candidates to cast doubt on the furnace of
the election. i shall 0 in wrong con has been at a polling station in the northern city of nicer and says only a fraction of eligible voters showed up. 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 fought just over a 1000 people have voted across new province. were hearing that the vote 10 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 the 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. as a must have as a pro democracy, activists based in bel and iraq's kid a recent region. 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
things that we need to, 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, it was because young people wanted their basic right to just clean water electricity, better 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 good moving in iraq. so these are also points that people are concerned about. some use like to me are scared to speak up because they do not know what will happen to them in both data and other parts of iraq. you very table so that people, there are really scared of speaking up 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 hope. thousands of tennesseans have rallied against president chi saeed, accusing him of a power grab demonstrations, have been taking place across the country inside, assumed executive authority and suspended parliament 2 months ago. and our fears growing protest could cause tennessee as political divisions to spiral into civil unrest. ownership our reports. oh, 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 chi, so you'd broke the law by suspending parliament and sacking the prime minister in july and they want him to step down the huge engine easier, east gainey for now we don't know what are we gonna have with them?
okay, nancy, i am re protestors 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 and the suspend parliament situation is very critical. and it is time promise, of course i was taught listening to the people and sitting on the table and getting on a dialogue with those. busy who are living with him in this country. so i say is that because he is the president of and isn't a public. ready so he's a president of, or to museums, not all of those who are there to support him. president high side is now ruling by decree. after assuming nearly all executive power, he's pledge 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 you 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 graphs. so many are against thousands rallied in tunis and other cities, according to interior ministry figures. yet seed was filmed, telling his prime minister, designate that 1800000 had turned out nationwide to back him who discrepancy is perhaps a reflection of how divided tunisia has become inter shipple now. dizzy. let's take a closer look at how to nicea reached this point on the beginning of 2019 case i eat, then a political outsider was elected president anne's voters rejected mainstream parties. parliament became increasingly fractured. analysts say deep rivalries grew between the president, a prime minister on the parliamentary speaker preventing action to solve tennessee as problems. and in july, as we've heard, president case said,
suspended parliament and assumed executive authority, saying he acted to save the country. critics though see it as a qu, i'm include as a member of the and had, are parties executive committee says the president needs to stop listening to all to nations, not only his supporters. it's very significant because today we can see that mr. chris hyde is getting into more and more isolation and he's in total isolation towards the birth, tennyson people, the majority of conditions people, he's in total isolation. in other words, the majority of the political elite. and beside that tunisia right now and miss, okay, site policies are not getting any support from the international community. so june easiest. today, are you more dangerous than the dangers in which they were before the 25th of july? we do not want any threat to the president. we want democracy to come back.
unfortunately, to news yet cannot wait until the end of next month, because next monday couldn't economical source crisis will go deeper. and there is a real thread that using will not even have their salary to the pay. and then people may be in an organized way. we'll get into 3 because when people get hungry than political early nor even engineers. busy will be able to defend them. so the danger is really even more critical than having huge a getting on the street to defend or being in a position to mr. i cited situation is very critical and it is time promise of credit. i talked listening to the people and sitting on the table and getting on a dialogue with those who are living with him in this country. so i said, is that because he is the president of denise in the public. so he's the president of, or 2 museums, not all of those who are there to support him. representatives of the taliban
say they're finished, what they are calling positive talks with the u. s. in casa issued a statement saying that while the us still refuses to recognize the taliban government, it's agreed to provide humanitarian aid to help afghan histone avoid looming crisis . the u. s. has an issue, any official comment as of yet, the taliban will now meet with a delegation from the european union. natasha named has moved from 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 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. still head on al jazeera, ah thousands rally in belgium's capital demanding funds to action on climate change. as a conservation drive becomes a matter concern of to cook. does that lives in houston? indian awe? thanks for checking in. here's your weather story for the americas. hello, everyone. we do have about a 5050 shot. this could turn into something tropical. will continue to watch it. and it can, there are belts of warmth, then humidity is going to spark some storms through the mid west into the great

ah, i'll just the real world. sweet said she, dizzy and family, facing agonizing choices and an uncertain future. we had the family type enough of it and i want to move to another country. disillusioned with life, been struggling economy. and my dream was to become a lawyer or a judge. i really wanted back what the circumstances a to to see and family high hopes, desperate lives on out to sierra lou ah,
welcome back you watching al jazeera mind if our top stories this, our iraqi officials have indicated that sundays parliamentary election drew one of the lowest turn outs and years. the electoral commission is promising. fairness and transparency as ballads accounted. thousands of televisions have raleigh against president ty saeed, accusing him of a power, grab demonstrations, have been taking place across the country since i'd assumed executive authority and suspended parliament 2 months ago. or presented his of the taliban say they finish what? by calling positive talks with the u. s. and cattle. they say washington has agreed to provide humanitarian aid to afghanistan. united states has an issue. any statement yet? tens of thousands of people have rallied across poland. angry at a court ruling which said that parts of e law are incompatible with the polish constitution. supporters if the you are worried that their government is pushing poland towards an exit from the block, or
a challenge has this report from also a large crowds and a you flags plenty in central war. so and real fears for the country's future we would like to stay in the european union and we are very afraid that, that we are going to, to pull exit together with the government of mister kaczynski and the others. it's like, you know, a magician who is playing a young magician who's playing, who is 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've done since the constitutional tribunal ruled on thursday. the foundational part of law don't apply in poland. thomas, opposition, politicians on you support assuming mobilizing the turn out here reinforces
a central point. support for the european union in poland is overwhelming. some 75 to 80 percent of the population, not even the ruling. lauren justice party. really questions ponens membership of the european union. so begs the question, why is the government picking such a potentially dangerous fight with brussels? we did invite poland government and supporters in the media to explain their position, but none took the opportunity. so i put the question to adam bordner until being ousted by the same tribunal that ruled against the e. u. he was poland, human rights ombudsman. it seems to me that government would simply like to accept, okay, we can take the money, we can take all those benefits, but please leave us alone when it comes to and the pressure concerning the compliance with and the european standards. but it is impossible simply because you cannot be at the same time member of the european union and ignore basic rules of
european integration. the you is thinking about its response. it neither wants to let this slide nor worse on the dispute. we will react of calls like we're like we have down in the last weeks or, and miles, we have seen that again, we already know false new decisions of the court of justice about as efficient in color and also possible a daily financial sanction. the constitution now joins issues like judicial reform, abortion, and l g b t writes connected fronts and a power struggle between poland government and the e u. that is getting worse, not better, very challenge how to 0. also, tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in brussels ahead of the climate summit in glasgow in november, urging well latest increase climate ambitions and caught more emissions to fasten has salacious from brussels, o brussels,
the heart of the european union filled with protesters while organizes had predicted around 20000 would take part policy at least 50000 turned up. we see that the effects of climate change are already among us, not only in the south of the world, but also in europe. we've seen terrible floods in belgium and in germany. and there are many, many people ever got the effects and the and are seeing now what, what the effects of climate change are. last july, days of torrential rain, co, severe flooding in western parts of europe, including in belgium, with dozens of people died. the government was criticized for its late response. this is the message from russell school glasgow coming from jail run from families from climate activist. they say the time for talking is gone. now i need some action. the e, you recently increase it's climate. the missions aiming to cut emissions by 55 percent by 2030 instead of 40 percent, but protects the same setting goals as one thing. implementing them is another.
we've already achieved the love. all these protests at the european level they lead to the european gree, nailed the lead to quite a lot of ambition and thing of that. so any 30 emissions starting for example, which was a really big deal, something that we've been working with for for years. and this is where we come out on the streets and especially tell our belgian leaders who are not as ambitious. you need to get back to work. oh wow. i came as a student because it's important to let our voice be heard. and if we're given the possibility to express ourselves, we need to take it among the crowds. activists from the amazon and brazil. i am so thrilled to be here with this people. what they are giving your voice probably saying what they want for their a fruit future generation. what is very important to me. my concern is about the 7 following generations. what we're going to leave for them. so that's why i am here . just give me a little bit tougher noise from the amazon with less than
a month to go until word leaders gather in glasgow for the you and cop 26 summit climate acted as our calling for more protests in the weeks to come stop fossil al jazeera in brussels, a group of palestinians and starting a local campaign to protect farmers from israeli settlers ahead of the olive harvest season this week. they say subtler attacks, i increasing and vomit fair. they'll face more violence during this. he is harvest, nit abraham reports from the occupied westbank. oh good am i? moran can only go on his land 4 times a year. israel declared this area, but in village north of the occupied west bank, i closed military resume in 2016 if near an illegal is really settlement and he needs and his really permit to enter that the him up before hospital or unripe. all ok, so they don't generate much oil, but i am forced to pick them now, which means i will lose this season. he hired workers to help him because many

missus, new generations of settlers are more violent, so they formed local committees to protect farmers. more of them will. oh god does it most of the time, the israeli army protect the settlers even when they're attacking palestinians. that's why we want farmers to be in groups and not alarm of palestinian officials said there is an imbalance of power and of called on other states to put settlers on their list of so called terror groups lock on humbler and phyllis to this campaign, aims to provide protection to palestinian people from settlers terror. we want states to change their domestic laws, so settlers will be held accountable. in the meantime, i am gone hopes his to his will be safe until he is allowed to go back to his land . the day abraham l just either the occupied left flank hundreds of indigenous protesters have turned out in chile to oppose the celebration of the spanish conquest. 500 years ago. many across last in america say the cycle day of the race

but not necessarily close to spain. in fact, you've got ahead almost 2000 kilometers as the crow flies to get to the canary islands off the coast of africa. the weston most canary island is the one we are looking at the islands of la palmer, 40 kilometers, or so top to bottom. and a population of $85000.00 people and it's here right in the middle, we are looking at the camera via volcano, actually it's a ridge of volcanoes. that's just the fisher which is opened up here. and as we head down the hill side, that's when you start to see all these houses and structures all in the path of that flow of lava, which we've illustrated in yellow there. and then it continues on down towards the beach. playa del perdido, where of course, all that oliver is hitting the water and now actually creating a new part of the le palma coastline. you know something to think about as we soon back out again, that yellow line that flow of the lava from the volcano down to the coast is only
about 10 kilometers. and remember, the flow of lava the speed is anything between 30700 meters an hour at a temperature of over a 1000 degrees celsius. in eastern india, the government has succeeded in protecting salt water crocodiles on restoring their population national parks. but as their numbers increase, they have started to encroach on local villages that depend on the river they livelihoods. ne, haunting, has a story. just the simple task of washing dishes can be dangerous here, doing laundry, catastrophic and a personal lives in the eastern indian state of odessa. she shows us her feet where she was once attacked by a salt water crocodile. her friend, part about the remembers her brother who was pulled under nama lynn t lugging a little religious thought is shouting when the crocodile took my brother. but it
is such a powerful animal. what could we have done? suffice string. every woeful dialect. something would happen says the numbers are rising. it took my breath away. i just don't understand why. a nearby national park is known for having one of the highest number of salt water crocodiles in the world . after the government introduced conservation efforts in the 1970s, the number of crocodiles increased from fewer than a 100 to nearly 2000 during india's monsoon season. this river swells making it easier for the crocodiles to encroach on the villages nearby. but now when the water levels go down, the crocs don't leave. instead they stay and lay their eggs, hosing a serious threat to people. people have started boy distinguish hardwood, but good news, but from kind of mitigation measures, even with the predators looming in the water. daily chores must go on. something mainly done by women and children. but everyone faces the threat. at some point.
people come here to wash up and cattle, wade and daily as vividly lighting up. i'd like to be on the low dependency. we are completely dependent on this river for drinking water, an oven anemia. for the past one and a half years, the terror of crocodiles has seed on among the villagers. i believe that we are afraid to come near the liver loving mother. but we have to god that because we are dependent on it from the nearly 200000 people who depend on this delta life now involves a constant fear of what's lurking underneath the muddy waters. leah harding al jazeera. ah, this is al jazeera, these, your top stories. rocky officials have indicated that sunday's parliamentary election drew one of the lowest turn outs than years. it was supposed to be held next year, but was brought forward in response to the mass, anti government purchase. the electoral commission is promising fantasy and
