as you said, includes m. p. 's as well as former government officials and those associated with political parties opposing the current president, southern power of as well as his current cabinet ministers. that a plan, according to this government report, was to unite parties that are unhappy with whatever the election result or whatever the outcome of the election is. and in the post election period, a mass as many as a 1000 people to instigate clashes with police and the security apparatus. the goal being to try and over the president to power off in a repeat of the kind of protest and street violence that saw him rise to power over a year ago. now we have to be said that the elections tension over elections, any sort of contestation of elections in correspond, often happen on the street, not within the halls of power. and the timing of this report is clear. the government here is very, very keen on making sure that these upcoming votes that election in the next 2 days
is one that sees a stable and normal transition of power of far away from any sort of the street violence that we've seen in the past. now last year was the 3rd time this country saw a violent revolution in the decade. and the upcoming election is the 4th time that people will be going to the polls in, in about a year and 13 months. so there is definitely a lot of sensitivity around these upcoming polls. then obviously this is a breaking story as things develop, we're going to be coming back to you to get some more of the details before now. thank you for much indeed. president sat, his effort of is expected to maintain his grip on power after sunday's parliamentary elections as aim was just explaining their critics or accusing shut off of suppressing descent. they spoke to a politician running against the ruling party, blinded by a child who disease thus done, the cache of struggled with depression at an early age. the pursuit of knowledge,
he says, saved him and led him to a career as a lawyer. once a member of the party, overthrown by curtis sounds president southern of horror of the acting, and he is now running for parliament as an independent much more his campaign slogan. i see the truth a play on his disability suggests he has not lost his sense of humour and perhaps a jab at the current leadership. he may be blind, but even he is able to see the people's real problems. when you might said plan in social media is just like tv. you can be recognizable, you can make appeals from social media, but you will not lead your waters to the bell at boxes. that is why personal contact the moment when you are chatting with your potential voters, it better the chances that this water will come and work for you in a system that has for years run on political favortism. thus done walking, the beat makes him a rare breed the election for a new parliament is only a few days away. but walking around the capital, bish tech,
you wouldn't be able to tell. this is the lowest level of public activity this country has ever seen before. a vote. now that may be down to a nationwide case of what some experts are calling political fatigue. this is after all, the 4th round of poles this country is conducting in a year. political heat from opposing forces is also noticeably milder. descent has been muffled by obligations of corruption, opposition activists and leaders are out of the country or in prison. and front runners that are likely to fill parliamentary seats largely back the president. japira has not been as heavy handed as previous leaders, but has cracked down on political opponents, intimidated critics and pass laws to weaken press freedom things. he said he would not do the public promises that make him popular. his critics say, are a cover for the same corruption of past governments. many fear the elections will be followed by hostility. nice, we're going to get some news that i have no doubt that's going to have
a history shown us that such dictators as the current government, white for elections only to strengthen their vertical power. as soon as i have enough support, as soon as they have the parliament in the courts in their hands, they will intensify. the fight against us voter turn is going to be an important indicator of the health of democracy in correspond. and after years of ballads, cast out of fear, under pressure or for payment, turn out this time is expected to be extremely low. they in basra, v o jazeera, bish tech, we side as a warning, a new corona virus varian detected in south africa can spread more easily and it's better able to evade vaccines. israel and singapore are among the latest countries to impose travel restrictions and southern african countries. the you once to use emergency powers to stop travel that comes after the united kingdom and travel bands that south africa has criticized as rushed. we will be
suspending all flight from 6 southern african countries and we will add in those countries to the travel read list. those countries are south africa, namibia recessive, s what teeny. and is involved way and for twana. and we will be requiring anyone that arrives from those countries from foi am on sunday to quarantine in hotels. okay, let's go live to farmer miller in johannesburg. what do we know about the new variant? whole sciences in south africa have expressed some shock at the number of mutations in this very and saying that they're more than 30. and the issue here is that that number of mutations could potentially affect how antibodies neutralize the spike protein in this particular virus.
they are awaiting further daughter to determine the extent of transmissible, etc. that's really the spread of the virus from one person to another. and also just what impact it will have on people who are vaccinated an effect seeds keep people protected in south africa. a the dominant variant so far has been the delta variance, but scientists are saying this new variant has some of those elements but far more and this is why they are worried. this is why it is a variant of concern. the world health organization is meeting to discuss what to do about this particular variant, where they it, as is as dangerous as they think it is, or if perhaps it is identified as one of interest and may potentially by be down scale. but so far, as you've said, we already have those restrictions in place from european countries or, well the u. k. in particular, potentially other e u countries around travel from south africa,
the virus. and this new variant specifically, has been detected in botswana where there are 4 cases of people who had traveled into that country as well as hong kong. how is south africa reacting to the speakers? these decisions that are being made by other countries are pretty happening pretty quickly on thing. and if we look back over several months, for 5 weeks of africa was on that wed list where they were bad. and some people traveling from south africa band from traveling into certain countries, having to undergo some sort of quarantine and they had at a massive effect on the economy. and especially in the country in south africa where there is a huge dependence on tourism. and this is why the government has criticized that moved by the u. k as being rushed. but the minister of health has said, he acknowledges that this is a variant of concern. and potentially they may increase the cobra 19 restrictions
in south africa at the moment. if that is the lowest level level one where there really is a lot of freedom, but ahead of the holiday season, it's likely south africans may be subjected to higher restrictions from a to thank you very much. that family miller in johannesburg, corona, vice infections put the check president back in hospital just hours after his release from a 6 week long stay. 77 year old mila zeeman had to cancel a meeting, which was to officially appoint the new prime minister. the check governments declare the state of emergency in response to record infections. suffolk is gone into a 2 week lockdown. people can only leave home for buying essentials or if they have to go to school or work. so back he has moved follows austin, which put a lockdown in place on monday. oh, frances cancelled a meeting with the u. k to tackled people smuggling in the english channel. cancellations, a protest against british prime minister boris johnson. who blamed the french

they don't just blame the people smugglers, they blame governments on both sides of the channel. even though after what happened yesterday, people will try again. so it's really time to change the politics here. it's really, it's really time to change the situation and to i mean to open safe and the guy routes to let people, i mean, to cover basic needs when people are here and to lead them settle in france as well . the british and french governments often blame each other for the problem, getting worse. what's the rhetoric dies down though? there is some hope that wednesdays deaths could bring a new level of cooperation. what was intended to be a new beginning? was a tragic end for the men, women and children who died in the english channel. how many more may have to die before there's an increase of humanitarian moves to help these people, instead of politically motivated actions on both sides of the english channel. andrew simmons al jazeera kelly. so had an audi 0. we're going to tell you why.

a long process since that change started in sudan during such process. many discussions were made and many initiatives were proposed by various parties, the prime minister himself proposed to initiated and during our meetings and the transitional partners council or the sovereignty council with the cabinet of ministers. we made maximum effort. but we couldn't reach a breakthrough. and at that point, we were left with 3 options, the best of which was the move we had taken, who was it was completely agreeable to the prime minister himself of the work. we did not make such a move on our own. russell said he has more from cartoon people have been asking whether really the prime minister of the lamb duke was aware of the call, or was a part of the call of the admitted to take over into come to not. and when i into waived mr. hum, duke. i asked that question,
what are you aware of that some people say that you are part of it. he very clearly am vague term and they said that he did not know that the military takeover is coming. he course somehow some, he was suspicious of that but that one of the it happened, it didn't happen with a consultation with him. but now the deputy chairman of the 70 council of sudan and the head of the rep with support was the strongest. the region of the army says that actually they have discussed with the prime minister of the lamb duke as well . and that he need the military take over 3 years to the day that it took place. so it is quite a bold one. will see what mr. duke is going to say regarding these allegations, but definitely it will have that pin occasion because as you mentioned that he was on the how to how they're as when they were negotiating a deal. and people who are already the question his independence. but he says that he's going to be fully independent, and now off there, there is a legation. people are going to question more,
he's less to see more and that is definitely going to make his job quite tough and also could potentially support anger among the people who are already will pause in this deal. farmers in india. so they're going to continue with the protest despite the government announcing the controversial agricultural laws will be withdrawn. their mocking the 1st anniversary of the protest against that legislation. well, let's cross over to our correspondent elizabeth per annum whose life for us in new delhi. talk us through what's going on there 1st, elizabeth, ha. oh, no problem. yeah, and these singly protests i taught being one of the biggest and demonstrations and thousands of people have gathered today. the child again from the neighboring states and honey on to celebrate on things. while no one else has been able to achieve during the 7 years that problem and that in the morning has been passed and

to form firms and not the locals. and of course, the long running anger has been fueled by the government's decision in a 2019 to switch it deeper medical legions from taiwan and after 36 years to china. so that's triggered this and what we are expecting. we got the strong pip, keep it who arrived, but we are hearing that the crowd a gathering for a 3rd day and i should note that the 72 out cookies was lifted this morning. so people are allowed back on the streets. it's whether or not they gather to cause balance and certainly continue the burning of these my infrastructure and government buildings in the capital authorities in the french island. mawson e have ordered a curfew, follow several days of unrest. protesters looted shops instead of barricades on thursday as demonstrations against tova 19 restrictions turned violent. many in the french overseas territory opposed measures imposed by paris, including compulsory vaccinations and protesters have gathered in peruse capital
