the lira continues to lose its value against the dollar. it's affecting purchasing power, while a cash strapped state has so far failed to give the poor promised financial aid. all the while inflation is climbing things and the dollars exchange rates fluctuates every hour. that's why we don't put the prices on good side. and since they are adjusted auditory, the crisis began in late 2019 authorities use force to end the nationwide protest movement and thought about cabinet seats for more than a year. they form the government in september, but it hasn't met for 6 weeks now, because of new political divisions in lebanon. we're not like any other country where people are going to the stated things would change because we're not on the confronting a government. we going from the government, which is backed up with a very power militia, been laying around and age images as well, but many worn growing poverty could change that mother, mom,
12:34 am
we don't have money to buy bread and medicine for our sick family members. we can't cope with the situation. many have lost faith in a political class blamed for ruining the economy after decades of corruption. but for now, there is little hope for change. the road to recovery appears blocked. then there elisha zita, they root on doris, could be getting its 1st female president after lang left wing candidates show matter. castro claim victory in sunday's election. castro says that voters have reversed authoritarianism, but the governing national party also announced that its candidate had one well, minor one half hello, joins us live now from day home during capital to goosey guys back. and i know good to see you so ahead of the general election in doris. there were concerns over violence. how if things played out and are we any closer to hearing an official announcement as to who actually one that's right,
12:35 am
barbara. there was a lot of anxiety growing among a 100 citizens, especially in the lead up to the election during campaign season. and really since last year, since the end of the primary elections, in fact, there were more than 30 candidates across the country either for, for local offices, may oral candidates who were killed in the lead up to this election with many people anticipating that. but that violence would spill out under the streets on election day. but that wasn't the case. what we saw yesterday was very peaceful turn out of voters to the polls and a last night, even before the preliminary results were announced by the national electoral council. people were already on the streets celebrating what they said was a victory of the opposition party from left. his opposition leader, seal marquez through. now what we have a heard the latest numbers from the national electoral council is that only 51 percent a little bit more than 51 percent of the vote has been counted, but the general trend remains in the favor of the opposition candidate sumani
12:36 am
castle with 53.61 percent of the vote. so she is still in the lead, but only a little more than half of the votes have been counted. and this process seems to have been stalled a little bit. we believe that they may, that may have something to do with votes that, that some of the machines that were used for the voting failed and they had to be used as paper ballots. people needed to cast their votes in the way that it was done in the years prior. and that has actually slowed down the process. but honestly, people out here don't seem to be too concerned about that. the attitude from people on the street is that of joy celebration, a very different atmosphere than what we observed in the 2017 election. where violence did break out in the days following the announcement of the election result more than a dozen people were killed in riots. after electoral observers. international electoral monitors said that that victory by the governing national party was a victory that was achieved by fraudulent means. but that doesn't seem to be the
12:37 am
case right now. if anything people are celebrating an end of a 12 year rule by a single party here and 100, well certainly relief that we are seeing a repeat of the violence of last time. but there's a sense that these elections could have big implications just for who tourists, but potentially for the region. how would that work out? absolutely. the implications of these elections go far beyond the national borders of hundreds. but for starters, just the voter turnout. the number of people that went out to the poles on sunday hasn't been this high since the 1980s when hundreds returned to democratic rule. and if the national electoral council were to grant that victory to opposition leaders who might account. so she would become the 1st female president in the country's history. but we also have to consider the context of what's going on in the country. this is why this has of regional implications. these elections, honduras is one of the primary countries of origin for thousands of migrants that
12:38 am
make their way north towards the u. s. southern border and the site reasons such as corruption, ramping corruption, that seems to be endemic in this country. that that's grown over the 12 years. many blame the national governing party for allowing corruption to grow and intern fueling worsening of poverty. the poverty rate hunters to somewhere around 75 percent. so people across the political spectrum here, hunters are hungry for a change. and the most radical change is represented by the opposition candidate. so not a gas through so many people are hoping that a change in government, a change in, in, in what they've seen and live where for the last 12 years could improve conditions enough to stem that flow of migration. that historic flow of migration that we've witnessed over the past few years. barbara manual happened with the latest there from the capital of honduras to dig. lucy, got them anywhere. thank you. magdalena anderson has been elected
12:39 am
sweden's prime minister for the 2nd time in less than a week. the new vote in parliament was 5 days after she became the 1st woman to hold the office, but she lasted only a few hours in the position before her coalition collapsible sweden's green party withdrew support over anderson's budget proposal. this time, her social democratic party is forming a single party minority government. it's less than 7 hours to go until the clock strikes midnight in barbados and the country becomes the world's newest republic. the caribbean nation is cutting ties with the british monarchy around 400 years after english ships 1st arrived and turned the island into a sugar colony. built by hundreds of thousands of african slaves forbade us one independence from britain in 1966, but retained the queen elizabeth as its head of state. the monarch will be replaced by barbarian president, elect, dame sandra mason. the queen's son, prince charles,

12:41 am
don't even agree with it. some say that the prime minister imposed this decision on them. there was not a referendum that it was just simply an announcement made, but i have been reading up on barbie in history and i could tell you that for a long, long time they were at large segments of the population that were pushing for this to happen. they said that this was the, the last vestige, last remnant of the colonial period here in barbados. and it was a very, very brutal period at times when great britain had a colony here that was a, mainly a sugar plantation all run by slaves. so practically, everybody in barbados is a descendant of those slaves. but to talk about that a little more, i actually have a citizen of barbados and i, and he is with me right now. robert mullin. robert, thank you for joining us, marlene richard, i'm sorry, i just changed your name. that's terrible. but i can't say that you're a begun. if amber begun is what is a person from barbados to tell me why is it that you think that this is a good idea? because i know that you agree with the decision to become
