8:20 pm
a new government parliamentary elections were held last march. but the coalition wasn't announced until a month ago, after being sworn in by the dutch king wilhelm alexander. the government will now decide whether to extend, what is europe toughest cubits 19 restrictions step vasa is in the hague. nearly a year then atlanta had this caretaker government off and the previous government had to step down and it's a child care benefits scandal. so the longest negotiation since in history basically basically has taken place since the election has been nearly 300 days now . now this government is being florida and right behind me at the palace in the hey, the main issue here is that the main that the prime minister is going to be the say . and the for coalition partners from the previous government are still the government today. menaces are also, many of them are the same. some have, have moved around to have different positions, but it's still very much
8:21 pm
a similar cabinets as the melons have before. so the main question is, what change can they bring? and also the damage have been raising really hot here in abilene. so one of the issues is, can this trust be restored? that happens during this political crisis. but also during this been that make the government has been criticized for not having a vision here. busy a strategy during discovery and that may be the last 2 years. the knowledge was also quite late with the fact to nation policies. there is a strict are locked down in place in the netherlands compared to other european countries. one of the reasons for that is that the boost the campaign was also fairly late to start. so there's a lot of need here for, for the vision for us and the european union have imposed new sanctions on nicaragua. and officials after elections that have been described as rigged, it comes on the same day. president daniel taker is sent to be sworn in for a 4th term. he was re elected in november in a vote that the u. s. and the
8:22 pm
e. you both called a sham, several opposition candidates were arrested during the campaigning and independent election observers were banned. you sanctions target to take as children who serve as his advisors, as well as the police force and the electro body latch in america, editor, lucy, and human. as mono from santiago in chile, the european union does not recognize the results of november's elections. neither does the united states, canada. it's a long, long list. i think. the really interesting question is, who is actually going to attend the inauguration? that is a representative of china, russia, iran, and venezuela, cuba and bolivia, as well as argentina. interestingly enough, just a short while ago mexico decided to pull out mexico usually does not get involved in these disputes. and since representatives turn observations of all countries in
8:23 pm
the region, regardless of whether the elections are considered legitimate or not. but what happened was that none of the competitive candidates were allowed to run. they were either most of them or the vast majority of them were imprisoned. or were forced to go into exile. and so the election was widely viewed as a sham. in fact, the ortega government said that it had won by 80 percent or more of the votes, even though they were there was a record abstention rate in that election. and it's so there really is very little credibility, but at this point, my impression is that the president, daniel ortega and his wife or asylum, what do you really don't care how they are being viewed abroad? they do have strong allies, as i mentioned, russia, china, iran are also a to an, a certain extent tricky. and of course, governments like venezuela that can help provide petrol to that country oil health care workers in india as well as the over sixty's and are eligible to have corona
8:24 pm
virus. booster shots omicron infections are being blamed for spike in cases. experts fear a repeats of last year's high infection rate has traditional mask gatherings of worshippers. aren't you soon? have the motel has more from new delhi? oh, this is one of the millions of most of those as being rows out in india as of now front line workers and people about 60 with underline health conditions are eligible to receive these. there are 2 vaccine for this. the indian need ask any car called coffee, she is, and the home grown vaccine cause call vaccine. people are advised to get the same vaccine. they got the last time i came in to see jeanette in boarding for you to get vaccinated because the cases aint using an as a to 0 hypertensive patient. so we don't want to pick any time. i think the booster will be helpful in boosting over the phone to have here working with us runs to get to the vaccine. the completed martin at 9 months, all of us have completed that month. and so i guess it makes sense for you guys to
8:25 pm
get the total jobs in india have now cross one and a half 1000000000 just last week. teams between 15 and 18 started getting there. those are, all of this comes as corbett, 19 cases, fuels by the omicron very, have search across the country. fronting many states to step up restrictions. authorities have all to suspended election valley ahead of state falls. next month, no hospitalizations from coven 19 has remained relatively low, especially among the vaccinated. while most eligible people have received their 1st doors, many austin to receive their 2nd. so bridging that gap and getting more people to be fully vaccinated is the big challenge and focus for the government. anyone using public transport in italy now has to show a vaccine certificate before the contract, as the government tries to stop the spread of corona virus. the travel passes are
8:26 pm
available to everyone who's had both jobs or recently recovered from cope at 19. the rise me italian infection rate is particularly concerning teachers and students have gone back to school after the christmas holiday. millions of children in uganda finally returned to class. after almost 2 years, they've suffered the world's longest disruption to schools because of the pandemic precedent. you a re mas 70 credits uganda as high vaccination rate for the reopening. but you can't, and officials expect to 3rd of children will not return. most public schools haven't offered virtual lessons since closure in march of 2020 education sector as been he had ah, you know, it is one of the biggest sectors in the country are having our own over 15000000 students in the country now are, but the ministry of education also tried to print our walk, which was a distributed country wait for the bed is to see how do i says g r. that should win
8:27 pm
well at home. i think the schools have in have been closed and it has impacted us for so long and a lot. ah, depending on which family you come from, the poor, the poor children from poor families have had to go long days working on the other . going to the market, see their parents? others are staying home alone looking after their siblings as their parents work. and we have seen the number of pregnant girls increase the number. the european union is under pressure to relax the rule that forces airlines to use or lose the airport landing slots. the left hand group says it will have to fly 18000 unnecessary flights this winter to comply. before the pandemic, airlines were required to use 80 percent of their slots or risk losing them to a rival figure has been reduced to 50 percent. steph, and the key,
8:28 pm
micah is the european commission spokesman for health, food safety and transport. he says the commission has been reducing airport slots to avoid having empty planes. of course, she doesn't make sense to have empty planes flying around the world doesn't make sense economically. a doesn't make sense ecological. that is clear. and exactly, for this reason that the commission already 2 years ago as thinkin 2 very important measures to avoid empty flights flying all over the world. the 1st measure is the fact that we reduce the so called slot rules. normal times air. air operators have to use 80 percent of their slots to keep them for the next season. we reduce this a slow percent that she the beginning of the pandemic, even to 0 over sense. because it began the pandemic, as you may remember, almost or even 90 percent of civilisation flights did not state police. and gradually this was again increased and now it's 50 percent that has to be used by
8:29 pm
the airport operators. that's based on, on scientific elements that we have from euro control. we know that in the winter, this winter, already 73 to 78 percent of the flights before the pandemic, half started again. so with our 50 percent, we are well below what is now happening very difficult words to say that airports or air line operators do not have to use their slots when there are situations of a severe pandemic. as is the case now, in many parts of the world, the big majority parts of the world is considered to be high risk area. so in any case, airlines can also invoke these justified non use rule to not make use of the sauce. so we have a whole series of measures that we have taken to guarantee on the one hand that we don't have empty flights. but on the other hand,
8:30 pm
also to ensure your and my connectivity. the pilot plane has had a narrow escape in california. a metro train plowed into his aircraft, which is crash, landed onto the tracks after losing power on take off the police did manage to pull the pilot to safety seconds before impact. he was take the hospital in los angeles for medical checks for the police to be hailed as heroes. having saved his life, ah, this is al jazeera, these are the top stories, us and russian diplomats of wrapped up the 1st day of security talks aimed deescalate intentions on the border with ukraine. the us and its allies of want of strong measures. if russia lorn, she is military action, john hall has been following that story from london briefings in the last half hour by both sides indicate that they have not achieved any major breakthrough on monday
