10:02 am
over an economy tills to bankruptcy. people have been demanding the president, the prime minister, and the government resign. blaming them for mismanagement and corruption premium. a hinder roger boxer has now bowed to pressure. donna's power to hammer them out one given i get weird as a leader who always listen to the people. i'm asking you. i mean, what do we do now? now, we won't, melinda. we won't melinda, hidden him up. that means i do not need to resign. bussed in from the round the country, a pro government crowd confronted protest as in colombo, who have spent weeks calling for change. some were injured white tents and posters were torn up. some said the police did not act fast enough to stop them. but shortly after for just as regrouped and launched a counter attack, targeting the buses that transported them even destroying luxury vehicles and
10:03 am
houses belonging to roger folks. loyalists the government imposed a country wide curfew until wednesday morning and deployed the military to disperse the crowds. it had the opposite effect. large crowds gathered opposite the president's office, vowing not to be intimidated. prison go tub is moved to sacrifice his brother doesn't seem to be working. or let's talk terminal life now from colombo manella. things are a little common up at the curfew has been extended. that's right. initially, we were expecting it to be lifted as of this morning at 7 o'clock, but as things intensified late into the night yesterday, the authorities decided to extend that island wide curfew into the early hours of wednesday morning. but as you can see around me may be over my shoulder. i mean,
10:04 am
the one thing that's as large as life is a smouldering bus. and there are many of those dotting colombo are basically remnants of watch protested. had set on the buses that brought all of these my him the roger boxes, supporters for that meeting that the prime minister had before. they then went and unleashed violence on protesters who had been calling for the resignation of the raja fox brothers and the government. so a large military presence in colombo that we've been driving around and seeing, we hear that this is the same around the country as well as the authorities try to get a handle on and get the situation of tensions that really went out of control last evening. i under under basically some semblance of normalcy and control. so that seems to be working so far. we haven't seen these are sort of a groups going around looking for my mind, roger,
10:05 am
some points to supporters or mobs that had created violence. things seem to have sort of been, are quietened down, but despite the curfew, there are people on the streets as you can probably see, milling around, even this burning bus. right. as you said in your report, the resignation of the prime minister has not satisfied to protest to see what the full resignation of the government was been responsible. so far, the government is remaining silent about the whole thing with hat. obviously the resignation of the prime minister now. 7 ah, ironically all of these weeks that we've seen the protest is demanding the resignations of the raja boxes and the government. a we've had a series of resignations. we had the entire cabinet at one stage resigning on mass . we had new appointments. but as very quickly, once the prime minister handed in his resignation,
10:06 am
are we heard that that resignation had been gathered to making it very official. but it's unlikely to appease protests is, i mean this entire campaign which is going into, it's 30 a d, now has been on the slogan. gotta go home. advantage was also roger puck says, go home or the government go home and all 225. that's alluding to all the parliamentarians for them to resign. because people have reached the end of their tolerance levels. and that was very amply reflected in the sort of fight back yesterday. the pushback for the violin. so it's highly unlikely that the sacrifice of the prime minister to show that they were doing something is going to be adequate. they have kept insisting that they want a clean sweep of the boards and they're not going to stop back ham painting that happens. or, i mean, i will, they will never, man, thanks very much. indeed, when often i was reporting from a colombo,
10:07 am
the marco's family looked set to return to power in the philippines. beneficial results from the presidential election suggests that ferdinand marcus junior could become the next leader 36 years after his father was overthrown in a revolution. to milon duncan reports. not from manila, ah, as vote counting got turned away, it appeared for it didn't mark as junior was searching ahead. he's the son and name sake of the former philippine president described by many as a dictator and ousted in 1986 revolution or that b. i call this not done, i'm not at all work, but i wanted to issue a short statement. and it essentially is a statement of gratitude to all of those or been with us in this long and sometimes very difficult journey than 10 candidates are running. but for the presidency venue,
10:08 am
it's widely considered a 2 person race, vice president, lenny robledo was also the leader of the opposition, is trailing behind marcus junior. initial results show a lead. so white poll experts believe it is unlikely ru bred or can catch up. ok, sending your horse up in the wilder. i'm with you in the belief that the elections must respect the full voice and well of the people my life. it is important that the people continue their belief and respect for democracy. more than 60000000 filipinos voted for the successor to president rodrigo to 30 in one of ages, oldest democracies. 6 0, here and one of the biggest polling presence in manila voting day was marked with frustration. about malfunctioning boating machines. people lined up for hours and refused to leave, even as the pause officially closed. with pro mom brittany villano. both all we
10:09 am
want to be here, the one we want to see our ballots going through the machines and see the receipt. referral for max biggest visible coma. but they knew both of us. we refused to leave our posts. this election is too important. and every vote is secret. the election commission assures the public that it is very much in control, and the sanctity of the votes is still protected. a marcus presidency would mean an extra ordinary return for a family that was forcibly removed from power 3 decades ago. threw people power and could become the most consequential election in recent philippine history. alive to manila now and there is a jamila standing by for cinderella. so the market probably could be on the cusp of returning to pow when will you know for sure, the shape of things well, it could take a few days, nick, because canvassing, which is a process where, you know, the independent,
10:10 am
full watchers watch groups and the commission elections actually physically can't physically count the ballots, but there have been some delays because of the voting delays from the day before canvassing should have started late monday. it has been moved 1 pm today, but since not all of the physical balance of arrived, it has been moved to tuesday night. but traditionally though, this usually takes a few days after which are the commissioner elections will before the commission elections announced who actually emerge as the next president or vice president of the philippines. but you know, if we look at the leads of arm bongo marcus junior are and, and the lead is millions with vice president. lenny roberto, the leader of the opposition trailing behind many experts believe that it's unlikely that there's going to be a big change there. have been some questions over the processor. your report made mention of malfunctioning vote machines. what motoring obama?
10:11 am
well what happened was, as early pulls opened at around $670.00 am local time, but it took only just a few hours before some vote counting machines actually broke down. so we've spoken to people, voters who have been lining up for 1012 hours just really desperate to close at to vote. and even as polls already closed, they were still not able to vote the river. there were also reports that there were some vote stragglers, as described as those who refused to leave. wanted to make sure their voter candid accounted to wanted to make sure that you know their ballots are electronically ingested into that machine and that they get the receipt. now these are just some of the many other issues nic surrounding their boating election to day election was once again mired with violence in the southern region. have been de now at least 6 people have been killed. a stand off has been report that the ongoing into capitol of latino dos or province. i mean there's
10:12 am

10:13 am
initially, president charles michele visited odessa to day, he saw with his own eyes what the block see me with for the 1st time in decades in odessa there is no usual movement at the merchant fleet. no port work, ordinary life connected with the sea is blocked by russia, and this is a blow not only to ukraine, without our agricultural exports. dozens of countries around the world are already on the brink of food shortages. and overtime, the situation can become frankly terrible. the 90 thanks to the keys, russian president vladimir putin of trying to rewrite history during his speech to mark victory de the annual celebration of the defeat of nazi germany in 1945 ended with poets display in moscow. earlier putin led the traditional parade, he told russian forces that fights in ukraine for the motherland and its future. it didn't denounce victory in ukraine, nor give any indication of when he thought the war whitehead,
10:14 am
what we saw president couldn't do is, it is, is give a version of revisionist history that took the form of disinformation that we have seen to commonly as the russian playbook ah, now what is fortunate is that we're all aware of reporters around the world are aware. europeans are where americans are aware of the disinformation factory that president putin and the kremlin seem to be on. but so the suggestion that this war that was prompted by directed by president putin was prompted by western aggression or western plans is patently false. and absurd? yes sir, they are now to sierra echoed rules growing problem with dang, bivens fighting between rival drug call told in the prison leaves dozens dead old on the run, close under a 100 and arkansas where a conference of experts is working on getting the kinks out of the supply chain.
