9:02 am
enormous problem. people are waiting for and wanting in government and we'll do everything we can about. so what do i guarantee want in this 2nd attempt at voting? i wanted everybody, one of the less correctly politicians did, and i hope that people will grow up and get some real change later. the 1st thing to do is cut the re, hand to co corruption group to a lot of this anger is directed against the chief prosecutor of the country who many hold to be linchpin and the corrupt networks of politicians. all the guards and the judas are they finally won, the chief prosecutor will investigate the real crime or not tried to protect the mafia. the markets of this small protest parties program is in its name, rise up matthew out. it sparked of last year's master ministrations and the will for change. we have to change the justice system holds just system or the police
9:03 am
department. because to go go to get it. we have no justice. we have no democracy. whether that change, those really come depends on the biggest opposition party the populist. there is such a people of talk show hosts and singers lab retrieve enough. the polls show them on track to in 1st place, but their program seems somewhat vague and undefined. boeing, say we fight to change everything we've seen in the past. the administration works the whole way of thinking for me and me for in a, on the outskirts of sophia final pre election meeting of the group party with boss boy. cool boris of rules bo guerria for over a decade. he's fighting a losing battle to keep his hold on power. still the supporters seem defy, and even europe still mistakes, but they can fix them because everyone makes mistakes. but it's likely that the old face of bulgarian politics will be gone and not fear come back after this election
9:04 am
. the crossover now to d. w correspondent, barbara diesel, who filed that report from sophia. hi barbara. the previous election in april produced a fragmented parliament that fail to form a viable coalition. will it be different this time? that is not quite sure, michael, and that is the big problem and danger in the 2nd round of elections because people if then again, failed would become incredibly frustrated. however, the main opposition parties are talking together and they say that their best chance is to fall minority government and let themselves be supported by the form of communist party who is the day called socialist party when they don't want to form an alliance with. but who might support their program of cleaning up the country and really changing and renewing the political system at the position has
9:05 am
a problem in so far as their political ideas are quite divergent. and so it's not quite clear what might emerge at the end. but among the guarantee, the desire for change, the will for change. it's really quite strong over that report that we just heard from you makes it very clear that the voters are exhausted by having to deal with the mafia and corruption in the political system. give us some perspective, what is the corruption they're referring to and how does it affect people's daily lives? it does affect everybody all the time. if you have to go to hospital, you have to pay the doctors in order to get good treatment. or in order to, to get certain certain pharmaceutical products, if it's been subs in the street. the best thing to do is just to pay some money to get rid of the charges. if you want to build something, for instance, in the countryside, if you need a permit for a building, then you'll pay the guy in the office some money in order to get that permit and so
9:06 am
on and so forth. so even for normal bulgarians, this system is a rip off. however, if you look at the big picture, if you look at public procurement, public building, for instance, if you look at infrastructure projects and so on, so forth. the only guards and the mafia everywhere, and it is as the one lady we saw in the report said, you have to come to the tentacles in order to really get somewhere in this country . you have to cut their channel, go tentacles with the corruption so deeply rooted in the country. how hard will it be for whoever wins to cut those tentacles as you put it? it is incredibly difficult because what you have to do is really route 3 form of the whole system. you have to put non corrupt people in key government posts. you have to have oversight, you have to have a judiciary that works. and that really does is sort of go after the real crime and
9:07 am
that does go, that's not afraid to go off the map, the bosses. and of course, there's always a threat of violence hanging over a certain connections and networks here. we just have to look at that united states to revoke the invoke the magnet ski to go after number off the gary and only gars. so it is a really bad situation and it will be incredibly hard to work to change the country, but a lot will guarantee i willing to participate in this at above or fazel in sofia. thanks much. the finance ministers of the g. 20 group of wealthy nations have backed a global minimum corporate tax rate of 15 percent. the deal aim says stop countries setting low taxes to attract investment for multi nationals, especially tech joins doing business worldwide. the endorsement by the g 20, which accounts were 80 percent of the global economy will help the deal take effect internationally. a historic setting for
