8:02 am
ah, i'm glad else as well come to the program. sedans, prime minister has resigned following months of political turmoil. abdullah, ham doc said it was not possible for him to restore order and repose, sharing agreement with the military after the army stage to cool. last year hom dog was reinstated to head up a transition back to civilian government under the weekend of protest in sudan. the quickly descended into violence. at least 2 people were killed by security forces. after thousands of pro democracy demonstrators took to the streets, dozens have died in mid unrest since prime minister abdullah hum doc signed to polish him, deal with the military following a crew in october. but he now admits that hasn't worked out. a new thinking is
8:03 am
needed. oh, in our local massacre, i decided to give back the responsibility an o and announced my resignation as prime minister locum to give a chance to another man, a woman of this noble country and was allowed to continue leading odyssey inaction when after work and help it passed through what's left of the transitional period to a civilian democratic country. while aboard me colon my the buck graham and i'm willing to go. now i don't element any and demography among the military and civilian leaders have been sharing power since it also cracked. omar bashir was ousted in 2090 after 30 years and charge for elections are currently planned for july, births with hum, dock gone, and sudan roiled by unrest. the road to democracy looks increasingly fragile.
8:04 am
earlier today i spoke to collude courier. she's management a managing director of a think tank inside strategy partner. and i asked her why hom doc decided to step down. now, i think he came to realize just how unpopular his big agreement would, would hon on the 21st of november was he had expected that, that disagreement would effectively end the coo and would give him powers to be able to set the transition back on course but of course, as soon as the qu happened, this is no longer a transition, add. the military showed that it wasn't, and the good faith actor that it was expected to be. and in any case, people had reservations about the extent to which it was a partnership. in the 1st thing based on a mark him. and so really he was unable to work beyond beyond her that these last few days didn't to which the military was willing to return to the violent oppression and suppression of protestantism. we saw before this government took shape on my so what does this resignation now mean for saddam
8:05 am
well, any one who comes in now as a prime minister would be drinking from the same poisoned chalice. any one, any new p m, would be seen as an accomplice to the coo, much in the way that our ham dog belatedly came to be seen. but also like hm thought they would also have very little executive space within to function. they wouldn't be able to choose their own cabinets that wouldn't be able to make their appointment. they would be able to undo appointments made by the crew regime. and so it's unlikely that anyone will want to want to step forward and anyone who at least who genuinely wants a democratic transformation will want to step forward now and to handle shoes. what makes far more sense is to restart the amendment that the sort of transition and find a new political agreement in new political basis and in new constitutional basis that actually pays attention to what the resistance committees, the people on the street, the per pro democracy forces have been saying and not just sort of find ways to
8:06 am
divide up and political places for political parties, which is very much what we saw in 2019 this time round. there has to be in agreement with more people can buy into and it will genuinely be process driven rather than just oriented around, you know, political structures. i'm, we're will be lots of fighting over who gets what position colker from inside strategy partners and cartoon. thank you. very much for your insight. please in south africa say they have arrested a man in connection with the devastating fire the country's parliament building. the suspect is due to appear at court later this week. the blaze which took several hours to bring under control got at the historic chamber of the national assembly in cape town. the fire had already been burning for hours when security guards discovered it at around 6 in the morning, fire crews raced to the scene, but were unable to stop the flames from spreading to the national assembly building
8:07 am
where south africa's parliaments it. that is a very sad day for our democracy because parliament is the home of our democracy. and parliament is also as the d g. a key point em all met just will be investigated. the police have started to investigate the forensic department here, public works easier. we all together, reinforcements were called and some 60 fire fight as eventually brought the blaze under control, but not before it had done extensive damage. visiting the scene, the south african president, serial rama post are also promised for inquiry. i believe somebody is being held right now and they have the question, but they need to go a lot, a lot deeper into how this type of event can take place and
8:08 am
what measures we will need to take going forward. only security staff are believed to have been present when the plays began. there have been no reports of injuries. let's get you up to speed on some of the other stories making headlines around the world today. in a call with ukraine's president vladimir zalinski us president joe biden said the united states and its allies will quote, respond decisively if russia further invades ukraine biden is also backing diplomatic efforts to resolve the standoff talks between us and russian officials. a scheduled in geneva, later this month. you as defense secretary lloyd austin has tested positive for cove at 19. he's planning to isolate at home for 5 days, set out an official guide lights and austin says he last met president biden more than a week before he began to feel unwell. austin is a fully vaccinated charity. israel's prime minister natalie bennett, says
8:09 am
a 4th cove at 19 vaccine. those is now approved for people over 60 and for health care workers, thirties are battling a search and all mcclellan variant infections nationwide. daily cases i expected to start his hitting, fresh balance is again broken out during protests against corona, virus restrictions in the netherlands. thousands turned out in amsterdam to demonstrate against the national lockdown imposed a week before christmas. some foot, they say no to the lockdown, no to the government's measures. what is their limit? this demonstrator asks, it's just the latest demonstration in the netherlands against the government's curbs. aimed at stopping omicron police band. the protest that didn't stop people from turning out. many say they're not afraid of catching the virus. i'm here because i like to live and i don't think we should be scared. a stop we're living
8:10 am
because we're sad that we're all going to die. i like to live. i'm not me. my vaguely restriction measures have nothing to do with my health. i mean there are people who want to impose control on us and take all our freedom. hey, i'm here because i think that we all must be free. well, what i most i scuffles broke out as police broke up the demonstration. it violated the current locked on rules in the netherlands, according to which only 2 people are allowed to meet at once. non essential shops, restaurants, bars and theaters remain closed until at least the 14th of january. announcing the measures the prime minister made clear he had no choice. only concentrate on the current is spreading even faster than we feared. and so we need to intervene now to prevent a much worse outcome there as a precaution at forgery. but the measures have also outraged the vocal anti
8:11 am
lockdown protesters. and as long as the government measures are in force, they say they will continue to take to the streets. germany takes over the chair of the g 7 this year, putting it in the midst of some major challenges facing this club of rich democracies. it's an early test on the world stage for the lou chancellor, all of shots after he took over from england. michael, the pandemic will likely dominate the agenda with the g 7 under pressure to do more to end the huge inequality and access to vaccines around the world. and climate change shows is expected to push his idea of a climate club. that's a plan to help like minded countries coordinate, their emission targets. and one key question will scholes perceive us president joe biden's efforts to, to get democracies to rally together against china. and we are joined by the
8:12 am
w's chief in the nation as a richard walker. richard, this is all a short w as a host of a big international group following in ongoing michael's footsteps there. what can we expect from him yet they are pretty big and footsteps are following. of course, aren't they? gerhard angler miracle in office for 16 years. she chaired to g 7 summit during her time. so that summit, coming up in june this year will be all of shots, his real debut on this kind of premier level of the international stage as host. but as finance minister in his previous role over the past 4 years, he certainly has, he had exposure to this kind of level of diplomacy. and his people point to something of a success last year where we, he was, was one of the driving forces behind a we reported on this the idea of a global minimum tax for corporations to try to prevent especially big tech giants
8:13 am
from kind of free writing on taxes by setting up their taxes in low tax economies. so that was very much a no la schultz initiative and i think we can expect to see more initiatives from him like that on the world stage. but what he is not is the kind of like chest thumping guy who's going to stand up on the stage and say, this is the way we're going to do things. he's softly spoken. he has that in common with angle america. well shows wants to use its presidency of the g 7 to develop into a climate club. what, what's his plan? yes, this is the prime example. we can expect to hear this expression a climate club a quite a bit this year. now it's an idea that it's been going around in academic circles for a few years and is trying to tackle this problem that we've had with climate change treaties over the years. that there aren't enough incentives for countries to really follow through on the promises that they make. and at the heart of this is cost. if you want to cut climate change, if you want to fight climate change,
8:14 am
you need to raise the price of polluting carbon and countries worry that if they do that in their country, then companies might just up sticks to other countries, especially big industries and move their operations there where they don't pay such a high price for carbon. so the idea with a carbon climate club is that you get a group of like minded countries that want to press ahead that set roughly equivalent standards on the pricing of carbon on the pricing of pollution and other things. and they agree to trade under favorable terms with each other. and crucially, countries that are outside it, don't get these fav favorable terms. so that's an incentive for those countries to join. so you can expect all of shorts to be bring this up at the g 7 this year and try to use it as a springboard for this idea. so how likely is this to be successful then? how big is germany is an all of shots influence in this club of rich countries? what i think is he certainly has potential as a mobilize to get something like this going. but the big question about the climate
8:15 am
club basing it around the g 7 would be, what is it enough if you don't have really big economies like china involved. and you already have industry associations in germany saying exactly that. if china is not involved in something like this, than what can it really achieve, that kind of opens up to the big question about the relevance of the g 7. whether the g 20, this much broader grouping that includes china. also, countries from the global south is more the kind of forum that to get ideas like this, really a to take effect that up as chief international editor. it's a walk other. thank you richard. now, what's your biggest wish for the new year? if it's an end to the pandemic, maybe you're in good company that seems to be the most prominent new you wish around the world. so we send out a correspondence to ask people how they see the year ahead. when i keep myself informed all the time,
8:16 am
that is important. so i can only advise people to remain cautious and to somehow learn to deal with it. mcguire be found, we're lucky. hopefully in 2022. indonesia will be more advanced and hopefully the corona virus passed quickly and indonesia can bryce again in the future. both the economy and people's lives were suspended more let's hope that people will get vaccinated soon and we can ensure that the low mutations to not evolve, it become more aggressive than the ones we already have had. it's still existing, maxine still work for us, you know, but most importantly, i hope to feel gets out of the mind of, you know, everybody knows as a separate over to shot. i have dual citizenship. i'm also american that makes a difference or not. i am really upset and how the subject of vaccinations is being politicized. and i feel a little powerless, and we are hoping that are the highest population would have been vaccinated

8:20 am
a now from a school in the heart of berlin, as dw splitting the correspondent l shows. but measures are now being taken in germany to prevent the spread of corona virus in schools. while the main measure measure being taken here in schools, for example, here in belin will be a testing every day, testing is otherwise for kids this week, and then it will be 3 times a week. so this is a preventive measures. and even if children test positive,
