to spread across southern iraq more than a dozen protesters have been killed in confrontations with security forces oh by the scenes various political parties are negotiating to form a governing coalition in iraq but talks ont going entirely smoothly among many things there are major differences over the parties asked you to towards the u.s. . i don't run down to zero as iran can report stuff from baghdad. the big winner in iraq contested election is expected to be this man looked at also that who confidently expects his party to lead the next government once the revised result has been confirmed by the supreme court there's no date for when the supreme court will issue its ruling but it's likely the shia cleric will form a coalition he's a self-proclaimed nationalist suspicious of both iran and the us other shia parties are far from united behind him shia islam is the predominant sect particularly in southern iraq so there's large election win means his party they say don't lie and
2:12 pm
will choose the next pm to do so will need to make deals with other parties. one of the largest is the victory alliance led by the current prime minister hydrilla body the victory alliance a body is the only choice also there has for prime minister. if there is a better candidate we are open to any better candidate however i personally think he is in the right place and the situation. we are in the right place to choose somebody who we know and i would like to see him in power but also that he is looking beyond just a shia base her coalition partners because of his nationalist starts the communist party of iraq has joined forces with him. this kind of for alliance metry communist . movement is probably surprising to many. people but they
2:13 pm
didn't come as a surprise it was an hour of calm common activity that come on participation in the protest movement over the years two thousand and seventeen but the smaller parties may not give all southern the influence he so desires over government now his supporters all getting angry so he'll be looking at exactly who can help him to fill his agenda. puts us in the cell for the demanding energy and economic reform concern also that because many of his supporters are involved with thoughts of law and he said all talks about forming a coalition must be suspended until the protesters do. his call has been popular political observers who have a believe that iraq is headed to once again for a period of political instability that could be dangerous. over the next government is not formed soon then that will have implications the first one will be the own going economic crisis the second one is the potential reemergence of i sell and
2:14 pm
other affiliated terrorist groups around baghdad and anbar this is all happening in the midst of the rising tensions between iran and the u.s. and this impacts the iraqi political scene. the u.s. and iran are both big players in iraqi politics blocs allied to one or the other any government will have to balance its relationship with the americans and the iranians to try and stop iraq from becoming a political battlefield by proxy as well as managing the demands of the iraqi people imran khan al jazeera. get a weather update next here on al-jazeera then. i didn't realize how much my. my home made to me budding and broken more people fleeing as a californian wildfire show no response.

2:18 pm
candidates security at polling stations is a major concern after the killing of dozens of people in the last week. votes are being counted in cambodia's general election with the ruling party already predicting a landslide victory for prime minister hun sen human rights groups of call the poll a sham the main opposition was dissolved and its leaders jailed or exiled just of eighty percent of registered voters cast ballots let's go live now to phnom penh i was there as wayne hay is with us just over eighty percent we were talking about the opposition calling for people wayne to boycott the selection eighty percent is still a pretty high turnout. yes i think those figures are probably higher on the face of it than many people were expecting especially of course the opposition that you mentioned the banned cambodia national rescue party that had been calling for people to boycott but it's still around ten percent fewer people
2:19 pm
then turned up to vote in last year's local elections in which the c n r p did very very well in and the see an r.p.m. now saying look don't read too much into the voter turnout figures because they say that many people were forced to turn up and vote people who were threatened with losing their jobs losing their land losing other things like services in their villages or their areas if they could not prove that they did indeed turn up to vote so they felt there was an atmosphere of intimidation that led to perhaps higher numbers turning up to vote than perhaps they expected we have heard through a series of tweets from sam rainsy he's the exiled former leader of the c.n.r. peace saying that this senseless victory does nothing to resolve the political crisis that cambodia faces as a result of the regime's totalitarian drift over the past twelve months so he
2:20 pm
issued a series of tweets after the polls closed a few hours ago so when we hear the first results. we're expecting that at any moment now as you say the counting is well underway those results will be very much provisional we expect the official results to come out sometime in the next couple of months i should say a couple of weeks from the election committee but many people are saying look this is a formality anyway what people will be interested in though is the number of spoilt ballots because while as we mentioned the turnout appears to be quite high we are hearing that there were quite a lot of spoiled ballots of people turning up because they felt they had to they were forced into coming along out of fear of perhaps retribution if they did not but that they cast a spoil ballot so that will be something to watch out for if indeed the election committee releases those sorts of statistics when many thanks dittos as when today
2:21 pm
the live in phnom penh let's return to a story we told you about a few minutes ago about polls opening in mali for voters to choose a new president or to reelect the incumbent let's go live now to the capital bamako to syria's mohamed vaal is there one of the main issues for voters today mohammed. yeah voters here have been talking about the economy about security in particular were just a few of them after they voted and they told us that this vote is about peace mali has been unstable for years particularly during the last seven years after the military coup in two thousand and twelve and what came after that and civil war and then foreign armies coming to keep peace in the country and the continuation of attacks by armed groups across the country particularly in the center and then also this is a very important election because it is about stability but we have here
