uranium production restarted a day earlier at the plant in defiance of a shaky international agreement. the center right candidate in ecuador's presidential elections has claimed to victory better and banker so won over 50 percent of the runoff vote he campaigned for open markets and foreign investment as a way to restart the economy which has been hit hard by the pen demick. to germany now where it is a dual for angela merkel's mantle as the head of the conservative ticket germans go to the polls this autumn to elect a new government and after 16 years as chancellor angela merkel is not running again now her christian democratic union party and its bavarian sister party the christian social union are close to deciding who will replace merkel as the conservative candidate for chancellor and these 2 politicians are in the running
11:08 am
has already succeeded merkel in one respect he is the christian democrats party leader and also the state premier of north rhine-westphalia he's a close ally of america but marco surtur also wants the job he is the bavarian state premier and leader of the bavarian preston social union soldiers national profile has grown during the pandemic. and the chief political correspondent melinda crane is standing by belinda walk us through how ultimately the candidate will be chosen. it will be chosen ultimately by the leadership of the c.d.u. of the chancellor's christian democrats as mr certain self put it it is the big sister of these 2 conservative sister parties and he said he will respect its decision if they want him to be the candidate candidate then indeed he is glad to do it now the leadership of the c.d.u.
11:09 am
is meeting today and we've heard that there will be a decision within the week that apparently is what the leadership wants of what mr soda wants what's noteworthy here is that actually mr nash it has the bulk of his support in this city your leadership group within the parliamentary group of the c.d.u. and within the population at large there are many who would prefer this to circa it seems that the c.d.u. leadership is concerned about a shift in the balance of power toward the very and that just shows that that between these 2 sisters there is quite a bit of rivalry and therefore this is by no means a done deal mr lasher himself thinks he has a very good chance is to come up the ladder some very interesting dynamics will and then of course it's coming at a time when you know the c.d.u. has taken a big dip in the polls tell us in terms of you know looking at the broader public who is writing highest only look at the opinion polls. opinion polls at the
11:10 am
beginning of april showed that absolutely it's mr souter who is far and away the more popular candidate in the population at large 54 percent of those surveyed said they would want to sit there where it's just 19 percent for mr lasher so there is a very good deal of support within a larger population and we've seen that in recent state elections where the c.d.u. did not fare well in fact last year the vote remains with green party. stuff and lash it has been positioning himself as being the most committed of the 2 to upholding merkel's legacy how far is that strategy going to go for him you think. well what some people would consider his strength can also be seen as a weakness he represents a continuity for the c.d.u. a middle of the road pragmatic leader well established there he might change
11:11 am
in the wind in the mode of the american for self but for all of those who are frustrated particularly with the c.d.u. leadership during the pandemic with the government's handling of the pandemic with the scandal over mass produce you're left with in the c.d.u. they will be looking toward new leadership and certainly that is what mr sort of represents he's not a great deal younger than mr lasher but he almost looks like a new generation he's more innovative he's older and he has made it very clear that he's interested in working with the greens and as i mentioned they have in fact been gaining in popularity nationally so in many ways mr surrogate the older choice mr lash it the more cautious choice but there are some within the city you who say that if the leadership has the party's interests at heart it will take mr surtur because he is the one who can help the party prevail in september the crane with
