The Latest On municipal Elections

"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott

President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker

"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here

British Airways Announces Immediate Retirement of Boeing 747 Fleet

"Airways has just announced this morning a little bit in line with Qantas that effective, almost immediately They're going to be retiring. Their whole fleet of seven forty sevens is currently have thirty one still in operation, which be taken out of the fleet, now of course is because a few passenger numbers and less capacity needed because all of these airlines are very well. They kind of need to get to a point of being carbon neutral they they need. Need to be of good pr, so the older planes get out of the fleets much earlier, but I thought it was exactly that there's still four hundred sixteen flying around the world at the beginning of this month, and I love how many had been manufactured and fifteen, one, thousand, five, hundred, fifty eight from fifty years ago. So when you think one in three of those planes is still in active service is an extraordinary number, and when you think about the seven forty seven hundred. If we want to sort of get a little bit. Nostalgic, there's there's really no other airline air aircraft that that's come close me yesterday. Three Eighty you know came out as as a full length, double decker but when you think about the the golden age of flying, we can go back and look at seven Oh sevens. What those meant to Pan and and and Flying Clippers and concord, but there is something about the seven forty seven as well it was, it was quite democratic to with an airliner of charter charter brands as as much is of course. Some of the world's leading carriers got you around the world. Yes back in the fifties began when the airlines began to say the US. Airlines began to sites by. Can you build us a plane? Maybe that's two and a half times bigger than anything else we currently have. They came up with the Boeing. It was tested in the late sixties. It went into service in nineteen seventy, but there's something about that shape. The court, every kid's imagination you. Remember being young and looking up at the sky and you'd see that, Silhouette. You could be the most useless plane-spotter in the world. You knew what you were saying. And there's something also just was glamorous about the notion that you could go up the spiral staircase and and up in another floor of a plane. And oddly we may have seen double deckers committed with the a three eighty. It doesn't have the glamorous. Double Decker bus. There was something about being in that little secret part at the top, it was almost like being on a private plane attached to a regular commercial flight that was that was glamour, and there was there was kind of sexiness about, and there's something side I mean depending on where we get. Over the coming months I do wonder if there's an opportunity 'cause we've seen Qantas have been looking at. Marketing sort of these these last flights on on on the seven forty seven, and of course they're still other carriers who still have them We'll see move. The Japanese are lens some years ago. They retire the for a lot for all of the same reasons. I mean for the fact that they are gas guzzlers. They don't have the most efficient engines that they they are. They are allowed. There is of course a new generation of a seven forty seven and it seems that the president of the United. States will be getting a few of them, but Do you think that this is all a bit knee-jerk or this is? This goes with the Times or do you think maybe be able? Look at this in a few months? Things improving or maybe we shouldn't have retarded them quite so quickly. Well as we've just said you, you just look how reliable they are. The the they have been evolving crashes in the past, but very rarely for technical reasons or design flaws to the plane and the. Great work is often many than there's. Versions, which is still being used in Kaga, but here Monaco. We've had some great stories. We flew on a seven four seven weeks in Andhra all the way from Tehran to Caracas via Damascus. With with Iran. We went on the emperor's plane.

Venezuela in crisis

"Venezuela is a country in freefall as economic mismanagement an international sanctions. Combine to create desperately difficult times for its citizens as global debate centers, on who's to blame successive, socialist governments or countries like the US, who are putting the squeeze on the government of nNcholas Maduro, people are struggling for basics like food and medicine. US correspondent Zoe Daniel has recently returned from Venezuela as gentlest Venezuela is not an easy country to work in media vases, difficult to get and even with them in hand report is closely monitored by the authorities and government backed armed groups called collective owes rooms need to be checked for bugs sensitive interviews must be discussed in hushed tons movements should not be telegraphed and should never happen after dark time spent in each location needs to be limited violent crime is also close to the w-. I in the world and much of the story that needs to be told is in the slums, or barrios, where poverty hunger and disparition exacerbates that risk. There are also the gangs who trade in drugs, and ruled the roost in recent months, escalating political tensions have added the risk of protest rallies, turning violent clashes between opposition activists and government troops and proxies, all of this means that the stories of ordinary Venezuelans are infrequently told but when you give them the chance this sentiments a clear. Something by women and men young and old have to realize the critical situation, the country, is going through these days, hunger, misery, repression and unemployment. We spent a week in the slums of Caracas and surrounds talking to people about life and politics. Well, I. Research says that nine out of ten people in Venezuela, count afford enough food, because of hyperinflation, which is rented the local currency almost valueless government food parcels that handed out monthly a dwindling. Sometimes now, they come only every second or third month, and they're often missing case applies like milk. There's widespread frustration and people are starting to voice it. Even with the risk of recriminations, Ropeway sediment Settimio, nothing seems to improve it all gets worse. So I think they should be change to give the opportunity for someone else to rule the situation has created a window of opportunity for opposition later. One guy who was backed by the US, and ustralia among dozens of other countries when he declared himself president after twenty eighteen elections that are widely condemned as flawed, although you get the sense that it's a case of right place. Right. Time rather than one guy DOE, having specifically captured the public imagination ROY Innis weather. It's not just a problem for Venezuela, what the international community has done so far is very important. The recognition of our constitution and of me as interim president Australia did that to what's important. Now is to keep the pressure up the dictatorship won't voluntarily leave. And fortunately them enduro government wouldn't respond to the concerns raised by those who can't get enough food or medicine at a time when political division globally runs deep Venezuela's, plied attracts, at a response almost all of the Venezuelans that I've encountered blame the economic collapse, on mismanagement by successive governments who've nationalized, assets, subsidized goods and services failed to manage the country's oil revenues and allowed endemic, cronyism and corruption. They don't always mention soc. Realism specifically many still harked back formerly to the days of logistics, under, former president Hugo Chavez. But for many observers Venezuela's become a symbol of the broader failure of the socialist model, that's gained particular traction as lift and right retreat to their corners, the world over. However, defenders of socialism, attack outside nations for interfering in Venezuela, particularly the United States, which is imposed harsh sanctions and an embargo on oil Russia, China and Cuba continue to back the Madero administration. And that's a K driver of US involvement. The big picture issues, but for ordinary Venezuelans who've seen they country go from the richest in Latin America to a basket case they just want something to change, so they can feed their families, but from Caracas that's North American correspondent, Zoe Daniel.

"On the streets of Caracas. This man, saying they're defending liberty down with tyranny the battle cry of the opposition it all began with this three minute video. Why do calling on the rest of the armed forces to break ranks and joined the opposition. And woman his out. Why does say now is the moment the taking to the streets. But as well as bud thousands out there supporting him cheering those soldiers who defected Madero outraged calling it a coup and demanding his security forces squash, any uprising Madora still very much in control that country. But we saw clashes very very violent clashes that we haven't seen in months. One instance in particular was when an armored vehicle was facing off against demonstrators who had rocks and sticks and molotov cocktails, and they were trying to disperse the demonstrators. The demonstrators are throwing molotov cocktails trying to trying to set these these vehicles on fire and at one point a driver of one of these vehicles. Just hits the gas and advances in moves forward and ends up running over some of these demonstrators people were run over there. Protesters were injured and then after that there was exchanges of gunfire. People were just it seemed they were firing into the air firing in the direction of of whatever the opposition force was and we see one why take to the streets and walk through the streets with other members of the opposition party in and also with just regular Venezuelans. And these are these are regular Venezuelans here that are protesting. We've also seen every major member of President Trump's administration, including the president himself say that they're supporting one zero they're supporting the opposition movement and national security adviser John Bolton also with some strong words Madero still has control of his military. It's unclear what what oh can do if anything different factions of the military. So you have your your traditional army, and they are backing Maduro for several reasons, but one that they they get a piece of the action if you will the military's. Involved in in every business deal in the in the selling of boil in most transactions like in many totalitarian countries the military gets a piece of that action. So it has been official to them from financial standpoint to stand with Madero. And then there's there's what they call the clinic T-Bills, essentially like the citizen army of Madero regular people low income people that have been armed by by the government to make sure they backup Madero in situations. Like, this you have the national guard as well. And then you also have a militias that are that are the elderly. There's sort of the older statesman of the socialist party, but still support Medeiros well, and they had uniforms, the collectibles don't have uniforms, essentially, you know, civilians that are armed that. That actually do a lot of the killings when we talk about the five hundred or so opposition members that have been killed since Medeiros taken power. A lot of those killings and kidnappings are done by members of the collective oh. That is ABC senior national correspondent, Tom yomas..

She's twenty seven and she works for Fundacion mahood Venezuela, which is an internationally funded think-tank, that's affiliated with the Venezuelan opposition party that would be positioned to President Nicolas Maduro. He's been the country's president since two thousand thirteen and under his presidency. The country's economy has the Szekely fallen apart yesterday. We talked to Gabriella about the economic data in Venezuela. But also Gabriella is not just looking at numbers on a page. She lives in Gattaca. She grew up there. The country's economy is collapsing all around or and it's something that she sees every single day. She sees it in the closed up storefronts the shrinking number of people on the streets. And how skinny everyone is getting. And we wanted to get that experience from Gabriele to this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia today on the show day in the life of an economist in. Doc.

A new podcast from Lincoln's aditorial team about the changing nature of work and how to get the most from Monday and your career fine. Hello Monday on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. Gabriella Saadi says she's incredibly lucky she loves her work and her job pays her in US dollars three hundred dollars a month that actually she says a decent wage in Venezuela in spite of her relative privilege living in Caracas is not easy the city and country are crumbling around her and her family, and she sees this every day as soon as she gets up. One of the first things I do is attack. If I have. You know, running water used to see I can. Yeah. To see five we'll be able to take her shower or not Gabriela says, she has water about half the time, but shower or no shower Gabriella has to go to work, but she doesn't take her car not anymore. I need this piece to get aches. And we cannot find it and you were in Venezuela. So I have to take Pollock transportation. But sees I bring my laptop with me to work. I cannot do that. Because I could get robbed. This is Scott us. Okay. One of the most dangerous cities in the world. These days Gabriella takes taxi to work, of course, the taxes can't get parts either. So Gabriel says the ride can be pretty hair-raising once Gabrielle is in her office. She analyzes data with the team of communists, and researchers and tries to come up with economic solutions for Venezuela. She says it's basically black office anywhere, desks. Computers. Water cooler talk power outages that lasts for hours. We are. So used to having them we even have an alum here in the office. Never we got a blackout. So we can you know, plug out everything. So our repayment of one get damage OSA? There's not like a power surge or something exactly around the middle of the day. Gabriel says she tries to go to the grocery store to shop for her family. But before she can do that she has to get Venezuelan boulevards Gabriella and her colleagues get paid in dollars. Gabriel says she's very grateful for that. But a lot of times by Staples. Or really anything you? You need boulevards. Of course, the Bulevar is having a terrible time. Hyperinflation has gripped the country. It is now running at ten million percent. That's what inflation is right now in Venezuela. Ten million percent in order to deal with all this Gabriel and all of our colleagues the system she converts a little bit of US dollars, two boulevard every day through a currency trader ten dollars a day or twenty dollars a day, depending on my expenses. So I will talk to that trader and that person would get me a buyer, and then I will sell sell them dollars is on the phone like a. Yeah. Over what's up over? What has a guy? The guy converts Gabrielle is ten or twenty US dollars into boulevard and transfers at tiny amount into her Venezuelan Bank account the rest of the money. She keeps in a Bank account in the US, or it's protected from the inflation, and even the ten or twenty bucks that the guy transfers into Gabriel's Venezuelan Bank account is not immune to. Inflation. I cannot postpone my shopping. I have to do it right away. Because what happens if you postpone? The prices will rise. If Gabriela waits too long to do her shopping. She says her money could lose enough value that she would not have enough to get what she needs in. It's on her way to the supermarket that Gabriella sees just how much things have changed in her country. The worst Florida is whenever I have to go to the supermarket to buy something because on my way to the supermarket. I see all these families trying to look food on the trash families even with with like, I don't know five kits. They don't ask you for money. The ask you for food. So I will carry that with me to give them like some. So mean. Yeah. And I have never seen like it'll class feeble looking for food on the trash. But now you do because for example, a teacher that used to be in the middle class. Now is now in poverty to real says that when she gets to the grocery store, it is always packed with a huge line snaking around the corner because the cash is worthless. Everyone has to pay by debit card, and because the internet and the power spotty getting a payment through configure really long time sometimes to store will disclose its doors because it can't take any payments and says Gabriella the grocery store has become this kind of grab bag the shelves are often empty and the items are random things have in grocery list is pointless. You know, whenever you see a good that you haven't seen in monce. Even if you don't need it. You just get crazy. And you buy it like, for example up today some meal, and I hadn't seen it for a while. So I got like six liters of male. And I didn't even need that. But that's like the effect of the hyper inflation and everything what were the prices like. Oh. Indeed dollars. It would be more than one dollar the litter. Most people in Venezuela. Make the equivalent of around six dollars a month that milk would be incredibly expensive out of reach for them. Part of this is because of hyper inflation and part of it is because Venezuela's economy has collapsed and still have all of its institutions like the farms, so a country full of starving. People is not really making that much of its own food. It is importing that food. And it's not just food any kind of necessity can be hard to get when Gabriel is ninety five year old grandfather got sick. She ran into the same problem. He was in the hospital three months ago. And we couldn't find a medicine that he needed it. We had to go to like ten places. But then I walked the medicine with people that that had it, and I gave that person the medicine that they need it. Oh, you traded. You like bartered exactly afterward Gubbio says she likes to go for. A run outside. There is so park in Caracas for most runners go it's safe. There are military there and everything Gabriel says there are some rich military government types who liked this park so protected otherwise she says the city's gotten so dangerous, especially for a woman alone. When she gets home says the first thing she does is check her computer and especially Twitter for news. Most of the TV and radio stations are owned by the government. So it's all about fake news for them will leave in the best country in the world, the classic manual cater. So we have three ter-, and we say informed there. It's through Twitter and through texting Gabriela realized that the blackouts were happening across the whole country and not just in the city of dacas. It's Twitter that warns her when more blackouts are coming or reports that eighty newborn babies died in the hospital during the last blackout when news broke yesterday that opposition leader. One guy does car had been attacked in Caracas. Gabriela sent me a photo of hundreds of cars pulled over to the side of the highway full of people desperately trying to get reception on their phones to get some kind of news update. It turned out. He was fine. Of course, Gabriela is an exceptionally lucky person in Venezuela. Her father is a US citizen, and she has some money saved up in a Bank account in the US because you could leave if you wanted. Yeah. I could I could do you stay like, well, I don't know maybe this will sound very millennial. But I feel like I have a purpose here. I know that I can make a difference.
