EVO 2020 was cancelled

"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?

Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?

"Pakistan was founded in nineteen forty seven. It has not proved an easy country to lead indeed indeed. It's something of a Wanda anyone tries. In those seven. Short decades of its existence Pakistan has seen two presidents or the equivalent overthrown in coups. WHO's to forced into resignation to quitting to avoid impeachment one hanged one killed in an arguably suspicious plane crash one chased into exile one one dying from illness in office of Pakistan's prime ministers four have being sacked three unloaded by their own parties. One chased into exile one on assassinated one chased into exile and then assassinated upon their return and these are an incomplete assessment of the hazards attendant upon high office in Pakistan. We've only got about five minutes and at any rate to say. Nothing of uncountable. Attempted assassinations failed. Coups d'etat and sundry abortive altuve plots any occupant of Pakistan's presidential palace or prime ministerial residence nose to sleep with one eye open and a pistol beneath a pillow pillow so it is possible that Pervez Musharraf who was president of Pakistan between two thousand and one and two thousand eight has responded philosophically to the death sentence passed upon him this week by a court in Islamabad which convicted him of high treason. Musharraf cannot claim that he didn't know what he was getting himself into to inaction at. This moment is suicide for Pakistan and I cannot allow this country to commit suicide. I had to take this action in order to preserve the democratic transition then rick I initiated Massara also enjoys the constellation that the sentence is unlikely ever to be enacted he received news of the verdict in Dubai. Are you where he has lived since two thousand sixteen having prudently contracted around then a mysterious ailment. That could not possibly have been treated. In any of Pakistan's many perfectly serviceable hospitals certain reprehensible cynics have further suggested that the United Arab Emirates lack of an extradition treaty with Pakistan may have been as much a factor in sheriff's choice of destination as the healthcare in assessing the reasons for what has befallen Musharraf. It is worth recapping how he gained power in Pakistan and how he lost it. Musharraf was a career army officer and by one thousand nine hundred nine join held the rank of general and the title of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Pakistan's senior most military role that year tensions between Musharaff Graf and then Prime Minister Sharif climaxed in a coup d'etat in which Musharaff seized power. I would like to please do not expect your level of democracy which you learned over a number of centuries all trying to learn and we are doing well the last time Musharraf held office surviving at least a two assassination attempts until two thousand eight when he resigned amid chaos and turbulence encroaching from a number of fronts. He left for London and returned to Pakistan in two thousand thirteen hoping to campaign for office again but found himself under house arrest. Prominent among a lengthy list of accusations against him was involvement in the assassination of former prime minister and former Philo exile Benazir Bhutto. who was murdered shortly after her return to Pakistan in two thousand and seven tourist allies and we are prepared to risk the liberty but we are not prepared to surrender our great nation the militants? This is not what Musharraf has been convicted of however however the high treason charge relates to his unsuccessful last-ditch attempt to prolong his presidency in two thousand and seven. He declared a state of emergency see and suspended. The constitution pulled the plugs on TV. Channels sacked the chief justice of the Supreme Court and had several opposition figures placed under house. Arrest I including current Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan Musharraf may be reflecting that some of his former foes have long memories but so Doodoo who do some of his former comrades Pakistan's military has always taken a flexible view of the convention of submission to Civilian Command and one of the more more brow arching responses to the death sentence against Musharraf has come from the Pakistani military's media department which said that the sentence had been received and with a lot of pain and anguish by the rank and file of Pakistan's armed forces. It also suggested in an unmistakable tone of airy menace that June legal. Google process seems to have been ignored and that an officer of Musharraf's statue could surely never be a traitor. Nice little independent judiciary dish area. You have here wouldn't want anything to happen to. If one sets aside any squeamishness about capital punishment with the conviction of Michelle off is arguably a step forward for Pakistan's always fraught and fragile constitutional democracy a robust assertion of the rule of law against a rogue officer who took power by force and tried to keep it by the same means however nobody in Pakistan needs reminding of the tendency of Pakistan's military to assert itself right back Woah never done in China because children deal outside Pete as we go to Air Musharaff's legal team claimed their client intends to challenge the guilty verdict and the death sentence in Pakistan's Supreme Court. It would be better for his country and himself if he did so from a distance

The Latest on the Kashmir status

"We looked the heating tensions between two major u._s. Allies a nuclear armed nations india and pakistan. It all kicked off on monday. When the indian prime minister narendra modi announced that he was removing kashmir's special status from the indian constitution putting its autonomy in peril in an address to the nation today the indian prime minister doubled down saying that his actions would free cash of terrorism in a nutshell kashmir is a contentious piece of land split split mostly between india and pakistan and they have fought three wars over it already. The pakistani government is responding so far by suspending trade with its neighbor the and downgrading diplomatic relations as this tense standoff develops we have asked for indian officials to join us but they've so far declined and i'm joined now by pakistan's ambassador the to the united nations me lodhi ambassador. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. How serious is this in the view of your government. I don't just mean politically for your government but regionally and what might do given the tension between your ought to nations christian. Let's i get the facts straight. How was this crisis triggered. It was triggered by illegal eagle annexation by the indian government off the state of jammu in kashmir which is an internationally recognized dispute in fact where i sit at the united the nation's it is a dispute that is functionally on the u._n. Security council agenda because there are a series of u._n. Security council resolutions that have of course on india to allow the people of jammu in kashmir to freely determine their destiny through a so the crisis is triggered by an illegal an illegitimate action by india and let's just get the rest of the facts straight. The facts are that there is a blanket curfew in occupy genuine cushman people. There are locked up. It's called a lock down which has entered its fourth david. Actually this has been a prolonged lockdown. These people have been deprived tribe of the liberty for seventy years or more now. They're going to be deprived of their identity because the action by the indian government what does it actually do. Ooh what it does is to also allow the indian government to bring about demographic changes in dublin kushner and therefore to really really threaten the identity of the kashmiri people as far as my government is concerned and my prime minister and my country's concern. We reject this move. We heard what prime hi mr moody said just a few hours ago and it was a dishonest deceitful and disingenuous justification of their action which has no basis in law and it's certainly flouts in flagrant violation. Security council has been ambassador. Let me ask you this. Let me ask because those are very very tough words. You're using you are the u._n. Ambassador you've just reminded us all how this is enshrined in international law given the dispute you should be resolved according to the international community so what is the united nations and the security council going to do about this so they taking it up well. I have been in meetings with top officials and i have reminded them of their responsibility. Pakistan has going to go to the security council. It is going to remind mind the security council and its members indeed all of the united nations of its responsibility and what is that responsibility that responsibility is to ensure and let me say to christiane for your viewers and important resolution. It's called resolution thirty eight of the security council and the paragraph two of that resolution says a country does not have the right to materially change the situation in cushman and that's precisely what the indian government it has done so my country wants a peaceful settlement of this issue. We've always called for a negotiated settlement which is an accordance with security council resolutions russians and in accordance with the wishes of the schmead people. Let's not forget the issue is about people it's about the people who have been deprived of their right to live the way they want to be governed the way they want to end today even pro indian politicians in in kashmir have been locked up so if prime minister narendra modi's says that this is in the interests of the jungle in kashmir people the question he has to answer is why do you have to lock up the entire state of genuine kashmir why because no cash media will accept what the indian government has done a we we we. We don't accept what the indian government has done. We checked it and we'll go to the council and we'll make all these points at the council and we will insist that the council implement its own resolutions because i think the choice right now is do we want to live in a rules-based world where international law supreme or do we want to live in a world which is ruled by the law of the jungle and this is what india has done it his floated international law and it has flouted security council resolutions. You mentioned lockdown and lock up. We've heard reports that opposition politicians in in jammu kashmir have been arrested and as you say landlines are down. The internet is down. Mobile phone is down very very difficult to get an idea of exactly what's happening on the ground there but i do want to ask you because the whole world knows that this piece of disputed land has been the cause of three wars between between your nations and today your army chief the the pakistani army chief said that the country would do all that's necessary go to any extent to support cash mary's and then the foreign minister said the pakistan is not looking to respond militarily so can i hear it from you. Do you think that there's is going to be a military solution to this or do you still have diplomatic intentions. No i mean we have said very clearly that all diplomatic diplomats and political options are on the table pakistan has no interest and no desire to escalate the situation. This is an escalation that was triggered by by an illegal and illegitimate act and we would like the international community now to stand up for principle for law for justice and to address the plight eight of the kashmiri people as i keep saying christiane. This is about people in that state in an occupied state an occupation that has been brutal india has moved additional troops into occupied jammu and kashmir why obviously to suppress the voice of the kashmiri people but one day the curfew will have have to end one day these restrictions will have to go and then the indian government will hear the voice of the kashmiri people and that voice will be to get get out of kashmir to leave kashmir and to reverse this illegal annexation but that's also gives rise to all sorts of worries because if they do protests as most people believe they will and some have suggested they will if and when this curfew is is is raised that also could trigger a response so let me ask you because obviously president trump has met president prime minister modi of india several times and he also just hosted prime minister imran khan oh prime minister at the white house and when they were talking president trump said that prime minister mody had mentioned. Maybe he into mediating in this. Let me just play what president trump said. I was with prime minister modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually flea said. Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator. I said

"Imran Khan says the best is yet to come for the social media company. But it is time for him to start a new story. Plus, Tim cook warns the President Trump's proposed tariffs on China will push up the price of some of Apple's most popular products. The president tweets back details. And it is the start of a new era at Alibaba. Jack Ma announces his succession plan as he turns his focus to philanthropy and education. But first toward top stories snap is losing its chief strategy officer Forty-one-year-old Imran Khan is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. Sources tell Bloomberg he's set to start his own tech investment company in a memo to staff he said, I'm really proud of what we've achieved as a team in less than four years we revenue from nearly zero to over a billion dollars on an annualized run rate along the road. We also hired more than three thousand people and expanded our operations to over thirteen countries around the world, but we're tax Barranca has been following the story joins us now from New York. So Alex has very much been the adult supervision at snap and he's lasted longer than other executives. But he's also the latest in a long line of executives that have exited. What does this mean? So that's exactly right. He is the latest and also the highest up on the food chain. He's basically known as a CEO Evan Spiegel's. Number two. Evan focused on product Imron was the business mind here. So. Right now, if I'm an investor I'm thinking about what this means for snaps business going forward the past year has been a really tumultuous one for this company. They've been trying to figure out its business model they've redesigned the app and then brought back that redesign. And as if you remember in August most recently showed a decline in daily after users the very first decline in that, very important important metrics. So what I think this means for snap. Is you need somebody there who can kind of take the reins of a business mind over at Snape amongst this turnover in the top ranks of the social media company. So what's the plan to replace him? Who could be in the running? So they did bring in somebody to report to him from Time Warner she's overseeing kind of she's had a business development. She's overseeing sales basically explaining the company's vision for advertisers to those potential clients. But I think this might actually open up a little bit of an opportunity to bring somebody in who can kind of have a blank slate to do that Evan Spiegel told my colleague Sara Frier last last month and in business week that basically he's looking to revamp his management style change his management style from Evan. I to a more more of a democracy, perhaps. So this would give the opportunity for snap to bring somebody in who can kind of break down the walls of secrecy that have been so rampant among the company and also kind of bringing a business mind who can take up take up or Imron left off. Well, we can assume that that's probably easier said than done this, of course as. Snap is battling Facebook and Instagram. And as it's getting even dragged into these these these social media issues around content. That's looked up online. We saw snap stock. Go down last week on the back of these hearings. Even though snap wasn't even involved. So talk about the challenges in headwinds ahead for this company. That's right. And you can see the messaging changed snap is trying really hard to distance himself from the likes of Facebook from the likes of Twitter say look by the heart of our app. The fact that your pictures disappear. They're not up there forever. You're not necessarily being bombarded with content from a bunch of different people. It's only who you choose that is kind of the line that they have been walking. But as you said investors have kind of missed that differentiation. I think it'd be really important for them going forward to continue kind of asserting that line. But also getting investors more comfortable with the business model. Last earnings was the first time that they gave revenue guidance for the first time sense. Even before they went public back in March two thousand seventeen. So now that they're putting some signpost out there and giving some additional financial expectations. I think that is a good sign for investors who basically been asked since the beginning to just trust management that they'll figure all of this out. So in terms of boosting revenue continuing to get used to be back on the platform. Not seeing any more daily active user growth and bringing in again, folks, who can sit at the top of this management team and help Evan Spiegel on the business side. Those are the three things that I think investors will be paying most attention to going forward. All right Imran Khan out as snaps number two. Very influential the company over the last several years. Alex Barranca for us in New York. Alex, thanks so much for weighing in now to another top story. Apples trade troubles. President. Trump says he's ready to impose tariffs on an additional two hundred sixty seven billion dollars worth of China imports. That has companies like apple worried last week. The tech giant wrote to the US trade Representative saying are concerned with these tariffs is that the United States will be hardest hit and that will result in lower US growth and competitiveness and higher prices for US consumers, President Trump responded over the weekend tweeting apple prices may increase because of the massive tariffs. We may be imposing on China. But there's an easy solution where there would be zero tax and indeed a tax incentive make your products in the United States. Instead of China's start building new plants now exciting hashtag make America. Great again. This all comes as apple is set to unveil its latest iphones Wednesday for more. We are joined by Mark Gherman. Bloomberg tech who covers all things apple so Mark, we can imagine. This is not something apple wants to deal with two days before its biggest announcement of the year. How do you think this will impact what we'll see on Wednesday? I don't think it will. Right. I don't think this is something they're going to mention I don't think this is something that's going to be talked about next week by them. I'm sure the press will be talking about it. And people watching the event we'll be curious about it. But I don't think they're going to come out and say, hey, the apple watch is a little bit more expensive this year because of this this and that I think these tariffs are still sort of in the early stages. These proposed we see hundreds of companies commenting on the tariff. So maybe there'll be some wiggle room for that to change. I saw an analysts note this morning indicating that the overall revenue prospects for this tariffs impact would be about one to two percent across twenty nineteen. So not a very significant headwind for the company, here's a little bit more of what apple told the US trade Representative in this letter saying it is difficult to see how terrorists that Kurt US companies in US consumers would advance the government's objectives with respect to China's tech policies. We hope instead you will reconsider these measures and work to find other more effective solutions that leave the US economy and US consumer stronger and healthier than ever before. Now, if apple prices were to increase as a result of these tariffs, Mark where could we expect to see? See those price increases on what products. So three main categories wants the air pause, which is unfortunate because that's a growing popular product for them. This is one product that is not as margin as there are other devices because it is a new category for them, and they are much harder to produce the other another fast growing category, the alpha watch, and they're saying the apple watch particular would be hit hard by this and price increases could be possible on that device of the third thing is basically some array of accessories right the album, pencil stylists and a lot of people use to draw a right on the ipad. There's also some versions of the MAC mini. Also, some of those goals in chargers that everyone carries with them. Now in the other cases that apple sells for the apple pencil MAC book, the iphone and the ipad. So nothing extraordinary. Stop the iphone and ipad itself. It's not it's MAC, laptops. But it's some of their fastest growing products. Well, of course, this situation with the the trade dispute. Trade tariffs is evolving. So we'll continue to. To follow that. Now, you've broken a lot of the news that were expecting to come out of the conference on Wednesday. What else are you looking for could there be any surprises? In addition to the three iphones. You believe will be failed. Yeah. I don't think there will be any surprises. I think the main three things that we're going to see are one of the three new iphones. The iphone ten s and upgrades the iphone ten the iphone ten s max of bigger iphone ten the iphone ten are a cheaper iphone ten you sort of conceived. The theme here. The next thing would be the biggest upgrade to the apple watch since it was announced in twenty fourteen in the third thing would be an update on how both wireless strategy. So what I'm expecting our new version of the air pods. Not a big revamp to the products, but a minor upgrade as well. As an update on the air power, wireless charger. So I think those three things combined we'll make for a pretty good event for investors and consumers alike. How do you imagine what's going on between apple in Washington between China and Washington is impacting the supply chain because as we know in the weeks after this announcement, it is all about getting as many phones as possible to the stores on time and to consumers on time who ordered them online. And there's always this question of of whether. There will be more demand than supply as there often is at the very beginning. Yeah. I mean, that's that's a really good point. Speaking of supply and demand what we're hearings is iphone device might ship a little bit after the new iphone ten s models because of some supply chain problems related to producing the screens and on the topic of the Trump administration, the tariffs if you look at the stock market right now some of alcohol suppliers overseas or being hit by this because they want to know what their long term impact is going to be is really going to shift production to the US if the shift more productions the US some of those foreign suppliers in for some big trouble because they rely on Alpe for so much of their business, and they had for so many years, and they expect you for so many years going forward. Now from a design perspective, the iphone ten has already taken us a step towards the elimination of the home button. But of course, we still have these older models that are being bought and made will this new generation the iphone ten as will this lead to the ultimate ultimate complete elimination of the home button. And how long will that take? So that's a good question. And it's a it's a multi year strategy. So they started with one model last year. Now, you're going to have three models all of the new iphones are going to be home button list touch ID. Let's all face ID screens. No, physical controls in terms of the the home button. Right. But they're still likely going to sell some of the older phone models. Like, the iphone SE, perhaps they'll still sell the iphone eight eight plus the iphone seven maybe some of the iphone six models. So we're going to see is apple stopped selling devices with home buttons. I think that's going to take at least one to three more years before we get to that point. But they're going to have to release more. I phone models. They're going to have to do an even cheaper iphone with that new design. I remember the iphone five or iphone SE, I should say costs between three hundred and four hundred dollars depending on capacity. What country you're buying it in this cheapest iphone the new one that's going to be released on Wednesday at the very least will be seven hundred dollars. So we're talking about it entire market of sub by. Hundred dollar phones that is not being addressed by this design, and they'll eventually have to get there. If they want to remove the home button from all of their products. All right. Bloomberg tax. Mark Gherman, you'll be all over the news Wednesday and throughout the week. As will we will be live from Cupertino on Wednesday as apple holds its latest event in the Steve Jobs theater.

"Imran Khan says that Pakistan's voters have given him a mandate, but the former cricket captains path to the prime ministership still isn't clear as we go to air. They're still counting the votes in yesterday's national election. And while Mr. Khan's party appears to have won the most seats there. Well, short of the outright majority, then there are the accusations of vote rigging and manipulation by the army. Shove Jilani is a freelance journalist reached him in Karachi Mr. Delaney. What is the atmosphere in Pakistan tonight as people wait to find out what this election is going to mean? What is no particular that Brown con and his spotty will have the biggest majority, the parliament it will not be enough for them to form a government on their own. In all likelihood, they will seek coalition partners, but I think it's now pretty clear that he will be the next prime minister and to our people celebrating. Is there anxiety? How is it there. The nation is divided. As you can imagine, Imram Khan has folded is the country. His supporters, obviously Juban, especially young people. Women are middle class people who normally do not take part in politics of Iran Han managed to put it decides them, inspire them over the years, going from Anita. Nobody to seed Asli to now becoming the prime minister, but equally in large parts of the country people are wanted because detained that he's inexperience, it believed that he has been brought to follow by the military and that cannot be good. They don't believe that he will fight for all of entries from the and constitution and Foxton. So there are fears that he might end up strenghtening the military. I am interested in what you're saying about where he's come from, because I covered a previous Pakistani election some years ago, and he I had to interview. Him when he was in hiding because Pervez Musharraf was in charge and wanted him arrested. He's come from that to this. How did that happen? That's true. I mean, round con will see as the real Joyce for the silent majority people who have fed up the traditional politics. Same, not on Wesley. Remember he was a cricket captain in the nineteen ninety s and then he set up a against hospital in his mother's name. So he had you jetty woke to his credit international sports star to his credit and many dabbled in politics. People laughed send you all politics as an dining, different ballgame. He's not gonna make it. And for many struggle in thirteen and actions, he did contest. He got a number of boards in the northwestern province, cli- formed a gunman dead, but he did not get enough Balkan aboard, win seats in the parliament. And in the last five years, we saw him John psalm in do one of those politicians who will got deals will make compromises who would go to any lengths go to cover this. Ya. He must help an edgy by. The army. So a lot of people who are Novosti ditched him. Now us reaping. Yes, and many of his argumentation dish. Nobody that's been Imron Han became much more potent force. What evidence is there that Mr. Khan was supported by the military CDs of events over the last one year, many of these people who left their parent party didn't offer strong convincing case vied. They were bitching a gunman. They've been bought of all VANOVER four and a half years. And these people have a reputation of switching loyalties when they feel somebody else will be brought in. So there's plenty of circumstantial evidence I can tell you I was covering this campaign. I've into Balochistan province near the reunion gone Boorda. I traveled job and it was. It was really stunning of stoking do candidates and politicians who are not supporting him. Non con. There was embedded -ly mentioned of the local ISI officialize. I being the Pakistani. Agency. So it seems to me that the diligence agencies have played some role somewhere in elections, and it reinforced the perception that way was being faithful. Ron Han become too now, we know the military has has long, had a role in ruling Pakistan, either ruling itself for having influence on the politics. If Imran Khan needed the military support to win. What might that mean for the kind of prime minister? He'll be..

"This is what is kept nausea, Reeves party, in particular, in power, input job. It's the power of patronage. It's clans, clientele. Basically, they've got enough money. They can keep these networks beholden to that party. And Imran Khan is found it very difficult to penetrate three that this time, one of the reasons he's been able to a, he's been more willing to do these localize is and people have been more willing to do them with him as well as he's looked more likely to win be. He seems to have had these his opponents claim. He's had the backing the army and see his anti corruption narrative is cutting through a lot more not least because no Sharieff the former prime minister is in jail on corruption charges that Imran come in. Brought to the supreme cooled and victim and give us a sense of what this election means for the wide region and the wider world. I suppose there was outside Asia, lots more concentration on Pakistan on its gyp little significance at the height of the Afghan war. One. It really played critical role in in the often of of nine eleven. Now, I think that you know in the think tanks in the US they probably think about it a a little less. But Pakistan does seem to be if you like in play between the United States and China doesn't it? It's place kind of bigamous role. That's right. I mean, I think there's a danger for western policymakers if they think that because they recognize him Rincon is a cricketer former playboy. That means it's going to be sympathetic to western values. He's actually shown exactly the opposite. I'm not lifestyle, which does remain fairly western, I think in reality, but through his policies, he's probably gonna have Islamist allies. He's been very critical of the US war on the ways being conducted in Afghanistan. He he's kind of come down and I think in favor of the blasphemy law in in Pakistan, which is which is controversial. But I think for western Democrats, if you like, I think he's gonna come up against very similar issues in foreign policy that his predecessors have come up against. He shows no sign of wanting to end this rather ludicrous enmity with neighboring India, which Nova Sharieff actually to his credit did try to soften a little bit the border between India and Pakistan in Punjab news. I'm trying to the horse should really be the world's busiest border, but it's actually one of the qualities if you go across, there's almost no traffic going across, and then he's also going to have to deal with the issue of China. You know, China is investing tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure projects in Pakistan and any government including Imran. Khan's is going to have to deal with that and they're sort of contrivances in Pakistan about that in terms of whether the debts can be repaid some of these politicians on those kind of issues. And and as you say, there is a kind of geopolitical power play between the United States and China and India is there on the sidelines, let's assume for the moment that he does take power reasonably smoothly. Do you have any sense yet of water name run? Uncon- government's going to be like. Like I mean, does he have any administrative experienced as he have experienced people around him and doing the, he'll make a false start? Or do you think it's like to be a while as he feels his way? Yeah, took a question. His posse the PTI has been in power in the states of Khyber Peckham Kwa for the last few years, how well they've done. There is fiercely disputed, but it is not paxton's biggest or most popular state, so that and his record of administration is is pretty thin. I spoke to him last week and Tim, a couple of detail policy questions, some of which he was best role in the detail than others. So I did osc him. For example, victim mentioned the impending economic crisis. I asked him whether he was willing to go to the f. or whether he wanted to go to China to get more loans from Beijing to do with that. And he simply said that the parties undertake your review and he wasn't able to or any questions on it. So I think he's gonna have a lot of getting up to speed to do very quickly. And you ask whether he'll make a fuss. Awesome. He'll quite simply have to because this financial crisis, I think he's gonna hit him within months if not weeks of taking charge..

"Getting Rachman today. We're looking at Pakistan, whether I just held elections and it seems as if Imran Khan, the former cricketer and political outsider is the victim. So what happens now, joining me on the line is our correspondent, Karen, Stacy who covered the elections and also on the line is our Asia News editor victim mullet Karen, I we're talking about twenty four hours after the polls closed has Imran's party clearly one. Yeah, we've now got enough ice to be pretty sure that Iran Connie is going to be the next prime minister of Pakistan. We've had final declarations from around that he constituencies, but we've had about fifty percents of the vote from the rest and what is becoming players that has one. He's one of the most people thought he's one probably over one hundred seats maybe over one hundred ten which puts him within touching distance for majority as the day goes on might be that results come even more in his. Favor, and he gets that majority which would be far better than anyone was expecting an even if he falls just short. It shouldn't be too difficult for him to do a couple of alliances with smaller parties and get himself installed as prime minister in the coming days. How big a political changes this podcastone you've covered many Pakistan e elections over the enormous dominated by two parties associated with the family and no us Reese family. And here we have a new. He's broken the mold and not sense in and that he was very sort of distant third, and now he's come can call you won this election. I think the question really is whether he's getting to be a mold breaker or a big change in terms of what he actually does when he's in power. And I think there it's a little bit more dubious. You know, he's a Pashtoon, but he's brought up in the hor- privileged family and he's gonna face exactly the same problems that other governments civilian governments have faced in the past very heavy corruption. Of course, he's talked about being anti corruption campaigner, and that's something that may set him apart from his predecessors, but his other economic policies necessarily that different from what other people said they're gonna do get to reform the some of the state-owned enterprises. He's gonna widen the tax, these things urgently needed. He's going to develop tourism, which is setting a very tough loss in a place like Pakistan. But I do think he's going to come up against executive the same problems that his predecessors have come up against. And that is essentially the all me whether or not the army pushed him into. Pau or not. And that's what he's opponent. Suspect. They clearly remain incredibly influential. They see the large amount of the of the budget of the state for themselves, and it just narrows the space in which civilian politicians like him can actually operate in. And I think that is going to be a challenge and we're really looking at quite a severe economic crisis. I mean, there's a very severe foreign exchange crisis that he the next government is going to have to do with really in a matter of weeks. Before we go into some of those crunchy issues that victor's raised about the economy about the army, just give us a sense of Imran's personal journey because I think that the yours, many people in Britain because I guess that heard of him as a famous cricketer assume that he would sweep to power, but actually it's taken literally decades, hasn't it since he returned as a kind of semi playboy celebrity, it has. So he says up his party's, the PTI, which means movement for Justice. He set up in nineteen Ninety-six promising to sweep aside pucks, don's endemic corruption, and it's taken him until now to get anywhere close to power. It looked like he was going to break through in twenty thirteen when he toured the country just before that election and was gathering crowds of up to one hundred thousand people. I think what became clear after that election when he came at distant third, is that a lot of those crowds that just to see the man who led the puck istani cricket team to the well Cup in nineteen Ninety-two and be what has been his consistent problem input. Takes is the puck Astaldi politics is dominated by so-called barrage links. These kind of clan. Family ties, which mean that happens is that for local politicians will do deals with heads of plans to make sure that everybody within that network invites the same way..
