the outgoing government has undermined the independence of its judiciary and media as well as making opponent less welcoming to ethnic minorities on the l g b t community. i want to talk more about this now i'm joined in this to hear by wojciech szymanski from our polish said it's good to see voice hello hello anything surprising to you in these projected results well what's surprising for me is that this election night is so exciting to be honest because in this moment we don't really know if the ruling law and justice party will be able to form a government alone because we only have exit polls and shall there be any change even a $41.00 or 100 percent it could mean that the did the party of heroes of kaczynski would have to look for a coalition partner but anyway of course it is a huge success and a victory of law and justice party important so
10:03 pm
a victory for them what makes this policy so successful well just as party has a very coherent program that i would call poland 1st simply. and also polish economy runs really well the unemployment is very very low. besides a loan just as part of the easing party which fulfills its promises which is not really a rule in poland and a very important issue it's a party which for the 1st time after 989 set enough saving it's time to spend money it's a party which started giving money to do people in boulder and what about the opposition then that the voter turnout appeared what explains that well outside the opposition doesn't really have a good leader is some popular politician to pull the entire position. i would also say there is no such a clear and as i said coherent program there on the side of the of the open.
10:04 pm
mission you know it's not easy to fight against the party i mean to fight against low and just this party which is striking below the belt because it's a party having total control over the public media for example in poland and this media is attacking the opposition aggressively and constantly from that right now of course once we get those results will then take a look at how the government shapes up do you think it will be easy to form a government. it's hard to say because one option would be a very far right very radical can for the rights party which is quite new in our polish parliament otherwise the possibility is the rule as party which could have some. influence i believe on a low and justice party it's hard to say how these talks will look like more interesting prospects to come tracking it for us. this thank you very much.

european leaders saying turkey easing into listen to what he says is this call to end the fight against terrorism they say this is very much about the future of the country nothing will dissuade turkey from continuing its operations and in fact turkey does appear to be ramping up its operations given the fast moving developments happening in syria now that turkey very much see this as a key moment this is not a moment now to step back but rather to operations up further there's even speculation turkey could extend its operations far beyond the original objective of the 30 kilometer safe so turkey really sees this as a critical moment for the whole region this is a moment the turkey has to address all its concerns is here this is a chance to do that of wise it will be lost in the future and given the fact that the european leaders are ending arms embargoes that means very little to turkey given turkey has a very sophisticated developed defense industry such for its fee little to attack you and on the other side door and we are now hearing that syrian government troops are moving north to confront takesh offensive what more do you know about that.
