party forming a minority government will have to rely on their support and with notes. party likely to achieve an overall majority that's a potential political nightmare for sweden's establishment but even if white spread an ease about migration doesn't bring the sweden democrats to paris it could mean the country's century old political consensus is over. chorus one of bob a vessel is at a polling station in stockholm good to see you barbara another anti immigrant populist party on the rise how strong can we expect them to emerge on this election day in sweden. we don't really know helen now because the polls have been veering all over the place during the last days a week ago or two weeks ago some polls so saw them at twenty five percent even in first place in the readership political landscape but then it seems to have gone down again now they are being polled with around twenty percent which would put

them in second place in this parliament but we have to wait how strong their support really is when people go to the polls behind us we see a polling station in the center in the old town of stockholm and what you see here are representative of all the big parties only the social democrats are in here and even a sweden democrats are up to is also here and they're still shoving of leaflets into people tens and trying to change their minds at the very last moment so we have to wait and see the prognosis are simply not really for him and we can't really dare to make prophecies at this point but for how rightwing are the sweden democrats what more can you tell us about them. it is a problem that lies in their past because they have come from an eel now the party of for real fringe extreme right wing fringe party that used to exist in sweden already in the eighty's but this was all of

a sort of like an oddball little fringe thing and then when jimmy aka's who is now leader of this party the sweden democrats when he came he tried to do what marine le pen tried to do in france he tried to sort of end deportees and his party to to sort of demonize that he says no no we are not an extreme radical right wing party we're not racists even though they are pretty moons thematic i mean they talk about nothing but migrants they talk about crime and it was really a tremendous amount of fear mongering that they've sort of using in trying to impress we dish voters and giving them a feeling of in secure. in their own country which as we know from other countries from great britain from france from germany even is what really sort of fires the populist vote and that's what's behind them so whether jimmy officer will really be successful was demonizing the party and. sort of painting them as just another

party even though a conservative one we will have to see briefly if you wouldn't mind barbara sweden i mean always had a fairly open refugee policy why is it such an issue now. it has become an issue to talk to two thousand and fifteen when around one hundred fifty thousand drift came in very quick succession at the height of the big crisis and when the people had the feeling that the government had control over who comes and how many people come and how then they are integrated into society it's a very similar phenomenon that you see in germany and some other european countries and then of course its past mistakes in. the refugee policy in sweden here that has led to this moment that politics in sweden find themselves now in there really being torn apart and probably shaken all over the place w. correspondent barbara starr thank you. now some of the other stories making

hope to hear me fall off the garbage into the next two years. well north korea is celebrating its the seventieth birthday a month long program of events kicked off with a cold set followed by a huge parade all the communist state showed off some of its latest military hardware and best trained units there was no sign of advanced long range missiles the basis was on civilian efforts to build the economy the top priority for the decade joe for today's parade comes at a sensitive time kim's relations with u.s. president donald trump have to tear a today since their summit in june. and for more now i'm joined in the studio by about how to botch an expert on china or north korea from the bet has been foundation good to have you with us mr boche now good morning some experts say that you know the focus on this year's parade was the economy and not on military might
11:10 am
as we've seen previously is that how you read it yes you're right and it's interesting in a way that north korea holds a military parade in order to showcase its economic goals but i think the two most significant things that you saw there was that they did not show case their most advanced weapons and the second thing the presence of john show who is the number three in the chinese leadership are a key and that this is a sign that north korea may be heading down a similar way like china going for economic reform is a bit of opening up that's at least the hope that that you see i suppose the question is well not showing the latest military hardware in the in that. way was that a message then to the united states because of course diplomacy appears to have stalled with the united states for now can we expect the progress i think we can expect a lot of activity not a lot of progress though but the u.s.
11:11 am
and north korea have really short of all their diplomatic fireworks at the big summit in june in singapore so the expectations there were extremely high and they cannot be met i think the much more significant diplomatic event that we're looking at now is the meeting with the south korean president what can we expect to come out of those talks i think south korea is really trying hard to bring in north korea to engage them economically just as the chinese are doing and the big question in south korea is are they going to propose a peace treaty at some point i don't think we're going to see this at the summit this month but i think there's a strong political will in south korea to offer more to north korea to just to bring them in from the cold i mean you mention the fact that they're going to try and potentially engage south korea economically is that the sense that north korea at seventy really needs to do that for the for the state of the nation and the situation that the people find themselves in the absolutely does seventy years of

north korea is a celebration for the kim family because they've hung on to power for seventy years there's not that many regimes worldwide that have managed to do that saudi arabia mainly but. for the people it's a horrible situation it's nothing to celebrate seventy years of north korea north korea is in an area where every country around them has really developed and they haven't although they have all the chances and we hope that we'll see some development there that had botched an expert on china north korea from the battles in the foundation thanks for your insights thank you. chan is now at a dramatic final at the u.s. open in new york nine yo soccer has beaten serena williams to claim our first ever grand slam title and a first for a japanese woman or soccer cruised into a first set lead williams took control of the second set but then lost her cool smashing her racket on the court after she was penalized when the chair umpire
