bialik gassed. managed by shrapnel. this is w. news live from berlin celebration in hong kong pro-democracy candidates make massive gains at the probation as the probation both collapses in municipal elections the vote is seen as a referendum on the territories battle government also coming up it's too close to call in the race for the presidency and a lot of what early results from the country's presidential runoff could both candidates from the left and right neck and neck. and stores and head to believe
2:01 am
battled it out in the bundesliga both teams have been a disappointment so far this season could they rediscover their mojo. i'm mommy and use of welcome to the program vote counting is underway in hong kong after municipal elections and already pro-democracy candidates have made massive gains they've secured a majority with nearly $390.00 seeds compared to just 59 seats for the probation camp election is seen as a chance for hong kong has to have a direct say about the city's direction after nearly 6 months of protests. as polls closed and results started to trickle in celebrations erupted among pro-democracy voters on the streets of hong kong activists had urged people to go
2:02 am
to the ballot boxes and the record turnout of her around 70 percent answered the call. on she privately if there are more hong kong is costing their ballots it means a better democracy so if this year's voter turnout is higher than the previous election i think that's quite positive. many voters wanted to make their voices heard following nearly half a year of unrest in hong kong it had left many feeling that enough is enough. people have been long long you know the current. prime cooperate. almost listen to do was it of. the policy to choose district councillors they don't have any direct political power i see it merely offer advice to discover him and as hong kong's district councils have long been dominated by the probe ageing establishment pro-democracy voters believe this time the scales are tipping in
2:03 am
their favor. now for more on that story i'm joined by our reporter hunk sean lee who has been following events there for us so the initial results have come in what you make of them so far all the counting is still on the way but early results have already shown that the pro-democracy camp is leading the poll it has already won more than $380.00 out of $452.00 seats and that's a lot and as for the probation camp they have lost around 240 seats compared to the last election many prominent probating heavyweights have been bombed out of office such as studio hold he's a very controversial figure and has caught a lot of media attention because of his abrasive comments about the protesters so the genius hoe he's been a controversial figure and he recently made headlines in november because it it appeared that he was stabbed at a campaign event now this could have gone both ways it could have obviously looked bad for the pro-democracy camp that because this criticism of them using violence
2:04 am
but he was kicked out of office how did this happen. genius who is very unpopular among protesters you're right he was stabbed in november and the attack was filmed and shared online so logically protesters and the prodemocracy can shoot loose support because of that violence why junius hall and the protests pro-government camp should actually gain support but why it didn't happen it's because many people doubt the credibility of that video so the video was filmed in a way as if it was all planned. the filming of the filming angle was perfect and besides he and his team reacted superfast and as if they knew exactly what was going to happen so that's why. a lot of people actually doubt the credibility and of course these are all speculations i have to say that but many believe that the attack was staged and that's why they didn't take it seriously so booting this guy out of office seems like a pretty big win for the pro-democracy camp but this is of course just
2:05 am
a municipal election. so what are the what's going to the outcome for hong kong how are they taking this well the results are very symbolic because the district council has. issued saying the results are actually only symbolic because the district council has relatively late to power in order for it in the political landscape of hong kong it has some sort of influence but not much. but it is giving a fresh fresh impetus to the protesters because it's approved for the protests supporters that if they are determined enough they can make a change and also there's a common argument among pro-government supporters they're saying that well a lot of the majority of the people are actually not in support of the protests but they are the silent majority and that's why they didn't say anything before. that they said that when one 4th of the population there was 2000000 people on the streets and also for change they were saying that they were arguing the ball but
2:06 am
then the other 5000000 people didn't come out and now this is just a slap in their face so do you think the protestors after this result are going to go back out on the streets yet definitely as long as the 5 demands of the protesters are not met people will keep on going out on to just streets. and now with the backing of the election results. the protesters can put pressure on carolyn's government and to ask for change and to osce carolan to respond to that in mots. reporter thanks for that analysis. now to some of the other stories making news around the world at least 26 people have been killed in a plane crash in the democratic republic of congo the aircraft came down in a residential area in the eastern city of goma authorities say the cause of the crash was potentially pilot error and. former new york mayor michael bloomberg has
