英语专业四级考试新闻听力突破 VOA-Unit01

[00:06.31]第三章 VOA新闻突破训练

[00:12.28]Unit 1 Politics

[00:15.94]News Item 1

[00:20.31]In a rolling flourish of activity,

[00:22.37]protesters gathered near the White House,

[00:24.69]the Capitol, the Internal Revenue Service,

[00:26.75]and the American Petroleum Institute

[00:28.87]among other well-known landmarks

[00:30.81]to voice their anger over the continuing war in Iraq.

[00:35.12]Among them: New York resident Jim Anderson,

[00:37.62]who traveled to Washington

[00:39.15]to take part in the demonstrations.

[00:41.75]Polls have shown a gradual erosion of popular support

[00:45.09]for the war effort in Iraq since Saddam Hussein's ouster.

[00:47.97]The low-point for approval of the war

[00:50.68]came a year ago,

[00:51.81]when opinion surveys

[00:53.16]showed roughly seven of 10 Americans opposed.

[00:56.00]Although a majority of Americans

[00:58.44]continue to disapprove,

[01:00.00]pessimism over the war's chances of success

[01:03.37]appears to have moderated slightly

[01:05.37]since President Bush ordered a troop surge

[01:07.78]that is believed to have brought about a decrease

[01:10.22]in bloodshed in Iraq over the last nine months.

[01:23.47]News Item 2

[01:25.81]Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama

[01:28.88]forcefully rejected the idea of running

[01:31.97]as Hillary Clinton's

[01:33.22]vice presidential running mate Monday.

[01:35.56]Obama's comments came

[01:37.19]in the wake of suggestions

[01:39.03]from the Clinton campaign

[01:40.28]that the two candidates form a dream ticket,

[01:43.16]with Clinton in the top spot.

[01:45.25]Campaigning in Mississippi

[01:47.19]in advance of Tuesday's primary,

[01:49.47]Obama left no doubt

[01:51.44]that he rejects the idea of joining a ticket

[01:54.35]in which he would agree

[01:55.69]to be the vice presidential running mate

[01:57.66]of Hillary Clinton.

[01:59.25]Obama's comments

[02:00.94]came after remarks from Hillary Clinton last week

[02:03.97]suggesting the possibility of the two rivals

[02:07.00]running together on the same ticket,

[02:09.22]with Clinton in the top spot.

[02:11.34]Hillary's husband, former President Bill Clinton,

[02:14.72]also promoted the idea,

[02:16.75]noting that each contender

[02:18.72]would bring strengths to a combined ticket.

[02:31.72]News Item 3

[02:33.66]South Korean officials

[02:35.25]are confirming an election result

[02:36.91]that has been expected for weeks.

[02:38.81]Former Seoul Mayor Lee Myung-bak

[02:41.94]has apparently won the presidency

[02:43.72]by about half of the popular vote.

[02:45.85]With more than 90 percent

[02:47.66]of the popular vote tallied

[02:49.19]late Wednesday night,

[02:50.50]South Korean election officials said

[02:52.72]former Seoul Mayor Lee Myung-bak

[02:55.15]has about 48 percent of the day's votes.

[02:58.62]Campaign officials

[02:59.81]at the headquarters

[03:01.21]of Lee Myung-bak's Grand National Party

[03:03.24]erupted into cheers earlier Wednesday,

[03:05.68]as national news networks

[03:07.43]forecasted his landslide victory.

[03:09.52]Outgoing President Roh Moo-hyun

[03:12.71]phoned Lee with a congratulatory message

[03:15.46]soon after the election's results became clear.

[03:17.96]Mr. Lee, a former Seoul mayor

[03:20.31]and corporate chairman,

[03:21.52]has promised to cut taxes,

[03:22.77]double per capita income,

[03:24.74]and boost South Korea's growth rate

[03:26.90]from the current four percent to seven percent.

[03:29.30]He has also said

[03:31.59]he will take a more "businesslike" approach

[03:33.30]toward South Korean aid

[03:34.43]and investment in North Korea.

[03:46.09]News Item 4

[03:48.18]Taiwan's newly elected president says

[03:51.24]he will work to improve ties with Beijing

[03:53.50]as promised during his campaign,

[03:55.99]but he says

[03:57.53]he has no plans to visit China any time soon.

[04:00.46]Many Taiwanese citizens

[04:02.50]are happy with their leader-to-be,

[04:04.71]but at the same time are wondering

[04:07.25]how China and Taiwan will get along now.

[04:10.49]Fireworks erupted Saturday night

[04:13.03]over the campaign headquarters of Ma Ying-jeou,

[04:15.84]a Harvard-educated lawyer

[04:17.99]and former mayor of Taipei.

[04:19.90]Ma, from the Nationalist Party,

[04:22.43]won Taiwan's presidential election

[04:24.78]with 58% of the vote.

[04:27.34]More than 41% of voters

[04:29.59]chose his opponent Frank Hsieh

[04:31.56]from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party.

[04:34.02]The incumbent President Chen Shuibian

[04:37.15]is widely seen as pushing for Taiwan independence

[04:40.77]which has angered China

[04:42.34]and it's led to increased cross-strait's tension.

[04:45.46]Beijing considers the island part of the Chinese nation

[04:49.37]and it's vowed to use force

[04:51.40]if necessary

[04:52.12]to prevent it from declaring independence.

[05:04.59]News Item 5

[05:07.31]Malaysia's opposition is scoring some wins today

[05:11.06]in the country's general elections.

[05:12.72]The Democratic Action Party

[05:14.96]has ousted the ruling National Front Coalition

[05:18.01]in the northern state of Penang.

[05:19.73]The opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party

[05:23.17]will keep control of the northeastern state of Kelantan,

[05:26.92]which was previously the only state in Malaysia

[05:30.54]held by the opposition.

[05:31.98]One voter in Kuala Lumpur says

[05:35.17]he voted for the opposition today

[05:37.01]out of disillusionment with the ruling coalition.

[05:39.60]"I think, better we vote Islamic, Islamic …No.

[05:44.79]This is not very clear about Islamic will.

[05:47.89]It's time for change."

[05:49.89]The opposition has called for an end

[05:52.20]to Malaysia's system

[05:53.55]of race-based political parties.

[06:05.61]News Item 6

[06:07.73]After a very troubled year

[06:10.08]that saw Japan's ruling party

[06:12.36]embroiled in allegations of

[06:14.17]financial wrongdoings and scandals,

[06:16.92]Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

[06:19.01]has decided to call it quits.

[06:21.30]During a televised news conference,

[06:23.64]Mr. Abe says he is resigning

[06:26.42]because he believes

[06:27.67]Japan needs a new leader

[06:29.36]to fight against terrorism,

[06:30.82]and the country needs a new leader

[06:33.17]the people can support and trust.

[06:46.49]News Item 7

[06:47.86]Zimbabwe's High Court

[06:50.14]has begun hearing a petition

[06:51.83]from the country's main opposition party

[06:54.15]demanding the immediate release

[06:56.11]of presidential election results.

[06:58.11]Zimbabwe's electoral commission

[07:00.80]has yet to release any results

[07:03.15]from the presidential vote,

[07:04.61]which was held 8 days ago.

[07:06.14]The delay has raised concerns

[07:08.55]that the government of President Robert Mugabe

[07:11.17]is trying to rig the outcome.

[07:13.27]Earlier today,

[07:14.64]state media said

[07:15.90]the ruling party requested a recount

[07:17.96]and for the electoral commission

[07:19.92]to defer any announcement of the results.

[07:22.55]The spokesman of the opposition party says

[07:25.74]his request is a sign of ballot tampering.

[07:38.11]News Item 8

[07:40.43]Pakistan's ruling party

[07:42.71]has conceded defeat

[07:44.18]in Monday's parliamentary elections

[07:46.40]in which voters

[07:47.71]rejected President Pervez Musharraf's political allies

[07:51.18]in favor of opposition parties.

[07:53.68]The chairman of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q party,

[07:57.27]told reporters today

[07:59.52]that members of his party accept the results

[08:02.14]and are prepared to sit on opposition benches

[08:05.49]in parliament.

[08:06.65]Early results show

[08:07.96]slain opposition leader

[08:09.33]Benazir Butto's Pakistan People's Party

[08:11.86]winning the most seats

[08:13.61]in the 342-member National Assembly so far.

[08:17.18]Former Prime Minister

[08:19.30]Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-N party

[08:22.09]is in second.

[08:23.37]Final results are expected late today.

[08:26.52]Mr. Sharif said he plans

[08:29.30]to meet with Ms. Butto's husband Asif Ali Zardari -

[08:32.87]now the leader of the PPP on Thursday

[08:36.15]to discuss forming a new government.

[08:38.71]He urged President Musharraf

[08:41.09]to accept the verdict of the people

[08:42.96]and step down.

[08:44.08]The results so far

[08:46.12]also show Islamic Party

[08:48.02]is failing badly in Pakistan's tribal region

[08:51.27]with the secular Awami National Party

[08:53.84]holding a lead

[08:54.93]in the northwest frontier province.

[09:07.09]News Item 9

[09:09.09]Egypt says

[09:10.68]President Hosni Mubarak will not

[09:13.40]attend an Arab summit

[09:15.06]in the Syrian capital Damascus this week.

[09:16.93]Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul-Gheit

[09:20.21]told the state News Agency today

[09:21.99]that a lower level cabinet minister

[09:24.34]will head the Egyptian delegation instead.

[09:26.80]The two-day's summit

[09:28.68]which began Saturday

[09:29.84]is typically attended

[09:31.12]by heads of states

[09:32.27]from the participating Arab countries.

[09:34.15]Egypt's move follows an announcement Tuesday

[09:37.12]from Lebanon

[09:37.96]that it would boycott the summit.

[09:39.77]On Monday

[09:41.17]Saudi Arabia announced its king Abdullah

[09:43.76]will not be attending the summit

[09:45.83]in protest against Syrian meddling

[09:47.55]in its neighbor's affairs.

[09:59.33]News Item 10

[10:01.23]Officials in the government

[10:03.26]of South Korea President Lee Myung-bak

[10:05.89]say they will back United Nation's resolution

[10:09.17]critical of Human Rights abuses in North Korea.

[10:12.73]South Korea Foreign Ministry officials

[10:15.36]confirmed Wednesday

[10:16.61]Seoul will support the measure

[10:18.45]expected to come to a vote

[10:20.29]in the United Nation's Human Rights Council

[10:22.67]later this week.

[10:24.26]Several similar measures in previous years

[10:27.51]is based on the reporting

[10:29.26]of UN appoint of special research

[10:31.64]of Vitit Muntarbhorn, a Thai legal scholar.
