    "Should decisions about covid-19 rules go to a public vote? I said Not sure

    I said this because 1_ People's decision cannot always be right. 2_ By voting, there will be a split between many opinions in favor of the decision and many opinions that do not agree with this decision, which will cause dispersion and doubts when taking the solution that has the most votes."

      Hi fulfilled_measurement, I agree with what you've mentioned about the split opinions if given a public vote which is usually always the case and when it comes to public health it is a major concern. I see that you have said not sure, hence I would also like to know what you think are the positive implications if public has been given the vote.

        Of course, these expectations may be right or wrong, because I said I am not sure, but giving the public the right to participate in voting may have advantages such as
        1_ Many people have an intelligent mind and have wisdom in making decisions. We may miss a great opportunity when their opinions are not heard.
        2_ There may be many doctors who did not get a job or doctors who have retired, and many experts and doctors who may help a lot in making good decisions.
        3_ People's participation in voting has a positive impact on themselves when they feel that they have influenced society or contributed to solving an issue that could have eliminated humans. This makes them feel comfortable and happy.

          Three strong reasons, fulfilled_measurement! Which do you think is the strongest one?

            In the opinion of the third reason, the feeling of accomplishment (regardless of the fact that it leaves behind a lot of positive energy and psychological comfort), it keeps the person on progress and participation, and also leads to many useful ideas.

    I said yes because you must know the people's point of view before applying any idea or any law regarding the virus, because this issue is a global issue that does not only concern governments, And in order to see the application of your ideas that you want to become laws in the beginning, you must work on people’s problems with this idea and the reason for their rejection of it so that you do not face difficulties and protests when implementing it,Such as: gatherings in Britain that were against compulsory vaccination, carrying the slogan (My body is optional), and here you see that the decisions on this issue also are not your choice or the choice of the government, Rather, it is the choice of public opinion and the majority of the people, Also, if we release the idea and form a global conversation, we will find better and more effective ideas because they are from the people that clarify the opinion of different groups of the people,so it targets the people in a correct way, not in a hostile way, forcing them to do a law that they themselves do not support

      healthy_antelope's comment 16 Jan 2022

      I strongly agree with you, because when making any fateful decision, you must refer to the citizen and know his opinion on this decision so that the citizen is involved in managing the affairs of his country and not be marginalized in it.

    I said this because Of course, before the government takes any decision to transform it into a law, it must resort to correcting the people, especially in the plight of the epidemic. Why?
    1- To exercise the right to express an opinion, highlighting the state’s support for human rights, He appears to us in ordeals and difficulties, and an indication that the state supports human rights at all times, whether difficult or goo
    . 2- To see if the decision taken will be accepted by the people or not, and if it is not met Accepted by the people and applied on the ground, the people will reject it and will not implement it, and many problems and disputes will arise between the people and the government (examples are protests that refuse to work in homes)
    3- And because all the proposed solutions are to serve the people, their views must be heard to see what suits them and what is not. It suits them
    4- To make the people aware that the government cares about them and works to serve them, and that their opinions are of importance to the government, and this increases the people’s love for the state and the government.

    Should decisions about covid-19 rules go to a public vote? I said Yes

    I said this because Yes government decisions must be subject to a vote because. It must take the opinion of the people and the opinion of the people, and this thing increases the people’s confidence in it. In my opinion, when you vote, there is trust among the people. The state will be strong and coherent. Governments must also make this vote with every decision they take. For example, when governments said that we must be vaccinated From the solution of covid 19, did she vote to take the opinion of the people? Of course, no, she did not take the opinion of the people, so not everyone was sure of the validity of the vaccination, and not all the people did the vaccination, so covid 19 spread in abundance

      majestic_moon's comment 18 Jan 2022

      It is true that the government should take the people's vote in setting the rules for Covid_19, but it cannot take their opinions on everything, for example the vaccine, because it is possible that people may not agree to take it in the vote, but forcing people to take the vaccine was better and not in everything the president should take an opinion The people are the ones who elected him, so they must accept his rulings.

          Katie @ Topical Talk's comment 19 Jan 2022

          As for those who did not vote for the president's orders as long as the president was appointed impartially and without violating the law. But if this president in not appointed by law, no one can take any ruling, speech, or order from him. The people are only satisfied with the president who was elected on the law.

    In my opinion, the decision that was passed should be voted on before it becomes law, in order to avoid problems or rejection by the people.
    If we impose the law before voting, it is possible for the people to get angry and refuse to implement it, and they will make demonstrations. It is possible that some courts in some areas refuse to implement it, and they will say that it is unjust and inappropriate for the conditions of the people.
    The decision regarding COVID-19 is different from any other decision because it threatens people's lives
    In my opinion, voting should take place in order for us to take more points of view, as many points of view, ideas and minds are better than the point of view of a sane and one idea, and that the provisions of the law be corrected according to the desire of the people, and this makes it more applicable, because it is issued by the desires of the people when they did not implement it We have the right to tell you a punishment because they are the ones who imposed it
    In my opinion, it is also betterThat people choose and vote to punish those who violate this law to implement and enforce the law and the punishment
    So that the law continues and is enforced in all cases, times and places.

  • British Council.jpg champion_seed | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory

    Yes, because if any decision is taken, prevention and caution should be taken, and they will be responsible for that. And make the homeland safe and judge it by taking precautions such as using masks and using sterilizers.

    I said No

    I said this because I believe that the matter is turning into an emergency, and government efforts do not have time to vote and time is racing to control the event, and the most important reason is that the state seeks the safety of society and people and the public interest necessitates taking decisive and quick measures to achieve the goal"

    I think before the government makes any decision or rules, they should consult the people. Should the rules of the Corona virus save? I agree, because this is for our safety.

  • British Council.jpg kind_cymbals | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Jan 2022

    I do not support that because these rules should be attributed primarily to the government because my observations are that these laws are universal and that most countries in the world apply them. The government must be strict in these decisions because this epidemic is not an easy thing. After all, many families have been written off from the civil registry, and the matter is returned to the government in the first place. People's opinions are always important, in this case too. However, I can adapt to what people think according to the circumstances. People sometimes get emotional when they take decisions and there is no room for emotions when taking decisions during this pandemic.

      kind_cymbals's comment 17 Jan 2022

      Is that strictly true - "no room for emotions when taking decisions"? What if those emotions are empathy, kindness and care for others?

        Tom @ Topical Talk's comment 17 Jan 2022

        To make my idea clearer. I meant that some emotions will make corona virus spread even more. Negative emotions like anger for example. Sometimes the government ask shops to close for example. Owners of shops might get angry because when they close they will not be able to sell anything. When these owners vote they might vote against closure of shops when the right thing to vote for is to close the shops. Hopefully I made my idea clearer now.

    Should decisions about covid-19 rules go to a public vote? I said Yes

    I said this because
    1- This will increase the friendly and loving relationship between the citizens and the government

    2- Because if it becomes a law and the people reject it after that, the government must tell them that they are the ones who chose this

    3- Because every person has the right to administer the affairs of his country, and this is considered one of the affairs in which the citizen must participate

    4- This will help to activate the role and rights of citizens in their countries

    5- Because this will help countries to stabilize, because their citizens are the ones who chose this."

  • British Council.jpg determined_deer | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    15 Jan 2022

    .I chose Yes because the citizen's vote on any law related to Covid_19 is an important means through which individuals can influence decisions and choose what is appropriate and appropriate for them, and when the citizen votes, he feels that he is the one who made the laws, so he is more committed compared to the laws that the state imposes and that the participation of citizens Voting included their right to self-determination, the protection of their rights, and their feeling that they are all equal in managing the affairs of their countries in times of crisis, especially in light of the current Corona pandemic.

    In the vote I said "No"
    Why?
    Because we do not want to happen like what happened about the issue of vaccination, it has become mandatory, whether you agree or not, you will be vaccinated!
    The Covid-19 decision should not become a political issue!
    It is better for every country to be free in its opinion and what it does for its benefit, people should not be forced to do anything!
    If you say that covid 19 decisions by voting the world will end, you are very wrong and wrong, there will be no point in getting rid of this virus by submitting to a public vote or even compulsory vaccinations!
    But we can get rid of it ourselves and by ourselves!

    15 Jan 2022

    Now you answered yes:

    I have questions and evidence that may show how important the topic is:

    First: COVID19 is a serious disease that may infect a large number of people, and when infected, it may lead to a large spread of the disease throughout the region, and this may lead to a large number of people being hospitalized.

    Second: On the question of whether the COVID-19 rules should be subject to a public vote:

    My answer was yes...
    Because the rules of the disease will be an obstacle to people if they are not aware of these rules and if people are not aware of the extent of the danger!

    First: If these rules are not subject to a public vote, there will be civil problems among all the people in this town, because if a member of a person’s family becomes infected and transmits this disease to other people, this will lead to a large spread of the disease throughout the town..
    There are people with other diseases
    People must also know this disease and what it is so that they can know the rules of those injuries..
    And also if they are people who suffer from other serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, etc..
    If they are not able to know the risks and rules of this disease, it will spread to them, which will lead to their death, and this is a dangerous thing

    I said this because I said no because the public may not have all of the information before voting, the rules in place currently are thought through by scientists and doctors, and are made to keep us safe. Another reason I said no is that some people may not think of the repercussions of their actions, for example, A new law saying that households can't mix is voted on, and because people want to see friends and family, they might vote against it, subsequently resulting in more spread of Covid19.

    Should covid-19 rules be subject to a public vote? I said covid19 rules I said yes. Because I said that because 1- The people’s point of view must be known before implementing any idea or anything else, 2- Also, the government’s decisions should be subject to a vote because people’s opinion must be taken. We let her down and we have to say yes by voting, right?? When governments said people should be vaccinated against COVID-19, did they vote for people's opinion? Of course not, it did not take people's opinion, so not everyone was sure of the correctness of the vaccination. If the government asked people before taking the necessary measures, they would have said yes. Why would covid19 have spread if the government were to hold the people accountable?

  • British Council.jpg observant_artic_fox | Khan Younis Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    16 Jan 2022

    Yes, I think the governments' decisions and rules regarding Corona virus must go to a public vote because Covid 19 is a global crisis that all people all over the world are going through regardless their position, so the government, specialists and all community classes must cooperate to overcome this crisis because it is a general epidemic that affects health, social, economic, political, and all aspects of life.

All necessary precautions must be taken and health orders must be followed. We are watching the efforts of these doctors to make the necessary medicines and vaccinations. We have also seen the vaccination law that allows the vaccination of people over 12 years old, and this is a beautiful development and we must We must appreciate the fatigue of doctors and scientists and help them take this vaccination and the necessary precautions to end this virus and return to a beautiful normal life and parties.

    I do not think the rules imposed by health will be negative for a society, but rather it is correct, but some people have diseases or may have a problem with the rules, so a general vote must be taken

    It is a 'No' in my opinion. Leaving any decision to public means accumulating thousands of lakhs of opinions and leaving it to them to chose one. Conflict of interests is inevitable and can led to distress. Therefore we have a person representing a state/province in any parliament or international discussion, it is impossible to accommodate every single citizen of the participating country in a UN meeting for example and likewise in a parliament. An individuals without professional and analytical information of the economy and crisis would think of its benefit and might not be able to forsee the welfare of the nation, which is where the government needs to step in take decision on behalf of the nation.
    A better way to incorporate public opinions is to bring in bill and discussions in the parliament and legally form laws over it which can be challenged by other representatives and through judiciary. Eventually every elected person represents public and their interest.

    I believe that covid-19 rules should go to the public. This is because the government don't always follow the rules thy set. An example is when Boris Johnson was partying in the first lockdown and we were stuck at home only been allowed to go out once a day for an hour. This shows that if the public were to vote for the covid-19 guidelines people may listen to them as it would be because they had picked them.

    Not yet no,
    Because covid cases are still extremely high at the minute. This is due to lack of following rules in the first place. If it went to public vote people would most likely rebell and would take it upon themselves anyway to abolish all rules which would result in utter chaos, therefore resulting in more covid restrictions and more loss in the economic system which would also result in more small businesses closing. if there was covid rules in place by the government which could still fine people for breaking laws, people would most likely still follow the rules to some extent and would stop the economic growth of the government from collapsing.

    "Should decisions about covid-19 rules go to a public vote? I said No

    I said this because if it goes to a public vote lots of people who aren't from the government don't want lock down and want their freedoms back but the death rate might be quite high meaning that we need a lock down to slow it down so their is less cases around but the most likely chances are if it goes to a public vote the people of the country won't chose to have a lock down especially if they haven't had covid yet because they all want their freedoms of being able to go out which will just make the death rate get higher and higher which would be even worse for the death rate."
