    "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."

    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

      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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

        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.

    I think that this year Corona should be subject to a vote because it is the people who will be applied to the rules and if they choose the rules it can ease their tension and fear and make them more committed.

    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."

    .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!

    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?

    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.

    Yes, we must submit to these rules, because great safety will be deposited on us, and neglecting them, we will become in a dangerous situation. 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 said this because I think this becuase different people will have different perspectives and ideas about Covid 19 and so to make it fair about these ideas it will be good to vote as then they can also hear other ideas that they might think is better."
