The Pandemic is becoming an enemy to democracy by restricting freedom of movement, association ad Assembly. It is also a threat to freedom of worship. It is an enemy to everything people treasure. It is a threat to human life and freedom. A state of emergency is declared when any phenomenon or organism is a threat to human existence. All National Assembly members should answer this basic question:

IS COVID-19 NOT A THREAT TO LIFE AT A LARGE SCALE?

IS IT NOT PROVIDED UNDER SECTION 34 OF THE CONSTITUTION TO DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY WHEN A THREAT EXISTS?

WOULD IT BE A RESPONSIBLE THING TO SAY THAT THE THREAT POSED BY COVID-19 IS NOT EQUAL TO A STATE OF PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY?

IF WE ACCEPT THE EXISTENCE OF THE THREAT SHOULD WE NOT CREATE MEASURES TO ADDRESS THE EFFECTS?
