Health Minister urges strict adherence to COVID-19 safety regulations
Irbid, Health Minister Nathir Obeidat Tuesday urged strict adherence to public safety regulations and defence orders on election day, including social distancing, avoiding gatherings and wearing masks, to guard against the coronavirus.
“Today is a constitutional merit and a national duty that His Majesty King Abdullah wanted to be in its brightest image,” he told Petra after casting his vote in the parliamentary elections at a school in the northern Irbid Governorate.
The minister hailed the Independent Election Commissions’ management of the electoral process, which he called “distinguished, smooth and comfortable”. He said it took him no more than two minutes to vote, adding that voters were largely committed to prevention measures and keeping apart at the voting stations.
