A new parliament is elected today in South Korea. This happens under the shadow of the corona epidemic under stringent regulations, but everyone can vote, including people in quarantine.
Korea is the first democratic country to hold elections in the corona crisis, and preliminary results show that voters appreciate President Moon Jae-in’s approach to the corona crisis.
No fewer than 550,000 people have been deployed to keep 14,000 polling stations safe during these times. Those who vote must adhere to strict conditions.
For example, people should wear a mask and gloves and keep at least a meter away. Disinfectant hand gel is also provided, and the temperature is measured.
Those who have a temperature higher than 37.5 degrees must vote in a separate room.
