The meeting agreed to stop inclusion and social research procedures until the end of the elections, stressing that this measure comes to prevent the citizen’s need from being exploited electorally, and not to influence his will in exchange for obtaining electoral gains, according to the statement.
It was agreed to file lawsuits against anyone who exploits citizens through the issue of social welfare, especially after many cases of exploitation of this kind were recorded.
The file of exploitation of social welfare was included in the provincial council elections, as a blackmail card in exchange for voting for specific candidates, and it may be one of the most prominent files that have been raised in recent days, in addition to the files of land plots and appointments.
Some social media sites reported that some election candidates were exploiting the social protection file, for the purpose of achieving electoral gains by tricking the beneficiaries into showing their names in the sixth meal launched by the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs.
