Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI), has called for adherence to the directives of the religious Marji`iyya (highest religious authority) in electing the qualified honest person within the honest slate, explaining that Iraq needs competent men who place the general national interest above the narrow personal interests.
This came up when His Eminence met a large crowd of sheikhs and dignitaries from the Sayyid Marsami tribes in Balad and Dujail on Tuesday, March 18, 2013 at his Baghdad office.
His Eminence pointed out to the long and deep relationships between the Marji`iyya of imam Muhsin al-Hakim and the good Iraqi tribes, stressing that Iraq represents a real force and a great momentum through its diversity and plurality of good components, explaining that the Martyr of the Niche quite often talked about the relationships of affection and love among all components of the Iraqi people and the significance of stretching and deepening bridges to enhance the strength of the Iraqi fabric.
On their part, sheikhs and dignitaries of Marsami Sayyids emphasized their maintaining the pledge to seek light from the directives of the religious Marji`iyya (highest religious authority) and to elect the most competent and the most able candidate for the governorate councils.
His Eminence demonstrated his understanding of the problems and obstacles from which the areas of Balad and Dujail suffer, stressing his keenness about removing injustice from residents of both of these cities and providing the necessary services for them.
