Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim stressed the need for a well-positioned administrative vision and to connect provinces to the federal government in the center as well as for complementary roles between the administrative system of ministries and that of local governments and provinces so that the administrative systems of provinces fulfill their promises, provide services and maintain security and the adequate care for citizens. He stated that the provinces are restricted by a long chain of tight central decisions that must be reviewed with the ministries, not to mention the killing routine, the delay and sometimes the indifference to what the provinces need.       
This came during a speech delivered by Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq at the weekly cultural forum, Wednesday, 4/9/2013. 
His Eminence called for activating the new law of provincial councils which confers wide powers to the federal government and ministries in the center to support the provinces and give them more opportunities to build, accomplish, and give to these provinces what they deserve, underlining the need to find efficient, clear solutions to get rid of the state of complaining, depression and disharmony between provinces and the center.
Moreover, his Eminence considered the transfer of the ration card to the provinces as right and efficient step, provided the federal government ensures the support of the provinces in accomplishing this mission and removes the obstacles and administrative complications so that it is perfectly accomplished. He also stressed the importance that the provinces fully fulfill its obligations by dealing with experienced, skillful providers who are able to provide the rations to the citizens, in addition to finding internationally recognized independent centers to check foods and make sure they meet the right standards.
