The Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, affirmed the Martyr of the Niche movement’s support for the participation of independent Iraqi elites in the coming elections, indicating that the participation of competent men could help establish a parliament capable of developing visions, plans and programs that can solve the country’s problems. His Eminence called upon Iraqi competencies for an active, influential and strong presence, in order to create a qualitative parliamentary session better than the past ones.
This came during His Eminence’s meeting with a group of elites and competent men from the province of Wasit in El Kut, on Saturday 21/9/2013.
His Eminence pointed out in his conversation with the attendees that terrorism draws its power from the weakness of security bodies at the level of tools and lack of modern means, as well as the lack of a security strategic vision before that. He added that the electoral process can introduce reform, highlighting that the Martyr of the Niche movement’s project is one that aims to build a fair and modern state, which has both a horizontal and vertical expansion. Sayyid Al Hakim detailed the vertical aspect of the project as being related to the state through laws and administrative revolution, and explained the horizontal aspect as being the projects that were raised in the provinces. He stressed the need for a strong, active and interactive center, with the use of centralized planning and decentralized implementation and the investment of others’ experiences. He stated that people can no longer tolerate the political disputes among different blocs and are now looking for leaders who can provide them with services.
It should be mentioned that there was, during the meeting, an interactive conversation between Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim and the elites of Wasit about the international and regional situation, especially the latest developments in Syria and the changes that some Arab countries have witnessed, as well as questions and discussions about the security and economic situation.
