He stressed the need to commit to the instructions of the religious authority and to promote the services provided to Iraqi citizens who went through hell in the areas of health, education and services.

His eminence indicated that the Martyr of the Niche movement has an integrated vision for building the State based on a clear program to be announced very soon, calling on the third Rasafa organizations to double their efforts in serving the people and explaining their program. Sayyid Al Hakim finally assured that change for the best is in the hand of Iraqi voters, who have to use this opportunity instead of wasting it and then crying over spilt milk.
