Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, said Iraq and its people need political will and serviceable strong government, explaining that during his meeting with the political body of the Sadrist movement led by Karar al-Khafaji at the latter's office in Baghdad, on May 17, 2014, they discussed how the National Alliance can be enhanced and turned into an effective institution that can watch those who ran for the political positions and hold them accountable when they fail. He also stressed the importance of the partnership between the main political powers and the formation of a harmonious team armed with the clear vision and the agreed upon platform, calling for quickly forming the government right after the announcement of results if they are reassuring for everybody and underlining the importance of moving quickly towards the formation of a government without repeating the past experience. At the same time, he reiterated the building of a new national alliance that works in an institutional manner and contributes to the decision-making, and not to be used as means to impose the prime minister.
For his part, the head of the political body of the Sadrist movement said he agrees with Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim in his vision on the need to build a new national alliance according to an agreed local system to ensure the unity of the alliance, pointing to the importance of working in one single team spirit and to draw lessons from the past experience.
