Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI), has called for the forming of a government of a majority of political forces comprised of the Iraqi people’s basic components, explaining that the three past years witnessed the failure of the political forces to reach a government of full national partnership. His Eminence pointed out that the political majority government may be the way out of the political crisis because it relies on a partnership of components in which the lead is taken by a team that is harmonious with several political movements representing the Iraqi people. He explained that the Supreme Council in particular and the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche in general did not reach a decision to participate in a majority government in the present term, stressing that everyone reached the conviction that partnership in its present form is no longer a successful and productive option; rather, slogans are raised here and there. This came up in the Weekly Cultural Forum which was held at the office of His Eminence in Baghdad on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. His Eminence called on the political forces to admit this conviction and to go to other solutions, warning that staying in the same whirlpool takes the country to slides which he described as being dangerous.
Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim pointed out that the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche is one of the movements that advocate national partnership the most due to his belief in the country’s diversity. His Eminence retracted saying that the political reality is witnessing a big change at the present time, that the components are no longer represented by forces that are united in their political vision, granting a big opportunity to go to a majority government provided the basic components in the society are represented in it. His Eminence added saying that the majority government also permits fledgling political forces from all components to assume their roles in the country’s political development movement.
