Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi stressed on Wednesday the need to move the powers to the provinces properly and the non-interference of politicians in executive affairs.
“The fighters who started from the provinces to liberate al-Anbar, Salah al-Din and Mosul have overcome sectarianism and achieved national unity and victory in their finest sense,” the statement quoted the prime minister as saying during a speech at the meeting of the supreme coordination body between the provinces.
Abadi called for “investing in national unity and working with devotion and sacrifice like the fighters who carried their lives on their shoulders,” pointing out that “we have the honor as Iraqis to eliminate the oppressor and we will continue to liberate the remaining land in Tal Afar, Hawija and West Anbar with the same strength and determination.”
“We must unite in the building as we unite in the fighting to achieve the greatest victory,” he said, stressing the need for cooperation and coordination between the provinces and stability and attention to rumors and suspicious campaigns aimed at destabilizing the security and terrorism of society.
He pointed out that “protecting the citizens from the responsibility and duty of the government, especially doctors,” directed “the importance of clarifying the circumstances of these crimes that occur as a result of individual actions and family disputes and not organized crimes as rumored.”
On the transfer of powers to the provinces stressed the “insistence on the transfer of powers properly and according to clear instructions and non-interference of politicians in matters of executive,” directed that “the fees are not only in return for service provided to citizens and do not burden them.”
