The Office of the Supreme Leader in Najaf, Mr. Ali al-Sistani, on Friday (November 29, 2019) called on the Iraqi parliament to assume its responsibilities and reconsider its options regarding the government.

And publishes (Baghdad today), the full text of the statement of the Office of the religious authority, as received, without amendment or editing, for the sake of accuracy in transport:

We read the text of what was received from the Office of His Eminence (as long as his shadow) in Najaf:

In the name of of Allah the Merciful

The Supreme Religious Authority follows with deep regret the recent clashes in a number of cities, especially the wounded Nasiriyah and Najaf, and the destruction of much of the precious blood and the destruction of many properties by burning.

The religious authority, having mercy on the honorable martyrs, consoling their families and calling on them for patience and solace, and for the wounded to recover quickly, reaffirms the inviolability of the assault on peaceful demonstrators and the prevention of them from exercising their right to demand reform. Peaceful demonstrators should distinguish themselves from non-peaceful people and cooperate in the expulsion of terrorists – whoever they are – and do not allow them to exploit peaceful demonstrations to harm citizens’ property and attack their owners.

Given the difficult circumstances in which the country is going through, and the apparent deficit in dealing with the authorities concerned with the developments of the last two months in order to preserve the rights and inject blood, the House of Representatives from which the current government is invited to reconsider its options in this regard and act in the interest of Iraq and the province It is called upon to accelerate the adoption of the electoral legislation package that is satisfactory to the people in preparation for holding free and fair elections whose results sincerely reflect the will of the Iraqi people, procrastination and procrastination in the conduct of this pain. R, which is the gateway to overcome the current crisis in a peaceful and civilized manner under the roof of the constitution will cost the country a heavy price and everyone would regret it.

Enemies and their tools are planning to achieve their malicious goals from spreading chaos and devastation to internal fighting and then bringing the country back to the age of abominable dictatorship. Everyone must cooperate to miss the opportunity.   

The religious authority will remain a support for the Iraqi people, and they have nothing but advice and guidance to what they believe is in the interest of the people, and it remains for the people to choose what he deems fit for the present and future without guardianship of anyone.
