Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al Maliki expressed, on Wednesday, his willingness to execute all demands advanced by Anbar Provincial Council.
Many Iraqi Central Government’s authorities will be transferred to local provincial governments, Maliki revealed.
“Demands advanced by Anbar Provincial Council are totally legitimate,” Maliki said in a statement, which Alsumarianews received a copy of, following his meeting with a number of the province’s Sheikhs and Dignitaries. “I am ready to execute all these demands except ones exceeding my constitutional authorities,” he promised.
“We will transfer all authorities of Iraqi Central Government to local provincial governments except ones concerning sovereignty, security, international affairs and wealth distribution that should remain central in order to equally distribute them on Iraqis,” Maliki explained.
“It is necessary to preserve national unity between all Iraqis and increase provincial authorities to enhance services and fasten provinces reconstruction,” Maliki stressed, a source told Alsumaria.
