He does not hesitate to demand, for example, the dissolution of the factions, and despite his leadership personality, he is very firm in some positions related to reform.

He has rejected all initiatives that want to maintain the consensual government and eliminate the project of the majority. He did not officially announce his rejection of the latest initiative put forward by Al-Kazemi, as perhaps it will satisfy Al-Sadr and open new horizons in the dialogue between the political parties.   LINK
