He stressed by saying, "The moment I took office, I swore to keep the trust and I maintain the trust. Therefore, there will be early, free and fair elections."
On the electricity crisis, Al-Kadhimi said, "I support the demands of the people to hold accountable those who caused their suffering. I am awaiting the results of the committee formed by the parliament to investigate all the failures in the electricity file."
Al-Kadhimi called on the legislative authority to "urgently submit its report to be added to our investigations to put this file before the Iraqi people and the judiciary."
He indicated, "the government signed a few days ago the electrical interconnection agreement in the Gulf and we are proceeding with this issue seriously," adding that, "we decided to produce gas to operate Iraqi gas stations. It is not our fault that successive governments imported gas-powered stations and did not work on Iraqi gas."
