On asked about the synchronization of the position of the rule of law with Abadi's remarks on the "commander of necessity," al-Maliki said that "this attitude did not come as a reaction to the declaration and description found in it," adding, "I was not the commander of necessity or a dictator and did not strike or change the constitution."

On the other hand, al-Maliki said that "sit-in platforms and positions that were supportive of the cause of the scourge, which entered Iraq," pointing out that "the sit-in process was a cover for each mobilization and mobilization done by Daash in Anbar desert."

Maliki said "If I made the decision to cancel the sit-ins, even if directly and military were rescued Iraq from Daash, but we are late in so as not to say that we hit the protesters."
