The first priority is the security of the country and the people through dissolving all irregular military entities, establishing the army and police, reinforcing the Iraqi armed forces for executing missions of broader responsibilities for the rule of the law and protecting the borders, in addition to organized withdrawal of the multinational forces, fighting criminals, retrieving the pride and dignity of Iraqis in the region and worldwide, believing in the national unity as a basis for security, refraining from sectarianism and racism, constructive dialogue, punishing criminals and forgiving the others, fighting the corruption relating to stealing the people’s money through punishing any official in the government, who is proven guilty, especially as corruption is aggravating in governmental institutions, and overcoming terrorism in separate locations in the country.
