Maliki stresses importance of applying laws on Ba'athists.

The Premier Nouri al-Maliki pointed out that "We respect Ba'athists who declared their absolution from Ba'ath Party but we should apply the laws on those who insist on their Ba'ath Party membership."<p>He stated in a speech while meeting the Security Commanders within the Interior Ministry on Sunday "We witness debates over the Justice and Accountability Commission's decision of excluding some candidates from running in the next elections," noting that "Many of the Ba'ath members declared their absolution and started to work for the new Iraq."

He added "The procedures of the JAC are not political," stressing that "The excluded candidates belong to various sects."

"For those who praise the Ba'ath Party should follow up the JAC procedures," he emphasized.

"The Policeman duty is to protect the elections as well as the candidates at the same time," he concluded.
