Conscription to replace National Guard?

There's talk in the parliament defense and security committee about preparing a proposal to reinstate conscription as an alternative to the National Guard project, which has been stalled from more than a year. Supposedly, the Speaker or one of his deputies is said planning to convene a meeting of the heads of political blocs to discuss differences over the National Guard proposal, and the potential for replacing it with conscription.

Interesting this is coming from Sadrist "lawmaker" and militia leader Hakim Zamili because the idea of reinstating conscription used to come from secular Sunni nationalists like DPM Mutlaq.
