My training goals are strength and power mainly in the lower body. I don’t really care which one is worked on most as long as I improve on them.

That could be an option, but - for instance - if you squat first on mon, then snatch, and then on weds snatch, and then after squat - on mon you’ll have more energy (and theoretically perform better) on the squat, but on weds, you’ll squat 2nd, and (theoretically) do so with less intensity than you did on monday. Seeing mixed results may be frustrating. You could mix up the squat rep ranges?
Squat: heavy 10 x 3
Squat: speed (lighter) 3 x 10
Or just don’t overthink it! Do the more complex movement/s at the beginning (snatches or cleans, etc) and then just smash some squats at the end. What is perhaps more important here is how well you recover between sessions. That can have a far greater affect on results than alternating the exercises between sessions. If you’re recovered, strong, fresh, motivated, etc, you’re good
