Morocco – Party Action Charter

Morocco – Party Action Charter Parties in Morocco's ruling political coalition have signed a “majority charter”, an inter‐party pact seen as an attempt to unify their ranks, local and pan‐Arab media reported.The charter outlines the ruling bloc's “joint work within the government” and was signed on February 19th at a meeting in Rabat, Moroccan news website Lakome2 reported (20/2).“What is interesting about this ‘charter’ is that it comes months after the formation of the government [in April 2017], marked by a visible ‘internal rift’, in particular after the king's replacement of six cabinet ministers,” the report said.Leaders of the political parties in the government coalition denied any political crisis within the government and “stressed their commitment to promoting the values of integrity in order to ensure the best implementation of the government programme”, according to pan‐Arab Al‐Jazeera TV channel.The Lakome2 website quoted the country's Prime Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani of the Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) as saying that it was natural for each party to pursue its own programmes in the government and its own “perceptions and orientation”, so it was normal to have “some differences of views”.El Othmani was appointed Morocco's premier in March 2017, replacing PJD leader Abdelilah Benkirane, whose attempts at forming a new government following the party's success in the October 2016 elections proved to be unfruitful.Following this, El Othmani agreed to form a coalition government with five other parties, breaking nearly six months of post‐election deadlock.With the National Rally of Independents (RNI) as the second strongest party within the coalition, its other members are four smaller parties – the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP), the People's Movement (MP), the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS) and the Constitutional Union (UC).The Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), Morocco's second largest party in parliament, has said it intends to remain in opposition.

Abstract

Parties in Morocco's ruling political coalition have signed a “majority charter”, an inter‐party pact seen as an attempt to unify their ranks, local and pan‐Arab media reported.The charter outlines the ruling bloc's “joint work within the government” and was signed on February 19th at a meeting in Rabat, Moroccan news website Lakome2 reported (20/2).“What is interesting about this ‘charter’ is that it comes months after the formation of the government [in April 2017], marked by a visible ‘internal rift’, in particular after the king's replacement of six cabinet ministers,” the report said.Leaders of the political parties in the government coalition denied any political crisis within the government and “stressed their commitment to promoting the values of integrity in order to ensure the best implementation of the government programme”, according to pan‐Arab Al‐Jazeera TV channel.The Lakome2 website quoted the country's Prime Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani of the Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) as saying that it was natural for each party to pursue its own programmes in the government and its own “perceptions and orientation”, so it was normal to have “some differences of views”.El Othmani was appointed Morocco's premier in March 2017, replacing PJD leader Abdelilah Benkirane, whose attempts at forming a new government following the party's success in the October 2016 elections proved to be unfruitful.Following this, El Othmani agreed to form a coalition government with five other parties, breaking nearly six months of post‐election deadlock.With the National Rally of Independents (RNI) as the second strongest party within the coalition, its other members are four smaller parties – the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP), the People's Movement (MP), the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS) and the Constitutional Union (UC).The Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), Morocco's second largest party in parliament, has said it intends to remain in opposition.
