Morocco: Parliamentary elections to happen in 2016

[AEPMorocco’s parliamentary elections have been slated for October 7 according to a government source. This will be the second time since constitutional reforms were adopted in 2011 to address unrest during the Arab Spring that plagued the country.

Though the new constitution gave the elected government more powers, King Mohammed VI, who became King of Morocco after the demise of his father King Hassan II, still holds the final authority.

A government statement read, “The next parliamentary elections will take place on Oct. 7, 2016,”. The ruling Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) that won the 2011 elections is expected to win again in the face of austerity measures the party is currently pursuing.
