Morocco votes on revised constitution today

Moroccans are voting in a referendum on a revised constitution seeking to curb King Mohammed VI's near absolute powers in the north African nation.

Mohammed announced the referendum last month in what is widely seen as a move to ward off "Arab Spring" street protests sweeping the region.

Pro-democracy movements in Morocco have been calling for more rights and greater freedoms since the beginning of the Arab Awakening earlier this year.

The revised constitution grants the government executive powers, but retains the king at the helm of the army, religious authorities and the judiciary and still allows him to dissolve parliament, though not unilaterally as is the case now according to Aljazeera
