Morocco’s 2011 Parliamentary Elections!

• 21 novembre 2011 • Commentaires (0)

On November 25, Moroccans will go to the polls to cast their vote in historic parliamentary elections following the adoption of broad Constitutional reforms in July.  This will be the first parliamentary election in the region since the Arab Spring began.  Nearly 4,000 Moroccan, US, and international observers including the National Democratic Institute and Morocco’s National Human Rights Council, are currently working with Moroccan civil society leaders to train and assist in carrying out the elections as well as ensure against irregularities on election day.  To date, more than 13.6 million Moroccans have registered to vote.

So what are Morocco’s Constitutional reforms and how will they strengthen the country’s democracy?  How is Morocco’s reform process unique in the region? What will the elections mean for women and youth in Morocco?  What is the likely political leaning of the new Parliament?
