Last Friday, King Mohammed VI officially opened the Moroccan Parliament. He began by addressing both houses of Parliament. In his speech, the King called for the creation of an economic and social council that would serve in an advisory role to the legislature and also to the executive branch of the Moroccan government.

According to an article in Agence Maghreb Arabe Presse, the King stated that the council should be made up of “representatives of the nation’s forces, productive sectors, socioeconomic and professional institutions, as well as qualified members of civil society and a substantial number of women”. The King wants the council to be as inclusive as possible. He told the members of Parliament that the council should not only include Moroccans residing in Morocco, but also Moroccan nationals who are living abroad. The recruitment plan is, “in accordance to with my wish to involve in the council all skilled Moroccans, wherever they may be”, said the King.

The goal of the King’s plan for the council is to improve the credibility of the parliament, and to help the government run more efficiently. The King hopes that a more effective government will lead to more development within Morocco.
