Morocco: King Appoints New Prime Minister

Moroccan King Mohammed VI appointed Saad Eddine El Othmani of the Justice and Development Party (PJD) to the post of prime minister March 17, MAP News reported. The move follows a long political deadlock that culminated in a March 15 announcement that the king would replace PJD member and former Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane with another member of the party. The PJD, in spite of its large wins in October parliamentary elections, has found its power lacking compared with that of the monarchy. The process of building a parliamentary coalition broke down because Benkirane was unwilling to compromise with pro-palace secular parties.
