According to Manar Slimi, a Moroccan political analyst, the PJD, the Islamist Moroccan party that leads the government, should read four political messages after the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohammed Morsi:
The first message is that the belief in the idea of being the sole representative of the people is wrong. The street is shared by multiple powers.
The second message is that the Muslim Brotherhood and their political party gained their balance through abandoning the “White and Black thinking”. They altered their binary view of society as two poles, good and evil.
The third message is that the Muslim Brotherhood became aware of the existence of “the deep state“, and that the issues of the elite and those of the people are two distinct things.
The term “the deep state” has recently been used in Egypt to refer to the military authority and security services.
The fourth message is that the Muslim Brotherhood will be tested on the ground .They shall face the challenge of transforming speech into public policy, which is still the major problem of the current Islamic governments in both Tunisia and Morocco.
The analyst went on to say that the same street through which the Islamists gained power will protest against them, once they fail the mission.
It is noteworthy that after the elections, the Islamist Party PJD gained massive popular votes, a fact which made the party impose itself on the Moroccan political scene. Equally importantly, the party gained the confidence of being backed up by millions of Moroccans, just like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
However, the slight difference between Mohammed Morsi and Ahmed Shafiq in the presidential elections shows almost half of the electors did not vote for him. Therefore, he has to take their expectations into great consideration.
In Morocco, the massive demonstration of May 27, 2012, in Casablanca, made it crystal clear that the Islamists are not the only power that can mobilize the street.
Mr. Benkiran, the head of Moroccan government, has already mentioned in one of his speeches that Arab Spring is not over, and is still hovering over the country.
