Rabat – June 17, 2013 (MAP)
The ongoing crisis in the Moroccan government coalition, coupled to last week’s clash between the head of government and the speaker of the house of representatives, is making the major highlights of Moroccan editorials published this Monday June 17, 2013.
Aujourd’hui le Maroc comments that the argument between the head of government and the speaker of the house of representatives could become a real crisis within the already existing crisis in the government coalition, stressing that the head of government’s party, PJD, has reacted rather in a threatening manner.
This implies that the Istiqlal party will also have to show solidarity with the speaker of the House of representatives who is also a member of the party’s executive committee and not leave to the PJD the opportunity to score points in the showdown opposing the two parties.
For Al Mounaataf, the confusion in the management by the government of several sectors has become very embarrassing for the government because of the political conflicts opposing the government coalition members.
The paper recalls that the adverse economic and financial situation has forced the government to borrow money, noting that the head of government has not stood by his promises and that the excessive use of international loaning is likely to send “negative” messages to investors and harm the business atmosphere in Morocco.
