Rabat, July 2, 2013 (MAP)
Effects of the government coalition dissensions, the 2nd health convention (Marrakech, July1-03) and the balance sheet of the implementation of the constitution, two years after its adoption, are the highlights of Moroccan editorials this Tuesday July 02, 2013.
Aujourd’hui le Maroc which run an editorial titled “majority and consensus” draws a comparison between the situation in Egypt and in Morocco, stressing that “the legitimacy gained through the polls does not give to the Islamic brotherhood the right to shape the Egyptian society according to their own way and their vision”.
“While the polls give an arithmetic majority, the winners have a duty to be at the service of all citizens”, the editorialist writes.
For “Le Soir Echos”, “Morocco has to succeed in maintaining the balance between systematic challenge of all decisions and proposals and the need to preserve our fragile balance by reinforcing individual freedoms and our democratic foundation”.
Attajdid considers that the political crisis, that has been going on for two months now, goes beyond the simple will of some politicians to change the orientation. It notes that all indicators, including the reasons given by the opposition to justify their decision to boycott the parliament’s monthly session of the head of government, the appearance of new alliances and the “absurd” political plots conducted by the new leadership of the Istiqlal party show that the goal is to harm the government experience led by the Islamic party.
Drawing the balance sheet of the constitution implementation, two years after its adoption, +Al Ahdath Al Maghribia+ says that it is worrying how Morocco is still operating with only a half of its constitution while the enactment of the other half, namely regulatory laws, is still delayed.
The second conclusion, the editorialist says, is that the political enforcement of the constitution has not yet gotten rid of the search of confidence at the expense of the new principle of power check and balance.
The editorialist considers that the political class mindset still operates with the 1996 constitution and is therefore reaping the fruits of an anti-democratic interpretation of an essentially-democratic law.
On its part, L’Economiste which run an editorial titled “daring”, says that Morocco has been closely following the French model and failed to realize the structural evolutions in the medical field, noting that the globalization of offer and expectations has not yet succeeded in controlling the virulent professional pockets who are protesting the public authorities decisions.
In doing so, this category of practitioners is soiling all the profession and the first result that the convention should seek is to overcome these lobbies.
