Marrakech – Moroccan Parliamentarians move to pass on their pensions to their children by inheritance, but the government seems to be opposed to this move.
Several parliamentary representatives have submitted a request to the Office of the House of Advisors seeking to enact a proposed law that would allow their children and relatives to inherit their pensions after their death.
Parliamentarians seek to pass on their pensions, with an estimated value of MAD 10,000 ($1,150), for the same period that they carried the parliamentary membership, to their children and relatives.
Parliamentarians who suggested passing on their pensions have expressed concern about the future of their families after their death, and wish to ensure the same quality of life for their families after they are gone.
A retired parliamentarian can combine his pension and his salary if he is employed elsewhere, either in the private or public sector.
Showing no enthusiasm for such a proposal, the government postponed any discussion of the bill to an unspecified date.
