Rabat – Moroccans express greater confidence in the military and public schools than in any other national institutions.
A poll conducted by the Royal Institute for Strategic Studies (IRES) has asked Moroccans to say how much confidence they have in a variety of Moroccan institutions.
The military and public schools in particular earn the most respect, with 93 per cent are confident in the institutions.
Politics and civic society rank last among these institutions. It’s not surprising that there’s very little trust in Moroccan politics in the wake of the government reshuffle and repeated disputes between majority and opposition parties.
What’s more, 52 per cent of Moroccans stressed the importance of intermediaries to access basic services, while 45 per cent think it is legitimate to pay a bribe to get a job.
91.4 per cent of respondents said they are supporting social protests, especially when it comes to protesting against insecurity and crime.
The poll has also shown that family continues to play a leading role in the lives of Moroccans. 50 per cent said they are for the resolving of conflicts between spouses through dialogue. 16 per cent said that a wife must obey her husband.
The IRES poll used a sample of 5,000 respondents who were surveyed between 2009 and 2012.
