Rabat - The election campaign has been punctuated by two events extraneous to it. The first one is the arrest of two French journalists caught red handed trying to blackmail the King of Morocco and extort money for not publishing a book they claim would jeopardize his probity. The second is the video of the French Foreign Minister allegedly drunk during a press conference. It was reported he had to be walked out to avoid questioning from the media.
