Casablanca – 100 Moroccan figures addressed an open letter to the Secretary General of Unified Socialist Party (PSU), Nabila Mounib, in support of her inspiring democratic experience.
Abdellah Hammoudi, an emeritus professor at Princeton University, leads the initiative. The letter was published on the Moroccan daily newspaper, Akhbar Al Yaoum, and held the signatures of many intellectual, media and art figures.
The letter hailed Mounib’s proactive and novel presence in the national political scene, and describes it as “inspiring” for women and young Moroccans to participate in politics.
The Unified Socialist Party, in alliance with the Federation of Democratic Left, will participate in the legislative elections on October 7.
The open letter addressed to Mounib applauded the Federation of Democratic Left for balancing the configurations of power in the political scene in Morocco, and managing to retrieve the trust of Moroccans in the democratic process:
“The Federation of Democratic Left represents a building block in an exhaustive political project, and a starting point of construction and reconstruction that leads to the emergence of a new political force that make the citizens, who deserted the polls in urban and rural areas, regain the confidence in the feasibility of the political work.”
The letter also mentioned that the democratic transition in Morocco did not succeed because of “confusion between the political power and the economic focus, which imprisons initiative and production.”
The open letter was signed by well-known figures in different areas, such as Fatima Al Ifriqi, Ahmed Assid, Ahmed Merzouki, Mohamed Madani, Najib Aksbi, and others.
