Barcelona – Conditions marking legislative elections of Oct. 7 confirm the Moroccan exception in the Maghreb region, said Spanish paper “El Periodico”.
The Kingdom is an exception in the Maghreb region given that it succeeded in preserving its stability and attracting, as a consequence, more foreign investments, said the paper in its electronic edition in an article on last Friday’s elections.
The Spanish paper, edited in Catalonia (north-east), recalled that the Justice and Development Party (PJD) won the Oct. 7 elections, the second of their kind since the promulgation of the 2011 constitution, with 125 seats out of the 395 making the house of representatives, followed by the Authenticity and Modernity party (PAM) with 102 seats and the Istiqlal Party with 46 seats.
Friday October 7’s elections took place under normal conditions without any major incidents. In addition, unlike the elections that were held prior to 2011, no political leaders protested the results of the elections or question the way in which the elections took place.
