Rabat - After a group of Istiqlal Party (PI) members have denounced what they called the “individual decisions” of the party’s Secretary General, Hamid Chabat, calling for change to “restore the position of the party in Morocco’s political scene,” a large majority of Istiqlal parliamentarians issued a communiqué disowning Hamid Chabat and supporting the group of 14 dissidents of the Executive Committee, who are in the majority.
