Washington DC - While the Moroccan public believes that many of the decision-making powers remain in the hands of the Makhzen (a multiplicity of official institutions that govern Morocco), citizens were hoping to see Prime Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani and his ministers heavily involved in managing the crisis in the Rif. It is the responsibility of the head of government to answer to the people during periods of social upheaval. For now, key ministers remain missing in action!
