Mohamed Hajoui, Secretary General of the Government, will call Friday 26 for a meeting to discuss a law project aiming to institute daylight saving time throughout the year.
While it was expected to end Sunday 28, Morocco will stay in daylight saving time all year round.
This measure purports to end the confusion caused while flipping back and forth between the standard time and daylight saving time, Hespress said.
This measure is expected to cause an uproar among Moroccans at a time when the European Parliament has backed a plan to end daylight saving time in a number of countries.
Morocco has used daylight saving time since 2008 to increase the country’s national economy competitiveness by lowering energy consumption and easing transactions with partners from Europe in the first place.
