Today’s date marks 20 years of King Mohammed VI’s reign.He ascended the throne in 1999 after the death of his father King Hassan II on July 23, 1999.
Last year, King Mohammed VI delivered Throne Day speech from Al Hoceima.
In the speech, commemorating the 19th anniversary of the sovereign’s accession to the throne, King Mohammed VI urged his government to increase efforts to curb social disparities.
“Achieving goals, redressing imbalances, and tackling economic and social problems requires collective action, planning and coordination between different institutions and actors, especially between the members of the government and between the political parties forming the government,” the King said.
The King also emphasized the importance of improving public administration to “enhance the trust and promote serenity within the community and among all its components.”
“Citizens’ affairs cannot be put on hold for they do not relate to a specific period of time. Responsible political bodies are those that stand by the citizen, in good times and bad,” the King announced.
The King also warned that political parties do not “make efforts to carry out their mission.” He urged politicians and political parties to engage Morocco’s youth in politics.
“(…) they should attract new elites and mobilize young people to engage in political life, for today’s youths are the ones who know what the current problems and requirements are,” the monarch said.
