Three big winners to form a new cabinet


RABAT: Morocco’s designated prime minister, Aziz Akhannouch, said yesterday that the three biggest winners of this month’s parliament­ary election, the liberal RNI and PAM parties and the conservati­ve Istiqlal, had agreed to form a new cabinet.

King Mohammed on September 10 designated Akhannouch, the leader of RNI, to form a new government after his party came first in the election, taking 102 of the 395 seats in parliament.

The three parties would together command 270 seats compared to the 198 needed to pass legislatio­n.

But before he can announce the cabinet line-up, Akhannouch must clear it with the king.
