Poverty – The Moroccan government offers financial support to over one million families

78

The Minister in Charge of Public Affairs and Governance, Lahcen Daoudi, stated that the government is willing to issue 1000MAD in favor of one million Moroccan families, representing 4 to 5 million people; however, most of these families are not listed in Morocco’s social register.

On the light of his House of Representatives’ meeting, Daoudi said that Morocco’s financial support plan lacks targeting means, noting that a part of this support goes to wrong hands. Daoudi’s words, however, raised the ire inside the House of Representatives headquarters, for a number of MPs called the Minister to identify the people he referred to in his statement.

For his part, Daoudi claimed that “there was no need” for him to point at anyone, since the people he meant are known to the public, Al-Massae said.

Daoudi indicated that the government’s 1000MAD grants will cost the treasury over 12 billion MAD, stressing that he is prepared to appear before the competent committee to talk further about the beneficiaries of these subsidies.
