PAM secretary general, Abdellatif Ouahbi, denounced on Saturday the “financial oligarchy” that represents a “great danger” to democracy in Morocco.
Morocco’s economy is dominated by “financial oligarchy”, given the “technocrats’ continuous attempts to make all the political decisions”, Ouahbi declared, on April 17, 2021, at Fquih Tétouani Foundation in Salé.
Ouahbi was invited to a debate relating to political parties’ programs on “electoral challenges and society’s expectations”.
“This financial oligarchy tends to strengthen its grip on political action for the latter to boost the capital”, Ouahbi denounced, without revealing the identity of the so-called “figures” who make up for such a financial oligarchy.
However, Ouahbi’s allusion in this regard was clear, for it points out RNI’s leader and his comrades.
PAM Secretary General also noted that the question on human rights has come across some difficulties, given the way the latter is handled. “This issue has turned into a burden that our country is required to approach wisely”, he added.
Morocco is a “powerful” state that enjoys “solid” political and electoral experiences, Ouahbi stressed. Why then alter this electoral climate with human rights setbacks? He wondered.
During his press conference, Ouahbi also replied to questions related to Hirak Rif detainees, as well as Moroccan journalists subject to pre-trial detention for over a year now at Oukacha prison, among others.
