One month after his election victory, Aziz Akhannouch formed a “technical” government in which the RNI logically inherits key ministries.
Rejuvenated, more feminine – without being equal – the new government led by Aziz Akhannouch and validated by King Mohammed VI on October 7 is above all fundamentally technocratic.
In a national context combining health and economic crisis, but also deep social inequalities, the head of government, close to the Palace, will have the main mission of implementing the main royal orientations and in particular the New Development Model (NMD). This explains why “politics” has been completely (or almost) erased from the family photo.
The “regalian” still outside the government fold
Concretely, this government has 24 ministers and deputy ministers, including 7 women. Eighteen ministers come from the three parties that make up the government majority: RNI, PAM and Istiqlal.
First observation, all the holders of “sovereign” ministries, without political affiliation, were renewed: Nasser Bourita remains at Foreign Affairs, Abdelouafi Laftit at the Interior, Abdellatif Loudiyi at the National Defense Administration, Mohamed Hajoui at the General Secretariat of the government and Ahmed Toufiq in Habous (Islamic Affairs). These are departments that are not part of the prerogatives of the head of government.
Another “safe bet” and irremovable, Fouzi Lekjaa, both president of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation and director of the state budget, who becomes Minister Delegate to the Minister of Economy and Finance in charge of the budget, and which will have to work closely with the entire ministerial team.
