Regarding article 103 (vote of confidence) which his party did not use, he indicated that it was because of the possibility of a government resignation. For the explosive internal situation within the PJD at present, the SG readily drew a parallel with a meeting in 2003 called to dissolve the PJD and which ultimately ended well, El Otmani said. ” The PJD has always been able to overcome the hardships it faced »He clarified during the inaugural speech.

Some saw it as a response “from the shepherd to the shepherdess” relating to the famous document signed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad, Nasser Bourita, which formally mentioned the suspension. of any contact with the German Embassy in Morocco and which said ” the ministerial departments and all the bodies that come under their supervision, are requested to kindly suspend all contact, interaction or cooperative action, in any case or in any form, both with the German Embassy in Morocco and ” with related German cooperation organizations and political foundations “.
