Akhannouch told the media that during the consultations to form the new government, whose first round ended Wednesday, “meetings were held with several political party leaders during which each party presented its vision.” He stressed that “the Party of Justice and Development (PJD) had apologized, as has the Secretary-General of the Unified Socialist Party (PSU) Nabila Mounib, who informed me that she will be joining the opposition.” Akhannouch began Monday his consultations for the formation of the new government by meeting several political parties leaders.
