Historic defeat for Muslim Brotherhood in Morocco’s elections

A historic defeat for the Muslim Brotherhood Justice and Development Party (PJD) in the elections in Morocco and the Moroccan Prime Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani, supported by the PJD, has failed to win a seat in parliament.

The Moroccan Ministry of the Interior confirmed that the turnout exceeded 50 percent, and this participation is much higher than the last percentage recorded in the 2016 elections.

The minister said that The Liberal Party leads the parliamentary elections with 97 seats.
