Moroccan King Addresses The Nation On Throne Day, Flags Many Issues

He also made reference to the tumultuous relations with the Algerian neighbor, assuring his attachment to a concord between the two peoples.

On Saturday, the king gave the speech in which he addressed several social issues and also spoke in detail on the question of relations with neighbouring Algeria. From the outset, the monarch claims to insist "on the need for Moroccan women to provide their full support in all areas". Addressing the reform of the Moudawana, Mohammed VI clarified that it "does not consist in granting women graceful privileges, but, much more precisely, in ensuring the full enjoyment of the legitimate rights conferred on them by law. In today's Morocco, it is indeed no longer possible that she be deprived of it".

It calls for "the operationalization of constitutional institutions concerned with the rights of the family and of women", with an update of national mechanisms and legislation dedicated to the promotion of these rights. For Mohammed VI, the Family Code “is no longer enough as such. The experience has indeed highlighted certain obstacles which prevent the reform initiated from being perfected and the expected objectives from being achieved,” he pointed out.

In addition to the question of women in Morocco, but also that of the reform of the Family Code, the royal speech also addressed the harmful effects of the Covid-19 crisis, which "have been felt in all economic and social sectors. social". "Indeed, at the cost of a considerable effort, the State has borne the exorbitant cost of the fight against the pandemic by granting direct material aid to needy families and by providing support to the affected sectors," said Mohammed VI.

We assure the Moroccan people of our firm will to find a way out of the current situation and to promote rapprochement, communication and understanding between the two peoples.

Recalling the vaccination campaign, the Head of State also discusses Mandatory Health Insurance (AMO), the reform of social protection and promises that by the end of the current year, "the construction site of the mandatory health coverage will be completed, extending to RAMED beneficiaries".

With regard to the economy, the royal speech emphasized that "the concerted efforts of the State and the public and private sectors have enabled the national economy to withstand crises and upheavals and thus achieve conclusive results in the different production chains. "But this upturn was short-lived due to the international situation," said Mohammed VI.

“In addition to a modest agricultural campaign, exogenous factors have led to a surge in the prices of certain basic necessities. This is, by the way, a problem that no country has escaped,” he says.

"We aspire to work with the Algerian presidency so that Morocco and Algeria can work hand in hand," he said. In the last part of the royal speech, Mohammed VI returned to relations with the eastern neighbor, Algeria. "I emphasize once again that the borders that separate the Moroccan people and the brotherly Algerian people will never be barriers preventing their interaction and understanding," he recalls.

"These gossip about Moroccan-Algerian relations are totally senseless and sincerely appalling. As far as we are concerned, we have never allowed or will allow anyone to harm our brothers and neighbors,” warned the King. "We assure the Moroccan people of our firm will to find a way out of the current situation and to promote rapprochement, communication and understanding between the two peoples," he continued.
