Morocco’s state televisions 2M tv and RTM broadcast with the unveiling of 2015 2 reports calling Egypt’s army forces toppling the “legitimate President Mohamed Mursi in july 2013 a coup d’état” and “not a revolution.”
During both reports broadcast on both 2M tv and RTM, the anchors stressed that former forces chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is “a coup leader” and that “Mursi was democratically elected, ergo he is the legitimate president.”
The change of Morocco’s stance vis-à-vis to Egypt has sparked debate in the country, especially that the Moroccan monarch king Mohammed VI was the first Arab leader to congratulate the toppling of the legitimate president Mursi back in july 2013.
It is worth reminding that when the toppling occurred, former Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs, belonging to the PJD party, condemned the toppling and called it a coup in front of the youth section of the Justice and Development party (JJD). Back-then, that move has cost him a hand and a leg as the man lost his seat during the reshuffling of the government.
