Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Only few days following an array of PJD parliamentarians [party leading the current governmental coalition in Morocco] making no bones about accusing the head of Morocco’s central bank, Bank Al-Maghrib (BAM), Abdellatif Jouahri of deliberately releasing wrong growth figures few months before the upcoming parliamentary elections, the president of the PJD parliamentarians group in the parliament, Abdellah Bouanou accentuated the rippling saying that the “government has become a target [to attacks] from many sides, to the point that we started perceiving such recurrent attacks as an ordinary thing.”
Bouanou called the figures released by Jouahri, “all but neutral, especially given that this is a sensitive period as we are on doors of [parliamentary] elections.”
“The head of the Bank of Morocco has blackened everything done by the government on the economic front, in a meeting with businessmen in Agadir, which raises many eyebrows vis-à-vis the rationale behind such statements,” Bouanou stressed.
It is worth mentioning that the head of Morocco’s central bank, Bank Al-Maghrib (BAM), Abdellatif Jouahri said that Morocco’s GDP won’t exceed 1% in 2016, among others.
