Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- On the sidelines of the opening of the first session of the first legislative year of the tenth legislature, King Mohammed VI lambasted, without any equivocation, and lauded of critics, in clear terms, the lack of commitment and responsibility of Morocco’s public authorities and state institutions when it comes to performing their basic duty of assisting Moroccan citizens, stressing that if Moroccans are seeking his assistance to resolve simple problems and issues, it means “that something, somewhere, is not functioning properly.”
“There is much talk about citizens meeting the country’s King and seeking his assistance to solve countless problems or to overcome difficulties,” King Mohammed VI said.
“Some people do not understand why citizens seek the assistance of their King to resolve simple problems and issues. What this means, in fact, is that something, somewhere, is not functioning properly,” the Moroccan monarch stressed.
“Naturally, I take pride in interacting directly with citizens and in fulfilling some of their basic needs,” King Mohammed VI further noted.
“I will continue to do that and to serve my people. The question is: Would citizens ask me to intercede if state agencies did their job?” the Moroccan monarch wondered.
“It goes without saying that citizens resort to me because they find doors shut, or because of some shortcomings in the work of state agencies, or because they want to bemoan some injustice they have suffered,” King Mohammed VI added.
