Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The Moroccan Minister of Industry, Trade & New Technologies, Abdelkader Amara said that he thinks it is unreasonable to have 40 ministers in the Moroccan government.

Amara, who belongs to Morocco’s Justice and Development party (Known under its French acronym PJD), made the revelation in an interview published in today’s edition of the Moroccan daily Al Masae.

Among other things, Amara stressed that “40 ministers in the Moroccan government, to say the least, is very exaggerated. Such number is beyond the state resources.”

Amara further said that “the ideal for a country like ours is a team of 14 ministers.”

“A plethora of government officials is problematic for a healthy accountability system, especially when one ministry is headed by members of several parties,” Amara told Al Masae.

It is worth reminding that Amara works conjointly with two other delegate ministers in the Ministry he is in charge of, namely with Hakima El Haite from the Popular Movement Party (MP), in charge of Environment, and Charafat Afillal, from the the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS), in charge of Water.
