The political situation is expected to remain broadly stable, although protests over poverty and unemployment will continue, as will sporadic strikes by trade unions over pay and jobs. However, they will not pose a threat to the regime, which will respond with further modest liberalising reforms. There is an ongoing risk of attacks by Islamist militants on government or Western targets, although such groups enjoy little public support.

The king, Mohammed VI, and his advisers will maintain their dominance over policymaking, although the constitution, adopted in 2011, intended to strengthen the prime minister and parliament and to give the judiciary more independence. The king's extensive constitutional powers will not be heavily circumscribed.

To build support, the government will try to boost economic growth and reduce unemployment, pushing ahead with measures to upgrade infrastructure and agriculture, improve education and stimulate manufacturing and mining. However, progress will be held back by limited fiscal resources, inefficient bureaucracy and problems arising from widespread nepotism and corruption.
