Social tensions, resulting from widespread disaffection with the formal political process, high joblessness and discontent with austerity reforms, will persist, leading to occasional popular protests and strikes. There is also an ongoing risk of attacks by Islamist militants on government or Western targets, with Moroccan fighters returning from conflicts in Syria and Iraq a particular source of concern for the authorities. However, neither of these will be sufficiently serious to pose a destabilising threat to the regime, and broad political stability will be maintained

Although the constitution, adopted in 2011, intended to strengthen the prime minister and parliament and give the judiciary more independence, the king, Mohammed VI, and his advisers will remain the ultimate decision-makers. The king's extensive constitutional powers will not be heavily circumscribed.

Unpopular reforms, such as subsidy cuts and a planned pensions overhaul, will erode the regime's popularity. To build support ahead of parliamentary elections in 2016, the government will push ahead with measures to upgrade infrastructure, improve education and stimulate manufacturing and mining. However, progress will be held back by limited fiscal resources, inefficient bureaucracy and widespread nepotism and corruption.
