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

The moderately Islamist Parti de la justice et du développement (PJD), which heads the government, will find it difficult to placate its secular partners. Following the loss of a key coalition partner in July, the PJD has been obliged to assign eight ministerial posts to a pro-monarchy party, Rassemblement national des indépendants. This could lead to growing friction.

The king, Mohammed VI, and his advisers will maintain their dominance over policymaking despite a new constitution 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.
