The kingdom of Morocco is a constitutional monarchy where the King has supreme executive powers.
“H.M. King Mohammed VI has ruled Morocco since the death of his father, King Hassan II, in July 1999. The latest ruler in a long dynastic line of Alawites, Mohammed VI is Morocco’s constitutional monarch and – because of His direct lineage with Prophet Mohammed, the founder of Islam – also serves as His country’s spiritual and moral guide”
The king appoints the prime minister ( Abas el Fassi) and the Supreme Court Judges. There is a two part house of representatives; 2/3 is elected and 1/3 is choosen by an electoral college.
