The king of Morocco, Mohamed VI, casting his vote for his own constitution reform, Rabat. The king reacted this way to the popular discontent in many cities around the country.

As other Arab countries, Morocco endures many problems keeping its traditions on its way to modernity. Morocco not only faces this tough balance, but the fact that the country is ruled, in many ways, by a Dictatorship. The king controls the legislative, the executive and the judicatory, is the head of the army and the commander of religion matters.

Morocco struggles with strong inequalities​. In one hand, illiteracy and poverty spread all over the country, a small middle class trying to make a life between modernity and religion. On the other hand, a small group of very rich families who control all the resources of the country and its head, the king, owning more than 1,500 companies trhough the country and ranking six ​on the list of richest kings on the world.
