Contrary to Morocco, Mauritania grants of all parliamentary seats to its diaspora

-

- Advertisment -

Mauritania joined Algeria and Tunisia. The neighbor to the South comes, and to grant to its nationals living abroad the right to take part in parliamentary elections.

This Friday 4 January, the independent national electoral Commission (CENI) announced in a press release the final list of candidates in the race for the four parliamentary seats allocated to constituencies from outside (Europe, Asia, Africa and America), indicates the agency’s official press FRIEND. The election is expected on 19 January.

Only the kingdom still refuses to devote a quota of its five million Moroccans residing abroad. As a reminder, if the Tunisian people of the world are entitled to ten members in the unicameral Parliament, the algerian diaspora has eight seats in the lower House of Parliament. A figure which, however, remains below expectations of the civil society, in particular the one established in Europe.

In Morocco, despite article 17 of the Constitution of July 2011, which states that “Moroccans living overseas shall enjoy the rights of full citizenship, including the right to be electors and eligible”, the MRE could not have had the right to vote in their country of residence nor in the general election of November 25, 2011 or at the electoral appointment to October 2016.
