The political situation in Morocco is stable, but the price is heavy suppression of dissidents, as well as control over organizations. There has been established a semi-democracy, as a halfhearted attempt of bringing the system of Morocco closer to the European Union, which Morocco wants cooperate with. Still the king, Muhammad 6 controls everything.
Recent elections in Morocco have been performed in a way that foreign observers have considered free and fair.
But at the very same time can people who are not working for any political groups live in safety from the secret police. There are few indicators on political change in Morocco even after the chage of kings.
