1st Parliamentary Elections in Morocco

Moroccans are scheduled to take part in their first parliamentary elections ever, on Friday. The balloting follows the establishment of a constitution in the North African nation, a few months ago.

More than 13 million people are expected to vote on the 395 seats. About 4,000 local and international monitors will be present at polling places to supervise the process.
