Lahcen Daoudi of the PJD on "Transhumance"
In a recent interview, PJD Deputy Secretary General, Lahcen Daoudi, laments the recent trend ahead of the June local elections in Morocco of politicians switching from one party to another in order to improve their chances at the polls. Daoudi warns that this is "dangerous for our democracy, ” and raises concerns about the difficulty with meeting the new quota of 12% for women. According to Daoudi there is just not enough women interested in going through the process of being candidates for elections.
