Morocco, Politics, 10/13/2003
Moroccan Party of Justice and Development (PJD) (moderate Islamist party represented in the parliament) welcomed the reform of the family law (Mudawana) announced Friday by king Mohammed VI at the opening of the fall parliament session.
The party says in a communique-release this Saturday it "welcomes and supports the review of the Family law announced by Amir Al-Muminin (commander of the faithful) as a pioneering reform, and considers it to be in favor of the family and of women, in addition to being a substantial asset for the entire Moroccan nation."
The PJD adds that "it values the keen concern of Amir-Al Muminin, His Majesty king Mohammed VI to see to it that the reform of the family law is in line with the prescriptions of Islam and with the aims of our religion, which advocates justice, equity and call for honoring human beings."
The king announced major reforms to the family law that regulates matters of marriage, divorce and inheritance.
