No end in sight for Morroco political crisis after talks break down


No end in sight for Morroco political crisis after talks break downRABAT -- Morocco is facing an unprecedented political deadlock after the Islamist prime minister broke off talks on forming a coalition government following three months of fruitless effort. The impasse — apparently rooted in a power struggle between the Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) and figures close to the royal palace — threatens to provoke a political crisis and possibly even new elections. Since the vote Benkirane has been haggling to rebuild his coalition, which had brought together a range of parties including other Islamists, liberals and ex-Communists. Analysts say the talks have become a power struggle between Benkirane and RNI chief Aziz Akhannouch, a billionaire outgoing agricultural minister who is close to the king. Mohammed Madani, another political analyst and law professor in Rabat, said the failure of the coalition talks reflects a wider power struggle.
