The King of Morocco is due to announce proposals for constitutional reform tonight in response to nationwide demonstrations.
Mohammed VI is to make a televised address, with some reports indicating he will include curbs on his powers.
Back in March he appointed a commission to investigate options for reform, weeks after the start of demonstrations.
Opposition political parties took part in consultations.
Abderrahmane Benamrou, Secretary General of the Justice and Development party, said: “I think in general the project has taken into consideration most of the suggestions of the parties. The general atmosphere of the meeting was good, with the participation of all parties. We will present this draft to our different groups, before taking the right decision.”
But it remains to be seen whether protest groups will be satisfied. Observers say the King’s proposals are likely to be put to a national referendum.
The demand for reform comes as security concerns are heightened, following a deadly bomb attack in Marakech at the end of April.
