Morocco’s moderate islamist Justice and Development Party has won the country’s general election, taking 107 seats in the 395-seat parliament.

The result means the PJD’s General Secretary, Abdelilah Benkirane, will almost certainly be chosen as the next prime minister by King Mohammed.

The party’s Vice-General Secretary, Lahcen Daoudi, says Morocco won’t move forward in isolation: “We want to be open to the rest of world. We must develop partnerships with Europeans who are very close to us, with the Arab world as well. The PJD is part of a logic of globalisation. Morocco will not be locked away, it will open up more.”

The support for the PJD came as a result of its pledges to introduce greater democracy, less corruption and greater efforts to tackle social inequalities.

The PJD will now attempt to form a coalition with the secularist Koutla bloc, which won 117 seats
