Kiosk 360. The party of progress and socialism (PPS) still can not process the way in which Charafat Afialal was expelled from the government. Worse still, the general secretary of the PPP has not even been informed. The case could destroy the majority of the government.
"The relationship between Abdelkader Amara, Minister of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water and his Minister of Foreign Affairs, Charafat Afilal, responsible for Water, was a public secret, but the proposal of the head of government, Saad-Eddine El Othmani To remove the division responsible for Water has not even been raised to the leadership of the PPP that heard the news through the official statement, it is through these words that the secretary general of the PPS, Mohamed Nabil Benabdellah, answered a question from the Al Massae in this case that shakes the majority of the government, including the alliance between the PPP and the PJD.
In the edition of the weekend of 25 and 26 August, the executive committee states that the head of the government together with the chairman of the National Rally of Independents (RNI), Aziz Akhannouch, has decided to join the king, successor of Mohamed Bousaid, he preferred to mention the abolition of the Water department without even notifying the PPP that managed the sector. The incident caused an earthquake within the leadership of the PPP that will meet early next week to discuss political behavior.
Some leaders of the Book are already calling for a withdrawal from the government. According to daily sources, however, the question of the oppression of the department has been raised a long time ago because of the tense relations between Minister Amara and Charafat Afilal. This, adds the same sources, was stripped of all privileges, which had negative consequences for the management of the department and the realization of certain projects. And during the entire episode of the conflict between the two members of the government, Benabdallah's interventions with the head of government did not produce any results.
The dispute was also raised at the level of coordination between the two parties, without being resolved. And yet it is a strategic ally. This case, which is likely to blow up the coalition government, was also tackled by the daily newspaper Al Akhbar in his edition of the same weekend. In addition, the secretary-general of the Public Prosecutor made a request to the head of government to bring together the majority of the government to discuss the issue of the transformation of the department in a direction of the Ministry of Equipment.
But the sources of daily life say that the next meeting of the government majority will be devoted to the issue of the mid-term renewal of the offices of both houses of Parliament and the possibility of being candidates on behalf of presidents of both legislative bodies. This means that the PPP's protest, in case it is planned, will be drowned in a very strategic political menu for the government coalition, which it seems, pushes the PPS to leave the government ship.
