Newly-structured Government Meets Criteria of Efficiency and Competence, Head of Govt.

Rabat - The newly-structured government of HM the King meets the criteria of efficiency and competence given its structure, the organization of its departments and the presence of women and youth in its composition, said, on Wednesday in Rabat, head of government Saad Dine El Otmani.

In a statement to the press after the audience granted by HM King Mohammed VI to the members of this government, El Otmani noted that the government in its new version meets the criteria set by the Sovereign in the Throne Speech in July 2019, particularly with respect to integrating new competences and the presence of women and youth. He added that the rejuvenation process is necessary not only for the positions of senior officials, but also at the level of the government. The number of government members in its new version was reduced from 39 to 23, said El Otmani, pointing out that the efficiency of this cabinet is shown in the grouping of some ministerial departments, as well as in the role that will entrusted to the Head of Government in terms of coordination between these departments to ensure greater convergence and cohesion between the different public policies.
