G8 Presidency Statement
on the Constitutional Referendum in Morocco
Paris, 18 juillet 2011
The G8 welcomes the results of the referendum organized on 1st July upon King Mohamed VI's initiative, which will herald a new era for the kingdom of Morocco.
Through a peaceful and democratic process, important changes have been introduced in Morocco's institutional system. Echoing to the aspirations expressed by the Moroccan people during recent months, the new Constitution contains significant progress in the fields of government accountability, rule of law, protection of human and social rights and the development of individual freedoms for men and women.
G8 Members encourage the full and swift implementation of Morocco's reform agenda, based on continued dialogue with a wide range of political voices, and are determined to extend their concrete support to that end. In this regard, as that implementation proceeds, they express their readiness to associate Morocco to the Partnership established in Deauville on 27 May 2011 to help Arab countries engaged in a transition to free and democratic societies and in economic modernisation.
