Morocco’s King Mohammed pledges constitutional reform

Morocco’s King Mohammed VI has promised “comprehensive constitutional reform” in the north African country, BBC informs. In his first speech since last month’s protests across the nation, the king said that “individual and collective liberties will be expanded”. He said he would give up the power to name the prime minister, who would be chosen by parliament. This meets some of the demands of street rallies, similar to those seen in Tunisia and Egypt.
