Morocco: February 20 Movement boycotts king's reform invite

Casablanca (Morocco) - AMIPS - The February 20 Movement has announced its boycott to the Moroccan King's reform invite, according to one of its members.

"We refuse to be part of a pseudo-democratic process that seeks to give Moroccans half the reform they deserve," Ahmed Mediany, a member from the group's branch in Casablanca, Morocco's biggest city, told Reuters.

Ther Movement is demanding reforms that put democratic limits on the monarchy and say the king must curb his business and political clout and that of his inner circle.

They also want to see legal cases brought against officials and businessmen they accuse of abuse of power, public fund mismanagement and other malpractices.

The group has spearheaded some of the largest anti-government protests the North African state has witnessed for decades, unsettling a political elite desperate to prevent any spillover of popular revolts from Tunisia, Libya and Egypt
