Morocco’s Christians defeated Islamic party
While the Islamic party won 13 seats during the September election, they endured a net loss of 112 seats.
Religious minorities in the Muslim-majority country are hopeful but cautious.
Adam Rabati, President of the Moroccan Christian Union, noted that Christians played a key role in the defeat of the Islamic party by supporting other parties. Rabati said, “Under the new government we will still have to fight for our demands as Christians in our country.”
Morocco is ranked 27th on the Open Doors World Watch List of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian.
