If the main title of the current phase “Democracy will and the democratic transition”  is the same that preoccupied the national powers since independence, it remained an incomplete project till the current political moment after the Arab Spring whose effects were seen in Morocco after 20th February movement in having a new constitution considered by the observers as the start of change in Morocco policy towards parliamentary monarchy in the short run. But the fall storm that infected the Arab spring affected the political scene in Morocco. It put the saying of “Morocco exception” to the test and was clear in the to and fro case and in the crisis of forming the government that ended in exempting the justice and development party Secretary General Abdelilah Benkirane and appointing Dr. Saadeddine Othmani to come up with a new government far from the spirit of the elections of October 7. It led to a lot of controversy in the political scene in Morocco. This entire track can be considered as a severe conflict between wills of powers of different trends.
