Morocco: Calls for a reduction in fuel prices continue, amid the intransigence of Makhzen regime in responding to people’s demands

Calls to demand a reduction in fuel prices continue unabated in Morocco by political, legal, trade union and economic actors, as well as citizens who are afflicted by the high prices of this vital substance and the rest of the basic products, amid the intransigence and disregard of the Makhzen regime and its president, Aziz Akhannouch, in responding to the demands of the Moroccan people.

In addition to the great criticism of the government over the high prices of fuel, which amounted to demanding the departure of its president, the distribution companies in turn – led by the company owned by Akhannouch – receive a large part of the criticism due to the increase of their profits at the expense of the suffering of Moroccans, with suspicions of complicity and reliance on practices contrary to the law.

For its part, the Competition Council was not spared from high criticism, because it did not take any initiatives to deter and reprimand the hydrocarbon companies that violate the law, and to protect the Moroccan consumer despite the increasing demands for it to intervene.

In this regard, the National Union of Road Transport Professionals called on the Competition Council to disclose the outcome of the complaint it filed regarding the possible existence of anti-competitive practices in the fuel distribution market.
