Vote expected to boost Islamists

September 08, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Morocco began counting votes after a record low turnout in parliamentary elections that were expected to show gains for Islamists pressing an anti-corruption message. Political analysts say the moderate Islamist Justice and Development Party has a chance of winning Cabinet posts if it emerges as the party with the most seats. The party emphasizes conservative values and ethics, a message popular in lower-income urban suburbs.
