World in Brief / MOROCCO

Final results show secular victory

September 11, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Morocco's conservative Istiqlal party won the most seats in parliamentary elections, allowing it to form the next government with its current ruling coalition, final results showed.

The Istiqlal, or Independence, party won 52 seats, ahead of the opposition Islamist Justice and Development party, which had 46 seats, the Interior Ministry said.

When it became clear the Islamist party would only take second place, it accused unnamed opponents of buying votes to skew the results.

The government dismissed the claim but said it would investigate.
