Writing about Moroccan political parties is mainly an endeavor to delve into the realm of power relations, in which matters of ideology, hegemony and consent are always in a perpetual redefinition, following national and international circumstances. Throughout the political history of Morocco, different political actors have engaged with politics in its various manifestations and inflicted unsettled reactions for the monarchical institution. The interplay between the monarchy and the political parties was often over matters of decision-making and ascendency, and most of the time results in incoherent and inconsistent compromises. Thus, the democratic façade that the regime tries hard to sell to the world hides a deep uneasiness with the growing demands for democratization and constitutionalizing the use of power. Seeking power and preserving it is probably the driving force that keeps the political landscape in Morocco far from having a full-fledged understanding, unless in terms of oscillation between authoritarianism and democratization.
