PSU Detractors Boycott Far-Left Party’s Fifth Congress

A few days before their fifth congress, the activists of the Unified Socialist Party (PSU, opposition) appear to be showing signs of division.

Gathered in a current, that of “Democratic Change”, detractors of Nabila Mounib, the party’s general secretary, announced that they wanted to boycott this meeting, scheduled for Rabat from October 20 to 22, 2023.

These activists explain their decision by “dysfunctions” and “legal oversteps” which characterized the preparation of this fifth congress.

Al Ahdath Al Maghribia of this Tuesday, October 17, 2023 explains that the leaders of “democratic change”, who met on October 14 and 15, issued a press release following this meeting. The document, which lists their main observations, criticizes the method of “preparing this congress”, as well as the “dysfunctions” and “legal excesses” noted regarding its organization.

In this press release, these leaders recall that their sensitivity to the PSU, the “Democratic Change” movement had already withdrawn, in May 2023, from the preparatory commission for the fifth congress, by “freezing [its] membership within this body and by publishing a press release to denounce preparation according to a dominating mentality and approach, in violation of internal regulations which recognize equality between members of the Party.

According to members of this current, the preparatory commission for this congress “has transformed itself into a work cell reporting to the leadership current”, the one led by the general secretary of the PSU, Nabila Mounib.

The leaders of “Democratic Change” accuse Nabila Mounib of having “instrumentalized” this commission, to “impose its ideological and political orientations”.

A situation that this current, which is in the minority in the PSU, wants to denounce: according to the members of “Democratic Change”, the members of the preparatory commission for the fifth congress of the PSU must be “neutral” and must also “represent all members of the party ”, without “working for one service to the detriment of another”.
