Moroccan Prime Minister and Secretary General of the ruling Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD), Abdelilah Benkirane, casts his vote in the parliamentary elections at a polling station in the centre of the capital Rabat on October 7, 2016

Morocco’s King Mohammed VI Monday tasked Abdelilah Benkirane to keep his post as prime minister and form a new government after his Islamist party won last week’s parliamentary elections, the royal court said.

Benkirane’s Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) took 125 seats out of 395 in Friday’s polls, beating its main rival, the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), which had campaigned against the “Islamisation” of Moroccan society.
