The flames of prices continue to burn the pockets of Moroccans and subdue the purchasing power of citizens, with successive increases affecting all foodstuffs, and extended to all commodities at very high rates under a government that activists describe as sleepy, and lacking the sense of patriotism to lose the daily suffering of citizens with markets that have become frightening with their inflamed prices.
The series of increases has become very disturbing, and does not satisfy Moroccan families who have collapsed in the face of the large number of increases imposed on them by ruthless merchants, who are not subject to periodic monitoring of prices, which gave many of them the opportunity to freely increase prices in an insane manner.
Lubna Al-Saghir, a deputy from the Progress and Socialism Party, addressed the issue of the increases in the parliamentary session of January 23rd, as she stressed in her speech that the government is obliged to intervene to put an end to the freedom of prices that drained the pockets of Moroccans and ended the power of the middle class in society.
She said that free competition imposes interference and monitoring of the markets, so it is not reasonable that the same product is sold for 15 dirhams, some sell it for 16, and another for 18, and she went on to say that Moroccans are forced to advance, in order to keep up with the burning conditions, and she ended her intervention, “You enter a ghetto, they enter a ghetto, and may God help you.”
On a daily basis, prices and their crazy rise surprise citizens in all regions of the Kingdom, in light of the terrible silence of the government, which justifies the fluctuations of international markets until it has become a fashion, and has become a slogan for competition and enrichment at the expense of the dervishes, the poor, and those with limited and middle incomes.--
One of the communicative astronauts says in this context, “The increase has become fashionable in light of a sleepy government that does not exist at all. There is no monitoring, no inspection committees, and they do not have a sense of citizenship at all.”-
An activist of the Akhannouch government era, which was characterized by outrageous high prices, noted in his post, “The prices were doubled during the Akhannouch government era, so whoever had a price of 10 became 20, and whoever was 50 became 100 under the pretext of freedom of prices, which turned into price hell in the absence of any monitoring by the state.” .
And the increases in the national markets are igniting in a rocket manner without control or accountability, which has shaken the purchasing power of many Moroccan families whose daily living costs have eluded them in light of the outrageous high price wave that affected everything, which is matched by a terrible silence from the government headed by a businessman who seems to be His wealth multiplied in the midst of this crisis that afflicted Moroccans.
