Islamists claim election advantage in Morocco

A moderate Islamist party claimed victory in Morocco's first parliamentary elections since constitutional reforms this summer.

The Justice and Development Party (PJD) won 107 of the 395 seats, Interior Minister Taib Cherkaoui said Sunday.

The next biggest winner was the Istiqlal Party, also known as the Independence Party, with 60 seats, the Interior Ministry's website reported.

The number of parties involved in Morocco's multi-party system means it was unlikely a single party would win a majority of the seats, so a coalition government would have to be formed.
