For his part, the SG of the PAM, Abdellatif Ouahbi, in his orientation speech, gave pride of place to the actions of the government, in particular that of the Pamist ministers, and attacked the opposition which he qualified of “weak” and “pale”. Mr. Ouahbi thus pointed out that the components of the government majority do not adopt “a discourse of crisis or lamentation” in the face of the context in which the national economy is rocking, due to the financial repercussions of the soaring prices of raw materials. first, following the war between Russia and Ukraine. A war that comes just after the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact that we know on the national economy and the state budget.

As for the opposition, the SG of the PAM affirms that this government, “of major social transformations”, is the victim of an opposition, either weak and pale, or composed of bad voices which exploit social networks to convey negative speeches. having no political, reflective or ideological reference. “Strong democratic governments need a strong opposition to enlighten public opinion through dialogue and debate, so that it can measure the scope of achievements and programs,” he said.
The slingers have a hard tooth against Ouahbi

Whoever has a point of view, let them come forward like I did from 2011 to 2021. Let them come out of anonymity to see what their position in the party and their qualifications are, and then we can discuss “.
