The exceptional retirement pension of former Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane has not finished talking about her. This time, it is the turn of the former MP of PJD, Souad Chikhi, to come out of his silence.
“All of a sudden, all eyes are turning to Benkirane and the exceptional pension becomes the source of all the problems in Morocco,” she wrote in a Facebook post.
And to add that everything has been “carefully calculated” to undermine the image of the PJD, “whose capital is credibility, clarity and honesty.”
Chikhi also said that the purpose of these “malicious campaigns” is to tarnish the image of the party of the lamp before the citizens and to attack its symbols, starting with Benkirane before passing to the remains of the dirigenats, at their head Saad-Eddine El Othmani.
Recall that the former secretary general of the PJD had tapped his political opponents, who had criticized the fact that an exceptional retirement pension was granted to him and reached 90,000 dirhams.
In this regard, Benkirane had confided that it was King Mohammed VI who “saved” him. The Sovereign ordered that Benkirane’s situation be regulated and that he be entitled to an exceptional retirement after learning that he no longer had any source of income. “I still do not understand the reasons for this relentless media. Several former ministers like Abdellah Ibrahim and Abderrahman El Youssoufi have benefited from this kind of retirement, but no one has spoken,” he added.
