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.
