United States of America today congratulated the Moroccan people on the successful completion of Friday’s parliamentary elections where millions of Moroccans went to the polls to elect their new political leaders.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton today stressed working with King Mohammed VI, the new parliament and civil society can implement the amended constitution as a step toward fulfilling the aspirations and rights of all Moroccans.

She highlighted that the hard work of building democracy does not end when the votes are tallied and the winners announced.

She said political leaders will be judged not only by what they say, but what they do.

“The United States stands ready to work with the new parliament and the people of Morocco to strengthen the rule of law, raise human rights standards, promote transparent and accountable governance, and work toward sustained, democratic reform.” -Ms. Clinton
