The Kingdom of Morocco is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament and a head of government selected from the party that wins the election. Morocco’s population reached 33,304,000 in 2014, according to the national statistical agency (HCP), with the youth constituting a large part of that figure (53% of the population is under the age of 30). The national GDP was estimated at $100.6 billion in 2015, making Morocco the fifth largest economy in Africa. Morocco is currently making the transition to a multiparty governance system, a process involving socio-economic and environmental reforms and more active engagement with the public on matters of public policy.
