Governance

A majority of Moroccans applaud the government’s performance in managing the response to COVID-19 pandemic, including keeping the public informed, a new Afrobarometer survey shows.

While half of citizens say they received government assistance during the pandemic, a similar proportion believe the assistance was not distributed fairly.

Moreover, a majority of citizens believe that at least some relief resources were lost to corruption.
