King Mohammed VI declares the Amazigh New Year an official holiday

On Wednesday evening, a communiqué of the Royal Court announced that King Mohammed VI gave the order to make the Amazigh New Year an official holiday in Morocco; similar to the first of Muharram and New Year.

In this context, the same source adds, King Mohammed VI issued his directives to the Prime Minister in order to take the necessary measures to activate this royal decision.

This decision, according to the Royal Court, “is an embodiment of the generous care that King Mohammed VI has been given to Amazigh as a major component of the authentic Moroccan identity rich in its plurality of tributaries, and a common balance for all Moroccans without exception. It also falls within the framework of the constitutional consecration of Amazigh as the official language of the country along with the Arabic language.”
