Some Western observers see Morocco's referendum on constitutional reform today as forging a new path for embattled Arab leaders. It is widely expected to pass, but many protesters boycotted.
Morocco's King Mohammed VI says Moroccans will vote on proposed constitutional changes in a national referendum. The country's reform movement wants to lessen the monarchy's power.
In a rare speech, King Mohammed VI outlined reforms that include a more independent judiciary, a move to direct local elections, and greater human rights.
