A moderate Islamist party appeared Saturday to have won parliamentary elections in Morocco, the second time in weeks that voters in the region have chosen Islamists in elections brought on by the Arab Spring.

But the government will be Morocco’s first popularly elected one, with the power to appoint ministers and dissolve Parliament. Moderate Islamist Party Winning Morocco Election – NYTimes.com.
