Morocco was the first country to obtain the “Partner for Local Democracy” status from the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities at its 36th Session in April 2019. This status offers the Council of Europe’s neighbouring countries an ideal platform for dialogue and institutional contacts with their European counterparts.

The Moroccan delegation comprises 6 representatives and 6 substitutes who may sit alongside Congress members and contribute to the debates during sessions – albeit without the right to vote – and to the work of its Monitoring, Current Affairs and Governance committees.

The status is inspired by the Partner for Democracy Status of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), which Morocco has held since 2011 and which allows it to participate in the Assembly's activities.
