The bill was adopted by 33 votes in favor, 11 against and 4 abstentions.

The project, which is an important step towards building a strong news agency that plays a central role on the national media landscape, especially after its classification as a strategic national institution, is meant to broaden the scope of the agency and consolidate the principles of professionalism, cultural diversity and openness, while focusing on strengthening the influence of the Kingdom on the international scene.

The text also aims to determine the agency's missions and areas of intervention, as well as the governance tools and administrative and financial mechanisms in order to enable MAP to meet the expectations of its partners, achieve the objectives assigned to it and meet the challenges of modernization, development and leadership at the national and international levels.

This project also aims to promote the governance of the agency as a strategic institution, as it divides the prerogatives to promote its governance in an inclusive participatory approach and in line with the orientations to reform and promote communication as a strategic sector that plays a key role in the country's economic development.
