Morocco Holds First Vote

Moroccans are heading to the polls Friday to vote for the first time since protesters pushed for greater democracy last February. More than 300 international observers and 3,500 Moroccan observers will monitor the vote. Parliament has more power under Morocco's new Constitution, and the prime minister is elected rather than royally appointed. The moderate Islamist Justice and Development party is expected to do well in the election.
