UOIF Wants To Avoid "Second-Fiddle" Status On French Council


The Union of French Islamic Organisations (UOIF) has reacted to its second-place finish in recent French Council elections by calling for changes in the Council presidency. According to a Reuters report:

A post-election statement by the Union of French Islamic Organisations (UOIF), which scored 30.2 percent, hinted there still could be tough times ahead for the CFCM. The UOIF, which is close to the Muslim Brotherhood, wants a rotating council presidency to avoid playing the perennial second fiddle to Kbibech’s larger RMF group. It called for a reform “to let the main points of view take responsibility and to protect the CFCM from foreign interference.” The “foreign interference” reference was a dig against the strong support the RMF got from Rabat.

Results from the election were discussed in a post from yesterday.
