247African: Morocco To Abandon Summer-Time Clock Change
Morocco has decided to keep its clocks on summer time all year round, abandoning winter time which would have come into effect this weekend, Map, the country’s official news agency, reports.
So on Sunday the North African nation’s time will remain at GMT+1, meaning it will stay lighter in the evening rather than the morning.
The decision was taken after an evaluation study, which found that changing the time had caused confusion, the news site Le 360 said.
Mohammed Ben Abdelkader, the administrative reform minister, was quoted as saying it would also reduce electricity consumption.
