Title : Le pouvoir législatif au Maroc entre rationalisation et auto rationalisation parlementaire
Country : Maroc
Authors : Assma Ahmyiane
: 10.9790/0837-2402010112     logo

Abstract: La constitution marocaine de juillet 2011 apporte des avancées qui ont pour objet de renforcer relativement la compétence législative du parlement et en particulier de la chambre des représentants. Néanmoins, le retour sur ces avancées n'est pas, seulement, le fait du maintien des normes permettant au Roi et au gouvernement de contrôler le processus législatif et de la pratique législative qui incline la balance vers l'Exécutif mais elle est aussi l'oeuvre des députés qui, par leur désintérêt aux travaux de la chambre, se sont montrés moins audacieux pour conquérir le pouvoir législatif. L'objectif de cet article est d'expliquer comment et pourquoi le pouvoir législatif oscille entre rationalisation et auto- rationalisation parlementaire..

Abstract: Babu English is the verbose, unidiomatic and funny variety of Indian English. The phrase has its origin in the Raj period and was originally used by the English colonizer to refer to the English (language) used by Indian Babus. This paper studiesselect specimens from three 19th century collections ofBabu English - miscellaneous specimens written by Indians in English. These were compiled by their English masters for amusement, linguistic studies etc. I have used Homi.
