This article lists political parties in Morocco.

Morocco has had a multi-party system since independence in 1956 with numerous parties ranging in ideology from the far-left to Islamists. The Moroccan electoral system leads the political parties to seek coalition governments. However, both the post of Prime Minister and other four main government ministers are appointed by the King of Morocco.

Since Morocco considers the disputed territory of Western Sahara to be its annexed Southern Provinces, the political parties are also active in those parts of the territory under Moroccan control.
