The Party of Justice and Development, known as PJD, came to the forefront of Morocco's political scene following the Arab Spring.
Since then, it has led the government following victory in two elections.
But on Wednesday, the PJD lost more than 100 seats, a performance that pushed it to the margin of politics in Morocco.
A party considered close to the palace is now expected to lead the next government.
But will that change anything?
