Hamid Chabat (Arabic: حميد شباط‎ – born 17 August 1953, Taza Province)[1] is a Moroccan politician and the current Secretary-General of the Istiqlal Party. Hamid Chabat has been the mayor of Fes since October 2003 and was elected in 23 September 2003 to lead his party, defeating rival Abdelouahed El Fassi, a relative of former incumbent Abbas El Fassi and grandson of Allal El Fassi.[2][3] Before holding office, Chabat forged a name for himself in his party's trade union (General Union of Moroccan Workers aka UGTM).[2]
