Lahbib Choubani (Arabic: لحبيب الشوباني‎‎ - born 1963, Boujad) is a Moroccan politician of the Justice and Development Party. Since 3 January 2012, he holds the position of Minister of Relations with the Parliament & Civil Society in Abdelilah Benkirane's cabinet.[1][2][3][4] He also serves as MP for Gheris-Tislit constituency since 2002[1]

Choubani worked as a Physics schoolteacher in the province of Errachidia. In June 2016, Choubani received widespread public criticism from all over Morocco. Newspapers [5] reported that he had bought seven 4X4 Volkswagen Touaregs at a cost of MAD 2,840,000 to facilitate transportation for his council board from their homes to their workplace. He added that the geographical nature of the region requires such expensive vehicles. "Massa Daraa" is one of the poorest regions in Morocco, lacking much necessary infrastructure, according to critics [6][1]
