In January 2014, El Ouardi was physically assaulted while exiting the parliament in Rabat. His assailants were members of the pharmacists union/lobby, and one of them was the brother-in-law of Fouad Ali El Himma, the influential advisor and close-friend of Mohammed VI, in addition to being the cousin of the Party of Authenticity and Modernity female Mayor of Marrakesh. The incident resulted in minor injuries for the minister.
