His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, yesterday issued law by decree No. 2 of 2003, establishing the Dubai Executive Council. The law took effect on February 24. Under the law, the Executive Council consists of a chairman, deputy chairman, chairmen or directors of Dubai's departments as the circumstances require. Other members may also be appointed.

The law was accompanied by the following statement made by Sheikh Maktoum:

"In order to achieve our goals of developing our country and safeguarding its independence and continuing along the road to advancement and confirming our belief in shared responsibility between the leadership and the people to build a stable and prosperous society, we have decided to set up an executive council for Dubai to help us perform our duties and manage our local affairs.

"In setting up the council, we were inspired by the constitution and our keen interest in strengthening our federation. We understand that our decision to establish this council brings about responsibilities and challenges, but we have no doubt that we will be united in our endeavour to achieve the goal behind this blessed move. We pray to Almighty Allah to grant us success." (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
