President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has call upon members of electoral colleges for broad and active participation in the elections to the Federal National Council so that the real participation can be achieved.

Addressing the nation ahead of the second Federal National Elections on 24 September 2011, the President said :'Citizen is the key element in the development and progress of the country, and should be a partner in shaping the future of the nation and shaping its policy so that our citizens will enjoy a radiant future.

'We have to walk with a clear vision to empower the Federal National Council. And the upcoming elections on September 24 is the perfect opportunity to make a major step towards this goal, which will be achieved, God willing, with your virtuous efforts.

Since the establishment of the Federal National Council in 1972, Sheikh Khalifa indicated, it worked to embody the proper relationship between the government and the people in the United Arab Emirates.

'It continues to be the strong platform for political participation and positive impact on the decision-making process in the country, and hence inspired our great interest in enabling it and activating its role so that it will become the authority that supports and guides of the country's executive authority.

'Not a single phase along the march of building the country was devoid of the existence of consultative councils surrounding the country's leadership as they strongly believed in the importance of people's participation.

'Since the year 2006 we started a new experience for the election of half the members of the Council with the faith that political participation is an integral part of the progress of the country and the comprehensive development we live,' the President added.

Sheikh Khalifa expressed the UAE's determination to cross over to a new phase of development and achievement and to uphold and consolidate its position among the world countries. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
