posted on 16/02/2011: 1618 views



President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued the federal decree number 2 of year 2011, on amendment of some provisions of the UAE President's decree number 3 of year 2006, on specifying a method to select representatives of emirates in the FNC.

The move follows the issuance of the Supreme Federal Council of resolution number 1 of year 2011, on the amendment of some provisions of the Supreme Federal Council's resolution number 4 of year 2006, on specifying a method to select the representatives of emirates in the Federal National Council.

These decisions come to fulfil the programme of Sheikh Khalifa on revamping the role of FNC in the backdrop of successful first elections in 2006. They also stress keenness of the leadership on empowerment of the FNC to play its leading role in support of the executive authority.

The article one of the Supreme Federal Council calls for substitution of item one of the first article of the Supreme Federal Council number 4 of year with the following: half of the members will be elected by the electoral college, constituting 300 representatives, besides representatives of each emirate.

The first article of the UAE President decree number 2 of year 2011 calls for setting up the national committee for elections to be chaired by State Minister for the Federal National Council Affairs, with membership of: Minister of Justice, Minister of Education, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Secretary General of the Presidential Affairs, Representative from the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Federal National Council Affairs, besides three public figures to be named by the committee chairman.

The resolution of the UAE President on selection of the representatives of emirates in the FNC has specified the functions of the national elections committee as follows: It draws the general framework of the electoral process, general supervision of the electoral process, besides contribution to efforts of the electoral awareness, setting of the guide rulers for the elections, specification of the election centres in each emirate, endorsement of the procedural regulations in the light of the electoral legal framework, issuance of rules regulating the electoral colleges to endorse them. The decision will also set a date for holding of the elections. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
