H.E Abdulrahman Bin Mohamed Al Owais

Minister of State for Federal National Council Affairs

It was in 2005, at the 34th National Day to be exact, when by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, announced the flagship “Political Empowerment Programme” geared towards the people and institutions of the UAE. Ever since, the Emirates has set out on an ambitious path of political empowerment and development, setting an important precedent and creating a one-of-a-kind parliamentary experience that caters to the unique aspects of its community and to the needs and demands of its people.

Building on the solid relationship its leadership has forged with the people, the UAE is embarking on a new phase of political development, eyeing both balanced advancement and active, gradual political participation. We are building on our experiences and successes, taking measures that propel us towards new horizons, all in the pursuit of a prosperous and progressive society, where the public interest and people’s happiness come first.

To that end, the Ministry of State for Federal National Council Affairs spearheads the effort to coordinate between the Government and the Federal National Council and promote synergy and complementarity between the executive and legislative authorities. This, in turn, galvanises future-focused initiatives and projects across all sectors, which resonate with the very ethos of the “Government of the Future”, formed by our wise leaders to transform the UAE into a role model for excellence in the world and a beacon for the future industry.

The Ministry of State for FNC Affairs, for its part, wholeheartedly abides by the UAE leadership’s directive to embed innovation into the very fabric of our culture and day-to-day lives. This is evident in the bold initiatives we have launched to promote political awareness and participation among the electorate.

Over the past decade, the Ministry has set an example of excellence and leadership with its performance and achievements. It will continue on this path of success, launching one successful initiative after the other to further solidify the relationship between the legislative and executive branches of government, and to ensure nationwide sustainable development.
