Fujairah, May 4, 2019 – The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) – Fujairah hosted an awareness workshop organised by the Ministry of State for Federal National Council Affairs (MFNCA) and the Ministry of Education to promote the culture of political participation and the upcoming FNC elections.
With more than 30 high-school students taking part, the workshop was led by Dr Ahmed Al Khuzaimi from the Ministry of Interior, and forms part of the Ministry’s efforts and initiatives to promote the culture of political participation among all segments of the community, urging them to take part in the upcoming fourth FNC elections.
At the beginning of the lecture, Dr Al Khuzaimi underlined the UAE leadership’s focus on the youth, reflecting its unwavering faith in their role in preserving the country’s national and civilisational achievements and maintaining the UAE’s momentum, excellence, and leadership to establish it as the best country in the world across all sectors.
“The UAE is progressing steadily along its mission to craft a pioneering parliamentary experience that follows a gradual approach that caters to the singularities of Emirati society,” he said. “This is part of the effort to implement the Political Empowerment Programme, launched by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, to serve as a national framework designed around the requirements of comprehensive sustainable development across all sectors, and that seeks to engage Emirati nationals in the effort to propel the UAE to the fore of all national indexes.”
“The FNC is a leader in terms of empowering citizens, enhancing their role in sustainable development, and helping them realise their ambitions by discussing the issues that matter most to them,” Dr Al Khuzaimi noted. “The Council offers an exemplary approach for fostering effective partnerships between the executive and legislative branches of government, and for driving comprehensive development and building a modern state.”
“We are on the cusp of yet another important national event with the FNC elections, which compels us all to actively participate in the polls to ensure their success and excellence, and to express our gratitude to our country and loyalty to our national identity. This is our opportunity to continue with the Council’s achievements and build a better future for our current and upcoming generations,” he concluded.
This lecture is part of a series of activities organised by the Ministry of State for Federal National Council Affairs to promote political awareness and enhance communication with all segments of society. It also serves to achieve the Ministry’s vision and strategic objectives to build long-term national partnerships.
