DUBAI // Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, wants to find an Emirati to represent young people on the federal cabinet.
In a statement via Twitter, Sheikh Mohammed wants universities in the UAE to nominate three men and three women, under the age of 25, who have graduated within the past two years or are in their final year, for the position.
Of all those nominated throughout the UAE, one will be selected as a minister to represent the “issues and ambitions” of Emirati youth in cabinet, he said.
The Dubai Ruler spoke of the importance of young people who make up “nearly half of our Arab societies” and are the key to society’s success or failure.
“We are a young country that was built by young people and has reached elevated global standing thanks to them,” he said. “They are the secret for its power and speed. They are the treasure that we keep for the future.”
