One candidate has uploaded short clips of his manifesto on Youtube and has got around 206 views.

Dr Hamid Al Neyadi, Candidate No 647, Abu Dhabi, who shared video links on his online page stating his promises if elected for the FNC, said, “We won’t promise unless we can, we have got lots of problems and we want to solve them; education, health, unemployment, and women.

‘‘We need to raise the living standards of each citizen and attract foreign investments, together hand-in-hand our nation will grow stronger.”

Dr Al Neyadi’s campaign focused on social issues, education and national identity. “We need to pay more attention to education and scientific research, and increase cultural and scientific activities and missions abroad to benefit from other cultures.”

Al Neyadi hopes to improve health services, which will be free of charge for UAE citizens. He has plans to employ more national doctors after they are trained at international specialist hospitals, with increased salary and bonuses. “This will help boost their confidence,” he says.

He calls for more synergy between the government and educational establishments, to enable citizens obtain a job immediately after graduation.

While referring to the environment, he said, “We need to develop methods of monitoring restaurants on the food quality to maintain public health, and to develop high-tech cleanliness methods and focus more on green recycling.”

Regarding community service, he stressed the importance of establishing community development centres, which includes social aspects, sports, culture and entertainment, and work on the integration of public facilities.
