In a statement to Khaleej Times, Speaker Abdul Aziz Abdullah Al Ghurair said, “We are determined to maintain closer interaction with the members of the community to probe their problems and cooperate with the government to settle them.

“In the new term, the house will debate wide-ranging issues concerning the community in areas of health, education, labour and others.”

The FNC would pursue its efforts it initiated with different countries of the world to settle the issue of Iran’s occupation of the UAE three islands.

“This issue remains a core part of the FNC’s mission in international, Arab and Islamic forums,” he stressed.

Ahmed bin Shabib Al Dhaheri, First Deputy Speaker, said the members will strive to get deep insight into various issues related to the UAE citizens and expatriate residents alike through the house’s committees which will pay field visits to various emirates to assess needs of the people and work with ministries concerned to meet them as soon as possible.

“Ministers and senior government officials are working hand in hand with the MPs towards one goal — that is to serve public interest of the country that hosts all nationalities,” he said.

Najla Al Tunaiji, another member, said the council will give proper attention to woman’s issues — them being a key and active player in the local community.

The house is confident that the great potentials the UAE women have will qualify them to play an influential role in all forums in view of the unequivocal support they enjoy from the country’s leadership.

For Mohammed Al Za’abi, his mission will be to communicate with different segments of the community to explore their concerns so as to raise them during the FNC debates and work with others to figure them out.

“I think this is the best way the FNC members can follow to find solutions to our problems,” he remarked. Dr Abdul Raheem Shaheen said the FNC would work diligently to avail the time to raise public issues during debates. “I hold the view that the federal government will back and assist us to solve these problems,”he added.
