It is the largest ever elections to the parliamentary body in the country’s history where over 130,000 members in the electoral college from all the seven emirates across the UAE will cast their votes to elect their representatives to fill half of the total 40 seats in the FNC.

Polling centres in various emirates are receiving the finishing touches . In Sharjah, the main polling booth has been set up at the Sharjah Expo.

Earlier on Tuesday, His Highness President Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan had called on the citizens to actively participate in the elections.

‘On this important national occasion, I call upon my sons and daughters, the members of electoral bodies, to participate actively in the elections so that we can achieve real participation,’, said the President in his message.

The election is seen as an important milestone in the gradual development of a national programme.

The President’s words that ‘we walk with a clear vision to empower the Federal National Council’ refer to this gradual approach,’ said Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Minister of State for FNC Affairs and Chairman of the National Election Commission (NEC).

Director of Sharjah Television and Radio Dr. Khalid Al Midfa said that the progress of polling and interviews with officials will be telecast.
