In a tweet, Sheikh Mohammed said all the council’s members shall represent all the needs of the country and the people.

“One of the advantage secrets of our country is the spirit of a team that combines the legislative and executive powers for the good of our country and the supreme national interest,” he tweeted.

Two public topics adopted by the Social, Labour, Population and Human Resources Affairs Committee were also up for discussion. The first is on regulating volunteer work, while the second is on the policy of the Ministry of Community Development to develop the social security system. This will be approved and submitted to the government for approval for discussion at the FNC, in the presence of relevant ministers.
