Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed elected as UAE president

DUBAI: Rulers in the United Arab Emirates announced Saturday that they all appointed Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan as the president of this hereditarily ruled country on the Arabian Peninsula.
The state-run WAM news firm said the rulers of the nation’s seven sheikhdoms made the decision at a meeting kept in Al Mushrif Palace in Abu Dhabi.
It comes after the late President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan passed away Friday. The transition of power marks only the 3rd time this U.S.-allied country of 7 sheikhdoms has actually chosen a president since becoming an independent nation in 1971.
The last, which saw Sheikh Khalifa take over for both his and Sheikh Mohammed’s father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, came a month after his death in 2004. The speed of Saturday’s statement, simply a day later, appeared designed to reveal unity and reassure the world of the stability of this essential oil-and-gas producing country that hosts Western military forces.
WAM described the vote as consentaneous among the rulers of the nation’s sheikhdoms, which also consists of the skyscraper-studded city of Dubai.
“We praise him, and we pledge loyalty to him, and our individuals pledge obligation to him,” Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said on Twitter after the vote. “The entire nation is led by him to take it on the courses of glory and honor, God prepared.”
The UAE as a whole is observing a three-day mourning duration which will see companies shut across the nation and efficiencies halted in Sheikh Khalifa’s honor. Electronic billboards all revealed the late sheikh’s image in Dubai on Friday night as flags flew at half-staff.
