  • Bu khatir: Participation in elections an honour for Emirati woman
Sharjah 24: The Sharjah candidate for the Federal National Council 2019 elections, Dr. Alia Abdul Rahman Bu khatir, confirmed that the participation in the electoral process is an honour and pride for every Emirati woman.
Dr. Bu khatir thanked President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for giving women the opportunity to participate in the FNC elections and for allocating 50% of the seats to them.

In an exclusive statement to “Sharjah 24”, Dr. Bu Khatir said that she submitted her papers for nomination to the Sharjah Elections Committee today. She hailed easy procedures of the registration process, which demonstrate committee members’ excellence and professionalism.

She added that empowering women is not something new in the UAE; it has existed since the time of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. But, the remarkable thing about 2019 elections is the allocation of 50 percent of the FNC seats for women, a move that is an honour for every Emirati woman.
