SUBJECT: UAE STARTS A NEW CHAPTER IN HISTORY AND
ELECTS A NEW PRESIDENT


The UAE's Supreme Council of Rulers voted unanimously
to elect Abu Dhabi Ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al
Nahyan President of the UAE on Nov 3. UAE Vice
President and Prime Minister, Dubai Ruler Sheikh
Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chaired the Supreme
Council meeting shortly after Zayed's funeral. The
Supreme Council of Rulers had 30 days within which to
elect a new President from among its ranks. The
timely mandate further demonstrated the desire of the
UAE leadership to maintain stability and a smooth
transition for the country.
