Mohammed bin Zayed strengthens his grip on governance by promoting his children

285

The crown prince of Abu Dhabi, the de facto ruler of the UAE, has consolidated his grip on power in the country by promoting two of his sons and pushing them to high-level leadership positions to perpetuate his dictatorial approach.

Bin Zayed made changes in the structure of the executive branch of Abu Dhabi, including the promotion of two of his sons to leadership positions in an approach that observers say reflects the policy of a single government in the country.

Khalid bin Mohammed bin Zayed, a member of the executive council of the emirate, was appointed head of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, replacing Ahmed Mubarak Al Mazrouei.

Khalid bin Mohammed bin Zayed holds several official positions, most notably the Deputy National Security Adviser and the head of the State Security Service, who are prepared for future senior leadership.

It seems that Mohammed bin Zayed is waiting for his son Khalid to prove himself and began to train him, as he appointed him a general in record time after studying in Sandhurst, British, began his career in the national security of the country and became president in February 2016.

According to the emirate’s laws, the Abu Dhabi Executive Office is responsible for supporting the emirate’s executive council, which is chaired by its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, who sets the general policy of the emirate and oversees its implementation.

The new decrees included appointing a member of the Executive Council, Sheikh Diab bin Mohammed bin Zayed, as head of the Crown Prince’s Court.

In addition, a decree was issued to create the position of Chairman of the Office of the President of the Executive Council, and the appointment of Al Mazrouei after he was the head of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed holds several positions in the leadership of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the UAE in general, both politically and militarily. He is the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of Mubadala Investment Company, an investment arm of the Government of Abu Dhabi.

Mohammed bin Zayed reinforced his rule of the UAE in a short time in the concentration of power structures and decision-making in the hands of his five brothers:

  1. Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs
  2. Hazza bin Zayed, Former national security adviser.
  3. The current national security advisor, Tahnoun bin Zayed.
  4. Deputy Prime Minister and holder of the family’s financial portfolio, Mansour bin Zayed.
  5. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Saif bin Zayed.

The Emiratis angrily point out that bin Zayed leads the state according to a personal and subjective vision after he rebelled and froze the constitution and other national constitutional institutions and weakened the rest of the authorities and emptied the rest of the components.

As a result, the political and social situation in the UAE has become unprecedentedly fragile along with a marked economic stalemate that has been increasing for nearly two years.

Bin Zayed is among the richest in the world with a fortune of $ 1.3 trillion, more than some countries have.

The net worth of the Al Nahyan family in the UAE is estimated at $ 150 billion. Bin Zayed has effectively run the UAE for years following the illness of his brother Khalifa bin Zayed.

The family controls the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, the world’s second-largest wealth fund, which has assets of about $773 billion and controls 6% of the world’s oil.

Since coming to power, the man has the trust of the United States of America and has close relations with Russia and Israel.

He is also a major client of Lockheed Martin, the largest military industry in the world.
