The Secretariat of the UAE Cabinet has registered 4,700 applications from ambitious Emirati youths vying for the Youth Minister position.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE, and the Ruler of Dubai, broadcasted the call on the X platform (previously Twitter), urging young citizens to step forward and epitomize their generation.
In his commitment to invigorate the nation’s cabinet with youthful vigour, the esteemed Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is keen on bringing on board a standout young individual—man or woman—to echo the youth’s perspectives and to address pivotal concerns that resonate with them.
He articulated his vision for this role, emphasizing profound UAE understanding, courage in national representation, and a fiery devotion to homeland service. Potential candidates were invited to present their credentials to the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs via their official email.
Highlighting the UAE’s trailblazing steps, it’s worth mentioning that 2016, the nation made headlines by inducting the globe’s youngest minister. Shamma bint Sohail Faris Al Mazrui ascended to the Minister of State for Youth Affairs post at age 22, chosen from a diverse and talented group nominated by nationwide universities.
