THE LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES STATE

Auther : Dr. Abdul-Raheem Abdul-Lateef Al-Shaheen

 

         The constitution of the U.A.E. is not based on the separation of power principle paving the way for five different branches of government to practice all authorities.  In other words, a single authority can be exercised by many branches of government due to the lack of an explicit constitutional provision of who is to perform the federal legislative activities.

         Therefore, this study is an attempt to shed light on and assess the reality of federal legislative authority in the U.A.E.  The study is divided into four major sections.  The first one tries to provide a conceptual framework of the legislative authority with an emphasis on such issues as the advantages and disadvantages of the single council system and two-council system.  Section two describes the federal legislative authority in the U.A.E. from a constitutional point of view.

          Topics include the legislative responsibilities of such bodies as the supreme council, the union presidency, the cabinet and the national council; and the issue of the inferiority of the various legislative bodies vis-à-vis the supreme council in policy-making.  In section three, efforts are shifted towards the major impediments and challenges facing the federal legislative authorities in the U.A.E.  The last section provides recommendations and suggests some mechanisms for strengthening the federal legislative authority that centers on many crucial factors including the political leadership belief in the importance of public participation and involvement in political life and the introduction of some constitutional amendments especially in the areas of national council legislative role, separation of power and the redistribution of federal and local jurisdictional authorities.
