Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan was elected as president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday a day after the death of its former leader.
Sheikh Mohamed was elected by the Federal Supreme Council, the state-run WAM news agency said.
The rulers of the United Arab Emirates’ seven sheikhdoms made the decision at a meeting. It comes after Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan died on Friday at age 73.
WAM described the vote as unanimous among the rulers of the country’s sheikhdoms, which also Dubai.
“We congratulate him and we pledge allegiance to him, and our people pledge allegiance to him,” Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said on Twitter after the vote. “The whole country is led by him to take it on the paths of glory and honour, God willing.”
