Democratic means of government, unlike hereditary form of leadership ensure that each and every member of the UAE has equal chances to access the leadership position. This will have the power and chance to infuse the UAE with the chance to realise skilled leadership. At the same time, the institution of democratic means of government in the UAE will help the confederacy extirpate totally, impunity, high handedness, execution of objectives that are pivoted on attenuated perspectives and knowledge, failure to bring in organisational accountability or and transparency, among others.
To this effect, the responsibility to ensure that each and every leader in the UAE assembly is elected and appointed, based on merits, and that each ands every leader who holds the UAE office remain accountable is an issue that remains squarely on the UAE top organs. This means that the UAE must come up with measures to ensure that the concept of checks and balance, transparency, regular elections and the liberalisation of UAE information become a reality.
In almost the same wavelength, it is deeply needful of the UAE to emancipate itself from the thick cord of ethnic sense that surrounds it. At the same time, for the UAE to realise growth, sustainability and expansion, that the UAE has to sever the automatic association of its existence and operations from Islam is a prerequisite. By so doing, the UAE will have removed the thick cloud of suspicion over terrorist allegations from its way. This feat for the UAE portends the making of its leadership transparent.
At the same time, it is a necessity that the UAE takes to incorporate into its team, individuals from other religions and walks of life. The election or the appointment of a leader or an officer must be seen to be based on merits and not on nepotism and/ or religious affiliations. As far as the establishment of a cordial relation and proper corporate image is concerned, it is inevitable that the UAE takes to publish its statements of accounts annually to the general public. This action is bound to benefit the UAE in a manner that is twofold.
In the first case, this publication of statements of accounts to the public will help allay of suspicion of the UAE’s involvement over heinous activities, and thus, redeeming the corporate image of the same. On the other hand, the same practice is seen by leaders in the professional areas and the corporate world as being instrumental in curving out a niche for the UAE at the expense of its peers. This is because, there is no the organization in the Arabian Peninsula that carries out this practice, UAE’s competitors also falling within this rubric.
At the same time, it is necessary that the UAE reconsiders its past relations in respect to the present relations. This is because, it has become clear that the UAE confederation is still suffering hangovers over the past relations that it has had within itself. Although the issue of making reparations for the UAE may not be mandatory, yet, it remains necessary that the case of Abu Dhabi be visited anew. In this case, if Abu Dhabi deems the issue of making reparations a necessity for the healing of the past relationship, then it becomes apparent that the rest of the six UAE member states have to make it good.
CONCLUSION. For the UAE to realise sustainability, growth, profitability and dynamism, it is incumbent that its leaders and the entire rank and file take to redefine matters that are fundamental to the UAE. Some of the measures that the UAE must ratify may entail carrying out an overhaul on leadership structures and style, and the strengthening of the internal cohesion among the seven UAE member states. At the same time, it is needed that the UAE carry out the reviewing of its policies and constitution so that feasible measures can be realised within the external and internal environment of the UAE.
For instance, it is an opportune time, the UAE showed respect for and promoted the cause of international trade by adopting the observation of patenting rights. Word Count: 11,193 (equivalent to 40. 7 pages).
