National Elections Committee announces opening of candidacy for FNC 2023 elections tomorrow


The National Elections Committee (NEC) announced that potential candidates for the Federal National Council (FNC) 2023 elections could register from 15th to 18th August, 2023.

The committee said that those on the electoral lists could apply for candidacy by completing the form on the link, tarashah.uaenec.ae, which is available on the committee's website and the smart application "National Election Committee - uaenec," that can be found on Apple Store and Google Play.

Applicants must ensure that they complete the registration process with the UAE Pass digital identity before proceeding with their candidacy registration. If their registration is not possible through the website or the smart application, candidates can apply in person or through an authorised representative with a special power of attorney at their emirate’s electoral committee, which will list their names in the electoral list.

Each emirate's committee will receive candidacy forms after verifying the applicant's compliance with the required legal conditions. The forms will then be submitted to the NEC through the Elections Management Committee for approval.

The NEC announced that candidacy registration will be open on its website and smart application from 15th August at 8:00, and will continue until 18th August at 12:00 UAE time. Candidate registration centres will also receive candidacy applications on 15th, 16th, 17th August from 8:00 to 15:00.

The NEC will set up nine registration centres across the UAE where potential candidates can put their names forward.

The NEC affirmed the importance of fully complying with the executive instructions to ensure the highest levels of integrity and transparency in the electoral process.

According to the timetable for the FNC elections 2023, the preliminary list of candidates will be announced on Friday, 25th August, 2023, and the final list will be announced on Saturday, 2nd September, 2023.
