The United Arab Emirates on Wednesday appointed women to the newly created posts of state ministers for happiness and tolerance, and a 22-year-old female for youth affairs.
Prime minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum named eight women as he revealed his latest cabinet line-up of 29 ministers in a series of tweets.
Ohoud al-Roumi, who serves as director of the council of ministers’ office, was appointed ‘minister of state for happiness’. She will also keep her former post.
‘Happiness is not just a wish in our country. There will be plans, projects, programmes and indices. It will be part of the job of all ministries,’ tweeted Sheikh Mohammed, who is also the ruler of Dubai.
The new post ‘will align and drive government policy to create social good and satisfaction,’ he said earlier.
