The first hybrid election for the UAE’s Federal National Council (FNC) has been a great success and reflects the digital transformation movement in the country, a senior official said.

There was remote voting from inside and outside the country. Electronic voting was carried out in 24 electoral centers throughout the country. There was a large participation of members of the electoral colleges to cast their votes.

Dr. Mohammed Hamad Al Kuwaiti, Chairman of the UAE Cyber ​​Security Council, noted that the entire process went smoothly.

“It is a great day. It is an important system that we are currently using, which coincides with our digital transformation. This transformation shows the technologies, the awareness and reflects where we are today as a country,” Al Kuwaiti told Khaleej Times.

He noted that the use of online voting leads to better conduct of the process.

“This is the first hybrid election. We used to do ‘e-voting’ (electoral voting). Nowadays we also use ‘i-voting’, that is, the use of the Internet. These are the two voting systems. One is a system where you can use your application from afar and the other is through the kiosk available here (at the voting centers).”

Al Kuwaiti stressed that the systems in place have guaranteed the best standards for the electoral process.

“We have provided full end-to-end encryption on many of those aspects with great partners, the third party. We have used standardized best practices and compliance with international laws in that perspective. We also use our information guarantees and best information standards.
