UAE: Al-Nahyan succession report

 

Khalifa’s condition ‘stable’ – but Mohammed Bin Zayed is waiting in the wings

Al-Nahyan family tree smallFollowing Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed’s 24 January stroke, attention has turned to succession. Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed (MBZ) is expected to be the UAE’s third president, with his full brother Hazza as the next crown prince. To a large extent, MBZ – and the small, trusted circle around him – have already assumed power.

Drawing on GSN's four decades of experience following the movements of the region's elites, this five-page report collects together analysis of the key personalities and relationships shaping the future of the UAE and an Al-Nahyan family tree, originally published in GSN Issue 963.

It profiles Mohammed Bin Zayed (MBZ) and the influential Bani Fatima - the six sons of Fatima Bint Mubarak Al-Kitbi, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan’s most prominent wife - and analyses MBZ's inner circle.
