UAE appoints Mohammed bin Zayed as new leader after half-brother’s death


The United Arab Emirates has appointed Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan as its new president after the death of his half-brother, elevating the crown prince of Abu Dhabi after nearly a decade as the de facto ruler of the US partner.

The change in leadership is likely to have few short-term political or economic implications for the UAE, as Sheikh Mohammed led the country’s domestic and foreign policy for years, alongside a cadre of brothers powerful and other leaders of the federation.
