From the Paper:

"Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was named Vice President and assumed the position of Prime Minister in January 2006. Their programs included the encouragement of public participation in the government, especially by introducing direct elections to the Federal National Council, the national government . Previously, the National Assembly was formed by the appointment of its 40 members by the emirate rulers and acted as a consultative body overall. At present, half of the members will be voted in office, with only the remainder 20 being actually named into the Council by the rulers."
