Abu Dhabi Executive Council is the local executive authority of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. It assists the Ruler to carry out his duties and powers. The Council holds meetings periodically in Abu Dhabi to discuss issues and memos referred to it by Abu Dhabi’s departments and governmental authorities, concerning the progress of government-sponsored projects, the development of services and the improvement of governmental performance in Abu Dhabi.


In 1971, a Council of Ministers was formed in the Abu Dhabi Emirate by virtue of the provisions of Law No. (1) to reorganise the government apparatus. But in 1974, the said law was superseded and substituted with Law No. (1), which organised the government apparatus, renaming the "Council of Ministers" as the "Abu Dhabi Executive Council." The Executive Council is chaired by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. Its membership is formed by chairmen of the local government departments, some local authorities and other members appointed by the Ruler.
