Born in one emirate, passport from another :: Gulf News

The National Elections Committee will study the issue of Electoral College members who are born in one emirate but hold passports issued by another emirate, a senior official has said.
. . .
Members of the Ras Al Khaimah Electoral College had raised this issue at the seminar as many of them are born in Ras Al Khaimah and work in other emirates, where they have been issued passports.

Their main query was: "Where should a person be listed if he was born in Ras Al Khaimah and given a passport from another emirate?"

It's always interesting to me that passports are issued by individual emirates.

Maybe the larger issue is whether Electoral College members should be elected from the emirate where they reside or the tribe from which they are from.
