His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, is the only Middle East political leader who has been selected for this year’s edition of Time 100, the magazine’s annual list of the most influential people in the world.

Pope Francis, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are some of the other leaders in the club.

The other cover stars also included Taylor Swift, TV journalist Gayle King, soccer star Mohamed Salah, actors Sandra Oh and Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson was praised for establishing a positive work environment, while Oh is cited for her creative life.

Musician Shawn Mendes wrote Swift “makes anyone older feel young again.”

The issue is comprised of short tributes written by fellow global luminaries throughout all industries.
