A message from the president on the occasion of the successful holding of 2017 national election

On the 7th of March 2017 we stood at another crossroad of our political obligations to carry out the mandate of our National Constitution that every two years the people of the Federated States of Micronesia shall choose members to the FSM Congress.
We did. And did well. And I take this occasion to express my “thank you” to all the people, the citizens of the Nation who went to the polls to cast their votes for the candidates of their choice.
I want also to take this opportunity to salute all the candidates whose desire to serve the Nation must not be taken lightly.
Finally, to those candidates upon whom the people put their greatest hope and trust for good representation...I congratulate them and hope that their success in the election enlarges their hearts and minds to represent all people of the FSM to the best of their abilities.
Let us all look forward to working together for the well being of all our citizens.
Peter M. Christian
President
