MOVING THE MARIANAS FORWARD,
What we see for our Commonwealth, we hope for all people: individual freedom in the framework of a just society, political freedom in the framework of meaningful participation by all citizens. Bound by the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, aware that a party must be responsive to be worthy of responsibility, we pledge ourselves to open, honest endeavor and to the conduct of public affairs in a manner worthy of a society of free people.
About Our District
The Northern Mariana Islands, which is part of Micronesia, comprises the former Mariana Islands District of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. It consists of three main islands—Saipan, Tinian, and Rota—and several small islands and atolls.
Citizens of the CNMI elect a governor and lieutenant governor, a 20-member House of Representatives, a 9-member Senate, and a non-voting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives.
