1989 Micronesian parliamentary election

Parliamentary elections were held in the Federated States of Micronesia on 7 March 1989 alongside a referendum on electing a Constitutional Convention.[1][2] All candidates for seats in Congress ran as independents. The referendum was held in compliance with article 2, section 9 of the constitution, which specified that there must be a referendum on convening a Constitutional Convention at least every ten years.[2] It was approved by 71% of voters, and the Constitutional Convention election was subsequently held in 1990.[2]



Shall there be a convention to revise or amend the Constitution?[2]
