Delays in some judicial appointments and underfunding of the court system hampered the judiciary's ability to function efficiently. Both amendments failed to obtain two-third of the votes in at least three states as required by the national constitution. The Constitution establishes three levels of government: 1 the national; 2 the state; and 3 the municipal.

Indiginous dances are still very much alive in the form of stick art and the moonlight dance, which is a pleasure to watch. Shortages or unavailability of court personnel and services occasionally hampered the right to a speedy trial. The appellate division upheld the trial court decision. The four-year members represent the equality of the states.

As the head of state, the president symbolizes and represents the sovereignty of the people of the Federated States of Micronesia.
