Welcome statement from the FSM National Election Director Mr. Ausen T. Lambert

FSM National Election Office.

   I send compliments to all of you who take the time and opportunity to visit the website in the mother tongue languages of the State of Chuuk-Ran allem; the State of Kosrae-Lenwo; the State of Pohnpei-Kaselehlie; and finally the State of Yap-Mogethin.

I am indeed privileged by the trust and confidence of His Excellency David W. Panuelo, the President of the Federated States of Micronesia in nominationg me to the position of the National Election Director and subsequently received the Advice and Consent of the FSM Twenty-Second Congress. I owe them a debt of gratitude for such a mark of distinction. In return, I will do everything in my might to do this job to make certainly possible that election conducts in the Federated States of Micronesia are carried out in accordance with the mandates of our Election Code and that is a free and fair election for all concerned conducted in a smooth and orderly fashion. But the most signifigance of all is to keep in mind the fact that transparency and accountability are the key ingredients of a free and fair electoral process. To achieve this end, the Offices of the National Election Director and National Election Commissioners are duty-bound to work collaboratively and cooperatively  to faithfully carry out the mandates required of us.

To our citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia, I truly want to encourage you to take advantage of your website at www.fsmned.fm . Let us help you fulfill your constitutional duty for the right to vote with whatever you are not familiar about. We are here to serve you on any and all matters relating to conducting elections in the Federated States of Micronesia. As your new National Election Director being in the Office for only three days, I am fully committed to serving you to the fullest extent practicable. The same expectation goes to our beautiful staff members at your Main Office here in Palikir and the Commissioners and their respective staff members of the National Election Offices in the State of Yap, the state of Chuuk, the State of Kosrae and the State of Pohnpei.

In conclusion, I will be remiss if I do not acknowledge on behalf of the people of the Federated States of Micronesia, our kalangan lap or deepest indebtedness to President Panuelo, Vice President George, Speaker Simina and the esteemed members of the Twenty-Second Congress and the members of the Cabinet for your wise leadership in leading us to where we are at this juncture.
