The Q&A sessions adopted a new method of shortening time of both questioners and answerers, which allowed for more deputies to present their concerns and improve the quality of given questions and answers.

The fifth session took place in a straightforward and democratic manner, and the deputies’ discussion of bills was carried out based on careful document research and collecting public feedback.

During the course of the session, the NA also conducted a number of external activities and marked the 10th founding anniversary of the group of NA female deputies.

A high-ranking delegation of the Congress of the Federated States of Micronesia led by Speaker Wesley W. Simina came for an official visit and attended a question-and-answer session on June 6.
