(p.216) Chapter 8 Rough Seas and Later Years
Making Micronesia

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter examines the difficulties during the Nakayama administration. The distance between the executive and legislative branches of the Federated States of Micronesia steadily worsened over the course of Tosiwo Nakayama's presidency, and around money, power, politics, and local rivalries that showed themselves in more subtle forms at the national level. Much of the opposition came from the Chuukese congressional delegation that became increasingly aggressive in demanding of the national government a greater share of national resources, and by means that were markedly partisan and at times unconstitutional. Nakayama's frustrations with Congress stayed with him in his later years. He felt disrespected and largely forgotten by a younger generation of legislators whose immediate loyalties were local, self-serving, and who had little commitment to the concepts of unity and nationhood that he so deeply believed in.
