SYDNEY， March 14 (Xinhua) -- The Federated States of Micronesia have voted down dual citizenship， the results has shown.
The Federated States of Micronesia went to the polls last Tuesday to elect their representatives in Congress and to vote on whether to amend their constitution to allow dual citizenship.
The results took longer than usual to disclose for the tiny South Pacific nation as the state of Chuuk was delayed tallying their votes.
One week later however， the counting process was complete， with the National Election Commission certifying the results and notifying President Peter M. Christian on Monday.
"Every two years the people of the Federated States of Micronesia shall choose members to the FSM Congress，" he said in a statement.
"We did. And did well. And I take this occasion to express my thank you to all the people， the citizens of the Nation who went to the polls to cast their votes for the candidates of their choice."
"I want also to take this opportunity to salute all the candidates whose desire to serve the Nation must not be taken lightly."
The major issue going into the election was an amendment bill which would allow for dual citizenship.
Despite winning a strong majority， the bill did not receive the 75 percent of votes it needed to pass.
The election also saw several female candidates run for the first time in the country's history， although not successful， the women received good support from voters.
