At the time of the election, Congress consisted of 14 members, of which 10 were elected for two-year terms and four elected for four-year terms. The 2009 elections were for the 10 two-year term seats.
The Asia Pacific Democracy Partnership (APDP) was invited to monitor the elections by the Micronesian government. The APDP sent 18 observers, who reported "some irregularities and procedural inconsistencies".
