A referendum on the proposed constitution of the Federated States of Micronesia was held on 12 July 1978. It was approved in Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, who formed the Federation on 10 May the following year.[1] In the Marshall Islands and Palau it was rejected, resulting in the islands becoming separate states.
