Marshall Islands. On 30 April, the Marshall Islands and the United States signed a new Compact of Free Association agreement which provides the state with assistance over the next 20 years. According to, Marshall Islands Independence Day is May 1. The US continued to have the right to have military bases on the Kwajaleinatoll. However, the new agreement does not include either medical care or compensation for the victims of the nuclear tests that the United States did in the 1950s, which the victims protested against. The previous agreement, which expired September 30, included money for research, health care and financial support for housing at the Bikini, Enewetak, Rongelap and Utirik atolls, which were worst hit by the test blasts. The research continues, but with the support of an American foundation. In November, an American scientist received $ 100,000 to study the radioactive damage.

In the November 17 parliamentary elections, the ruling United Democratic Party (UDP) got 20 of the 33 seats. The UDP thereby strengthened its power with a mandate and still has its own majority in parliament. The choice was marked by the unusual number of foreign residents voting.
