11:05 am on 15 January 2013

A new resolution impeaching Northern Marianas Governor Benigno Fitial has been pre-filed by newly-installed House Speaker Joe Deleon Guerrero and 14 other members of the leadership.

The group pre-filed the bill a few hours after the simultaneous inaugural sessions of the 18th House of Representatives and Senate on Capital Hill.

The resolution lists 18 instead of the previous 16 allegations of corruption, neglect of duty, and felony.

The governor attended the inaugural session of the Senate led by President Jude Hofschneider, while Lieutenant Governor Eloy Inos and Delegate Gregorio Kilili Sablan attended the House session.
