The CNMI has not elected a Democratic Governor since 1993, when Froilan Tenorio was elected. At the legislative elections of November 1, 2003 the party won 1 out of 18 seats. It won an extra seat in the 2005 legislative elections. Its candidate Froilan Tenorio won 18% in the 2005 gubernatorial election. In the November 3, 2007 Commonwealth Legislature elections, the party took only 1 of 20 seats in the House of Representatives.[2][3]

In 2009, for the first time ever, the Democratic Party did not nominate a candidate in the gubernatorial election. They fielded a candidate for Mayor of Saipan (Angelo Villagomez), along with two CNMI House candidates and one CNMI Senate candidate.[4]

In August 2016, the Commonwealth Election Commission recognized the party for the 2016 election year. Three of the 67 political candidates on the NMI are Democrats.[1]

As of March 2020, the CNMI Democratic Party does not have any seats in the CMNI Senate[5] or the House of Representatives.[6]

The party organized the 2020 Northern Mariana Islands Democratic caucuses.[7]

In the 2020 elections, four incumbent representatives announced that they would run for re-election as Democrats.[8] The party is running 18 candidates, and supporting 3 independent candidates.[9] The result of the 2020 general election indicates that of the 18 candidates, nine Democrats and the three endorsed independents were elected to office.[10]


The CNMI Democratic Party has defended Article 12 of the CNMI Constitution which restricts land alienation to persons of Northern Marianas descent.[11]
