The Northern Mariana Islands Senate is the upper house of the Northern Mariana Islands Commonwealth Legislature. The Senate consists of nine senators representing three senatorial districts (Saipan & the Northern Islands, Tinian & Aguiguan, and Rota), each a multi-member constituency with three senators.

In the November 2007 elections, the three senators up for re-election were all re-elected to another four-year term in the 16th and 17th Senate. The Covenant Party, which has lost control of the House, is in coalition with the Democrats and a lone Independent over the Senate's leadership and voting agenda.

The CNMI Senate is one of the few state or territorial legislatures in the United States controlled by a third party, though under a legislative coalition.

Maria Frica Pangelinan is the first woman to serve in the Senate.[1]
