QIA announces official candidates list for Dec. 10 Pond Inlet by-election
By-election takes place Dec. 10
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association has confirmed the slate of official candidates for the Dec. 10 by-election to chose board member in Pond Inlet.
The QIA announced its unofficial list of candidates on Nov. 14.
Any beneficiary of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement who believed one of the candidates on this unofficial list was not eligible to be a candidate had 72 hours to tell Navarana Beveridge, the QIA’s chief returning officer, in writing about their concerns.
The official list of candidates remains unchanged, and includes:
• Jayko Alooloo
• Enookie Inuarak
• Abraham Kublu
• Cornelius Kadloo Nutarak
• Thomas Ootook
On Dec. 10, Inuit who are Canadian citizens, 16 years of age or older and enrolled under the NLCA are eligible to vote in the by-election, which was called when the former director Philip Paneak resigned.
