Last two Nunavik mayors chosen Nov. 16
Mayors chosen for Ivujivik, Tasiujaq
All Nunavik’s 14 communities now have mayors.
That’s after the Nov. 16 special election held in Ivujivik and Tasiujaq, communities which lacked candidates for the mayor’s position during the regular Nov. 7 municipal elections held in other Nunavik communities.
Mattiusi Iyaituk was elected as mayor of Ivujivik Nov. 16, winning against Quitsaq Tarriasuk. Six councillors, Naulittuq Ainalik, Peter Iyaituk, Saira Kanarjuak, Tivi Kiatainaq, Annie Luuku and Kullu Qavavauk were acclaimed their seats on the council.
In Tasiujaq, Peter Angnatuk was elected by acclamation.
The new municipal councils will now chose regional councillors who will represent their communities on the Kativik Regional Government council, which will meet for four days in Kuujjuaq, starting Nov. 25.
