Elections of councilors for the Inuit Community Governments have been halted.
Darryl Shiwak is the First Minister of the Nunatsiavut Government.
He says the elections have been halted until the voters rolls and lists are in compliance with the Labrador Inuit Constitution, Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement and the Inuit Community Government.
Inuit Community Councilors who are already serving through acclamation will no longer serve on the council.
Any decision made by a council containing a councilor serving through acclamation will be rescinded.
The incumbent councilors will continue to serve on the council until an election is held.
Nunatsiavut’s Chief Electoral Officer will be meeting with each of the community’s returning officers to ensure the voters rolls and lists have been compiled properly.
A date for the elections will be decided upon by the Nunatsiavut Executive Council.
