Inuit Community Government Elections

As of Friday, November 5, the Inuit Community Governments will now hold elections in December.

Bert Pomeroy is the Nunatsiavut Governments Director of Communications.

He says First Minister Darryl Shiwak announced Friday that elections for councilors in all Labrador Inuit communities will be held on December 15.

The Nunatsiavut Government suspended elections in early October.

Pomeroy says this was to ensure the voter’s rolls and lists in each community complied with the Labrador Inuit Constitution, the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement and the Inuit Community Government Elections Act.

Pomeroy adds that Minister Shiwak announced they are confident that the roles and lists are now in order.
