Konge said he was considering throwing his hat into the ring during a city council committee meeting earlier this week but remained tight-lipped about which constituency he would run in.

Now he is listed as running on the Elections NWT site.

He did say in a previous interview that improving cost of living through reducing power prices, social issues involving the city’s sobering centre and day shelter and access to land would be key platform issues.
