A five day extension has been made for the nomination period for the upcoming municipal elections after not enough people put their names forward for council and the district education authority.
A minimum of eight councillors are needed for council. The town did not say how many people have put their name forward.
The extension at this time does not include the mayor’s position. Chief Returning Officer Chidinma Amobi said the town was still verifying some information and would be posting an update shortly.
Nominations will now extend until Sept. 27 at 3 p.m.
Mayoral candidate Clarence Wood confirmed to the Inuvik Drum he has not been acclaimed as a second candidate for mayor was under investigation.
