Julie Green, MLA for Yellowknife Centre, was sworn by Commissioner Margaret Thom as a member of the executive council of the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday.
Her portfolio won’t be determined until later this week, she told NNSL Media on Aug. 28.
Several members of the Assembly witnessed the swearing in, including Premier Caroline Cochrane, Finance Minister Caroline Wawzonek, Health Minister Diane Thom and Paulie Chinna, Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs.
Green nominated herself for the executive council position on Aug. 27, the only Yellowknife MLA to do so, after Katrina Nokleby, MLA for Great Slave was removed from the council through a non-confidence motion the day before.
Green was elected to the 18th Legislative Assembly in 2015 and was re-elected to her position for the 19th Assembly in 2019.
