The final list of nominees for Acho Dene Koe chief in February’s election now includes three candidates, down from four earlier this month.
Frank Kotchea Sr, provisionally listed as a nominee at the start of December, does not appear on a final notice of poll issued on Monday. The three candidates who remain are Floyd Bertrand, James Duntra Sr and Eugene Hope.
The election of a new chief for the Fort Liard-based First Nation is now more than two years overdue.
Polling day will be February 2, 2023. Monday’s notice of poll stated online voting will open a week earlier, while mail-in voting will also be possible.
Whoever wins the election will become the First Nation’s chief until April 2024.
