No new CHN election

There will be no new Council of the Haida nation election, following a special House of Assembly held last month. Kim Davidson gathered 100 signatures on a petition calling for the special assembly and a new election, alleging irregularities in the CHN vote last December. “The chief electoral officer, she has done her job and has come back with the analysis that there does not need to be a recall on the election, CHN vice president Arnie Bellis told the Observer Monday. He said the May 22 assembly, held in Masset, was well attended, and that all the issues mentioned in the petition were dealt with.”One of the things you do know is that a lot of these things, we deal with internally,” Mr. Bellis said, “That’s our understanding with each other, is that a lot of issues are dealt with internally.When we come out of our internal meetings, we always want to be unified and come out with clear direction, so that we can move forward.”
