Olayuk Akesuk will remain president of the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, having garnered 61.2 per cent of the vote in Monday’s election.
Chief returning officer Monica Ell-Kanayuk confirmed the results early Tuesday morning. The only other contender for the presidency was Paul Okalik.
Akesuk had been the acting QIA president since P.J. Akeeagok resigned before the end of his term in August 2021.
Ever since he started filling in as president, Akesuk has also been maintaining his duties as vice-president of QIA, a role he was elected to in December 2020.
