RE: Direction on Form of Deposit Accepted
By authority of section 190 of the Nunavut Elections Act, I hereby authorize the Returning Officer and their delegate to accept the $200 deposit of prospective candidates for the 2019 Tununiq by-election in a form other than those listed in Section 74(2) of the Nunavut Elections Act.
The purpose of this direction is to address the temporary inability of the Pond Inlet Northern Store, Co-op and Post Office to provide a deposit in the form of a money order, certified cheque or draft as required by the Act.
This direction is necessary and appropriate to preserve the integrity of the electoral process in Nunavut and is subject to further directions or instructions that may be issued by the Chief Electoral Officer.
