Petition demands delay in Nisga'a elections

John Crawford

A petition is being presented to the Nisga'a Lisims Government requesting a one-year delay on the elections scheduled for this November.
The petition, containing over 600 signatures, has been spearheaded by a group which has been demanding more accountability from the Lisims Government. 
They're calling for a forensic audit of the government's finances, saying that should be completed before elections are held.
Allegations of financial mismanagement and corruption were made over a year ago by a former I.T. manager for the Nisga'a Lisims Government, but earlier this year, an independent investigation said it found no merit in the allegations.
Those signing the on-line petition say Lisims Government Administration is not acting in accordance with Nisga’a Constitution, and they want the matter discussed during government meetings next Monday and Tuesday.
