The announcement came at the end of Dehcho candidates forum in Fort Providence
Incumbent Dehcho MLA Ron Bonnetrouge says if he is re-elected to the N.W.T. Legislative Assembly, he will put his name forward to be premier.
“I realized in my time as an MLA, regular MLA, if one wishes to affect change in government decisions in relation to small community issues, one would need to be in a position of power,” he said at a candidates forum in Fort Providence Wednesday.
“Therefore I’d like to put my name forward to run for premier,” he said. “Of course I’d need your support to continue in my political journey.”
Bonnetrouge would first need to be elected to represent the Dehcho and then elected by over 50 per cent of the elected MLAs.
