The list of candidates vying to form the next council of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band has been released.

Three people are in the running for the chief position, including incumbent Chief Brendan Mitchell. He is being challenged by Hayward George Young and Clyde Thomas Russell.

Six people want to be the western vice-chief, including Keith Cormier, Blain Ford, Gary Greene, Ron Jesseau, Edith Miller and Andy Tobin.

There is a two-way battle set for central vice-chief, between Joe Bouzanne and Randy Drover.

Three of the nine ward councillor positions have already been decided by acclamation with only one candidate nominated in three of the wards. Ivan White will be the ward councillor for Flat Bay, while Calvin Francis gets the nod in Gander Bay and Frank Skeard will be the voice of Glenwood.
