OHSWEKEN — Six Nations Electoral Officer Steve Williams explained the upcoming elections and how the Election Code will apply.

SNEC heard that the changes made to the community’s new Election Code will take effect in the upcoming election. None of the changes will be retroactively applied.

Councillors Helen Miller and Carl Hill raised frustrations on the new standard in the Election Code requiring a basic education requirement of a high school diploma or GED requirement.

Williams explained that the decision was made by the members of the community in a referendum vote earlier this year.

Hill said that he plans to challenge the rule in the upcoming election. Miller said that she believes it may be a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Nominations for the next council will do away with districts and reduce the council to 9 seats.

Nominations will begin in October.
