Nunavut General Election 2021

Nunavut General Election 2021

Election Date: 25 Oct 2021
    Nunavut, Canada
    09:00 AM - 09:00 PM
     

    The 2021 Nunavut general election will be held in the Canadian territory of Nunavut on or before October 25, 2021 to return the members of the 6th Nunavut Legislature. Since the adoption of a fixed election date law in 2014, general elections in Nunavut are held in the last Monday of October in the fourth calendar year following the last elections. The Legislative Assembly of Nunavut can be dissolved earlier by the Commissioner of Nunavut on the advice of the Premier of Nunavut.

    Unlike most legislatures in Canada, the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut operates on a non-partisan consensus government model. Candidates in territorial elections run as independents rather than being nominated by political parties. The premier and executive council are then selected internally by the MLAs at the first special sitting of the new legislative session.

    There are 22 seats in the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut.
