2018 NCN Chief and Council Election Results – Marcel Moody re-elected as NCN Chief

The people of NCN have re-elected Marcel Moody as Chief to lead the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation for the next four years.

Moody declared, as he had throughout the campaign, “We are just getting started. Much accomplished, more to do.”

NCN electoral officer Joyce Yetman announced that out of 3,431 eligible NCN voters living on- and off-reserve, 1,684 Citizens cast their ballots, which is a voter turnout of 49 per cent. That participation number is higher than the 2014 election, in which 47% of Citizens voted.

Incumbent Marcel Moody won in 2014 with 913 votes, and received even more confidence this year with 960 votes. He beat out Jerry Primrose (who served as NCN Chief for 16 years until 2014) and William Elvis Thomas.

Moody has lived his entire life in Nelson House and raised his family here. In his canvassing, he discussed the goals he had laid out in 2014 and what he had accomplished with Council in the four years since. Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
