Margaret Nakashuk voted into Nunavut’s cabinet

Margaret Nakashuk, MLA for Pangnirtung, was voted into cabinet on Friday, Oct. 30, to fill the position left vacant when Patterk Netser, MLA for Aivilik, was removed from cabinet last week. Nakashuk won’t take on any portfolios during this sitting, but she will join the ministers on their side of the house and will attend cabinet meetings. She will be sworn into cabinet next week after a motion is passed on Monday. Until then, she’s a cabinet minister elect. Adam Lightstone, MLA for Iqaluit-Manirajak, and Joelie Kaernek, MLA for Amittuq, were also nominated for the position. (Photo by Meagan Deuling)
