Nunavut will have a new premier.
Voters in the territory went to the polls on Monday and Eva Aariak, who was premier heading into the election, lost her seat to George Hickes by 43 votes.
The 22 successful candidates will meet in mid-November to pick a premier from among themselves, according to the rules of Nunavut’s consensus-style government.
Interest was high in the vote, which was conducted in weather that varied from balmy to blizzard over the expanse of the vast, eastern Arctic territory.
