Ernest Betsina has been re-elected as Ndilo Chief.

“I feel pretty good, I feel optimistic. I got a strong mandate from my members, overall 54 per cent people voted me in, so that’s pretty good,” Betsina told CKLB on Thursday.

He received 205 votes, while his challengers Shirley Tsetta got 130 votes and Alex Beaulieu received 33.

On Facebook, candidate Shirley Tsetta called the results “status quo.”

Garbage, jobs and concerns about the environment, plus the Giant Mine Remediation project were also key issues discussed over the campaign.

Betsina will serve as Ndilo chief for the next 4 years.
