The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations election will go ahead as planned.

The election came under fire recently after some candidates were denied entry in the election in what they were claiming was an unfair manner.

According to the FSIN, an injunction application to postpone the election in federal court was dismissed.

Now that the election is officially moving forward, nominations for every executive position within the FSIN will take place on Wednesday.

Bobby Cameron and Robert Merasty are the two candidates vying for chief. Several people have also put forward their names for the four vice-chief positions.

With the unique circumstances around the election this year, no FSIN business will be conducted during the assembly. Only the nomination process and the election itself will be undertaken over the next two days.

The vote will take place on Thursday across several polling stations around the province and through an online platform.
