Election Law Receives Amendments


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke has passed amendments to the Kahnawà:ke Election Law in order to create consistent wording between laws relating to Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke elections.

The obsolete term “Mohawk Law on Membership” is hereby replaced throughout by the Kahnawà:ke Membership Law, and the obsolete term “Mohawk Registry” is replaced throughout by “Kahnawà:ke Kanienkehaka Registry.”

The amendments were passed unanimously at this morning’s Council meeting.

“They were made through Mohawk Council Resolution because of the nature of the changes,” explained Grand Chief Michael Ahríhrhon Delisle, Jr. “According to the Interim Legislative Coordinating Committee’s terms of reference, it isn’t necessary for this type of amendment to go through the entire Community Decision Making Process because the changes are minor and inconsequential in nature. It only serves to improve the overall integrity of the Law and will have no impact on how the Law will be interpreted.”

In accordance with the Community Decision Making Process, the amended law will be made available to the community shortly.

Council elections for the three-year term are scheduled for this summer.
