Nunavut MLAs will soon welcome a new colleague into their fold: David Qajaakuttuk Qamaniq, 58, of Pond Inlet.

Voters in the constituency of Tununiq chose Qamaniq in a byelection held Sept. 16 to fill the vacancy created last March by the death of their former MLA, Joe Enook, who was serving as Speaker at the time of his passing.

Qamaniq, 58, served as mayor of Pond Inlet from 2005 to 2007, and also served on the local district education authority for 12 years and as community liaison officer for the Qikiqtani Inuit Association.

In the October 2017 territorial election, Qamaniq had come in second behind Enook.

This time, he took the seat with 182 votes, only 11 votes more than the only other candidate, Charlie Inuarak, 72, also a former mayor, who won 171 votes.
