Runoff Voted Needed To Elect New Teachers Union President
A runoff vote will be needed to decide who’ll be the next president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union.
However, incumbent president Liette Doucet will not be getting a second term.
Teachers will have to chose between Grant Frost and Paul Wozney both from the Halifax area in another vote a week from today.
Doucet finished in last place in a field of five candidates with just over 200 votes.
Frost picked up just over 22-hundred votes while Wozney finished first with more than 34-hundred.
However, the winning candidate has to win more than 50 per cent of the vote.
The union says 70 per cent of the membership cast ballots.
