Run-off election will be needed to find new NSTU boss

By CityNews Halifax Staff

It looks like a run-off election will be needed to secure the next president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union.

This comes after the first round of voting to find a new president did not result in a clear winner on Wednesday.

Peter Day and Shawn Hanifen will now be the only candidates on a second ballot after three others in the running have been dropped from the race.

Scheduled for May 29, the run-off election will again be conducted using online voting and a candidate must have 50 per cent plus one of the votes to win.

Day and Hanifen are both looking to take over from current NSTU president Ryan Lutes as of August 1.
