The new president of the Nova Scotia Teachers' Union was to be revealed on Wednesday night, but the race is apparently too close to call. 

The union says none of the seven candidates were able to secure a majority in Wednesday's vote, as a tally of 50 per cent plus one is needed to declare a winner. 

In a release, the NSTU says five of the candidates have been dropped from the ballot. A runoff will now take place on Jun. 2 between Peter Day and Ryan Lutes. 

The next president's two-year term will begin on Aug. 1. Current president Paul Wozney has not reoffered.
