The Assembly of First Nations plan on having chosen their new national chief by the end of the day.

Two candidates are left in the running after several rounds of voting on Wednesday.

Reginald Bellerose of Saskatchewan and RoseAnne Archibald of Ontario are still vying to replace Perry Bellegarde as national chief. He was first elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2018 but announced in December he didn’t plan on running again.

The winning candidate has to garner 60% of the vote.

If elected, Archibald would be the first woman to be elected as national chief.
