Chief Simon Fobister of Grassy Narrows isn't running for re-election.
Nominations closed with 12 names on the list at the First Nation. However, the long-time chief's name wasn't among them.
Election staff have received a total of 53 nominations for a total of four seats on council and the chief. Voting is set for next month.
Fobister has led the First Nation in negotiations about clearcut logging and mercury contamination.
He is also answering a pair of charges -- for impaired driving and assault -- from earlier this year.
