Navajo Council deletes legislation to return disqualified presidential candidate to ballot

The Navajo Council continues to debate Legislation No. 0240-14: Relating to Health, Education and Human Services Committee, Naabik’iyati’ Committee and Navajo Nation Council; Confirming Tommy Lewis, Jr., the Superintendent of Schools of the Department of Dine Education
SPONSOR: Honorable Jonathan L. Hale

By the way I just saw an email about proposed Council Legislation 0301-140301-14, An Action Relating To An Emergency; To Address A Matter Which Will Disenfranchise Navajo Voters And Directly Threatens The Sovereignty Of The Navajo Nation; Amending The Navajo Nation Election Code Pertaining To Election Challenges And Appeals. Bascially, 0301-14 was another attempt to return disqualified Navajo Nation presidential candidate Chris Deschene to the special election for the presidential race. Legislation 0301-14 was removed from the Council’s agenda, after its sponsor, Delegate Leonard Tsosie, asked the Council to remove it from their agenda.
