School trustee can­di­date charged

Lethbridge Herald - - ODDS & ENDS -

A woman who ran for a Cal­gary Pub­lic School trustee po­si­tion last year faces Al­berta Elec­tion Act charges.

Elec­tions Al­berta says it launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion last Oc­to­ber after re­ceiv­ing a com­plaint that an elec­tion can­di­date was in­el­i­gi­ble be­cause she was not a Cana­dian ci­ti­zen.

A sus­pect filed a no­tice of in­tent to run and a nom­i­na­tion ac­cep­tance form and con­firmed they had read the re­quire­ments and were el­i­gi­ble to run in the elec­tion.

Nimra Amjad is charged with sign­ing a can­di­date’s ac­cep­tance form that con­tains a false state­ment and mak­ing a false state­ment for a pur­pose re­lated to an elec­tion. She is ex­pected to ap­pear in court on Feb. 13.
