People’s Party of Canada candidate Mark King officially filed his nomination papers with Elections Canada Wednesday.
King said, “We have been working hard and gearing up and now it is official. I am looking forward to meeting the voters and hearing what they want to see for Nipissing Timiskaming.”
Candidates must file their nomination papers 21 days before election day. That can be done in person or online.
A candidate does not necessarily need to live in the riding, but cannot contest two different ridings at the same time. Proof that you are a Canadian citizen, and some form of identification is also required.
The election is Monday, Oct. 21.
King will face Alex Gomm of the Green Party, Liberal incumbent Anthony Rota, Conservative candidate Jordy Carr, and Rob Boulet representing the NDP.
