In the 1999 election, the main issues territory-wide was the question of native self-government and control over the Northwest Territories' resources. The Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories runs on a consensus government model, therefore no political parties exist (although the Western Arctic New Democratic Party have attempted to revive a partisan legislature, such attempts have failed). The 1999 election was the last in which Inuvik Boot Lake electors actually voted. In every election since, the sole candidate, Floyd Roland, has been returned by acclamation.[3][2]
