Government of Northwest Territories:

 

ntThe Political field of Northwest Territories involves the governance of the Northwest Territories as well as the economic, social, and political issues specific to the territory.

 

This includes all matters pertaining to local governance and governance by the Federal Government of Canada, the inclusion of the aboriginal population in territorial affairs, and the matter of official languages for the territory.

 

Territories of Canada have no inherent jurisdiction and only have those powers delegated to them by the federal government Canada. The Northwest Territories operates as under a Consensus Government system. Therefore, candidates for election to the territorial legislature do not stand as members of a political party.

 

Some candidates may form an association or affiliation, or membership with a political party, party membership is not recognized in the legislature of North West Territories.

 

As a result, the Members of the Legislative Assembly select a Premier by way of a secret ballot, rather than on the basis of party affiliation. Many former British Territories having larger indigenous populations use consensus government to fuse traditional tribal leadership with the Westminster system.
