Few candidates for Navajo president, council positions
Few candidates have filed to run for Navajo Nation president and the Navajo Nation Council.

Rex Lee Jim is the only person to file for president. Only about a dozen have filed for the council.

Tribal elections director Edison Wauneka expects more candidates to file for the council once the Navajo Nation Supreme Court hears a lawsuit over a referendum that reduced the number of delegates from 88 to 24.
