Daniel McNeely has won the Sahtu electoral district, according to the Elections NWT website.
McNeely declined comment moments after the final of 18 polls was posted to the website, saying he hasn't heard the final result yet.
“We’re sitting on pins and needles just waiting for that to come,” McNeely said.
McNeely appears to have defeated Yvonne Doolittle, who recieved 227 votes, Judy Tutcho with 166 votes and Paul Andrew with 122 votes.
The electoral district was one of three that had no incumbent because three-term Sahtu MLA Norman Yakeleya announed he would not be running for health reasons.
