Yellowknife, with a population of 18,700, is the Northwest Territories' capital and by far its largest community.

Political History:

Expect a roster of new contenders in Weledeh this fall: Premier and incumbent MLA Joe Handley announced on Aug. 15, 2007, that he would not seek re-election. Handley kept his seat by acclamation in the 2003 election. He was first elected in 1999, unseating incumbent MLA Roy Erasmus.
Before 1999, the Yellowknife North district covered the territory that now comprises the Weledeh and Great Slave districts. Voter turnout in Yellowknife is usually the lowest in the territory, but this district is an exception: turnout in the 1999 election was 77 per cent.
