Tribe's high court reverses election decision


FARMINGTON — The Navajo Nation Supreme Court has reversed a lower court's decision about a special election to fill a vacant seat on the tribal council.

The high court issued its Dec. 16 written decision for an appeal filed by Theresa A. Becenti-Aguilar, who is challenging the eligibility of Steven Begay to represent five chapters.

Becenti-Aguilar and Begay were among 13 candidates who were looking to represent Bahastl’ah, Coyote Canyon, Mexican Springs, Naschitti and Tohatchi chapters after the council seat was declared vacant.
