HAVRE — The Chippewa Cree Business Committee said it will hold a special election to fill the position of ousted Chairman Ken Blatt St. Marks.

St. Marks says he was wrongfully removed and will continue to fight the action the council took Monday to remove him as head of the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation.

Business committee chief of staff Richard Sangrey says the governing panel will request the election committee to set up the special election. Vice Chairman Richard Morsette will act as chairman until it is held.

St. Marks said that the council did not give him any chance to properly respond and the charges are based on false allegations.
