Polio survivor and accessibility advocate Ramesh Ferris has withdrawn his bid to become a Liberal candidate in Porter Creek North during this year’s territorial election.
In a news release, Ferris said he made the decision due to “unforeseen family circumstances.”
Ferris initially sought to become the Liberal candidate in Whitehorse West, but lost the nomination to former journalist Richard Mostyn.
On April 22, he announced he was going to try again, this time in Porter Creek North. But on Monday he withdrew.
So far, no other potential Liberal candidates have put forward their names for Porter Creek North.
The seat is currently held by Yukon Party Education Minister Doug Graham, who won nearly 50 per cent of the vote in 2011.
Hotel manager Francis van Kessel is seeking the NDP nomination for the riding.
