FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — A Navajo Nation official says he expects the Navajo National Council will soon consider revamping the oversight of the tribe’s strife-torn energy company.
Delegate Russell Begaye of Shiprock says he and other tribal leaders have been working to resolve conflict within the Navajo Nation Oil and Gas Co.
The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1qaalVD ) reports that four of the current board’s nine members were removed in December by being voted off the board or by term limitations, and that remaining border members then ousted CEO Robert Joe.
However, the Navajo Supreme Court ruled June 20 that the removals of the four board members didn’t follow required procedures.
Begaye says he expects the council will approve a new charter that would reduce the board to seven members.
