Alex Maurice of Beauval says he has decided to put his name forward, adding he has been asked since 2007 to let his name stand for president.
Maurice says jobs and training are two of the main issues he sees facing Metis youth.
The only other candidate in the race is incumbent president Robert Doucette.
Doucette says he feels good about his five years in office, citing paying down of a $2-million debt, and building new relationships with government partners as some of the accomplishments he's most proud of.
The election takes place May 30.
