Reverend Doctor Eperneri Vakadewavosa was this afternoon elected the new assistant general secretary of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma.

The prinicipal of the Methodist Theological College in Davuilevu steps into the role of Rev Tevita Nawadra for a period of one year.

The electoral process went into the third round as none of the 4 nominees were able to get majority votes, more than 51%.

Rev Vakadewasosa said it was important ministers were well versed and educated on the gospel because their congregations were also well educated.

He also added that educated ministers would provide a strong sense of leadership and guidance in the face of changes.

Meanwhile, the election for the vice president's position will be held later this evening.

The annual conference of the Methodist Church is currently in its second day in Suva.
