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.
