Former Suva mayor,  Ratu Peni Volavola has been elected as vice president of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma.

Volavola who was one of the top contenders with Filipe Ravouvou was declared the winner after the completion of the election process this morning at the Suva Centenary Church.

General Secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the successful candidate for the position needed to have a vote of 359 and both hopefuls were close to the target with Volavola edging Ravouvou.

According to Nawadra, a total of 702 votes were casted by registered members.

Volavola replaces Ratu Wame Gavidi who held onto the position since 2008.

Meanwhile, the Methodist Church will have to look for a new principal for the Methodist Theological College in Davuilevu after Reverend Dr Epeneri Vakadewavosa was yesterday newly elected as the new assistant general secretary of the Church.

Rev Dr Vakadewavosa will continue to be in power until January 1, 2013.

The annual conference of the Methodist Church ends in Suva later today.
