THE Methodist Church has submitted its conference agenda to the police as part of its permit application.

Church assistant general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra Banivanua said last year's agenda was submitted to the police.

He said the only changes would be the names and dates.

He confirmed that the names of church president Reverend Ame Tugaue and church secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu would remain.

Mr Banivanua said this could not be changed until the conference was held.

"We hope they will allow the conference because that (elections) are part of it," he said.

Police director operations SSP Rusiate Tudravu earlier confirmed Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua was considering the church's permit application and that the police had requested a copy of the agenda.

Mr Banivanua said most of the annual meetings in the 55 divisions were held although he could not confirm the numbers.

He said some divisional meetings would be held next week, depending on their permits.
