ADVISORY councillors have been suspended from their functions as their terms of service from last year expired in December.

Macuata provincial administrator Joseva Rokonai said the terms of advisory councillors would be renewed on January 10.

He said until then all functions of advisory councillors in Macuata would be undertaken by his office.

"The terms of the advisory councillors within the province of Macuata will be renewed on (January 10) and we plead with people to bear with us for the time being," he said.

"Advisory councillors carry out an important role in considering ways and means to address the developmental needs of communities and to render appropriate advice to the prime minister and the government."
