THE Ba Provincial Council has sent a list of candidates to the Prime Minister's office for the appointment of a new chairman.

Roko tui Ba Timoci Tukana said the names were sent last week after consultations with council members.

"We have sent a list of names and it is up to the PM's office to appoint a new chairman," said Mr Tukana.

"The council will have a new chairman when we have our first meeting for the year in March."

The role of council chairman was left vacant after the passing last month of the Tui Tavua, Ratu Jale Weisele Kuwe Ratu.

Ratu Jale was appointed by the government in April last year taking over from Ratu Meli Saukuru.
