NO decision has been made on who will take up the title of Nadroga's paramount chief vacated by death of Ratu Sakiusa Makutu last year.

Cuvu mata ni tikina Ratu Tevita Nadriubalavu Makutu said other than making preparations for the end of the 100-night mourning period last week, no discussions had been made on who would take up the title.

"We have not done anything to decide who will be installed as the new chief of Nadroga," he said.

"So far, everything we've done has been to prepare for the end of the 100 nights.

"From here we've still yet to discuss other issues which include choosing a new Na Kalevu."

Nadroga Tui Rara Ratu Orisi Nabekasiga said a decision could be made after a meeting with the chiefly family.

"After the 100 nights is over, a meeting will be held by the chiefly family to decide on the next course of action," he said.

"Right now we don't have any names nor candidates that could take up the role.

"All of that will be decided after the meeting is held."
