Update: 2:29PM A NEW president for the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma is expected to be elected by this afternoon.

He will take over from interim president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca who was appointed since the passing of the late president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu early this year.

Church communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said over 200 clergies, senior church ministers and lay people are among some of the names to choose from.

These are church ministers who have served for over 10 years in the church.

Some of the names include general secretary Rev Tevita Nawadra, Ratu Peni Volavola, Rev Epineri Vakadewavosa and other senior church ministers.

The church meeting is in progress at the Centenary Church in Suva, Fiji.
