Councillors appointed

A TOTAL of 14 advisory councillors have been appointed for Lautoka this year.

Lautoka District Rural Advisory Council interim chairperson Faiaaz Ali said they now waited for elections to determine the next chairperson of the council.

"Normally, what used to happen was that the chairperson was usually appointed but we are going back to the democratic process and having a secret ballot to determine who the next chairperson will be," he said.

He said they were working on learning more about the 14 people who were councillors.

"If at some time we decide that we need more councillors, or if we see there is vacuum that needs to be filled, we will notify the Commissioner Western to get more advisory councillors."

Advisory councillors are mainly responsible for looking after people in their designated areas of duty and bridging the gap between Government and the people.
