The Tailevu Provincial Council will work out a date where all chiefs from the province of Tailevu will meet.

This was confirmed by Roko Tui Tailevu Iliesa Delasau today at the Tailevu Provincial Council meeting.

Mr Delasau was responding to a request made by several chiefs at the meeting where they requested that a day was set aside for chiefs to meet to discuss issues regarding the province.

Mr Delasau said he had met with the Prime Minsiter Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday about the issue and the PM had directed his office to work out the logistics of the meeting.

Bau chief Ratu Epenisa Cakobau responded to the comments made by Mr Delasau saying it should be noted that the meeting of the chiefs shouldn’t have politics mixed with it. He said the meeting should be apolitical.

Chairman of the meeting Rusiate Tudravu said comments by Ratu Epenisa were noted.
