Waqairatu to contest presidency post
August 28, 2012 1:01 am
Methodist Church General Secretary Reverend Tukilakila Waqairatu will be among church ministers to contest the presidency elections tomorrow.
This was confirmed by Assistant General Secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra amid media reports that he is among the few ministers that have opted to withdraw from elections tomorrow.
He says the views expressed in the dailies are not of the Methodist church.
Reverend Nawadra says the church has yet to receive anything in writing from Reverend Tukilakila on his intentions to withdraw.
However – he has confirmed to FBC News that former church president
Reverend Manasa Lasaro and Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca have informed the church that they will retire from active participation in church as they have reached the age of 70.
The meeting proper begins in Suva tomorrow.
