The election of the new President of Malvatumauri Council of Chiefs, Chief Willie Grey Plasua, on October 2018 has opened doors for chiefs to carry out works and essential duties after a long break which lasted for five months, which was ensued under the dissolution of the last council in May 2018. The Port Vila Epi Council of Chiefs (PVECC) have held two significant meetings where the contemporary Epi Tabumamele Council of Chiefs endorsed Chief Loren Willie to replace the former Chief Loliliu Supapo. The People of Epi expressed their genuine gratitude towards former Chief Supapo in his service and leadership for the last 8 years while holding the position in the PVECC. New President of Epi Tabumamele Council of Chiefs is Chief Benjimen Korah Supapo Varasiliu. The priority agenda which lies in the hands of the chiefs, is to productively carry on and succeed in the remaining work left by the last council.
