JUST a year after major council elections, Banabans living on Rabi Island in Cakaudrove will soon again take to the polls.
The elections will be from July 5 to July 9.
Rabi Council of Leaders chairman Dr Paulo Vanualailai confirmed that elections for two council seats from Uma Village were vacant following the termination of sitting councillors this year.
"The council terms of Mr Teatu Rewi and Tebaia Tawita were terminated earlier this year following a week-long audit into council management of funds this year," he said. "The termination was a directive from the Prime Minister's Office.
"We need to fill those two seats so elections have been scheduled."
The post of the chief executive officer of the council formerly held by Molly Amon who was sacked along with the other two councillors will be advertised in three weeks.
