The Electoral Commissioner, Faimalomatumua Mathew Lemisio, tendered his resignation on Wednesday with immediate effect to become the new Land and Titles Court Deputy President, a role coming under scrutiny for never having been advertised. 

Faimalo’s exit comes two days after national by-elections when he was part of the process of issuing warrants of elections for six constituencies and meeting a constitutional requirement for six women to be in Parliament.
