Guam - The four nominees selected by local Chamorro rights organizations came to an agreement Saturday when they met for a few hours at Chamorro Village in Hagatna. But according to Dr. Miguet Lujan Bevacqua, those details will not be discussed until Governor Eddie Calvo returns to Guam next week.

Bevacqua couldn't say who would fill the spot on the Guam First Commission, only saying the group agreed on a plan that will be presented first to the governor and Speaker Judi Won Pat. The other nominees are Trini Torres, Frank Schacher and Antonio Artero Sablan.

In the meantime, author of the law Senator Rory Respicio says if the group doesn't come to an agreement, Governor Calvo will be forced to make the decision.
