THE Peoples' Democratic Party recently welcomed former member of the Fiji Police Force Atunaisa Delai to their party, announcing that he will be contesting this year's general election under their banner.

Mr Delai was part of a group from the force who piloted the Community Policing Program that began in the Eastern Division in 1998.

"I currently volunteer as a preacher and adviser to the Suva North Sector of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints overseeing over 2000 members in Samabula, Tamavua, Wailoku, Lami and Navua regarding their spiritual and temporal needs," Mr Delai said in a statement issued yesterday.

Mr Delai said he hoped to push for issues relating to public safety, rights and protection of children and youth, promotion of women and gender equality, and family values.
