FORMER Social Democratic Liberal Party member Raman Velji has now joined the Unity Fiji Party.

While Mr Velji has not declared his interest on contesting the general election as yet, party leader Savenaca Narube said the experienced politician was an asset to his team.

Mr Narube confirmed Mr Velji's membership, saying he had joined about two to three weeks ago.

"Raman Velji is a member of Unity Fiji, I think it is a great asset for the party to have a person like Raman as a member; he brings in his own network, experience and skills to the party," Mr Narube said.

"We are fortunate that Raman considered Unity Fiji, to be a member of the party."

Mr Narube said the party was in the process of screening its candidates and was hoping to release the first batch of its provisional candidates in a few weeks' time.

"We have to position ourselves ready of an early election according to the legal window that the country has. So we will be ready for that."
