WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, Sept. 23) – The Fiji Labor Party has nominated a former army medical doctor to be its new senator.

Major Epeli Nailatikau, will replace Senator Joeli Kalou who died three months ago.

Dr. Nailatikau provided trauma counseling to many of the Labor Party members of parliament after they were released from 56 days of captivity at gunpoint during the 2000 political coup.

He is currently in private practice but also served as the chief medical officer of the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon when the Fiji military was based there.
