THE Christian Party has announced Kevin Milburn as its candidate for the Eastleigh by-election.

It said Kevin Milburn would be standing in support of traditional marriage.



The 60-year-old married man, who has two children and two grandchildren, served 33 years as a prison officer and a health care officer before retiring in 2007.

He still works part-time and has led his church fellowship for the past 22 years.

Jeff Green, leader of the Christian Party, said: “If you vote for Kevin, you can send a very clear message to David Cameron and Nick Clegg that people are saying yes to integrity in politics and yes to traditional marriage.”
