UKIP leader resigns after poor European Parliament elections results

Reading Time: < 1 minute

UKIP has announced that leader Gerard Batten has resigned.

He is standing down after the party lost all its MEPs in the European Elections at the end of May.

Batten had made it clear before the vote that his position would be “untenable” if he lost his seat in the European Parliament.

UKIP lost all its 24 seats secured in 2014 under Nigel Farage’s leadership to his new outfit, the Brexit Party, which topped the polls.

A leadership contest will be launched imminently, and the winner unveiled on 10 August.
