UKIP announces new leader

The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) was set up to campaign for Britain to leave the European Union.

Newly-elected leader of the UK Independence Party, Paul Nuttall, delivers his acceptance speech following the leadership in London, on November 28, 2016

UKIP, now regarded as the country’s third political party after the Conservatives and Labour, was set up to campaign for Britain to leave the European Union.

Diane James quit her job only 18 days after she was sworn in as the party’s first female leader.

Since then, former leader Nigel Farage has been running the party on an interim basis.

The new leader is expected to reunite the party, which has been hit by high-level resignations and infighting among key figures.
