On July 4 UKIP leader Nigel Farage one of the global leaders in the fight against globalism and the New World Order shockingly announced that he was resigning as leader of UKIP sparking a leadership election.
Tuesday Morning Member of the European Parliament for North East England Jonathan Arnott announced that he is running to be the next leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party. The 35 year old was elected to the European parliament in 2014. For 15 years Jonathan Arnott has fought so that a result like what we saw June 23 would become a reality, most of that time wasn't in politics. Mr. Arnott is not very well known at all, he has a lot of room to grow and show the British people who he is and why UKIP under his leadership is the best choice for the people of the United Kingdom to make.
The UKIP national executive committee has ruled that all candidates have to have been a member for 5 years in order to run in the leadership election which means well known prominent members like former MP and current Member of the Welsh Assemble Mark Reckless. Candidates have to make a deposit of 5000 pound deposit which will be funded if the candidate secures more than 5% of the vote. Nominations for party leader need to be backed by a proposer and 50 supporters from at least 10 different branches, the deadline for nominations is July 31st.
Mr. Arnott has really emphasized the importance of reaching out to the 13.6 million people who voted to leave the European Union but did not vote for UKIP in the 2015 general election.
Jonathan Arnott is expected not to be the last candidate that runs to be the next leader of UKIP. Potential candidates include immigration spokesman Steven Woolfe, Deputy chairwoman Diane James both haven't commented whether they will stand in a leadership election. The leaders of UKIP in Wales and Scotland Nathan Gill and David Coburn have both said they haven't ruled out or made a decision on whether they would stand in a leadership election or not. Deputy leader Paul Nutall MEP for Northwest England, Tim Aker MEP for the East of England and MP for Clacton Douglas Carswell even before the ruling was made by the NEC ruled himself out as a candidate to succeed Nigel Farage.
