On Monday, 11th July, the UKIP NEC voted to ensure that the new leader must have been a member for at least five years.
Statement from MEP Antanas Guoga about UKIP’s change of leadership rules:
It is clear that UKIP are so set on leaving everything that they have now departed from their own constitution. I can only assume that they are now undertaking their own version of ‘Project Fear’ – they are running scared.
Perhaps we should not be surprised given their determination to limit free movement in every area, but to make a move that blocks not only myself, but several of their most experienced parliamentarians, is almost as disastrous as the impact of Brexit on pound sterling.
