UKIP Names Former Army Officer Henry Bolton as New Leader”

Bolton, an infantry officer who also served in the police, was elected the UK Independence Party's fourth leader in a year with 3,874 votes, 30 percent of the total, saying his priority was to ensure that Prime Minister Theresa May's government delivered the exit from the EU.

Mr Crowther told Ukip's party conference: "Our society has been built on Christian principles, including the primary aspirations to be loving, forgiving, peaceful and just".

Activists stood outside the Ukip party conference with placards as they targeted former leader Nigel Farage.

Under the leadership of Nigel Farage, the right-wing party achieved the rarest of political feats in securing its entire aim with the fulfilment of the Brexit vote, after nearly two decades of campaigning.

Bolton's election comes as a surprise as the party's deputy leader Peter Whittle and anti-Islam candidate Anne Marie Waters were considered the favored options, Business Insider reports.

Some 12,915 votes were cast in the leadership election, a 46% turnout.

The protesters stood with banners reading: "We say no to racism".

Whittle, who is arguably the party's most well-known remaining figure, was the bookmakers' favourite to win the contest just hours before the result was announced but finished in fifth-place with 1,413 votes (10.9%).

Everything you need to know.

He added that UKIP will fight for "a nation that is proud to be called British".

Farage, who had been tipped to form a new political movement in the event of a Waters victory, has praised Bolton as a "man of real substance".
