Leader of britain's United Kingdom Independence Party Nigel Farage holds up his party's manifesto in Aveley, Essex, south east England 15 April 2015.
LONDON – Nigel Farage, the leader of Britain&39;s anti-EU UK Independence Party, on Monday withdrew his resignation after tendering it last week when he failed to win a seat in the British parliament.
"Mr Farage withdrew his resignation and will remain leader of Ukip," the party&39;s chairperson Steve Crowther said a statement.
Ukip&39;s national executive committee had unanimously rejected Farage&39;s resignation because party members did not want him to leave, the statement said.
