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.
