Brexit figurehead Farage will not run for MP

AFP, London

Brexit figurehead Nigel Farage will not stand in UK’s upcoming general election, in which his party is threatening to go head-to-head with Prime Minister Johnson’s  Conserva-tives, he announced yesterday.

“Do I find a seat, try and get myself into parliament? or do I serve the cause better traversing the length and breadth of the UK supporting 600 candidates—I’ve decided that the last course is the right one,” he told BBC’s Andrew Marr.

Farage leads the Brexit Party, which formed earlier this year to fight the European parliamentary elections, emerging as the runaway winner.

He has been a harsh critic of the Brexit deal reached between Johnson and the EU and has promised to stand candidates in every constituency unless the Conservatives agreed an election pact, something the prime minister again ruled out on Sunday.
