The UK Brexit Party, led by former head of the right-wing UK Independent Party (UKIP), Nigel Farage, is leading in the UK European Parliament elections, according to preliminary results.
According to the results, Farage’s pro-Brexit party received the majority of votes in the country’s northeast, east and in Wales.

 
The elections’ results follow the announcement by UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday that she would step down as Conservative leader on 7 June after her fourth unsuccessful attempt to win parliament approval for the modified Brexit bill. She will remain prime minister until her successor has been appointed.
