The BNP have been deregistered as a political party by the Electoral Commission after they failed to re-register their party under the Political Parties and Referendums Act 2000.

In a statement the Electoral Commission said:

“The Electoral Commission has today removed the British National Party (BNP) from its register of political parties in Great Britain for failing to confirm their registration details with the Commission – a legal requirement that must be submitted annually”.¬†

Adam Walker, the Chairman of the BNP, said in a statement:

“Owing to an unforeseen error, this routine registration fee has, at this point, not been processed for 2016.¬†This minor technical issue is being put right as we speak.

We can assure all members, supporters and voters that the BNP will be re-registered within a matter of days ready for our big push for the May elections.

In a communication this afternoon, the Electoral Commission has set out in writing the fact that the BNP is protected by law, and the simple re-registration currently underway cannot be sabotaged by hostiles”.
