Brexit Party Won’t Stand in Conservative Seats

Nigel Farage, the Leader of the Brexit Party, has confirmed that the party will not be standing in constituencies which are held by Conservative MPs. The decision is a reversal from a previous announcement when Farage said that the party would be standing in every constituency.

Farage said in a statement:

“Now that the Prime Minister has said we we will not extend the transition beyond 2020, and he will go for a Canada-style free trade deal without political alignment. I have decided to put country before party and will not oppose Boris Johnson.

This ensures that the General Election will not result in a hung parliament and second referendum. We will target Labour and Remainer MPs and get a voice in Parliament to make the PM keep his promises”.
