Brexit Party withdraws candidates from General Election
The Brexit Party has withdrawn its candidates from seats who elected Conservative MPs at the last General Election in 2017.
Party leader Nigel Farage announced the move earlier today to help prevent the pro-Brexit vote splitting and allowing the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats or the Labour Party to make gains. The Brexit Party will still stand candidates against Labour MPs.
In North-West Cambridgeshire, Brexit Party candidate Liam Round announced he was standing down yesterday with "deep sadness" but did not specify a reason as to why. The Brexit Party candidate for East Northamptonshire was Matt Belsom.
