Nigel Farage, the UK’s most outspoken Eurosceptic, announced that he is stepping down from frontline party politics, having achieved what he says is his “life’s work.”
Axar.az reports that Farage was the leader of the Reform UK Party, previously known as the Brexit Party. He has stepped down as the leader of Reform UK, and will now be honorary president instead.
He was previously the long-time leader of the anti-EU UK Independence Party, more commonly known by its acronym UKIP.
Farage played a leading role in bringing about and winning, the 2016 Brexit referendum that saw the UK vote to leave the EU.
His political career has lasted almost 30 years, and been a controversial one owing to his outspoken views not only on the EU but immigration also. He tried and failed to be elected as an MP seven times.
