UKIP in United Kingdom

UKIP Meaning in Politics

Description of UKIP published by Mona Chalabi: Founded in 1993, the United Kingdom Independence Party is the most right-wing party to have seats in Parliament. The party has gained support from an increasingly Euroskeptic British electorate largely by campaigning on a single issue: withdrawal from the European Union. Its policies have also managed to draw in a large number of Conservative politicians who have defected toward the party. Led by Nigel Farage since 2004, UKIP currently has two seats in Parliament, both gained in by-election wins in the past year. It is currently projected to win around 10 percent of the vote in May’s election; that would be the highest share it has ever received. However, because support for the party is spread out geographically, those votes are expected to translate into two seats at most.
