UKIP last night announced the names of the eleven candidates that have applied to take part in next month’s leadership election (see list below).
The party has though, it says, still to complete its vetting procedures, so there is a chance that not all the eleven names will appear on the election ballot papers.
Once the vetting procedure is completed, the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) will, at its next meeting on the 11th August, approve the names to go forward for election.
There will also be a series of hustings over the coming weeks and outline details of those, where known, appear below – if you are a party member and wish to attend, please contact your local party chairperson.
UKIP Leadership Applicants (subject to final vetting):
Anne Marie Waters

24th August – Yorkshire
31st August – South East
