Britain’s populist UK Independence Party (UKIP) has elected outsider c as its new leader Friday.
Bolton will replace Paul Nuttall who resigned following a disastrous snap general election performance in June when UKIP’s vote share shrank to 1.2 percent from 12 percent.
A former soldier and police officer, Bolton won the race with around 30 percent of the vote to become UKIP’s fourth leader in a year.
He defeated rival Anne Marie Waters, who had provoked controversy with hostile comments about Islam.
The Eurosceptic party had campaigned for Brexit and its former leader Nigel Farage stood out as a staunch supporter of the Leave campaign.
Despite seeing June 2016’s Brexit referendum ending in a decision to leave the EU, the party has been dogged by infighting and resignations.
Under Nuttall the party introduced a so-called “integration agenda” aimed at Muslims, including a proposed ban on wearing a full-face veil in public.
It also used anti-Turkey slogans in its campaigns.
UKIP has no remaining MPs in the British parliament and lost all council seats bar one across the country in the last local elections.
