The UK Independence Party announces its top two candidates in each EU election region. 


UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said,


"We went through an exhaustive process to sift over 190 potential candidates down to those the National Executive Committee representatives and I felt were most suitable. This list is based on a number of factors that we felt would select candidates to fight for a real Brexit after the European elections.
