Mr Farage had resigned after failing to win a seat in last week's general election
Nigel Farage is to remain as UKIP leader after the party rejected his resignation.
Mr Farage said he would stand down after failing to win a seat in last week's general election.
But the party said there was "overwhelmingly evidence" the UKIP membership did not want Mr Farage to go.
It said: "He has therefore been persuaded to withdraw his resignation and remains leader of UKIP."
