UK Independent Group Says Registered As Change UK Party Ahead Of EU Elections
The UK Independent Group announced on Tuesday that the country's Electoral Commission had approved its application to register as a political party named Change UK ahead of the European Parliament elections
"Great news! We've got the thumbs up from the Electoral Commission, which means 'ChangeUK - The Independent Group' will be on the ballot paper if EU elections proceed," Independent Group tweeted.
The United Kingdom was granted a flexible Brexit extension until October 31, after it failed to secure a deal for its exit out of the European Union by the original deadline of March 29 as well as its first extension of April 12. Under the agreement secured between UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the European Council on April 10, the United Kingdom is obliged to hold European elections in May if it does not leave the bloc by then.
