WHAT DOES UKIP MEAN IN ENGLISH?

UKIP

UK Independence Party

The UK Independence Party is a Eurosceptic right-wing populist political party in the United Kingdom, founded in 1993. The party describes itself in its constitution as a "democratic, libertarian party" and, as of June 2014 reports a membership of over 39,000. In May 2014, UKIP became the first party in over a century other than Labour or the Conservatives to come first in a United Kingdom-wide election, with its performance in the 2014 European elections giving it 24 of the UK's 73 seats in the European Parliament. Although UKIP has never won a seat in the House of Commons, it has three members in the House of Lords and holds one seat in the Northern Ireland Assembly. The party's performance in the 2013 local elections, when it came fourth in the number of council seats won and third in nationwide vote share, was called the "biggest surge for a fourth party" in British politics since the Second World War. The party's leader is Nigel Farage, who was re-elected to the post on 5 November 2010, having previously been leader from 2006 to 2009. Farage is a founding member of the party, which emerged as the Anti-Federalist League in 1991, and has been a UKIP MEP since 1999.
