    UK Election Results 2024 LIVE: Nigel Farage wins parliamentary seat as Reform UK gains momentum

    UK Election Results 2024 LIVE: Nigel Farage, the architect of Brexit, has finally secured a seat in Parliament on his eighth attempt. This provides the populist Reform UK party leader with a new platform to challenge the traditional Tory-Labour dominance in British politics.

    Farage, 60, won the seat in Clacton, a town on England’s east coast that strongly supported the 2016 Brexit vote and had previously elected a Farage-led party MP in the 2015 general election. With most seats declared, Reform UK had secured at least three other seats, with about 15% of the national vote.

    Farage’s unexpected entry into the campaign delivered a significant blow to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Conservatives. His vigorous campaigning drew right-wing voters away from the governing party.
