Britain’s anti-European Union UK Independence Party elected deputy chairwoman Diane James its new leader to replace Brexit talisman Nigel Farage who stepped down after helping to win the referendum on EU membership in June.

James, currently a member of the European parliament, was announced as the party’s new head at its annual conference in the southern English coastal town of Bournemouth after a ballot of UKIP’s 40,000 members.

“We are the political change movement of the United Kingdom,” James said, pledging to makes sure Britain acted on the referendum result and left the EU.
