UK's anti-EU Brexit Party launches EU election campaign

LONDON — British politicians on both sides of the Brexit divide are launching campaigns for an election that may never take place: the contest for U.K. seats in the European Parliament.

Britain was due to have left the EU before European elections in late May. But with Parliament still deadlocked over whether to approve the government's divorce deal with the bloc, EU leaders have postponed Brexit until Oct. 31.

Prime Minister Theresa May still hopes Britain can avoid the election by leaving the EU by the end of May.

But campaigning has already started.

On Friday, Nigel Farage launched the campaign of his newly formed Brexit Party. The former U.K. Independence Party leader said delays to Brexit were "a willful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation."
