MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said on Sunday he would run for a seat in Britain’s Westminster parliament in any upcoming election.

With parliament in deadlock over Brexit, a new election is widely expected to come before the end of the year.

“Of course I will stand,” Farage, whose party won the European Parliament elections in Britain in May, told Sky News when asked if he would run.
