Ukip's only sitting MP, Douglas Carswell, has ruled himself out of the race to be the party's next leader.
Mr Carswell, who held his Clacton seat on a reduced majority, said he would not seek to fill the post vacated by Nigel Farage, who announced his resignation after losing out in Thanet South.
Mr Farage said he was taking a break but left the door open for a return when the party elects a new leader in September while endorsing Suzanne Evans, the deputy chairman, to be a stand-in until the leadership challenge is complete.
Mr Carswell praised Mr Farage, the man behind his defection from the Conservatives, as a "heroic and inspirational figure" but told the Times (£): "I am not going to be running as leader."
A Political theorist from the University of East Anglia says that even the Conservatives will be surprised after the party secured a shock majority.
Many polls has predicted that it would be a tight run thing between Labour and the Tories, but it didn't turn out that way as David Cameron returned to number 10.
Professor Alan Finlayson says that Mr Cameron will be pleased to now be in charge of a majority government, but added that he could still face difficulty passing through bills in parliament.

"It's going to be a surprise, even for the Conservatives.
They were hoping to hold steady and they've actually increased their seats.
That said, it's going to be a very small majority and there's still going to be quite a lot of tension and difficulty in parliament."
The former Cambridge MP Julian Huppert says that he is "gutted" after he lost his seat to Labour's Daniel Zeichner.
Mr Huppert was defeated by just 599 votes in an incredibly tight contest.
Having had time to digest the loss, Mr Huppert has taken to Twitter to thank the people he served in his constituency and added that he was devastated not to be able to carry on.
It has been a huge honour to serve my home city for the last 5 years. There is much I'm very proud of - and a huge amount still to do. #fb
Thanks for all your support over the last five years. I'm gutted not to be able to continue that work, here in Cambridge and nationally. #fb
