Ukip leader Paul Nuttall has confirmed he will stand for Parliament in the General Election.
His announcement ends speculation about whether or not he would run for a Commons seat.
Mr Nuttall said he would be "leading the party into battle" in the June 8 contest, adding he will reveal which seat he will be running for in 48 hours.
"As the leader of the party I will be, obviously, leading the party into battle as I have done many times in the past," he said.
Mr Nuttall failed in his previous bid to become an MP, losing the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election in February.
