Ukip's National Executive Committee has denied coming under pressure from Nigel Farage to reject his own resignation and said the body was "100% behind" the leader.
It comes after reports suggested Farage was in the room for deliberations about the party leadership.
Chairman Steve Crowther said: "There was not the slightest suggestion that the NEC was anything other than unanimous in its wish for Nigel to withdraw his resignation.
"He spent a considerable time making the case for his resignation, and the appointment of an interim leader, but there was no-one in the committee who did not want him to stay on.
"He left the room while it was further discussed. I took the views of members and they unanimously asked him to remain as leader. The NEC is 100% behind Nigel as we go forward in to the referendum campaign which is already under way."
