Nigel Farage has said he would feel forced to launch a political comeback if Brexit was under threat, as official results showed Prime Minister Theresa May's right-wing Conservatives have lost an overall majority in the British Parliament.
The former U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) leader told CNBC on Friday that the election result "imperils the whole Brexit process."
Farage, who resigned as UKIP leader shortly after Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016, suggested a potential coalition government led by left-wing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would put Brexit "in some trouble."
"If Brexit (which the) British people voted for gets betrayed, I would have no choice but to throw myself back into full-time campaigning," Farage said.
Later on Friday morning, UKIP leader Paul Nuttall resigned with immediate effect after the right-wing party failed to win any seats in Thursday's vote. London Assembly member, Pete Whittle, will now become acting leader of the party.
