The Brexit Party Candidate will not stand for the Isle of Wight.

Berkshire businessman Peter Wiltshire was due to stand in the upcoming December election- but has now withdrawn.

The Brexit Party has told Isle of Wight Radio,

“Peter won’t be standing on IOW this election.”

It comes as the Party’s leader Nigel Farage announced the party will not field candidates for the 317 seats won by Conservatives in the 2017 election.

Isle of Wight Conservative Bob Seely won the seat here in 2017.
