UKIP leader Farage says will step down after Brexit victory

The leader of Britain's anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage said on Monday he would stand down after having realized his ambition of winning last month's referendum in favor of Brexit.
"I have never been, and I have never wanted to be, a career politician. My aim in being in politics was to get Britain out of the European Union," he said.
"So I feel it's right that I should now stand aside as leader of UKIP."
