UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall is today delighted to announce that Suzanne Evans will occupy a key role in his top team.
Miss Evans will be one of the Party’s two Deputy Chairmen and as part of that role she will chair the Party’s Policy Committee.
Mr Nuttall said: “I am putting together a team of all the talents and am pleased that Suzanne has agreed to fulfil these functions.
“I am going to be harnessing her expertise in the key area of policy development after her very successful spell as Head of Policy, which culminated with our widely admired General Election Manifesto in 2015.”
Miss Evans said: “I am delighted to accept this position in Paul’s team and looking forward to getting cracking.
“I am also looking forward to contributing to developing the ideas that will further advance Paul’s vision of making UKIP the party of patriotic communities in every part of the UK.”
Mr Nuttall has also announced that the current Deputy Chairman William Dartmouth will remain in his post.
Paul Nuttall said, "Throughout the recent turbulent times for the party, William has remained a Deputy Chairman of great stability. By continuing in this role he will be of great help in the vital task of unifying the party."
