UKIP leader Henry Bolton is positive he will win the support of his celebration in a vote of members next weekend, he informed the BBC’s Andrew Marr.
Mr Bolton recommended he was still in a relationship with Jo Marney, whose racist texts about Meghan Markle stimulated a no-confidence vote in him.
“There are strong love there, yes,” he informed Andrew Marr.
But he stated the celebration needed to reform under his management or continue to be on the sidelines in the Brexit dispute.
“I am getting a substantial quantity of assistance from around the nation due to the fact that the subscription understand exactly what’s been going on within the celebration for a long time and they understand I am not accountable for that,” he informed Andrew Marr.
“They understand that factionalisation has to be handled if the celebration is going to professionalise and work.”
Asked by Marr if his management was over, he stated: “No, I do not think it is.”
Mr Bolton, who ended up being UKIP’s 4th leader in 18 months in September, stated the celebration might not pay for another “4 or five-month” management election.
“By then the celebration will have lost the chance to form the future self-reliance of this nation, post-Brexit,” he stated.
Mr Bolton dealt with a string of front bench resignations after the celebration’s National Executive Committee passed a vote of no self-confidence in him last month.
Senior UKIP figures stated media protection of Mr Bolton’s individual life – and the method he had actually handled it – had actually made his position illogical.
The row appeared after it emerged that Jo Marney had actually sent out racist personal messages on Facebook, consisting of one stating Prince Harry’s bride-to-be Meghan Markle would “taint” the Royal Family.
At the time, Mr Bolton, who stated the messages were sent out prior to he satisfied Ms Marney, explained them as “absolutely indefensible” and stated he had actually ended the relationship.
He informed Andrew Marr the messages had actually been gotten of context, including: “In the days to come there will be more proof provided regarding how they were acquired,”
His future now depends upon a vote of celebration members at an amazing basic conference next Saturday in Birmingham.
