The UK Independence Party has confirmed its list of six candidates to contest the 2014 European elections in the South West region in May with incumbent MEP William the Earl of Dartmouth reselected by UKIP party members in the region to be head of the list.

Second on the list is Dr Julia Reid, who is the European Parliamentary assistant of Trevor Colman, the other UKIP MEP for the region who resigned from the EFD Group that the party fronts in the European Parliament in March 2011. UKIP's Head of Media, Gawain Towler, is third.

The full list [and number of votes]:

  1. William the Earl of Dartmouth (incumbent MEP, 2009-) [16,796]
  2. Dr Julia Reid [11,155]
  3. Gawain Towler [6,174]
  4. Tony McIntyre [4,391]
  5. Robert Smith [4,366]
  6. Keith Crawford [2,856]

UKIP announced their shortlist on 12 August 2013. 45,738 votes were cast for the candidates in the region to determine the order. In the separate membership ballot of 31,000, each member had 10 votes which could be given to candidates in all regions.
