LONDON — The Liberal Democrats are looking for a new leader after Tim Farron resigned over his deeply-held religious beliefs on Wednesday evening.
Farron — who was elected the party’s leader in July 2016 — said it felt “impossible” to continue as leader of the Liberal Democrats “living as a faithful Christian”.
“To be a political leader – especially of a progressive, liberal party in 2017 – and to live as a committed Christian, to hold faithfully to the Bible’s teaching, has felt impossible for me,” he said in a statement.
