General Election Results - 22 April 2015

On Wednesday, 25 February 2015, a Proclamation was issued by Her Excellency the Governor, Christina Scott, dissolving the Anguilla House of Assembly with immediate effect.  This paved the way for the general election. The Governor acted after consultation with Chief Minister, Hubert Hughes, as provided by the Constitution.  Nomination Day was set for Thursday, 9 April 2015; and Polling Day for Wednesday, 22 April 2015.

Approximately 11,000 Anguillians were eligible to vote in the 35 square mile British Overseas Territory with a population of just over 13,000.

A total of 19 candidates are contesting the 2015 General Election. Both the majority Anguillan United Movement (AUM) led by Dr. Ellis L. Webster; and the opposition Anguillan United Front (AUF) led by former Finance, Economics, Commerce and Tourism Minister Victor Banks, have a candidate running for election in each of the seven constituencies.  The almost two-year-old Democracy, Opportunity, Vision & Empowerment (DOVE) party, headed by former Cable and Wireless executive and businessman Sutcliffe Hodge is fielding only three candidates. There are also two independents - Palmovan Webster, a lawyer and businessman Statchel Warner - vying to become the representatives of their respective constituencies.

The economy, job creation, infrastructural development and good governance were among the main issues a lengthy election campaign, spanning a little over 12 months.

For the first time in Anguilla’s history, a six member team of independent election observers arranged by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) British Islands and the Mediterranean will be monitoring the polls.

On Polling Day there was a landslide victory for the Anguilla United Front (AUF) winning six of the seven seats. Independent Palmavon Webster preventing the AUF from making a clean sweep of the polls.

The result represented the return of elected women to the House of Assembly after an absence of 30 years, with three women being victorious - Cora Richardson-Hodge and Evalie Bradlie of the AUF and Independent Pam Webster.

A total of 7,978 of the 10,908 registered voters participated in the election resulting in a voter turnout of 73.14%
