General Election Results - 15 March 1976

General elections were held in Anguilla on Monday, 15 March 1976.

The Anguilla (Constitution) Order 1976 came into force in 1976 and provided for, among other things, a Ministerial System of Government.

Ronald Webster's People's Progressive Party (PPP) emerged as the majority party, winning six of the seven seats in Anguilla's Legislative Assembly.  Hubert Hughes, an independent, kept the PPP from making a clean sweep of the results.

Voter turnout was 71.7%.

On 1 February 1977, Webster faced a no confidence vote championed by Hubert Hughes. The motion had the full backing of Webster’s ministerial colleagues.  The vote was five against Webster, with British Commissioner David Lebreten abstaining and Webster voting against the motion. Her Majesty’s Commissioner appointed Emile Gumbs as the new Chief Minister.
