General Election Results - 9 March 1984

General elections were held in Anguilla on Friday, 9 March 1984.

Chief Minister Ronald Webster called the elections two years early.  Webster had ruled the island for 11 of the last 14 years.

The opposition Anguilla National Alliance (ANA) of Emile Gumbs won 53.8 percent of the vote, against 41.7 percent for the Anguilla People's Party (APP) of Mr. Webster.

The ANA took four seats in the seven-seat House of Assembly, the APP had two, and Hubert Hughes, an independent, won the other one.  Webster lost his seat in the Assembly.  Emile Gumbs was sworn in as over as Chief Minister on 12 March 1984.  The two successful APP candidates, Nashville Webster and Osbourne Fleming, later crossed the floor to join the ANA government.  Fleming was subsequently appointed Minister of Finance, Education and Community Development.  Hughes remained as the sole opposition member.

Voter turnout was 72.2%.
