General Election Results - 15 February 2010

General elections were held in Anguilla on Monday, 15 February 2010.  Seven seats in the Anguilla House of Assembly were contested in the election.

In 2009, the year before the election, Chief Minister Osbourne Fleming, who was also the leader of the Anguilla United Front (AUF), announced that he would not stand for re-election in the 2010 race. Two other members of the ruling AUF also announced their intent to retire as well - Parliamentary Secretary Albert Hughes and Communications and Works Minister Kenneth Harrigan.  Collectively, Fleming, Hughes and Harrigan had been active in Anguillan politics for more than 80 years.  It was announced that Finance Minister Victor Banks would succeed Fleming as the party leader of the AUF coalition.

According to the Constitution of Anguilla, the general election was due to be held by March 2010. However, the election could have been postponed until as late as May or June 2010.

On Monday, 4 January 2010, the last day of the current Assembly, the leader of government business held talks with the Governor of Anguilla, Alistair Harrison, concerning the dissolution of the legislative body to pave the way for new elections.

Retiring Chief Minister Osbourne Fleming officially set 15 February 2010, as the date for the election during a public meeting of the ruling Anguilla United Front (AUF) in Blowing Point held on January 5, 2010. Colville Petty, the supervisor of elections, reported that 8,652 voters were registered to vote in the seven electoral districts on the island.  That marked an increase in voter registration from the 2005 general election, when 7,558 people registered to vote.  
Twenty candidates registered to contest the seven Assembly seats in the election.  The Anguilla United Front, the ruling coalition which controlled the majority of the seven seats in the Assembly since the 2005 election, fielded candidates in all seven constituencies. The opposition Anguilla United Movement contested five constituencies.  The opposition Anguilla Progressive Party also had candidates in five of the seven races.  Three independents also ran as candidates for seats in the Assembly.

The incumbent AUF was defeated, and former Chief Minister Hubert Hughes was sworn in to succeed Fleming as Chief Minister on 16 February 1010.

Voter turnout was 82.1%.

Directly after the election, Jerome Roberts, the sole winning candidate of the APP joined the AUM as a cabinet minister.
