Retiring Chief Minister Hubert Hughes – Anguilla

THE VALLEY, Anguilla, Apr 15, CMC – A six-member observer team from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) has arrived here to monitor next Wednesday’s general election in the British Overseas Territory.

Outgoing Chief Minister Hubert Hughes is not among the 19 candidates nominated to the contest the seven seats at stake in the April 22 election.

Four of the 11 members of the House of Assembly are appointed.

In the last election, the Anguilla United Movement (AUM) won four of the seven seats, with the other seats going to Anguilla United Front (AUF) and the Anguilla Progressive Party (APP).

There are an estimated 11,000 registered voters eligible to cast ballots in the poll that Supervisor of Elections Aurjul Wilson said is being monitored by international observers for the first time.

Chief Minister Hughes has retired from active politics and the AUM is now being led by Dr. Ellis L. Webster, while the AUF enters the elections under the leadership of Evans McNiel Rogers.
