General Election Results - 4 March 1999

General elections were held in Anguilla on Thursday, 4 March 1999.

The main parties for the poll in this 35-square-mile island are the Anguilla United Party (AUP) headed by Hughes, the Anguilla Democratic Party (ADP) led by Finance Minister Victor Banks and the Anguilla National Alliance (ANA) headed by businessman Osbourne Fleming.

The coalition campaigned on its record of economic achievement. Leaders pointed to high employment in the colony, where offshore banking and tourism are major sources of foreign exchange.
The result was a victory for the ruling coalition of the Anguilla United Party (AUP) and the Anguilla Democratic Party (ADP), each winning two seats. The opposition Anguilla National Alliance (ANA) won three seats.

In a ministerial slate identical to the previous Government, Victor Banks, the 51 year-old leader of the ADP, was reappointed Minister of Finance and Economic Development. Hubert Hughes took up responsibilities for home affairs, tourism, lands, labor and immigration.

The coalition government lost its majority in May 1999 upon the resignation of Victor Banks, the Finance Minister and leader of the Anguilla Democratic Party (ADP).  Due to the collapse of the ruling coalition, fresh elections were held in March 2000.  Mr Hughes was left with the support of just three of seven elected representatives.  He remained in office as chief minister, but an opposition boycott, initiated in June 1999, prevented the House of Assembly from convening because of lack of quorum. As a consequence, no budget could be passed for 2000. To resolve this impasse, a fresh election was held in March 2000.
