Anguilla United Party (AUP)
The AUP was formed by J. Ronald Webster in 1979 after his Progressive People's Party (PPP) was removed from office by a no-confidence vote. By May 1980 the highly personalist AUP, later also known as the Anguilla United Movement (AUM), won six of seven legislative seats and Webster, the father of Anguillian separation, reclaimed the office of Chief Minister.

This government fell by 1981, and Webster was expelled from the AUP/AUM.

The party was revived in 1984 by Hubert B. Hughes. The AUP, headed by Edison Hughes, held two seats in the Anguillian parliament as a result of the 1989 general election.

The AUP has ot contested election subsequent to the election of 4 March 1999 as the AUM.
