Oposición triunfa en comicios generales en la isla caribeña de Anguila

Landslide victory

The main opposition Anguilla United Front (AUF) was swept into power here after winning six of the seven seats in the general elections on Wednesday, according to the preliminary figures released here.

The incumbent Anguilla United Movement (AUM) did not win a seat. Medical practitioner Dr. Ellis Lorenzo Webster who took over the leadership of the AUM after Hubert Hughes, 82, Anguilla’s oldest chief minister had indicated he was stepping down after 40 years in active politics, received 412 votes in District One, losing to independent Pamovan Webster, a lawyer and businessman, who polled 460 votes.
