THE ANGUILLA UNITED FRONT
The Anguilla United Front (AUF) was created on January 7th, 2000 as a political and electoral
partnership, when an agreement, The United Front Agreement, was signed by the Chairmen and
Political Leaders of the Anguilla National Alliance and the Anguilla Democratic Party, on behalf of the
executive and rank and file members of the two parties. The full title of the United Front Partnership
as set out in the Agreement is United Front for the Restoration of Democracy, Good Governance,
Peace, Political Stability and Economic Prosperity to Anguilla.
The AUF under the political leadership of the Honourable Osbourne Fleming presented itself to the
Anguilla electorate as a partnership in the campaign for the general elections held shortly thereafter,
not as a traditional coalition of two political parties to contest elections.
The AUF, when it took over the reins of the Anguilla Government in 2000, brought to the administration
of the Government of Anguilla considerable experience gained from the participation of its elected
leadership in various governments dating back to 1981. In 2000, the AUF ministers who formed the
Government following the February elections had between them at least 35 years of service as
ministers in various Anguilla Governments.
“Anguilla in the year 2020 will be a harmonious and empowered society, in a healthy environment, with
constitutional autonomy, enjoying a high standard of living and sustained social and cultural
development, democratically achieved, a full member of the regional community, competing successfully
in the global market”.
