Anguillans will elect a new government on February 21 and Chief Minister Osbourne Fleming is confident his Anguilla National Alliance party will retain control of the British territory's government.
Minister Fleming said nominations must be submitted February 8. His party currently has four seats in the House of Assembly. The opposition Anguilla United Front has two, and two are independent.
Seven seats of the House of Assembly are up for grabs in the territory of 13,000 residents. The other four assembly members are appointed. So far, 23 people have said they will run.
