Antigua and Barbuda general election, 2009
|This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Antigua and Barbuda
On 9 March 2009, the Antigua and Barbudan Chamber of Commerce announced observations of voter registration irregulaties and called for an investigation into the matter. For example, in the Saint Peter constituency, voter registration increased by 41%.
On 31 March 2010, a judge nullified the election of UPP's leader Spencer and two other UPP MPs, calling the UPP's majority into question. The UUP may opt to call an early general election instead of by-elections for the three seats. However, the Court of Appeal of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court overturned, on 24 October 2010, the High Court of Antigua and Barbuda's decision and decided that the three MPs were duly elected.
