The Report of the Commonwealth Observer Group for the Ghana Presidential and Parliamentary elections, held 7 December 2012. The Group was led by HE Dr Pakalitha Mosisili, MP, former Prime Minister of Lesotho, and comprised thirteen eminent persons in total.

Following an invitation from the Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC), the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Mr Kamalesh Sharma, constituted an Observer Group for the 7 December 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections. Prior to his final decision on constituting a Commonwealth Observer Group, the Secretary-General initially sent an Assessment Mission to Ghana to assess the prevailing situation as well as the pre-electoral environment. The Assessment Mission was in the country in September 2012.
