These Election Reports are the observations, conclusions and recommendations of Commonwealth Observer Groups. The SecretaryGeneral constitutes these observer missions at the request of governments and with the agreement of all significant political parties. At the end of a mission, a report is submitted to the SecretaryGeneral, who makes it available to the government of the country in question, the political parties concerned and to all Commonwealth governments. The report eventually becomes a public document.



The Campaign and the Media

The campaign for the 2001 General and Regional Elections had been, in a sense, a long one. It began with the political upheaval after the 1997 elections, and continued through the negotiations leading to the Herdmanston Accord in 1998, the constitutional reform process of 1999-2000 and the postponement in late 2000 of elections from mid-January to 19 March 2001.
