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 Electoral Framework and Preparations for the Elections

The Herdmanston Accord, a comprehensive review of the Constitution was undertaken, culminating in the Constitution (Amendment) Act 2000. Among other things, the Act provided for the establishment of a permanent Elections Commission to be responsible for the conduct and management of elections. It also validated the use of the new National Identification Card to replace the Voter Identification Card.
