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.



Preparations for the Elections

The Electoral Rolls Act 1974 and the Electoral Rolls Rules 1974 dealt with the preparation, annual revision, amendment and maintenance of voters lists. The Election Commission (EC) undertook the preparation of electoral rolls through house to house enumeration, supported by media publicity, including a newspaper form which people could cut out and return. We were advised that upwards of 90,000 enumerators were involved in the enrolment process.
