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

When we arrived in Lusaka, election day was just a week away. We were aware that there had been predictions of violence and intimidation, and we expected that there would be the usual rumours and display of partisanship which characterise most election campaigns. But our immediate impressions were that this election campaign was being conducted in a relatively calm manner and the absence of excitable crowds, of any great numbers of party emblems, buntings, or photographs of candidates were most notable.
