The Report of the Commonwealth Observer Group for the Seychelles Presidential Election. The Group was led by Dr Julian R Hunte, the former Foreign Minister of St Lucia, and comprised five eminent persons in total.



Election Day

Polling took place on 19, 20 and 21 May 2011 in accordance with the opening times stipulated by the Chief Electoral Officer, as provided for in the Electoral Act. Given the reportedly highly mobile nature of Seychellois, special provisions were once again made for voters to vote where they were located in an effort to ensure no citizen was disenfranchised. Logistical preparations and distribution of materials appeared to have arrived in correct order and in a timely manner at most polling stations.
