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.




In October 2001, the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Mr Don McKinnon, received a request from the Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Solomon Islands, Mr Paul Tovua, for the Commonwealth to observe the 2001 National Parliamentary elections. On 6 November, the Commonwealth Secretary-General confirmed that he would constitute such a Group, the first positive response which encouraged Australia, New Zealand, the United Nations, Pacific Forum Secretariat and other similar observer groups.
