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.



Political Background

Solomon Islands gained constitutional independence from the United Kingdom on 7 July 1978 and adopted the Westminster system of government. It recognises HM Queen Elizabeth II as its Head of State and is represented by a Governor-General, currently the Reverend Sir John Ini Lapli. Following independence, Solomon Islands joined the Commonwealth.
