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 and the Media

Although there is no official campaign period in Solomon Islands, section 78 of the National Parliament (Electoral Provisions) Act 1980 infers that campaigning may take place from the date of proclamation to the date of publication of the results. Candidates would normally start their campaigning as soon as they had been validly nominated and allocated their symbol with background colour. Campaign rules for electoral campaign activities, candidates and their supporters were however included in the manual issued for the guidance of the police on security arrangements.
