The report of the Commonwealth Observer Mission for Sri Lanka’s Northern Provincial Council Elections, held 21 September 2013. The Mission was led by Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, Former Vice President of Kenya, and was comprised of 4 eminent persons.

The Commonwealth Observer Mission found the conduct of election day itself to be impressive. The Mission expressed concerns about the pre-electoral environment and called for the establishment of an independent electoral commission.

Election Campaign and Media Environment

The election campaign in the Northern Province appeared to have been conducted in a compromised and subdued environment. This seemed, to the Mission, to be attributed in large part to the presence and influence of the military in the province. A background to military presence in the province is given in Chapter 2.
