Introduction

At their last meeting in Cyprus in October 1993, Commonwealth Heads of Government recognised the historic significance of these National and Provincial Elections in South Africa, and agreed that a ‘sizeable international observer presence would be indispensable if confidence in the process was to be assured and the people of South Africa enabled to cast a valid ballot’. They saw a Commonwealth election observer mission as an important component of this wider international presence. The Commonwealth Observer Group to South Africa (COGSA) was consequently established by the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, following an invitation from the Transitional Executive Council (TEC) of South Africa.
