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.



Conclusions and Recommendations

Our observation of the election afforded us the opportunity to contribute to the strengthening of democracy in The Gambia. The election is a credit to the people of The Gambia. The registered voters were eager to participate.
