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 renewed commitment by Commonwealth Heads of Government at their 1989 Meeting in Kuala Lumpur to strengthen the democratisation processes in member states continues to be an important catalyst for political change in Commonwealth countries. Since then, a number of governments have formally requested the Commonwealth Secretary-General to provide assistance in a variety of ways, including the mounting of Commonwealth Observer Groups for their elections. Since 1989, the Commonwealth has sent such Observer missions to Malaysia, Bangladesh, Zambia and Seychelles, and preparations are in hand to observe national elections in Ghana, Kenya and Lesotho.
