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 general election in March 1999 was the fourth such election since Antigua and Barbuda gained independence on 1 November 1981. At independence, Antigua and Barbuda attained membership of the Commonwealth in its own right, and became the 157th member of the United Nations. It is a constitutional monarchy with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State.
