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.



Preparations for the Election and the Electoral Process

From 1986, the Military Council exercised the normal legislative powers of the State through the issue of Orders. In early 1990 the Military Council, having declared its intention to return the country to parliamentary democracy, set in motion the process for drawing up a new Constitution. The Council also issued the National Assembly Election Order 1992, which provided for the registration of voters and conduct of the election of members to a National Assembly.
