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 Elections

The registration of qualified voters is acknowledged to be the cornerstone of a credible election. The integrity and adequacy of the electoral roll is fundamental to democracy. Without a credible roll all the further expense, efforts, preparations and activities for the poll and count amount to nothing for unregistered voters.
