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 Political Background

The Federated State of St Kitts and Nevis achieved its independence on 19 September 1983. The general election of 3 July 1995 is the fourth since independence, the other three having taken place in 1984, 1989, and 1993. It is notable that the general election of 3 July 1995 was called less than two years after the 1993 election, since that election appeared to have precipitated a period of instability and uncertainty in St Kitts and Nevis.
