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.



Summary and Conclusions

The Commonwealth Secretary-General was invited by the Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) of Lesotho to send observers to the 23 May 1998 National Assembly elections to cover the election campaign, the operations of the IEC, and the conduct of the polls. After verifying that the major political parties in Lesotho supported the presence of Commonwealth Observers, through the dispatch of an Assessment Mission, the Secretary-General agreed to constitute a Commonwealth Observer Group, under the leadership of the Rt Hon Sir Lynden Pindling, former Prime Minister of The Bahamas.
