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 Legal Framework

The 1990 Constitution of Mozambique provides for the direct election of an executive president as head of state and government and a single chamber 250-member Assembly of the Republic as the legislature. Elections by direct universal adult suffrage and a secret ballot every five years for the election of both the President and deputies of the Assembly of the Republic are mandatory. The Constitution enshrines multiparty principles and provides for the separation of powers between the executive, judicial and legislative arms of government.
