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

Voter registration and preparation of the voters' register are fundamental to the conduct of a credible election. In Cameroon, a register of electors is compiled at the divisional level with a separate register for each polling station. An important qualification for registration is that an elector has to be aged 20 years or more, and to have resided in the sub-district for at least six months.
