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.




Zimbabwe has a special place in the Commonwealth. The association was closely involved in the process leading to the Lancaster House Agreement and in the decision to hold democratic elections - which were observed by an 11- person Commonwealth Observer Group - leading to independence for Zimbabwe in 1980. Zimbabwe's capital, Harare, was the venue for the 1991 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting at which the Harare Commonwealth Declaration was adopted.
