The Political Background

Namibia achieved its independence on 21 March 1990 after over 100 years of foreign occupation and a protracted struggle for freedom on the part of the people. The four and a half years which preceded the Presidential and National Assembly Elections we had come to observe were therefore notable on three counts. They were Namibia's first years of independence and freedom from foreign rule, its first years of democracy and representative government, and the first period of tranquillity which the country had experienced for more than a century.
