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 current Constitution of the Republic of Ghana came into force on 7 January 1993 subsequent to the 1992 Presidential and Parliamentary elections. This Constitution was adopted by a referendum held in April 1992. The 1996 Presidential and Parliamentary elections were therefore the first to be held under the 1992 Constitution.
