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 Poll and Count

The first step in the Presidential and Parliamentary elections took place on 3 December 1996 with designated polling stations opening for special voters (see Chapter 2). Our Observers were present for this exercise. There was confusion and delay at most stations because the lists of special voters had not been compiled alphabetically or in numerical order.
