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 Campaign

The ban on party political activity was lifted in June 1995. However, the election campaign did not begin in earnest until the end of the year. As with much else in these elections, this too was largely due to the war.
