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.

Political Background

Kenya achieved independence on 12 December 1963 with Jomo Kenyatta as the first Prime Minister and later President when Kenya became a republic in 1964. Prior to independence two national political parties had emerged to contest elections in 1961, namely the Kenya African National Union (KANU) and the Kenya African Democratic Union (KADU). KANU was victorious in this election and again at the 1963 pre-independence election to a bicameral legislature.
