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 Legal and Administrative Framework

The Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago sets out the fundamental provisions of the electoral system. One of its key features is the requirement that the House of Representatives is to be elected by secret ballot. The qualifications of persons who may be nominated for such an election are contained in the Constitution.
