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 Role of the Media

We were keenly aware that the transition from a one-party to a multi-party system involved more than the liberalisation of political choice – it also involved giving people the means to make that choice an informed one, thus enabling them to fully participate in the democratic process. During any campaign period, it is important therefore, that the public has access to information on the nature and policies of various political parties and other interest groups, and that a general public airing and discussion of the issues is encouraged. We therefore paid close attention to the role of the media during the campaign.
