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.



Conduct of the Poll

The conduct of the poll marks the climax of the election process. This single event, perhaps more than any other, usually attracts final judgment on whether the election was free and fair, and on the quality of the services delivered to the electors. It is also this occasion that provides an opportunity for public scrutiny of election officers by the voting public, which will have the chance to assess their competence and integrity.
