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.



Preparations for the Election

The Voters’ List for this election consisted of all the registers which had been compiled since 1997. The most recent registration took place from 4 February to 19 March 2002, based on the use of constituency registration centres. Shortly afterwards the law was changed to allow for a continuous voter registration system, but this was not in place in time for this election.
