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.

St Kitts and Nevis is a federal state comprising the two islands of Saint Christopher on the one hand and Nevis on the other separated only by a narrow stretch of water. The Constitution provides for a federal Parliament comprising Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (represented locally by an indigenous Governor-General) and an elected National Assembly of 11 members.
