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 Electoral Framework and Preparations for the Elections

The 12 June 1996 Parliamentary elections were conducted under the Constitution of the People's Republic of Bangladesh, as amended. This includes provision for a non-party Caretaker Government to govern for a 90 day period while a general election is held.
