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 historic decision to constitute a Joint Observer Group from the Commonwealth and La Francophonie to observe the 1998 Presidential and National Assembly elections in Seychelles followed invitations from the Government of Seychelles to Chief Emeka Anyaoku, the Commonwealth Secretary-General, and Dr Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the Secretary-General of La Francophonie, to send observers to the elections. Following consultation between the two Secretaries-General, a decision was taken to send a joint Assessment Mission from both organisations to visit Seychelles from 1 to 5 February 1998. The mission comprised two staff members from the Commonwealth Secretariat, a representative of La Francophonie and an official from 1'Agence de la Francophonie.
