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.

Introduction

The presence of a Commonwealth Observer Group at the December 1996 Presidential and Parliamentary elections in Ghana followed a request on 2 September 1996 from the Government of Ghana to the Commonwealth Secretary-General. In response to that request, the Secretary-General sent a Commonwealth Secretariat Planning Mission to Ghana on 14-19 October 1996. It met representatives of all the political parties fielding candidates, as well as some which were not, and other groups with an interest in the elections.
