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 invitation to the Commonwealth from the Government of Kenya to observe the first multi-party elections in almost 30 years followed a decision by the Government in December 1991 to begin the process of transition from a single-party to a multi-party democratic system. It coincided with a renewed Commonwealth commitment by Heads of Government at Kuala Lumpur in 1989 and at Harare in 1991 to assist member countries in the promotion of democratic processes. In support of that commitment, the Commonwealth has in the past two years sent observer missions to Malaysia, Bangladesh, Zambia, Seychelles, Guyana and Ghana.
