image of Violence in South Africa: The Report of the Commonwealth Observer Mission to South Africa

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

At their last summit in Harare, Zimbabwe, in October 1991, Commonwealth Heads of Government gave a mandate to the Commonwealth Secretary-General to visit South Africa and explore with the principal parties concerned ways in which the Commonwealth could assist in lending momentum to the negotiating process. In July 1992, during his third such trip to that country, the Secretary-General proposed to the Government and principal parties that a multidisciplinary team of Commonwealth experts provide practical assistance to arrest the ongoing violence, which had emerged as the key impediment to negotiations.
