The Mission had been invited by the Governor, with support from the Premier and the Leader of the Opposition, and was conducted by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association British Islands and Mediterranean Region (CPA BIMR). Its remit was to assess the elections against international standards, commitments and obligations as well as domestic laws.
Shortly after Election Day the Head of Mission, Hon Fatoumatta Njai from The Gambia, said: “The British Virgin Islands has delivered a well-administered election, which was carried out in a calm and professional manner. Polling staff were well-trained, diligent and helpful, and efforts to promote voting by elderly voters and persons with disabilities were commendable.”
The Mission’s full report is publicly available and follows the preliminary statement published shortly after Election Day.
