The SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation, has deployed the SADC Electoral Observation Mission to Lesotho, to observe the country's National Assembly Election, scheduled for 3 June.
According to a press release from SADC, the Electoral Observation Mission has been deployed on invitation of the Independent Electoral Commission of Lesotho, and will be led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation of Tanzania.
Observers are drawn from SADC Member States; and comprise Members of Parliament, Members of Security Sectors, and Members of national civil society organisations representing domestic electoral observation groups.
The practice of election observation in Member States is part of SADC's democratic culture and tradition; and is in conformity with the revised SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections.
After voting day, the Mission will release a Preliminary Statement on 5 June, while a final Mission Report on the election will be released three months after the announcement of the results.
