By | May 5, 2010

From the BBC:

A team of observers from Commonwealth countries has arrived in the UK to watch how the election is conducted and suggest how it could be improved.

It will be the first time a Commonwealth team has observed elections in a developed country.

They will observe candidates’ campaigns, polling stations and the count, before submitting final reports.

Already voter apathy in the UK has surprised the 11 observers from Africa and Asia.

The team includes

young parliamentarians from from Bangladesh, Kenya, Rwanda, Ghana, Jamaica, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
