“We believe that such a considered response is necessary having regard to this being the first time such a mission was invited to our country and having regard to the fact that the general election resulted in change of administration,” Mitchell said to the OAS August 1, 2012.

“We come here to recommit our country to deepening democracy within our borders, a process that has been ongoing since 1729 when the first Parliament was established in Nassau.”

The report, which was accepted by The Bahamas government “without reservations” will be utilized by the government to plot the process of continued reform of the electoral process, he said.
