The Electoral Observation Mission of the Organization of American States (OAS/EOM) to The Bahamas, led by its Chief of Mission Sherry Tross, began its deployment today ahead of the May 10 general elections.

Tross, who is also the Ombudsperson of the Organization, arrived today in Nassau and will lead a team comprised of 11 experts from Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, St Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago, United States and Venezuela. This afternoon, the Chief of Mission and Parliamentary Commissioner Sherlyn Hall signed the Electoral Procedures Agreement that establishes the conditions for the work of the Mission in The Bahamas.

The OAS/EOM will focus on analyzing key aspects of the electoral process including electoral organization and technology, campaign financing, the participation of women and the division of electoral boundaries. In addition, the delegation will gather information about the status of the recommendations made by the OAS Mission to the 2012 elections.
