Cook Islands Elections 2014 in brief

This paper provides a summary of the management and conduct of the 2014 Parliamentary Election. It does not seek to propose alternative systems nor recommend reforms but rather, the paper highlights some of the legal, administrative and logistical processes that went into delivering the 2014 national election.

 Cook Islands have had parliamentary elections since 1965 and elections have been a significant event in the life of the people of the Cook Islands. This event ranks among the most complex and massive logistical exercise a nation undertakes working under tight timelines.

 The conduct of the election is in accordance to the Electoral Act 2004 and to operationalise the act is a challenge faced by the Electoral Office. This operation would not have been possible without the support and cooperation of the men and women appointed (list appended to this brief). In this period, my office delivered the 2014 election and has prepared a state of readiness to administer a by-election on relatively short notice.

 I would like to acknowledge the reviewers, who provided valuable feedback to me while putting together this document and to Ms Michelle Aisake, my coordinating editor for her help throughout the process.
