Joint inspection team for Seychelles

The Commonwealth and its French-speaking counterpart, the Francophonie, have said they're sending a joint team of nine observers to monitor presidential and parliamentary elections in the Seychelles later this month.

This is the first time that the two organisations have decided to send a joint mission to a country which is a member of both.

The mission is led by a former prime minister of St Lucia, Sir John Compton.
