§ Mr. Corbyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reports he has received from observers to the recent elections in Nicaragua; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Sir Nicholas Bonsor
The 93-strong EU observer mission, including Dr. David Browning from Oxford university as the United Kingdom's independent observer, concluded that the elections, although not flawless, were conducted in a fair and transparent manner and contributed to the further consolidation of democracy. The Organisation of American States observer mission took a similar view. Dr. Browning has reported separately that the Nicaraguan people were allowed a free, fair and secret vote. Copies of the EU declaration and a of Dr. Browning's report will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
