Following an invitation from the Guinean authorities, the European Union established a mission to observe the presidential elections held in the Republic of Guinea on 11 October 2015.

The mission, which comprised a core team, long-term observers and short-term observers from EU Member States, was led by Frank Engel, a Member of the European Parliament from Luxembourg. The observers were deployed throughout the country and interacted with electoral officials, candidates, political parties, civil society representatives, the media and Guinean voters.

Their mandate was to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the electoral process and to verify its compliance with domestic laws and regional and international commitments for democratic elections to which Guinea has subscribed.
