The Election Experts Mission (EEM) arrived in Swaziland on 17 August 2013 for the first round of elections, known as Primary election, and left the country on 2 September 2013. On 15 September 2013, the two-member team returned to the country for the Secondary Election and departed on 26 September 2013.

The purpose of the Mission was to collect factual information concerning the electoral process, in line with the criteria contained in the Commission Communication on Electoral Assistance and Observation. The Mission maintained contacts with government and election officials, representatives of unregistered political parties, the media and civil society. Both on the Primary and the Secondary elections, the Mission visited polling stations in the four regions of the country – Lubombo, Hhohho, Manzini and Shiselweni – departing from its center of activities in the capital, Mbabane.
