At the invitation of the Government of Guyana, the European Union established a mission to observe the parliamentary elections there on 19 March 2001.

This election was a critical step in the consolidation of Guyana's democracy, which had faced challenges since the transitional 1992 election.

The observers were deployed throughout the country. They met government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.
