Where contentious elections present fears of vote tampering and other irregularities, the presence of election monitors may serve to prevent shenanigans and give parties greater confidence that the vote was free and fair.
Thirdly, although election monitoring and observation represent good practice at the micro level of democratisation, they have also tended to be used as part of the political conditionality and leverage through which industrial countries impose their hegemony over developing countries and thereby undermine their already enfeebled national sovereignty.
Election observation is seen by donor countries and the international community as a means to enhance democratization, but controversial issues include the mandates of the observers, the cases of its misappropriation by authoritarian governments, and its masking other interests of donor countries.

 April 2000: The Battle for London
The election has been transformed from what initially promised to be a rather dull affair into a bitter political battle, because the still highly popular Ken Livingstone decided to break with the Labour Party, and its fixed candidate selection process, and run for mayor of London as an independent.
London is Europe's largest and richest city, yet there are hundreds of thousands living in poverty while basic services and infrastructure have been slashed-leaving a crisis in housing, schools and transport, which is chaotic, dirty and underfunded.
London's hospitals are being handed over to private companies, while last year 57,000 National Health Service (NHS) patients had their operations cancelled (an increase of 12 percent), and after being placed on long waiting lists.

 City Mayors: London election 2004
The 2004 elections almost saw a repeat of the performance four years previously where Labour and Conservative were equally tied, the Liberal Democrats received seats proportionate to their vote share and smaller parties such as the Greens were able to break out of the ghetto of fringe politics and into the representative arena.
Labour may yet rue the day it decided to hold all of the 2004 elections on one date in order to boost turnout as Ukip now have two seats on the London Assembly and all that brings with it – legitimacy, mandate, staff, resources and votes.
Labour suffered a high profile loss in the elections in the form of (Lord) Toby Harris, the leader of Labour in the Assembly for the last four years and also Chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority for that period, who lost his constituency seat of Brent and Harrow.

 CNN.com - World - 'Red Ken' elected London mayor despite Blair opposition - May 5, 2000
LONDON (CNN) -- Ken Livingstone, dubbed "Red Ken" for his leftist views, became London's first-ever elected mayor, dealing Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair a grating blow three years into his government's rule.
Booted from the Labour Party when he stood for London mayor as an independent -- after failing to win the Labour nomination for mayor -- Livingstone complained that he was the target of an "absolutely vile campaign" from the Labour side.
The Tories had one stunning defeat, however, in a by-election to fill the Romsey Parliament seat of the late Michael Colvin, who died, along with his wife, in a fire at his Hampshire mansion.

Most Sahrawis (as the majority of persons living in the territory are called) live in the area controlled by Morocco, but there is a sizable refugee population near the border with Morocco in Algeria, and, to a lesser extent, in Mauritania.
At the invitation of Annan, the Government of Morocco and the Polisario met in London in May and again in June in an attempt to resolve the parties' longstanding differences over the settlement plan, and to explore other avenues to resolve their dispute over the territory; however, little progress was made.
There was also no progress during the year on local elections to choose members to the proposed new royal advisory council on the Western Sahara that the King had announced in October 1999.
