Paragraph 40

Several amendments, but primarily the amendment to Article 102 of the Electoral Code, introduce the inking of voters’ fingers, which is a previous recommendation for security against fraud and increasing public confidence.[9] These are welcome amendments. The introduction of this measure also provides for safeguards regarding the provisions for inclusion of voters on the voter list at polling stations on election day (para 17).
