THE Indian government today handed over 6000 bottles of indelible ink that can be used for 2018 Fijian General Elections.
In handing over the 60 boxes, India’s High Commissioner to Fiji Vishvas Sapkal said they were committed to provide possible assistance as such to the Fijian Elections Office.
Indelible ink is a semi-permanent ink or dye that is applied to the forefinger (usually) of voters during elections in order to prevent electoral fraud such as double voting.
The total cost of the indelible ink is valued at $260,334.
