Azerbaijan to order ink and ultraviolet lamps for referendum
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 3 / Trend , J.Babayeva/
Azerbaijan will order invisible ink and ultraviolet lamps for the referendum from Denmark.
"Election facilities will be ordered from a Danish company. We are considering several types of invisible ink and ultraviolet lamps which will be used during the elections," Central Election Commission (CEC) International Relations Department Chief Rovzat Gasimov told Trend on Feb. 3.
Under Article 102 of the Azerbaijani Election Code, voters must dip their finger into ink when receiving a ballot. Ultraviolet lamps are used to determine if the individual has already voted.
The method is used to prevent one person from voting twice.
The procedure was already used during the parliamentary and presidential elections in Azerbaijan.
A referendum will take place in Azerbaijan on March 18 to amend 29 articles of the Constitution.
Thirteen initiative groups submitted signature lists to the CEC.
The CEC registered the New Azerbaijan, Shahar and Taraggi initiative groups. Abad Kand was not registered.
Some 113 initiative groups were registered at precinct election commissions.
The Constitution was adopted in 1995. Amendments and additions were made in 2002.
