The Libyan central committee for municipality elections said due to anti-coronavirus measures in the country, the use of newly-developed electoral ink, or indelible ink, will be registered for the first time in Libya.

The committee posted on social media a video explaining the use of electoral ink, which had been developed into a spray instead of the classic way: dipping fingers in ink.

The step comes, the committee added, as part of improving elections' processes in Libya, taking into consideration the preventive measures against Covid-19.

It also indicated that the newly-developed electoral ink will be first used in upcoming municipality elections so that voters can ensure their own safety as they cast their ballots amid fears of Covid-19 infections.
