In this paper approximate analytical expressions which take into account the effects of plasma birefringence during Faraday rotation measurements are derived. It is found that the errors incurred by neglecting them may be significant. Furthermore it is shown that, by measuring both the rotation and the ellipticity, each polarimetric channel could provide up to five measured constraints for the MHD equilibrium construction.
