Carter Center Statement on Disinformation About the Dec. 20 Elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

(En français)

ATLANTA — The Carter Center is aware of some disinformation about the Dec. 20 elections that has been falsely attributed to the Center.

Disinformation is false information designed to cause harm, gain political power, or make a profit. The Carter Center rejects all forms of disinformation.

The Carter Center publishes its statements and reports on and on its official social media accounts. The Center’s international election observation mission encourages everyone to fact-check online reports that claim to be from The Carter Center by visiting the website or @CarterCenter on X to confirm whether the purported information truly came from the Center.

On Dec. 5, The Carter Center published an interim report (PDF) on the election process.
