TSHISEKEDI’S FAKE POLL DISCREDITED: Carter Center Deny Opinion Poll Claiming Tshisekedi Has 55% Favorability In Next Week’s Election

US non-governmental organization The Carter Center have moved to deny and discredit a fake opinion poll forecasting outgoing President Fèlix Tshisekedi as winner of the 2023 General Elections.

To support his rigging ploy, Tshisekedi recently had GeoPoll publish fake statistics estimating him to be winner of the upcoming elections by 55% with The Carter Center tagged to have verified the polls.

However, the Carter Center have since released a statement to rubbish the information by GeoPoll and insist that the organization has not verified any stats forecasting Tshisekedi as winner of next Wednesday’s polls.

“The Carter Center is aware of some disinformation about the Dec. 20 elections that has been falsely attributed to the Center,” the Center writes.

“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 further advises that all of its statements are to be issued on their official website and social platforms.

“The Carter Center publishes its statements and reports on cartercenter.org 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.”

With just a week to go to the polls, Tshisekedi has come under heated pressure to manouvre his way back into power and resorts to several cheating schemes, including violence, to endorse his rejected candidacy.
