Voters across the continent are heading to the ballot box during 2020 to choose their leaders in presidential, parliamentary and local elections, starting with the Comoros in January and ending with Ghana in December, raising a big potential problem with fake news.
Dídac Sanchez, CEO of Eliminalia, and with more than 10 years’ experience in digital solutions, says: “Of course, this is an issue of fundamental importance to democracy, because it can skew and influence election results.
