Open Letter to Electoral Candidates & Parliamentary Representatives on the Impact of Deepfakes on Electoral Outcomes


As part of our efforts to prevent the misuse of digital technologies in the run up to and during the 2024 General Elections, we have prepared an Open Letter to electoral candidates, political party members and parliamentary representatives on the potential impact of deepfakes on electoral outcomes. In this letter, we urge them to declare that they will not use deepfake technologies to create deceptive or misleading synthetic content in context of their candidacy for the 2024 Elections. The focus of the letter is on how political actors may use such technologies, rather than regulatory interventions.

We are inviting organisational and individual signature(s) to the Open Letter to strengthen the representation by Saturday, February 10, 2024, 11:59 PM. Please sign using this survey link and share the letter within your networks.

Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] in case of doubts, queries, feedback or suggestions.
