Washington, DC – IRI today issued the following statement regarding the exit poll it conducted in conjunction with Kenya’s December 27 elections.

“IRI conducted an exit poll in conjunction with Kenya’s December 27, 2007 elections.  Release of the poll was initially delayed due to incomplete data.  Once all the data was received and a review of the poll was conducted, serious issues were raised.

“Issues that have arisen include:

“As a result, IRI does not have confidence in the integrity of the data and therefore believes the poll is invalid.  The Institute will not release a poll it believes is invalid and in which we do not have full confidence.”
