Rival Opposition Candidate Tshisekedi Wins Congo Presidential Elections

Kinshasa, The Constitutional Court of the Congo

announced today the victory of Rival Opposition Candidate Felix

Tshisekedi in the presidential elections, which was run last month.

The verdict came after the court rejected an appeal by Democratic

Republic of Congo opposition leader Martin Fayulu in the election


Fayulu claimed that Tshisekedi and outgoing President Joseph

Kabila had a secret deal after initial results showed that Emmanuel

Ramzani Chadari, Kabila’s favorite candidate, came third.

Western countries have not yet congratulated Tshisekedi on his

victory, as France has expressed concern about the official results, in

which Chisekedi won.
