DR Congo court upholds Tshisekedi presidential election win

0

The constitutional court in the Democratic Republic of Congo has upheld the victory of opposition presidential candidate Felix Tshisekedi.

The court rejected an appeal by Martin Fayulu, another opposition contender in the 30 December poll.

Mr Fayulu argued that Mr Tshisekedi had made a power-sharing deal with the outgoing president, Joseph Kabila. Mr Tshisekedi’s team denies this.

Despite the court ruling, Mr Fayulu said he was a “legitimate” president.

Mr Fayulu also urged the international community not to recognise the official election result.

The African Union (AU) said on Friday that there were “serious doubts” about the outcome of elections.
