Congo Court declares Felix Tshisekedi is elected President

Congo Court declares Felix Tshisekedi is elected President

Congo's Constitutional Court has declared the election of Felix Tshisekedi as the President and has rejected the challenges to the vote by runner-up Martin Fayulu.

The court’s declaration came shortly after the African Union in an unprecedented move asked Congo to delay announcing the final election results, citing “serious doubts” about the vote.

It planned to send a high-level delegation on 21 Jan to find a way out of the crisis, fearing unrest spilling across borders of the vast Central African nation.

The country of 80 million people, rich in the minerals key to smartphones around the world, is moving close to achieving its first peaceful, democratic transfer of power since independence in 1960.

Its capital is Kinshasa.
