Congo opposition leader vows to challenge election results in court
January 12, 2019
(CNN)Congo opposition leader Martin Fayulu said Friday he will challenge the country’s election results in court as he accused presidential winner Felix Tshisekedi of taking a “dangerous shortcut to power.”
Fayulu told CNN the results from the December 30 vote are “not consistent with the truth” and vowed to go to court Saturday morning in the capital of Kinshasa.
He was widely expected to win the election but suffered a shocking defeat Thursday when the electoral commission for the Democratic Republic of the Congo announced Tshisekedi’s victory.
