Congo : Opposition leader challenges election result

Democratic Republic of Congo opposition leader Martin Fayulu says he will challenge the official election result at the country’s constitutional court, as one of his campaign aides claimed his candidate had won in a landslide.

Preliminary results announced early Thursday by Congo’s electoral commission said another opposition leader, Felix Tshisekedi, had come first in the Dec. 30 presidential election with 38.6% of the vote.
