How does Felix Tshisekedi's poll victory in DR Congo add up?


The electoral commission said Mr Tshisekedi had received 38.5% of the vote on 30 December, compared to 34.7% for Martin Fayulu, another opposition figure. But Cenco, which said it had 40,000 election observers who had visited all 75,000 polling stations, has not released its data. Three diplomats speaking anonymously to the Reuters news agency said the Church's tallies showed that Mr Fayulu had won. The observers were prohibited by law from releasing their findings before the electoral commission had announced the official results. Mr Tshisekedi, the leader of largest opposition party which had faced repression at the hands of the Kabila regime, has denied the allegations of rigging.
