DR Congo’s President Felix Tshisekedi has won a second term in office with a landslide victory.
According to provisional results announced on Sunday, Tshisekedi had won 73 percent from the single-round presidential ballot, in a vote which opposition leader have dismissed as a “sham”.
The Democratic Republic of Congo’s Constitutional Court is expected to confirm the provisional results on January 10.
The 60-year old Tshisekedi, first came to power in January 2019 after a disputed election that many observers said he had in fact lost.
Moise Katumbi — a wealthy businessman, football club owner and former provincial governor — was the election runner-up with about 18 percent.
