20 January, 2019 - 08:32

Martin Fayulu, an opposition leader in the Democratic Republic of Congo declared himself as the only legitimate president of the country on Sunday.

His reaction follows a ruling by the Constitutional Court confirming Felix Tshisekedi as winner of the December 30 polls.

“ The Constitutional Court has once again confirmed that, like the CENI, it is at the service of a dictatorial individual. It is neither more nor less a constitutional coup d’etat, because it brings to the supreme magistracy a non-elected “, Fayulu said.

Fayulu asked the International community not to accept the verdict by the country’s Constitutional Court.

“I ask, moreover, to the whole of the international community not to recognize a power which has not neither legitimacy nor legal standing to represent the Congolese people “, he said.

Martin Fayulu also called on the Congolese people to organize peaceful protest across the country to protest against the ruling by the Constitutional Court.

Fayulu petitioned DRC’s Constitutional Court on Saturday January 12 to challenge results that declared another opposition leader, Felix Tshisekedi as winner of a delayed presidential election.

DR Congo Top Court upholds Tshisekedi presidential election win

20 January, 2019 - 08:18

The Constitutional Court of the Democratic Republic of the Congo confirmed Felix Tshisekedi’s presidential election win on Sunday while dismissing a challenge from another opposition leader Martin Fayulu who had accused him and the ruling party of stitching up the result.

The Court “proclaims by a simple majority Félix Tshilombo Tshisekedi President-elect of the Democratic Republic of Congo”, said the institution’s President, Benoît Lwambwa Bindu.

With this announcement, Tshisekedi becomes the fifth President of the Democratic Republic of Congo since independence on June 30, 1960.

Tshisekedi is to succeed the outgoing Head of State Joseph Kabila, who has been in power since the murder of his father Laurent-Désiré Kabila 18 years ago on January 16, 2001.

This is the first time that power has been passed peacefully from one man to another in this turbulent country’s history.

Tshisekedi’s swearing-in is scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, according to the latest calendar of the National Independent Electoral Commission (Céni).

Tshisekedi, 55, is the son of the historic opponent Etienne Tshisekedi, who died on February 1 2017 in Brussels. He succeeded his father as head of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS).

Tshisekedi will have to work with a Prime Minister from the current pro-Kabila party, who obtained a vast majority in the National Assembly according to the Electoral Commission.
