The results as published do not match the data collected by our own observation mission,” Marcel Utembi, the head of the country’s National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO) said

‘All eyes on the court’ The DRC has been tense in recent days with rising violence across the country raising fears of a breakdown of law and order, similar to the violence that broke out in the central African country after the 2006 and 2011 elections

There have been isolated incidents of post-election violence around the nation of 80 million people, and on Friday, police confronted opposition protesters in the eastern city of Goma, killing at least one person

Al Jazeera‘s Haru Mutasa, reporting from DRC capital Kinshasa, said judges were expected to meet early next week to go over the supposed evidence that claims Fayulu won the election

“If the judges feel there is no case they will throw the matter out. Felix Tshisekedi will be declared the president-elect and will be sworn in on January 18

190110182555428 “If that happens, some people fear Fayulu could tell his supporters to go onto the streets and there could be an of escalation violence. Not just in Kinshasa, but elsewhere around the country. So a lot of people are calling on the Congolese people to remain calm

“But all eyes will be on the court when they do meet, and a lot of people will be wondering how independent they are going to be”
