GDP in DR Congo
DR Congo - GDPOpposition candidate Felix Tshisekedi clinched a surprise victory in the country’s long-awaited presidential election held on 30 December. Tshisekedi comfortably beat rival opposition candidate Martin Fayulu, who led the polls prior to the vote, thus sparking allegations of electoral fraud from Fayulu’s camp and the Catholic Church, which claim that the official count was inconsistent with leaked voting data. Despite mounting international pressure for a recount, the country’s Constitutional Court has nevertheless rejected Fayulu’s appeal for a recount and upheld Tshisekedi’s victory. While mining activity remains strong, uncertainty over the handover raises concerns over the potential hit to investor confidence that could jeopardize future investments.
