PETITION TO BE ADMITTED: Constitutional Court Set To Examine Opposition Candidate’s Appeal Against Presidential Election Results

Opposition presidential candidate Theodore Ngoy has appealed against the recent fraudulent presidential election results that saw Fèlix Tshisekedi re-elected.

Ngoy has filed his petition before the Constitutional Court contesting the legitimacy of the results in an election that was marred by several irregularities.

The Congolese Constitutional Court have since admitted Ngoy’s case and set Monday, 8th January 2024 as the date to preside over the petition.

The court has seven days, in accordance with the Congolese law, to examine petitions filed to contest the regularity of the results.

Various stakeholders including the United States and CENCO-ECC have thus far advised for thorough examination of the irregularities that affected the electoral process that could have compromised the legitimacy of the results.

Several opposition candidates including popular figures Moïse Katumbi, Martin Fayulu and Dénis Mukwenge have called for the cancellation of the election that was shambolically organized by the Independent Electoral Commission (CENI).
