US wants 'clarification' on DR Congo vote results, urges calm11 January 2019 | 00:12 | FOCUS News Agency
"The National Independent Electoral Commission has announced provisional results, but we await clarification of questions which have been raised regarding the electoral count... We urge all stakeholders to remain calm as the process continues," State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement.
The commission gave Tshisekedi 38.57 percent of the vote, just ahead of Martin Fayulu with 34.8 percent -- but the runner-up immediately cried foul, branding the results "an electoral coup".
