The electoral commission in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday announced that opposition leader Felix Tshisekedi won the Dec. 30 presidential election in what was a surprise victory. Corneille Nangaa, the commission’s president, announced the delayed results, saying Tshisekedi received 38.6 percent of the more than 18 million votes cast. He had broken away from opposition efforts to unite behind a single presidential candidate shortly before the election.
