DR Congo's surprise winner: Observers question Felix Tshisekedi's provisional victory

On paper, DR Congo's provisional election results read like a good news story for Africa, with Felix Tshisekedi paving the way for the nation's first-ever peaceful transfer of power since independence from Belgium in 1960. But just how many ballots were counted in the provinces that voted for the other main opposition contender, Martin Fayulu? Is it, as he claims, an electoral coup? After a flawed vote and a protracted ballot count, what to make of an election two years overdue?
