Opposition candidate Felix Tshisekedi wins DR Congo election

(CNN) — Opposition candidate Felix Tshisekedi has won the Democratic Republic of Congo’s presidential election, according to the country’s electoral commission.
The results came in the early hours of the morning in the Central African country, after nearly two weeks of speculation and reports of election irregularities. If deemed legitimate, this will be the country’s first democratic transition of power since it gained independence from Belgium in 1960.
