Congo presidential runner-up asks court to order election recount

(CNN)The runner-up in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s disputed presidential election, Martin Fayulu, said Saturday that he had asked the country’s Constitutional Court to order a full recount.

Fayulu told CNN that Republican Guard soldiers and police had earlier surrounded his house and intimidated supporters who planned to accompany him to the court in the capital, Kinshasa.
“My lawyers, in order to avoid any surprises, decided to deposit the appeal files yesterday Friday 11th at 3:30 p.m. at the constitutional court. I have personally been there today at 3 p.m. in order to get back the receipt of filling, which is stamped as of 3:30 p.m., confirming that everything was done properly,” he said in a statement sent to CNN.
