Felix Tshisekedi has vowed to be the president "of all Congolese" after the Democratic Republic of the Congo's (DRC) electoral commission declared him the winner of the country's long-delayed election.

The result was announced in the early hours of Thursday but has been rejected by rival Martin Fayulu, who was backed by opposition heavyweights and had led in polling prior to the December 30 vote.

Jordan Anderson, country risk analyst for sub-Saharan Africa at the IHS Markit consultancy, talks to Al Jazeera about how the election results will impact the country's opposition.
