Congo’s Catholic Church, one of the country’s most respected institutions, challenged Thursday’s official results from a chaotic presidential election. The church suggesting its tally did not give victory to opposition leader Felix Tshisekedi. Though bishops stopped short of naming a winner, the announcement sets up a potential showdown with President Joseph Kabila’s government. Many fear this could provoke more violence in the vast and volatile nation of 80 million people. The electoral commission (CENI) announced Wednesday that Tshisekedi had won the Dec. 30 vote, edging out another challenger, businessman Martin Fayulu.
