Martin Fayulu was the clear victor of the Democratic Republic of Congo's presidential elections last month, a Financial Times analysis of two separate collections of voting data shows, contradicting claims from authorities that rival contender Felix Tshisekedi had won the historic vote.
Accompanied by his wife and his lawyers, Congo opposition candidate Martin Fayulu, right, petitions the constitutional court following his loss in the presidential elections in Kinshasa, Congo, on January 12, 2019.
Leaked data attributed to the commission shows that Fayulu easily won.
The person, who is close to Mr Fayulu's camp, asked for anonymity because the data contradict the electoral commission's official declaration. Neither side has acknowledged the accusations.

Neither the African Union nor other members of the worldwide community had publicly commented on the court's decision by Sunday morning.
The court said Tshisekedi won with more than 7 million votes, or 38 percent, and Fayulu received 34 percent.
It went on to declare "Felix Tshisekedi president of the Democratic Republic of Congo by simple majority".
Tshisekedi and Kabila's political parties refused to engage with leaked data from the election commission and the largest election observer mission, called Cenco, that showed Fayulu winning the December 30 election with around 60 percent of total votes.
With that perhaps in mind, Tshisekedi's party sharply rejected the AU's attempted intervention.
He called on the Congolese people to mobilise and defend the mineral-rich country's sovereignty.
Tshisekedi's supporters were celebrating the court decision in the streets of Kinshasa.
