Congo: African Union cites ‘serious doubts’, urges delay to final Congo election result | Reuters

The final tally is scheduled to be released by the election commission once the constitutional court has ruled on challenges to the provisional results on Friday, but the union called for this to be postponed following a meeting in Addis Ababa.
