KINSHASA - Election results handing Congo President Joseph Kabila re-election are "totally unacceptable," the campaign president for main opposition challenger Etienne Tshisekedi said on Friday.

"It is a totally unacceptable result. You can just look around Kinshasa or the rest of the country to see how many people are against these results. The population is totally disoriented," Alexis Mutanda told Reuters, minutes after the national election commission issued the results.

He said Tshisekedi's UDPS party had not decided on its next move, but had "no faith" in the credibility of the Supreme Court charged with ratifying the provisional results.
