Updated: 05-01-2019 23:52 IST
Preliminary results from the Democratic Republic of Congo's Dec. 30 presidential election will be delayed past Sunday's deadline, the head of the election commission, Corneille Nangaa, told Reuters on Saturday.

He said the commission, known as CENI, had received only 47 percent of vote tally sheets as of Saturday, and did not know when the results would be ready. (Reporting By Giulia Paravicini; Writing by Edward McAllister; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
