Congo Martin Fayulu leads in polls
The opposition candidate Martin Fayulu is a absolute favorite to win Democratic Republic of Congo’s delayed election on December 30, while the government candidate is only at third place, according to a recent poll.
“The polls reveal an electorate eager for change. A large majority supports the opposition,” Congo Research Group (CRG), which commissioned the polling on which the survey was based, said in a statement.
Fayulu, a former Exxon Mobil manager is a new face in politics, but his star was rising swiftly when he became a joint candidate of an opposition coalition in November, but extensive campaigning, including plagued with Ebola eastern regions, has since lifted his reputation.
