Despite widespread irregularities reported by the main observer group, Tshisekedi’s opponents, including top opposition candidates, have called for a re-run, refusing to recognize the landslide victory. Small-scale protests were dispersed by the police in eastern cities.

Tshisekedi pledged to address economic challenges and security issues during his new term, emphasizing job creation and a restructuring of the security and defense apparatus.

The inauguration faced criticism from opposition figures, and concerns about electoral integrity persist.
