Addis Ababa, Ethiopia | AFP | The African Union has canceled a delegation in the Democratic Republic of Congo on the country's disputed presidential elections after the Constitutional Court declared Felix Tshisekedi the winner, said a source of the UA on Sunday.

At a summit on Thursday, UA leaders cited "serious doubts" over electoral data and asked to delay the final results.

The European Union is in agreement with the evaluation of the UA, a spokesman said.

But the 16-nation Southern African development community congratulated Tshisekedi, a long-standing leader of the opposition, on Sunday for being elected president-elect and called for a peaceful handover of power.

The mission of the African Union in Kinshasa, led by the president of the UA Paul Kagame, the Rwandan president and the president of the AU Commission Moussa Faki of Chad, had been set for Monday.
