Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo is a Congolese politician who has been the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 24 January 2019. He is the leader of the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), the oldest and largest party of the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is also the son of late Étienne Tshisekedi, a three-time Prime Minister of Zaire and opposition leader. Tshisekedi was the UDPS party's candidate for president in the December 2018 general election, which he won, despite accusations of irregularities from European and Catholic Church election monitoring organizations. His victory was upheld by the Constitutional Court of the DRC after another opposition politician, Martin Fayulu, challenged the result. Recently, he has named his coalition partner and political heavyweight, Vital Kamerhe, as his Chief of Cabinet.
