Opposition leaders in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have chosen the businessman Martin Fayulu as their candidate in December’s presidential election.

Fayulu will be up against the governing coalition’s pick, former interior minister Emmanuel Ramazanishadary.

The outgoing President Joseph Kabila is not seeking re-election.

He refused to leave office after his term ended in 2016 and officials said at the time it was too dangerous to call an election.

The selection of 61-year-old Fayulu came after days of talks between seven opposition leaders in the Swiss city of Geneva.

Voters go the polls in DRC on 23 December.
