Wow! These preliminary results show that the people who voted want change. Bad! (Bad = Good)

What was the registered voter turnout (%)? 007 in Africa seems to think that the turnout was low in Kinshasa. Is that true?

I don't know who 007 is, but there has been no official numbers on Kinshasa yet. From what I hear from people, it was about average.
