KINSHASA, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Losing Democratic Republic of Congo presidential candidate Martin Fayulu's campaign said on Friday its tallies showed he had easily won the election ahead of the official winner announced by the electoral commission.

Campaign official Fidele Babala told reporters Fayulu won 61.51 percent of the vote, while president-elect Felix Tshisekedi took 18.86 percent and ruling coalition candidate Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary received 18.49 percent.
