US: Electoral college declares winner of election
The electoral college has confirmed Joe Biden, the candidate of the Democratic party as the next US President on Monday.
The victory of Joe Biden was formalised by the electoral college, killing every hope of the Republicans overturning the election results.
Joe Biden who polled over 270 electoral college votes will take over the White House on January 20.
Meanwhile, President Trump has sacked Attorney General Bill Barr after he contradicted his (Trump) claims that the presidential election was marred by fraud.
He announced on Twitter, “Our relationship has been a very good one. Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family.”
Despite the announcement by the Electoral College, President Trump has yet to concede.
Reacting to the development, Biden said, “Democracy prevailed. We the people voted…. The integrity of our elections remains intact.
“Now it is time to turn the page, to unite, to heal. I will be a president for all Americans.”
