Joe Biden has officially been elected as the 46th president of the United States of America after defeating Incumbent President, Donald Trump in a fiercely contested presidential election.
Biden secured 284 of the required 270 electoral colleges to defeat Trump who has 214.
The Democratic candidate, 77, was projected to have surpassed the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to win his hard-fought matchup with incumbent Donald Trump.
The 74-year-old Republican has not conceded defeat and vowed to pursue a number of legal challenges in several battleground states.
Trump also sued Kathy Boockvar, Pennsylv ania’s secretary of state, and a handful of county boards of elections, alleging they had run an unfair election in the state.
The Trump campaign is asking the court to issue an emergency order stopping election officials from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the state, and a permanent injunction requiring county election boards to invalidate ballots that were allowed to be “cured”.
Trump has refused to concede defeat in the US presidential election, even though Biden declared victory on Saturday after US media networks projected him as the winner. The Trump campaign has made unsubstantiated claims about widespread voter fraud and launched legal challenges in several key battleground states.
