(Washington) The Republican senator will object to the confirmation given by the US Congress on Wednesday of the outcome of the presidential election, which may delay Democrat Joe’s victory, but does not prevent it. Biden.
Republican-elected officials elected to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives have already announced that they will object to the confirmation of the victory of Donald Trump, who is still running for office. But Senator Josh Haley first said this in the upper house of the Republican majority.
In the United States, a White House tenant is elected by indirect universal suffrage, and on December 14 the Electoral College approves the victory of Joe Biden. 78-year-old Democrat Donald Trump won by 306 votes to 232.
The House and Senate are scheduled to meet on January 6 to verify the results, and the process is usually formal.
But Donald Trump still refused to acknowledge his defeat and filed dozens of legal appeals with his allies, which the courts rejected because of a lack of evidence.
The outgoing president is very popular with Republican voters and many big names in the Grand Old Party are following him in this challenge. Among them, young Senator Josh Haley has reached 40 as the presidential candidate in 2024.
“At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of election fraud and take steps to ensure the integrity of our election,” he said in a statement that he would object to the verification of the results.
This objection provokes debate and a vote in the Senate, forcing Republicans to speak out publicly on the election of Joe Biden. This does not prevent the Democrats from finally being confirmed as winners.
When asked about this objection, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed confidence: “I have no doubt next Wednesday. […], Joe Biden, by Electoral College vote confirmation, confirmed as 46E President of the United States, “she told a news conference.
The Democrats won a record 81.28 million votes or 51.3% of the vote, compared to Donald Trump’s 74.22 million (46.8%).
