More time is needed for the full results of the US presidential election, but US President Donald Trump has already announced his victory over Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
According to foreign news agency Reuters, the Democratic Party had expressed concern a few weeks ago that Trump presidential would spare no effort to make the election results controversial.
After which the presidency can be determined only through the courts, politicians and the Congress.
Democrats feared that Donald Trump would announce victory in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin before the vote count was completed.
Nearby election results could lead to litigation in states over voting and ballot counting procedures.
Petitions filed by individual states will eventually reach the US Supreme Court.
As in the Florida election of 2000.
When Republican George W. Bush defeated Democrat Al Gore by just 537 votes after the Florida High Court recount closed.
Governors usually confirm the results in their respective states and share information with Congress.
But some academics have outlined a scenario in which the governor and the legislature presented two different election results as the election results approached.
Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and North Carolina have Democratic governors, while Republicans control the legislature.
According to legal experts, it is not clear in this scenario whether Congress should accept the governor’s election slate or not exactly count the state electoral votes.
Both Biden and Trump claim victory
On the other hand, US President Donald Trump has claimed a major victory in the presidential election and accused the Democrats of trying to steal the election after his rival Joe Biden claimed victory.
“We are moving towards a big victory but they are trying to steal the election, we will not let them do that,” Donald Trump said in a Twitter message after Biden claimed victory for his supporters. Yes, you can’t vote after the polls are over.
Claiming action against false information, Twitter immediately removed Trump’s tweet in which he accused him of rigging the election.
US President Donald Trump has long accused unsubstantiated allegations that “mail-in ballots” are a way to deceive the public in elections.
