The Electoral College has confirmed the victory of the democrat candidate, Joe Biden in the just concluded Us presidential election which puts him on line to be the next US president.
California, the most populous state in the US, delivered its 55 electoral votes to Mr. Biden on Monday afternoon, officially taking him over the 270 votes needed to secure the White House.
The Democrat won November’s contest with 306 electoral college votes to Republican Donald Trump’s 232.
Under the US system, voters actually cast their ballots for “electors”, who in turn, formally vote for candidates weeks after the election.
On Sunday, the president tweeted: “Votes cannot be certified. This election is under protest!”
The Congress will meet on January 6 to certify the electoral college votes.
Joe Biden and his vice Kamala Harris are set to be sworn in at noon on January 20, 2021.
