On Tuesday, the United States General Services Administration (GSA) has finally recognized Joe Biden, the Democratic Party candidate, as the apparent winner of the November 3 U.S. 2020 presidential election.
The GSA agency acknowledged on Monday, the following weeks of inaction.
With the recent development, a formal transition process has begun in earnest, giving Joe Biden, the Democrat, and his team access to current agency officials, briefing books, and other government resources, including some $6 million in funding.
According to the report, this happened hours after Michigan’s Board of State Canvassers had voted to certify the election’s results and after about 9 Republican Senators sent a letter calling for the transition process to begin.
The GSA chief, Emily Murphy, said in a letter to the Democrat on Monday, “Because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request.”
Yohannes Abraham, Executive Director of Biden-Harris transition, while reacting to the announcement, said it “is a “needed step” to “getting the pandemic under control and U.S. economy back on track.
“In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests, and gain a complete understanding of the Trump administration’s efforts to hollow out government agencies.”
