The members of the United States Electoral College are widely expected on Monday to officially recognize Joe Biden as the next PONTUS, despite the refusal of incumbent President Donald Trump to accept defeat.
The Washington Post reports that each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia has certified the November 3 election result.
Joe Biden won with a record of 51.3% or 81.3 million votes of those casts, while Donald Trump got 46.8% or 74.2 million votes.
But in America, Presidents are chosen by indirect universal suffrage, and each state will allocate its electors to the candidate that carried the state.
Biden was confirmed to be victorious after getting 306 of the electoral votes, while Trump got 232, with 270 required to be declared the winner in the election.
Members of the Electoral College will meet on Monday to conclude the process, though the electors will meet separately in each state.
Biden will deliver a speech to celebrate the latest news confirming him as the winner in the evening.
