A Philadelphia court, in an important decision, thwarted US President Donald Trump’s attempt to reverse the election results. Rejecting Trump’s appeal to stop the process of authenticating the election results in the state of Pennsylvania, a third-appellate circuit court judge wrote in a 21-page ruling, “The president is elected by the voters, not the lawyer.”
Attempts to cancel certification of voting results in Pennsylvania were reprimanded by the judge’s team, saying that no election could be called unfair. Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote in a unanimous verdict that fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy and this process cannot be stopped.
Four days earlier, Trump’s rival Joe Biden was declared the winner in Pennsylvania against whom he went to court. The judge who pronounced the judgment was appointed by Trump. But Judge Stephanos Bibas said, “The allegations of bias are serious, but the election will not be called biased, there must be clear allegations and evidence to support them.” There is nothing of these here.
America’s newly elected Vice President Kamala Harris said that Joe Biden is such a leader whose world will be respected. Praising 78-year-old Biden, who won the general election, Harris said he would be president of all Americans. Bharatvanshi Kamala Harris tweeted, ‘We know he will be the President who is the best of us. Such leaders whose world will be respected and our children will take inspiration from them.
Newly elected President Joe Biden called for unity in the country in several tweets. He said, “This is our time to write a new, bolder and better history in this country so far, this time belongs to all of us.” He said, “It is the responsibility of everyone to stop the pace of Corona, we are united to stop it with our doubled efforts.”
