Us election: GSA refuses to acknowledge Biden’s projected victory
General Services Administration (GSA) is yet to formally recognize the Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden, as president-elect.
GAS is the agency that must formally acknowledge election winners before they can commence transition tasks.
The projected winner has however, assembled transition team to work out processes of transferring power from the incumbent president, Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, Biden said. “We’re already beginning the transition. We’re well underway,” he said. “The fact that they’re not willing to acknowledge we’ve won is not of much consequence.”
However, Biden’s team is considering filing a lawsuit against the GSA.
This week, Richard Pilger, a senior official of the Department of Justice resigned.
His exit followed Attorney General, William Barr’s directive for probe of alleged irregularities in the presidential election.
Meanwhile, United States election security officials have stated that the 2020 presidential election was the most secure in American history.
The Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee (GCC) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) made the declaration in a joint statement.
“This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.
“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too,” the statement read.
Their position negates President Donald Trump’s insistence that Joe Biden did not win.
Trump maintains that he won on legal votes and has filed lawsuits against the Democrats.
