Joe Biden elected president of the United States

Joe Biden has been elected as the next president of the United States. The American people and the world have been waiting for days as counting slowly proceeded in a number of marginal states where the vote was close, but at around 1730 CET, the main US networks, including CNN finally declared the election a Biden victory.

Joe Biden is 78 years old and is a catholic.

Whilst the vote in the electoral college was close, Biden has won with a margin of several million votes nation wide. He has actually secured more votes than any other US presidential candidate in history.

The election was marked by a bitter election campaign, with incumbent president Donald Trump, alleging wide-spread election fraud, but being unable to offer any proof.

Kamela Harris will be the first woman of colour to occupy the post of Vice president.
