Washington, Dec 1.- Authorities in the state of Wisconsin, in the United States, officially declared Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential elections on November 3, after completing a partial recount.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers issued a statement saying he had certified the results, as required by state and federal laws.
I signed the Certificate of Verification declaring Joe Biden as president-elect and Kamala Harris as vice president-elect, he said.
He thanked clerks, administrators, and poll workers across the state for working tirelessly to ensure a safe and efficient election.
Evers' announcement comes hours after Arizona officials confirmed Biden as the winner in that state as well.
While this type of official certification is often a formality, the act is now of greater importance due to the current US President Donald Trump's attempts to challenge the election results and his allegations of fraud.
The Republican leader, who in the 2016 elections won in Wisonsin and Arizona, has affirmed without proof that there was widespread fraud in these elections.
According to the website of the newspaper The Hill, Trump said he will file a lawsuit in Wisconsin tomorrow.
Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia and also certified to Biden as the winner of the elections, while the legal challenges of Trump failed.
The US president's legal team filed lawsuits in Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Arizona, and many of those cases were dismissed.
Despite this, the Republican president told Fox News on Sunday that he is hopeful his case will reach the Supreme Court. (Text and photo: Granma)
