The US Congress has certified the Electoral College win of Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris officially making them the next president and vice president of the United States, after a chaotic day of protest on the Capitol Hill which saw pro-Trump rioters breach the building.
The certification finalises the 2020 US electoral process and ensures that Biden and Harris will be inaugurated on January 20, despite Trump’s weeks-long efforts to overturn the vote, including urging his supporters to converge on the Capitol on Wednesday, resulting in rioting inside and outside the building.
