- Joe Biden's campaign has called for the approval for an official transition of power
- The team of the US president-elect made the appeal despite the fact that President Trump has not yet conceded
- According to Biden's campaign team, America's national security and economic interests depends on a smooth transfer of power
In spite of the political intrigues surrounding the presidential election, the head of the US general services administration has been urged by the campaign of US president-elect Joe Biden to approve an official transition of power.
According to Reuters, Biden’s campaign on Sunday, November 8, made the appeal to Donald Tump's political appointee despite the president's refusal to concede.
Biden's campaign team went on to warn that national security and economic interests in the country depended on a clear signal that America would engage in a “smooth and peaceful transfer of power.”
A spokeswoman for Emily Murphy, the GSA administrator who was appointed in 2017 by Trump said that “a winner is clear” has not yet been determined. However, the spokeswoman declined to comment on when a decision could be made.
This is stalling Biden's team’s access to millions of dollars in federal funding and the ability to meet with officials at intelligence agencies and other departments.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that a Republican lawmaker, Senator Lindsey Graham told President Trump not to concede the presidential election to Biden.
Graham who made the statement during an interview on Fox News claimed Trump has not lost the US election and urged him to fight hard.
Similarly, other groups of Republican lawmakers who reportedly backed the stand by Graham are suggesting that the election is not concluded.
One of the lawmakers, Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) told George Stephanopoulos of the ABC that Trump should challenge issues with the election.
In a related development, Trump released a series of tweets accusing the Democrats of perpetrating voter fraud and outrightly called them thieves.
He doubled down on his claim that the election was stolen and added that he has affidavits confirming that voter fraud took place.
He cited mail-in ballots as the problem saying they were not properly authenticated especially in cities like Philadelphia.
