WASHINGTON, US: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden asked American citizens to exercise calm and restraint while votes are being counted across polling centres in the country.

So far, Biden is leading in the elections whereas President Trump refuses to concede. 

Pennsylvania’s election commissioner said that Biden is leading in key Trump states such as Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and Georgia. 

Trump has an advantage in Arizona whereas Biden has the advantage in Nevada. 

Biden promised that he will tackle major issues such as the struggling economy, climate change and systemic racism.

After seeing Biden go ahead in key states, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, called Joe Biden the “president-elect” of the United States.

Pelosi said that Joe Biden is a unifier, who is determined to bring people together.

Because he is leading in Pennsylvania would be enough to put Biden past the magic number of 270 votes in the state-by-state Electoral College.

In India, renowned sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik highlighted the dilemma of millions who are eagerly waiting for the final result of the US Elections.
