About eleven Senators and senators-elect of the Republican Party have vowed to prevent the swearing-in of President-elect, Joe Biden.
Biden, who contested the November 3, 2020, presidential election on the platform of the Democratic Party and defeated the incumbent President, Donald Trump, is scheduled to be sworn in on 20th January 2020.
But top Republican senators and a few newly elected ones said they shall appeal the upcoming certification of the result of the election.
The senators are led by Texas Senator, Ted Cruz.
In a joint statement on Saturday, they said that they’re going to vote against the certification of electors from states where Trump has disputed Democrat Biden’s victory.
Recall that up so far, President Trump has not conceded defeat even after losing most of the lawsuits he filed challenging Biden’s win.
In justifying their plans, the Senators claimed that the election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lacked enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.
“We shall vote on Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until (an) emergency 10-day audit is completed,” they said within the statement.
In a similar but separate action, another Republican lawmaker, Senator Josh Hawley had vowed to hitch with some Republican House of Representatives members to object to the certification of the election results.
