Emerging report indicates that about 11 Senators and Senators-elect of the Republican Party in the United States of America, USA, have vowed to stop the swearing-in of President-elect, Joe Biden, of the Democratic Party.
Joe Biden, who contested and won the November 3, 2020, Presidential election, defeated the incumbent President, Donald Trump, and is scheduled to be sworn-in on 20th January, 2020.
However, top Republican Senators, and some newly elected ones, have said that they intend to appeal against the upcoming certification of the outcome of the election.
The Senators are led by Texas Senator, Ted Cruz.
In a joint statement on Saturday, they said that they will vote against the certification of electors from States where President Trump has disputed Biden’s victory.
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 intend to vote on January 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.”
