The United States Congress certified Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next president and next vice president respectively of the country.

The electoral votes were approved Thursday after both the Senate and the House of Representatives rejected the objections to the votes in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

This event that is usually a mere ceremony in Congress was interrupted Wednesday when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol.

The session resumed and continued overnight after the building was recovered after an operation that left four dead.
