BREAKING: Joe Biden elected as America’s 46th President

International news organisations are projecting Joe Biden, candidate of the Democratic Party, as the winner of the 2020 US presidential election.

CNN, NBC, the BBC and Associated Press are some of the global media organisations that have called it for Biden.

In a news broadcast, CNN declared Biden ”elected president”.

The US election, held on Tuesday, has been a roller-coaster of surprises.

Biden defeated US President Donald Trump, candidate of the Republican Party, in states that are Republican strongholds.

Biden, former US vice-president, has garnered more popular and electoral votes than Trump. Though final vote collation is still in progress in some counties.
