Biden says election victory 'clearest demonstration of people's will'

Washington, Dec 15 (TIWN) Hours after the US Electoral College officially certified his victory in the November 3 presidential election, President-elect Joe Biden called his and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris's triumph as the "clearest demonstration of the will of the American people".
