US Election: Pennsylvania Republicans Sue To Block Certification Of Election Results
Some members of the Republican Party have continued to contest the result of the US presidential election which projected Democratic candidate, Joe Biden as the winner of the poll.
According to Bloomberg, a group of Pennsylvania Republicans has filed an emergency lawsuit seeking to block certification of the election results in favour of Joe Biden in the state.
The petition was filed in the state ahead of the Monday, November 13, deadline for Pennsylvania counties to certify their voting results.
A Trump ally, US Representative Mike Kelly, is reported to be among the plaintiffs seeking to stop election certification in the state.
The group is asking the court to declare Pennsylvania’s mail-in voting illegal and to block the state from going forward with certification.
Alternatively, the group asked the court to direct Pennsylvania’s state legislature to choose the state’s electors.
