Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera has congratulated United States of America president-elect Joe Biden.
“Congratulations to United States President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris.
I know that under your leadership, Malawi-USA relations will continue to thrive,” President Chakwera posted on facebook.
Biden was elected president of the United States on Saturday, defeating President Trump after campaigning on a promise to restore civility and stability to American politics and to expand the government’s role in guiding the country through the surging coronavirus pandemic.
Biden, 77, who will become the 46th president and the oldest man ever sworn into the office, secured 273 votes from the Electoral College after Pennsylvania was called for him, though the race was far closer than many Democrats, Republicans and pollsters had expected.
