The transition to the administration of President-elect Joe Biden remained in political limbo on Sunday, a day after tens of thousands of supporters of President Donald Trump flooded into the nation’s capital to echo his baseless accusations of electoral fraud.
The Democratic former vice president, Mr. Biden, has spent days huddled with advisors as he weighs who to name to his cabinet, fields world leaders’ congratulatory calls and maps out the policies he will follow after being sworn in on 20 January. He is scheduled to continue to meet in private with advisors on Sunday.
The Republican Donald Trump, meanwhile, declined to accept and instead pushed false charges of fraud, stalling the usual course of the government planning for a new presidential administration.
His campaign has filed lawsuits in many states seeking to overturn the outcomes, but without success, and legal analysts claim the litigation has little chance of changing the result of the election on 3 November.
Election officials of both parties have said there is no evidence of major irregularities.
