Joe Biden defeats President Donald Trump to become 46th elected President of the United States of America.

The US election committee declared the veteran Democrat the winner of the grueling campaign for the American presidency.

Biden is all set to lead a polarized nation through a historic collision of health, economic and social crises.

The former vice president will enter the White House on Jan. 20.

Biden is the oldest person to assume the office at the age of 78.

Biden had a 273 to 214 lead in the state-by-state Electoral College vote that determines the winner, having won Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes to put him over the 270 he needed.


His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their election victory.

Sheikh Mohammed said, “Congratulations to the President-Elect of the United States @JoeBiden and Vice President-Elect @KamalaHarris. We look forward to strengthening our five-decade enduring and strategic relations.”


His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, also congratulated Biden and Kamala.

Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed said on Twitter, “Congratulations to @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris on winning the US elections. Our sincere wishes for further development and prosperity for the American people. The UAE and USA are friends and allies with a strong historic partnership that we look forward to strengthening together.”

Shouts cheers and fireworks in many US cities over Biden victory

Tallies from Edison Research and most major news outlets showed Biden with 273 Electoral College votes, with Pennsylvania's 20 votes giving him the decisive edge.

It takes 270 Electoral College votes to win.

Trump, who has made repeated claims of electoral fraud, immediately accused Biden of "rushing to falsely pose as the winner."

"This election is far from over," he said in a statement.

US Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris on Saturday called on Americans to "get started" with the work ahead after networks projected that Democrat Joe Biden, her running mate, defeated Republican incumbent Donald Trump.

"This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. It's about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it," tweeted Harris, a US senator from California and the first woman of color to be elected to the vice presidency.

"We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let's get started."
