Joe Biden says the results of the 2022 mid-term congressional elections could be challenged

Congress 2022

US President Joe Biden has admitted that the results of this November's mid-term congressional elections could be challenged if the country fails to reform its electoral law. The US leader said this at a White House press conference on Wednesday.

Biden was asked whether he was considering the possibility that the results of the midterm elections could be invalidated. "Yes, I think they could easily be invalidated. Imagine if former US President Donald Trump managed to convince former Vice President Mike Pence not to approve the results of the January 6, 2021 electoral vote in the presidential election," Biden addressed the reporters.

He said that similar attempts could be made in the congressional elections in autumn 2022, which theoretically have a chance of succeeding. Joe Biden believes that the possibility of contesting the midterm elections "depends directly" on whether the US will reform its electoral law.

Last Thursday, the US House of Representatives approved a ballot reform bill introduced by Democrats, but it stands little chance of being passed by senators because it is strongly opposed by Republicans. The initiative, the Democrats say, is meant to protect Americans' right to free expression of their will.

A number of American states, where Republicans are in power, last year tightened the rules concerning control over voting, including by mail. Republicans attributed this to the need to prevent electoral fraud.

However, Democrats claim that their opponents are taking these steps to make it harder for certain categories of citizens to vote. The bill in question is aimed, in particular, at counteracting such measures.

The mid-term elections for the US Congress will take place in November 2022. All 435 members of the House of Representatives and 34 senators will be elected.

Currently, the Democrats hold a majority in the lower house of Congress, while there is parity in the Senate, with each of the two parties holding 50 seats. Trump has previously suggested that the Republican Party could win control of the US House of Representatives in the 2022 elections and that the Democrats, including Biden, would be politically ruined.
