The recount of the US presidential election ballots in the state of Georgia confirmed the victory of Joe Biden, local authorities announced Thursday (November 19th).
The initial count only gave the Democrat some 14,000 votes ahead of rival Donald Trump, a gap so narrow that a hand recount took place. The gap has narrowed slightly, now just over 12,200 votes ahead for Joe Biden.
The difference between the two candidates is still very thin, President Donald Trump, who disputes his defeat, may however request a new recount, said a statement from the office of the Secretary of State of Georgia, in charge of the organization of the elections. .
