US Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden has won the United States election vote recount in Georgia.
According to a report by BBC, the former Vice President beat US President Donald Trump in the election in Georgia by 12,284 votes, in the audit required by state law.
The recount found the error rate was maximum 0.73 percent and that Biden’s gap of victory over Trump remained at under 0.5 percent.
Biden noted that Trump knew he was not going to win and had shown “incredible irresponsibility”.
The Democrat’s margin in overall votes in the November 3 poll exceeds 5.9 million.
Biden’s win by the US Electoral College system is projected to be 306 to 232.
Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, insisted that the hand audit of ballots did not favour Biden.
In a statement on Thursday, he noted that Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results.
“This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time”, Raffensberger said.
The General Services Administration (GSA) however is yet to recognize Biden as the President-elect.
